Emmerson Mnangagwa – Zimbabwe
Zimbabwean president Emmerson Mnangagwa is in New York for his first UN General Assembly as head of state following his election victory in July after succeeded Robert Mugabe who was ousted by the military late last year.
He inherited several problems including a failed economy which have not gotten any better after months in office coupled with the wooing of investors to boost the economy.
Mnangagwa is expected to address the General Assembly this week as he is currently meeting Zimbabwean citizens in the United States to assure them of progress in the country.
Great to meet members of the Zimbabwean diaspora in New York. We truly are one nation, united in our hopes and dreams. We are embarking on a new journey of growth and development. It won’t be easy, but we must traverse it together.
Together we are stronger! pic.twitter.com/2JqQi40qAR
