plight of interracial couples

Authored by Mr. Temba Magorimbo, Mr. Temba Magorimbo

Charles Saungweme seems to have it all. At eighteen he fails to qualify for university even though he had a brilliant brain and was an 'A' Ordinary level student. His parents pressurise him over his academic and professional education. Deborah Burgher is the daughter of Doctor Karl and Mrs. Katherine Hanns in Zimbabwe on a missionary expedition for four years. Karl is a medical specialist attached to a non-governmental organisation that is financing the operations of restoring eyes. Deborah meets Charles within three weeks of her arrival in Zimbabwe. Deborah is a communications software specialist attached to the state broadcaster for the period her parents are in the country. Charles rubs his African charm onto Deborah. He wows her with friendship taking her to places where she sees the other side of Africa. Young and energetic men in Zimbabwe have seen the fruits of tourism. They see white arrivals in the country as a meal ticket. In the long run, she starts to thaw to the hard working Charles whom she continues to run into. Occasionally Charles hurries back to his African roots where his parents talk him out of a white girl for a daughter in law. His parents disagree with his fraternising with a white woman and a Germany at that! They differ in political circles too. He is anti-government while his parents are pro-ruling party enthusiasts. At times he listens to them and goes into a trance of moods. He meets Ratidzo, a cute nursing sister at Avenues and cheats on both ladies. She at times doubles, as a musician at her favourite jazz club though nursing is her vocation and passion. She becomes his date, one of many. Dr Karl and Mrs. Katherine Burgher return to Germany at the end of their tenure. A crisis erupts as Deborah Charles to follow her to Germany if he really cared for her. She is further sick and tired of uncovering Charles's trail of girlfriends in the African class. He nurses his injuries and drowns them in his love for the green bottle. Will he nurse his pride and follow the woman he once loved over hills, mountains, seas and oceans to Germany?
