     A Grade 7 Mutatiri Primary School pupil, Vimbiso Dhehwa (11) sailed through to the semis in this year's Starbrite competitions doing poetry.

    The journey to the semi-finals started with the first round at Mazambara High School in Zimuto on 5 August this year in which she won the first position and on 6 August in the second round at provincial level at the Civic Centre in Masvingo she came out tops again earning herself a place in the third round staged in Harare on 25 September this year.
