Mnangagwa Says Govt 'Never' Asked China For $2 Billion Bailout Package
President Emmerson Mnangagwa has dismissed reports that the government of Zimbabwe ever asked for a US$2 billion bailout package from China.
Mnangagwa met Chinese leader Xi Jinping in September last year on the sidelines of the Forum on China-Africa Co-operation (Focac) in Beijing. While addressing the media at State House on Wednesday night, Mnangagwa said:
I have never asked for a bailout package. I read it in the newspapers. We want investments, not a bailout package. We need investments where it is a win-win situation.Feedback
Investors come and put their money and make profits while we have development in the country. So we never asked for a bailout package.
So we never asked for a bailout package from China, but we sought investments and we have succeeded in that regard.
