The Deputy Minister of Information, Publicity & Broadcasting Services Hon Energy Mutodi disclosed that information put on President Mnangagwa’s twitter account is not legit and must be verified with the presidential spokesperson Mr George Charamba.
Speaking on a phone interview, Mutodi denounced twitter as an official channel to communicate state related issues and he strongly urged the public to desist from engaging information put on the President’s twitter account that is claimed to be untrustworthy.
“We have to authenticate the information with the real official communication, official information coming from the President is through his spokesperson George Charamba, or from himself direct through the state of the nation address, via parliament or any official communication channel as well as the Government gazette.” he said.
Hon Mutodi went on to propound that official government related information is not put on social media platforms as they are a subject to being hacked.

Not only that, The President even embarked on opening a WhatsApp as well as Facebook account to as official channels to engage with the fellow citizens.
Hon Mutodi’s claim has left the nation dumbfounded.
