One Comment on “Mnangagwa To Check Progress of Kazungula Bridge, Project Will Result In Traffic Bypassing Zim

  1. I’m very disturbed by people like Obert Gutu for his attacks on the people’s choice. Can’t he see what multitudes see in Chamisa. Since the passing on of M R Tsvangirai and even he wasn’t yet pronounced dead, people a consensus that Chamisa should be the one to take the button from where Tsvangirai left and complete the race. Let’s not be misguided by the lost Gutu
