The young theatre performers, who showcased their talents at the commemorative show, thoroughly entertained the audience, including Jorum Gumbo and Vice President Emmerson Munangagwa.

Although over eight different dance groups, representing all districts in the Midlands province gave their best. But Sunduza outshone them all, judging from the audience’s wild response. Dressed in distinctly different traditional attire, the dance troupe performed their polished Gumboot dances and Accapella (Imbube) songs.

The talented youngsters’ (four men and one woman) show featured elaborate costumes, plumes, exciting music, lasers and sound effects.

Speaking on the sidelines of the event Sunduza Director Charles Banda said he was delighted to be part of the event Celebrating Road Safety Day through rich arts and diverse culture.

“Road accidents cost many lives. Whith such events I am sure that Zimbabwean drivers and people in general will have the capability to avoid unnecessary road accidents, mainly caused by human error,” Banda said.

“It was a spectacular show,” said the Provincial Sport Arts and Culture officer Anele Gumbochuma, adding that he would have loved to see more local artists accommodated in such programmes.
