“We want it to be noted that our anchor Sponsor has chosen to remain anonymous, secondly we have a number of sponsors that have come on board with different packages of sponsorship,” he added.
However, some of the revealed sponsors include Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC), Zimbabwe Agriculture Society (ZAS), Bella Marie, First Legal Choice, ZLG, Pro Air, Air Zimbabwe and Angels Hair.
The event was officiated by the Guest of Honour and newly appointed Minister of Tourism and Hospitality Industry Honourable Edgar Mbwembwe his Deputy AnastanciaNdhlovu and Minister of State for Harare Metropolitan Hon. Mirriam Chikukwa.
