The ceremony brought together the best performers from each sector acting in diverse ways to put the country on the global map for industrialisation and development.
Eng Edward Mukaratirwa expressed gratitude to God and to Council for their hard work, perseverance and commitment to success for the City of Masvingo brand.
He also expressed his appreciation to the organisers for such an event aimed at acknowledging performance in the region, who have and still contribute to development and growth of the country’s economy.
Eng. Mukaratirwa, admonished that “as individuals our visions must always be greater than ourselves; because if that is not the case, we don’t have a vision”.
According to him, “Whatever vision we have must capture the future of our local authority, of our nation, of our continent and of humanity; and if it doesn’t, then it is a very small vision.
“We need to step from our comfort zones and turn our lemons into lemonade. This is the evidence that we have done this while others lamented, complained and perhaps went to sleep. The sleepless nights, efforts, and hard work have birthed great rewards” he said.
The award is yet another one in the overflowing bag of icon on the helm of City of Masvingo.
