FORMER Studio 263 actress and law-maker Tatenda Mavetera reckons brighter showbiz days are coming back.

Mevetera opened up on the sidelines of former Studio 263 actress Anne Nhira’s burial yesterday.


She also thanked the Government for its assistance in repatriating Nhira’s body and meeting funeral expenses.


“I’m happy that my sister was given a huge send-o today (yesterday) here.


“Of course, many people might not see the value of this funeral where artistes have been respected.


“Of course, there is a lot which still needs to be done for the arts sector, but today we have been respected.


“Having Amai Mnangagwa as the guest speaker is indeed an honour for us. She has a lot of wisdom that she shared with mourners here and we hope arts chiefs have learnt a lot.


“Amai chipped in at the right time and we would like to thank her for her love,” she said.


Mavetera hailed the unity showed by players in the film industry at Nhira’s funeral wake and burial.


“While death is unwanted, Anne Nhira’s funeral has managed to bring us together.


“Had it not for the Covid-19 restrictions, many people would have made it here.


“Sadly, some failed to travel to Harare, but they were in touch with the family.


“We will continue doing our best to ensure that the film industry gets the recognition it deserves.


“In fact, all artistes deserve love all the time,” she said.
