24 year old grandson impregnates 66 year old grandmother at Chief Njelele

NembuA daring 24-year old man from Gokwe allegedly impregnated his 66-year-old grandmother. Normore Mudavanhu is the talk of the village for getting Sazini Dube, his maternal grandmother, pregnant. If the baby is born that means it will become his mother’s younger sister.

Therefore, other than being it father, the child will become his aunt or uncle. Chief Njelele in whose jurisdiction the village falls is aware of the matter. “I cannot comment much because the two have not appeared in my court. However, I have heard about the embarrassing incident,” the Chief said.

He’s not surprised because it’s not the first of such incidents from the village.

“A number of people in my area have a tendency of engaging in incestuous relationships. I have dealt with a lot of such cases and I think it’s high time I give tough penalties,” said Chief Njelele. A source who is related to the two told the press that sometime this year it was discovered that the two were having an illicit affair. “Mudavanhu would be seen in the wee hours coming from Dube’s bedroom hut. A family meeting was called and the two were told to drop their illegitimate relationship or they risked being permanently cut off from the family,” said the source.

An apology followed but Dube is now three months pregnant with her grandson’s seed.

Possesed Strippers In Gokwe

REVELLERS at Gokwe Center are being fed with a new nu_de diet from st_rippers who claim to be possessed with demons of nu_dity.

All the way from Harare, the st_rippers have taken over Gokwe T0wn with their art.

They go by the name Five Stars Dance Group consisting of two male dancers and three women.

However, only the female dancers get business as st_rippers and the males remain “showless” in Harare.

The stars of the show are Mayibongwe Sibanda, Nompilo Ndlovu and their leader Cleopatra Ngomambili aka Fanta.

Not until they stripped down to nothing and let men touch their private parts did B-Metro see a story to talk about.

“When we are on stage, it all comes naturally. It’s a demon combined with talent so we won’t be ourselves,” said Fanta.

Money makes the world go round and so revellers demand that the dancers strip down to nothing and let them touch whatever they want.

“If we don’t entertain them fully we won’t get gigs. We are here by popular demand. They touch or see what they want because that is where our money comes from,” she added.

The three dancers are single mothers with children to feed back in Harare.

As tempting as it might be, they said after their shows they keep their distance.

“When done with our set we leave because the crowd in Gokwe is different from the ones we are used to in big cities.

These ones are really rough,” she said.

Whenever the “special ladies” hit the growth point one is assured of two weeks of adult entertainment in the sleepy cotton producing region.

“These ladies have brought life to Gokwe because at times they remove all clothes and let us see everything. They don’t leave us guessing as we also get the opportunity to have a feel of what others hide in their underwear,” said a reveller identified as Kokera.

Their sessions are held at Phuza $ (dollar) arguably the most popular club there. The owner, Bra Eddie declined to comment.

Gokwe and Zvishavane have gone close to a decade without radio transmission

ZVISHAVANE and Gokwe, as well as areas surrounding the two towns in the Midlands Province, have gone for close to a decade without Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) radio and television transmission.

ZBC acquired this 12 channel OB van from China

Residents of the two towns, who spoke to Sunday News recently, said they had not been able to watch ZTV and sometimes could not listen to local radio stations as radio signal was erratic.

The residents said failure by Transmedia Corporation, the country’s television and radio signal carrier, to provide television signal had forced them to rely on satellite television which they, however, said lacked local news coverage.

Zvishavane has gone for 10 years without television transmission while Gokwe North and South districts, which last received television and radio transmission in 2006, have endured about eight years of electronic media blackout.

Chief Mapanzure of Zvishavane last week said his area last received ZBC radio and television transmission in 2004.

The traditional leader said lack of television and radio transmission in his area for the past decade had prejudiced people access to information.

He said most people in his areas had since turned to foreign television stations which they access via Digital Satellite Televison (DStv), while those who could not had been condemned to a complete electronic media blackout.

“If you take a walk around Zvishavane, whether the urban part of it or the rural areas you will observe that almost every household has a satellite dish. This is not because people don’t want to watch local television, but it’s because there has been no transmission.

“We have not had television transmission since 2004, the same with radio. I only get radio signal when I travel to Gweru or Shurugwi,” he said.

The traditional leader called on the relevant authorities to work towards restoring radio and TV transmission in Zvishavane to ensure that people in the district do not continue being left behind in accessing information that is relevant to them through local media outlets.

“Now people are watching news from other countries like South Africa, which may not benefit them in anyway. People should get news that is relevant to them, news about their country, now people in Zvishavane can’t enjoy such a service because of lack of transmission.

“Whoever is in charge of correcting the problem should do so soon enough because our people can’t continue being isolated from the rest of the country,” he said.

Chief Mapanzure’s sentiments where echoed by his Gokwe counterpart, Chief Nemangwe who said his area had not received both radio and television transmission since 2006.

