FIRST Lady Cde Grace Mugabe heads to Mashonaland Central province today where she is expected to meet the people and assess the effects of El-Nino induced drought affecting the country. Last year, the Zanu-PF secretary for Women’s Affairs moved around the country handing over irrigation equipment in a move aimed at resuscitating irrigation schemes. The First Lady also donated foodstuffs and clothes.
Zanu-PF Mashonaland Central provincial chairperson Cde Dickson Mafios said Cde Mugabe would meet supporters at Kanyemba Secondary School in Chiweshe.
“It’s a Zanu-PF rally in Mazowe South to be addressed by Amai (Mugabe),” she said.
“She wants to meet the people and assess the effects of drought and see how as a mother of the nation she can assist.
“This is her first visit of the year to the province and we are excited to host her.
“She’ll come with innovative projects which will help women and the youths to alleviate the challenges they are encountering at the moment.
“We’ve mobilised our people and it is good that the rally is coming after her wise speech at the Zanu-PF headquarters this week where she centred on unity.
“As she said, there is no need to fight while people are suffering. It is time to work hard and fulfil the election promises we made as a party in 2013.”
