Mr Mzi Ncube of Bulawayo (right) handed over a set of plants to the TGSCCC management committee secretary Ms Mendi Gumbo on Monday 24th August 2014. The donation was made by Mrs S K Moyo of Bulawayo, one of many people across Zimbabwe and elsewhere who have pledged their unwavering support for the cultural centre project. The donated plants are of the variegated duranta type which attract butterflies and produce flowers in the summer and bear golden fruit in autumn.
Chairman Tsambani expressed his profound gratitude for the “generous gift,” adding that the centre was now entering a “critical phase” (of construction) following its successful launch on July 25. He appealed for more help stating that the centre will need all the help it can get from supporters and well wishers, adding that donations of cash and kind be channeled through the committee’s treasurer, Ms Paba Dube, mobile telephone number +263783099194.
Chief Gampu IV of Bulilima District, veteran journalist and nationalist Saul Gwakuba Ndlovu, are among Zimbabwe’s luminaries who have either donated or pledged to donate to the centre in recent weeks. The TG Silundika Cultural Community Centre & Memorial Library is an initiative of the surviving children of the veteran nationalist and national hero, the late TG Silundika and is being built and named in his honor. It is hoped that the centre will open its doors for business in January 2017
