Zanu (PF) misinterpreting me: Makoni

steve_makoniHARARE - Veteran guitarist and solo musician Steve Makoni (Pictured) said his music was being misinterpreted by Zanu (PF) politicians who used it to suit their own political aspirations.

Makoni’s song, Mambo (King), which stresses a King should not be crowned by strangers – is played every 30 minutes on Zanu (PF) controlled ZBC radio stations.

I am a musician who sings for a cross section of Zimbabweans, Makoni said. If there is someone politicising the songs, he/she is doing it to suit certain political ambitions. In fact I wrote that song to dissuade some government officials from interfering with the choice of traditional chiefs.

A Radio Zimbabwe presenter, who requested not to be named, said: “Everyone is being ordered to play the song regularly in line with the studio policies of promoting Zanu (PF) propaganda.
