Tinashe Sambiri|Soccer fans have expressed mixed views on the donation of a replica jersey by Harare Giants Dynamos FC to Mr Emmerson Mnangagwa.
Last month, Mr Mnangagwa received a replica jersey from Bulawayo Giants Highlanders FC.
According to irate football fans, Mr Mnangagwa is using the popularity of the two soccer giants to gain political marks.
However, Presidential spokesperson George Charamba wrote on Twitter:
“The Club gave the President its iconic jersey bearing his initials. A few weeks back, His Excellency the President met with the hierarchy of Highlanders Football Club to listen to challenges they face in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic which has stymied contact sporting activities worldwide.
“Two key faces in Dynamos FC are former Minister of Information and Publicity, Hon Webster Shamu, and Cde Marechera, both war veterans. Cde Marechera who appears in the accompanying picture with Dynamos Chairman, participated in historic Zanla attack on Grand Reef Airbase, a mission which was led by late Paradzayi Zimondi, Augustine Chihuri.”
