Cook Off the Movie

Today's Google Doodle is Zimbabwe's very own #Mbira!!

We love that Cook Off the Movie has mbira on the soundtrack!

In fact the film's writer/director Tomas Lutuli Brickhill is the lead singer in mbira-punk band Chikwata.263, and their music features in the film (we know, we know, he's a man of many talents).

Here's a taste of their unusual and funky sound – mbira-playing courtesy Hector Rufaro Mugani.

Following the disaster that is continuing to strike our beloved country caused by the Cyclone IDAI , Yesterday @The Simon Nyarugwe Foundation ran a campaign with Backabuddy .

I had made Red Cross Zim the benefactor of this campaign as i was guaranteed the aid would distributed efficiently by them

https://www.backabuddy.co.za/cyclone-idai

The response has been phenomemal .. the friends of the Simon Nyarugwe Foundation came through for us ..

The Women Presidents Organisation ( Canada) ad Sesego Foundation (South Africa) has donated 211 boxes of Manna packs that is 46000 meals . The packs are ready to be collected at the Sesego Foundation Warehouse in Germiston SA ..

Unfortunately the Simon Nyarugwe Foundation doesnt have the capacity to transport the given aid to Zimbabwe as it stands .. We would have loved to but we lack necessary capital to do so ..
Will you be able to facilitate the transportation?

Thank you much

Zimbabwe Today

Only if we can think and behave like this.

Saw this today but couldn't share it so copied and pasted:

DEAR ZIMBABWEANS
🇿🇼🇿🇼🇿🇼🇿🇼🇿🇼🇿🇼🇿🇼
A humble request to every Zimbabwean - let's share this message of hope
1. Don't throw garbage on the roads/streets​. ( please STOP dumping rubbish bags on the roads too )
2. Don't spit or urinate on roads and walls​.
3. Don't write on walls and currency notes​.
4. Don't abuse and insult others​, rather, be patient, tolerant and controlled.
5. Save water and electricity​.
6. Plant a tree​.
7. Obey traffic rules.
8. Honour and take care of ur parents and grandparents, take their blessings and always respect them​.
9. Respect women​.
10. Give way to ambulances​ and other emergency vehicles.
11. Treat your neighbour in the way you would want to be treated.
12. Do not seek for corners to cut in anything you do.
13. Be intentional in honesty & integrity.
14. Fear God in a way that is demonstrated in your lifestyle.
15. Respect every individual, regardless of race, religion, tribe or status, we are all Gods creations.
16. Always seek to be part of the solution and not the problem.
17. Grab every opportunity to be kind and helpful.
18. Be conscious of setting a good example for younger or junior ones.
19. Be content and grateful for what you have more than lamenting over what you lack.
20. Be proud of being a Zimbabwean 🇿🇼by focusing on the positives and acknowledging that God does not make mistakes.
*We need to change ourselves and not the country. Once we change ourselves the country will automatically change*
If we want our children to live in a clean, safe and prosperous environment, then pledge to follow these pointers in your everyday life.​
No one person or leader can change the country alone; it's you and I who can change our beloved nation, by changing ourselves.
Kindly forward this important message to every friend​ or group​ so that it reaches every citizen of Zimbabwe
🇿🇼🇿🇼🇿🇼🇿🇼🇿🇼🇿🇼🇿🇼
