Meet Zimbabwe’s Queens of Media on DIVAS inc

DIVA CoverIt is always a breath of fresh air having passionate individuals that go out there and grab what is theirs. Definitely, ZiFMs LochNation, Ruvheneko Parirenyatwa and Misred have marked their influence on Zimbabwe’s media. When you talk radio, print and television, you will not finish a conversation without either of the ladies being mentioned. Personally, I am a big fan and I respect any woman who stands up, fight through her ambitions and conquers right through. My growing up with a single parent, that individual being my mother, has moulded me into a young man who has so much respect for Women KINGS. Together, LochNation, Ruvheneko Parirenyatwa & Misred cover DIVAS Inc, a Zimbabwean publication which is now in stores across the nation. This should be one of the richest Media & Female covers to have come out of Zimbabwe of late.
