Zimbabweans gave a rousing welcome to President Mnangagwa after posting his first social media video

Mnangagwa is ready to engage Zimbabweans online unlike his predecessor Mugabe who called social media 'filthy'

Former Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe once hinted at clamping down on the use of internet in the country terming social media as a 'filthy' platform.

But his successor President Emmerson Mnangagwa does not seem to ride on this narrative as he has burst onto the scene with Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Mnangagwa shared his first video of the year on both accounts as he asked Zimbabweans to engage him online and share some of the pertinent issues affecting the country.

"I open this page to communicate better with all the people of Zimbabwe. Leadership is a two-way street. I am here to listen to you and be part of your national dialogue," said Mnangagwa on his Facebook page.

His Twitter account was on the other hand verified on Friday but had close to 41,000 followers four days later.

And the people of Zimbabwe gave him a rousing welcome while appreciating his idea of using social media to keep in touch with them.

Here are some of their responses:
