Poem: Africa's Shining Star

08 Dec 2022 at 21:57hrs | Views
A selfless, fearless human rights icon

For many a girl child, she is a beacon
Considered one of the bravest lawyers in Africa
For her courage she has received credit beyond Africa  
She has borne the brunt of harassment and physical assault
A heroine who champions free speech on those who default  
As a human rights defender, she has given potent violators hell
Arrested, detained, barred, Beatrice Mtetwa's stars shine and swell
