Expelled student turns to music. Consults sangomas for luck charms. A 19-year-old female student who was expelled from school for unbecoming behaviour has turned to music.
Gracious Sithole, who hails from Zvishavane, said she was devastated when she was expelled from school after she was found guilty of having ‘love affairs’ at school.
The incident dented her reputation as society labelled her a prostitute. “My life was in a bad state as I was involved in controversial relationships. “Last year when I was in Form 6, I was expelled from school because I was found having a love affair at school.
“I have been having a bad time with my parents since then. “I became so desperate in my life and I then started to consult traditional healers (sangomas). “Ndanga ndatova munhu wemishonga and my behaviour had changed for the worst,” she said.
She added: “Even though when I was now believing in traditional belief I continued to write songs. “Masongs aingotumirwa, I had a spirit which was in and my life was something else.” She also told this publication that all these things affected her mentally and she then got traumatised.
“The situation affected me and I became traumatised to the level that I almost gave up to this life. “Everyone started calling sort of names and I then felt like an outcast in the society.
“I lost my identity through my past,” she said. Gracious who is the last born in the family of five admitted the ‘the bad girl’ tag but has vowed to give her life to God.
“After several counsellors, pastors and Verenga Empire Entertainment knocked sense in my head that’s when i got assurance that I still have a lot to offer in life. “With my undesirable behaviour I became the worst daughter in the family and I shocked my father who is a choir leader at church.”
In a bid to gain confidence Gracious enrolled with Women University in Africa where she is studying Social Work. “After such a shameful experience I then decided to do Social Work so that I can motivate other people who are going through such an experience.
