As Zimbabwe's new President Emmerson Mnangagwa attended the official renaming of the country's main army barracks in the capital, Harare, today - he spotted a spelling error. The Twitter account which monitors Zimbabwe's media tweeted a video of the moment:

Embarrassing spelling error on the new plaque at the renamed Tongogara Barracks.
The state-run Herald paper, which has been live blogging the event, says all barracks nationwide are being named after national heroes.
Harare's King George VI Barracks will change to Josiah Tongogara, the guerrilla commander who led forces during the liberation struggle and died in a car crash just before independence in 1980.
The army was instrumental in the momentous events last month that led Robert Mugabe, who had ruled the country since 1980, to resign as president.
