The corporate world has once again chipped in to contribute to the social welfare of surrounding communities following a $5 000 cash donation to the Kambuzuma Polyclinic by a local energy company, Thuli Petroleum.

The cash donation was aimed at upscaling the social amenities infrastructure in the area by ensuring that local people have got access to perfect health services.

In responding to residents’ concerns, Thuli Petroleum constructed a state of the art service station that will service motorists who had to seek fuel from as far as the Harare central business district. 

The Minister of State for Provincial Affairs for Harare Provice Comrade Mirriam Chikukwa implored businesspeople in the capital to emulate the petroleum company by responding to President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s clarion call to invest heavily in the local economy.

Acting Harare City town clerk Mr Hosiah Chisango said the City of Harare is determined to ensure that there is world class infrastructure in the capital to lure foreign investors.

“The council is developing roadmaps to simplify business processes including reducing the turnaround time for one to be fully licensed to operate,” he said.

The petroleum company has shown confidence in the local economy and has taken the lead, especially in Kambuzuma to show the world that under the new economic order one can provide sustainable business and investment opportunities.
