1) Editorial

Arachnophobia

"Good Morning Harry" I said cheerily as I stepped into the shower. Harry is our resident wall spider and he has a wife called Harriet. Now there have been generations of Harrys and Harriets in our home and they are treasured guests as they are excellent mosquito catchers.

The Wall Spider (family Selenopidae) has always been welcome in our home, however the Rain Spider, the Baboon Spider, The Harare Ferraris and in fact all other spiders, are not welcome!!

As I turned on the shower it was only then that I observed that Harry was probably a little closer than he should be to the jet of water, but he seemed able to edge away from the spray so I continued my ablutions, all the while keeping a watchful eye on him.

Uh oh, he began to slip on the wet tiles and was frantically scrambling away from the droplets, but then began a slow dismal downward descent. I tried to shush him upwards with the bar of soap, but his little arachnid actions were beginning to disturb me a little.

Now I am fond of Harry in an anthropomorphic sort of way but certainly did not feel like sharing the confines of the slippery shower floor with him !!

A couple of his legs still had a bit of traction but gradually all eight of them succumbed to gravity and he slid slowly down the wall looking very glum.

In a real panic I turned off the water but too late, there was quite a bit of water on the shower floor, and I visualized him being swept towards the plug in a mini tsunami.

Oh Belzebuth !! I rapidly considered poor Harriet and all the baby Harrys I had seen recently.

Although afraid of crushing him, I swung round to grab a facecloth to stop his fall, but in the confines of the shower I cracked my head on the soap rack and the soap flew out scaring poor Harry even more.

Ah ha . I then noticed HeeHoo's shaving foam, grabbed it and tried to make a giant frothy dyke around the plughole in an effort to prevent Harry's demise.

Poor Harry, the miniature tidal wave swept him towards the plug hole but the foam dyke held its ground valiantly thanks to Mr Gillette, but alas Harry's spindly legs embedded themselves firmly in the foam. I visioned him drowning a white foamy death and my hollers for help from HeeHoo were becoming octosyllabic but he heeded me not !! (There are various degrees of selective hearing in every marriage !)

There was no other way except for true devotion to the arachnid cause, and I held out my shaking hand and allowed my ghostly octavalent friend to clamber clumsily along my finger.

Expecting those foam covered mandibles to sink into my flesh at any moment, feeling chicken hearted and cowed by a soaking wet, half drowned arthropod, I made my way gingerly out of the shower and placed him gently put him on the edge of the bath to dry.

Man has no greater love for fellow creature trust me, it was a labour of spidery love that I hope never ever to have to repeat !!

It is one of Petipa's least known but most exotic ballets and contains some of his most spectacular choreography, done full justice in this recording from the Kirov Ballet made in 1989. "The Dream", by contrast, is one of Sir Frederick Ashton's best-loved ballets, created for the Shakespeare quatercentenary in 1964 and shown here in a production by the American Ballet Theater with Alexandra Ferri as Titania.

Thursday 21 April in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.30 p.m.
Anthony Quinn stars in Barabbas, the fictional story of the man released by the people of Jerusalem in preference to Jesus.

Admission: $3.00 [free to film subscribers]
FILM: THE QUEEN
Thursday 28 April in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.30 p.m.
The celebrated film is an engrossing, intimate and intelligently witty portrait of the monarchy's darkest days in the week following the death of Princess Diana. "Helen Mirren as the Queen is a sensation" (The Times). Admission: $3.00 [free to film subscribers]
DONIZETTI: MARY STUART
Friday 29 April in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m. - with supper interval.
Donizetti's opera offers a great singing-actress tremendous opportunities, especially in the fictitious encounter with her persecutor, Elizabeth I, when royal pride, defiance and finally fury are her undoing, whilst the scenes leading to her execution embrace optimism, regret, love, remorse and despair. Dame Janet Baker's portrayal was regarded as one of the pinnacles of her career, and she chose the role for her farewell to the London operatic stage in 1982 when this recording was made. Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members]

Rosa York
The York, Birchall, Smith and Leanders families mourn the passing of a grand old lady, Rosa York, our mother, grandmother and great-grandmother . While we respect the need for her to shed her weary body, her wise counsel, wily wit and sparkle that kept us laughing all her days, will be sorely missed.

The funeral service for Rosa Elizabeth York will be held at the Church of Ascension in Leander Avenue, Hillside at 2.30 on Thursday 14 April 2011.
Friends kindly accept this intimation.

