#HappyFriday
#DidYouKnow: Patrick Mkwamba once played with the Chicken Run Band after the great Thomas Mapfumo had left, as well as the Four Brothers with the late great Marshal Muhumumwe. He virtually made the radio airwaves his own during the mid-1980s to the early 90s with hits such as ‘Mombe Yehumai’, ‘Usambonyara Kusekwa’ ‘Vakakuda Zviedzo -Ramba Murume Tinwe Hwahwa’ and his smash hit ‘Jonasi – Wapenga Nayo Bonasi’. Mukwamba received quite a substantial amount of money, as royalties from the track “Jonasi” enabling him to buy a house in Chitungwiza, becoming neighbors with the Four Brothers great front man Marshall Munhumumwe.

Please tell us some of the memories you get from Listening to Patrick Mkwamba’s music.�

#DidYouKnow that Zimbabwe is home to both the White and Black Rhino? Can you tell the difference between the two? Here are 5 interesting Rhino facts:
1) White rhinos are much bigger than their cousin the black rhino
2) White rhinos are less endangered. There are less than 2,000 black rhinos left.
3) The white rhino’s name is a mispronunciation of the Afrikaans word for “wide,” referring to its broad upper lip, which is designed for grazing.
4) White rhinos are grazers because their long head allows them to reach the ground and graze the grass, and black rhinos are browsers, feeding from woody bushes and trees.
5) Black rhinos are not very sociable creatures. They are either running from you or charging you!

#DidYouKnow: Comrade Chinx was one of the early members of the band Ilanga with greats such as Don Gumbo, Busi Ncube and Andy Brown. Born Dick Chingaira Makoni, Comrade Chinx would have been a medical doctor after having been offered to study medicine overseas but he failed to acquire travelling documents. Comrade Chinx is considered one of Zimbabwe’s great musicians known for hits such as “Ngorimba”, "Vanhu Vose VemuAfrica"
and his largest hit “Roger Confirm”, which stayed on the then Radio 3’s Hitpick charts for 25 weeks in 1989 and early 1990. Every year since the 1980s during the Heroes Day, Independence Day celebrations and Africa Day holidays, all radio stations in Zimbabwe have continued to play Chinx’s liberation songs. Comrade Chinx passed away on June 16, 2017 and was declared a liberation war hero.

Please tell us some of the memories you have when you listen to Comrade Chinx’ music.

A BIG SHOUT OUT to @Bob Makazhu who recently started his university program at the Sewanee: The University of the South, Tennessee in the United States. When asked what he would tell other students who are wondering if they can also study in the U.S., Bob says “Never underestimate your value. You can’t change your background, but you can build your future!”

Bob did his O'levels at Kambuzuma 1 high school and then received a scholarship from Higherlife Foundation to attend ZRP High school as a boarder. In 2019, Bob applied and was admitted into the EducationUSA's Opportunity Fund Program ( https://zw.usembassy.gov/2019-edusa-opportunity-program-advert/) that assists high-achieving low-income students with information and resources to apply for admission and scholarships to U.S. universities.

Bob is in his third week at Sewanee: University of the South, and he is settling in well with the help of the International Students Office. He is enjoying his classes, including French, Writing and Composition, Calculus and Computer Programming – which are a true reflection of liberal arts education.
If you’re wondering how to begin your own journey, please get in touch with us on this platform #EdUSAatHome.
