Preseident Robert Mugabe returned home yesterday from Equatorial Guinea, where he was attending the 4th Africa-Arab summit.
Mugabe was accompanied by First Lady Dr Grace Mugabe and was received at the Harare International Airport by Vice Presidents Emmerson Mnangagwa and Phelekezela Mphoko, Cabinet Ministers, senior Government officials and service chiefs. The summit was jointly organised by the African Union Commission and the League of Arab States with the aim of promoting development by strengthening trade and investment among Gulf and African states.
At the third Arab Africa summit held in Kuwait in 2013, Kuwait availed a $3 billion facility for developmental initiatives for African states. Zimbabwe has benefited from the Kuwait funding through a $35 million citrus farming project to be established in Matabeleland South as well as construction of two new hospitals through the Ministry of Health and Child Care.
