Sulu, Mhere help Chivi widow

CHIVI - Dendera star Suluman Chimbetu and rising gospel artiste Mathias Mhere have donated building material worth thousands of dollars to a Chivi widow Elizabeth Sithole who lives in a pole and dagga hut with seven orphans.

The two popular musicians helped the Chivi Rural District Council to mobilise for the building material that will be used to construct a three bedroomed house and a big round hut in Madyangove Village in Chivi North.

The donated building material included doors, door frames, windows, cement, bricks, roofing materials and fencing wire.

Sulu told villagers who gathered to witness the handover of the building material last week that assisting disadvantaged people in Chivi North was their way of giving back to the community.

“In addition to entertaining people, we have a moral duty to assist members of our societies who are from the disadvantaged backgrounds. So as musician with my brother Mathias we teamed up with your local leaders in the council to help our mother here who did not have decent shelter,” Sulu said.

Sulu and Mhere have also pledged to avail school fees to the seven orphans being looked after by the widowed Sithole.

Chivi Rural District Chairman, Killer Zivhu said his council had roped in local musicians to help raise resources needed to build decent houses for the underprivileged people in his district.

“We have some people who are struggling to have proper shelter who live under squalid conditions. Our council has teamed up with local musicians to mobilise resources to help them get decent accommodation.”

Zivhu added that his council had lined up a fund-raising concert to be held at Mucheke Stadium in Masvingo on June 28 that will feature Tswana music sensation, Slizzer, Jah Prayzah and several other local musicians.
