Sekuru Banda Donates Food Hampers To Elderly People In Dema
As part of his ongoing nationwide initiative to assist vulnerable members of society, millionaire traditional healer Sekuru Banda today donated food hampers worthy thousands of dollars to over 100 elderly people in Dema under Chief Rubatika.
A few weeks ago, Sekuru Banda donated foodstuffs to the elderly in Mbare where he committed to take the initiative on a national scale.
Speaking during the event, Sekuru Banda thanked the government for its intervention measures put in place to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

He also had kind words for the First Lady Amai Auxillia Mnangagwa who is also involved in assisting the elderly.
“I want to applaud government for the measures it has put in place to curb the spread of COVID-19, it is very important because it reduces the spread of this pandemic which has caused so much suffering in the west where thousands of people are dying every day.

“I also want to thank the First lady for remembering the elderly in our society,” said Sekuru Banda.
He further called on privileged citizens and corporates to chip in and assist the vulnerable in society especially the elderly and orphans.
“I appeal to other privileged members of society and companies to help the needy with the little they have,” added Sekuru Banda.
In response, Chief Rubatika thanked Sekuru Banda for his timely gesture.
President Emmerson Mnangagwa has since extended the lockdown which was supposed to end today by a further 14 days saying the country had not yet met conditions set by the World Health Organisation (WHO) for countries to end restrictions.
Sekuru Banda called on citizens to comply with the extended lockdown.
He said decisions by government are informed by a deep appreciation of the situation on the ground and should be supported.
