cde muchinguri oppah zanu pf sec for womens affairs.jpgThe Zanu PF Women’s League has embarked on a health education campaign across the country after the realisation that some women fail to get proper medical care and advice due to lack of knowledge.

Secretary for Women’s Affairs, Cde Oppah Muchinguri, said the organ’s national executive has come up with a programme that will focus on educating women on health issues.

She said some women are seeking medical assistance from the wrong quarters due to ignorance – a situation which she said is worrisome.

“We are concerned that some women, when they reach menopause, they seek help in the wrong places because of lack of knowledge.

“We want to help women with the requisite knowledge because it does not benefit us to have ignorant members. Our members need to be healthy for them to fully support the party,” she added.

Cde Muchinguri highlighted that the health campaigns will be conducted by properly trained people so that correct information will be imparted to the women.

Meanwhile, Secretary for Information and Publicity in the Women’s League, Cde Monica Mutsvangwa, says they are working on various empowerment projects expected to benefit many women this year.  

She said, “Zanu PF is well-known for having developmental programmes for all Zimbabweans and women are no exception. This year we have many projects targeted at improving women’s livelihoods.”

The Women’s League is also targeting to register 100 000 women in each province through the Green Card for an anticipated target of one million registered women.