“We have since bought satellite dishes because for the past five or so years we have not been able to tune into ZTV and watch local news and programmes, neither have we been able to listen to radio.

“Radio transmission is erratic, one day there is signal and the next there isn’t. Most of the time we do not have radio signal so what this effectively means is that we hardly listen to radio and are in the dark of what is happening out there,” he said.

Some residents of Gokwe town said what was irking them more about lack of transmission for ZBC’s radio and television stations was that they were still being compelled to pay radio and TV licences yet they were not accessing the service.

“What hurts us more is that we are still being asked to pay licences for radio and TV yet we have not been accessing the service for the past eight or so years. In my view this is not fair.

“We feel we should be exempted from paying licences because we don’t watch TV at all because of lack of transmission,” said Mrs Tambudzai Vingirai of Mapfungautsi suburb in Gokwe.

Transmedia Corporation acting chief operations officer Engineer Tinashe Zinyemba said people in Zvishavane and Gokwe would soon have radio services as the corporation was working on revamping radio transmission around the country.

On television transmission, Eng Zinyemba said most areas that were not receiving signal would be covered on completion of the national digitalisation process.

“We are in the process of revamping our radio transmission network and soon the people in those areas will be receiving radio transmission services. As we are in the process of digitalisation, we have a national roll-out plan that includes Zvishavane, Gokwe and surrounding areas. They will receive full transmission under this new plan,” he said.

Engineer Zinyemba said about 40 percent of the country’s television sites had so far been digitalised with the remainder expected to be covered as soon as the necessary funding was secured.

The television sites that have so far been digitalised are Harare, Bulawayo, Gweru, Masvingo, Mutare, Kamativi, Beitbridge, Victoria Falls, Plumtree and Kenmaur.

“Of the 24 television sites nation-wide, we have digitalised 10 of those sites, namely: Harare, Bulawayo, Gweru, Masvingo, Mutare, Kamativi, Beitbridge, Victoria Falls, Plumtree and Kenmaur.

“The other sites are yet to be digitised. However, we are currently in the process of acquiring the funds to purchase the necessary equipment for these sites,” Eng Zinyemba said.

Transmedia Corporation needs about $30 million to complete digitilisation of the country’s television broadcasting services by next year and meet the 2015 digitisation deadline set by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).

ITU set 17 June 2015 as the deadline for all countries in the world, particularly Third World countries, to migrate from analogue to Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT). DTT reduces operational costs for broadcast and transmission, reduces use of spectrum and provides more capacity than analogue.

My mother was the first woman in Zimbabwe, if not whole of Africa to own an adult literacy school which Mugabe himself came to launch. She also brought family planning to the community. Legendary,”he said

Fans walked out during Macheso’s perfomance

Alick Macheso

Entertainment Reporter
Alick Macheso found the going tough in his territory when fans walked out of a show at the Aquatic Complex when he went on stage in the early hours of Saturday morning.
More than half of the fully-packed complex was cleared when Macheso went on stage just after Oliver Mtukudzi’s performance at the show that also featured Jah Prayzah and Douglas Chimbetu.

Show promoters had probably slated Macheso for last performance banking on the support the musician has in the city but tables turned as fans shunned his performance. It has been a long time since the complex hosted such a huge crowd and expectations were high that Macheso would use the opportunity to show his Chitungwiza fans that he is still a force to reckon with.

But Macheso lost it when his own people dumped him after he performed a few songs. Activity was high outside the venue when people got out of the auditorium, leaving the Madhawu hitmaker performing for a depleted crowd.

About 10 people that now make Macheso’s frontline failed to keep the full house intact due to a pathetic act that left many wondering if the sungura king would safeguard his throne in his stronghold for long.

Besides the popular “Zora Butter” dance, Macheso seemed short of ideas to keep his homeground entertained. He performed until daybreak but the response from the crowd was not encouraging.

The only highlight of Macheso’s performance came when Tryson Chimbetu, who was not officially billed to perform at the show, joined the sungura king on stage. Chimbetu added flavour to the show as Macheso played bass guitar on the song “Saina” to the delight of the audience.

Chimbetu had performed at an earlier show and chose to support his mentor in for the last slot of the star-studded gig.
Jah Prayzah gave the best act of the night through his military drills and energetic performance. Jah Prayzah kept audiences on their feet when he took to the stage after Chimbetu.

The Tsviriyo hitmaker lit up the auditorium with a good act. Hilarous Mabla 10 spiced up Jah Prayzah’s act with his jokes and comic acts.
Although Mtukudzi was in his usual top form, fans seemed unsatisfied with his act. The fully-packed auditorium followed his act without the notable excitement that usually characterise his performances.

It was a long night of exciting mixed fortunes and the big guns of local music should have learnt that the crowd is waiting for new acts to enjoy their performances.
