1) Editorial

The Other Side of the River

We were most fortunate to be able to take a three day trip on the fabled Zambesi Queen on the Chobe River recently.

It was a glorious experience, not only from the luxury point of view but also to see real conservation in existence.

The Chobe River lies between Namibia and Botswana in parts and the difference between one river bank and the other was chalk and cheese.

Botswana has totally banned all hunting and has a strict no- nonsense approach to poaching, netting and fishing on its side of the river. Hence the land is lush and green and boasts wall to wall animals. Namibia is dry and overgrazed and all one sees is fishermen with nets, and cattle grazing peacefully.

On the Botswana side there is literally a giant pod of hippos ever few hundred meters, a vast herd of happy elephant ever kilometer or so and great herds of buffalo abound. We were lucky enough to have sightings of the rare Puku and Lechwe buck grazing in the marshes.

The birdlife is phenomenal, a pair of Pied Kingfisher busy on every single river rock, a pair of gentle Water Thickkees on ever bend, plus a pair of Fish Eagle on every corner and so on and so forth.

Game viewing from a boat is luxury indeed and the animals were totally unperturbed by our close proximity. The Zambesi Queen certainly knew how to make every sojourn from the Mother Ship an epic event, we were chased by hippo, we watched baboons family units cavorting happily for hours and we watched huge families of elephant playing just like humans in the water as we had never ever seen them before.

We heartily commend Botswana for its conservation practices, I like to think it is to some extent that Botsana's premiere - Sir Ian Khama, was educated in Bulawayo at one of our finest schools.

It was Mahatma Gandhi who said 'The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.' and full marks to Botswana.

But one tiny observation which I hope Sir Ian Khama could address - perhaps its domestic animals - dogs, cats, donkeys and goats, could be treated with as much respect as its wild animals?

CELEBRITY JAPANESE CHEF TO ROCK LOVERS ON VALENTINE'S DAY AT HOLIDAY INN BULAWAYO . . .

Food festivals are the flavor of the season. Food has always been a source of cultural exchange to strengthen ties between people and countries. Celebrity Japanese Chef Takayuki Minagawa arrives in the city on Valentine's Day to tickle the taste buds of lovers young and old, expressing their love for each other at the Holiday Inn Bulawayo, with his traditional and famous Japanese cuisine that is bound to be a connoisseur's delight.

For starters one could relish Tsunga & Oyster Mushroom Ohitashi (traditional Japanese salad), Bream Nanban-Zuke (deep fried bream fillet marinated in vinegar sauce and Pumpkin with Minced Chicken Prawn Anake Sauce (soft cooked pumpkin covered with a combination of thick chicken and prawn gravy). Takayuki says that his endeavor has been to give his guest traditional dishes as food lovers are getting more demanding these days. The six course dinner Miso Beef Stew, Chicken Karaage (Japanese fried chicken), Tempura (a combination of shrimps, eggplant and okra), the famous Japanese Sushi Nigiri made with Salmon & Prawns and for the vegetarian's delight Sushi Roll and the traditional Japanese Noodle in hot soup popularly know as Udon are the Chef's highly recommended delicacies to anyone who enjoys authentic Japanese food.
The lavish buffet concludes with some exotic Japanese desserts like Zenzai (Red Bean Soup), Soy Milk Fruit Jelly and Chocolates that tickles your palate and captures your appetite. Witness for the first time in Zimbabwe the 'Japanese Tea Ceremony', a Japanese cultural activity being performed by a team of Japanese girls that showcases the traditional ceremonial preparation and presentation of powdered green tea.

Just a quick note to thank you for your kind support of my novel, THE POWER AND THE FURY. The reaction has been nothing less than fantastic, with five star comments from children, parents and grandparents alike! Now I need a favour ...
Please, please, please can you or your children or your friends REVIEW it either on Amazon or on Goodreads.com (great site, if you haven't been there before!) Or both! So far there have been some wonderful reviews, but I need MORE!

As a wee token of thanks, if you purchased THE POWER AND THE FURY at Amazon, you can now download the Kindle version for FREE. (This applies to new buyers as well. *Hint*)

THE POWER AND THE FURY, for an all-too-brief moment, slipped into the Amazon top 100 books! Book two is coming along nicely. School visits are being scheduled, local newspaper articles and an excruciating bit of radio is greasing the wheels of the Eden Chronicles chariot. If you know of or have connections in media (or similar) that might 'grow the message', please let me know.
Thanks for your support. It really means the world.
With very best wishes,
James Keep spreading the word! NOTE: This is an informal newsletter to friends and family. If you would like to subscribe to my official newsletter, please click here. Email: jameserith@btinternet.com website: jameserith.com Twitter: @jameserith Facebook: jameserith-author Pinterest: jameserith

