Mobile Chapels have made their way into Zimbabwe after First Mutual Funeral Services introduced them as a way of adapting to the possible new normal way of operating induced by the COVID-19 pandemic, The Sunday News reports.
This was confirmed by First Life Mutual managing director Ms Ruth Ncube who said the mobile chapel is a necessity especially during the ongoing pandemic which has seen the government introducing a cocktail of measures in a bid to contain it.
Speaking to the publication, Ms Ncube said:
This is a key development for the company as we complete our service value chain. We have a significant client base in the southern region and our view is to deliver a unique yet affordable service offering.
Speaking about opening a branch in Bulawayo and possibly opening another one in Masvingo and Midlands Province, Ms Ncube said:
This geographical presence will ensure that we cater for all our clients from Victoria Falls to Beitbridge and of course the whole of Bulawayo Province. We are already finalising our implementation plans in Masvingo and the Midlands
A Botswana company, Aleyo Capital, a few weeks ago bought a stake into First Mutual Holdings for P61 Million which saw the group diversifying into another country.
