I am an adventure seeking individual; a lawyer by profession, human rights advocate by calling and a hopeless romantic at heart.I have worked with different groupings including youths, orphans, women (politicians, activists, refugees and internally displaced persons),  in the span of my rather short career. I have been told I have a way with words. Although I have been writing for a while now, most of my writings ended as PC documents. I am not the most gifted person when it comes to academic expression even though I convinced the assessors of my LLM (Human Rights and Democratisation in Africa) thesis it was worth a passing mark. I guess I might just be gifted after all :). I have decided to write and share with the rest of the world my musings, ramblings, ranting and raving and I sure hope in this way I can share what I have been privileged to discover and learn through my work and travels.

    I just read your article about the situation in Zimbabwe. Now, i’m trying to find the fund to support the victims. I can not find it. Can you help me? I like reading, but I also want to do something. I will try to stimulate my school (in Belgium) to help. I feel responsible to do something. You understand.

    I like this. What can we do together as Zimbabweans to assist our mothers and sisters. I have an idea. Lets discuss if you are happy to.

      Thank you dear, these women are the real heroines and I am only telling the world what they have done but which no one has ever really said out aloud. Thanks for reading the Chronicles and please keep reading.

    Hi Rumbidzai

    We’ve really been enjoying your feminist chronicles – thanks a lot. We’d like to create a print product using your feminist chronicles – a newspaper perhaps – to share with Kubatana members around Zimbabwe, many of whom struggle to access the Internet.

    Would you be ok with this?

    We would credit you of course as well as publicise your blog.

    Best wishes,

      Hi Bev

      Thanks for reading the Chronicles. Indeed yes, the idea that we can get this information to women at the grassroots would be lovely. I know the problems we have with internet here in Zimbabwe, I mean I even struggle to post my Chronicles on schedule each day because the internet is a challenge. So the idea of making this information accessible to women in the grassroots in the medium they can access is a wonderful one.

      Look forward to working with you on this issue.
