Story by Wellington Makonese

ZIMBABWE is set to host the SADC region for this year’s commemorations of World Children’s Day.

This came out when UNICEF Country Representative Dr Tajudeen Oyewale met Vice President General (Rtd) Dr Constantino Chiwenga in Harare this Thursday.

Emerging from the meeting, Dr Oyewale revealed that deliberations centred on modalities of hosting the World Children’s Day and alignment of legislation involving children.

“This year, Zimbabwe is hosting World Children’s Day and this is big for us,” he said.

Provisions of the country’s legislative framework on children were also brought to the fore.

Dr Oyewale said, “Zimbabwe has made great strides over the years. The constitution has a specific provision for children, recently, there is a Child Rights Act. It is commendable, the education has been exemplary and in different works it’s improving so the country is on track but there is room for better.”

World Children’s Day, also known as Universal Children’s Day, was pronounced when the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of Child in 1959.
