Uebert Angel, Nakamba Explore Opportunities In Zimbabwe

Controversial preacher, Uebert Angel, met Aston Villa midfielder Marvelous Nakamba on Tuesday to discuss business opportunities in Zimbabwe.

Angel, who is Zimbabwe’s Presidential envoy and Ambassador-At-Large to the Americas and Europe, said he had a meeting with the Warriors midfielder at his residence in the United Kingdom, describing the indaba as “exceptional”. Angel posted on Twitter:

At my residence, The Angel Manor, here in [the UK] with Marvelous Nakamba @nakamba_marvelous discussing opportunities in our beloved country, Zimbabwe. Exceptional meeting we had and what I can say about Nakamba is “What a humble and knowledgeable Zimbabwean he is”.

He is raising our flag up high. I am also encouraged to note that there are a lot of well-meaning Zimbabweans in the diaspora with a strong desire to see Zim rise to the level of upper-middle-income economy status by 2030.

Meanwhile, respected journalist Nqaba Matshazi ominously noted that when Angel met English striker Saido Berahino in 2015, the latter’s football career fell apart. He tweeted:

The last time this guy met Sadio Berahino and his career took a nosedive. I’m not saying anything about Nakamba, just a recollection from 2015.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa appointed Angel his special envoy with the responsibility of seeking trade and investment opportunities.

Angel and his wife Beverly had an hour-long meeting with President Mnangagwa at State House on 17 March this year where he was conferred with his role.
