President of Zimbabwe, Emmerson Mnangagwa has invited US president Donald Trump to build a golf course in Zimbabwe.
The Zimbabwean President who has always said that “Zimbabwe is open for business” considers the invitation significant.
Mnangagwa’s offer to President Trump to build the facility at the tourist resort of Victoria Falls is to attract tourists and investors.
President Trump has several golf courses across the USA and elsewhere globally.
President Mnangagwa reportedly made the offer to Trump at the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland, in January.
He told investors at a meeting in New York this week that “I had hoped to meet President Trump in Davos but he [was] delayed and I had to leave before he arrived.
[But] I told his people that if President Trump would wish I would offer him grounds at Victoria Falls in the [wildlife] national park… to build a state of the art golf course. So as you play you can be able to see the big five [wild animals].”
President Mnangagwa said “American tourists are always welcome in Zimbabwe”. He is attending the UN General Assembly meeting in New York.
Mnangagwa was elected President in July despite his election victory challenged at the Supreme Court. He has promised to revive the country’s ailing economy.
He took over from former President Robert Mugabe who resigned from office.
