More than 35 000 people thronged St Noah College in Bocha to witness the official ground breaking ceremony of the St Noah Sports Stadium by President
The Sports Centre is the brainchild of High Priest, Mutumwa Noah Taguta, the leader of the Johane Marange Apostolic Church. The President thanked the people for coming out in their thousands.
“I never thought I would see such a huge crowd because I thought I would just come here and within a short period of time return because I had another engagement
“I am, however, happy and very grateful for such a huge turnout,” said President Mnangagwa.
He commended Mutumwa Taguta for the role he has played in complementing Government in the provision of education and recreational facilities.
“I want to thank the Johane Marange Church for inviting me to officiate at the ceremony for a sports stadium that is going to be the first one to be constructed in the
rural areas,” said President Mnangagwa.
“Something like what we are witnessing today does not just happen or can be done by an ordinary person. It is something that is done by someone with a vision.
Ideas like that do not come to those without a vision and I was talking to your leaders and they were saying they are building six schools at the moment and they
would want to come to Harare and I told them we will provide them land for that.”
He commended Mutumwa Taguta for his efforts in providing educational facilities that not only benefit his congregants but even those from outside.
“Even in urban areas there are very few schools that are as beautiful as the one we are seeing here,” said President Mnangagwa. state media
