1) Editorial


Bulawayo's streets and open areas have become a disgrace. The amount of litter in our streets and open areas is growing daily and our once beautiful city looks unkempt. It is as if we as Bulawegans simply dont care any longer about where we live. We have almost given up and with an air of resignation blame those who throw plastic bottles away after using them. As a result no one does anything about it.
Gandhi once said - be the change you want to see in the world. That applies to us. It is time to stop blaming others and time for us to do something ourselves about it.

Recently a destitute young man came to our gate asking for money or food. I decided to employ him to clean up the three streets leading to our home from the Burnside road. We gave him black litter bags to place all the litter in. He worked diligently over some 4 days and cleaned up a massive amount of litter. Frustratingly of course as he toiled others came behind him dropping plastic bottles but our streets are greatly improved.

This past week we have got him to start on the street around our daughter's home in another suburb and he is transforming that area, cleaning up years of litter.
The City Council refuse removal trucks have been happy to away tens of bags.
The point of this blog is certainly not to sing my own praises. The point is to encourage all of us to do something to stop the rot. Most people cannot afford to hire extra people to clean up our streets. But all of us can afford to spend a little bit of time cleaning up outside our own homes and businesses. Imagine if every person decided to clean up outside their own homes - the city would be transformed within a week!

In the past year or so an enterprising young man, Tonderai Shoko, has got a team of people together to clean up particular areas, which is an outstanding effort but inevitably there is a limit to what he and his patriotic helpers can do. That is where I come back to the need for a collective effort. If we are to succeed all of us need to stop complaining and get on with the small areas we are responsible for.
There is one other challenge - namely educating people not to litter. It needs education rather than coercion. We all need to speak to our children and those we are able to influence not to litter. There are of course those who dump litter on an industrial scale who need to be reported and prosecuted. But most litter comes from poor people who have nowhere else to leave the plastic bottle they have just used.
But we must not get distracted by those who will continue to litter. We need to develop a new culture of pride in our city and that starts with those of us who have the capacity to start cleaning up wherever we can.

So here is the challenge:
- each of us needs to tidy up outside our own home;
- each of us needs to tidy up outside your own business or where you work;
- encourage your neighbours to do the same, not in an intimidating or condescending way, but rather by example.

I suspect that if a critical mass of us start doing that we will have a disproportionate influence on our city and return it to a home we can take pride in. And none of this takes much money - all it takes is time and a bit of exercise, which we all need anyway.



Nozizwe News

Christmas is coming it is a time for reunions, bonding, renewing of friendship, the season of joy, peace, love & unity and a common tradition is the exchanging of gifts with our loved ones, friends, workmates and family and having lots of yummy food to eat ....

With this in mind Team Nozizwe and partners are planning a massive Christmas soup kitchen for next month , bringing a traditional Christmas to underprivileged communities in particular the 1000 plus children we feed at our four kitchens. Ngozi mine, Pumula , Woodville and Cabatsha

Here's the catch ...... we need your help to pull this off... we're planning on cooking up a storm for our little friends and elderly folks ...... serving rice, grilled chicken, and salads , with a little something sweet for dessert , cupcakes maybe sweeties and drinks AND THEN...... give each child a little toy/special gift to take home .....

Due to limited storage space for perishables we will accept canned foods, dried foods and other non perishables first from now until December. Then perishable goods such as vegetables and meats can come in a few days before the big day.

Donations big and small of any special eats and treats are most welcome to make this a reality, in the previous years over Christmas we have served up to 700 children and this year we would like to break that record. If you would like to donate to this years soup kitchen please do get in touch .....

