Chinese Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Mr Lin Lin has pledged China's continued support to Zimbabwean projects that help uplift the lives of the ordinary people and underprivileged groups in the country.

He was speaking at the handover over ceremony of the newly built Grace Mugabe Junior School in Mazowe this Thursday.

The school, which occupies 7 720 square metres, comprises of 27 general classrooms of 30 students each, one library, a computer laboratory, a music room and various offices and auxiliary facilities.

Ambassador Lin said China is ready to partner Zimbabwe in other developmental projects.

He said China has helped build two other schools in the country and several projects such as the national defence college, a hotel in Mutare, among other projects.

Mashonaland Central Province Governor and Resident Minister, Advocate Martin Dinha was full of praises for the first family for choosing to invest in his province.

He said the province still needs an agro-processing business project besides the dairy factory that has been established by the first family.

He took a swipe at some media detractors who are criticising him for giving away the land to the first family.

The Minister of Local Government, Rural and Urban Development, Dr Ignatius Chombo spoke of how Amai Mugabe came up with idea of the project and roped in his ministry to take part.

Hundreds attended the official hand over ceremony in Mazowe.
