“HARARE – NOVEMBER 21, 2016 – Nyaminyami FM has appointed journalist Maxton Kanhema as its Station Officer with effect from November 16.
Kanhema is a seasoned media practitioner having spent time at SFM before joining the then Newsnet as a Business Reporter. He has extensively worked in the tourism sector where he actively marketed Kariba as a tourism destination of choice.
In 2008 he coordinated a project to commemorate the resort town’s golden jubilee and was able to bring together more than six government ministries and the Kariba community through this initiative.
Kanhema; who holds a BSc Honors degree in Journalism and Media Studies from the National University of Science and Technology (NUST); has also hosted the Kariba Business Expo for the past six years; bringing business players from across the country to Kariba. The expos have also been used as the gateway to Kariba by those wishing to invest in the town.
His vision is to see Kariba competing with the rest of the world in every aspect of life.
“It is my hope that we will be able to use the power of radio to unite people, bring investment to Kariba and to make Kariba the prime tourist destination in Zimbabwe.
“Nyaminyami FM belongs to the people of Kariba. It is the views and aspirations of the people of Kariba that will define the station,” he said.
Kanhema expressed excitement about working with the Kariba community; saying with the community’s involvement; the station would become a success story.”
