Zimbabwe’s foremost playwright, educationist and arts practitioner Stephen Chifunyise aka Uncle Steve has joined Gem Nation News as a columnist, in a move that is set to further reposition the online publication as an authoritative source of in-depth news, arts and culture analysis.

“We are pleased to introduce renowned writers in the likes of Uncle Steve and Mai Juju. This is in keeping with our tagline news on the go and we are hoping that as we continue to grow we grow together.

“As a paper, we value our Zimbabwean arts and culture, an area where few newspapers, if any are paying attention to. Outside of Gemnation TV there is more to come,” Jonathan Mbiriyamveka, the editor said.

Uncle Steve as he is oft-called in the arts circles brings a wealth of experience to Gem Nation News readers who are already familiar with the Gem Nation News.

Chifunyise or rather Uncle Steve is renowned for his analytical pieces which used to appear in The Herald and other renowned journals for organisations such as Unesco and Children’s Performing Arts workshop.

Uncle Steve’s column will be the second after the hard hitting column Peeling the Onion with Mai Juju, a first from Gem Nation News.
