 MONDAYS are known to be blue. Many will be smarting from a two day weekend’s rest.
This Monday, January 13, 2014 is however unique in its own way as it is the last day before schools officially open for the 2014 first term, while some companies have opened, or failed to open for business this year. Here are some pictures to lighten up your Monday

‘SCHOOL TIME AGAIN?’, he seems to be saying….

Pritchard Kanyoka, who will be Form 1 at Mutendi High School in Masvingo, sits as he waits for the school bus at the National Museums pick-up point on Monday. Boys and girls like Pritchard would have likely spent their December holidays making sure they have secured a suitable secondary school where they will take their education further. But on a lighter note, they would have probably enjoyed their last holidays as primary school pupils Goodbyes to primary school colleagues  are said because secondary school means new classes, new friends and a new chapter in education. This day is usuallya good day for many form ones who will be going to new boarding schools as their parents or guardians  pack the best items to prepare their child for the new environment. Second term is always another story.
HERE WE SELL THEM CHEAPER…

Enterprising….an unidentified woman sells school wear at prices lower than that of conventional shops along Leopold Takawira street on Monday. Street  vendors who sell uniforms are often all over Leopold Takawira Street, selling any school items from jackets to socks at negotiable prices. They grow in numbers during the back-to-school days when parents and guardians are usually in a last minute rush to buy uniforms. Their co-existence with conventional uniform shops remains a mystery as they sell their wares right on the doorsteps of these shops…and they solicit for sales from people entering the shops!

 

 

 “PUSHING AND SHOVING THEIR WAY HOME”
1-
The blitz on commuter omnibuses by the police on Monday resulted in transport blues. Here, Dzivarasekwa bound commuters push and shove to get into a bus. Buses often charge less and in situations like this, the bus operators, who are out to make a killing, want to cash in on every little space in the bus. See the man in blue looking out the doorway? He seems to be calling out to his colleague who might not have been so lucky to find space in the bus. The woman holding corn snacks seems to have abandoned the struggle to get into the bus and must be looking out for another coach.  But one has got to fear for the tomatoes in the plastic held by the man in red cap!

 

OF SJAMBOKS, TICKET BOOKS, AND COMMUTER CREWS…

A senior police officer fixes the pocket of a colleague outside Mashonganyika Building before the official opening of the legal year by Chief Justice Chidyausiku. On auspicious occasions like these, officers are supposed to be dressed in their best attire and this officer must have been lucky to have a good friend notice an anormally on his pocket.
