Mugabe’s travels draw criticism at home

100

HARARE – Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe’s continued travel has been drawing criticism.

Reports say he is on the move again, this time he’s flown to a conference in Mauritius.

This is the fourth international trip the president has made in just 19 days and it’s getting some Zimbabweans upset.

On social media, some Zimbabweans are calling him the flying president, or the visiting head of state.

President Robert Mugabe, who turned 93 last month, has already clocked up significant mileage in the first 19 days of March.

He’s already been to Singapore, Ghana, Swaziland and on Sunday he left for a conference in Mauritius.

The biggest criticism seems to be over how much these trips are costing, especially after reports said a plane had to be chartered from Bahrain earlier this month.

But the president’s spokesperson says that Mugabe’s critics have to realise that diplomacy costs money.
