The announcement was made by the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office who is also a member of the Organ on National Healing and Reconciliation, Senator Sekai Holland.
“Oliver and our Organ are working on an album for the national healing cause,” Senator Holand said. “We have already finalised the wording for the album and are only waiting for a few logistical issues to be sorted out.”
She did not say how many songs were on the album.
Holland said Mtukudzi had agreed to do this project for the national cause and for free.
At the just concluded conference on women and their ideas for the new constitution Mtukudzi sang two songs from the new album and had the women dancing at the Harare International Conference Centre (HICC).
Mtukudzi was appointed a music Ambassador for Zimbabwe because of his numerous works as well as his popularity both locally and abroad.
The star has won several local and international awards.
