THERE are not many people who would call being an ambassador a "privileged detour" in their lives. But then Sheila Sisulu is not many people. She is exceptional. Of course, she would probably wave off the description as superfluous to her mission — to ensure people across the world, particularly in Africa and particularly women, have the means to put food on the table for themselves. Given the current milieu, she has her work cut out for her in her job as deputy executive director of hunger solutions for the United Nations (UN) World Food Programme (WFP).
