The awards are meant to celebrate Zimbabweans, who have made sacrifices without expecting grand external rewards, “in favour of simply doing what the people around them need the most”.
Ziyambi said the initiative, aimed at recognising outstanding citizens, is being run by AMH in partnership with the City of Harare, AB Communications’ ZiFM Stereo, ZB Bank, CBZ, World Vision and DHL, among others.
To celebrate these individuals, AMH through the flagship NewsDay brand invited nominations from Zimbabweans through email, social media and newspaper fill-in forms.
Every year, NewsDay will be hosting the 100 Great Zimbabweans Awards ceremony to honour the country’s outstanding citizens through the celebration of ordinary people, who have made significant contributions in their communities.
Six independent adjudicators were invited to give the much-needed integrity impetus and endorsed by a reputable auditing firm.
“There have been some overwhelming responses since we launched our inaugural 100 Great Zimbabwean nominations. It’s something that we have just started and we are anticipating making it an annual event by next year,” she said.
