Black Mambas #4

It was a huge privilege to be invited to the local hospital where one of the mambas gave birth to a baby boy. The strong ties formed amongst these women is clear to see. They literally trust each other with their lives and the respect, strength and loyalty I witnessed is humbling.

I have 16 days to immerse myself amongst the mambas, go on patrol with them, conduct interviews to try and get to the ‘why’ of their stories. I also hope to visit their village(s) and see the bigger picture around the work they do. What do their families and communities think and feel about their work?
