A SOUTH Africa-based pastor Chenjerai Kangausaru has initiated philanthropic efforts in his rural home, Hurungwe East, with the idea of transforming the community.
The preacher, who goes to Family of God Church, has rolled out plans for the construction of schools in the area, having already completed a clinic set to be commissioned soon.
He is also paying school fees for a number of disadvantaged children from Hurungwe and has donated goods worth thousands of dollars to the victims of Cyclone Idai in eastern and southern parts of the country.
Kangausaru, who is also into music promotion, believes he has been called by God to make an impact in different sectors of society.
He runs business with interests in education, sport, transport and agriculture in South Africa and dreams to transform Hurungwe.
“I believe in education. Education is key in life and it should be taken seriously by all the stakeholders and make sure that there are enough institutions for children to learn and develop their skills.
“I have plans of building primary and secondary schools as well as tertiary colleges in Hurungwe.
“We have already built the Bijester Clinic in the area, it will be commissioned soon,” he said.
He said he is inspired by the biblical David in his work as he mixes religion and politics.
“As you know, David was a worship leader and a politician and religion, just like politics is a calling.
“God wants the righteous to lead. When the wicked are in charge, the people moan but when the righteous are in charge, the people rejoice.
And in as far as music promotions are concerned, he has bias towards gospel.
“I usually promote gospel music since it is part of my efforts to preach the gospel to all corners of the world,” he said.
