On Monday, President Emmerson Mnangagwa visited the Nyati Gallery near the Snake Park in Harare to take a first look at the statue of First Chimurenga icon Mbuya Nehanda. The memorial statue of the spirit medium will which be erected in the capital, later on, is being made by sculptor David Mutasa.

However, the statue has caused mixed reactions among Zimbabweans with many arguing about the way that she is depicted in the statue.
