Skeem Beit Pays Electricity For Beitbridge Mission

Staff Reporter
SKEEM BEIT, Beitbridge and Zimbabwe’s fastest growing entertainment house, last week paid the electricity bill for Beitbridge Mission School to the tune of $50 000.

According to SKEEM BEIT accounting manager Steve Stubbs Muleya (pictured) the gesture was community service in the area where the entertainment house is based.

“We were approached by a local who requested for that assistance and we happily complied. We are part of this community and concerned about it’s growth.

“We want to grow with it as you are aware SKEEM BEIT is a Beitbridge brand,” said Muleya.

“We are associated with that school which has a rich history of Beitbridge. We are proud to give a hand to such great institutions that have moulded the very people of Beitbridge and beyond,” he said.

Head of the school Monica Ndlovu was at loss of words.

“What can we say? We are so grateful. I have now words and we just pray for the generous and thoughtful donation,” she told Beitbridge Eye.

Like most schools in Zimbabwe Beitbridge Mission, one of the country’s oldest schools has its own challenges including cash flow problems with most parents finding it hard to pay fees.

The school has an enrollment of 1700 making it one of the biggest schools in Matabeleland region.

It now has classes for children with other challenges or living with disabilities.

Ndlovu said the school is keen to rid itself of hot-sitting and is currently building a two storey block to cushion classroom shortages.

In a recent interview Ndlovu said they were also appealing for assistance to complete the classrooms block which will change the children’s learning outlook and results.

“We thank management at SKEEM BEIT because their gesture will open the eyes of other possible donors who may not have seen challenges faced by schools.

SKEEM BEIT which recently hosted South Africa star Casper Nyovest in Bulawayo at a show has in the past hosted a soccer tournament to announce their presence in the Zimbabwean entertainment world.

Several activities are planned at the posh joint which has since started introducing Ladies nights on Thursdays.

A director at the multi-million joint said the place will soon offer meals and a coffee bar coupled with an upmarket invitational lounge with capacity to host executives at any level.

“Look, we are in a border town and we must have food 24/7. We are going to have top chefs and the kitchens are being designed to their instructions. We are taking the bar up and not looking back. We will have a place where people can relax in a serene atmosphere second to none,” he said.

Waitresses at the joint were in the recent past seconded to top class joints in the heart of Johannesburg to catch up with modern trends of the trade.

“We are not sparing anything to provide class. We must be able to host conferences, we should be able to host the President. We must just be a top notch place,” said the director.
