PROWEB and it’s Board of Trustees would like to thank it’s past president Sibusisiwe P. Bango (Busi) for an amazing two years of service. When she started the role she had big shoes to fill taking over from the inaugural president Florence Ziumbe. But she made it a personal goal to maintain the standards of her predecessor and take them higher.
Busi believed in getting things done by whole-heartedly committing to your goals. She would use her time in spreading this ethos and instilling these values into our members.
She pushed members to attend PROWEB initiatives and to commit to attending meetings. She was a massive advocate for the on-going improvement in communication within the group. She encouraged people to respond to emails, give feedback and offer suggestions for programmes.
Busi kept the group going although the economic situation was difficult in Zimbabwe. PROWEB managed to forge ahead and achieve some of its strategic goals. They improved in areas of wealth creation, networking, capacity building, and advocacy. More importantly, PROWEB managed to keep its philanthropic arm alive. We gave back as much we could which was critical in maintaining our relationship with the community.
PROWEB and all it’s stakeholders expresses their sincere appreciation for her significant addition. We will always be grateful for her the continuous growth and relevance she brought to the organization. We are not saying goodbye as much as we are saying thank you. We wish her all the best in her future endeavours and will keep her close by as a friend and mentor.
