VP Mohadi, who had a two-hour meeting over dinner with President Conde after the inauguration on Tuesday, described the visit to Guinea as “an eye-opener”.

In an interview at the RGM International Airport, VP Mohadi said: “What I experienced is not what I expected. I had dinner for two hours with President Conde and we discussed a number of areas of cooperation so that maybe, we can have a Joint Permanent Commission so that we have delegations from either side appreciating what we have here in Zimbabwe and in Guinea.
