Acting President Chiwenga to lead wetlands commemorations
Masvingo (New Ziana) – Acting President Constantino Chiwenga will lead commemorations of World Wetlands Day in Masvingo on Wednesday, an official has said.
Masvingo provincial information officer, Rodgers Irimayi said the commemorations will be held at Njovo Wetland, Zezai Village, Ward 18 in Masvingo district.
