About nine years ago, a local reproductive health firm Banja La Mtsogolo (BLM) launched a condom brand called Manyuchi and soon its appeal reigned across all social classes on the domestic scene.
The firm’s vibrant marketing team then proudly bragged that the stuff was studded and had chocolate flavour that could provide extra sexual sensitivity and enjoyment.
And true to BLM’s claims, shortly thereafter, an American tourist fainted while in the act at a rest house in Salima as he experienced the Manyuchi magic.
And a few years later, a tobacco tenant in Kasungu could not help but ask for an extra session from a hooker after enjoying the pleasure of the Manyuchi magic and he was reported to have pleaded: ‘Adona loleni ya pulayizi pilizi chonde’ (Please give me a token of free round.)
Well, as far as I am concerned, that is the only Manyuchi brand that I have known over the years.
But I hear in Zimbabwe, they have another brand of Manyuchi—a welterweight boxing champion called Charles Manyuchi—who is enjoying rave reviews because of his exploits in the ring.
This fella is scheduled to face our very own ‘Chipembere’—Chimwemwe Chiotcha at the end of the month in a bout being organised by Mike ‘Bangwe 1’ Chitenje of Mulanje Last Boxing Promotions.
Well, I have had the privilege to watch ‘Chipembere’s bouts on a few occasions and he is certainly not the fella to mess around with. It is my prayer that Manyuchi will not need a plastic surgery on his face after the showdown because ‘Chipembere’ is massive.
But maybe, I am saying just maybe, Manyuchi will perform the magic that made the American tourist to faint at the Salima rest house nine years back. Glory be to God!Uloliwe.. Uloliwe wayidudula hi..Nang’esiza! [The train is pushing!]
