Zimbabwe's President Emmerson Mnangagwa hinted that he could exhume the remains of Cecil John Rhodes in exchange for African ancestral remains in Europe.
Speaking to traditional chiefs in Harare on Monday, Mnangagwa said: "We still have Rhodes' remains in Matobo (Hills). What do you think about it? If you go to the shrine, you don't know whether you are talking to Rhodes or our ancestors. His remains must be returned to where he hailed from and we can also have our ancestral remains, which are being kept in Europe."
Lately, his government has been at loggerheads with chiefs from the southern and south-eastern parts of the country, who accuse his government of corruption and failure to reign in the economy.
