The message was delivered by teachers from Mashonaland Central province during a colorful, ZIMTA cultural night held in Masvingo in August this year where ten provinces participated and performed various cultural activities.
 
Through a poem performed by Samuel Midzi, teachers were warned against abusing their authority in schools, and proposing love to students, a situation which results in unplanned pregnancies and suffering for the vulnerable and disadvantaged girl child.
 
Mashonaland Central Mbira group grabbed everyone’s attention with their unique attire and mbira music which also opened up the cultural night.

It was Harare province which managed to get the crowd on its feet when they showed up in their traditional attire, and performed the Jerusalem dance. It was obvious that Harare had rehearsed well as they went on to perform a highly coordinated dance and song on stage. No-one could afford to be bored.
 
Bulawayo was also not to be out done, as they showed up with a proudly Ndebele dance that showcased the richness of the language and culture. All were kept glued onto the stage as the group took their time to entertain the teachers.
 
Celebrating the diverse Zimbabwean culture in various ways were also, Matebeleland North, Masvingo, Matebeleland South, Manicaland, Mashonaland East and Midlands Provinces who took turns to woo the crowds with their amazing performances.
 
The cultural night is an event that takes place every year during the ZIMTA games. It is a get together celebration for teachers to enjoy and foster stronger ties as colleagues in one profession.
 
 
 
Members have advocated for the event to be taken seriously and for prizes to be given to those who showcase exquisite talents in this area
