Equatorial Guinea leader gives visiting Zim president a mansion in Malabo

Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa is now a homeowner in Equatorial Guinea after that country’s president, Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, presented him with a villa, the state media in Zimbabwe reported.

Mnangagwa, 80, is on a three-day state visit to Equatorial Guinea, his second visit in two months, after attending President Nguema’s inauguration in December last year.

Mnangagwa was the only southern African leader at the inauguration after Nguema won a controversial election with a 99% majority.

The fully furnished home with a gymnasium and full staff complement dubbed “Villa Zimbabwe” in Malabo, the capital, will exclusively be used by Mnangagwa every time he is in the country, the Herald reported.

Maxwell Ranga, Zimbabwe’s west African envoy, said the home was a testament to good relations between the two countries.

Mnangagwa is in Malabo with his foreign affairs minister, Frederick Shava, and finance minister, Mthuli Ncube, as well as numerous senior government officials.
