On Wednesday Angel revealed that he had a meeting with Nakamba at his residence. He posted on social media:
At my residence, The Angel Manor, here in [the UK] with Marvelous Nakamba @nakamba_marvelous discussing opportunities in our beloved country, Zimbabwe. Exceptional meeting we had and what I can say about Nakamba is “What a humble and knowledgeable Zimbabwean he is”.
He is raising our flag up high. I am also encouraged to note that there are a lot of well-meaning Zimbabweans in the diaspora with a strong desire to see Zim rise to the level of upper-middle-income economy status by 2030.
