Think highly of yourself

AS Zimbabweans, we need to shun the mentality of inferiority complex by being proud of who we are as a people. Our history was written by our colonisers and hence they deliberately left out our past achievements. The truth of the matter is that Zimbabweans have...

An Ambassador’s promising start
