President Mnangagwa Meets Chelsea Legend Didier Drogba

President Mnangagwa Meets Chelsea Legend Didier Drogba

President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Monday met Chelsea and Ivory Coast football legend Didier Drogba in Rwanda.

Mnangagwa and the once sensational football star are both attending the Africa Green Revolution Forum 2022, an annual nature-conservative summit, in Kigali.

Posting on his Facebook account Monday, Mnangagwa described Drogba as a true African hero. He posted a picture of himself with the football legend and captioned them:

A true African hero – thank you my brother Didier Drogba

There were no details of the two’s meeting.

Meanwhile, the meeting has angered some who believe Mnangagwa is using the international profile enjoyed by the much-loved European football celebrities to try and sanitise his image ahead of the 2023 elections.

One TiCCCh Ray said it was “terribly annoying how a hero and a man of Didier Drogba’s stature would allow himself to be used for pontification and optics.”

He added that the Ivorian international should be aware of the misrule in Harare, Zimbabwe, and the effects therefrom on the citizenry.

Others took the chance to speak about “bad” governance, the “collapsed” health sector, economic challenges and a “politicised” justice system.

Others, however, said the president was probably luring Drogba to invest in the Southern African country.

That's good a caption "TRUE African HERO" because some people proclaimed heroes are not True heroes.

It's true. Didier Drogba is indeed a true African hero. For a long time there was a civil war in Côte de Voir and it's Drigba who brokered peace while playing for Chelsea FC under the tutelage of Jose Maurinho.

The United Nations actually made Drogba the Peace Ambassador for Ivory Coast and he successfully chaired peace negotiations & unified his people. In addition, Drogba placed Africa on the international spotlight with his goal scoring talent and inspired many African Athletes.

there is nothing bad about him taking a photo with the footbal icon. He never said anything but just praising the ex footballer as a true African hero.It eludes my mind how some people find this offensive
