Inferiority complex? – 76 year old Mnangagwa calls 66 year old Putin “Senior Brother” – VIDEO

Zimbabwean president Emmerson Mnangagwa has asked for guidance from his Russian counterpart to help surmount his country’s mounting economic challenges.

Referring to Putin as a senior brother, Mnangagwa said he particularly looked up to the Russian leader for economic direction.

“Your Excellency, I would wish that we now attend to deepening economic cooperation between our countries, and our country is developing – it is a third-world country – so that you, as a senior brother, can hold my hand as I try to develop Zimbabwe,” he said.
