Thomas Mapfumo Finally Returns To The United States

Chimurenga Music legend Thomas ‘Mukanya’ Mapfumo has finally left the country for his base in the United States after an extended stay of over three months.

Mukanya was originally scheduled to leave in January after he came back home for the highly anticipated Peace Tour in December.

However, things did not work out as well as expected and Mapfumo failed to return to the United States according to schedule as he accused local promoter Max Mugaba of swindling him. According to Mapfumo, Mugabe mysteriously disappeared with all the funds whenever they held music shows. However, Mugaba denied the allegations arguing that the shows had failed spectacularly.

In the end, Mapfumo was forced to postpone his return as he needed to remunerate the band members that he had hired for the tour. In an earlier interview, Mapfumo said,

I delayed my return to America before settling arrears because I wanted to work and pay the band that I had contracted.

I could have returned to America before settling the arrears but ethically it is not right. I was not brought up that way. What I strive for is just peace of mind.”
