President Robert Mugabe praised Environment, Water and Climate Minister Oppah Muchinguri and Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare Minister Prisca Mupfumira for their hard work and reaction to Tropical Cyclone Dineo. Muchinhuri was praised for warning people about the dangers of floods while Mupfumira was praised for mobilising resources.
Addressing the 105th Ordinary Session of the Zanu-PF Central Committee in Harare on Friday, Mugabe said:
Our Minister of Environment and her group were wonderful performers, alerting people and working together with Ministry of Labour for assistance
They distinguished themselves very much. We were quick as Government in moving to places that were affected in order to assuage the challenges that were faced by families that are still displaced from unfortunate events where a number of people died.
