Prominent Kadoma businessman and President of Muduvuri Rehabilitation and Empowerment Foundation (MREF), Jimayi Muduvuri has donated an isolation centre.

At a ceremony that took place at townhouse and Ngezi Council clinic yesterday, Muduvuri said his factory shell could be utilized by the government as a health centre.

This is meant to combat the spread of COVID 19 which has claimed three lives in the country.

To date, Zimbabwe has recorded eleven confirmed cases.

The program to disinfect the public places and the handover of the isolation centre to the Ministry of Health and Childcare by the city of Kadoma was launched by the Minister of State for Mashonaland West Province, Mary Mliswa.

Muduvuri said it was essential to support the government in the fight against COVID 19.

“Personally as a businessman in Kadoma when l heard President Emmerson Mnangagwa saying we have to prevent Coronavirus l realised that l was late in supporting the fight against this disease and I deem it necessary to give support. On this journey we do not look up to the President alone the responsibility requires all of us because it’s not a Zimbabwe or African problem no, the challenge is affecting the whole world. DA and his team came looking for me to discuss the issue and l said to them the building is going to work as an isolation centre that is what l can offer to show my support towards the fight against COVID 19.”

Mliswa thanked the people of Kadoma for showing unity.

In her remarks, she said, “Kadoma has shown us that they are soldiers in this war against COVID. They have heeded the call by His Excellency our President ED Mnangagwa regarding that we must come together, he said there is no donation too small. We are seeing it happening worldwide that people are turning warehouses and stadiums into hospitals in preparation if COVID 19 hits the area people would get help quickly. We want to thank Mr Muduvuri for the donation it shows that the efforts being made here in Kadoma by the Ministry of Health and Child Care and the cries for help are not in vain, thank you for giving a hand.”

She added that Kadoma is a highway people come from all over and COVID 19 can affect someone coming from South Africa and the isolation place donated by Muduvuri is a hope that it will take care of COVID 19 related issues.

The ceremony was attended by some government officials from the Security Forces,  several stakeholders including Kadoma Councillors led by the Mayor Alderman Action Nyamukondiwa, Sanyati District Development Coordinator Mr Amigo Mhlanga and members of Kadoma Economic Development Chamber led by Mr Langton Mabhanga.
