Bothwell Parirenyatwa

3 Mins read

Meet our Spotlight Bothwell Parirenyatwa. A young dynamic Zimbabwean physiotherapist who currently owns his own practice in Swaziland.
_______
I grew up in Sunningdale 1, Harare. From a young age I was always interested in being part of the healthcare system. One day while I was visiting my mother who was and still works at Parirenyatwa Hospital, I was inspired by the work I saw being done by a physiotherapist who was assisting a patient walk. The look of gratitude, on the patients face as they took their first few steps from what looked like a major injury, is something one could never forget.
________
I went to University of Zimbabwe for my tertiary where I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Physiotherapy in 2010. As there were not too many job opportunities in Zimbabwe after I graduated, I had to think out the box and try and put the new skills to good use.
___________
In 2013 I then decided to try my options in Swaziland. I was employed as a physiotherapist at Preety Daya Physiotherapy Practice. My Zim-Hustle mentality kicked in a year later where I started a second job at a nursing home (Hope House) and convinced them that Physiotherapy services where essential. Hope House will go down as one of my greatest achievements because in the 5 years I worked there the physiotherapy department went from a single room to a fully fledged gym where clients from all over would come to for Physiotherapy services. By the end of 2018 the gym got bigger, with more and more clients coming in, working only in the evenings felt like underutilization of the facilities. I I therefore had to leave my beloved baby The Hope House Physiotherapy Department.
_______
2019 must have been the most trying year in my life. I had just left my second job and the practice I had been working for, for the past 7 years was being sold.Through all this I kept my head up high. The prospect for a foreigner buying a company seemed so unreal. However after knocking tirelessly on every single door in search of money to buy a company I finally got my big break. 2019 changed my life..
