Why The River And The Queen Are Always Trending Online

Why The River And The Queen Are Always Trending Online Why The River And The Queen Are Always Trending Online Veteran actress; Florence Masebe tweeted: “Acting to trend vs acting to give life to the story,” late last year. It seems like more and more soapies and telenovela’s are aiming to trend than to tell authentic stories because when they trend they get noticed and get awards. The less talked about a show is, the less likely it’ll win awards. However, it’s not always the case as shows like Gomora have proven that they can tell authentic stories, trend and still get awards. Gomora unlike The Queen has a talented cast and tells stories that South Africans can relate with 90% of the time. While The Queen is always trending, it never wins awards because audiences do not relate with the sto...

Lockdown amid Covid surge has no support for people

A rise in coronavirus cases in Zimbabwe has prompted President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government to put the nation on a 30 day strict lockdown. The Southern African country, which had had relatively low coronavirus infection rates since March 2020 when the first death was recorded, saw a rise in cases in December following citizens returning home from neighbouring South Africa for the festive season. Announcing the stiff lockdown measures in Harare last week, vice-president and health minister Constantino Chiwenga said the country had seen a “surge in COVID-19 cases during the festive season”, with cases almost doubling in the past two months. Only essential services including hospitals, pharmacies and supermarkets are being allowed to operate, with only essential staff allowe...

Zimbabwe gold deliveries tumble nearly a third to 19 tonnes in 2020

A Zimbabwean miner works underground at Metallon Gold mine in Shamva, about 80 km (50 miles) north of the capital Hararre, file. REUTERS/Philimon Bulawayo/File Photo FPR pays U.S. dollars in cash to small-scale gold miners, but a shortage of hard cash caused delays in payments most of last year. That forced many of the miners to sell their gold to illegal buyers, industry officials say. Deliveries of gold, the top foreign currency earner, have been on the decline since reaching a record 33.2 tonnes 2018, mainly due to delays by FPR in paying miners. The central bank last month announced plans to unbundle FPR into two separate companies and sell a majority stake in the new gold refinery business to miners, in a bid to boost output. FPR data showed that total gold deliveries fell to 19.05 to...

Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe governor John Mangudya said the bank’s monetary policy committee had agreed “to remove the compulsory requirement to liquidate all unutilised export proceedings after 60 days, with immediate effect”. But exporters would now have to sell 40% of...
