TBT: 1995 with my inspiration Maiguru Magi (Margret Tsiga-Mashingaidze). She was a primary school teacher paid farely well but she couldn't live the good life coz she decided to take care of my two orphaned cousins and I. We lived on bare minimum but there was always food, love and shelter. I stayed with her for 6years and almost every year we would move to a new place of lodging:
- 1995 - St Andrews road Hatfield. We stayed in a 1 room partitioned by a wardrobe. 5 of us in that room myself, my two cousins, my mom and maiguru Magi.
- 1996 - Winson Rd South Hatfield. We stayed in a Boys Kaya - two rooms #upgrade - 1998 - Dunmore Rd Queensdale. We stayed in a 1 room (a garage come house) partitioned by a curtain. - 2000 - we moved to St Martin's Rd Hatfield. We stayed in a 1 room partitioned by a curtain.
- 2001 - we moved to another place in St Martin's Rd: 2 rooms
When I was 12 she sat me down and taught me everything there was to know about puberty...voice breaking, chest forming, hair growing in sacred places, voice breaking and hormones raging. She was amazing. When I was 16 I worked my first job in TM bakery along Julius Nyerere way and with my first salary I bought her a bottle of Chateu Brandy...that was the first time I ever witnessed the iron lady crying.
There are angels in life but she was more. May her soul rest in eternal peace. #BestThrowback
