Mayaya film to be premiéred tonight

HARARE - New local film Mayaya the Seed of Corruption starring actor Dennis Rusoso who played the role of Mayaya in the popular community theatre Sabhuku Vharazipi 2 is expected to be premiéred tonight in the capital at Ster-Kinekor.

The screenplay was done by David Dzatsunga who also helped in writing Sabhuku Vharazipi 2.

“Mayaya’s film does not include the main actors in Sabhuku Vharazipi such as David Mubaiwa, Wellington Chindare and Kumbirai Chikonye and this project is much older than Sabhuku Vharazipi as I wrote it long back.

“The film revolves around the scourge of corruption in religion characterised by those who make money using God’s name and engaging in bloody sacrifices to bolster their powers and influence,” said Dzatsunga.

Dzatsunga told the Daily News that he believes in nurturing talent.

“I taught Rusoso in high school and I know he has all what it takes to be one of the best actors in the country. He played a small role in Sabhuku Vharazipi 2 but he instantly became the darling of many people in the country. He has a lot of potential hence we gave him a platform where he stars as the main character,” he said.

Mubaiwa and Chindare, who played the role of Sabhuku Vharazipi and Chairman respectively in the Sabhuku Vharazipi 1 and 2 community theatre production expressed ignorance over the new development.

However, the two popular actors said they were putting final touches to Sabhuku Vharazipi 3 which is expected any time this year.

“We are going to drop the role of a corrupt Mayaya in our forthcoming production and if there is the need we are going to use a different name altogether,” said Chindare.
