A freudean slip, a guilty flip, or both? Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government spokesman Nick Mangwana yesterday unwittingly re-ignited the debate that Zambia has all this while over the years been Mnangagwa’s off-border territory. Mangwana tweeted saying Mnangagwa has returned to the country from another Zimbabwean territory.
He said: “His Excellency, President Mnangagwa is back in the country from Zimbabwe.”
Mangwana’s tweet comes at a time when investigations revealed how Mnangagwa for years personally abused Zambian state security to carry out crimes against humanity.
His announcement is likely to trigger a major diplomatic row between Lusaka and Harare.
