Prolific Chidora walks onto the literary Podium with a new Beverage of Poetic Prowess.


CHIDORA is a revolutionary poet and a modernist voice re-inventing the art of poesy. The literary maestro walks to the Zimbabwean artistic podium and the global literary stardom carrying in his pen hardened palms, a new beverage of poetic prowess, a literary jug of dexterity frothing with centuries of fermented hard truth, concocted with political paradox and laced with tragic humor of our moral decadence.  Morsels of satire are hard to swallow and the metaphor is bitter and scalds greed throats of recycled revolutionary rejects. The irony jabs hardly on propaganda hardened rib boxes of ideological imbeciles pruning the country naked in broad daylight. The imagery smacks the famished apparitions of city dwellers and drought scorched peasants sipping  left overs of the freedom soup. CHIDORA concocts theory and practice  as he wields  his smoking weapon, the pen  into literary stardom. A widely published poet, Acclaimed Writer and Distinguished Scholar. TIME OF THE POET REPUBLIC is greatly excited to feature prowess and profile excellence in form of Iconic Zimbabwean Voice TANAKA CHIDORA.
