Suspended Zi-FM Stereo deejay Tinopona Katsande who hit the headlines over a leaked sex tape has turned to charity work through a programme to assist sick children. The programme, which is called “Celebrities Combined”, is an initiative involving public personalities in the arts industry and aims to raise money for children that are in need of life-saving medical assistance.

The celebrity group launched a charity campaign to raise US$100 000 for five-year-old Natasha Sanyanga who needed an urgent bone marrow transplant in India.

“We managed to reach the target and Natasha received her life-saving operation in India. She is still recovering and is now receiving chemotherapy. She is recovering well,” noted Katsande on her Facebook page.

She thanked Zimbabweans in the country and abroad for their donations and announced that her organisation was embarking on another task to save an eight-year-old girl from Mutoko.

“Please let’s do it again and save young Ashley Mutengwa who has a hole in her heart and requires an urgent heart surgery.

“Our target is US$5 000 and together we can make this miracle happen and save the girl’s life,” she said.

While some people view Katsande’s initiative as a mere face-saving gimmick, the radio personality argues she has always worked for charity causes even before the negative events in her life.

The last 12 months have been tough for Katsande who was bashed by her boyfriend inNovember last year  in a domestic violence case that spilled into the courts.
