This doesn’t happen often, and I’m loving every minute of it. Zimbabwe beat Australia in an ODI. I told my friends, pre-tournament, that this was entirely possible, and as I kept the faith throughout the game. That faith was repaid in wonderful fashion, and I have nearly 800 photos’ worth of evidence. Gallery soon coming.
So I’ve tried to keep my head up. Nolonga. We have basically been playing bullshit cricket for a while now. Our organization has been poor, and I don’t think anyone in charge is really focused on winning anything. Look, the current national cricket team coach, Steve Mangongo, has never played a single international cricket match.…Details
The long weekend is finally here. We’re all on holiday until next Wednesday. That is wonderful, my friend. Now, I don’t know if you are travelling this weekend, or if you’re simply staying in town and loitering in dingy bars, like I am. There is even a cricket Test on, wonder of wonders. Sunshine will…Details
All good things happen in threes, someone once said. I don’t know who - I probably got that from one of the uncountable books I’ve read. I could even have heard it from one of the million billion twitter “quote” accounts that people ReTweet (that’s Share, Facebook dinosaurs) onto my timeline every day. What is it about…Details
Young men of Zimbabwe, listen up. There’s a form of witchcraft going around, and I think you should be aware of it. Now, those of you getting laid, I’m proud of you. Congratulations. I also hope you’re using protection, because nyoro inouraya mboro. But let’s put that aside, for now. I naturally assume these…Details
So why the fuck should I bother to text STOP to 34443? Econet just changed the name of the promotion to GOAL instead of WIN, yet I thought the STOP would stop all promotional SMS. This is bullshit. I’m tired of this network and all their nonsense shenanigans. Promotions should be opt-in, not opt-out. In…Details
So if you didn’t know, we moved house a few months ago. One of the attractions of the new place was the shower. Showers are (as I’m sure you know, unless you don’t, in which case I’m sorry) awesome. So yeah, we have a shower now. And water to shower in, of course. That’s important…Details
Oh those are your friends? Nice friends, homie. That’s a lovely, happy, interesting, loyal set of friends you’ve got there. It makes a brother feel good to see someone sorrounded by such wonderful friends. Here’s an idea, though. Try this, and just call it an experiment. Quit your job, start your own business, work for…Details
So we have been bombarded and inundated with articles, images and sound-bytes about Zimbabwe winning some “Best Tourism Destination” whatever award, ostensibly from some official-sounding EU body. Visiting European Union Council on Tourism and Trade executives yesterday said they were not bound by the Western bloc’s foreign policy to isolate Zimbabwe as theirs was…Details
Apparently, Tanzania’s national soccer team have been locked out of Pandari.
I hear their stuff is in their rooms but the rooms have been barred, locking the team out.
ZIFA are said to owe Pandari around $200k already, hence the nuclear option.
