Dr Cephas Msipa, the former Midlands Governor, kindly visited the orphanage to join in a day of recognition to celebrate the Centre's work for the children in its care.
invited press reporters to document the day's events in the hope that the citizens of Gweru will want to play a role in helping look after the orphans.
The day went exceptionally well; beginning with a play performed by the orphans, showing the reality of life for children on the streets and how much better their lives are now through living at the orphanage.
This was followed by more entertainment; from poems to dance routines.

DURING a Parliamentary question and answer session in 1998, Tirivanhu Mudariki asked Cephas Msipa, then Minister of Indigenisation, when he would table a black empowerment bill in Parliament. Msipa
responded by promising to do so "shortly". But Mudariki - at the time the Harare East Member of Parliament
(MP) - left Parliament
in 2000 with no such law having been tabled. Today, Mudariki holds a minority interest in River Ranch Limited, a mining company whose shareholding is likely to be affected by the Indigenous and Empowerment Bill that was passed by Parliament last week, nine years after he called for it.

13 February 2014
FORMER Midlands Governor, Dr Cephas Msipa, says cronyism, incompetence and greed are to blame for the rot that has permeated most State enterprises and parastatals.
Dr Msipa, who served on 18 boards in his prime when he briefly left Government between 1985 and 1995, said today's board members and executives were driven by the love of money in their operations.
said: "My heart bleeds when I hear about the corruption that is taking place in most boards of parastatals.
said those appointed to sit on any board, especially in parastatals, should view the appointment as a national duty.
would approach his
assignment to any board as a challenge knowing fully well that he
was expected to produce results.
He said some of the boards he sat on include the Agricultural Marketing Board (AMA) that oversaw the operations of the Cold Storage Commission, Dairiboard and the Cotton Marketing Board.
He also sat on the Triangle Sugar Estates board, Bikita Minerals, Cairns Foods and many others.
said AMA had the responsibility of buying grain in times of drought, not government.

who are you fooling.

can only say the current events have taken you by surprise and total disbelief.
