President Emmerson Mnangagwa at the Chicken Inn outlet in Chegutu

By Paul Nyathi|President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Sunday took his election campaign stunts a gear up when he “joined” the queue in a fast-food outlet in Chegutu.

Mnangagwa stormed a Chicken Inn outlet in the town and bought some lunch and even tipped a cashier. He brought the little town to a standstill after he commandeered his full motorcade to the Chicken Inn outlet in the town centre.

Hundreds jostled to capture the rare moment on their smartphones and they recorded the scene free of any interference from Presidential security details. Two weeks ago, a senior ZANU PF member in Masvingo was arrested after he made his way to Mnangagwa and took a selfie picture with the President.

Isabel Mtongerwa, the Chicken Inn cashier who served the President could not believe that she met him face-to-face.

“I could not believe that I was serving the President,” she said.

“He ordered a two-piecer and a minute maid, paid $3,75 with US$20 and told me to keep the change. He is very welcoming and makes you feel comfortable in his presence,” she said.

Management at Chegutu Chicken Inn could not believe a rare visit by Mnangagwa and his huge entourage of members of the CIO.

The food outlet’s manager Mr Peter Mutate said as an organisation, they felt honoured to serve the President.
“We can describe him as an amazing man, very friendly and free to interact with,” he said.

“Some of our staff members felt free to greet him. At the end of the visit, many people were left convinced that indeed the country is now witnessing a different political game.”
