Don’t Loot Cyclone Donations- Macheso

Sungura musician  Alick Macheso, the humanitarian ambassador of Zimbabwe Red Cross, has called on people not to loot donations meant for Cyclone Idai victims in Manicaland and Masvingo provinces.

Macheso was speaking at Cyclone Idai donations handover in Harare yesterday. Moonlight Funeral Assurance donated four tonnes of maize and clothes; while ARIPO donated blankets via Zimbabwe Red Cross Society. Said Macheso:

We are humbled by the positive response we are getting from the community. This disaster has united us as Zimbabweans and that is very commendable. However, we should continue encouraging each other not to be tempted to loot part of the donated consignment. Converting donated goods to personal use is ethically wrong. Once you take goods meant for the poor, God will deal with you accordingly. So, please let’s not provoke Him.
