1) Editorial

A Gentle Sunday Bulawayo Tour

It is Sunday and the economic profile of Bulawayo has changed rather a lot over the years.

Sundays used to be quiet in the CBD, a few desultory window shoppers, looking at the excellent Meikles, Sanders and Haddon and Sly windows, some folk in the park, some at the movie houses, some at the Royal Sunflower in Grey Street which was possibly the one and only fast food outlet apart from the Fritz Pie carts!!

Nowadays the CBD is buzzing on Sundays !!

The Bend- Down Bazaar is hectic, droves of Sunday shoppers, mountains of assorted clothes , a plethora of coloured gazebos and umbrellas, as well as the accompanying vendors who festoon such an occasion.

The food outlets are humming, the Chicken Inns, Bakers Inns, Pizza Inns, somehow even in a shrinking economy, folk manage to find money for comfort food.

Of course the supermarkets are a hurly burly of activity on a Sunday morning, the Food Lovers Market at Bradfield, the Bonsa Spars in Parklands and Hillside and good old Solomons in Fife Street and Fourth Avenue. Solomons Supermarket now opens on the weekend and until 8 o'clock every weekday, which makes it an ideal shopping spot for after hours shoppers on their way home.

But there is a giant informal sector that thrives on a Sunday - for example the car spare outlets, buy your new spark plugs, windscreen wipers, fuel injection filters, you name it and then some talented entrepreneur will fit it for you then and there in the middle of the street!! The whole road becomes a giant garage !

And the building suppliers are doing a roaring trade, DIY shoppers, home builders, handymen can buy anything they want up there in Fort, Chitepo or Lobengula from river sand to ladders to tools.

I have my favorite hardware shop - Home and Hardware on 12th Avenue next to Twizzels, and I just love the new Spar at Parklands, its just around the corner, saves me having to pack a picnic basket to travel all that way to Hillside Spar!!

Fazaks too is a useful stop on the Esigodini Road, as they are probably one of the least expensive stores in Bulawayo and their little coffee shop is very friendly too.

Yes the old Bulawayo profile has long gone, no more the one stop shops like Meikles and Railway Co-op, no more elegant and dignified menswear shopping at McCullogh and Bothwell, no more exclusive dresses at Morrisons and Zippers.

I will always remember my sixth form leavers dance dress, Granny died and left me a whole hundred pounds. I was a millionaire and able to purchase the dress of my dreams. A little chiffon number, cream with giant chocolate colored roses, a drape at the front, nipped at the waist and fully lined !!! Such elegance never to be surpassed again sigh.....

Of course we have loads and loads of lovely eating out and coffee places in Bulawayo!! My favorite cappuccino is still at Indaba, which also has a divine new bookshop. But there is also the coffee shop upstairs at Bradfield above Headlines Hairstylists, Claire's coffee shop on Townsend Road, River Cafe on 12th Ave close to Lionel's La Piazza.

Coffee is still good at the Art Gallery, the Bulawayo Club and at the Nesbitt Castle, and of course Bev's delicious place at Zonke-Iziwe where all things coffee and chocolate are a must!!

Last but not least I believe there is Nespresso Coffee available at the Bulawayo Theatre together with a selection of wraps and paninis.



2) Notices and Events

IMPORTANT VOTER INFORMATION

An Important notice for people born in Zimbabwe whose parents were citizens of any SADC country at the time of their birth, and for all this time been denied the opportunity to vote on the grounds that they are "Aliens".

This applies to all Zimbabweans whose parents in most cases originated from neighboring countries such as Malawi, Zambia, Mozambique, Namibia, Botswana or South Africa, you may now proceed to swap your IDs at the Office of the Registrar General and obtain one with a "C" instead of an "A".

This means that you may now enjoy all other rights including the right to vote same as any other citizen. This process of regularizing your ID's is being done for free during this period of preparing for Elections.

All previously disadvantaged individuals should take this opportunity and regularize their identity documents. Those who lost their IDs or Birth certificates can equally go and have them replaced for free during this period; I equally urge those who have managed to see this information to share with other colleagues who might not be able to see it in time. In case of any difficulties at the Office of the Registrar General please consult your local MP or Ward Councilor who must stand ready to assist you.

