Gospel hip-hop artist Thew Botter plans to visit Mzuzu Prison
Gospel artist Thew Botter is set to visit the Mzuzu main prison on the 23rd of June and donate various goods. Apart from the donations the artist and his team will also preach God’s forgiveness and inspire the inmates to trust God and also know that people outside the walls of the prison care about them.
The artist has been asking his friends, family and fans to donate goods like soap, salt, beddings, clothes and also any amount of money in order to reach the needy inmates and all this has been done through a Facebook page created for the fundraiser.
Asking the artist what measures he and his team have put in place to make sure the goods reach the targeted people who are the inmates the artist has made it clear that there will be frequent visits to the prison and interrogations will be under way to find out whether the prisoners receive the donations.
Thew also said that the primary purpose why they will visit the prison is to preach the gospel and the donations are secondary.
Asking him who else will be joining the team to the prison he mentioned of Non governmental organizations like Bright Vision Organisation and Citizenship Impact Organisation just to mention a few.
