Dr Felicia Munjaidi, who is responsible for tourism at the embassy in London, faced challenging experiences trying to bring visitors to Zimbabwe at the height of the political stand-off between Harare and the West.

Speaking at the Zimbabwe Achievers Awards (ZAA) England edition, Dr Munjaidi said there were moments when she was spat at, but she never hit the panic button under her desk to report the abuse to the police.

She did not despair or give up and continued to promote Zimbabwe as a remarkable tourism destination with unique attractions as well as a warm and welcoming people.

Today, that perseverance is reaping rich rewards, and the UK has again become a key tourism source market for Zimbabwe.



Saturday’s awards gala dinner was also attended by a business delegation that had travelled from Harare for the two-day Zimbabwe Capital Markets and Investment Indaba also held in London on Thursday and Friday.
