Govt the custodian of the national fabric

Story by ZBC Reporter

THE Government says it is the sole custodian of the Zimbabwean national fabric.

In a statement, the Minister Of Tourism And Hospitality Industry, Honourable Babra Rwodzi said her ministry has the sole responsibility of distributing the national fabric through its Zimbabwe Tourism Authority provincial offices at a gazetted nominal fee of US$4 per metre.

“The Ministry of Tourism and Hospitality Industry wishes to remind all concerned that it is the sole custodian of the Zimbabwe National Fabric and is responsible for distributing the fabric through its Zimbabwe Tourism Authority Provincial offices at a gazetted nominal fee of US$4 per metre.

“The National Fabric was previously sold between US$9 and US$12 before the ministry intervened to get the price gazetted downwards to US$4. The Ministry of Tourism and Hospitality Industry encourages the nation to continue taking pride in our identity, our culture, and our Heritage through our National Fabric,” read a statement by the minister.

Minister Rwodzi castigated falsehoods by some media outlets claiming that the First Lady, Dr Auxillia Mnangagwa is cashing in on the national fabric, saying such claims appear calculated to soil her good image.

“We take exception to false and malicious claims by some media outlets that the First Lady is cashing in on the national fabric. Such claims are not only unfortunate but appear calculated to soil the good image of our hard-working Mother of the nation who is our patron.”
