interview with Sister Mercy Mutyambizi
yourself in five words.
A motivator, hard-worker, lovable, straight-forward; I call a spade
the best piece of advice you've ever received?
Keep your heart up! Keep going, don't lose focus.
do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
is your greatest fear?
My fragile health.
is your favourite journey?
I would love to go to Switzerland.
is your most treasured possession?
My cross around my neck.
are some of your hobbies and interests?
I love swimming, netball, and I like to watch television a lot!
were you like at school?
I was very naughty at school. I liked PE and English.
are you heroes in real life?
Two are late; Mother Theresa of Calcutta and Lady Diana. The surviving
ones are Dolly Parton; she is my motivator and Oprah Winfrey; she
has done a lot of work. And the late Mai Mugabe.
is your biggest vice?
I can't hide my feelings, especially if I'm angry.
and where are you happiest?
When Shungu Dzevana Trust got a registration certificate.
is your greatest extravagance?
I went and found this shop with beautiful dresses for little girls.
I bought one for every child between 0 and 3 years that was here
at Shungu Dzevana. Even the lady in that shop was surprised. That
was in 2005.
does International Women's Day mean to you?
It is a very noble idea. It's a great day that women are recognised.
After all if it weren't for a woman, giving birth to us, we
would all not be here.
