“Stop ECD, It Is Anti-Girl Child” Says Zimbabwe’s First Lady, Auxillia Mnangagwa

First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa has called on the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education to stop Early Childhood Development (ECD), saying that it is anti-girl child as it contributes to high rates of school dropouts.
She said this while addressing heads of Government departments and other stakeholders before sharing an early Christmas party with children from Binga district at the Catholic-run Sunrise Children’s Home in Binga yesterday.



The first lady was responding to a report that Binga District has 20 892 infants in ECD A and B. Said Mnangagwa:

We don’t want to hear about this ECD. With the ECD A and B, the girl child will spend nine years to get to Grade Seven. This is too much especially for the for the girl child who will have grown big before they get to Form Four and this is contributing to high rates of school drop-outs.
