On Monday police in Gweru banned performances of the play The Coup, saying it was “political”. But Lesley Zibonele Moyo from Rooftop Promotions tells Tererai the officers had not even seen the script or a video recording of the play. Moyo says police in Bindura also banned their performances. It is the duty of the Censorship Board to license their work and police are abusing their powers to block public discussions which take place after each performance. Tererai also speaks to feisty Harare businesswoman Nanette Bekker-Smith, who wrote to the City Council several times about the potholes on Spurn Road in Ardbennie, which are damaging her company’s trucks. The Council did nothing, so Nanette is now organising other businesses to withhold their rates and use the money to fix the road themselves.
