First Lady Amai Grace Mugabe is in Manicaland Province, Chimanimani area where she is expected to address party supporters at Mutambara Mission before touring Cashel Valley Estates which comprises a vast farm that specialised in growing beans and processes the Cashel baked beans.

12:30 Director of ceremonies Cde Samuel Undenge has invited Manicaland Zanu PF Provincial members to introduce themselves. He has also called on visiting comrades from Mozambique’s Manica Province.

Minister of Media, Information and Broadcasting Services Cde Chris Mushowe says Amai Mugabe’s visit to the province is historic as it marks her commitment in the implementation of ZimAsset.

“We are excited that the First Lady has come to tour a project which is going to add value in as far as the economic blueprint.”

12:35 Min Mushowe says the Cashel Valley Estates which Amai Mugabe is set to tour today is toured by former Vice President Joice Mujuru and promised to revive it. “But when she went back to Harare what did she do? She started plotting against the party leader. So we are glad Amai is here to make that commitment. It is an indication that Amai is Amai for everyone.”

Mai Undenge hails Amai Mugabe’s visit to Manicaland saying it marks the rebirth of Cashel Valley Estates. She says 3000 families are going to benefit from the First Lady’s initiative and selfless efforts. She adds, “Ava ndiAmai, shuwa Amai ndiAmai. Vanhu vese kunaAmai.”

Minister of Youth, Indigestion and Empowerment Cde Patrick Zhuwawo says Amai Mugabe is determined to see the success of ZimAsset and successive implementation of the 10 point plan which was promulgated by President Mugabe in his State of the Nation Address in August. Zhuwawo says the visits are a clear indication that Amai ndiAmai. He adds, Munhu wese kunaAmai because kusina Amai hakuendwi
