MASVINGO - National AIDS Council (Nac) provincial manager, Edgar Muzulu will this Friday be reassigned to Mashonaland Central where he will work in the same capacity.
His time as Nac Masvingo provincial manager began in March 2018 when he replaced Evos Makoni, and will end on September 13, 2019.
Muzilu will be replaced by Agrippa Zizhou who has been serving as Mashonaland West Nac provincial manager.
Muzulu said he was pleased with the reception he got from Masvingo, adding that he appreciated the work of all stakeholders including the media in spreading the word of HIV and Aids during his time in Masvingo.
“I am happy with the time I served in Masvingo and I would like to thank all stakeholders including the media for their support in spreading HIV and Aids awareness,” said Muzulu.
Muzulu will begin work in Bindura, Mashonaland Central province on September, 16 2019.
During his time in Masvingo, Muzulu initiated the media awards to encourage journalists to report on issues to do with HIV and Aids.
He has also worked to improve the Sister to Sister model which aims to, among many other things, rehabilitate young girls who have resorted to sex work.
“The Sister to Sister model aims to save young girls by giving them hope that they are worthy to live the most dignified lives. The programme is being implemented in five districts of Masvingo province but efforts are being applied to extent it to the rest of the province,” said Muzulu.
He praised the close working relationship that Nac enjoyed with other key stakeholders like the Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) and Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Service (ZPCS).
Muzulu also hailed the Shangani communities in Chiredzi for agreeing to partner government in improving condition under which their traditional male circumcision rites are performed.
