Joshua Nkomo's life to be commemorated in Hilbrow

Joshua Nkomo's life to be commemorated in Hilbrow

THE life of the founding member of the struggle to decolonise Zimbabwe, Dr Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo will be commemorated in Johannesburg at a belated ceremony for Zimbabweans based in South Africa.

The celebrations, which will be held under the theme: “Our Father: Our Pride”, will see people converging at the Hillbrow Theatre on Saturday to honour Dr Nkomo by celebrating his life through art.

The event is being organised by Matabeleland Entertainment News (MEN) – a media and arts organisation being run by Zimbabwean artistes based in South Africa. MEN spokesperson Mongezi Mpofu said the event would kickoff at mid-day on Saturday and would run through the evening with a number of artistes, poets and drama groups expected to perform.

“We will be celebrating the life and good works of our hero, Dr Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo from 12 midday at the Hillbrow Theatre Johannesburg. “We will celebrate his life through song, cultural dances, poetry and miming acts”.

Mpofu said they had partnered with some South African artistes who would provide entertainment during the commemorations. The artistes that will perform include South Africa’s Viviane Nkiwane, Peshy Ndlovu, Fortue Dawu, Zinjaziyamluma, Amakhosi, Abafana BakaMzilikazi, Imbizo, and Inkanyezi. Zimbabwean artistes are yet to confirm their participation.

Besides song and dance, Mpofu said there would be a series of lectures from some Zimbabwean community leaders based in South Africa – Chronicle/ZimDiaspora.
