A Ghanaian delegation led by former Foreign Affairs minister Mr Hackman Owusu-Agyemang is in the country to consolidate the existing socio-economic and political relations between the two countries.

The delegation is reported to be part of the Ghanaian envoys who are visiting friendly nations to appraise African heads of states on bilateral relations and to solicit support for Ghana’s bid to host the secretariat of the African Continental Free Trade Area (CFTA).

“I am leading a delegation from Ghana, we have been dispatched by our president to come here to discuss issues to do with our bilateral relations, you know Ghana and Zimbabwe enjoy excellent cordial relations, so it has been long before sharing notes, but more important I delivered a special message to President Mnangagwa from his counterpart, Nana Akufo-Addo unfortunately we could not open to see the actual message,” said Mr Owusu-Agyemang.

Zimbabwe and Ghana enjoy cordial relations which dates back to the liberation struggle, hence the visit by that country special envoy.

The elaborate effort by Zimbabwe and Ghana to strengthen ties falls well within President Mnangagwa engagement and re-engagement agenda which has been gaining traction on the continent.