This comes about as a result of sections 36 and 43(2) of the new constitution - the latter says everyone born in Zim prior to the "effective date" - ie the date of the new constitution one of whose parents was a SADC citizen and who is resident in Zim at the time of the new Constitution (important qualification because those who are overseas now will not qualify) are entitled to citizenship.

FLAGSHIP ENTERPRISES

First impressions are vital.

At the office, on the telephone, in the shop front.

We can teach your staff just how important it is to be customer friendly. Zimbabwe is set to go forward, so make sure your staff is groomed immaculately in both appearance and conduct. It takes just a quick glance, maybe three seconds, for someone to evaluate you when you meet for the first time. In this short time, the other person forms an opinion about you and your company based on your appearance, your body language, your demeanor, your mannerisms, and how you are dressed.
Your staff reflects your business ethic and ability.
Make sure your personnel are trained to be the best and to offer the best service. Our service is vibrant, creative, enigmatic and vital to the growth of your business.

'If anything distinguishes poetry from prose it's music,' says Bulawayo poet, John Eppel. Fittingly, the Zimbabwe Academy of Music will host a series of poetry discussions led by the veteran author, winner of the Ingrid Jonker Prize for Poetry, who has selected ten transcendently 'musical' poems to explore with other enthusiasts in a friendly and communicative forum.

There is a suggested donation of 1 or 2 dollars per session to cover costs. Participants are asked to read the relevant poem beforehand. Organiser Drew Shaw, Lecturer at NUST, will moderate discussions. All are welcome!

WAGNER: A FILM BY TONY PALMER
Thursdays 9, 16, 23 & 30 May
Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m.
Wagner was born 200 years ago on 22 May 1813 and , filmed in 200 locations throughout Europe, many where the actual historical events took place, this epic film stars Richard Burton in his last major role. Richard Burton said that Wagner was the role he was born to play and his performance reminds us what a great actor he was. This is a fitting tribute to his - and to Wagner's - genius and a fascinating story in its own right even if you don't much care for Wagner's music! Admission: $3.00 [free to film members]

THE RING WITHOUT WORDS & SMETANA Ma VLAST
Friday 10 May in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
The Prague Spring Festival always begins on 12 May with a performance of Smetana's Ma Vlast [My Country]. The work is a daunting challenge even for seasoned professional orchestras, but two years ago to celebrate the bicentenary of the foundation of the Prague Conservatoire, the orchestra was made up of 130 conservatoire students - five harps and the rest to match! - and they produced a performance that was "above all, imbued with exceptional enthusiasm and energy". Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members] Supper available during the interval

ROSSINI: L'ITALIANA IN ALGERI
Friday 17 May in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
L'Italiana in Algeri was first performed 200 years ago on 22 May 1813 when Rossini was just 21 but it represents him at his very best. Outrageous colours and incessant movement are the hallmarks of this production from the Opera National de Paris by renowned opera stage director Andrei Serban. The excellent cast of singer-actors is led by Jennifer Larmore, who is a clever, beautiful, impetuous Isabella...

WONDRBAGS FOR SALE
A Wonderbag is an insulated bag in which people can cook anything from meaty stews, vegetable curries to simple rice and soups. Kick start the cooking process by bringing your food to boiling temperature then quickly transfer the pot to the Wonderbag. The insulating properties of the bag allow food that has been brought to the boil to finish cooking in the bag without the use of additional energy at safe cooking temperatures for hours. Some of the benefits of the Wonderbag;
It can reduce a family's fuel usage up to 50%, saving money. It reduces toxic fumes meaning; less respiratory problems and other diseases particularly in children. It reduces accidents in the kitchen, because stoves are used less. It reduces time spent cooking food, giving more time for other activities. It saves water as the pot is insulated at a fairly constant temperature, less evaporation occurs, so less water is needed. It saves foods as less is burned therefore less is thrown away. Great for self catering lodges, campers, both rural and urban homes, in fact it's great for any cook.
