Mpilo Central Hospital, Bulawayo, Zimbabwe
|Known for||Acted as Ntokozo in the popular local drama Amakorokoza|
Born on April 11, 1968 at Mpilo Central Hospital, Makulumo grew up in Barbourfields suburb. After high school, she returned to Bulawayo Polytechnic to study Business Studies. Thereafter, she worked at Meikles Departmental Store in Bulawayo from 1988 to 1995 where she met her husband Cuthbert, who is now self-employed. She also met veteran actress Sarah Mpofu - Sibanda who worked at the store. The two later on became more than friends as they now relate as sisters.
FOR 18 years, Precious Makulumo has been toiling on Zimbabwe’s silver screen, shooting to prominence as swift tongued Ntokozo from the popular 2002 local drama, Amakorokoza. She credited William Nyandoro for being the best director who brought out the character of Ntokozo out of her. So good was her performance of Ntokozo’s character that people she met on the streets thought she was a ruthless woman who was a spoilt brat.
Since her Amakorokoza days, many people wondered what had become of her. Makulumo said after Amakorokoza she took up acting full time. She has acted in drama series Tshuz Mazkhethela by Patrick Mabhena, Insuku Zokugcina by Raisedon Baya and Isipho Sami by Thembelihle Moyo. She has also acted in movies that include The Gentleman by Munyaradzi Chidzonga and Nomhle by Thembie Moyo. Recently, she featured on Zambezi Magic’s movies, Cheaters and Another Wedding by Kudzie Chikomo’s Multi Media Productions and Liabilities of Love by Lenny Sibanda’s Yasibo Productions.
