Oryx extends helping hand to Katesh disaster victims

MANYARA: WHEREAS several organisations donated food items to victims of recent mudslide in Katesh Township, the Oryx Gas Tanzania Limited (OGTL) has contributed cooking tools.

The company joined hands with others to console the victims while handing over 200 filled gas cylinders, 15 kilogrammes each, and stoves to enable them use clean energy for cooking.

Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office (Policy, Parliamentary Affairs and Coordination), Ms Jenista Mhagama, received the donation, on Sunday, as Manyara Regional Commissioner Queen Sendiga witnessed.

Speaking when receiving the gas cylinders, Ms Mhagama thanked the company for its contribution to the Hanang residents, saying it has come at the right time to help them cook food during this difficult time.

On his part, OGTL’s Head of Sales Department, Mr Shaban Fundi, said the company arrived at the affected area of Katesh to join others in consoling Tanzanians affected by the mudflow which claimed over 80 lives.

“We are aware that our fellow Tanzanians have been seriously affected, and during this time it would be difficult for them to get sources of energy for cooking. Hence, we have come to hand over 200 gas cylinders and stoves,” Mr Fundi stated.

He said the company prays for the deceased to rest in eternal peace, and wishes the injured speedy recovery so that they return to their normal life.
