First Lady Esther Lungu has paid glowing tribute to her Zimbabwean counterpart Grace Mugabe for contributing to the growth of the education sector and industry in her country.
Mrs. Lungu said Dr. Mugabe was a selfless person who has invested in the sectors that help ease the lives of people in the country.
She said this after touring the Alfa Omega Dairy Company, Amai Mugabe Junior School and the Grace Mugabe Children’s Village, all owned by Dr. Mugabe in Mazowe area, about 47 kilometres north of Harare city.
Mrs. Lungu said Dr. Mugabe has complemented the Southern African Development Community’s (SADC) theme of industrialisation at the heads of state and government summit which was held in Harare today.
The Zambian First Lady further said her trip to Zimbabwe was an eye opener for her to learn what other First Ladies were doing in their countries.
And Zimbabwean First Lady, Grace Mugabe, said her investment in the education sector was meant mainly to help the vulnerable children acquire decent and quality education.
Dr. Mugabe said the children in the Grace Mugabe Children’s Village will only leave when they are self-reliant.
The Alfa Omega Dairy Farm is home to 2,050 dairy cattle and employs over 300 workers.
The dairy company also produces thousands of litres of milk everyday while another huge amount of it is processed into yoghurt, sour milk and some drinks.-Zanis
