Former Mbizo Constituency Legislator and gold magnate, Vongaishe Mpereri, Sunday donated a football kit to Kwekwe Journalists as a way of giving back to the community, midlandsnews sport can report.
Speaking during the handover ceremony, Kwekwe Press Club, Chairperson, Michael Magoronga, expressed his gratitude to Mpereri for the kind gesture.
“As Kwekwe journalists we are very grateful to Mpereri for the good gesture. When we approached him, just like many politicians, we thought it was going to be one of those empty promises. We are very happy that he stood true to his word”, said Magoronga.
Magoronga said the gesture comes at a time when physical fitness is a priority amid the corona virus pandemic.
Other than sitting in newsrooms, he said the gesture will give the Journalists an opportunity to showcase other talents.
“We cant wait to show what we have. Football also gives us the opportunity to mix and connect with our sources”, added Magoronga.
Mpereri also handed over another football kit to ZIFA Central Region Division 2 outfit Kwekwe Stars.
