Acie Lumumba was left angry after his flight from South Africa was cancelled because of few passengers.
He raged :”What a mess. I am deeply grieved for Zimbabwe. I am at OR Tambo ready to board Air Zim flight UM452 to Harare and I have been informed the flight has been cancelled because there are not enough passengers.
The 3 of us passengers (one who is an elderly man returning from a back operation) have been asked to negotiate with other airlines for our tickets home. This is the definition of State failure. The President’s son in-law Simba Sam Chikore is Chief Operations Officer. Not 1 Air Zim on sight to assist. We are being assisted by SA Airport Authorities. I got through to someone from AIR Zim and all they had to say to me is Sorry.
