THE drive by the ZANU PF Women’s League ’s to promote women empowerment has been taken to rural communities at a large scale with 510 women in Makoni receiving their certificates this Friday after undergoing training to produce a variety of products.
This Friday, the Women’s League inter-district meeting held at Nzvimbe in Makoni saw 510 women graduating after undergoing training to produce a number of products that include detergents, soap, drinks and Vaseline.
“We want to thank our leaders for empowering us. I am looking forward to fending for my family effectively,” said a graduand.
“The empowerment will help my family greatly. I am not going to buy basic products such as soap and other detergents but rather will sell to community members,” added another.
ZANU PF Manicaland Women’s League Chairperson, Cde Happiness Nyakuedzwa spoke on the determination by President Emmerson Mnangagwa to transform rural communities.
“We are happy with the developments here. There was no clinic in this area and government recently constructed one. There was also a piped water scheme that was recently commissioned. We are ready to make our president win, come 2023 elections,” added another.
ZANU PF Women’s League Secretary for Administration, Senator Monica Mutsvangwa also noted the developments taking place in the Nzvimbe area of Makoni including a huge irrigation scheme and the construction of a clinic, saying they should be a rallying point for the local community to resoundingly vote for President Mnangagwa and the party come next year.
“When I was coming here, I saw a road that is being rehabilitated, i saw a state-of-the-art health facility as well as an irrigation being established. We need to thank our President for the developments. We need to solidly support President Mnangagwa as we approach the 2023 elections. The President is constructing clinics, schools and dams among other developments.
“Let’s continue supporting him. We have a president who is dedicated to develop the country. The women’s bank will continue giving women loans to venture into income generating projects,” said Senator Mutsvangwa.
She also added that President Mnangagwa is a solution-oriented leader, who is kin to see the nation develop, hence the need for Zimbabweans to remain united.
“President Mnangagwa is solution oriented. He is different from the opposition parties that include the MDC and CCC that criticise without giving solutions to people’s challenges. He is kin to improve the standard of living for the people. As we approach the 2023 harmonised elections there is need to jealously protect the country’s hard-won independence,” she added.
With Nzvimbe being located in dry parts of Makoni district, Senator Mutsvangwa gave mealie-meal and rice to the elderly and the sick as part of her philanthropic work.
She also took advantage of the inter-district meeting to handover four wheelchairs and several walking aid devices that she mobilised from Green Light International Trust.
