Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - Bongani Ndlovu Showbiz Cor­re­spon­dent

POP­U­LAR ZBCtv talk show host Re­becca Chisamba, pop­u­larly known as Mai Chisamba, will be in Bu­l­awayo to­mor­row to record episodes of her show at the Large City Hall. In an ad­ver­tise­ment on ZBCtv, Mai Chisamba in­vited res­i­dents of Bu­l­awayo to come and be part of the live record­ing.

“On Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 19, the Mai Chisamba show will be at the Large City Hall to record episodes of the show from 10AM. Come let’s dis­cuss top­ics such as cor­rup­tion, di­vorces and road traf­fic safety to­gether,” she said.

Mai Chisamba last recorded her pro­gramme in Bu­l­awayo two years ago. The re­sponse from fol­low­ers was over­whelm­ing as they packed the Rain­bow Cine­mas.

The re­sponse prompted Mai Chisamba at that time, to con­sider us­ing a larger venue for her next record­ing. This is why she has set­tled for the Large City Hall as the ideal venue.

The Mai Chisamba show airs ev­ery Sun­day at 9PM after the main news at 8PM. Mai Chisamba, a dec­o­rated tele­vi­sion per­son­al­ity and a teacher by train­ing, has scooped nu­mer­ous awards for her role as the ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer and host of the premier Mai Chisamba talk show.

The show tack­les top­i­cal is­sues that af­fect the mod­ern Zim­bab­wean so­ci­ety.

A mother of five and a grand­mother of two, Mai Chisamba has been hon­oured for up­hold­ing tra­di­tional African val­ues and lo­cal lan­guages, and for us­ing the mass me­dia ef­fec­tively in ad­vo­cat­ing for a gen­der bal­anced so­ci­ety.

With a bub­bly per­son­al­ity, the con­ser­va­tion­ist has in the past paid homage to her fam­ily and hus­band, Arnold Chisamba, for their un­stint­ing sup­port in the face of fame that comes with chal­lenges to her per­sonal life — @ bon­ganinkunzi.
