Manicaland Province says it is ready to welcome the First Lady Amai Grace Mugabe when she takes her “Meet the People Tour” to Sakubva Stadium in Mutare today. She has been to Mashonaland West, Midlands, Harare and Masvingo provinces meeting party members following her nomination to assume leadership of the Women’s League at the Zanu-PF National People’s Congress scheduled for December.
Manicaland provincial secretary for information and publicity Cde Supa Mandiwanzira yesterday said the stage was set for Amai Mugabe’s rally.
He urged people to converge at Sakubva in their thousands to hear wise words from the trailblazing First Lady.
“As a province, we are ready to receive the First Lady and we expect everyone to be at the stadium by 8am,” Cde Mandiwanzira said.
“We have buses carrying people in some party districts and we urge others with their transport to assist others as people are coming from all parts of Manicaland.”
Cde Mandiwanzira said the event, though being hosted by the Women’s League, was open to all party members and even outsiders.
“We must all rally behind the First Lady because she is a mother to all of us,” he said.
“Let us come and hear her wise words of unity, while women will benefit from packets of seed.”
During her provincial tours, Amai Mugabe has packaged her message on unity, development and enterprise.
The major highlight of her rallies was on Wednesday when she brought together Zanu-PF Harare provincial chairman Cde Amos Midzi and provincial youth leader Cde Godwin Gomwe whose differences were having a toll on the party.
She also publicly forgave Harare Province political commissar Cde Shadreck Mashayamombe who was quoted as saying she had no political home in Harare.
Amai Mugabe warned that members who continued associating themselves with factionalism risked being left behind by a united grassroots.
