Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa has reportedly disclosed that he offered President Donald Trump a piece of land in Victoria Falls to build a state of the art golf course.
Mnangagwa revealed his offer to Trump at the Zimbabweâ€™s Investors ForumÂ in New YorkÂ on Monday.
“When I was in Davos I met staffers from the Trump administration. I had hoped to meet President Trump but I had to leave before he arrived. But I told his people that if president Trump wishes, I will offer him ground in Victoria Falls in the national park.
“We have wildlife national park in Victoria Falls, but I had offered president Trump ground to build a state-of-the-art golf course so that as he plays, he can be able to see the big five,” Mnangagwa was quoted as saying.
The two countries have had a huge fallout after the European Union and the United StatesÂ imposed sanctions against Zimbabwe in 2000, as they accused ex-president Robert MugabeÂ of trampling on human rights, rigging elections and repression of press freedom –Â accusations that the nonagenarian denied.
The sanctions led to devastating economic challenges, with the country reportedly now sitting with about 85% unemployment.
According to DailyNews, Trump â€“ billionaire president â€“ owned at least 19 pristine and private golf courses around the world.
Trumpâ€™s business empire was influential across the world, said the report.
Mnangagwa was expected to give his first speech at the United Nations General Assembly this week.
He has also met with Zimbabweans in the diaspora and has given interviews to international media outlets that included CNN.
