In light of Egypt’s pivotal role in the Black Continent and its historical duty to stand by African brothers، two military planes carrying Egyptian aid arrived in Zimbabwe Wednesday.

The aid was sent in the aftermath of the hurricane that recently hit Mozambique، Malawi and Zimbabwe.

Egyptian Ambassador Mohamed Fahmy was at the airport to receive the planes، accompanied by the deputy minister of local government in Zimbabwe، who spoke in appreciation for the Egyptian aid.

The Egyptian ambassador stressed Cairo's support to the government and people of Zimbabwe and the importance of joint African action to face challenges.
