First Lady, Auxillia Mnangagwa has challenged women not waste time but grab by the throat opportunities that are being availed in the tourism sector as well as taking front seats.
Speaking at a conference in Ghana, running under the theme; “Building the future together”, the First Lady urged women to make use of the conference resolutions and do wonders in tourism.
“The main reason for coming here is to strengthen the issue of tourism by women. We should take this conference seriously.
“This is the first conference of its kind and we should take this to greater heights. As your patron, I want women who are doers, women who bring results. I know with this opportunity we are going to do wonders. This is our opportunity ladies let us utilize it,” she said.
The First Lady launched the Zimbabwe Women in Tourism last year and she has been supporting women in various sectors ever since the husband, President Emmerson Mnangagwa took over power from former President Robert Mugabe.
“We launched the Zimbabwe Women in Tourism last year aimed at promoting women in tourism. Now let us focus on what we are here for and let us network. I would want to see you grow,” added Amai Mnangagwa.
She added, “We are looking at domestic and international tourism. All that has to start with women. I am encouraging you to do more when you go back home and what you are going to learn here should benefit other women back home. Let us grab this opportunity with both hands and make use of it. We want to have a changed Zimbabwe through women who are hard working and it starts with you”.
