    One of The Mirror shareholders Virginia-Holmes Takaona chipped in with $30 for the trip to the event which ran from Wednesday to Friday last week.
    Mirror Board chairman, Advocate Rodgers Matsikidze said he will consider paying Lisa's tuition under Matsikidze Foundation International.  Lisa was accompanied by her tutor Comfort Nyandoro Tichamupeyi.
