“If yours actions inspire others to dream more, learn more ,do more and become more , you are a leader” -John Quincy Adams
This list has been compiled by Gumiguru Inc.., a Harare based Motivation & Consultancy Company. The Inaugural list was published as IIG 40 Under 30 Emerging Leaders.
Gumiguru 40 under 30 emerging leaders is an annual list of 40 emerging Zimbabwean leaders who are 30 years old or below.
The purpose of the list according to SimbaNyamadzawo, Inspirational speaker and Author of Leadership Wisdom who is the founder of Gumiguru Inc…, is to formally recognize, acknowledge and celebrate young Zimbabweans who are movers and shakers in what they are doing.
“As an organization we have decided to acknowledge, honor and celebrate some of the young game changers, thought-leaders, opinion shapers, movers and shakers. We hope the list will challenge and inspire other young people to emulate and learn one or two from the listed contemporaries.” said Simba Nyamadzawo who was spearheading the compilation of the list.
This list comprises of 40 people born after 31 December 1985 and doing remarkable, notable or unique work worth recognizing and emulating.
The names were drawn from various sources including nominations from individuals and organizations that work closely with the youths.
We do appreciate that there are a lot of young people doing remarkable work across the nation but for the purpose of this list we decided to limit the number to 40 leaders only. Individuals who have been listed in the preceding years will not be listed again. The class of 2015 had Dr. Patson Dzamara, Ruvheneko Parirenyatwa, Charles Manyuchi, Jah Prayzah, Advocate Fadzayi Mahere, Maud Chifamba just to name a few.
This list is arranged in alphabetical order.
