Top Hollywood superstar Thandie Newton who has starred in movies like Mission Impossible and Pursuit of Happiness has joined the number of global citizens who have been emotionally affected by the economic melt down and sad state of affairs in the the country.
Newton has shed a tear for her motherland having been born by a Zimbabwean mother Nyasha Jombe.
She registered her sorrow on micro-blogging site twitter where she expressed her heavy heart as a result of the going-on in the country.
Thandie’s nationality has been subject to great conjecture with some circles of the South African media claiming that he mother was of South African origin.
However, it was established that Thandie was born in London to Nyasha, a health-care worker from the Shona tribe, and Nick Newton, a British lab technician.
She lived in Zambia until political unrest caused her family to move back to the United Kingdom. She then lived in Cornwall in the southwest of Britain until the age of 11. At that time she enrolled in London’s Art Educational School, where she studied modern dance. However, a back injury forced her to quit dancing.
She then moved to Los Angeles, California, to pursue acting and that is where she made a major breakthrough into the bright lights of Hollywood.
Thandie’s concerns is clear testimony that the crisis in the counter has caught world attention and President Mnangagwa is under pressure to stabilise the situation.
He has since embarked on a policy of re-engagement with previously hostile countries and this has seen him clinching a number of mega-deals which has however proven to be not enough at this particular juncture.
