Service / Career
She helped found and launch the National Democratic Party (NDP) thereafter founding ZAPU after the NDP had been banned. She led the Youth Wing of the nationalist movement. As a member of the Youth League, Emmerson Mnangagwa served under her. Through her persuasive broadcast messages aired from Zambia, many youths gathered the courage to join the armed struggle.
In the 1960s Ngwenya served detention at Grey Street Prison, now Bulawayo Prison and Wha Wha detention camp in Gweru before being taken to Gonakudzingwa where she met several nationalists who were also incarcerated in the camp.
Jane Ngwenya credited her career to strong inspiration from founding nationalists such as the late Vice President Joshua Nkomo, Benjamin Burombo, Joseph Msika, and Josiah Chinamano and the late former President Robert Mugabe.
After independence, Ngwenya served as the Deputy Minister of Labour, Manpower and Social Welfare, a key portfolio that oversaw the rehabilitation of returnees and refugees from the armed struggle.
