President Emmerson Mnangagwa has likened Sakunda Holdings Chief Executive Officer Kudakwashe Tagwirei to the Biblical Apostle Peter following his donation of an assortment of equipment to the government for use in the fight against the novel coronavirus.
Receiving the donations that were availed by Tagwirei on Thursday, President Mnangagwa said:
I want you all to know, that we accept with similar gratitude whatever you have brought but, of course, even Jesus had twelve disciples but we all know he had more favour towards Peter.
I don’t know the reason but maybe Peter quickly understood Jesus more than the others.
I am saying so because I have a list of Sakunda who have done quite a lot in the volumes of the things that we need.
Sakunda Holdings donated equipment worth US$2.6 million and the Arundel Hospital for free to be used by every Zimbabwean in need at no cost.
The equipment included PPEs, 15 emergency ventilators, 40 portable ventilators, and 35 thousand rapid testing kits.
