GUCCI GRACE :WHY ZIMBAS ARE STRUGGLING | First Lady, Grace Mugabe says Zimbabweans are poor because of economic sanctions.
“I want to see the children here prospering in every way and of course even for the country‘s economy to improve,” she said. “But it can only improve when these debilitating sanctions are removed…
“We all need to survive; we are a sovereign country and (Western countries) should give us the opportunity to develop our country without hindrance. And with the way things are it very difficult situation. She was speaking with The Sunday Mail at the 29th Danhiko Annual Paralympic Games in Harare yesterday.
“For the past 20 years I have been Patron of Danhiko, I have enjoyed nothing more than dancing with these children. These children require us to treat and recognise them as part of the community and the society.
“That is the reason why I make sure that every year, without fail, we have the games just to make them happy and have that sense of belonging.
They need to have that feeling that they too are recognised as part of the society . . . We thank the Almighty for every day that we have at Danhiko.”
