This sojourn preceded a Zimbabwe Tourism Authority-guided tour of the World’s View.

The Masisis were treated to a fly past the magnificent Mutarazi Falls and the mystique of Mt Nyangani.

Nyangani is the highest mountain in Zimbabwe at an imposing 2,592 metres (8,504 ft).

Masisi was in Zimbabwe to officially open the just-concluded Zimbabwe National Agricultural Show.

He visited the Botswana Investment and Trade Centre (BITC).

“Through this participation Botswana can establish market access for local products as well as identify,” Masisi said.

A highlight of his visit was a meeting with host president, Emmerson Mnangagwa.

“We exchanged views and discussed issues of mutual interest,” Masisi stated.
