Zimbabwe Achievers Awards (ZAA) last night held their first virtual awards ceremony for the combined ZAA USA-Canada editions in an event sponsored by WorldRemit held across various online platforms.

The combined event was held virtually in adherence to regulations regarding public gatherings due to Covid-19 and saw Zimbabwean achievers based in the USA and Canada get honored for their exploits in their respective country editions.

“We are so proud of the achievements of Zimbabweans who keep defying odds and raising the flag wherever they are in the world. As we celebrate and honour those in the USA and Canada, we also salute the efforts of every achiever around the world doing their best especially in such trying times. Let us celebrate each other as always,” said ZAA Chairman Conrad Mwanza.
