Top Zimbabwean comedian, Carl Joshua-Ncube has urged government to listen to citizens' concerns that are manifesting on social media, saying authorities must find a way of solving the country's problems and accept criticism.
Carl Joshua was speaking after an intriguing performance at Charles Austin Theatre in Masvingo last week.

"As citizens, we do not use social media merely to criticise but to contribute to debate which builds our country which we dearly love. These platforms could be used to solve some of our problems," Ncube said.
Meanwhile, other local stand-up comedians; Sam Farai Monro popularly known as Cde Fatso and NAMA award-winning Clive Chigubhu are billed to perform at the same venue on June 4 in a show dubbed 'Clive and The Comrade – Stand Up Comedy Tour'.

He has also been steadily building himself a global audience and has been invited to perform in comedy shows in Belgium, Germany, Tanzania and
