Trust Khosa

MOTIVATIONAL speaker and writer, Desmond Chikamhi, says tough upbringing and broken family fibre inspired him to become a writer.

The executive director of World Life Changers shared his story in the book titled “Yes You  Can” which was launched in the capital last weekend.

The launch coincided with his 31st birthday celebrations on the same night.

Chikamhi’s book gives hope to those in despair as he tackles serious issues set to inspire other people who had a tough upbringing.

Chikamhi, who was reunited with his mother after 12 years, said it was hard being raised by close relatives.

“My mother left us when I was four years old and I only got to be reunited with her after 12 years.

“You can imagine the pain that I went through but life still goes on.”

A preacher and researcher, Chikamhi added:

“In my case, this book is a painkiller to myself since I am chronicling the tough journey I went through.

“I am also dedicating this book to my late father, who always wished me the best in life.

“I don’t know if I could have achieved anything without my father.”

His launch turned into a night of celebration as gospel star, Sabastian Magacha, performed at the event.

Mutare-based actor Ma Very Very, poet Fire Colosso and Sekuru Zvambu also graced the occasion.
