Harare  – Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa has taken his media savvy abilities to Facebook  – causing a stir  – and attracting more than 140 00 likes, since its launch in January 2018 - plus an avalanche of comments on his recent posts.  

In a recent video broadcast in January, Mnangagwa who also runs a Twitter account, responded to various people – adding that they should work together for the benefit of the nation.  

“I thank you for supporting me and the observation that you make that Rome was not built in a day,” he said. 

“And indeed, we won’t have the economy running over night. Challenges that we are facing are huge. They will require time and I believe that we are in the great course to correct the challenges facing the nation.

“But this cannot be achieved by me alone or by my small team. It requires the cooperation, advice and input of every Zimbabwean in the country who loves his or her country,” the President appealed.

In response, Tee C Gee suggested the President must improve his branding, including updating his old linen.

Mnangagwa did not take long to respond, saying “I’m a simple person from the rural areas of Zvishavane, but I value your tips and I will ask you to continue doing so. But my focus as President is to ensure I create jobs for you, I create opportunities for you.”

However, the post would garner in excess of 600 comments, 200 shares and 1 900 likes. Notable contributions originated from Cordelia Garwe, who enquired on the whereabouts of missing political activist, Itai Dzamara.

“Whilst you are still there can we talk about Itai Dzamara he was abducted by the government you saved for 37 years. When Mugabe was trying to kill you managed to escape. But poor man Itai Dzamara did not stand a chance. We want answers," asked Garwe.

Kudakwashe Mandianike added that, “No Garwe is right they must be an inquiry done for this matter and justice must be served.”

Another observer, Coccilaben Soko wanted to know about investments in the country.

“Mr President, we the Diasporan Zimbabweans want and desire a major part in Zimbabwe's development . We send so much money home, please create programs for investments for us."

Mnangagwa has gone a notch further to engage Zimbabweans, with his presence of Twitter and also offering interviews to a host of local and international journalists and media houses.

Zanu-PF party recently launched a campaign hashtag for Mnangagwa in  preparation of the 2018 elections, penciled for July.
