President Emmerson Mnangagwa opted to hire a luxurious private plane to travel to China, abandoning the struggling national airliner Air Zimbabwe (AirZim), which has a plane of the same size albeit with no similar luxurious trappings.
In a cocktail of austerity measures meant to preserve thinning foreign currency - Mnagwagwa's administration announced early this year that they were opting for a smaller plane to save money - but this time around when he travelled to China on a State visit, he used an A/C type B767 -200, registration number P4 CLA, a luxurious plane from Bahrain, owned by Switzerland-based Comlux Aviation.
