PowerFM’s Tinashe Chiname this morning assumed presidential spokesperson George Charamba’s role, firing a broadside at US-based chimurenga music maestro Thomas Mapfumo for seeking to personally engage President Robert Mugabe over the high level of piracy in Zimbabwe.
Mukanya, as Mapfumo is known to his legion of fans, decried how music is being sold for a dollar and urged authorities to do more and curb piracy.
“Ndekupi kwawakamboonawo music inotengeswa dhora?”(Where have you ever seen music being sold for a dollar?), he was quoted as saying during an interview with a journalist earlier this week.
Playing Mapfumo’s classic “Madhebhura” on his Power Weekend Breakfast with Shef Gulaz show at 0843hrs (Zim time) Chiname went on to suggest that Mugabe can only engage Zimbabweans within the country, and not those in the diaspora.
“How can the President speak with you when you are that far? He has no time for those outside the country, and speaks with people who are in Zimbabwe…,” said Chiname.
PowerFM radio station falls under the ZBC.
