Worshippers should continue praying in order to unlock blessings for the country, First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa has said.
She made the exhortation to congregants gathered for the Mega 3 All-Night Prayer — convened by Daughters of Virtue (DOV) — at the National Sports Stadium on Friday.
Daughters of Virtue is an interdenominational programme for women
It capped a marathon prayer session for the First Lady, who earlier in the day took part at the National Day of Prayer at State House.
“Vana vangu, ndinokudai! Rambai muchinamata (My children, I love you! Continue praying),” she told the gathering at the stadium.
The meeting was punctuated by praise and worship music and prayers led by various spiritual leaders, who sought intercession over various issues affecting the country.
The First Lady, together with the crowd, also participated in declarations and decrees.
Visiting Kenyan reverend, Lucy Natasha, took the opportunity to give Amai Mnangagwa a prayer shawl.
“The Bible says you have to give honour where it is due. Therefore, it is an honour to meet the mother of the nation, a humble woman who loves God.
“We love you, we celebrate you, we pray for you and the President,” Rev Natasha said, as the First Lady gestured in acknowledgement.
This is not the first time for the First Lady to attend the DOV prayer session, which is led by Prophetess Memory Matimbire.
In April this year, she joined the prayer group at a mountain in the high-density suburb of Glen Norah B.
Her message was for women to intercede for the nation so that peace, unity, harmony and development would prevail.Last week, despite her packed scheduled, she made time for Friday’s event.
“I had come to worship with you. Can you release me as I have more work I need to do,” she said.
Also in attendance at the vigil was AFM in Zimbabwe Rev Amon Madawo, Evangelist Paul Saungweme, Apostle Batsirayi Java and Pastor Grace Kapswara.
FIRST Lady Auxilia Mnangagwa has called for the declaration of a ‘Liberators Day’ in honour of sons and daughters of Zimbabwe who participated in the liberation struggle which brought and independence in Zimbabwe in 1980.
Addressing female war veterans in Bulawayo Thursday, the First Lady said war veterans are remembered in most counties across the globe.
“We want a day to remember our liberators. Other countries do it to their liberators so that their born frees know their history,” said the First Lady.
Zimbabwe already has a Heroes holiday on which those that fought in the Second Chimurenga are remembered.Auxillia encouraged female war veterans to take up leadership positions in politics and other government institutions such as parastatal boards.
“Women are very few in politics and parastal boards. Let us not cry that we have been prevented into getting into leadership positions. Women can work harder than their male counterparts. Let us get into leadership positions,” she said.
The First Lady promised to uplift the livelihoods of female former freedom fighters whom she said were living under harsh economic conditions.
“There are no jobs . We want you to be self –reliant. You should organise yourself into groups and we will see what we can do. I know you have a lot of things to be done . It will be done,” said Auxillia.
She added that the Ministry of Women Affairs will soon be rolling out various projects for women war veterans.
“The Ministry will assist you with funds to manufacture things like soap and detergents. We also want you to venture into projects like goat and cattle rearing,” she said.
The First Lady also implored the female war veterans to mobilise people to participate in the Zanu PF’s organised ant-sanction march in Harare on 25 October this year.
“You are suffering because of sanctions. Please make sure that you mobilise people to participate in the ant-sanction march in Harare,” she added.
Speaking at the same occasion, the Zanu PF politburo secretary for war veterans Douglas Mahiya claimed Auxillia had made history through the visit.
“What you have done your Excellency has never been done before in the history our country. You have made history in the country by coming to Bulawayo to hear the problems of women war veterans. History books should be written for what you have done,” said Mahiya.
The female war veterans were drawn from Bulawayo, Matebeleland North and South provinces.
The year 2006 marked a turning point in my life. I was a young man, wandering and seeking my purpose, when I met the love of my life. Her smile radiated warmth and her laughter was infectious, in that moment I knew she was the one. I took a leap of faith and asked her out, and as we got to know each other, my love for her grew with each passing day. Her compassion for others, her zest for life, and her unwavering support made me realize she was the missing piece I never knew I needed. And as
