Modi Keeps His Promise Donates Full Ministerial Salary
Deputy Minister of Industry and Commerce, Raj Modi who promised he would donate his monthly salary during his tenure in Government to under-privileged people in Bulawayo, has kept the promise so far.
In keeping with his promise, Modi has donated his government salary for October 2018 to meet the medical costs of a patient at Mater Dei Hospital in Bulawayo.
The patient, Brenda Zulu, suffered a stroke last week Friday.
“Today I donated my government salary to meet Brenda Zulu’s medical costs at Mater Dei Hospital. She had a stroke last week Friday. Get well soon Brenda,” Raj Modi said on Sunday.
Modi is the only Zanu-PF candidate who won a parliamentary seat in Bulawayo’s 12 constituencies. He was elected MP for Bulawayo South during the July 2018 harmonised elections.
Modi said last month that these monthly donations are the least he will do for the people of Bulawayo, whom he credits for his success.
Brenda Zulu’s medical costs at Mater Dei Hospital have been covered by Byo South MP Raj Modi (left) October salary. He is a deputy minister of Industry and Commerce.
Said Modi: “I am a successful businessman because of the people of Bulawayo. I am a Member of Parliament because of the people of Bulawayo and I was appointed Deputy Minister of Industry and Commerce because I am a Member of Parliament, so I am a Minister because of the people of Bulawayo.
“While I can thank them all through words, I am compelled to show my gratitude by helping the under-privileged in our city. Therefore, I am making an undertaking to donate my entire salary every month to the needy. I will not touch or use a cent from that money. It will go to the poor, especially the children whom I love so much. I will also give to women, orphans, the elderly and people living with disabilities.”
The philanthropist said his humble monthly donation is an effort to contribute towards the national cause.
“However, I must hastily add that I am not going to help the people of Bulawayo South only but the people of Bulawayo, the city. I don’t care where you are from; if I have the opportunity to assist you, I will assist you. I know what it feels like to be poor. I have the emotional intelligence and the empathy that enables me to walk in the shoes of the underprivileged,” Modi said.
