John Nyamande was the House of Assembly member for Makoni Central but died in a horrific car crash. The donation comprised of 100 boxes of tender care stretch care synthetic powdered gloves, one Blood pressure machine, one stethoscope, thermometers, 100 boxes of white polythene aprons, disposable face masks, LG mobile phones with charger, Econet line and four nurse watches. Speaking at the handover ceremony on behalf of Nyamande Foundation, the late legislators wife, Emma Nyamande bemoaned lack of equipment and drugs at the hospital saying this had comprised health delivery in the constituency.

She said the donated equipment was set to improve the working conditions of workers who were working without proper protective clothing, exposing them to various diseases. I was shocked when I visited this hospital and was told that mothers were failing to deliver because there was a shortage of latex gloves. This is one of the reasons why the John Nyamande Foundation chose to assist this hospital, she said. Don Nyamande, the son of the late legislator, said the donation was to fulfil promises made by his late father to the people of Makoni.

This donation is the first of many developmental programmes that are in the pipeline to fulfil our fathers promises, he said, adding that Nyamande Foundation was registered in the UK and would continue to serve the people of Makoni. Manicaland Provincial Medical Director, Dr Milton Chemhuru, paid his gratitude to the Nyamande family saying the donation would improve health delivery in Makoni.
