Harvard University appears to have withdrawn the honour it had bestowed on First Lady, Auxillia Mnangagwa following pressure.

In a statement the institution said they had not appointed the first Lady as their health ambassador but it was part of an ‘informal conversation’ although there is a formal letter in which they bestowed her with the position.

Harvard made a u-turn after it came under pressure from rights groups that protested about human rights violations, torture and abductions in Zimbabwe.
