Explanation of each song below.
Live Audio of ZHRO Vigil at the Zimbabwe Embassy, London. The Audio was recorded on a mobile phone. Most of the chit chat was cut out, just the singing in the middle was left.
Leading the Singing was Sarah Bayisayi and on the drums for the first time was Chegika Lifa Phiri.
1) Song is called, Siya ZANU Idonhe, (Let ZANU fall, let ED fall and Go, siya Junta Iyende.) The have caused so much misery, This song is mostly sung here. Singing it in Zimbabwe could lead to 20 year incarceration, for attempting to overthrow a democratically elected Government and insulting the President.
2) Song is called, I don't know the reason why. It is referring to the way the people of Zimbabwe are being treated both in Zimbabwe and in the UK. The song leader laments the killings in Zimbabwe at the hands of the ZANU PF and its proxies, then asks why police brutality goes unchecked, then asks why the murders go unaccounted for, then asks Ambassador Katsande why he allows this, then asks E. D. Mnangagwa why he endorses this. Singing this song in Zimbabwe would get those brutal reprisal from the police and others of ZANU PF proxies.
3) Song is called, "I don't know Tinodakwa here?" (I don't know if I'll get drunk) even be able to get drunk to forget my problems. Can I even afford to get drunk. It then asks is 2 liters of alcohol will be enough, the answer is, "I don't know if Ill be able to get drunk." Led by Chegika Phiri, who was also on the drums.
4) Song is called, "Mnangagwa Dzosera Scarfa KwaNdunge Zvinhu Zvaoma" (Return your scarf to Ndunge, the economy has tanked). This is in reference to the current ruling elite of Zimbabwe not praying but only believing in spirit mediums and Which Doctors spells. The popular belief is that Mnangagwa got his scarf from a famous spirit medium called Ndunge. The leader of the singing is complaining that there are no Doctors, there is no medication, people are dying, bread is expensive, there is no electricity. The Hospitals are virtually all closed. There is no food and there is no real money.
5) Mnangagwa Ngaende, (Mnangagwa must go) is a song against Mnangagwa. It has so many variations of phrases that are against Mnangagwa and ZANU PF.
