XENOPHOBIA: Ronnie Mudhindo flees to Zimbabwe after his community was targeted in South Africa


SUNGURA artiste-cum-businessman, Ronnie Mudhindo, reckons home is best after fleeing a wave of xenophobic attacks in South Africa.

The former Utakataka Express founding member says he is now relieved after saving his family from possible attacks across the Limpopo.

The 45-year-old, who has since settled in Kwekwe, revealed he had a close shave with death after his community was targeted in Mpumalanga.

“I have always told fellow Zimbabweans in South Africa that home is best and I am a living testimony.

“I had settled well in South Africa for years where I had a decent job and running some businesses but I left everything after realising that life is precious and decided to come back home.

“I’m back in Kwekwe with my family because we were targeted by South Africans who were baying for our blood,” he said.

The Vazvamburi band leader said he was set to resume live shows alongside his long-time friend, Solo Moyo.

“Now that I am back home, I will not starve my family because I have always been a hard worker.

“My plan right now is to hold a series of live shows with Solo Moyo, who happens to be a long-time friend.

“Our first show will be held on Good Friday at Mbizo Inn here in Kwekwe.

“On Saturday, we are set to hold another gig at Patchway Mine with more coming in due course,” he said.

Besides live shows, the bass guitarist said he was also in the studio recording an album.

“As a seasoned musician, I always try my best to ensure that I give fans something new.

“Currently, I am busy in the studio working on a single titled Wandifungisa Kure featuring Solo Moyo.

“We are also going to release its visuals in a week’s time to ensure we complement the audio.”

He, however, conceded that he was willing to learn new survival tips from locals.

“In Zimbabwe life is too fast, so I am willing to learn fast about how I will bring food on the table besides music.

“It’s always nice to learn from others and do the right things,” he said.

His counterpart, Moyo, said he was willing to work with Mudhindo.

“We are always together these days doing business and music so I am looking forward to greater things from this partnership.

“Ronnie is a good friend of mine and I will always give him a shoulder if he needs my help,” he said.
