Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa has reportedly disclosed that he offered U.S. President Donald Trump a piece of land in Victoria Falls to build a state of the art golf course.

According to NewsDay, Mnangagwa revealed his offer to Trump at the Zimbabwe’s Investors Forum  in New York on Monday.

“When I was in Davos I met staffers from the Trump administration. I had hoped to meet President Trump but I had to leave before he arrived. But I told his people that if president Trump wishes, I will offer him ground in Victoria Falls in the national park.

“We have wildlife national park in Victoria Falls, but I had offered president Trump ground to build a state-of-the-art golf course so that as he plays, he can be able to see the big five,” Mnangagwa was quoted as saying.

It appeared the land offer to Trump was part of Mnangagwa’s administration at normalising relations between the two countries.
