A Mhangura miner has started developmental projects in Mhangura as a way of ploughing back to society.
Washington Zindoga, 44, who owns WW Mining Syndicate in Dichwe told H-Metro that he decided to engage in developmental projects in Mhangura as a way of giving back to the society.
He said that already he had begun putting floors to a school block in Ditchwe and Piringani schools.
Zindoga said it was of paramount importance to plough back to society.
“Right now workers are busy flooring two classroom blocks in Ditchwe and Piringani.” said Zindoga.
He added: “Plans are also afoot to construct a bridge in Gudubu as the community is finding it difficult when it comes to travelling. We are working together with the youths in the area.”
Zindoga said he had used over US$4000 on the projects.
He said employed local workers are from the local community so as to improve and uplift their way of life.
“Semunhu anogara munharaunda, tinofanira kuwanikwa tichibatsira mumabasa ebudiriro. Vashandi vazhinji vana nevagari vemuno munharaunda yeMhangura,” he said.
Zindoga also urged people of Mhangura to embrace government’s call of people to be vaccinated against Covid-19 pandemic.
He said as miners, they had a role to play in urging members of the general populace to go and get vaccinated.
“I want to urge all the people in Mhangura and surrounding areas to heed government’s call of being vaccinated to prevent the further spread of the novel coronavirus scourge in our communities,” said Zindoga.
He thanked the government for rolling out mass vaccination programme throughput the nation.
“I want to thank our government for having the health of its citizenry at heart as evidenced by the effort being put in the vaccination programme around the country. We are very grateful indeed.”
So far 177 385 (73 712 second jabs) have been vaccinated in Mashonaland West province.
As of July 25, 1 447 342 people had received their first dose of the vaccine while 680 060 had been fully vaccinated.
The government on Sunday took delivery of one million Sinovac Covid-19 vaccines purchased from China. The total number of vaccination purchased so far is over five million.
