Secretary for Information, Media and Broadcasting Services Mr George Charamba told The Herald that President Mnangagwa was never scheduled to address a rally in Hwange yesterday. He said Mnangagwa had gone for a ground breaking ceremony.
However, Zanu-PF supporters had gathered at Hwange Colliery Stadium expecting to be addressed by Mnangagwa after the groundbreaking ceremony. Said Charamba:
The President was never slotted to address a rally in Hwange today. He went in to simply ground-break for Hwange 7 and 8 and then rush back to Harare to meet two trade delegations that are in the country and of course to prepare for tomorrow’s (today) fixture.
