ZIMBABWEANS living in Gauteng’s Leondale Inter D in the East Rand , will be hosting a ‘Zimbabwe Heritage Day’ to celebrate Zim culture.
The event, which be held in September will celebrate Zim life by hosting a number of yet to be named, gospel artists from Zim, Ndebele and Shona traditional dancers, as well the conventional entertainment for kids such as jumping castles.
There will also be free traditional food being served such as madhora, mahewu, managai, mufushwa etc, all topped with the all time popular Zim brand drink Mazoe.
“The event is mainly to preserve our culture and promote a sense of togetherness,” says one of the event’s organisers Edward Muchatuta.
In addition to entertainment, the event , which is running for the second year running will have stands for interested businesses and NGO’s.
“We will also have officials form the Zimbabwe Embassy and the SA Ministry of Home Affairs as a way to build bridges with the Zimbabwean community in SA. So those who have questions about anything can hear it from the horses’s mouth ” adds Muchatuta.
Though the Zimbabwean community in Leondale will be funding the get- together earmarked for 24 September, those willing to donate money, goods or help transporting guests are welcome to make their pledges. – www.zimsinsa.com
