It is an honor and a privilege to be honored here, this is a culmination of almost five years of hard work and sacrifice. I dedicate this to everybody who has supported us over the years; my family, friends, business colleagues and my dear friend and brother Kaelou who passed away last month and wasn’t able to enjoy this moment with us. I am  also very thrilled to represent Zimbabwe  and Africa at this level!
