President Emmerson Mnangagwa is expected to undertake a state visit to China, Zimbabwe’s biggest current lender, early this year “to cement economic ties between the two countries,” an official said today.
Morgan Tsvangirai is not stepping down now and remains the Movement for Democratic Change leader and its presidential candidate for the coming elections, the party said today.
Opposition legislator Eddie Cross, who has been accused of being too close to new President Emmerson Mnangagwa, says Zimbabweans are now stuck with ED and have no choice but to make it work.
AIM-listed Premier African Resources says it will stop operations at its RHA Tungsten mine in Kamativi, until it agrees on a viable financing agreement with its partner, Zimbabwe’s National Indigenisation and Empowerment Board (NIEEB).
The elections directorate of the Movement for Democratic Change directorate led by Morgan Tsvangirai will meet tomorrow but it is not clear what it will discuss.
