Ministry of Information Permanent Secretary Nick Mangwana has requested Zimbabweans to assist in the identification of a road that should be named after the President of the country Emmerson Mnangagwa.

Writing on micro-blogging site Twitter Mangwana said, "Of course a sitting President(and former ) is the only living person who should have a road named after them. If we were to name a road after HE President Mnangagwa, which road would that be, and why? Which other deceased luminaries are still to be immortalised this way?"

The request invited lots of backlash from Twitter users who questioned whether it was a priority of the government to rename roads instead of constructing new ones.

"Nick this level of pettiness is astonishing, naming of roads will not bring bread to the citizen's tables. Put your priorities right at the moment service delivery should be a priority subject. you and the government don't take people seriously."One Twitter user said.

Other users asked why the government wanted to rename existing roads created during the colonial era instead of constructing new ones.
