The third annual Slabbert Mzuvukile Steve Mbiza Lecture was a nostalgic gathering for his adherents, with a strong focus on the future. The event was hosted by the Revelation Church of God in their facility at Eyethu Mall in Khayelitsha. The late Mbiza is the father of Prophet Samuel Mbiza, aka Dr Radebe, founder of the church. Mbiza senior was lecturer and community leader who was remembered on the day. The day was also important for the church as it was the official opening of its computer lab at its facility. According to the church leaders, it was crucial for the church to give back to the community and assist the youngsters. “Two years ago a young boy was testifying in church about how being a member of the church turned his life around. I was moved by how he was determined to go back to school. He told me that he usually took the money meant for his lunch and spent it at the internet cafe to do research work,” said Mbiza. He said he was moved by this and that was when he got the idea to open a computer lab in the church. The lab has 15 functioning computers and tablets with dedicated tutors to teach youngsters basic computer skills. “As you may all know that as a country we are way behind when it comes to technology so this is one of the ways we can get our children a boost in the right direction,” he said. The school partnered with UCT, Mbiza senior was a language lecturer at the university. Mbiza said that it took them a whole year to make the lab a reality and added that it was not just for children of the church. “It was difficult because we didn’t have a sponsor to fund us for this but we managed even though we were looking at 20 computers, we are happy with the 15.We also invite local children because this church is part of the community and this is one of our ways of making sure that the community benefits from having us around,” he said.
