Preserve family unit: Amai Mnangagwa

By ZBC Reporter
ZIMBABWEANS have been challenged to take care of their elderly relatives to preserve the family unit and Zimbabwean culture.
This was said by the First Lady Amai Auxillia Mnangagwa when she visited senior citizens in Norton.
In a display of love and unity, the first lady Amai Mnangagwa joined the Mashonaland west community, political leaders and various church denominations in Norton where they cleaned several households in Ngoni and Katanga suburbs.
Amai Mnangagwa and her team took time to do laundry, cook and share meals with the elderly, a move welcomed by Chief Chivero and some senior citizens.
From Katanga the first lady then proceeded to Dudley hall primary school where she addressed multitudes of people stressing the importance of strengthening unity in the family.
“My aim is to strengthen the family unity, we should not neglect our elders, lets strive to ensure that they are comfortable at all times,” said Amai Mnangagwa.
Pregnant women who received baby hampers as well as the elderly who got blankets and groceries through the first lady’s Angel of Hope Foundation welcomed her generosity.
“We are happy to be remembered, and we would like to thank the first lady for remembering us” said one the recipients.
Norton legislator, Honourable Themba Mliswa thanked the first lady for her non-partisan approach in uplifting the lives of vulnerable members of the community.
“You have done a very good thing by coming to Notorn which is an independent seat you are not looking at politics but the upliftment of the people,” said Mliswa.
Meanwhile, the first lady’s philanthropic work has received a major boost after she received various gifts which include 10 heifers, 50 roadrunners and pigs for poultry projects as well as land to build a clinic in Norton and a school in Chegutu.
