BULAWAYO –In a development that points to the growing success ofthe Amazing Stars Arts Academy (ASAA), this local drama ensemble recently appeared on national radio, Radio Zimbabwe.
The Forgiven Ndlovu-led group of performers, working with the Zimbabwe Development Democracy Trust (ZDDT) on responsible leadership issues, citizen mobilisation, democratic transition and other related subjects, featured in a 30minute programme: “EZabatsha”, which means Youth Affairs, during which the subject of street theatre, as a way of sending messages and creating employment, was extensively discussed.

He added that Radio Zimbabwe had promised them a slot every Saturday when the national broadcaster, Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC)’s second programming segment opens in May.
