GOSPEL musician Matheus Mhere was yesterday appointed Zimbabwe Amalgamated Housing Association (Zaha) Charity Homes ambassador.
The deal saw the musician getting a residential stand in Norton and will soon be given a top-of- the-range of car.
Speaking at a Press conference in the capital yesterday, Mhere said he was humbled by the new position and would work hard in making sure that most Zimbabweans get decent accommodation.
“The word of God says gratitude without deeds is nothing and I will work hard to ensure that everyone gets decent accommodation,” said the soft spoken musician.
Speaking at the same occasion Zaha director Killer Zivhu said Mhere’s role is to identify those who need to be assisted with accommodation in society.
“He will go around looking for those who are vulnerable in society, those who can’t afford to get accommodation. He will also assist us in making charity shows that would assist us to help those people he would have identified,” said Zivhu.
He added that they have decided to give him a residential stand in Galloway Park, a place where the association has already started servicing residential stands.
Yesterday, the musician, together with officials from Zaha and Allied Bank, visited the park where they were inspecting the equipment hired to service the stands.
Speaking at the same occasion Patson Chimbodza of Chipaz Promotions said there was need for companies to work with artists.
“This should be an eye-opener to different companies to work with artists and promoters in making sure the arts industry grows,” said Chimbodza.
Mhere will join artists like Blessing Shumba, Alick Macheso, Tryson Chimbetu and Oliver Mtukudzi who have been working with corporates.
