Mureza...In the Shadow of the Flag

eBook (PDF), 35 Pages
(2 Ratings)
Price: $4.31
"Mureza is a brutal, yet searingly honest look inside the mind and heart of an ordinary Zimbabwean today; be it the guilt-ridden economic refugee slaving away in some dirty job in a corner of the world somewhere, the Shebeen Queen battling with the morality of the way she has to earn her living, or the sweating priest of the local ‘vapostori’ church, dancing the night away in the religious dances of desperation… It is the voice of the bleeding heart of a broken nation, a once proud people reduced to scavenging the conference halls of the Diaspora, desperately begging for the world’s attention, sympathy and understanding; and yet somewhere in the poems, the reader can still hear the silent voices of hope, determination, tenacity and promises of another day…."

    "Mureza... in the Shadow of the Flag" I am a Zimbabwean in the Diaspora, and this little book had me in tears ... It tells the story of my country, with no holds barred; of Sheebeen Queens and Vapostori, of farm invasions, and of working in the UK, of the joys of sending money home to those left behind... Mr Ncube will go far in this path, i cannot wait for him to release another Anthology.

    "Mureza... in the Shadow of the Flag" Excellent work. The Writer has touched the soul of the Nation, next time expand and talk to us about your innermost feelings; now that you are aware of the whole picture, get inside yourself and talk to us. The tragedy of Zimbabwe is beyond words, but if you can put it out there this way, we are going to support you. Again, let me say to you, good work.
