via Give us cash, Bob tells Diasporans – New Zimbabwe 30/03/2015
PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe has urged Zimbabweans who are in the diaspora to emulate Ethiopians who have changed the face of Ethiopia with their remittances back home.
According to the ZBC Mugabe said this during his meeting with the Zimbabwean community led by their patron, Ambassador Albert Chimbindi and the President of the AmaZimbabwe Association, Rodney Kiwa in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
Mugabe said Zimbabweans should be law abiding in their host countries and should not deny their children a chance to learn their mother tongue.
Reports last week said Zimbabweans living in Ethiopia were asked to contribute $50 each towards the hosting of Mugabe at a local hotel in Addis Ababa.
Kiwa was quoted saying about 80 people were expected to meet Mugabe and as such each member of the community was expected to contribute towards the event.
