Talented poet Drea continues to spiritually empower Batswana


One of Botswana’s leading poets, Andreattah Chuma, better known as Drea, says she had a fufilling time in Botswana this past festive season.

Speaking to Showbiz, the poet, who is based in Brussels, Belgium said she is happy about the opportunity she had to interact with Christian women at an event she organised last December called The World Life. The event was held as part of a movement she helped establish to mobilise Christian women. “The main objective of the movement is to encourage Christian women to take the gospel to the streets. I have realised that here are many Christian women out there who hide the fact that they are Christians. It is like they are ashamed to profess their faith. I believe we as Christian women must be excited to tell the world that we are Christians,” explained Drea.

She further said she will host the event again in November this year. She said she decided to change the to it being held in November because people are very busy over the festive season.
