  • Laiza

    yet another myopic list

    • it is an opinion, suppose

      • Hon

        This was a very good research these people deserve the recognition !!

  • Andrew Mutambara

    This is a fairly good list, everyone on this list deserves this recognition. Good work Infinite Inspiration group

  • Supporter

    Ndafarira panzi Ted Courage Lazaro. Check the quality of picture, sound, programmes, graphics, presentation arrngement etc on Christ tv then you would agree with me the man is talented

  • kiri

    i like this list !! very fair

  • Sharon Mapise

    I have been going thru this compiled list these people they really deserve the recognition most of them started from scratch.. If not them who then???

  • Taurai Chareka

    These people have been doing and are still doing tremendous work and some of them were not heralded but with tangible and remarkable work, new blood is there Dr.Patson Dzamara, Zororo Makamba, Abel Mavura, Rinos Mautsa, Ted Courage Lazaro, check their profiles they deserve it….

  • cde

    next time do thorough research and we need more from Matebeleland coz I saw 3 names only!!

    • sodza

      dont start a tribal thing mate its the list said zimbabwe period

  • Truth

    The only problem is that- these are the guys who are quick to go to the media and showcase what they are trying to do- 70% of that list are just pple with a one room office in town but are quick with the media. E.g as a journalist more people will definitely know about you. There are a lot of other young people who have tangible things and are doing great but are not quick to go to the media. Same applies with the rich list for Zimbas- anaChiyangwa, Chanakira, Shingi Muyeza who have got nothing are quick to be in the media but real guys with cash e.g Zed don’t even want to be showcased by the media.

    • Hon

      This is you with your jealousy having a big room office doesn’t guarantee achievements , some of these guys on the list have those one room offices but doing amazing work that’s it!!! those are kind of leaders that we are looking for in Zimbabwe . They are working hard!!

  • Great list. It’s the first list I agreed with. One of the tech guys I respect is the Tafadzwa Makura. He is a legend. PamaBloggers apa I think we should have our own Zimbabwe Blogger of the Year Awards.
