In Shona (a vernacular language of Zimbabwe), 'Mutsa' literally means to 'wake up' and at its essence, this is what Meet Mutsa is all about.  We work in London, UK and Mukuni, Zambia to create awareness of the HIV pandemic, primarily in sub-saharan Africa, and generate movements towards its prevention using creative and engaging educational methods. London is home to our fundraising events. Here, our focus is on encouraging people to get up, give, do something and have fun whilst doing so!

I am complicatedly simple, religiously unorthodox, regimentally wild, fanatically balanced, reverently blasphemous, blissfully rowdy and devotedly noncommittal. Put simply, I epitomize ambiguity and diversity.” In my world, not only do I see the grey areas, I also see the entire colour spectrum complete with various shades, hues and tones. As a female, brown skinned Zimbabwean human rights activist, 3rd wave feminist, Afrocentrist, sangoma (in training) and writer I have created this blog as a platform to talk about issues I feel strongly about including the sensitive and controversial (but highly important nonetheless) like same sex marriage & Afrocentricism as well as the fun, sometimes inane or totally random like how Justin Bieber is the Anti-Christ (no, not really), all this while looking at things through a kaleidoscopic lens.  - Read More

I am an adventure seeking individual. I am a lawyer by profession, a human rights advocate by calling and a hopeless romantic at heart. I have worked with different groupings including youths, orphans, women (politicians, activists, refugees, internally displaced), refugees in general and internally displaced persons in the span of my rather short career. I have been told I have a way with words. Indeed I have been writing for ages but all my writings have been on my PC until now.  - Read More
