Indian Varsity Confers Mnangagwa’s Wife With Honorary Doctorate

Just like her predecessor and late former Zimbabwe dictator’s widow, Grace Mugabe, First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa now deserves to be called ‘Dr Amai’.

This comes after President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s wife was yesterday conferred with an honorary doctorate at GD Goenka University in Gurugram Haryana, India. The First Lady who was clad in colourful academic regalia, was awarded a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) (Honoris Causa) degree in recognition of her philanthropic works in the landlocked southern African nation.

In her acceptance speech, the First Lady, who dedicated the degree, described the honorary doctorate as ‘the highest academic honour’.

“Today is a very special day for me as I am receiving the highest academic honour bestowed unto me, that of an honorary doctorate in Philosophy by the esteemed GD Goenka University,” said Amai Mnangagwa.

She also continued, saying:

“This accolade is special to me because it has been conferred unto me in light of the work I passionately carry out in my home country, Zimbabwe. To be awarded such a prestigious endorsement from a world class institution such as GD Goenka is something that I do not take lightly but rather hold it close to my heart endearingly. The doctorate awarded to me is a recognition, a realization and indeed a fulfillment of what I had always dreamt of….”

Dr Amai’s Angel of Hope has made significant inroads, reaching out to various marginalised communities across Zimbabwe.

Her charitable organisation advocates for the inclusion and intergration of the marginalised communities into the mainstream of society.
