First Lady Grace Mugabe has declared that Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) are not welcome in Zimbabwe due to the bumper harvest which is expected this year. Grace also accused some NGOs of interfering in local politics and said that the NGOs should be vetted.
Speaking at the first “Meet the Youth” rally in Marondera on Friday, the First Lady said:
We are having a bumper harvest this year so there is no need for NGOs anymore. We don’t need them anymore because they always want to come here and disturb our politics,
The First Lady’s remarks came only a day after Sweden increased its support to the Zimbabwe Resilience Building Fund by $8 million.