Granny Rosa has died.
On Friday morning, in Bulawayo a legend passed away.
Rosa Elizabeth York (nee Rosenfels) was born on Lydeard Farm, Marula on 10th October 1923, the first born of nine children to pioneer Sigmund Julius Rosenfels (born in the Bulawayo lager in 1896) and 1909 settler Evelyn Lois Rosenfels (nee Shone).
Rosa married well known Matabeleland cattle rancher Eric Rupert York - twice winner of the coveted "Thousand Guinea Gold Trophy". They were married for 38 years and brought 5 children into the wonderful farming world at Marula and Figtree in Southern Matabeleland.
Rosa was an extremely talented needlewoman with a special talent in embroidery, she described herself as ' painting with a needle'. Rosa was chairlady, committee member, and member of the Home Industries Section of the Bulawayo Agricultural Society for many years.
The Rosenfels / York / Mann / Birchall / Smythe / Viljoen / Smith / Shone / Greeff families formed an entire community on the edge of the fertile Matopos Hills where the community once stretched into many dozens of parents, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Farewell to Rosa - sadly the end of an era but surely the beginning of a new one.
"When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of human civilization." --Daniel Webster

For those of you who have not heard, Mike Campbell passed away yesterday. Mike and his family were featured in the film 'Mugabe and the White African'. He never fully recovered from the injuries he sustained from the beating he received from Mugabe's thugs upon his return from the SADC Tribunal. Our thoughts go out to the family.
Sean

MIKE CAMPBELL
Mike Campbell died peacefully on the afternoon of Wednesday 6 April after nearly 3 years fighting for his health. He died surrounded by his family and at peace with God and with man.
He will be remembered for his courageous fight for justice for all in Zimbabwe.
His funeral will be held on De Rus farm in Chegutu at 11 am on Saturday 9 April. Can friends please bring a plate of snacks.
Contact: freeth@bsatt.com

MIKE CAMPBELL - Mt Carmel Farm, Chegutu
The JAG Team with deep regret bids farewell to an outstanding and principled member of our beleaguered farming community. Mike was at the very forefront of the battle for Justice in Zimbabwe and was a courageous example of fine leadership and achievement to us all.
He has left behind a lasting legacy for all Zimbabweans in the form of his benchmark judgment achieved out of the SADC Tribunal, which will in time benefit all Zimbabweans, not just farmers.
The JAG Team wishes to express its sincere condolences to the Campbell and Freeth families. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this tragic time.
Mike we know has gone to meet his Maker with all his principles intact and his head held high. Rest in Eternal Peace, Mike.
"No greater sacrifice can a man make than to lay down his life for his friends."

ROSES TO THE SPCA STAFF
I would like to draw public attention to the fact that all SPCA staff work 7 days a week, including ALL PUBLIC HOLIDAYS !! Not many people would work those awful hours, and what a stressful, heart rending job.
From the very hard working Kennel Hands, Driver, Receptionist and Vet, to the Inspectors who are incredibly skilled in the way they manage to catch petrified animals who are running, lost, scared, & often traumatised. If you've ever tried it, you'll know its virtually impossible. To the very dedicated Manager Berry who works tirelessly, besides her many other responsibilities, to find homes for the many homeless. She is undoubtedly the heart of SPCA.
They all work endlessly trying to educate people on animal care and to stop cruelty and neglect. These are special people - their compassion, care and dedication, not to mention the hours they all work, really need to be commended. You will notice too that they attend to every reported case. Please give the SPCA all your support at all times - we certainly owe them and need them.
You can also help by reporting animals you see at the exact time & location you see them, you have no idea how this saves time and fuel searching for animals who move so quickly when scared and lost.

For anyone interested the SPCA AGM is on Wednesday 13th April at the Lions Club Hall, near the Hillside police station, at 5 for 5.30
Lastly, please don't forget the "SPCA Scruffs Day" on 29 May - Its always a great day out and .....they need you there !

