It was a clash of some of the country’s best poets at the Dhege Gala held in Chivhu.

Nqindi the poet mesmerised audiences as he chanted poetry of traditional Ndebele praises.

Audiences screamed for more female poets as Mainini and Milicent rose to the occasion with polished performances.

Abel Mauchi who has thrived on humourising serious issues stole the show as he recited his poem ‘Varoyi’.

The Dhege Gala was organised by Tatenda Chinoda a poet and performing artist.
