The ZimDigital content creation team is shooting a play Diaspora, by renowned writer Dr Tonderai Tsodzo in Mashonaland East.
The play which was written by Dr Tsodzo and developed by Felex Mutasa is underway with the first episode having been shot at his Pachedu farm in Marondera.
Dr Tsodzo said the commencement of the project shows that the government is serious when it called upon content creators to come up with concepts during a content creation meeting in Marondera last year.
He also thanked government for availing resources.
“We would like thank the government for having availed resources as that has been our biggest challenge as content creators,” said Dr Tsodzo.
Speaking about the play, Dr Tsodzo said; “The play depicts the role the diaspora has played in our social lives and how the young generation should learn from that”.
The play speaks of the story of Alexio’s love life as he marries her ex- wife Mebo’s friend Rutendo after she had gone to the Diaspora.
The former wife returned back home with her new found status wanting to reconcile with her former husband but faces resistance from the new wife who now has two twin daughters with the husband.
