Kabwe Central PF member of parliament Tutwa Ngulube has donnated K25,000 to the Magandanyama Disability Club to enable them start a chicken rearing business.
This morning, club chairperson Joseph Phiri complained to Ngulube at David Ramusho Secondary School that since inception in 2013, they had never received any form of assistance to enable them to engage in income generating projects.
“We thank you, honourable, for meeting us, the vulnerable people of David Ramusho ward, in your constituency. From the time we formed this club in 2013, we have not received any help despite writing to several organisations. So we decided to write to your office,” Phiri said.
Phiri said they had a lot of projects which they wished to implement but the immediate one was construction of a shelter to start rearing chickens.
“Land has already been identified where we can build a shelter for us to start the chicken rearing business. We are just constrained with finances,” said Phiri.
In response, Ngulube commended the club members for taking the initiative in seeking ways to improve their livelihood.
“It is encouraging to note that you are seeking for ways to be in a self-sustaining business as opposed to begging on the streets. Since you have already identified a place where build this shelter for your business, I am contributing K25,000 so that you start building immediately,” said Ngulube.
“Forward a list of all the members of the club to my office. I will use the information you will give me to help you benefit from the social cash transfer.”
