Harare-Reports from Rwanda suggests that President Emmerson Mnangagwa was due to meet former British Prime Minister Tony Blair in Kigali Rwanda.
President Mnangagwa was attending the Rwanda Liberation Celebration Day at Amahoro National Stadium on Thursday.
Blair is currently an advisor to Rwandan President Paul Kagame and was reported to have said that he wanted to meet the Zimbabwean leader in Kigali.
President Mnangagwa is said to have agreed to the meeting however, the former premier failed to make it on time as Mnangagwa was leaving Rwanda for Zimbabwe.
Blair had sour relations with former president Robert Mugabe after he was accused of mobilising Western countries to criticise Zimbabwe’s land reform programme.
The former British premier’s government pulled out of talks to fund the Land Reform Programme in 1997, resulting in accusations of insincerity and meddling.
London subsequently withdrew development aid before imposing sanctions on Zimbabwe, leading to an angry Mugabe in 2002 at the Earth Summit in South Africa telling Blair to keep his England while he would keep his Zimbabwe.
