lobola scene3.jpgThe Zimbabwe Censorship Board (ZCB) has reversed the ban on the recently premiered film ‘Lobola’, which stars former Big Brother Africa All Stars Housemate, Munyaradzi Chidzonga.

The Board had banned the film on Friday for not really portraying the African way of paying lobola.

They had also objected to a scene in the film where young people kiss in front of parents, adding that no one gets married drunk.

The film’s producers, who include Mr. Nyaradzo Muchena, had appealed to the ZCB and the Ministry of Home Affairs to reverse the decision saying that the reasons given for the denial do not constitute harmful threats to Zimbabwean society. 

The comedy tells the story of a United States-raised young man who, together with his equally ignorant brothers, go to pay lobola without full knowledge of the custom.
