I know it's been a while since I posted these live discussions but the old man's remakes on Kalangas the other day got me thinking, which is a bit strange as I hardly do that lol. Jokes aside, I would like to find out if you think music like Sinazo's 'BuKalanga' can help revive the language.

Do you think Kalanga language is dying?

    'some people' what kind of a discussion is that? Are you acting as a gate keeper , and agenda setter for the Shonas (some people). Its Pathetic that you calling this muted gossiping about 'some people'a discussion. You cannot start a discussion you are afraid. First you have to Liberate yourself from fear of the [Some people] people (some people). Then you be in a position to discuss or facilitate a discussion , how does someone with a facilitator paralysed and cowed by fear of [Some people] genocidists.

    In the first place you allow [Some people] people to mingle with you and you play dumb when there is one [Some people] amongst you, you all speak [Some people] not kalanga. What do you expect will happen in 15 years to come, you will all be shonas. Khabalenja ibuyele kubo.

    I think people are now addictive of simple having to blame President and mentioning his name always... Is there any Shona..people in that region. Why is it that most Kalangas ,Sothos and Nambians always regard themselves to be [Some people]s

    [Some people]s have swolled most languages in the Southern region of Zimbabwe... even Sotho ,Nambia and Tonga languages are slowly get whipped by [Some people]s.. Do involve President into this ...

    Kalanga was destroyed first by [Some people] oppressive regime of Kings... Most Kalangas regard themselves [Some people]s now..

    How on hell does anyone suggests stupid assumptions of involving President it this.

    No one can kill khalanga language except the. khalanga themselves. by assimilating the [Some people] and [Some people] and tswana people they will kill their lamguage. They should stick to speaking their language. even in the face of [Some people] tswana assault.In their areas they must force the police the nurses all civil sarvants to speak their language no matter what.
