Asked by interviewer Vimbai Kajese about his relationship with his former boss Robert Mugabe during a dialogue was organised by Global Shapers Community in Harare on Thursday, President Emmerson Mnangagwa said he has no hard feelings toward Zimbabwe’s former leader whom he still talks with.
I am here because for the last 54 years he was holding my hand. To me he is my father, mentor, icon, revolutionary leader, but time comes when he gets influenced because, I believe, of age. Somebody described people who surrounded him as criminals. So, I do not believe that some of the actions made at the 11th hour were genuinely his own. I realised that things were not what I used to know. As a result of that, I have no ill feelings at all towards former President Mugabe. I chat with him.
