If you were having coffee with me I would as usual be glad for you to visit, make yourself at home, put your feet up or not. Whats been happening?
If you were having coffee with me, I would tell you that have been having brainstorm sessions and I am super excited about what we have brewing, just keep your fingers crossed as each day I get a step closer to a dream.
If you were having coffee with me, I would tell you that even though a second wave of Covid is creeping on us, with cases on the rise and there’s talk of another lockdown or localised lockdown for hotspot neighbourhoods, people don’t seem to be really paying attention to covid protocols… yeah and me included.
If you were having coffee with me, I would tell you about a message from my mum explaining how the WiFi package that should have lasted a month was depleted in a month…
Ginimbi was a multi-millionaire socialite businessman who died a week ago in a fiery Rolls Royce crash which claimed the lives of three others. The internet went crazy over the late businessman’s flamboyant lifestyle with people speculating on the origin of his wealth and some concluding that he must have been in a cult or practised some get-rich rituals….
He lived life large and his end-off was equally larger than life with business grinding to a halt in the streets of Harare as his body was taken to the final resting place at his mansion and an all white farewell on Friday the 13th followed by burial on Saturday which was live streamed… one can understand how internet where the internet went
Meanwhile on the Rolls Royce Facebook page people were commenting on how their car had killed our tycoon, the car crashed into a Honda fit before veering off the road, crashing into a tree and catching fire. Rolls Royce is yet to give a statement but people clamouring for the guys to investigate the fatal accident.
People also took to the Honda Facebook page to praise Honda…
If you were having coffee with me, I would tell you how some people complaining how so much spotlight was being put on a dead person, people following around the dead, instead of focusing on important matters like for example the case of Hopewell Chin’ono a journalist who is currently behind bars over a tweet and charges to obstruct to justice. His bail has been denied on the grounds that he had a propensity to commit offences and hence should be kept detained in prison.
Hopewell is also set to stand trial on charges of inciting people to revolt against the president’s administration during anti-corruption protests that had been called for on 31 July earlier in the year.
If you were having coffee with me, I would tell you that strange things happen in November neither should important events be done during that month.. The coup that is not a coup which resulted in Mugabe retiring from power around this time 3 years ago and some say that the current situation in Zimbabwe is part of the November curse coming back to haunt us.. to read more about November check out my last post… there’s something about November.
If you were having coffee with me, I would tell you how my niece dreads going to school because each morning their teacher asks them what their parents intend to do with the fact that they take 2 taxis to get to work and teacher’s salary is not enough, then makes those students whose parents have paid an “appreciation” fee sit at the front for preferential learning treatment while those who haven’t are relegated to the back of the class… I told her to tell the teacher that Uncle B says that is an issue they must raise with their employer the government..
And meanwhile in real-life drama of Malawian pastor family The Bushiris whose escapades read wilder than a script from the TV series Greenleaf who were out on bail on charges of corruption in South Africa, pulled a miracle escape from the country and then held a press conference revealing they had feared for their lives which is why they fled South Africa and are now in Malawi.
Being holders of Malawian diplomatic passports the legal entanglement that will follow will probably end up in an examination for international law students. Followers of Bushiri’s church have an almost cultic fanaticismand blind to any faults of the Bushiris.
If you were having coffee with me I would tell that this year’s winner of the Voice UK 2020 Blessing Annatoria Chitapa is from Zimbabwe… woo hoo!!!
So whats going on in your neck of the woods?
