In tonight’s Live discussion, we take a look at the new Nehanda statue and the reaction of many Zimbabweans to the unveiling of the statue.

Tinashe Jonas helps us to answer the questions:

  1. Was comedian madam boss out of line when she made a skit about the Mbuya Nehanda skit.
  2. Would this kind of reaction happen in another country? Would she make such a skit about the Lobengula skit? Will she face any negative traditional consequences?
  3. What is the significance of statues and why do they cause such emotional reactions?
  4. Was the money well spent? What is the significance of Mbuya Nehanda in present day Zimbabwe?
