Villagers receive 1 000 goats

BULAWAYO - The Killer Zivhu Foundation has donated 1 000 goats to Lupinyu villagers under chief Mvuthu in an effort to eradicate poverty in the area.

The ceremony was attended by scores of villagers who welcomed the donation as critical in fighting poverty. Village head, Gama Siwela, said people in the area were poor, with no means to eke out a living.

“Their children left the village and most of them are in jail for committing various offences and getting such handouts means a lot to them as they will be able to sustain themselves and their grandchildren,” he said.

The founder of the foundation, Killer Zivhu, also pledged to rebuild 80-year-old Anna Ngwenya’s homestead at a cost of $15 000 after it was razed by fire two years ago.

She also received five goats.

He also outlined future plans for the foundation.

“We are going to put 1 000 goats in Hwange District for these people as a pioneer project because we are saying, let us give our people sustainable projects. I am not doing this project only here in Hwange but we are going to have this project in Chivi, Chipinge, Plumtree (and) as far as Binga,” he said.
