1) Editorial


All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood. - Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Every Zimbabwean has the right, regardless of colour, creed, tribe, language, wealth, location, religion, race, sex or age to feel free, safe and proud to stand up and be counted as a Zimbabwean. We all have the right to stand shoulder to shoulder and hold our heads high, as a resourceful, dynamic and successful society. Each and every one of us matters, we are owed the right to vote, to work, to live and to be happy in the nation of our birth. These are the fundamental rights of every human alive in the world today, and we as Zimbabweans are born with these rights. No man, woman, government or institution has the right to take this right from us, and we stand together to be counted as a united Zimbabwe, steadfast in our duty to free our country from a single party political dictatorship, to become a proud, vibrant and significant democratic African State.

1 Million Zimbabwean Voices is neither ZANU PF, nor ZAPU, nor MDC - M, nor MDC - T, nor New Dawn. We have no political allegiance to any Party of the Zimbabwean Political Establishment. 1 Million Zimbabwean Voices is merely the combined and unified voice of every Zimbabwean that demands to be a part of recovery and reclamation of Zimbabwe by its true owners; The Zimbabwean People.

As the sun sets on a tired and feeble regime, the opportunities are endless. Now is the time on the eve of National Elections for Zimbabweans World Wide to come together, to unite in organisation, ally with each other, unify in voice and work together to change Zimbabwe for the better. Now is the time to accept that talk is cheap, complaining endlessly will only discourage us, and realise that the International Community are not going to fix our country, while we watch and wait from the sidelines. The chance for every Zimbabwean man and woman, black and white to gather together from the Diaspora to right here in Zimbabwe, and make change happen together. Join the wave, make a difference.lend your voice!

Retrouvaille (Rediscover) MARRIAGE WORKSHOP
Any of this sound familiar? "He will never change. She doesn't understand me. We don't talk like we used to. We have nothing in common any more. We live separate lives. He always criticises me. She never listens to me. She is always nagging me. He has changed. She is not the same person I married any more. We always seem to argue and my life is full of sadness. I am totally disillusioned with marriage as I cannot get my needs met. I do not feel valued or respected and I see no hope of change. This is not the way things were supposed to be."

Most of us have been there at some time. But it doesn't have to be this way. Instead of growing away from each other, we can turn things around and rediscover the wonder of the person we married. Are you willing to actually work at your marriage - to do something you've probably never done before? Probably never had the chance to do? Are you willing to invest in a weekend away together? It will probably be the most important weekend you have every experienced and will open up a future together you never thought possible. It will be a profoundly deep life changing experience as we teach you communication in non-threatening ways. Let's face it, our marriages are the most important things in our lives and they have all been put under great stress in this country. The weekend consists of a series of presentations by team couples sharing their own struggles toward growth in their own marriages and invite you to embark on your own journey of self discovery which you share privately together. There is no group sharing and the team are there to guide and support - not counsel or advise. You will learn you are not alone. We have all struggled and we all want to make things better. Weekend: 3rd, 4th 5th September, 2010 Cost of workshop: US$ 150 per couple full board including workshops Venue: Hotel Rio For more information contact: Clive & Bernadette Terry cell 0712 221 443 Home 09 241224 Grace & Hendrick Vermaak 09 206543 Cell 0733 289 079 www.retrouvaille. org

Friday 3 September at 6.30 the Robert Sibson Hall [with supper interval]
Herbert von Karajan conducts two La Scala productions specially restaged for filming. Cavalleria Rusticana : "Magnificently sung, subtly played and dramatically acted . the passion of Sicily fanned into a bonfire by one of the world's most brilliant conductors and a great cast. A great night of filmed opera" [New York Post]. Pagliacci : "Jon Vickers is outstanding as Canio, Raina Kabaivanska and Peter Glossop are also very impressive. an interpretation of exceptionally strong emotions and artistic quality" [New York Times]. Admission: $3.00 / R25.00 [free to Red Carpet members and subscribers]

Tuesday 7 September at 7.30 p.m. in the Robert Sibson Hall
This concert is promoted by the Alliance Fran aise de Bulawayo who have supplied the following background to Ali Keita's performance: "West African musician Ali Ke ta has earned worldwide renown for his mastery of the balafon, a marimba-like instrument native to the region. While rooted in tradition, Keita's Afro-pop, funk-fuelled rhythm section and taste for complex jazz-oriented arrangements set him far apart from most balafonists. Ali hails from a famous musical family, the same that produced Salif Ke ta, one of West Africa's most treasured songwriters and musical talents. Having been brought up in this hot-house environment, Ali relocated as an adult to Germany. "His instrumental brilliance earned him opportunities to collaborate with jazz and world music legends and he made his debut as a bandleader in 2008. The record, entitled Akwaba Inisene, turned heads across Europe and debuted in the Top 20 on World Music Charts Europe." So, very different from our usual fare but we hope that everyone will be tempted to come and experience something new! Admission: $5.00 / R40.00 [free to Red Carpet members and subscribers]

Thursday 9 September at 7.00 p.m. in the Robert Sibson Hall

Admission: $3.00 / R25.00 [free to Red Carpet members only]

Friday 17 September at 6.30 the Robert Sibson Hall 6.30 p.m. [with supper interval]
"Wagner's passionate opera about a medieval minstrel torn between the temptations of sacred and profane love is seen here in one of the most gorgeous and gloriously romantic productions in the Met's repertory" [New York Times]. "A distinguished cast is headed by Richard Cassily who was perhaps the leading exponent of Tannh user at the time with Eva Marton as a radiant Elizabeth and Tatiana Troyanos a musically and dramatically stunning Venus. The evening's brightest star, however, was arguably James Levine whose grasp of the score was all-encompassing, bringing out all the incidental beauties while keeping it moving." [Richard Eviden]. Admission: $3.00 / R25.00 [free to Red Carpet members and subscribers]

6) Pets

I just wanted to warn residents in the Bellevue area about poisoning of dogs.We found our little staffi cross jack russell in a very bad way this morning.He sleeps inside the house at night and had been let out at about seven this morning,he did not come back in for his breakfast as usual.When we went looking for him we found him lying on his side quivering, in terrible pain. He was rushed to the vet where we were told that he had been poisoned with "two step".This a very fast acting but very painful poison.
This the second dog that has been poisoned in the last few weeks,the police were informed of the death of the last dog and checked on all the dogs along our road in conjunction with the SPCA. Should you suspect that your dog has been poisoned please report the matter to your nearest police station {Donnington covers Bellevue},it is a criminal offense to poison dogs.

In need of a break then please allow us to accommodate you whilst you de-stress and enjoy getting back to nature.
If game viewing sounds a bit too strenuous for you then you can just lounge by our sparkling pool with a good book or just enjoy the sounds of the bush.

Classes this size do not allow for much individual help. If so, I can coach your son or daughter in the above subjects, having had 35 years experience teaching these subjects. I take only one student at a time, which ensures that the student has individual attention and help. Are you having problems with expensive inflexible payrolls? If so, I can develop an extremely reasonably priced tailor made payroll system for your business, mine, farm or institution.
