Mozambiques jet-setter president

Filipe Nyusi, the president of Mozambique, is reported to have spent £7million of public cash on a plane to fly around the world. The country has a GDP per person of just $1,200 (£900) – making it more impoverished than nearly any other nation in the world. The lavish purchase comes despite the fact his country is so poor it is reliant on aid money. But it recently bought a 14-seater Bombardier Challenger 850 jet for $9.2million (£7million). Nyusi used the aircraft to travel to the inauguration of neighboring Zimbabwe’s new president.
