Emotional...Major Mhembere joins family and friends in a farewell song last Sunday.
The Salvation Army Masvingo Division, Masvingo community and members from different churches gathered at Mucheke Corps on July 23 to bid farewell to Majors Isaac and Charity Mhembere who are leaving for Bulawayo.
The event was graced by Secretary for Programme Administration as well as Lieutenant Colonel T Muzorori who was in the company of his wife W Muzorori.
Semukwe Divisional Commander Lovemore Chidhakwa was also present and he handed over The Whole World Mobilising flag to Masvingo Division.
Lt Col Muzorori encouraged soldiers to wake up from the slumber and take God's duties in the proper way of the Army. He encouraged soldiers to go for Open Air Services to save lost souls, saying the whole World Mobilising flag must be used accordingly and the church must be active in bringing new members to Christ.
Majors Isaac and Charity Mhembere came to Masvingo Division in January 2010 as Divisional Commander and Divisional Director for Women Ministries respectively and they served for almost seven and a half years before their new appointment as Administrators at Enterprise Home in Bulawayo.
Many speakers praised the major for his hard work and zeal for development that saw several projects coming up in different communities of Masvingo.
Soldiers learnt that Major Mhembere was instrumental in projects like the construction of Four Miles Clinic, and was active in the development of water and sanitation projects in Zaka.
He also worked for the construction of Chitenderano Secondary School in Chivi and the Masvingo Division's congress site in Chivi. Major Mhembere oversaw other projects which include food distribution to drought prone areas and he also helped develop the Divisional Headquarters.
Major Luckson Chimbalanga and family will take over the position that has been created with the departure of Major Mhembere and his family.religion
