In a bid to increase entertainment variety, the show organisers have asked the Zimbabwe National Dance Association to provide at least 12 cultural groups which will perform daily at the Culture Village stand.

According to Nyadzisai Mirisawu, the finance and marketing executive at the Zimbabwe National Traditional Dance Association, six groups will be performing today. 

“Tomorrow (Wednesday), we are bringing six groups which will perform during the Hosea Mapondera Memorial Show.

“The performing groups are Villa 1 Nyau Club from Mbare, Kondwane Gure of Domboshawa, Kondanane  Chimutali, Shingai Dance Troop of Mufakose, Chitubuko Zambia from Mt Hampden and Chingwirizano ChaMalawi.

Zimbabwe Agriculture Society spokesperson Heather Madombwe told the Daily News recently that more than 300 exhibitors would be taking part in this year’s event.

The entry fees have remained unchanged since the introduction of dollarisation in Zimbabwe. Children under the age of 12 will pay $1 while adults will fork out $5 per head.
