We neglect our cultural giants when they are alive. Once they are dead everyone competes to mourn and shower praises on them.

The lion of Gutu, Stephen Joel Chifunyise, Shumba Sipambi is no more. At around 18:30 hrs on Monday 5 August 2019, Stephen peacefully succumbed after a brave battle with cancer at his home, surrounded by his family. Seemingly like a great choreography, Stephen “decided to rest.” He was 70 at the time of his death.
For some, joining a fraternity is about recognition, getting your jersey with your pledge name on it with the hopes that it will help them elevate to a new status within the college society. For others, frat life is all about the parties, the drinking, and just doing every small thing in excess for the pure banter. For me though, the whole reason I joined a fraternity, was so that I could feel some sort of inclusion, on a campus where I strongly felt out of place.
College is a big deal, and selecting the right university for you that offers exactly what you want can be very difficult. Not only do you have to think about the tuition, visa processes and the duration of study, but also the type of climate in the region, the demographics of the university as well as just how far you’re willing to move away from home.
