President Emmerson Mnangagwa is scheduled to meet the minority white people community in Harare over the weekend, ZimEye.com is reliably informed.
A message being circulated amongst the white people in the country and copied to ZimEye.com indicates that Mnangagwa will meet the group on Saturday allegedly to hear concerns from the community which colonised the majority black people before independence.
Thousands of the white Zimbabweans left the country at the turn of the century when then President Robert Mugabe effected a ruthless and chaotic land reform programme which grabbed land from the white people and was given to the majority black people.
The message circulated to the community reads as follows:
“Good Morning Fellow Colleagues,
I hope this finds you well.
His Excellency President ED Mnangagwa has asked to meet all white Zimbabweans on 21 July 2018 at Borrowdale Racecourse in Harare at 8am. Also welcome are Zimbabweans of any other race.
As minorities in Zimbabwe we have never been given the chance to interact one on one with the President of our Great Nation. This is indeed a unique occasion which just shows us that our President is like no other President. His Excellency has promised that this will be one of many meetings with minority groups.
Please come out in your numbers to support this unique occasion. Let us unite behind President ED Mnangagwa.”
