The President of Zimbabwe, Emmerson Mnangagwa says he and the people of Zimbabwe are extremely happy and grateful for the love and support they were given from Nigeria when they were visited by flood.
The President showed his appreciation, when he accepted the federal government delegation which was led by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama on Wednesday at the State House in Harare.
He also thanked Nigerians for helping them with relief materials when they were visited by cyclone Idai.
“We are happy that the leadership of Nigeria has realised that their brothers and sisters here in Zimbabwe visited by cyclone Idai need assistance.
“They brought lots of medicines and other materials to be given to people who have suffered the devastation.
“And in my own view, this is a demonstration to the people of Zimbabwe a friendship and support from Nigeria which was a front line state during the struggle for apartheid.
“The bond between us is demonstrated by this support and assistance.
“So, to the people of Nigeria, I say the people of Zimbabwe are extremely happy and grateful for the support they have given to us.
“Most of us in my generation were trained in Nigeria, and that is why we are now independent and Nigeria and Zimbabwe have come a long way.’’ The President said
