School Receives Furniture Donation From Former Students

School Receives Furniture Donation From Former Students

The Mzingwane Old Boys Association (MOBA), a Trust formed by former Mzingwane High School students, on Thursday donated 105 desks and chair sets to their former school, located in Esigodini.

The donation brings to 220 the number of desks and chairs that have been donated by the MOBA since 2020.

The furniture was received by the headmaster Stanley Tizora, School Development Committee (SDC) Chair Comfort Mujekesa and several staff members.

Speaking during the handover of the furniture, an alumni member Qobolwakhe Mayisa, said:

The Mzingwane Old Boys Association ( MOBA) donated a further 105 desks and chair sets to Mzingwane High School in Esigodini.

It brings to 220 the desks and chairs donated by the old boys since it was registered as a Trust in 2020.

The desks and chairs project came about when some old boys visited the school and found it in a sorry state with classrooms full of broken unusable furniture.

In fact, most of the facilities we took pride in have become dilapidated or completely derelict.

The school, once a leading school in the country and the pride of Matabeleland South has seen standards fall so badly that it doesn’t even feature in top 100 school rankings for the country.

A desk and chair campaign was launched for Old Boys to buy a desk and chair set. The campaign was a roaring success marshalled by the incredibly talented and energetic team organising that included Chris Manguruve, Maxwell Masuku, Nkululeko Innocent Dube, former Mzingwane teacher Willard Dungeni and one of the most creative marketing chaps I have ever come across, one Aaron Chingombe among others.

In no time 120 sets had been delivered to the school by Christmas of 2020. The furniture was manufactured by a Bulawayo based company.

The delivery yesterday was the second large delivery and included books donated through South Africa based Dj Zwest.

Mayisa said the donation was the first project done by MOBA and more are being planned to transform the school into one of the best in Zimbabwe.

Tizora said the donation will help the school in providing enough furniture for learners and also ensure social distancing to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
