Tendai Mugabe Senior Reporter—
Buhera South legislator Cde Joseph Chinotimba and his wife Vimbai yesterday celebrated Valentine’s Day in style after winning the longest kiss competition organised by the Book of African Records.

Cde Chinotimba’s kiss lasted for 10 minutes and 17 seconds.

The event that coincided with the Valentine’s Day celebrations was held at a top Harare hotel where Cde Chinotimba walked away with a food humper, $1 000 and a year’s DTSV subscription.

An elated Cde Chinotimba yesterday said: “I won $1 000 and a Dstv subscription for a year.” First runner-up was Mr and Mrs Mbundure whose kiss lasted for five minutes and 23 seconds followed by Mr Jabulani Maphosa and Shyline Hama who kissed for two minutes 35 seconds.

Mr Tinashe Saruchera and Yvonne Saruchera kissed for two minutes 30 seconds. The video showing Cde Chinotimba kissing his wife has since gone viral on social media. The event was an initiative by the Book of African Records to encourage Zimbabweans to break a record that will be published in the upcoming Book of African Records Zimbabwe Edition next year.

The contestants were married couples and had to kiss continuously with lips touching at all times. If the lips were unlocked then the couple was immediately disqualified. Proof of marriage was required and it was also open to couples married under customary law. The contestants were not allowed to be supported by any aids.

Rest breaks were not allowed. Concubines or girlfriends or those who are engaged were not allowed in the competition. The current world record for the longest kiss stands at 58 hours and is held by a Thai couple.

    I’m sure Nathaniel Manheru is shaking his head in disbelief. He wants our arts and entertainment industry,to be about telling our own story,promoting our own culture,instead we have leaders like Chinoz promoting the western culture.By now most of you have noticed,we didn’t have the other side,by our columnist Nathaniel Manheru. I’m guessing he is probably disgusted,by the development in his beloved party. After coming out with guns blazing, in defence of the first family,he feels betrayed,and rightfully so. I’m sure he expected the prof,he accused of promoting factionalism,in the revolutionary party to face some disciplinary action,rather he was rewarded with a trip to Chiweshe,where he was at the top table at amai’s rally. Manheru was called out,for social media abuse by some war veterans, at both the politiburo’s meeting and at amai’s rally, and so far nobody has come to his defence,not even the people he was defending. It’s cold out there vakomana.

      Kissing is not a western culture but a human passion. It popularised by the west only. Adam & Eve were the first to kiss if you didn’t know.

      • mhofu

        can you prove it from the scriptures my man about this adam eve kissing

  • Mamvemve

    Tsika dzedu dziya dzakaendepi? Varume vakuru tapindwa nei? Not the type of competition you expect from our country’s legislators. We know times are rough Chinoz but…..

    • Cde Mzvinavhu(Prof)

      Hazvina musoro zvauri kutaura! Tsika dzedu dzipi dzaunoda kuti titewedzere. Zvinhu zvino sanduka nemagariro matsva munyika. Zvakafanana nokuti ana sekuru vedu vaiva nevakadzi vakawanda nokuti pagore mwana , pagore mwana nemukadzi . Tingatevedzere izvozvo isu tichida kugara hupenyu hwasiyana. Topfeka nhembe here nokuti sekuru Rovengura(Lobengula) vaidaro. Ngatingoti Cde Chinos should consider donating the food prize to the drought trodden people in his Vahera South constituency chete. Amhlope Cdes Baba na Mai Chinos!

      • Gary WekuZviyambe

        Funny how you want Chinoz to donate his $1,000 prize to his constituency yet you support Mugabe in having an $800,000 birthday party in the drought stricken Masvingo Province.

        • Cde Mzvinavhu(Prof)

          I never made any comment in respect of any party,let alone the one you referred to. Please give your proof or stop lying. I dont even have to the money to donate. How did I support it you MDCT liar?

    This time Chinoz is the Champ because Ambuya Karikoga and I were not available. If I was there with my woman crossing the Ocean, with my hunger in flight I would swallow her marking the longest kissing trip ever.

      It’s interesting to note the differences in taste.
      We just have to achieve this balance to cater for all tastes.

      • mabwe

        Not about the newspaper. It is good to put everything then readers choose. Maisvoreva is just saying the readers priorities are baffling. And I agree.

        • theheraldonline

          True, we understand his point. Quite exciting.

    Hate Him or Like him There is something with Chinoz that attracts people to him,he is the most popular legislator in Zim

  • Nyamasvisva

    I would have preferred the warring parties in the factionalised party to kiss and make up – now that’s news .

  • Cecil Roars

    Moti ** babe Chinos. Chii chaunoita munhu as MP.

  • Kuta Kinte

    Usatambe na Comrade. Vari kwese. Asi apa vazondipedzawo manje.

  • Cde Mzvinavhu(Prof)

    By no means. I hate ngochani , including a neighbouring President who supports your sellout party, MDCT. I have posted comments on this forum denouncing gays rights. Cde Chinos kissed a female not a male person. How are you linking it to your MDCT support for gay rights? I would not even kiss Jesus Christ! I kiss by beautiful wife, but not record breaking like our my dear Cde Chinos. I will advice him to cut or trim his beard to avoid ndebvu interfering with his wife`s kissing in public or private.

  • bhinikwa

    Good requirements….l love it for Zimbabwe. if not married you have no business in this competition….go & practise in the bush kikikikiki
