    Gokomere steals show at Catholic choir competitions

    Gokomere (Masvingo Diocese).

    TAWANDA HOMBA

    GWERU – Gokomere and Mashava was undoubtedly the people’s choice to win The Roman Catholic National Choir Competitions held in Gweru Saturday last week.
    It therefore came as a big shock and surprise when the choir which shook the Zanu PF Conference Centre in Gweru to its foundation with a sterling performance came second behind Innercity of Harare Archdiocese.
    Gokomere and Mashava was the last of the 31 choirs to go on stage. The choir got everyone talking, there was a standing ovation after its performance and this left everyone believing that the Masvingo-based choir had taken the honours.
    People started talking after the announcement of the results with many accusing judges of favouring Inner City.
    The Gokomere Mashava choir comprised pupils from Gokomere primary, students from Gokomore High, elders from Gokomere Mission, Zimuto and Mashava.
    The competitions were sponsored by Ecosure and two bishops, Michael Bhasera of Masvingo Diocese and Raymond Mupandasekwa from Chinhoyi Diocese were present.
    Zimbabwe Catholic Community in South Africa was the only choir from outside the borders of the country that participated and they hired two luxury busses to the competitions.
    The line up of the top 10 choirs is;
    1.Intercity
    2.Gokomere (Masvingo Diocese)
    3. Southwest (Archdiocese of Harare)
    4.  Kwekwe (Gweru Diocese)
    5.  Eastern (Archdiocese of Bulawayo)
    6. Chitungwiza (Archidiocese of Harare)
    7. Gweru Urban (Gweru)
    8. Zimbabwe Catholic Community in South Africa
    9. Gutu number (Masvingo)
    10. Masvingo Urban (Masvingo)
    The song title was Ndinouya nezvichemo zvangu composed by Desmond Jakachira from the Diocese of Mutare.
    The event was however, dampened by the news of an accident involving Tatenda Bus which was bringing the Hwange Central Choir ro the competitions early that morning.
