President Emmerson Mnangagwa has scoffed at allegations that he was stealing opposition parties’ ideas to augment his government programs.
His comments come after the MDC-T, a few weeks ago, said Mnangagwa had stolen ideas from their manifesto.
Mnangagwa was addressing Zimbabweans resident in Namibia on Monday after meeting President Hage Geingob on the third leg of his regional tour to appraise fellow SADC leaders on developments that culminated in his ascension to the Presidency.
The president has been to South Africa, Angola and Namibia so far.
In his address, Mnangagwa said, “Cde Mnangagwa has taken over our various manifestos. No! My administration addresses the national interests of our country and where the ideas of any opposition party coincide with national interests, that I take on board and it becomes mine and not theirs. Secondly, as a party, which is Zanu-PF, we are determined to walk the talk.”
