with Fambai Ngirande, radical and seeker of meaningful conversation
January 22, 2013
yourself in five words?
Christian. Leftist. Radical. Humble. Patriotic.
the best piece of advice you've ever received?
Study to show yourself approved - a workman who has no need to be
the most ridiculous thing you've ever done?
Had a strange bout of sleepwalking when l was much younger.
is your most treasured possession?
My closest friends.
do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
Lives lived in unjust and repressed situations - personal or public,
devoid of hope, given to helplessness.
have any strange hobbies?
I am very plain actually. I do however have the curious habit of
soliciting meaningful conversation with strangers e.g. with the
random juice card vendor or the guard at the building entrance (highly
therapeutic and inspirational most of the time).
do you dislike most about your appearance?
My growing tummy which left to its own devices will condemn me to
the unsavoury appearance of a ball-like short man - God forbid -
gym here l come!
is your greatest extravagance?
I do have a penchant for fine meals and single malt drinks when
the company is good.
have you got in your fridge?
Basic stuff - lots of leftovers, a bit January diseased.
is your greatest fear?
The prospect of wasted potential, unrealised dreams and missed opportunities.
have you got in your pockets right now?
My wallet. What have you got in your wallet? - a need for cash donations!
is your favourite journey?
Leisurely drive around the scenic eastern highlands (with my baby
by my side and a nice cd playing).
are your heroes in real life?
My late grandmother and a lot of the women striving to make a living
in a context that is heavily tilted against them.
and where were you happiest?
your biggest vice?
were you like at school?
Happy go lucky.
are you doing next?
Writing reports (sadly).
