Winds of change for Zimbabwe

By Bookey Peek | Country Director

Dear Supporters,

Last night, the tanks rolled into Harare and shots and explosions were heard in the direction of Mugabe’s mansion in the northern suburbs. The army, they maintain, is “targeting criminals” - Something had to happen to stop Mugabe’s wife, Grace from taking over. Not only have we run out of money, but we are now being told that the factories have no raw materials to manufacture basic commodities, like cooking oil and flour. People are being encouraged to do their shopping in Botswana or South Africa - as if that’s even remotely possible for our impoverished population.  

Fortunately, all the action is in the north and today, Bulawayo goes about its business as usual. Rumours abound, but the likelihood is thats the sacked Vice President Mnangagwa will soon be leading the country - although into what exactly, we do not know.

Despite all the disruptions, you will be happy to hear that the children are still receiving their daily lunch, and that we have enough supplies to last them until the end of the term. We always budget for mealie meal - the children use around 1.5 tones in a term, but very luckily, National Foods has been providing it to us for free up to now - a massive help!

Since my last report, we have had the following expenses:

Transport and casual labour - $170

Tomatoes - $70

Payment to cooks (until end of term) - $300

Total: $540

Keep watching the news - and hopefully this will all be over very soon and the country can return to some sort of “normality." In the meantime, don’t worry about the children, we’ll make sure that the food keeps coming!

On behalf of Marula school and its happy children - thank you as always!
