WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THE NDEBELE CULTURE?

Good morning! I really want to type, ‘kuthi huuuu, ‘ but this isn’t the time to be playing around, right? So as my name suggests, I am Ndebele, in case you don’t know my full name it’s Nobuhle N Nyoni. We have a problem here because I have no idea what the Ndebele culture looks…


REASONS WHY YOU NEED TO VISIT ZIMBABWE

Zimbabwe- a house of stones. Just stones, nothing else. You would think if the wind hit hard it would fall apart, but it doesn’t. It never has, through the stormy nights too it still stands. I wish I knew where the strength comes from, but for now, we will thank the ancestors for those that…


ADVOCACY- ADDRESS DEPRESSION

I do not know of anything more complex to explain than depression. My brush with it changed me so much talking about it knots my whole brain. Where to begin or how it happened ever feels to tangled up. Believing that the lack of motivation to live, wake up, care or all that was and…

THE AFRICA YOU NEVER READ ABOUT.

This will definitely shock those that think of Africa as a country that has naked people roaming on it, with no infrastructure. Those that believe we know each other and stay in caves surviving through hunting and gathering. The very people that think we don’t know what money smells like.. Yeah, this one is for…

The Internet in Africa: Affordability, Availability, Accountability

I never imagined that I would be sitting here, writing a blog post on the afforvailcountability of the internet. Yes, I was also lazy to type everything out. So here goes my 2 cents. Affordability – not quite. In countries like Zim, data cost is still a big obstacle. Considering how a sizeable number of…

I am shaking! I am shaking because in my head I am standing in front of a class and I have to speak but thy nerves are kicking in a little too hard. Gosh! For the record, this is something I would want to do like for real for real! This is what I would…
