via Zanu-PF congratulates First Lady | The Herald July 23, 2015
THE ruling zanu-pf party has sent congratulations and best wishes to the First Lady Dr Grace Mugabe who turns 50 today. The party’s spokesperson Cde Simon Khaya Moyo was effusive in his praise of the philanthropist, businesswoman and politician and said the ruling party felt inspired by her works.
“A birthday is a very special occasion to any person and today is the First Lady’s special day and all patriotic Zimbabweans join her in celebrating it,” said Cde Khaya-Moyo. “She has led by example particularly in the area of caring for the disadvantaged including orphans and those with disabilities. She has shown compassion to vulnerable people including the aged by distributing food and clothes across the country.
“As zanu-pf we feel inspired by her leadership of the Women’s League and the various projects she is spearheading. We wish her an exciting celebration and many more happy returns.”
Dr Mugabe was born in South Africa, where her father worked.
She married President Mugabe in 1996 and the couple has three children together. Last year, Dr Mugabe was chosen to lead zanu-pf Secretary for Women’s Affairs, the same year she earned a Doctor of Philosophy degree.
