Zanu PF supporters yesterday walked out of President Mnangagwa as he was about to address them at Mutare Aerodrome.

VP Chiwenga had to order members of the national youth service to stop people from leaving and listen to his boss’ address. Newsday reports that Chiwenga claimed there were messages circulating on social media that some buses and a train were almost departing.

“Let’s reduce our walking. There is no bus that is going, let’s have discipline. There is no train or bus that were carrying people, please don’t follow the messages that are circulating. I want to urge you to sit down before our Honourable President Emmerson Mnangagwa can start to address us. Please, youths from national service, please, stop people from going away.”

Mnangagwa had to cut short his address. “I am cutting my speech short because weather experts told me that in 20 minutes there will be poor weather and I might fail to leave with my helicopter,” Mnangagwa said.
