Will Mnangagwa Remove Mugabe's 'Dirty Name' From Airport?

Once hailed as a hero of the country's liberation struggle, former president Robert Mugabe is now being referred to as a "last-minute traitor" by his former militant support base, the war veterans. The former independence war fighters say tourists don't want to be greeted with a name associated with dictatorship.
