‘Yes you heard me! I’m planning on going back home next year…’

‘But why Nige? Bob’s not dead yet and who knows what will happen with that Zim economy? Wait a minute Nige, are your papers in order’?

I know a big part of me just wanted to be closer to the family. Then of course my good friend and brother Shingi and I were working on a business which, when launched is based in Zimbabwe (more details of that as we journey over the next few months). So naturally my life took an interesting direction and I was now announcing this very decision to that good close-knit group of friends I mentioned earlier. Read more
