Whats planned for the festive season

HARARE - It is that time of the year again when Zimbabweans get busy rolling out their holiday plans after an eventful year that many would rather forget quickly. 

In the arts and entertainment sector, most artists are taking a well-deserved break before they welcome the New Year in a few days’ time. The Daily News on Sunday caught up with some of the artists to hear their plans for the festive season.

Music Promoter Biggie Chinoperekwei

I WILL be working throughout the festive season including on Christmas Day. As promoters and bar owners, our busiest days are public holidays. I will make sure that my customers are happy and they get whatever they want during this festive season hence I am not taking a break. I will only go to holiday after the festive season.

Socialite and businessman Tinashe Mutarisi

I will spend the Christmas holiday with my in-laws in their rural home in Masvingo. I was promised road runners and goat meat among other traditional foods.

Comedian Carl Joshua Ncube

I will be cooking throughout the day to feed people around my kitchen. I will be cooking things sourced from people’s gardens and less from the stores.

Former Harare mayor Bernard Manyenyeni

The family budget is very tight to do much. We are likely to be joined at home by my parents and one of our sons will be home for Christmas. 

Businessman and music promoter Thompson Dondo

I will spend my Christmas Holiday in Cape Town in South Africa. As Impala Car Rental, we have a brand in Cape Town hence I will be monitoring it closely. I will take my family there too.

Musician Kelly Rusike

Festive season is always a time we should reserve to give thanks to the creator and celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. It’s also a time we should spend with our loved ones, those close to the heart. I will spend the festive season giving thanks to the Lord and praying for a brighter future for our country, Zimbabwe.

Businesswoman and music promoter Barbra “Mama Redrose” Chikosi

I am going to spend Christmas holiday with my family in my rural area in Bocha, Marange in Mutare. I am looking forward to enjoying sadza remhunga and goat meat. 

New Revelation Church leader Miracle Paul

On Christmas Day, I will start with a prayer in Harare between 7am and 8am. After that, I will visit Rujeko Orphans Centre in Harare to donate some few Christmas gifts. After visiting the orphanage, I will proceed to my rural home in Rushinga where I am planning to visit Mary Mount Mission Hospital to share some Christmas gifts with newly-born babies. 

Musician/actress Edith WeUtonga

I will have some performances. However, most of the time I will be with my family as this is the only time we get together from across the region and abroad just to have quality family time.

Grace Abound Church leader/prophet Vakayi Maposa

I will spend the day here in Kwekwe with my family. After that, we will be busy organising for our annual Cross-Over Night.

Playwright Silvanos Mudzvova

I am not travelling to Zimbabwe (from the United Kingdom) this holiday. I will be working on my forthcoming play titled “The Bench.” Instead of enjoying the Christmas Day, I will be writing the play-scripts from December 22 to January 4. I usually write my new scripts during this period.

Musician Dino Mudondo

I would have loved to come home for Christmas because it’s been long since I left Zimbabwe. I miss all my friends, fans and family. However, I will be having shows/concerts in and around South Africa. As a result, I would like to wish all my Rastakwasa fans a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous 2019 and I promise you a brand new album early next year.

DStv official Liz Dziva

Jesus is the reason for the season and for me the true meaning of Christmas is love so I will be spending Christmas with those I love and care about including orphans at Hatcliff Children’s Home and of course my family.
