EXILED social and economic rights activist, Pastor Evan
Mawarire says he has warned Nigerian business tycoon Aliko Dangote against
blindly pouring his investments into troubled Zimbabwe which he said was not
safe for foreign investments.
The #ThisFlag founder twitted Tuesday he met Dangote in the
United States of America where he took time to chat with the billionaire about
his business prospects in Zimbabwe.
“And then I told Aliko Dangote that in Zimbabwe government
loots investors’ money…,” said Mawarire who also posted images of him and
Africa’s richest black man.
This comes after Dangote has shown interest to invest in
cement manufacturing, coal mining and power generation in Zimbabwe.
He was in the country August last year where he met President
Robert Mugabe and other top government officials over his investment prospects.
Since his widely publicised Harare visit, little has been
heard of the tycoon with strong suspicions he has had a change of heart.
Mawarire, on his part, skipped the country via South Africa
in July this year to seek refuge in the US.
Before he left, he had given government sleepless nights
through his social media campaign for a massive job boycott to demand
accountable leadership from the Zanu PF government.
The Baptist cleric turned firebrand anti-Mugabe campaigner
has since continued with his campaigns in the safety of America.
He has since joined Zimbabwean based activist, Patson
Dzamara in New York to stage protests against President Mugabe’s government on
the sidelines of an ongoing UN General Assembly.
President Mugabe and his delegation are part of the world’s
greatest inter-state event.
Mawarire said they have since met some UN top officials in
attempts to impress upon world leaders to pressure the Harare administration to
give in to key reforms being demanded by the opposition back home.
