BUSINESS excellence and innovation runs in the Moyo family as evidenced by Chitungwiza Central Hospital’s Chief Executive Officer Dr Obadiah Moyo who is a multiple award winner and Mrs Lucy Moyo who also walked away with a prestigious award which was presented to her at a glitzy ceremony held at a hotel in the capital on 25 Septem-ber 2017.
Their daughter Ashley is an upcoming young artist who is talented and her music was a hit internationally.
“I think having a pure heart, generosity, hard work and being obedient to God’s call made my business a suc-cess,” said Mrs Moyo.
Mrs Moyo runs a very successful beauty spa and salon called KADS installed with state of the art equipment which caters for both females and males. The beauty salon is located in Mt Pleasant.
When the adjudicators of the business awards visit-ed KADS salon which is part of the Council’s assessment process of nominated businesses before they come up with the decision of awarding recipients, there was no doubt that Mrs Moyo deserved the award.
The guest of honour Minister in Vice President Mphoko’s office Tabeth Kanengoni Malinga highly com-mended the winners for running businesses which are help-ing to revive the Zimbabwean economy.
She said: “I thank you for inviting me to give the awards. We always read about them.We always appreciated the work our business community does especially under such harsh conditions. And still we to take time to celebrate their success not just big businesses but also small business-es being run by young people or women and everybody who is trying to make a mark in Zimbabwe.”
Mrs Moyo was described by people who know her better as a devoted Christian who also leads a big prayer group of women in Harare. Their main thrust is sharing the scriptures which they read a chapter at a time. When they meet they discuss and have prayer ses-sions for spiritual guidance including their families.
Indeed Mrs Moyo is that kind of a woman who was de-scribed in Proverbs 31 verse 13 which says, “She see-keth wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands” Harare and Northern Business Awards were introduced by Mr Enrico Sibanda as a way of celebrat-ing the success of individuals and companies who have excelled in their disciplines.
The business awards epitomize the core values of a successful business leader, strength, innovation, ingenuity, knowledge and foresight, values that are im-perative to carving out powerful businesses and organi-zations in the global economy, spread across various categories and industry domains. “We honour leaders who have contributed and shaped the Zimbabwean economy. Today we salute the leaders and organisations in Zimbabwe for their contin-ued commitment to leadership excellence, developing best practices and innovative strategies, “said awards chairperson Dr. Enrico Sibanda.
He went on to say that it was important to ap-preciate the good work done by individuals who work hard to improve Zimbabwe.
Various captains of industry and leaders from other spheres of influence have been recipients of the business awards. The awards are presented each year to personalities, institutions and corporates who, in the opinion of the Business Council, have made outstanding contribution to the development of the Zimbabwean economy.
The ceremony was attended by captains of industries from both public and private sectors. It was great honour for Mrs Moyo to be among the high-profile companies in Zimbabwe.
The ceremony was a joyous occasion which saw everyone present enjoying and dancing to mu-sic. The director of ceremony was Vicki Mlilo who spiced the event with side-splitting jokes in between the proceedings.
Gospel artist Mudiwa Mutandwa provided entertainment. He narrated his life and how he eventual-ly became a holder of a Masters’ degree in Finance but later realized that his talent was in music and then pur-sued a career in gospel music. He appreciated the degree he has in accounts in that it helps him in managing his finances. Mudiwa was also among the winners.
Some of the winners were Herentals College, Impala Car Hire, Natprint, Cornway College, Daily News, Nash Paints, Wise Owl college and ZIMDEF.Leave a reply
