President Emmerson Mnangagwa has reportedly invited opposition leader Nelson Chamisa to grace the country’s 42 years Independence Day ceremony slated for Bulawayo.
President Mnangagwa said independence was brought about by all Zimbabweans, living or dead, and therefore invites all political parties, current and former government ministers to major celebrations.
According to government report, invitations have been sent out for the state reception this Sunday at State House in Bulawayo.
Zimbabwe Independence Day is April 18 and this year the country celebrates 42 years of freedom and majority rule.
“The President’s focus was on; all the political leaders of this country should be invited, both to the official reception which will take place on the 17th of April at State House in Bulawayo and Uhuru gala,” said July Moyo, the country’s Local Government and Public Works minister.
“Invitations have been sent to their offices and we started sending them out yesterday (Thursday). We have ensured that our officials have contacted all political leaders to let them know that their cards can be picked up here in Bulawayo or at their offices.