Rogue 1 - A Star Wars Story is the immediate prequel to the very first Star Wars film of 1977 (A New Hope, now Episode IV). All looks lost for the Rebellion against the Empire as the leaders learn of the existence of a new super weapon, the Death Star. Once a possible weakness in its construction is uncovered, the Rebel Alliance must set out on a desperate mission to steal the plans for the Death Star. The future of the entire galaxy now rests upon its success..
- Rogue One is a bold and stirring adventure film that will have both fans and casual observers spellbound. [Associated Press]
- Rogue One features stirring action scenes, vivid characterisation and one or two truly eye-popping explosions. [Independent]
- Rogue One, directed by Gareth Edwards with a sharp script by Tony Gilroy and Chris Weitz, is a bracing and dizzying marvel, propulsively pitched and even, I dare say, moving. [Vanity Fair]
Admission: US$2.00 [free to Film Members]

Saint- Saens: Violin Concerto No.3 in B minor - Grieg: Piano Concerto.in A minor - Dvo ak: Symphony No.5 in F major
The celebrated violinist Julia Fischer, who also trained as a pianist, pulled off a rare and risky feat with extra-ordinary prowess in this concert by following Saint-Saens' Violin Concerto No. 3 with the ever-popular Grieg Piano Concerto. After the interval comes Dvo ak's deeply lovable Fifth Symphony, the first wholly personal masterwork in his symphonic canon which miraculously distils the essence of his Czech homeland into music.
- Ms. Fischer played a dazzling account of Saint-Saens's Violin Concerto No. 3 but what made the concert momentous was that after the intermission she returned as a pianist and gave an accomplished, beautifully personal performance of Grieg's Piano Concerto. [New York Times]
- Jiri B lohlavek's track record in this repertoire marks him out as one of the leading Dvo ak interpreters of the day, and this beautifully presented, excellently recorded performance of Dvo ak's Fifth: Symphony will only enhance his reputation. [www.classical-music.com]
Admission: US$2.00 [free to Red Carpet Members]

Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson), a former government operative, is trying to reconnect with his daughter, Kim (Maggie Grace). Then his worst fears become real when sex slavers abduct Kim and her friend shortly after they arrive in Paris for vacation. With just four days until Kim will be auctioned off, Bryan must call on every skill he learned in black ops to rescue her.
- Taken is a fast-paced, high-octane action movie that doesn't take very many detours into soul-searching melancholy. [Washington Times]
- Director Pierre Morel does a great job of blending just enough exhilarating action sequences, thrills and brief comic relief for a thrilling, taut and purely escapist ride.. [NYC Movie Guru ]
- I won't tell you Taken is great, but it's great fun. [San Francisco Chronicle]
Admission: US$2.00 [free to Film Members]

Camille Saint-Saens died a hundred years ago on 16 December 1921 and his music features prominently this month and next. His Samson et Dalila has all the ingredients for popular success. The subject, based on Chapter 16 of the Book of Judges, is well known and lends itself to spectacular presentation, not least in the final scene as the blinded Samson summons his strength to bring down the pillars of the temple. (As the old joke has it, it's the one opera guaranteed to bring the house down..) The title roles are equally rewarding, matching the voluptuous lines of Dalila's music with an essentially heroic tenor part for Samson.
- A triumph on every level. Get this 'Samson' and forget all others. Shirley Verrett's teaming with Vickers is the stuff of which legends are made. If I could give it six stars, I would. [Amazon]
- This is an amazing performance of an amazing opera by amazing performers. [Desert Cart]
Admission: US$2.00 [free to Red Carpet members]

End-of-year concert with guest performers.
Admission free - but donations most welcome!

Knowing that the lockdown has given folk time to sort out cupboards, garages etc - please have a look at our Charity Shop List and our Kennel Wish List - you may be surprised how many unwanted items to you - are just what we are needing here at the kennels!

All the volunteers who work at the charity shop deserve a big pat on the back, but they DO need items to sell! - apparently the shelves are rather bare, so they would appreciate any unwanted saleable household goods, such as ornaments, glassware, crockery, pictures, clothing, garden tools, small items of furniture, jam jars for the jam makers! - in fact anything they can sell to make money to help the kennels.
They have Ecocash for convenience - items can be dropped off at the Charity shop - 127e,Robert Mugabe Way.

Kennel and Clinic Wish List
If folk could donate any one of these items, that would be fantastic!
