    CHIVHU – It was a moment of a lifetime when Zimbabwe's legendary musician Oliver Mtukudzi performed at the launch of the Alfred Dondo Foundation, a scholarship scheme that will cater for 35 disadvantaged children from Chikomba District who lost both parents.
    Also performing at the function held at the Dondo Homestead in Hokonya under Chief Musarurwa two weeks ago was popular traditional musician Jah Prayzah and Dendera king Sulumani Chimbetu.
     Thirty five primary school children in Chikomba District have been selected to benefit from the Alfred Dondo Foundation, a scholarship that was launched on Sunday in Chivhu at Dondo homestead.
    The scholarship program is sponsored by the Swine Company, a subsidiary of the Impala Group which is run by Thompson Dondo. Dondo is from Hokonya area.
    The scholarship is named after the late Alfred Dondo, brother to Thompson, who started the swine project with the intention to help disadvantaged school children.
    "We have started this project in order to assist pupils who have either lost both parents or have disabilities. Education is a right for every child.  I urge everyone who is able to assist such vulnerable children to do so," said Dondo.
    Chikomba District Education Officer Ngoni Mujuru thanked Dondo for assisting the children as there are many in the province with such situations.
    Dondo also took advantage of the launch of the Alfred Dondo Foundation and rewarded excelling employees of the Swine Company, Impala Car Rental and Panascah 24 which is a 24 hour medical centre. education
