Traffic Safety body launches album, video

HARARE - The Traffic Safety Council of Zimbabwe has released a seven-track album and a musical video in its bid to improve safety on the country’s roads.

The album entitled Tsaona was composed by Apostolic Christian Church of Zimbabwe while the video was adopted from Pastor Charles Charamba’s Musatyaire Makadhakwa off his 2007 album New Testament In Song.

Tsaona, which is essentially gospel acapella, revolves around urging road users to exercise responsibility and vigilance all the time.

Tracks such as Tapera netsaona and Tsaona brings back into the spotlight horrific and deadly accidents that have hit the country.

The song Yambiro not only addresses the abuse of alcohol by road users but also highlights the increase in the number of orphans and widows as a result of accidents.

Shumaihla, Ngatichemei and Dombo Rekare are gospel songs which seeks God’s intervention in stopping the carnage on the roads.

The Musatyaire Makadhakwa video depicts loss of lives on the roads as a result of reckless driving.

Charamba’s video shows how property and lives are lost because of drunken drivers.

“The song for which this video was done was recorded in 2007”, said Charamba during the launch of the album and video last Wednesday.

“The Traffic Safety Council found value in its lyrical content and adopted it because it serves a broader purpose now.

“We are happy to have got the opportunity to work with the Traffic Safety Council and stake-holders as we strive for an accident-free nation.

“We pray that God will grant us the strength and wisdom to carry out our duties and ensure safety prevails,” said Zimbabwe’s foremost gospel musician.

Pastor Charamba and his wife Olivia have since been appointed road safety ambassadors by the Traffic Safety Council along with Dynamos football legends George Shaya and David Mandigora. - Tarisai Machakaire
