Stanbic Bank and Ideal Corp Private Limited yesterday unveiled a new mosquito repellent called Mozzi-B-gone which they donated to four children’s homes in Harare.

Mozzi-B-gone is a pellet that is placed on a wrist or ankle band and is worn when visiting malaria-prone areas.Homes that received the repellent were Village of Hope Charity Home, Jabulani Children’s Home, Hupenyu Hutsva Children’s Home and Harare Children’s Home.

Stanbic Bank head for marketing and corporate affairs Mr Palmer Mugavha said the new repellent would compliment mosquito nets in fighting malaria.

“Seventy five percent of all malaria deaths in the world are related to children under the age of five years. That’s why we saw it fit to start donating the product to charity homes.”
