Maputo – Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi says he is confident President Emmerson Mnangagwa would be able to rebuild Zimbabwe's fractured economy.

According to the state-owned Herald newspaper Nyusi said this in Maputo while pledging continued support for development programmes between the two countries. 

Mnangagwa was in Maputo on Wednesday. 

Nyusi congratulated Zimbabwe for its peaceful political transition last year after a military intervention aimed at weeding out criminals who had surrounded long-time leader Robert Mugabe 

"I extend congratulation on your leadership. Zimbabweans have confidence in you and my government is willing to work with you to transform our economies towards a sustainable growth," Nyusi was quoted as saying.

According to SABC, Mnangagwa visited the neigbouring country to continue his consultations with southern African leaders.

The Zimbabwean leader has visited a few other southern African countries that included Angola, South Africa, Namibia and Zambia after taking over from Mugabe in November.
