Cyclone Idai: Biti Slams Mnangagwa For Travelling To Angola During Mourning

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

  1. Some people criticize for the sake of it, negativity is as bad as witchcraft even munhu akaita zvakanakasei muroyi anongoroya that’s why they say muroyi haana mugoni, the president is at work just like anybody else. Kuchema tochema hama dzedu asi tichishandira nyika

  2. We are still mourning but ED has no powers to postpone the SADC event and he can not abscond the event. State affairs should run whilst we are mourning our relatives.
