The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) Alliance Presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa who wished his campaigns to sail on the back of Rwanda’s achievements by claiming he helped President Paul Kagame pressed a wrong button and his lies have been exposed.
President Paul Kagame has boldly said he had never met the Zimbabwean opposition politician nor does he know him. Kagame has advised him to first learn the spelling of his name.
“First my name is Kagame not Kagama, 2- I don't know this man and no discussion ever happened with him anywhere ...3rd Rw's ICT policy, projects and programme started before MDC formation and politics! I wish the people of Zim.well!” tweeted President Kagame.
“He's lying. Never heard of him. He has nothing to do with any part of our economy. And Rwanda's IT plans were already being implemented in the 90s. Before the MDC even existed,” said Yolande Makolo
Local media reportedly said that Chamisa told cheering supporters over the weekend that he helped Rwanda in kick-starting the ICT policies and alleged that he offered his contribution at the request of President Kagame.
“Look what my brother Paul Kagame (Rwandan leader) is doing for his country,” he told the cheering supporters. I helped him on his ICT policy, on how to turn around the country when we met in Geneva, Switzerland and he was happy with my presentation,” said Chamisa, New Zimbabwe quoted him.
“He (Kagame) asked and enquired about me from former president Robert Mugabe and he told him that I belonged to his party Zanu PF, but I told him (Kagame) there and there that I belong to MDC party led by the late Morgan Tsvangirai.
Chamisa is the main challenger of President Emmerson Mnangagwa, the ZANU PF flagger in the Zimbabwean Presidential election.
“The first thing we want to put to order is how the government operates and how the economy is run through the use of ICTs; Mnangagwa and his government do not understand this because they are still in the analogue era,” he told supporters.
