Zvishavane – Shabanie FC aka Chinda Boys were humiliated before their loyal fans by lowly placed Gweru Utd at their fortress Maglass Stadium on Sunday when they went down 1-2 to the visitors.
Chinda Boys succumbed to two early first half goals, the first coming in the 2nd  minute through a spectacular free kick from Gweru Utd forward Ariel Makopa and the second in the  23rd  minute due to a lapse in concentration from the hosts' defence allowing Blessing Sibanda to chip in a grounder to making it 2 nil.
Chinda Boys got their consolation through Bruno in the 69th minute when he converted a set piece just outside the box.
This was Shabanie's second loss of the season at home after they were beaten by Tongogara FC a month ago.
Shabanie FC head coach Tendai Chikuni could not hide his disappointment with the lack of fighting spirit from his

ZVISHAVANE – Laina Sithole (19) an athlete from the small mining town of Zvishavane has raised the national flag high at the just ended All Africa Games held in Congo-Brazzaville after winning a bronze medal in the 100m race for the disabled.                     
Sithole has albinism.
The 11th edition of the All Africa Games competitions was staged from September 4 to the 19th.
Linah was amongst four disabled athletes who represented Zimbabwe in the competitions. She also competed in the 200 meters race where she came out in fourth position.
Speaking to The Mirror soon after arriving from Congo, Linah said that she was overwhelmed by her performance although she feels she could have done better.
"I am happy that I got a medal although l could have done better had a I had a good start to the race. My problem is that last year l had a false-start in Zambia and I was disqualified so l feared that I would repeat the same mistake again this time. I therefore delayed my take-off to make sure l did not get disqualified and this cost me," said Linah
Linah started representing the country in 2011 when she was 15 years old and she once scooped two bronze medals in Swaziland. Last year she won gold in Zone 6 competitions in Bulawayo.
Team Zimbabwe secured eight medals 3 gold in swimming won by Kirsty Coventry, one bronze for the minced swimmers. Tennis had three bronze while athletics had one bronze which came from

Bulawayo – It was a Masvingo Diocese affair at the Roman Catholic Schools' Choral Competitions held in Bulawayo over the weekend when two of its choirs came in the top three after beating 27 other choirs to the honours.
Silveria and Mutero high schools came first and third respectively in the competitions.
Serima which is under Gweru Diocese although it is in Masvingo Province came second.
The 27 schools in the competitions came from eight Catholic dioceses.
Serima improved tremendously as it jumped from position nine  to two while Silveira climbed up to the top of the ladder from position 10.
This is the second edition of the competitions.
Mutero High maintained its position as it remained on number three from last year.
Regina Mundi from Gweru was judged the most improved choir.
Silveira walked away with a Casio 3000 keyboard, $160 and a trophy for coming first and Serima got a Casio 2115 keyboard, prize money and a trophy.
Kutama Boys College sent tongues wagging when their choir which did not have girls sang in such a way that many believed there were girls in the choir.
Chido Nyanga of Serima was voted the second best conductor.
This year's set-piece 'Baba Somandla' was composed by Fr. Alex S. Ndlovu of the Archdiocese of Bulawayo and choirs have been practicing since last term.
Meanwhile, Education Secretary for Gweru Diocese, Sister Patricia Rubaya showered Serima with praises for their polished performance.
"They have done us proud and as a diocese we really want to thank Dehwah and his team. It is my prayer that all top three positions come to Gweru next year. So from now it's no longer business as usual," said Sister Patricia
Zimbabwe Catholic Bishops' Conference National Education Co-ordinator Sister Dr Annah Theresa Nyadombo who was the guest of honour commended schools for inculcating a holistic approach in educating pupils.
"Our goal as Catholics is to produce a holistic child who is able to survive anywhere after school, earning a better living. From this competition, you can see that students are being taught co-curriculam activities such as leadership, teamwork and confidence.
"I am happy to see that schools are working extremely hard to improve their pupils' dressing and innovations. Our main thrust is not winning, but building family-hood, interaction and sharing," she

MASVINGO - There will be no cattle at the Masvingo Agricultural Show that kicks off today because of a serious outbreak of foot and mouth and blackleg, Ernest Dzimwasha the Provincial Veterinary officer has confirmed.
Foot and Mouth could not be controlled for some time now after it hit many districts in the province.
Blackleg outbreak started a couple of weeks ago and most cases have been reported in Masvingo Rural, particularly the Topora-Zano area, under Chief Chikwanda.
Dzimwasha told The Mirror that the two outbreaks have affected agricultural shows that were held in various districts across the province but declined to give further comments and referred The Mirror to the head office in Harare as he said the matter was a sensitive national issue.
Cattle movements have been suspended and therefore there will be no livestock at the province's premium agricultural show to be held in Masvingo from September 23-27, 2015.
The outbreak has negatively affected rural farmers who depend on cattle sales for revenue as they faced difficulties in paying fees for their children at the opening of the third term a few weeks ago.
The Veterinary Services department is currently vaccinating cattle at dip tanks in areas where there are outbreaks.agriculture

Masvingo – The Minister of State for Masvingo, Shuvai Mahofa will officially open the 2015 Masvingo Agricultural Show which opens at the Show grounds this Thursday.
This was confirmed by the Show Society's deputy chairperson Jephta Mathose.
The show promises to be one of the biggest in many years with 107 exhibitors having registered by Tuesday this week. This is a big jump compared to the 89 exhibitors recorded last year.
"The prospects are very good for this year and we are likely to be oversubscribed. This year's show is better despite the fact that there is no livestock due to the outbreak of Foot and Mouth and Newcastle," said Phillip Mauta the chairperson of the Provincial Show Society.
All industries and services will be represented at the annual showcase and there will be entertainment galore for all age groups.
"There is a lot of entertainment for everyone, the ever exciting drum majorettes, ZRP and ZNA displays, ZPCS Band and horse displays and the main attraction is Shinsoman, who is coming for the first time to perform at the show in Masvingo," said Jane Marevesa secretary for the Masvingo Provincial Show Society.
The show is running under the theme "Shifting From Relief to Sustainable Development".agriculture
