PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa was awarded the Buy Zimbabwe Champion of the Decade Award for utmost dedication to the cause of promoting the production and consumption of local products at the organisation's 10th-anniversary awards held in the capital last Friday.

The citation for the award said "President Mnangagwa has been at the forefront of driving local content and exhibited passion, resilience and leadership. Under his guidance, local products have regained pride of place on our supermarket shelves and Zimbabweans have demonstrated a preference for local goods and services which continue to increase in quality and output."

Speaking at the event, Buy Zimbabwe chairman Munyaradzi Hwengwere said Mnangagwa has been a champion in the promotion of local content.

"He has been a friend, mentor and guiding hand to Buy Zimbabwe. Over the years, he has been the guest of honour on three occasions, including making it his first official engagement in a new and even more demanding role," he said.

"He has brought urgency and shaped a strong narrative and work ethos in his drive for Zimbabwe to attain an upper middle income status by 2030."

Innscor Group scooped the Best Company of the Decade Award while Mazoe was adjudged to be the Best Product of the Decade.
