The Standard reports that although there is no law preventing Auxilia Mnangagwa from retaining her Chirumanzu seat, she is anxious to focus on her philanthropic work. ‘She now becomes the mother of the nation.

The First Lady took over the constituency when her husband was appointed Deputy President in 2015.
