She worked for East Africa Television Ltd in Tanzania as a breakfast show presenter and as an English news editor for the same broadcaster. “FUN” fact, she speaks four languages fluently English, Shona, Ndebele and Swahili.

However, she faced numerous struggles along the way including; pricing issues, quality concerns, poor financial management skills
