    Harare – President Emmerson Mnangagwa will travel to Namibia to strengthen bilateral ties as well as explore new avenues to boost trade, business and cooperation the Namibian government has announced.

    It becomes his second official visit, after he travelled to South Africa, which is Zimbabwe’s biggest trading partner, in late December.

    Since he was inaugurated, Mnangagwa has set about to promote investment, and improve regional and continental trade, while re-engaging western partners.
