Thomas Mapfumo at it again with new song


Thomas 'Mukanya' Mapfumo
“Yave sarudzo muZimbabwe, kwemakore magani, chauya chauya vakomana, gore rino tinopedzerana,” these are some of the lyrics of the latest song by Thomas ‘Mukanya’ Mapfumo.

In English it means, “It is time for elections, for how long, we don’t care of the consequences, this year, we’re prepared,” chants the exiled decorated Chimurenga Music proponent Mapfumo.

For the past 14 years, Mapfumo was living in USA safeguarding his life because of the politically charged messages in his music.

The general sentiment had been that Mapfumo would not come back into the country as he feared for his life because.

Eyebrows were raised when Mapfumo’s mother passed away in 2008 and he failed to pitch up for the funeral, burial or memorial service. He did the same for his other close relatives that passed on during the period.

In his latest interview briefing journalists at Crown Plaza, he said young people should not be afraid to express themselves whenever their rights are infringed. They should talk freely, loudly and fervently if there is poor service delivery from the Government.

However, Mukanya stated that his failure to come back home was strictly political. He is slated to perform at the Glamis Arena on April 28 at a homecoming gig dubbed “Welcome Back-Big Bira”.
