I knew there was something not quite right about Dumi the very first time I ever laid eyes on him. The problem was, I just couldn’t tell what it was. Thank God for that.
There was a time that I was reputed to be the best hairdresser in Harare, which meant the best in the whole country.
Amai Ndoro was the fussiest customer to ever grace a salon and she would not let any ordinary kiya-kiya touch her hair. Having sampled all the salons in Harare – and rejected them all – she settled on ours.
I wonder why the narrator is so glad that they couldn’t tell what it was that was so wrong about Dumi.
I am intrigued to know what Dumi’s secret was.
I am looking forward to finding out all the gossip from this hair salon … hairdressers know all the juciest gossip and there is bound to be some humour as well!
