Mnangagwa Listed On TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People In The World

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has been listed on TIME magazine’s 100 Most Influential people in the world. Mnangagwa is listed together with US-based South African comedian Trevor Noah.

Mnangagwa is listed in the leaders category, with the write-up on him by Zimbabwean pastor and activist, Evan Mawarire. Writes Mawarire:

The elation that greeted the end of Robert Mugabe’s 37-year reign naturally enough transformed into hopes for his successor. And in his first 100 days, Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa spoke of re-engaging, forgiveness, democracy and unity. But though words matter, so does the survival of a system that destroyed the hopes and dreams of generations. For four decades, Zimbabwe’s new President was the protégé of the dictator he eventually deposed. Mnangagwa says very little of his own volition. He waits for you to speak and only responds when absolutely necessary. As Mugabe learned, he is extremely patient, choosing his moments of response or retaliation carefully. Mugabe described him as a man who does not forgive or forget very easily. Maybe that’s why for years, Mnangagwa has kept his liberation war nickname, the Crocodile. The undeniable paradox of Zimbabwe’s moment of healing is that the doctor was once the butcher.

The TIME 100 list features individuals recognised for changing the world, regardless of the consequences of their actions. This year’s list includes Donald Trump, Rihanna and Oprah Winfrey.  Individuals or a group of people are exclusively chosen by TIME editors with nominations coming from the TIME 100 alumni and the magazine’s international writing staff.

  1. ED is a very forgiving man in Africa it has never happened that YOU let people who tried to murder you by poison live and a bloodless coup

  2. We the progressive national and global community are quite grateful to have this Visionary ED and equally the rare Redeemer Likes of Gen Chiwenga. May the Grace of Our Everloving Almighty Lord the God of Abraham be always upon us all in the Mighty name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen.
