President Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa (pictured) has delivered a charming address to the delegates at the 30th session of the African Union summit in Addis Ababa Ethiopia Sunday.
Mnangagwa says Zimbabweans are seeing a glimpse of hope despite the new government has only taken few days in office.
The president also reiterated that the power transfer in Zimbabwe was peaceful and assured the continental body that his predecessor Robert Gabriel Mugabe is safe.
“May I inform this orgast chamber that your brother, former president Robert Mugabe is well, safe, secure and it’s my duty leading the current administration to preserve his legacy as the founding father of our Republic,” he said as a thunderous round of applause follows.
“The transition as you are all aware, was very peaceful and we are happy that as a nation we faced challenges, and as a nation we resolved those challenges and we have received support from my senior colleagues in the SADC and the continent,” he added.
Mnangagwa sought political authentication of his administration within the Southern African region and the World Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland and the AU summit provided just handed him opportunities to market himself on the global and continental political arenas.
