Stella's Story. My Struggle, My life is a story by Stella Madzimbamuto, about her life. Born and bred in District Six of Cape Town, and later training as a nurse at McCord's Hospital in Durban, Stella was set for a reasonably comfortable life as a state registered nurse in South Africa. Stella, however, chose a less obvious route. She met and later married her husband Daniel Madzimbamuto, who came from the then Southern Rhodesia. Spurred by the memory of her step-grandfather, who had wished to go on a Christian mission to Southern Rhodesia, Stella welcomed the opportunity to see her husband's home. From that point on, the story of Stella Madzimbamuto's life is abounding with twists and turns that weave a thread through the history of the subcontinent. From the humble beginnings in District Six in the 1930s, to challenging the legality of the Rhodesian Government at Her Majesty's Privy Council, Crown Court of the British Empire in the 1960s, as well as tending to an illustrious nursing career, Stella Madzimbamuto has left an indelible mark not only in international legal history, but also in the hearts and minds of those she met along the way.
