Zimbabwe: Tambaoga Back With Anti-Corruption Song

"Agirimende" hit-maker, Last Chiyangwa, affectionately known as Tambaoga has resurfaced with a new anti-corruption song titled "Mutemo Wavirima".

The mbira musician, who made his name in early 2000 with his hard hitting lyrics during the early days of the land redistribution programme says he feels there is need to alert people and expose corruption . According to him, the new song blames people in the corridors of power for the high level of corruption.

"It is so sad that some of the people who are supposed to be stopping corruption are the ones causing it. As Zimbabweans, we should make it our mission to help the Government stop corruption. Instead of complaining about it, do something about it," said Tambaoga.

The musician stated that he is resolute in joining the public to fight corruption through music and he believes by using music, the increasing rate of corruption will reduce. The musician said he hoped the song will be played on all radio stations across the country and the national television and he urged the society to love the song because it is very educative.

"My anti-corruption song should be embraced by all Zimbabweans because it will educate and help the country fight the problem of corruption which has greatly affected the country's image," he said. He explained that corruption is one of the great problems hindering the country's development

"The Government is trying to fight corruption but it faces a lot of challenges to control it because the majority of the public are not aware of the negative impacts it has on our country."

Known for his unique delivery, Tambaoga announced his presence on the music scene with a charged hit song Agirimende and he did voice covers for the Third Chimurenga jingles, "Rambai Makashinga" and "Sendekera".
