WATCH: President Mnangagwa Mocks RTGS Dollars While Praising US Donation

President Emmerson Mnangagwa rubbished the US Dollars today while speaking during his visit to Manicaland to assess Cyclone Idai damage and assistance being rendered. He was praising the 2.5 million US Dollars donated by the United States.

Said Mnangagwa in Shona (translated):

The really exciting thing is the Trump story. Do you know Trump? He’s the president of America. The ones that have sanctions on us. Yesterday, he sent his ambassador. He came with 2.5 million.  (laughs excitedly) 2.5 million of American dollars, not these RTGS$, no. USD Dollars! Real USD Dollars.

2.5 million and they said, “Here’s some help, but if you have other needs, we have a station in South Africa and we can give you more. The only issue is you should tell us what you need.”

This is the only problem we have, we just have to tell them what we need from Trump. (laughs) Things change (laughs). When some things go bad, it may cause other things to become good.

  1. You can not claim that US$ and RTGS$ are at par, so there is nothing bad for the president to praise the donations.

  2. What hypocrites, the Notre dam building burnt down and people cried like all French people have been killed by a nuclear bomb and by today more than 1 billion pounds has been raised .cyclone ida hit 3 African poor countries and donation were a drop in the ocean . What is 2.5 million dollars to cyclone ida . Black people lives dont matter. Buildings are more important than black lives
