Zimbabwe Achievers Awards International (ZAA) has extended it borders further with the launching of the ZAA Canada edition which was held last week at Radisson Hotel in Edmonton in a glamorous ceremony that celebrated the diverse array of Zimbabwean achievers in the North American country.
The Inaugural ZAA Canada Awards Gala further improved on the efforts of the international awards brand to honor and celebrate Zimbabweans who are doing inspiring works and achievements around the globe.
ZAA Canada Country Director Simba Sithole salutes the successful event and paid glowing tribute to the Zimbabwe diaspora community in Canada for their impact in representing the country.
“This is a record-setting ceremony today as we honor our community organizations and brothers and sisters here in Canada who have been working tirelessly in holding communities and bringing pride and honor on the country,” he said.
“This is just but the starting of bigger things for us as a whole and we believe that our communities will progress with their impressive work”.
The Canada edition which is the fifth addition to the franchise was attended by most of the leading figures in the diaspora business and social circles who included popular winners such as musician Kay L, MC Bonde and entrepreneur Lillian Cox to mention a few.
The Chairman’s Honorary Awards for contributions and services were also awarded to the pioneering class of the Canada edition such as Solomon Choga and Joseph Mugodo among others.
ZAA International founder and Chairman Conrad Mwanza also spoke of his excitement at the first edition.
“We are delighted to introduce the Canada community to our growing family and extend congratulations to all nominees and winners and everyone who is working effortlessly to make the world a better place.”
“This is part of our vision and wishes to recognize and celebrate individuals, organizations, businesses, and initiatives that represent the excellence and innovation that makes us all truly proud to be a Zimbabwean,” he said.
This was the third ceremony that ZAA had organized this year after successful runs in South Africa and the UK in April and May, respectively.
