Precious Manomano Herald Correspondent

Access to water is improving at Chikurubi Maximum Prison following the commissioning of a borehole at the Canine School (Dog Section) by The Salvation Army Chief Secretary, Colonel Tineyi Mambo.

Salvation Army Men’s Ministries provided funds for the borehole.

Colonel Mambo thanked the Men’s Ministries for the good work.

“I would like to commend the Men’s Ministries for responding to a call to assist the ZPCS with a borehole. I am glad to tell you that this borehole drilling project is part of the Prison Fellowship pillar of the Men’s Ministries,” said Colonel Mambo.

Territorial Men’s Ministries Secretary, Major Kumbirayi Kazembe said the Prison Fellowship seeks to collaborate with the ZPCS to promote the successful rehabilitation of inmates.

“Among other goals, we also seek to build a strong relationship between God and those who are in prison through evangelism. The Men’s Ministries provide psychosocial, moral and spiritual support to inmates, officers and their dependants.

“We are also involved in building trust and mending broken relationships between the inmates and the communities through restorative justice,” said Major Kazembe.

ZPCS Chaplain Benson Mhaka thanked the Salvation Army saying it has indeed proved that it is a Church living its biblical mandate that is pronounced in Mathew 25 verse 36: “I needed clothes and you clothed me; I was sick and you looked after me; I was in prison and you came to visit me.”

Colonel Mambo was accompanied by the Secretary for Programme Administration, Lieutenant Colonel Sipho Mbangwa; Major Kazembe; Territorial Public Relations Secretary, Major Tapera Foroma; Territorial Youth Secretary, Major Elvis Chimombe; Assistant Financial Secretary, Captain Edward Wunganai and Assistant Property Secretary, Captain Edwin Ndoro.
