    CHIKOMBA – The MP for Chikomba West constituency who is also the Minister of Industry and Commerce, Mike Chakanaka Bimha has donated 200 benches worth $10 000 to Chikomba Rural District Council.
    The benches are for the local authority's two community halls, one in the town centre and the other at Chivhu location.
    The donation was made at a function held at Chikomba RDC offices on Friday last week and the furniture was handed over by the Minister to the local authority's chairman. 
    Dignitories who attended the event included Mashonaland East PA Tavabarira Kutamahufa, Chief Nyoka, Chief Mtekedza, Chief Kareya, Chief Ranga, Chief Neshangwe, council CEO Luckson Mutara, council chairman Pardon Mudzimu and councillors.
    Minister Bimha approached SURFACEWILMAR, a Harare based company that makes Pure Drop cooking oil into provide finances for making the furniture as part of the latter's socio-corporate responsibility.
    The contract to make the benches was then given to Mafika which is a Chivhu-based company.
    Bimha was also the guest of honour at the ground breaking ceremony of The Bees Sports Academy which is being sponsored by Zimbabwean former Boxing Champion, Charles Manyuchi.
    Bimha thanked SURFACEWILMAR for the financial assistance given towards the furniture.
    Bimha said he decided to engage a local company to make the benches and not a Harare based company since he was aware that there were locals who could create names and market themselves.
    SURFACEWILMAR Human Resources Executive, Olice Chuma said his organisation was happy to be working with Bimha after the Minister approached them with an appeal for assistance with furniture.
    Mafika investments director, Ronald Mafika thanked the Minister for bringing the furniture making contract home and this benefitted many people because of the downstream and upstream effect.
