Patrick Shumba Mutukwa: Thank you for having me. I am the 3rd born out of a family of 6. Born at the UTH hospital in Lusaka Zambia. Growing up in ZAF Lusaka was great except the friends you grew up with would eventually move to a different city as soon as their parents retired. It was hard keeping friends as a kid. As a result of that, my siblings became my best friends.
We moved to Dambwa, Livingstone when I was in the 6th grade. Life had to start all over again.Making new friends and starting a new way of life. My dad would eventually pass away when I was in the 9th grade leaving behind a widow who was a housewife for most of her life.
We struggled a lot. The life we knew turned upside down. It wasn’t uncommon to go days without food. Despite all of this, we bonded together as a family and also fell in love with the community.
My first stage experience was at Future Hope Church where I was an usher and a worship leader. It also helped that I was a Head Boy at Linda High School in 2001 as well as the Debate Club President.
