First lady Auxillia Mnangagwa flew to New York on Monday to attend a United Nations gender summit.
The 63rd session of the Commission on the Status of Women will take place at the United Nations Headquarters in New York from March 11 to 22. Although the conference does not start until Monday next week, ZimLive reports Mnangagwa left on March 4. She and her small delegation will spend close to three weeks in the United States.
When contacted the United States embassy in Harare declined to comment on Mnangagwa’s trip. The first lady, whose husband is subject of targeted United States travel restrictions, will be restricted to a 25-mile radius of the United Nations headquarters during the visit.
