Mnangagwa comes one on one with Zimbabweans

Harare- In what could be a first in Zimbabwe, President Emmerson Mnangagwa is to have a live radio interview where citizens will phone in to pose questions.

The live interview is penciled for this Friday on a state controlled radio station. The deteriorating economic situation will see the President coming one on one with an already angry citizen.

In a flyer already circulating on social media and a Twitter message, the State controlled station said the interview will give Zimbabweans a chance to interact with the President.

“We are proud to present President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s first Live radio interview on Friday the 14th of June at 1900hrs.

“This will be Zimbabwe’s chance to ask His Excellency anything,” read the announcement.

Fireworks are expected on the day as citizens will for the first time ask questions regarding the economic meltdown despite pre-election promises that he would transform the economy.

Prices of basic commodities have been spiralling beyond the reach of ordinary citizens whose salaries have been stagnant.

Fuel prices have increased three times in a space of five months with transport operators increasing bus fares.

In spite of reduction of fares by the Government owned Zupco buses transport has taken a toll on ordinary Zimbabweans.

The US dollar continues to be pegged at high rates on the parallel market, trading at RTGS $8, 80  against the US dollar.

The radio programme is slated for 7pm local time.
