“Our services as Nyaradzo are also frontline so we know how important it is to protect workers against the contagious disease.
“We chose to partner The Mirror in our celebrations because ndimwi masahwira acho. As an essential service we salute your contribution in spreading information on the need to sanitise, to maintain social distance and to mask up.
“Our message is let’s spread the message not the disease and to that effect we have put in place measures that enable us to do business with our valued clients virtually like toll free numbers, Sahwi chatbot, self-service portal and easy payment methods using mobile phones or in supermarkets,” said Mawoyo.
Mawoyo was accompanied by Morgan Chinyamupemberi the branch supervisor and Simbarashe Mberi client service inspector during the handover.
