    Civil society organisations made good on the pledges that they gave at the Feya Feya Conference in Bulawayo on June 27, 2013 to put heads together in calling for free, fair and credible elections which led to the holding of the event.

    Urban grooves artistes, Guspy Warrior, Dadza D, Syndicate, Jiggaz and Magesh graced the open air, free of charge event and entertained a crowd comprising of supporters from the different parties battling out in the forthcoming harmonized elections, including MDC-T and Zanu-PF.

    Zimbabwe is due to have harmonized elections for President, Members of Parliament and Local Government on July 31.

    Four election focused campaigns of Zimbabwe civil society organisations merged into the Chitungwiza edutainment concert.

    Win Against Violent Elections (WAVE) by Heal Zimbabwe Trust, X1G by Election Resource Centre (ERC) and Dat is Da Vote by ZimRights were the campaigns which have been ongoing that collaborated for the Feya Feya concert.

    The Chitungwiza residents who attended walked away with regalia in the from of WAVE berets, Feya Feya hooded jackets and, X1G and Handei t-shirts, with messages in support of the principle of free, fair and credible elections.

    The Chitungwiza event benefited from collaboration and coordination amongst various organisations including but not limited to, The X1G Campaign, ZimRights, Heal Zimbabwe, Zimbabwe National Students Union (ZINASU), Combined Harare Residents Association (CHRA), Build A Better Youth Zimbabwe (BABY-Zimbabwe) and Media and Technology Trust (MTT).
