A UK based company SPE Media has in partnership with Dindingwe Media (ZW) released a list of 10 influential young Zimbabweans born after 1980, ahead of Zimbabwe’s 35th Independence Commemorations with the theme 1980 – So Far So Good.
The list dubbed “10 Independence Ngoda Game-Changers under 35” is meant to celebrate the achievements of an Independent Zimbabwe, under black majority rule.
The Term Ngoda, is native Shona for rough diamond. The under 35s listed here are game changers, dreamers, trail blazers and architects of a new progressive Zimbabwe Dream. Post Independent Zimbabwe has produced some bright young, patriotic minds who are making the present and shaping the future in various ways, despite the difficult circumstances including but not limited to economic sanctions imposed by western Countries.
Ngoda Business is a UK established brand of SPE Media. As Zimbabwe commemorates its 35th Independence Anniversary, we saw it fit to do an analysis of some of the achievements made since Independence.
