Joy as open-handed mbinga Wicknell Chivayo donates US$1 million to Zion Christian Church


Harare businessman Mr Wicknell Chivayo yesterday donated US$1 million to Zion Christian Church (ZCC) to help fund its national projects, most of which have uplifted communities.

Mr Chivayo made the donation during the church’s Easter Passover festival at Mbungo Estates in Bikita district, Masvingo province where President Mnangagwa was the guest of honour.

The donation was announced by the church’s leader, Bishop Nehemiah Mutendi.

“There is this young businessman, Chivayo, who is doing great works. He donated some money to our church. It is a six-zero figure, US$1 million. We are quite happy as a church and that is a show of love and kindness,” said Bishop Mutendi.

Mr Chivayo was part of the dignitaries that attended yesterday’s annual event where more than 150 000 pilgrims drawn from Zimbabwe and 18 other countries were gathered.

ZCC has over the years built schools, clinics and helped to ensure national food security through elaborate agriculture activities at its estate.

The youthful businessman has of late been donating vehicles to several artistes as part of his efforts to support the arts industry.

Artistes that have benefited from Mr Chivayo’s benevolence include Alick Macheso, Jah Prayzah, Nicholas Zakaria and Sulumani Chimbetu, among others.
