yourself in five words
Humble. An achiever. I'm a hard worker.
the best piece of advice you've ever received?
To be tolerant of other people's views. To respect other views
and respect everyone that I interact with. I think that's
very important in life.
the most ridiculous thing you've ever done?
I woke up very late one day and I missed an important meeting.
is your most treasured possession?
do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
Professionally, if you are unable to meet the targets or objectives
you've set for yourself. That can be very painful.
have any strange hobbies?
Some think it's very strange that I can watch soccer from
morning to evening.

Arsenal. It's the best team.

That this country could slide back into the 2008/2009 era.

My wallet with very little money in it.

Visiting London. I like it. There are so many different people that
flock to London. Every country is represented there.
are your heroes in real life?
My mother. I am where I am because of her.
and where were you happiest?
On my wedding day.
is your biggest vice?
I think people should not drink too much . . . but I do it.
were you like at school?
I was in between. I was the sports writer for the school. I'd
go to every game and write a report, which everyone would read.
So in that respect I was very popular.
are you doing next?
I want to do more challenging things. I want to expand what I'm
doing and go beyond Zimbabwe's borders.
