President Mnangagwa last week received a five-star statue of himself that was carved in his honour by Masvingo artist Mr Silvester Mugari.

The statue, made from granite rock, was handed over to the President by Minister Chadzamira at Masvingo Airport soon after the Head of State and Government landed in the city to preside over the 13th Great Zimbabwe University graduation ceremony in his capacity as Chancellor.

Mr Mugari took two years to complete the statue, which weighs 2,4 tonnes and is 2,5 metres high. It also has a width of 1,2 metres. He began work soon after President Mnangagwa assumed power in November 2017.
