MP sets up funeral scheme for villagers


GWANDA NORTH MP Madodana Sibanda has clinched a deal with Nyaradzo Funeral Parlour that would see villagers in his constituency benefiting from his contributions.


Speaking at a villager’s burial at Dambashoko in his constituency on Thursday last week, Sibanda told mourners that a family of six would pay monthly contributions of $5 while he pays $1 to enable them to get decent burials.

Sibanda said he had engaged Nyaradzo and signed a contract which would see villagers benefiting from services offered by the institution if they joined the scheme.

“I have signed an agreement with Nyaradzo such that in every six-member family, I contribute a dollar. Nyaradzo is offering funeral and burial services at a cost of $1 per person a month. This means that when you are a family of six you will pay $5 as I would have already paid $1 for the other member. Those who have not yet joined Nyaradzo just go there and tell them you are from Gwanda North and you will benefit from this agreement,” Sibanda said.

He said Nyaradzo was offering very affordable burial services to people across the country and he saw it fit for people in his constituency to benefit. He said Nyaradzo offered members transport (bus) to any place in the country as well as cash amounting to $200.

Sibanda challenged the villagers to avoid paupers’ burials at a time when there are affordable services offered by Nyaradzo.

“It would be very bad to see people being buried without coffins yet we have this affordable offer,” he added.
