vp nkomo 06-03-11.jpgVice President John Nkomo has called on the country’s leadership to commit themselves to ensuring that orphaned and vulnerable children have access to education and other basic services.

Cde Nkomo was speaking during a handover ceremony of 40 boxes of clothing and 360 pairs of shoes for orphans and vulnerable children in Tsholotsho, Matabeleland North.

He said it is disturbing that some community leaders have a tendency of using donated goods for their personal benefits.

Vice President Nkomo called on the community’s leadership to distribute the goods in a transparent manner.

Cde Nkomo said the government through the National Indigenisation and Empowerment Programme will ensure that communities benefit under the Community Share Ownership Trust.
