Govt Clarifies What Z-RGM On New Zimbabwe Airways Plane Means

Transport and Infrastructure Development Minister Joram Gumbo has confirmed that Z-RGM which is written on the new Zimbabwe Airways plane is named after former President Robert Mugabe.

Speaking during an interview on The Platform hosted by Larry Kwirirayi on ZiFM Stereo on Monday evening, Gumbo said Government had decided to name the planes after Mugabe and his then two Vice Presidents Phelekezela Mphoko and Emmerson Mnangagwa. Gumbo however said they might consider renaming the one dedicated to Mphoko to either Constantino Chiwenga or Kembo Mohadi. Said Gumbo:

That was us. If you want to crucify me, crucify me for doing that. RGM is Robert Gabriel Mugabe and is not anything to do with the plane. You see on the planes we have written Mbuya Nehanda or Mosi a Tunya. What does that mean? It’s just a name that you give, it’s just an inscription that you give. For your information we had decided to put those acronyms for the three of our presidents. The President who was RG Mugabe and EDM- Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa who was Vice President and RP Mphoko who was another Vice President. So when we bring in the next plane my brother it will be EDM. The only other one that had not been inscribed for Mphoko I don’t know whether we are going to put on Mphoko or we’ll leave it. But the other one we have already given instruction to put it and finish it off with EDM…The other two we are now going to decide what to put whether to put the two Vice Presidents that are there…

  1. You guys you are fools you are a joke that is no longer funny. For that alone I don’t think you deserve to be given a chance to run the next government. Plus I will never see myself booking in any of your planes no matter how cheap you are.

  2. WTF
    Are you really fu**ing serious?

    Does this man listen to the bullshit crap that he churns out of his mouth? I can’t believe this mind boggling sh*t.

    This is enough reason for every normal and straight thinking Zimbabwean to vote Zanu out. Zimbabwe will never prosper or progress with this kind of bush style running of national affairs.

  3. The best thing is to keep quiet Gumbo. You are now sounding childish and clearly defending the indefensible.
    The truth is slowly coming out through your utterances.
    Mnangagwa and his Government do not need this at this juncture.

  4. Gumbo was paid to tell this nonsense, he is another corruption seed growing before our eyes. Can’t we get someone responsible enough to tell the nation the truth?
