It all started in November 2009 during TBA field course in the dry deciduous forests in Kirindy, Madagascar. From a group of 18 students from over 10 different nationalities, Tendai from Zimbabwe and Zingfa from Nigeria, in addition to gaining
knowledge in ecological disciplines, field techniques as well as improving their research and academic goals, also found love. Like the giant and hardy Baobab trees in Kirindy, the love seed planted in Madagascar defied distance and nationality and finally blossomed in Cape Town, South Africa where the two are currently based. Tendai is a Post-doctoral fellow at the Stellenbosch University after finishing her PhD earlier this year and Zingfa is at the University of Cape Town doing his PhD. On Saturday 30th August 2014, Tendai and Zingfa got married according to the African traditions.
“Our story will never be complete without TBA and we remain forever thankful for the opportunity that TBA gave us to go on this course where Tendai and I found each other and we found the gift of love. We are now committed to each other and a promise to a life of love, friendship and companionship”.
Congratulations from TBA family and we wish you a happy marriage!
