Chronicles of a Street Preacher   His voice rose shrilly and hoarsely, piecing the sombre winter afternoon like a sharp knife. The voice would rage on, in a way matching the screeching of tyres and the loud shouting of omnibus touts…

Zviroto Gets A Job

The letter from Uncle Tobias came exactly a month after he had returned to Umtali from the village, taking the new red Volkswagen back with him. Zviroto was just closing the cattle kraal, using horizontal wooden poles when little Ruru rushed with the good news, a radiant smile defining her face. It had been a busy day indeed. It had rained all day and all his clothes were drenched to the skin. Because of the rains, the cattle had also given big problems. Especially Charubeki.

A while later whilst seated on the dung painted kitchen bench, he never stopped to think what he will achieve as a Fort Victoria City Council cleaner.

The Intersection

the intersection

The Intersection The early evening wind blew softly. As daylight faded into night, urban sounds could be heard quite clearly now as most people negotiated their way home. Others however, would be still at work. The night lights had suddenly came alive now, signalling motorists. At one time or the other, one would hear the screeching of tires. Night life has always fascinated me. Being an amateur photographer, I have always wondered how the best night photographers in the world have brought the night alive. As I looked around, gazing at nothing in particular and with my Canon camera sitting, like a close friend on the seat besides me, I found myself  interested in everything around me, particularly putting it on camera For those lost where exactly this photo was taken, it is at corner Julius Nyerere & Samora Machel, looking towards Sam Nunjoma. There, you got it, you thought you were stupid not to remember the place right? A thought just suddenly crossed my mind how this intersection would look like on photo. Taking out my Canon camera, I experimented with various settings. But I think I got it. It may not be perfect but its close. Uuum, what do you think?
