Zathu set for Season 6 launch
Zathu pa Wailesi is geared up for another season of drama as Season 6 hits the airwaves on February 3 2020.
A press statement from Zathu says Season 6 brings plot twists and tension to drama as Zathu youngsters try to balance their personal growth, friendship and the one thing that brings them together—the band.
But the question that comes up for them is that, will they survive what is coming their way?
The statement says that one of these complications started at the end of Season 5 when a young relationship was slowly blooming. Chikondi who is not sure about her true feelings for Avocado, who expresses his intentions to be in a relationship with her, finally confessed her feelings to Avocado.
As the friendship grew Chikondi finds herself considering a new question, “where can she get information on sexual reproductive health and rights?”
And so ever willing to make informed decisions, Chikondi goes in search of answers and struggles to find information about sexual reproductive health and rights (SRHR). Where will she find the answers she needs? How will the Zathu friends support Chikondi’s choice considering Avocado’s past bad boy behavior?
Zathu presenters, C-Zee and DJ Goxy, have also been on the road learning from outstanding and innovative young people around the country in preparation to share their inspiring lives for season 6.
In Timve Kwa Inu, C-Zee and DJ Goxy are talking to teenagers about relationships and how other young people are using their relationships to support each other’s dreams and goals.
The ever wise Gogo is only a message away answering all the burning questions from young people around the country.
A statement from Zathu says Girl Effect which spearheads Zathu pa Wailesi is a creative non-governmental organisation (NGO) that uses media platforms (such as music and radio) to confront real-life issues for girls and boys; to challenge the way people think about girls and enable them to reach their full potential; and which in turn can help break the poverty cycle.
The NGO is part of the Dreams (Determined, Resilient, Empowered, Aids-free, Mentored, and Safe) – partnership with Pepfar which focuses on reducing HIV infections in adolescent girls and young women across 15 African countries, including Malawi.
This partnership led to the development of the Zathu brand in 2017.
