At a time when Zimbabwe is facing a myriad of economic and social problems president Emmerson Mnangagwa has brazenly pledged US$1 million to the Global Fund.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa made the announcement during his address at the 6th Replenishment Conference organised by the Global Fund Forum in Lyon, France which seeks to raise US$14 billion to fight HIV & TB.

The country is currently experiencing its worst economic crisis in a decade, seen in triple-digit inflation, cash shortages, medicines and fuel that have evoked the dark days of the 2008 hyperinflation.

Following the announcement, Zimbabweans took to social media to vent out their frustrations towards the 77-year-old leader who took over after the late Robert Mugabe was deposed in a coup in November 2017.

Below are some of the reactions.
