Africa's Shining Star

By Ndaba Sibanda

Africa's Shining Star

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
