The Con Tools and Chicken Slice brand-proprietor said he was touched by the plight of the family, which was sleeping in the open with their furniture scattered around them and exposed to rains.
“Their house was sold to someone else so they were sleeping outside, with their belongings. We decided to rent them a full house in the same neighbourhood until the case is over,” said Mutyebere.
“Imagine at this time of the year if the rain season had started, what it could have done to the furniture. In the event that they lose the court battle, we will continue to assist them with anything they require.”
In Chirumanzu, in Masvingo province, the soft-spoken businessman is assisting several widows and building a church for the community.
“I am taking care of 40 widows, giving them groceries and assisting them to start income generating projects. My wife identified them, she is the brainchild of the project,” said Mutyebere.
He is presently building a church for the Apostolic Faith Mission, which has a seating capacity of more than 2 000 at Chaka.
Various educational institutions around the country have benefited from Mutyebere’s generosity, where he has donated books and other equipment.
He is also paying school fees for more than 50 primary school-children and pastors at theological schools around the country.
