Dennis Tapfuma, founder of Fourth World Music says: “Seven years ago, one of Africa’s most developed countries began a fateful journey – one that would lead to an economic spiral that now sees it having the world’s highest inflation rate, human rights abuses and poignant levels of poverty. The Zimbabwean catastrophe is no secret. Ill-conceived land reforms and economic mismanagement have created an urgent humanitarian crisis.
“We were motivated to do this event by the fact that there are nearly a million Zimbabweans living in the United Kingdom. Most of, whom will have been emotionally affected by the crisis, and are in a position to do something to help charities working with vulnerable people in Zimbabwe.” – Tickets cost £10.00 available from Ticketweb.
