Musician Hosiah Chipanga says his farm offer was withdrawn by Manicaland minister, Mandi Chimene after he released the Gamba album.

“When I composed the album Gamba, former Vice-President Joice Mujuru was still in Zanu PF. It’s very unfortunate that she was expelled from the party, but most people thought I recorded the song for Joice Mujuru, but I recorded it for the late army General Solomon Mujuru. This is the reason the album did not get airplay,” Chipanga told Newsday.

“I distributed the copies to some Members of Parliament. I gave one copy to our local minister, Mandiitawepi Chimene, and she accepted the copy. The minister promised to give me a farm.

“But when I made a follow-up, everything backfired. This was after I was told that I had a farm in Nyazura. She told me that she was no longer able to work with me because the album Gamba criticised the ruling party.

“She (Chimene) openly told me that our relationship with her had broken down, but I thought I was giving advice to veterans of the liberation struggle.”
