Musicians

Several artistes visited Chingwizi where the Tokwe-Mukosi flood victims were temporarily settled. Musicians Oliver Mtukudzi, Charles Charamba, Winky D, Leonard Zhakata, Cindy Munyavi, Shiga Shiga, Norman and Jimy of Extra Large, producer Marrian Kunonga and Gary Tight went on the ground to see what the victims are going through.
They went around the camp talking to people who poured out some of the problems they are facing.
After the tour the musicians expressed their views about the situation. Below are some of the comments from the musicians.

Charles Charamba
“We have been seeing this on television and newspapers but now I have come here. This situation needs our help and prayers to God so that these people come back to their normal livelihoods.”

Leonard Zhakata
“As a goodwill ambassador of Zimbabwe Rural Schools Library Trust, I have realised the need for a library here and I will contact the chairperson of the trust so that we can seek books for both primary and secondary schools pupils. One thing I have realised is that these people need books.”

Winky D
“One thing that we have to know as the country and as individuals is that a $1 donation per individual can make a difference to these people. I think these people can be rescued.”

Extra Large
“The situation is pathetic and we need to do all our best to work for these people, not just to come here and watch them like this. So we are hopeful that as artists we will continue assisting these people.”

Cindy Munyavi
“This definitely needs our heart as Zimbabweans because there is need for help here especially for these young ones who need stationery for school and some other things. Zimbabwe let us unite to have these people assisted.”
Lawrence Chinoperekwi of Devine Assignments who initiated the tour said they took the musicians to the place to have a real appreciation of the situation.
“We have taken them here to see what is on the ground and we hope that the show will yield results so that we don’t come back here empty handed,” he said.

Assistant District Administrator Elisa Chauke thanked the musicians for the gifts after they brought maize meal and some clothes.
“We never thought that you could come here to sympathise with us and we want to thank you for the gifts you have brought to us. Our hopes are pinned on every Zimbabwean to assist us in this situation,” said Chauke.
