MDC top official Tendai Biti has criticised President Emmerson Mnangagwa for travelling to Angola for a SADC event when Zimbabwe was still mourning the loss of over 200 lives lost to Cyclone Idai.
Mnangagwa left for Angola to attend the official opening of the inaugural commemoration of the Southern Africa Liberation Day. He had declared Saturday and Sunday as days to mourn Cyclone Idai victims.
Writing on Twitter, Biti said Mnangagwa should not have travelled after declaring two days of mourning. Said Biti:
So the usurper declares 2 days of mourning. Our people did not require mourning. They required effective disaster management. They required schools to be closed & communities evacuated. This did not happen. Then the usurper has the indecency of running away during mourning. #Shame
