Meet the limelight-shy woman behind MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa.

Not much is known about Sithokozile Chamisa as she maintains a low profile. Most got to catch a glimpse of her during the election campaign period when her husband introduced her to his supporters during a few rallies. She was first introduced to party supporters in May 2018 at a rally. Chamisa said that unlike other politicians, his family had chosen that Sithokozile stays away from the limelight, instead focusing on their personal family lives.

1. She was born Sithokozile Sidhile and her family is from Chipinge.

2. Contrary to most people's beliefs, Sithokozile is not Ndebele but she is from the  Ndau tribe in Chipinge.

3. She is a lawyer by profession and reportedly works for an NGO, hence her rather distant approach to politics.

4. She met Nelson Chamisa at a birthday dinner for the late former MDC spokesperson Learnmore Jongwe's wife, Rutendo, in 2000 and she was initially not into him. Chamisa courted her for 6 months before she relented to his advances.

5. She is mom to the couple's child, Ashley Chamisa.
