Zimbabwean President sparks outrage after naming 10 roads after himself.Certainly it will keep tongues talking
Zimbabwean president, Emmerson Mnangagwa, has made known his decision to rename ten roads in eight urban centres after himself after stripping dozens of streets of their colonial identities and then renaming some of them after himself.
Former deputy prime minister in the inclusive government of 2009 to 2013, Arthur Mutambara, told TimesLIVE that the renaming of the roads in Mnangagwa’s name was meant to cover up his shortcomings.
“An incompetent Mnangagwa wants to immortalise himself. All the other name changes are to cover up this wicked ambition. Whether he falls or prevails, he wants immortality. Zimbabweans will be calling his name in eight cities every day, forever. That is the ‘big idea’ while the country degenerates into unprecedented political and economic mayhem,” he said.