LOST BLACK MALE LABRADOR. REWARD OFFERED IF FOUND
The above Labrador, which goes by the name of Blackie, went missing on Saturday 9th of March in Paddonhurst. We have heard of the SPCA finding people selling dogs at the supermarkets, and having taken such away from the sellers. We would be glad if anybody could give us feed back on Blackie, who has been with us for 10 years. We suspect that someone has closed him in in their yard, as he very well knows his way home if free. A reward is offered if we can get him back alive.
Please phone Alan at 203437

Dear Member
ZIMBABWE INTERNATIONAL TRADE FAIR this year runs from 3rd to 7 May. A'Sambeni travel fair in Hall 3 and Ultim8 Home expo will be running concurrently with ZITF. The expo features the latest fixtures, fittings and furnishing for home improvements. Durban, which is our sister city, will have a small exhibition in the Bulawayo City Council Pavilion, which is next to the Main hall, and representatives from their City Council will be on hand to answer questions in business news, tourism, etc. We believe that all the hotels and many of the guest lodges are already fully booked for the period, which is good for Bulawayo.
SOLENTA AVIATION SERVICES, which is based in Harare, will be flying between Harare and Bulawayo during the week of ZITF. It is hoped that when a larger airline is obtained Solenta will be making regular flights between Harare and Bulawayo. In the meantime, they fly to Kariba, the various lodges in the area and Mana Pools, and also have flights from Harare, to Victoria Falls and Hwange. For further information contact your travel agent or Kirsty Alexander on 077 3 266 997.
Please be advised that with effect from the 1st April, the Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe has introduced an additional Aviation Infrastructural Development levy of $10 for passengers departing on domestic flights and $30 for international departing passengers. This cost will be added to the ticket.

The train to Victoria Falls has recently started running every night departing at 7.00 p.m and arriving at the Falls at 8:30 a.m. For your information, there is a train service between Gweru and Masvingo every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

CAIRNS WINES AND FOODS have brought out an extra fine golden brown special brandy they are calling Hard Stone. Cairns advise that it is best served on the rocks. As a point of interest, their Willard's Corn Flakes contain very little salt and sugar, unlike their South Africa counterparts, the local cereals is therefore much healthier for you.
SOLOMON'S SUPERMARKET in Fife St/4th Ave, accept soiled notes in any condition, as well as Euro and Pound coins. They have many in-store promotions and give-aways as well as free suckers for all children.
TENDELE ARTS & CRAFTS now have a second outlet, apart from Pembroke Place, and that is in 12th Ave in the house which also has the River Caf . They stock a wide range of different arts & crafts.
JABULANI SAFARIS, about one and half drive from Bulawayo near Shangani, is an ideal place for a weekend getaway. There are interesting walks and mountain bike rides to view the wealth of amazing fauna and flora. Activities also include swimming, fishing, game drives and drives to the nearby Nalatale Ruins. The camp has 8 ensuite chalets and can cater for school and adult groups. Phone Richard or Win Blackburn on 077 5 100 085.
THE DRUMS OF PEACE which have been received enthusiastically by all who have heard them, perform at different venues on the eve of the full moon every month. Full moon drumming will take place at Stillhaven, 18 Lawley Road, on 16th April at 5:30p.m. The drumming in May will be held in the Matopos.
EATERIES
THE N1 RESTAURANT AND TAKEAWAYS on the ground floor of the N1 Hotel, in 114 Main St, offers a wide range of pies, burgers, rolls as well as the standard main course and traditional dishes. The restaurant also offers a delivery service to the CBD and industrial sites.
MUSKETEERS LODGE on 42 Annabel Drive, Eloana, offers a special lunch on the first Sunday of every month. Rudy Gouma provides the musical entertainment to make a really enjoyable fun day. Tel 246343 for bookings. THE CATTLEMAN STEAKHOUSE also has a special Sunday lunch, but you need to get there by 12 p.m. There are other restaurants that open on Sundays until 9p.m. Call Bulawayo Publicity Association on 60867/72969 for details.
The welcome news is that Zimbabweans who attended the recent ITB Travel Fair in Berlin, said that a great deal of interest was shown in Zimbabwe products and that the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority stand was busy the whole time with international agents, tour companies and wholesalers seeking information on the country.
The Association is trying to spruce up its offices and Baobab Industries through Mr Sinclair and Mr Barlow have assisted by donating 3 teak chairs and a table which have improved the appearance of the reception office greatly. As a matter of interest Baobab Industries are happy to undertake tours of the factory. Grateful thanks also to Fawcett Security Operations for their monthly donation of fuel and Antelope Game Park for their additional monthly subscription. The Association values the support of all its members without whom it could not continue its work on behalf of the city and community as a whole.
Thank you so much.

