Zimbabweans celebrate Mother’s Day

Zimbabweans today celebrated Mother’s Day in various ways to honour these special people who give life.

Selfless, hardworking, caring, loving and devoted.

Those are some of the words used to describe mothers who were under the spotlight as families around the world celebrated mother’s Day.

The mothers themselves cherished this important societal role of giving life, while their spouses and children said they treasure these women in their life.

A health worker, mother of 6 and grandmother, Mrs Sharma Mashave urged mothers above all things to take care of their health and spoil them on this special day.

Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908 in the United States when Anna Jarvis, a peace activist held a memorial for her late mother at St Andrews Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia.

St Andrews Methodist Church now holds the International Mother’s Day shrine.
