VP Mujuru Wins Women’s Award
Vice-President Mujuru has won the prestigious Distinguished African Amazon Award (2012).
The award is in recognition of her role in continental leadership and protecting vulnerable women and children.
A letter informing VP Mujuru reads in part-
“The organisers considered your dynamic role in the leadership of Zimbabwe and the African region as a whole which has served as an inspiration to girls and women all over Africa and the rest of the world, as well as your contribution in protecting vulnerable women, and have selected you as the recipient of the prestigious Distinguished African Amazon Award 2012,”
Noted recipients of this award include Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Gambian Vice-President Dr Isatou Njie-Saidy who won the award in 2010 and 2011 respectively.
VP Mujuru has lately been attracting positive attention in world media and has been featuring on a number of lists naming illustrious women.
She will receive the accolade at the International Conference on African Women Development (ICAWD) scheduled for the United Arab Emirates next month.
To VP Mujuru we say congratulations.
