Zimbabwe’s President Emmerson Mnangagwa donned protective clothing to take part in a national clean-up campaign in a poor area of the capital, Harare.
A video shared by the ministry of information shows the president sweeping up litter in a gutter. His face is obscured by a mask but you can tell it’s him because of his trademark scarf:
Mr Mnangagwa follows in the footsteps of Tanzanian President John Magufuli, who helped sweep the streets of the main city Dar es Salaam in December 2015.
According to the responses on Twitter, people are not so impressed with the Zimbabwean president’s efforts.
@ssyyddoo tweeted: “Why not sweep the corrupt government and stop all this child play.”
And other people responded saying that the president should be focusing on the economy.
