President Emmerson Mnangagwa has reportedly handpicked former MDC legislator for Mabvuku-Tafara, James Maridadi as an ambassador-designate.

Maridadi, who once worked at the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Authority’s Radio 3 (Power FM) as a disc jockey, fell out of favour with MDC leader Nelson Chamisa soon after taking over the party reins after the death of Morgan Tsvangirai in 2018.
