The visiting Ghanaian business delegation has paid tribute to the late National Heroine, Amai Sally Francesca Mugabe for the role she played in Zimbabweâ€™s liberation struggle and for cementing relations between Ghana and Zimbabwe.
The Ghanaian business delegation, which is in the country to explore investment opportunities in several sectors, paid a visit to the National Heroes Acre in Harare where liberation heroes including the late First Lady, Amai Sally Mugabe are buried.
Head of the Ghanaian business delegation, Mrs Nancy Sam said the visit to the shrine allowed the group to reflect on the immense sacrifice by the late Amai Mugabe, who took up the struggle for freedom from colonialism in a foreign country.
â€œHer presence in this place is overwhelming. She encourages us especially women to do better. We knew she participated in the liberation struggle but we didnâ€™t know to what extent,â€ Mrs Sam.
Ghanaian Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Mr James Naadjie said the interment of Amai Sally Mugabe at a great Zimbabwean shrine was a befitting tribute to a daughter of Ghana, who played a key role in uniting the two nations.
â€œWe hope that in future and as our economy improves, we will have people visiting Zimbabwe to pay their last respects to Amai Mugabe and learn from her selflessness.Â
Tourism and Hospitality Industry Minister, Engineer Walter Mzembi described the heroes acre as an ultimate tourism product, which celebrates the countryâ€™s history.
83 heroes and 6 heroines are buried at the national shrine, with Amai Sally Mugabe being the first woman to be interred at the shrine in 1992.
