Zimbabwe’s First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa has relinquished her post as the chairperson of the Southern African Regional Caucus of the Pan African Parliament (PAP) to concentrate on her role as the wife of the President.,

She had been chairperson of the organization since 2015.

The First Lady bade farewell to her counterparts during the Sixth Ordinary Session of the Fourth Parliament of the Pan African Parliament in South Africa on Monday and said she was going to concentrate on improving livelihoods of Zimbabweans, the Herald newspaper reported Tuesday.

“Dear colleagues I stand before you with a heavy heart to pronounce my imminent departure from this esteemed legislative body of our motherland, Africa, the PAP,” she said.

The First Lady also gave up her parliamentary seat in February to concentrate on her new role.

Since becoming the First Lady, Mnangagwa has been spearheading various initiatives to help the disadvantaged and has since set up a charity organization to fight cervical cancer.

Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa took over from former President Robert Mugabe in November last year following a military intervention. Enditem
