BOOGIE INSIDE CHIKURUBI PRISON | His name does not ring a bell but, mbira singer Chiremba Hwesamasango is a celebrity at Chikurubi Female Prison.


Last Sunday, Hwesamasango took his band and a group of about 50 people to donate goods and groceries worth more than $700 to Chikurubi Female Prison. They spent about five hours having a good time in jail.

The musician said he started by raising $300 and then encouraged his fans and some well-wishers to contribute any amount towards the noble cause. “I always felt this need to assist and I am happy because people responded in an encouraging way. The women and children in prison need our support and they were happy with what we did,” he told The Herald.
