Mberengwa – Barmlo Holdings, a fast growing indigenous company in Mberengwa held an end of year part four days before Christmas in which 17 workers walked away with prizes for outstanding performance.
All workers were given food hampers.
Mberengwa Rural District Council CEO Thompson Maeresera who was the guest of honor hailed Banabasi Marambire, the managing director of Barmlo for continuing to provide jobs under circumstances where many companies are shutting down and sending workers home.
Artist Trevor Dongo, the Barmlo Holdings brand ambassador was also honoured at the party held at Gamunorwa Cocktail Bar at Mberengwa. He also provided entertainment together with King Shaddy at the event.
Important guests who attended were Mberengwa DCC Ndeya Nyede, Chief Mposi, Mberengwa DSI Germination Moyo, ZRP senior officers inspectors Mtombeni and Mariga, Mberengwa ZPCS officer-in-charge Mushoriwa and Mberengwa Primary head Silindeni Hove.

Marambire said workers are the foundation of any organisation and it was important for employers to acknowledge their contribution.
Maeresera said that it was remarkable for a company to wither the Covid19 storm and go on to give awards to workers.
“It is actually a blessing to have a job especially in this time where more companies are closing due to economic hardships. We should applaud Marambire for ensuring that workers still have jobs,” said Maeresera.
