The Chipinge business community has hailed the National Social Security Authority (NSSA) for partnering various stakeholders in improving infrastructure in the town.
Speaking during the Chipinge business community meeting on Monday in Chipinge, the organisation chairperson Mr James Gabaza said the Chipinge community would benefit from various programmes that are being initiated by NSSA.
â€œThe Chipinge business community is grateful for the work being done by NSSA.The organisation has invested millions of dollars in Chipinge and this shows that the organisation has confidence in the people in Chipinge. They are now almost 90% complete finishing the multi million complex in Chipinge which is set to change the face of Chipinge.
â€œNSSA has already assured to us that Chipinge will not be left out on programmes being implemented by NSSA which are aimed at uplifting the lives of ordinary people in marginalised communities.
â€œWe are urging NSSA not to hesitate to knock our doors whenever they want to partner us in investing in Chipinge. At the the moment our office is engaging building owners in Chipinge town to upgrade their structures so that we replicate the new complex. We are engaging the town council and other relevant authority to beatify the town,â€ said Mr Gabaza.
Mr Gabaza however urged NSSA to give a chance to local business people in the allocation of space on the newly building. He said the business community has the potential of setting good standards when given opportunity.
â€œWe are pleading with NSSA to consider locals whenever they allocate space at the new building. We have the potential of setting standards like in big cities,â€ he said.
NSSA last week launched the National Building Society (NBS) an initiative which will benefit the marginalised communities.
Apart from building a state-of-art complex in Chipinge, the institution has carried out social responsibility activities that included donating goods to the poor in the district.
