The most ancient African stories, legends, tales and tidbits of cultural heritage were passed down to us through word of mouth. From generation to generation, the history of our triumphs and failures, hopes and fears were passed down through stories that embraced one of the most important tenets of African oral tradition: every story should have a moral.
Her Name Was Zimbabwe: Finding Hope, Strength and Courage through the Struggle is a touching short story and conversation about Zimbabwe. It is a story that celebrates Zimbabwe's beauty, while reflecting on her pain—a story about struggle and finding hope, a story about feeling powerless and finding strength.

Personal experiences lay the base of his rants about romance and relationships and are informed by keen observations: a few heartbreaks and bizarre encounters with love make for some interesting confessions and revelations. Whereas his working experience of over ten years with universities, cultural groups and other organizations and individuals on projects and initiatives focused on diversity, identity and inclusion forms the basis of his social commentary.
Vengesayi balances the intellect in his readings with his ability to connect to with readers and our human experiences on a personal and sometimes, self-deprecating level. Zimbabwean by birth, African oral tradition has left a deep-rooted impression on his writing and storytelling style. It exhibits and paints a picture of in-depth understanding and appreciation of one of the most important tenets of African oral tradition: every story should have a moral.
