‘GLOBE TROTTER’ Mnangagwa “Spotted” In South Africa
President Emmerson Mnangagwa surprisingly turned up in neighboring South Africa Thursday to attend an outreach meeting organized for African leaders by the BRICS group.
The group brings together five major emerging economies – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
The Pretoria government’s department of international relations and cooperation (DIRCO) released a picture of Mnangagwa and the neighbouring country’s President Cyril Ramaphosa late Thursday afternoon.
This comes as SA President Cyril Ramaphosa is planning on coming to Zimbabwe next month on the 12th, and top of the agenda will be the issue of sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe by the US and its allies.

This was revealed last Tuesday by the South African Minister for International Relations and Cooperation, Lindiwe Sisulu, when she addressed journalists in Pretoria.
Reiterating South Africa’s calls for sanctions against Zimbabwe to be scrapped, Sisulu revealed that President Cyril Ramaphosa will next month lead a high-level delegation to Harare for a bi-national commission.
“We are preparing for a bi-national with Zimbabwe, on March 12th. Our President [Ramaphosa] will lead the delegation to Harare. I think sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe will be top of our agenda and we are putting them across in the world, because we believe that for as long as Zimbabwe has sanctions imposed on it, the possibility of recovering from its economic woes will remain very glim and dim,” said Sisulu.
