GOSPEL musician Bruce Machingura has joined the fight against cholera by engaging churches to raise awareness about the disease.
Machingura has since launched the Save Life Movement which will be visiting a number of churches around the country as he believes the fight against cholera is not yet over.
He kicked off the campaign last Sunday at AFM Pillar of Fire in Chitungwiza East Province where he donated sanitisers to hundreds of congregants as well engaging them.
Machingura, who is currently basking in the glory of his songs like Holy Holy and Munana, took the opportunity to perform his new single titled Ngwarirai Cholera.
The musician, a former member of the popular Born Free Crew, told H-Metro on the sidelines of his performance that the initiative will reach out to millions of Zimbabweans.
“As a gospel musician, I just decided to launch this initiative through the Save Life Movement which I am the chief executive while Retired Major Andrew Mauruka is the chairperson.
“We have started here at Pillar of Fire but will be reaching out to a number of churches as I feel that the fight against cholera is not yet over,” said Machingura.
He believes musicians also play a role in nation building as well educating and informing the public.
“This single Ngwarirai Cholera will go a long way in educating people about the disease. As a musician, I think that we also play a role.
“So during the campaigns, I will be performing the song and giving people CDs to play the song at their homes.
“I have realized that people are assuming that the fight is over, this is not the case. Even if we are to say we have won the fight, people should be always reminded on how to avoid it,” he said.
