First Lady Amai Grace Mugabe's Book sells for U.S.$50k
A book chronicling the life of First Lady Amai Grace Mugabe in pictures was sold for $50 000
The bids for the book started at $5 000 during the First Lady's 50th birthday celebrations gala and fund-raising dinner held at the First Family's home in Borrowdale, Harare, on Saturday evening and spilled into the early hours of yesterday.
The book is titled "Amai Dr Grace Mugabe at 50" and has pictures depicting the various stages of the First Lady's life.
Proceeds from the fund-raising dinner would be distributed to several charity organisations this week to which Amai Mugabe is patron. It was an interesting show as corporates and individuals competed to bid for the first copy.
But no one could surpass the bar set by Prophet Magaya at $50 000 and he eventually received the first copy of the book which was signed by both President Mugabe and Amai Mugabe, amid deafening cheers from the guests. Brainworks Capital also ran a good show by taking the book at $20 000 after becoming the second highest bidders.
Speaking to The Herald after receiving his copy of the book, Prophet Magaya said the charity work that Amai Mugabe was doing deserved support from everyone.
Prophet Magaya said he was happy to meet the First Family and he would continue to support Amai Mugabe's philanthropic work.
During his crusade in Botswana recently, Prophet Magaya indicated that it was his wish to meet President Mugabe.
