Writing opportunity for women.
"We are excited to introduce our new publications meant to amplify women’s voices on a whole new level. While we are supportive of efforts to promote press freedom, we believe the press cannot be free to perpetrate stereotypes that lead to the subjugation, exclusion, and discrimination of women as well as promote the current status quo where women are not viewed as equal to men. Thus we are creating spaces where women’s voices can be heard in a balanced and fair manner. Even more liberating is the fact that we welcome the telling of women’s stories through fiction as well.

''...the thing I had originally planned to write on is that, in developed countries, even though there are laws that guarantee women's rights and respect, it is however not a guarantee that people's - both men and women - attitudes towards women are as they should be. There are still archaic ways and attitudes held against women. The idea that women should know their place and if they speak out the wrath against them will be twice as much as a man would get under the same circumstance is proof of our need to keep striving to be better.''

''A fresh wind blew over Zimbabwe today as opposition members united in protest against Zanu PF. I posit here that they have to be smart, strategic and take nothing for granted if they are to beat Robert Mugabe and get him out of power. Since rogue Mugabe began tightening his grip on power, politics in Zimbabwe has become a poisoned chalice, you have to be careful where you drink from and with whom you drink.

Mugabe is known for coming down heavily to crush any opposition by hook or crook, including sowing divisions among opposition using, among things, state-controlled mouthpieces such as the Herald. When Thoko Khupe was peeved by Tsvangirai’s appointment of two men as co – Vice Presidents, Nathaniel Manheru (believed to be presidential spokesperson George Charamba) joyously jeered at Khupe accusing her of being incompetent...''

Dozens of university graduates in Zimbabwe are taking to the streets in their full graduation regalia under a protest named #ThisGown, to play street soccer with balls made from garbage, and sell sweets and cigarettes. They are protesting Mugabe’s failure in running the country, and the false promise peddled by his ZANU-PF party in the 2013 election campaign to create 2.2 million jobs.

A LETTER TO MUGABE AND HIS WIFE
''...Mr President university graduates are playing bhora rechikweshe in the streets because they have nothing to do, industry has come to its knees; young girls are selling their bodies in the Mukuvisi area – opting for the slow death from HIV than sudden death from hunger; pregnant women are being asked to bring their own 20 litres of water at maternity wards in order to give birth – imagine Bona wailing in labour pain and having to carry a 20 liter container of water halfway across the country; children are dying of malnutrition, of hunger; women are walking into modern day slavery in countries like Kuwait because no one wants to live in Zimbabwe anymore – they’d rather be anywhere except their own motherland...''

''The discontent and disappointment among Zimbabweans with Evan Mawarire, for choosing to remain in South Africa for his own safety, while understandable, it is also hypocritical. It is utmost hypocritical for us to expect Evan Mawarire to die for us while we have not shown that we are ready to die for ourselves. One dead man is a victory for Mugabe not for us.
I am aware that the arrest and sudden exile of Mawarire affected
the morale of the movement and disrupted its momentum but,
Zimbabwe, we have to be very real and realistic here, the man
cannot take chances with this bloodthirsty regime. We know
there are other activists in Zimbabwe who are seemingly not
have been harmed ( the argument I battled with my friend while chatting last week), but the brutally honest truth is that Mawarire posed a credible, high-level threat to Mugabe’s rule, and
history is there to show us ...''
