Manicaland:The Province of Opportunities

Posted by rebuildsakubva on May 5, 2015 at 12:50 AM

I stumbled upon this and l thought l should share.

NTERESTING STUFF.

"Please dont get me wrong.It is only that

Manicaland has scored many firsts.

For an example:-

The first black university graduate was Gedion

Mhlanga from Manicaland.

The first black woman university graduate was

Sarah Kachingwe(nee Chavhunduka) Manicaland.

The First black lawyer was Hebert Chitepo

Manicaland.The first black Medical Doctor was

Samuel Parirenyatwa Manicaland.

The first black woman medical Doctor was and is

Dr Nyamwanza wife to Dr Iben Makonese

Manicaland.

The first black veterinary doctor was Dexter

Chavhunduka-Manicaland. The first black

architect was from Nyautare in Nyanga

Manicaland.

The first black medical doctor to qualify as a war

surgion and to undergo full mulitary training was

Dr Mudzingwa from Manicaland he was with

ZPRA.Founder of ZANU Ndabaningi Sithole, chikomana chepaGanga apo, kwaTuzuka then.

The best results at grade 7 O and A levels

country wide usually come from Manicaland and

occassionally from a school like Monte Casino in

Macheke which on the Manicaland boarder.

BUT INTERESTINGLY ZANU PF GOVERNMENT

DOES NOT WANT TO SET UP A STATE

UNIVERSITY IN MANICALAND when the list of

many firsts scored by people from Manicaland is

endless.

Imagine the first black Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe

is Kombo Moyana from Manicaland, the first person (White, Black or Pink) in Southern and Central Africa to graduate with a PhD in Law was Edson Sithole from Manicaland; the first Zimbabwean to graduate from Harvard with a PhD in law was Zvobgo from Manicaland (not Masvingo! As many think); the first Zimbabwean to graduate with a PhD in Law from Cambridge University and being the best student in the Commonwealth was Lovemore Madhuku from Manicaland; the first Zimbabwean to built and own the largest tobacco auction floor in the world was Roger Boka from Manicaland; the first secretary of defence in the Dare reChimurenga - of the Zanla forces which was the lead liberation army in Zimbabwe was Mataure from Manicaland, the first black Zimbabwean women to be a professor is Rudo Gaidzanwa from Manicaland; the first black Zimbabwean to be a professor in Sociology was Gordon Chavunduka from Manicaland; the first Zimbabwean to stage a one man demonstration against oppression and foreign domination was Dambudzo Marechera from Manicaland; the first black speaker of Zimbabwe is Didymus Mutasa from Manicaland, Zimbabwean longest serving political prisoner (21 years) was Maurice Nyagumbo from Manicaland etc etc..."

What do you think? Interesting for me cause I've

always had a soft spot for Manicaland.

Be proud to.be a Samanyika.
