I stumbled upon this and l thought l should share.
"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
The first black veterinary doctor was Dexter
Chavhunduka-Manicaland. The first black
architect was from Nyautare in Nyanga
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
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.