The Harare Files
Friday 29 April, 10-11 am, $6, The Standard Theatre
Saturday 30 April, 5-6 pm, $6, The Standard Theatre
It's no secret that Harare has been a hard city in which to live over the last decade. This performance takes seven true stories of seven ordinary people caught up in extraordinary events: hyperinflation, hunger, migration, violence and collapse. The subject is serious, the show is not. It is about how ordinary people survived extraordinary events; it is a story of victory and personal achievement, not defeat. Sometimes the biggest victory is being able to say, "I survived it. I'm still here." The Harare Files salutes the people of Harare. They're still standing. This one man piece is narrated and acted by Tonderai Munyebvu and directed by Sarah Norman.

His shows introduce a whole new way of enjoying the pleasures and art of eating, listening to music and travelling. All senses are summoned, sight, taste, smell, touch, hearing, and every word has a counterpoint in images. Every sound coming from the kitchen becomes music, which inspires the melodies. The cooking images depict the creation of the dishes - eat before viewing the show, lest you faint from hunger!

The HIFA 2011 Spoken Word programme provides a platform for engagement, to stimulate dialogue through the celebration of African expression, with practitioners from across Africa, from Malawi, Botswana, South Africa, Kenya, Ghana and Zimbabwe and a guest artist from Denmark. Saturday is a special dedication to the late great Zimbabwean poet, Julius Sekai Chingono. Each day the programme focuses on a different theme, featuring different languages, styles, rhythms and patterns, poetry, prose, chants and soulful music. Each performer has the liberty to interpret the themes in their own way - the hallmark of of free expression.
The artists are:
Ngwatilo Mawiyoo from Kenya, Quaye Kojo - Sir Black - from Ghana, Pitika Ntuli and Ewok, both from South Africa, Q. Malewezi from Malawi, T J Dema from Botswana, Morten S ndergaard from Denmark, and our own Daniel Mandishona, Valerie Tagwira, Nevanji Madanhire, Mgcini Nyoni, Bhekusa Moyo, Thanda Richardson, Blackheat deShanti, Linda Gabriel, Aura, Upmost, Mbizo Chirasha, and as a special guest, Outspoken.

Ngwatilo Mawiyoo
A keen observer and devoted student of the written word, Ngwatilo Mawiyoo's first book of poems, Blue Mothertongue, published last year, is a collection set in Nairobi and the African diaspora. Ngwatilo has achieved serious acclaim and has been dubbed "a priest of the art of performed poetry". In 2010, she performed here in Zimbabwe and in Malawi on a tour that formed part of the 14th 2010 Poetry Africa Festival held in South Africa, run by the Centre for Creative Arts at the University of KwaZulu-Natal.
Qabaniso 'Q' Malewezi
Qabaniso Malewezi, also known as Q, set off on his creative journey in theatre and music in high school. He went on to study performing arts at the prestigious Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA) whose patron is Sir Paul McCartney, and later at the Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM) in London. Though the focus of his training was primarily music, Q's appreciation of the spoken word led to his own experimentation with poetry writing.
Daniel Mandishona
Daniel Mandishona was brought up by his maternal grandparents in Mbare. Expelled from Goromonzi Secondary School for what the headmaster called 'habitual truancy', he moved to London. He first studied Graphic Design and then Architecture at the Bartlett School, University College London and began writing in 1982 after reading Dambudzo Marechera's House of Hunger. His first short story, A Wasted Land was published in Contemporary African Short Stories (Heinemann, 1992).
Bekumusa Moyo
This poet went to study at Nkulumane High School where he discovered the great talent of poetry in him. In 2006, he won the Power In the Voice Poetry Competition and was the country's representative to the International Festival in 2008. Numerous poems of his have been published in the Sunday News Poetry Corner and other Publications. He is a performing poet too, with one album titled, Moments of Madness under his belt.
Alice 'Thanda' Richardson
Alice 'Thanda' Richardson is an explosive young vocalist on the local Zimbabwe music scene, known for her passion and energy for dancehall reggae and ragga - what she calls "a fusion for the youth of the 21st Century". In 2009, she performed in Harare and Denmark with hip hop group, Bikstok Rogsystem, and with youth festival Umoja. Thanda composes her own songs and is working on her debut album, Give Thanks And Praise, which features Only Jah, Jah He Knows - already an anthem among her fans.
Mbizo Chirasha
Mbizo Chirasha was inspired by his social surroundings at a young age. As a young man, Mbizo quickly gained prominence as a performing poet and writer both in Zimbabwe and internationally. The themes of his poetry include children's rights, politics, social lives, gender issues, praise and protest, culture and African pride. With a vision of using his poetry to promote peace, healing, stability, and cultural freedom, Mbizo is a poet with commitment, talent, and a desire to perform whenever and wherever he can.
Aura
20-year-old Aura started writing poetry at the age of 12 and, as she grew older, realised poetry is not about words but about what you are saying. While at college in her second year, her father was retrenched so fees could not be paid, since then, she has been the bread winner in her family. Her poetry and music preaches about love and she regards her art as her husband. She is a regular at the Book Caf and sees in her work an opportunity to influence people, envisioning a world where artists are taken seriously and realise that we are voice that can be utilised.
Morten S ndergaard
One of a golden generation of Danish poets, Morten S ndergaard is as versatile as he is memorable. Having gained renown across Europe and the US for his organic adaptation of poetic form, his output over the last several years has been varied and remarkable. His humorous, sensory poetry is a major contribution to this art form in Northern Europe. Critics have observed in his work, a deliberate return to wide-eyed curiosity, and an observant humour.
Nevanji Madanhire
Nevanji Madanhire has lived a varied life reflecting the restlessness of growing up in an amorphous fledgling Zimbabwe. As a teenager, during the war of liberation, most of his classmates ended up fighting on either one side or the other. During the first two decades of independence he worked as a teacher, curriculum theorist, educational book publisher, public relations executive and a journalist.
Pitika Ntuli
Pitika Ntuli combines a vast store of African mythology and history, a keen awareness of the contemporary and an astonishing ability to improvise in his evocative poetry. A South African sculptor, poet, writer and academic spent 32 years of his life in exile in Swaziland and the U.K.. He has exhibited in several individual and group exhibitions in many countries in Europe and in the U.S.A., and has organised numerous international art and cultural events in Britain.

