  • TO THE RESIDENTS OF VICTORIA FALLS –I have witnessed how the Vic Falls community all pull together in times of need. Anyone willing to assist or help with a small donation to help this little girls family with funds, please see banking details below. Should anyone want to send Get Well cards to Precious, please kindly drop cards off at Seven Eleven before Friday for the attention of Heather Steyn. Lets show this little girl that everyone cares.

Last Friday morning there was an accident on the Ascot road in Bulawayo. It looked like a young girl child had been hit by a vehicle. A message was posted on the Bulawayo Notice Board on facebook asking people to help pray for her survival and for all involved in this terrible accident. It didn’t take long before the actual facts came to light. The little girl ‘Precious Ngwenya’ (12) was travelling on a minibus to school when the bus made a turn, the door opened and Precious fell out onto the road, the vehicle travelling behind couldn’t avoid running her over.

Both her legs were damaged to such an extent that the surgeons had no option but to amputate both her legs, one above the knee and one below on Friday afternoon. Precious is still at UBH in the pediatric wing and is doing as well as can be expected under the circumstances but as we can all well imagine the costs to follow for her care and rehabilitation are going to be high.

The Bulawayo community has rallied together and are trying to fundraise to cover the expenses and as such have set up a trust account which will be managed by a reputable accountant. If any of you are wanting to donate funds to go to Precious the details of the Zimbabwe account are as follows: Precious Ngwenya, Agribank, York house, acc number 151000072751.

When Precious was asked what she would like she answered “Please pray for me.”


  • A CLEAN AND GREEN VICTORIA FALLS …?! Imagine if … each home and business took care of just their verge the dream of a ‘clean and green Victoria Falls’ could become a reality! For no cost we we can all cut grass, pick up rubbish, tidy up and take away garden refuse. If funds allow, we can paint the walls (use economical and attractive Cemwash) and plant grass. Leave the leaves to prevent the dust. Quite a few caring people are already      doing this. Let’s take responsibility and join them. BECOME A ‘VERGILANTE!’ If you don’t have the resources to move the rubbish and garden refuse to the dump, where it belongs, a whole street could get together and hire a truck?

Or put it all in one place and ask the council for assistance? Please don’t simply move the rubbish and garden refuse to empty land! Animals are eating plastic bags and suffering. Non indigenous plants are spreading through the park. Until you can get garden refuse to the dump keep it inside your property. Make compost! Don’t burn. Leave the trees and shrubs on the verges! Apart from being beautiful, they provide oxygen, shade, absorb sound, prevent soil erosion, blocked drains and dust pollution, and increase your land value. You may not be aware that these belong to the community (not the property owner). And last, but not least, let’s congratulate those who already are ‘Vergilantes!’ Print this out and spread the word. Call Sue on 0778 89 77 30 if you have any positive suggestions or can help in any way.
