Zimbabwean president leads by example, joins clean-up campaign



Zimbabwe’s President Emmerson Mnangagwa donned protective clothing to take part in a national clean-up campaign in a poor area of the capital, Harare.

A video shared by the ministry of information shows the president sweeping up litter in a gutter. His face is obscured by a mask but you can tell it’s him because of his trademark scarf:

Mr Mnangagwa follows in the footsteps of Tanzanian President John Magufuli, who helped sweep the streets of the main city Dar es Salaam in December 2015.
