Mnangagwa's government increased security to shield visiting Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni on Thursday, inconveniencing scores of Zimbabweans going about their own business in Harare's central business district.

Museveni, who arrived at the Robert Mugabe International Airport on Thursday, formally opened the 60th Zimbabwe International Trade Fair (ZITF) in Bulawayo yesterday.

Hours before Museveni arrived in the country, police and other State security officials had already cordoned off a local hotel, where the Ugandan leader was to stay before proceeding to Bulawayo for the ZITF official opening.

According to the pedestrians and motorists were barred from using Third Street, amid allegations of harassment of some members of the public by State security agents.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa's spokesperson George Charamba yesterday apologised for the 'temporary inconvenience' on members of the public, following the blockade.
