President Emmerson Mnangagwa has explained the reason why he is always wearing the “Zimbabwean scarf”, especially when attending national events both locally, regionally and internationally.
He said challenges or no challenges, he remained proudly Zimbabwean adding that the scarf with the national flag colors that he wears all the time is a symbol of the pride he takes in being a Zimbabwean despite the challenges the country is facing
He said the scarf, which has become his trademark, distinguishes Zimbabweans at any platform.
Several people have been wondering why President Mnangagwa always wears a scarf and he made the clarification after being asked about its significance at the official opening of the 5th Global Business Forum on Africa in Dubai Monday.
“Let me say that for the past two decades, Zimbabwe has been in isolation, but now since the new dispensation which came about two years ago, we want to be embraced by the rest of the nations of the international community again.
“To do so, we must be distinct. If you look around, you can easily see that is a Zimbabwean. So it is easy for the rest of the nations to identify us. We want to belong to the family of nations. This is the flag of my country and we are proud to carry it.
“There is no other meaning except that we want to be distinct and say we are Zimbabweans, we are proud to be Zimbabweans and in spite of what is happening to my country, we still remain proud.”
