ZBC TV talk show Malaika focuses on women



Malaika ZBC TV Talk Show

A NEW television talk show, Malaika, which screens on ZBCtv, tackles challenges faced by African women at home and society from a Christian perspective.

It airs every Saturday at 5.30PM.

Season one of the 28-minute talk show is in its third episode this week.

Malaika is presented by Rosemary Tyatya alongside a panel comprising co-hosts Zodwa Mhlophe, Jackie Mlambo and Audrey Hardy.

It is produced by Church Team Ministries International.

One of the panel hosts, Zodwa, said Malaika was targeting Christian women mostly in Southern Africa.

“Malaika focuses on southern Africa as a whole and seeks to bring real-life facts and issues pertaining to Christians in a particular region.
“The talk show is a tool to set women free from the bondage of tradition and culture that is limiting them from experiencing their true freedom in Jesus Christ,” said Zodwa.

She said Malaika was established two years ago out of the need to engage on issues that were taboo for women in African society.

“Topics that are tackled are mostly taboo within the church and are not freely spoken about. Malaika came about to uncover all these things and bring the word of Jesus Christ to somehow help those that are struggling in those different matters and are afraid to speak out or ask questions. In turn, this will bring awareness to the church leaders and pastors about those underlying matters so that the church of God can know the truth,” said Zodwa.

This week, the Malaika panel will discuss the topic: “Why is Sexual Purity so Important”. Previous episodes tackled “How to Choose the Right Spouse” and “How to be Content in Singlehood”. On some episodes, there is a guest who shares her experiences and how she overcame them.

Zodwa said the talk show will spread its wings to other Southern African countries such as Zambia, Namibia, Malawi and Botswana in the near future.

Repeats of the talk show can be watched on video sharing site YouTube on the Malaika TV channel. Besides ZBCtv, Malaika airs on TBN Mzansi on Kwese TV Channel 810.The Herald.

Tawanda Mambo (Saintfloew)goes to SA for rehab




Zimbabwean rapper Saintfloew is looking to kick his drug addiction once and for all and has reportedly flown out to South Africa where he is going to receive rehabilitation services.

In an interview with Star FM’s Ollah 7 last week, Saintfloew admitted that he was taking drugs, although he was in the process of trying to quit. He refused to admit whether he had been taking the dreaded crystal meth, known popularly as Guka or Dombo.

I cannot confirm the allegations and I cannot say anything about them, so I am not confirming anything and I am not talking about anything. But what I am saying is we came out from the wrong way, a lot happens here in Chitown (Chitungwiza) and I took multiple drugs.

I am still working on quitting taking some of the things. I am not confirming anything but all I can say is there are some drugs that I am trying to stop,” he said.

Saintfloew also revealed that his drug addiction had little to do with the music industry.

It is not like the pressures of music cause artists to take drugs, but before we became artists, we had nothing to do and we had all the time to take drugs. Now if it is regret or moving on, that is what I am working on,” he said

In an interview with H-Metro before the rapper’s departure to South Africa, Saintfloew’s mother, Ebenezer Mambo said that her son’s struggles with drugs were linked to a tough upbringing. She said the musician lost his father at the age of two.

We lost his father when they were still very young and there was no man in the house to whip my son into line. I tried my best to give him a life, but there are some times when a father is needed in the upbringing of children.

I have never doubted my son’s intelligence, but I was worried when he continued pursuing music. He ended up taking drugs and it pains me a lot,” she said.

Mambo praised Nash Paints Group executive chairman, Tinashe Mutarisi, who convinced Saintfloew to go for rehab in SA, for helping her son get back on track.

“I am humbled that good people still exist as is the case with Mr Tinashe Mutarisi. I think he was sent by God to save my son from abusing drugs.

“Like the biblical Moses, Mutarisi has just done the best for my family and I hope my son will come back from South Africa a changed man,” she said.

Kudzai Mushonga Khanyi Mbau

There are indications that the on-and-off romantic relationship between Khanyi Mbau and Kudzai Mushonga has heated up once more. The couple recently shared pictures of themselves getting cosy on their Instagram pages. One of the photos shows them snuggled up in each other’s arms on a yacht in Dubai, where Mushonga resides. In the caption, they wrote, “We might bend, but won’t break.”

Although Mbau has been in South Africa for work, she is a resident of Dubai and shares a home with Kudzai Mushonga, a Zimbabwean businessman. In another post, the couple is seen toasting with red roses in hand. Mushonga wrote, “Forever us my baby @mbaureloaded. I love you.”

In May, the couple’s relationship status was the subject of speculation after they deleted all posts of each other from their social media accounts. This came after Kudzai Mushonga was rumoured to be romantically involved with Vanja Vicentijevic.

The couple has been in the news before when Mushonga publicly expressed concern about Mbau’s whereabouts after she went missing in Dubai. It was later discovered that Mbau had returned to South Africa without informing Mushonga.
