THE MDC has slammed President Emmerson Mnangagwa for spending time and scarce resources on a trip to Rwanda when the country's economy was crying out for urgent solutions from his leadership.

Mnangagwa Wednesday left for Kigali for the central and east African country's 25th liberation commemorations set for this Thursday.

However, the MDC saw everything wrong with a leader who was always ready to jump onto the plane to attend events that did not have a direct impact on the country's myriad problems.

Party secretary for International Relations Gladys Hlatshwayo told Wednesday that while international engagement was key to the country's economic development prospects, President Mnangagwa needed to prioritise spending valuable time at home and finding urgent solutions to the country's worsening economic challenges.

Mnangagwa took over power 2017 with a promise to dump his predecessor Robert Mugabe's habits his administration blames for plunging the once prosperous country into its worst economic crisis in 10 years.

However, his own frequent foreign jaunts are seen as a replica of Mugabe's globe-trotting habits.
