UK based Zimbabwean journalist, Maynard Manyowa, has wished his mother a happy birthday.
Manyowa wrote on his Facebook page :
Judith Vongai Manyowa – my babie, my love, my heartbeat, and my soul, turns 61 today.
Its been 32 years since our story began. We have made so many memories ￼and she is my be all and end all. She has the most beautiful smile. I swear!
I have been privileged to not only see it, but also keep it. See, back in 2001 when my Dad was dying he left me with one instruction – take care of my beautiful rose.
It was such a task for an 11-year-old.
But, in the years that followed his passing, I have been nothing but a great promise-keeper!
I have been her best friend. Her comfort. Her dream. In return she has given me love, wisdom and perspective. She really is a proper woman!
Happy Birthday Mum.
I love you.
Your grandkids love you.
