First Lady Amai Auxillia Mnangagwa yesterday held her first ever meeting with Zimbabwean female journalists at state house, aimed at motivating the female media practitioners to develop themselves in and outside their work space.

During her address, Amai Mnangagwa implored all women in media to push the empowerment agenda, maximize their full potential and strive for general personal development by engaging in extra income generating projects.

Amai Mnangagwa said the meeting was non-political, but was one that represented the relationship between a mother and her daughters.

She further presented a platform for the women in media to air their concerns and relay issues affecting their potential to develop at professional and personal level.

Some of the issues raised included sexual harassment, lake of respect for maternity leave and the breastfeeding hour, low salaries and shortage of internship for student journalists among other concerns.

Amai Mnangagwa promised to address the problems.

Telone chief executive officer Chipo Mutasa hailed the First Lady for availing female journalists an open platform for communication.

Mrs Mutasa said women had to take the center stage in restoring the dignity and honour in the office of the First Lady.
