Mangwana said people should not waste time talking about luxuries such as sofas when the country is in mourning.

“Should we be talking of sofas when so many of our fellow citizens are missing? Should we be preoccupied with why there is a picture of people carrying a sofa when whole families have been wiped out by this catastrophe?

“The seating arrangement of people including that of the president is such a banal distraction in the context of this grand tragedy. There are so many angles of conversation but that one is not one of them,” said Mangwana.

According to reports by the Daily News “overzealous”, ruling party officials in the region acted on impulse to organise the sofas in an unsanctioned move that was meant to curry favour with Mnangagwa, “even though it was not appropriate”.
