Comprised of Chiredzi East and South characters, the highlight vibes of Huku ya ntima have already caused a unique sensational stir in the Low veld.
One of the villagers cum actors, Chris Dlagisi summed it all in the native language saying: “Ku nga ri khale hi ta va hi tiphina hi leswi humako Hlengweni.” Translated to mean that very soon people will be enjoying something from the XiTsonga territory.
