The Zanu PF Youth League has partnered a gold mining company in Mtoko to empower youths in Mashonaland East Province.

Considered the founders of Pentecostalism in Zimbabwe, Mathias and Mildred Madzivanzira of the once famous Mathias and Mildred Ministries seem to have gone into hibernation away from the pulpit.

However, the couple is very much visible in the mining industry after opening a gold milling plant in the Makosa area of Mtoko where they have breathed life into the usually quiet and horticulture dominated Buja community.

After having noticed the production they are doing in Mtoko, the Zanu PF Youth League led by the Secretary for Youth Affairs, Cde Pupurayi Togarepi decided to partner the couple in empowering youths in participating in the country’s economy.

Mr Madzivanzira, who is a lawyer by profession, has pledged to work with the youths in supplying raw materials needed in gold milling industry.

He also donated 50 goats towards the Zanu PF goat rearing project that was recently launched by the party.

The gold milling plant has capacity to process 300 tonnes of gold ore per day and has also provided employment to locals in Mtoko and neighbouring Mudzi district.
