“I Am Reading All Your Messages On My Whatsapp”
President Emmerson Mnangagwa has thanked Zimbabweans for utilising his newly opened whatsapp number to engage with him revealing that while he will not be able to respond to all the messages, he will use the platform to listen to the people’s views and comments.
“As a listening president, I am fortunate to have so many possible channels of communication with the people of Zimbabwe.
Since opening my WhatsApp, I have received tens of thousands of messages. I am reading as many of your messages as I can, and while I cannot answer all of them, I will continue to use WhatsApp as a medium to listen to your views and comments.
Thank you for your engagement, and thank for your opinions. Together we are building a new Zimbabwe of dialogue and listening.”
Below are some of the responses by citizens to the message by Mnangagwa.
David Chidende: We don’t want you to only read our messages but also give feedback on the issues that would have been raised. Remember communication is a cyclic process that involves encoding and decoding the message as well as giving feedback. Never mind the noise, though kikik
Gakanje Kevin: we dont need your whatsapp number sir! we want jobs, cash in banks, ambulances, better health care, modern roads, safe water, dams. You are failing to hire a single temporary teacher.
