'Reengagement Is Working', Meeting Boris Johnson Excites Mnangagwa

'Reengagement Is Working', Meeting Boris Johnson Excites Mnangagwa

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has said his re-engagement efforts are now bearing fruit after he was welcomed to the COP26 Summit by UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

Mnangagwa’s visit to Glasgow was the first visit to the UK by a Zimbabwe head of state in 25 years after Britain, other Western countries and the US imposed sanctions on the country over alleged human rights abuses and failure to make political and economic reforms.

In a tweet on Monday afternoon, Mnangagwa expressed gratitude to Johnson and Guterres for the gesture. He wrote:

Thank you to PM @BorisJohnson and @antonioguterres for welcoming me to #COP26.

As the first President of Zimbabwe to visit the United Kingdom in a quarter of a century, it is clear that re-engagement is working!

Meanwhile, ZANU PF supporters in the UK brought trolleys of high-end whisky to Glasgow, Scotland, on Sunday as they celebrated Mnangagwa’s arrival for the global climate summit.

Mnangagwa flew to Scotland on Sunday for the COP26 Summit on a private jet hired from Azerbaijan, a former Soviet Republic.

The luxuriously fitted Airbus A319-115 (CJ) costs an average of US$415,000 to hire for a one-way trip from Harare to Glasgow, the Scottish capital.

The estimate suggests Mnangagwa is spending close to USS$1 million on travel alone.

Professor of World Politics at SOAS, University of London, Stephen Chan said that United Kingdom (UK) Prime Minister Boris Johnson has no time to meet and talk to President Emmerson Mnangagwa at the UN climate change summit currently underway in Glasgow, Scotland.

The NewsHawks quoted Chan as saying Johnson has no time for Mnangagwa because he has key global leaders to engage on serious international issues. Said Chan:

Mnangagwa says he hopes to meet Boris Johnson. The best he will get is a handshake in the corridor or something equally brief.

Johnson has to have serious talks with [U.S. President Joe] Biden, [French President Emmanuel] Macron and [India’s Prime Minister Narendra] Modi. Zimbabweans have got to get used to it: in terms of importance, the country is rock bottom.

President Mnangagwa and his government has been desperately trying to use the COP26 climate summit to push their re-engagement agenda to end international isolation and their pariah status.

However, Zimbabwe’s diplomatic relations with the UK remain frosty despite the re-engagement efforts of late.

Mnangagwa’s visit to Glasgow was the first visit to the UK by a Zimbabwe head of state in 25 years after Britain, other Western countries and the US imposed sanctions on the country over alleged human rights abuses and failure to make political and economic reforms

PLEASE ALLOW ME TO PREEMPT WHAT PRESIDENT MNANGAGWA IS GOING TO BE TOLD BY PRIME MINISTER BORIS JOHNSON IF HE EVER MEETS HIM.

HE IS GOING TO BE TOLD TO UPHOLD THE RULE OF LAW IN ZIMBABWE AND TO IMPLEMENT ELECTORAL AND POLITICAL REFORMS. I DO NOT THINK PRESIDENT MNANGAGWA SHALL BE AS EXCITED AS HE IS NOW WHEN HE COMES BACK FROM GREAT BRITIAN. I SUSPECT HE SHALL COME BACK HOME WITH HIS HEAD DROPPED TO THE CHEST AND THE NATIONAL COLOURED FLAG-SCARF FOLDED AND POCKETED.

YOURS TRULY

IT IS SAID THAT PRESIDENT ED MNANGAGWA WAS EXCITED NOT BY ATTENDING COP 26 SUMMIT, BUT BY MEETING THE BRITISH PRIME MINISTER, BORIS JOHNSON.

IT IS FURTHER SAID THAT OUR PRESIDENT HIRED A FIRST CLASS AIRBUS FROM AZERBAIJAN TO TAKE HIM TO GLASGOW AT A COST OF NEARLY 1 MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS.

CAMARADA NICK MANGWANA IS ONE OF THE PRESIDENT'S ENTOURAGE. HE WAS MORE EXCITED THAN THE PRESIDENT BECAUSE HE WAS RETURNING TO HIS HOME COUNTRY, YES, I REPEAT, NICK MANGWANA WAS RETURNING TO HIS HOME COUNTRY. ON ARRIVAL AT THE AIRPORT, PRESIDENT'S DELEGATION WAS SHOWERED WITH JOHN WOFAMBA WHISKEY [ JOHN WALKER WHISKEY ].

WE ARE TOLD THAT PRESIDENT MNANGAGWA MET BRITISH PRIME MINISTER, BORIS JOHNSON. WE DO NOT KNOW FOR HOW LONG THEY MET. THAT IS IMMATERIAL, WHETHER THEY MET FOR 5 MINUTES OR MORE, IT WAS STILL A MEETING.

SOCIAL MEDIA IS STILL NOT PRIVY TO WHAT WAS DISCUSSED IN THAT MEETING, BUT WHAT IS CLEAR IS THAT THE EXCITEMENT HAS VANISHED INTO THIN AIR. FACES LOOK GLOOMY, BUT WHY ? COULD IT BE THAT PRESIDENT ED WAS TOLD TO FIRST ENFORCE THE PRINCIPLES OF THE RULE OF LAW AND IMPLEMENT ELECTORAL AND POLITICAL REFORMS ? TIME WILL TELL US.

WAS PRESIDENT MNANGAGWA'S GOVERNMENT ENGAGED, REENGAGED OR DISENGAGED ? LET US GIVE THE GUYS TIME TO SOBER UP FROM THE EFFECTS OF [ JOHN WOFAMBA ] WHISKEY. THEY ARE GOING TO EVENTUALLY OPEN UP. CAMARADA MANGWANA IS A BLABBER MOUTH.

YOURS SINCERELY
