It is very apt that in this week as the young people of Zimbabwe are getting ready to lead the country into protest- a photo of a young Mthuli surfaces.
Suddenly I am looking at Young Mthuli with a different perspective. It’s hard at times to remember that this cabinet where young once, they too had dreams, hopes and ambitions.
Mthuli in fact would have gone to school at a time when teaching was a very lucrative career.
It was a sure ticket out of poverty in Rhodesia a gateway to a secure civil service income with possibilities of professional development.
I am sure the ambitious Mthuli was captivated by these teachers, knew he would push his education and be somebody one day and that he became…
I wondered if we could go back in time what would we say to the 15 year old Mthuli
1- The opportunities awarded to you allow them to others. Infact strive that more access the same if not better.
2- Do the right thing. Never be ashamed to stand for what is right.