7) Bulawayo News

Bulawayo Publicity Association

Dear Member

The major fun event this month is Valentine's Day with entertainment being laid on by various clubs. The National Railways of Zimbabwe will be running two steam train tours - one on the 16th February from Bulawayo to Figtree and the other from Bulawayo to Victoria Falls on the 13th February. Contact the Public Relations Officer offices on 363522 for more details. Jazz Invitation will celebrate St Valentine's Day with a Jazz evening at the Groove Club at the Bulawayo Rainbow Hotel

Antelope Game Park is offering a Valentine's weekend with a special Valentine's dinner on the 14th February on the banks of the Vungu River and a bush finger lunch in the game park the following day. Call (054) 251913 or email: reservations@antelopepark.co.zw for bookings.

The main business event is the Zimbabwe National Chamber of Commerce Matabeleland Chapter's International Trade and Investment Conference to be held at Zimbabwe International Trade Fair on 12th and 13th February. Ambassadors from many African countries as well as representatives from international and regional financial institutions will be attending.

Whatever you may think, nothing stands still in Bulawayo. The Ascot Shopping Complex is being repainted in bright colors and looks most attractive and clean. Amongst the shops there are a chemist, bookshop with good selection of children's educational books, an Italian restaurant, butcher shop, dress shop and a shop selling a range of nightwear and underwear, as well as TM Supermarket.
Mary's Restaurant opposite the Medical Centre has been painted a happy sunshine yellow inside and outside.

The Bulawayo Club is no longer a boutique Hotel run by the Amalinda Collection Group but has reverted to being a members club. It is being repainted and refurbished and should be open by April. The Youth Hostel opposite Old Miltonians Club has sadly had to close its doors due to financial constraints and is now being run as a pre-school. Solomon's Supermarket in Fife Street is just one of the supermarkets that has been taken over by the Choppies Group, which has also taken over various Spars owned by Mr R Modi.

Main Street, as you probably all know by now, has been renamed JMN Nkomo Street where his statue proudly stands.
Jeys Marabini Ndlovu, a leading guitarist in the Jazz African music world, will be giving a concert at the Indaba Book Cafe, Corner J Tongogara Street/9th Avenue on Saturday 8th February, starting at 6p.m. The evening will include a three course meal.

Congratulations to Krishna Travel & Tours in 55 Robert Mugabe Way which, through its owner Dipti Mahdoo, has recently been awarded the Amadeus Legend Award. Amadeus is a technology company dedicated to the global travel industry. It provides the technology which keeps the travel sector moving. The award is given to travel agents who have been in many years in travel and have shown excellence in their field.

The Bulawayo Motoring Club's season will start with a drag race on February 22nd at the motor racing circuit on the Falls Road. Non-members are free to take part in any event for a small charge and this should appeal to all those adventure lovers hooked on high adrenaline sports!

The Bulawayo Publicity Association has been informed by the Public Relations Office department of the Bulawayo City Council that Councils Housing and Community Service department undertakes township tours.

The Bulawayo Publicity Association wishes to thank all their members for the generous support they have given the Association over the years despite the difficulties they themselves have encountered. Their support is greatly valued.

STATEMENT FROM ZIMRA - please note

Goods that are excluded from the Travellers' Rebate
Following the announcement of the 2014 National Budget by the Honourable Minister of Finance and Economic Development, changes have been made to the rebate of duty on travellers' effects covered under Section 114 of the Customs and Excise (General) Regulations, published in Statutory Instrument 154 of 2001 through Statutory Instrument 169 of 2013. The duty free allowance of US$300 per person granted on goods imported by travellers for their personal use no longer includes cooking oil and laundry bar soap. The list of goods that are excluded is now as follows: goods which are incorrectly declared;
goods which are imported for commercial purposes;
alcoholic beverages in excess of five litres per traveller of which two litres may be spirits:
goods which are imported by any member of the crew of an aircraft, ship or vehicle arriving from outside Zimbabwe; stoves; refrigerators; blankets; cooking oil; and Laundry bar soap.
This implies that the importation of such goods will attract duty despite the fact that the value might be under the duty free allowance of US$300.
Please take note of this latest development in order to avoid any inconveniences at ports of entry.
GARDEN PARK TRUST AGM
The 44th AGM of Garden Park Trust will be held on Thursday 13 February 2014 at 14h30 in the Guest House Lounge. All interested parties are welcome to attend.

Mbokodo Butchery has tons of manure to be given away free. Excellent feedlot manure - bring your lorries, bring your bakkies, bring your trailers. We can load it for you at no cost.
