Zambezi News episodes 1 & 2 were successfully launched in July at a packed Red Bar where two hundred people cheered on the comical show. Zambezi News is the breakthrough new comedy series that has had audiences in Zimbabwe and abroad in stitches since its launch in late 2011. Irreverent, sarcastic and downright hilarious this is the news as you’ve always wanted it to be presented. Created by two of the country’s pioneering creative minds, Comrade Fatso and Outspoken, Zambezi News hilariously deals with everything from race to culture and from politics to sport. This brand new season will feature the comical news presenters Mandape Mandape (Outspoken), Jerome Weathers (Comrade Fatso) and Kudzaishe Mushayahembe (Michael Kudakwashe) presenting live in studio while also cutting away to ludicrous reports, spoof music videos and cheeky adverts. People can already get a taste of Zambezi News by visiting the Zambezi News YouTube channel and watching some trailers and clips that have been released in the build up to the launch.
The episodes will be widely distributed in Zimbabwe following the launch and those in attendance will receive complementary copies of each episode. Clips of the series are now available on the Zambezi News Youtube channel and the Zambezi News website. The entire season will soon appear on regional and continental satellite television. Zambezi News is a production of Magamba Network.
