I was in my home library reading , relaxing and reading, i mean the day was simple though gray and uninviting. She called me , she had arrived in Zimbabwe , Harare the previous . She wanted to talk to me , no romance here . no. She was given my name by some artists , she was told of my hardworking , my spirit of creativity , my respect to women kind. IT IS TRUE I was brought up by a women .
Tsitsi came to Zimbabwe during the rain season , i forgot the date , i was broke , i was depressed , Zimbabwe was broke . My energy was smoked out , yes i was tired of the country i was born . Tsitsi called . We met at Mug and Bean . She was anticipating a selfish , proud and stupid petit -kleptomania . I arrived at the venue , simple dressed , drenched and wet . LIFE.
I didn’t beg her . She bought a black-label Zimbabwean brand beer , i gulped it with the hunger of English , yes iam a village student what do you expect? We experienced , stole and drank traditional brew. I drank the drags . It was beautiful meeting . She told me of the wonderful project – Setseno Women Writers Mentor ship project for Africans and Zimbabweans . Her best story on Amazon DIARY OF THE USAH , her other famous story Zebra crossings which is featured on YouTube as a trailer. Wonderful digital marketing.
I responded , i needed in my creative life , she needed me in her professional life , it all became professional . THE SISTER is inspiring . She is the inspiration of young African girls and women . She discovered her talent during the greenness of her age. VERY VALID. We talked about my blogs , projects , gender issues and life .
Tsitsi went back to London after few days of our rainy , soddy and wonderful . She called . We started working together , digital working . She is still working hard and iam working hard. I respect diehards.
