ECONOMIC Empowerment Group (EEG) president, Mike Chimombe, has hailed businessman Wicknell Chivayo, for making a difference in the lives of many people.
Chimombe told H-Metro it was very important for Zimbabweans to give back to society through economic empowerment.
He said EEG supports the way Chivayo has been ploughing back to the communities.
“We need to be exemplary as leaders in giving back to society like what Sir Wicknell is doing.
“He is making a difference in many people’s lives.
“He is a responsible citizen and is living up to that.”
He said some people were just good at criticising others.
“It’s high time we become progressive and patriotic Zimbabweans who help each other. I believe we are each brother’s keeper,” said Chimombe.
EEG national secretary-general, Tapiwanaishe Chikondowa, said there was no better empowerment than that which transforms the lives of people.
“That is empowerment. I want to thank Sir Wicknell for advocating, changing and making people’s livelihoods better,” said Chikondowa.
“I hope he continues on this good path in which he is helping many people in our communities.
“I encourage all young black indigenous businessmen to follow on the same path of standing up and helping others,” said Chikondowa.
Sir Wicknell bought a brand new car for the leader of his church, for Chief Hwenje and splashed US$30 000 in cash to Sabhuku Vharazipi and his crew.
