Mnangagwa has been visiting West Africa to garner support from the whole continent against sanctions imposed on the country and also as a way to reach out to France. France is considered a key member of international financial institutions. Presidential spokesperson Mr George Charamba said
France is a key member of international financial institutions and it is important that we consolidate our interests and our message to Francophone Africa. We have been to Mali. We are now in Guinea Conakry and Guinea Conakry is critical to us because this is the past President of the AU. He (Mr Condé) also has clout in this sub-region.
