THE ra­dio sta­tion which is part of the broad­cast arm of the Zim­pa­pers Group, will hold the event at their tra­di­tional venue Man­i­ca­land Mo­tor­ing Club and will be broad­cast live.

This year’s fes­tiv­i­ties are spe­cial and dif­fer­ent in spe­cial ways, said the ra­dio sta­tion’s af­fa­ble man­ager, Le­an­der Kandiero.

Un­like last year where the event was a one­day event, this year’s fes­tiv­i­ties will see the ra­dio sta­tion team­ing up with sis­ter ra­dio sta­tion Star FM in un­veil­ing a unique but ex­cit­ing con­cept: “Pachedu Vasikana: Ngok­wethu Mankazana” which will be led by top pre­sen­ters Tilda Moyo and Tariro Maz­varir­wofa pop­u­larly known as (Mai Judha).

The Satur­day event con­cept, which will be held to­mor­row, is open for ev­ery­one but par­tic­i­pa­tion will be strictly for women who will en­gage in com­pe­ti­tions in sev­eral cat­e­gories such as cook­ing, clean­ing, hy­giene among other things.

The con­cept, Kandiero said, will be com­ing to Mutare as part of the cel­e­bra­tions.

“Women who are will­ing to be part of the com­pe­ti­tions should reg­is­ter in groups and the reg­is­tra­tion is free. This will also give them time to ex­change ideas and learn from each other’s ex­pe­ri­ences. They will be plenty of prizes to be won and this is part of our ap­pre­ci­a­tion to lis­ten­ers who have stood with us since the sta­tion’s birth,” he said.

Satur­day’s event ends at 6pm.

“We will also give peo­ple an op­por­tu­nity to cel­e­brate Mother’s Day in style, on Sun­day. There will be a Di­a­mond FM Mother’s treat where peo­ple will be given time to ap­pre­ci­ate their mothers. A bias will be given to el­derly mothers who will be in at­ten­dance. They will be given a chance to drive cars with the as­sis­tance of in­struc­tors.

Mothers will also be given a chance to be ra­dio pre­sen­ters. There will also be a five-aside soc­cer match. A lot of prizes will be won to out­stand­ing in­di­vid­u­als and teams,” added Kandiero.

Other com­pe­ti­tions that will be held in­clude eat­ing and drink­ing, out­stand­ing mothers.

From 2-6pm, cel­e­brated and up­com­ing artistes namely Se­bas­tian Ma­gacha, Ngoni Kam­barami, Caff, Zim dance­hall Lady Popa, Moun­tain Kid, Faith and Avonso will take turns to en­ter­tain the au­di­ence.

The event will also be an ideal op­por­tu­nity for the busi­ness com­mu­nity to ad­ver­tise their prod­ucts and ser­vices.

The an­niver­sary will be broad­cast live on the lo­cal ra­dio sta­tion. Chil­dren (Un­der 12years) will part ways with a pal­try 50 cents on the gate while adults will part with a $1.

Chil­dren have also not been over­looked on this week­end’s menu.

They will be treated to en­ter­tain­ment events such as jump­ing cas­tle, horse rid­ing and face paint­ing.
