Actress Connie Ferguson is in Zimbabwe where she will be the guest of honour at the Women in Business Conference that will be held today.
She landed in Harare yesterday and a welcome dinner was hosted for her at Zimbabwe’s 5 star hotel Miekles.
During her speech Connie revealed that this was her first time being in Zimbabwe.
However, she said this will not be the last visit as she had already started engaging with film makers in that country.
Connie said her hopes are that Zimbabwe will be part of the change that her production company is trying to bridge as it brings African countries together in film.
Information minister Monica Mutsvangwa was also present at the welcome dinner yesterday.
Below is more of what she said in her speech. Please watch the video.
