GWERU – Newly appointed Midlands Show Society ambassadors, Mr and Miss Midlands Show, have pledged to tackle drug and substance abuse initiatives in the Midlands.
 In an interview with The Mirror, Scholastica Makoni, appointed Miss Midlands Show, said drug and substance abuse has destroyed many people’s lives and needs to be clamped down so that it won’t affect future generations.
 “We plan to start a campaign called ‘Set us free’, a mental health programme that deals with issues we face as youths.
 “We have so many social ills plaguing our society such as drug and substance abuse, theft, and suicide among others. As a movement, we are seeking to clamp down on this scourge so that future generations are spared,” she said.
 The beauty therapist student said she wanted to find out the real cause of the problem by discussing it with teenagers so that lasting solutions are found.
 “We are looking forward to working with counsellors and mental health therapists,” she said.
Matemba said he would hold drug abuse awareness seminars.
 “I will teach the youth about how dangerous drugs and substance abuse are through seminars and host charity dinners and music concerts aimed at raising funds for the less privileged,” he said.
 Other ambassadors are Natalie Kutamirepi (First Princess), Zoe Chabururuka (second Princess) and Winnet Sungai (Miss Culture).
 In men category, Bongani Sinolila was voted the First Prince, while Hillary Chinobva landed as the second prince. Drew Lordshare was voted Mr. Culture.
