Marabini, Ndebel release traffic safety songs

BULAWAYO - Musicians Jeys Marabini and Sandra Ndebele have released songs that urge drivers to exercise caution on the roads in line with the ambassadorial status bestowed on them by the Traffic Safety Council of Zimbabwe.

The two celebrated Bulawayo artistes, who were appointed ambassadors for the Southern Region by the Traffic Safety Council of Zimbabwe alongside football legends Peter Ndlovu and Rahman Gumbo, released the songs last weekend.

Ndebele did a song called Qaphela (Beware) before teaming up with Afro-jazz star Marabini on the track Tshayelani Kahle.

The songs’ videos are being distributed for free by the Traffic Safety Council of Zimbabwe in a bid to stem carnage on the roads.

Ndebele and Marabini’s initiative is similar to the one made by Zimbabwe’s gospel music couple Charles and Olivia Charamba.

The Charambas are the traffic safety ambassadors for the Northern Region alongside football icons George Shaya and David Mandigora.

Marabini is hopeful that the two songs will encourage responsible driving. “We hope the songs will make people change their behaviour and attitude.

“As a result, we feel honoured for being chosen to represent our beloved nation” said the Umuzi kababa hit-maker during the launch of the two songs at a Bulawayo hotel.

Minister of State for Bulawayo province Eunice Sandi, who was the guest of honour, praised the two musicians’ contribution to the quest to create safer roads.

“Music plays a crucial role in our society. The use of music in this case is a wise way of transmitting messages about traffic laws,” said Moyo.

Moyo also underscored the need for the soccer legends who have been accorded ambassadorial responsibilities by the Traffic Safety Council of Zimbabwe to come up with their own unique initiative that will encourage responsible driving.
