MASVINGO – Masvingo Scouting Association has selected 23-year-old Tafadzwa Nkata Shumba to represent the province among the Zimbabwean scouts contingent which left the country yesterday (Wednesday) for Germany where they will spend the next 14 days.
Shumba, who is the provincial rover scouts leader, joined nine other rover scouts who are heading to the European country representing their scouting provinces.
Speaking to TellZim News before his departure, Shumba said being nominated for the opportunity was a privilege and was proud to represent the province and the nation.
"Being invited and nominated was a real privilege and a once in a lifetime opportunity so I am proud to be representing my nation and I am proud to be a member of the Zimbabwe National Scouts Organisation (NSO)," Sibanda said.
He said the trip will contribute to his wealth of experience as a scout due to the many fruitful activities that he will be exposed to during his time in Germany.
Masvingo NSO provincial commissioner Silvester Chin'anga said he was confident that Sibanda will represent the province well.
"We have no doubt the boy will raise the Masvingo and Zimbabwe flags high and make us proud. I have confidence in him and whatever he will learn there is not going to be for himself alone but for the growth of the whole scouting movement," said Chin'anga.
Shumba is a beneficiary of a German scouting programme that is organised every four years as a way of sharing experiences with scouts from other countries.
This year's programme is expected to host about 4 000 scouts from Germany and 500 from elsewhere.local