R.E.D. Property & Auctions
Chartered Surveyors
1. Cricket: Well, I was right about England going home early from the World Cup, but regrettably wrong about Sri Lanka winning, I say regrettably because I pulled Sri Lanka to win in the Mutare Club draw, apart from my prediction of their success from the very beginning. India just too strong on the day, although I had high hopes when their openers were both out (Sehwag and the mighty Tendulkar) for not very much. There would probably have been riots across the sub continent if India had lost. And when Tendulkar was dropped 4 (four!) times in the semi against Pakistan, I thought "hello, the bookies have had a word with the lads". Anyway, its back to gardening and reading now the cricket is finished. Also, keeping on tippy toes around Mrs. Redfern who stopped smoking 10 days ago. Even the dogs understand the wisdom of good, quiet behaviour around her.
2. R.E.D. Property Fairly marginal demand for property in Byo, but a few sales of SENSIBLY priced units - houses, flats and light industrial. Money in very short supply, Building Societies not lending, and Banks offering but at 22% per annum, and nothing medium to long term. As a result, Deeds of Sale/payment by installments now a preferred method of purchase but with sizable deposits and repayment terms a maximum 12 months. "But what happens to the deposit if the purchaser reneges on payment ?" I hear you ask. Well, we have a number of safeguards for the seller, including penalty rental charges, any repayment of deposit to be from the re-sale of the property, any depreciation in the value to be deducted from the repayment, etc. etc. Give it a thought.
We have plenty of properties for sale in all areas and price ranges. New listings include: - Ilanda 4 beds, etc. pool borehole, well maintained, $102 000.00 - Hillside 3 beds 2 baths, 2 lounges, sep. dining room, lovely secure acre garden with pool and borehole, double garage etc. All immaculate. $137 000.00 - Famona Detached 3 beds, lounge, sep dining room, fitted kitchen, walled garden : $65 000.00 - Kumalo B.U.T 4 beds 2 baths, large lounge, sep. dining room, fitted kitchen, pool, borehole, walled electric gate. Reduced to $150 000.00 - Matsheumhlope B.U.T 4 beds, 2 baths, 2 lounges, dining room, modern fitted kitchen. Very modern house, lush gardens, pool, borehole, double lock-up garage, 2 carports, much more - very secure. $150 000.00 (sensibly priced!)
