Zimbabweâ€™s representative to the Big Brother All Stars, Munyaradzi Chidzonga has lived up to his â€˜diamond boyâ€™ status after being presented with a US$20 000 diamond ring and appointed diamond ambassador by an Indian diamond firm.Â
Just a few days after receiving a whooping US$300 000 from a consortium of local business people who felt he had been given a raw deal at the Big Brother Africa All Stars television reality show, Munyaradzi Chidzonga has assumed the role of a diamond ambassador after being bestowed that honour by head of the visiting Indian business delegation from the Surat Rough Diamonds Sourcing company, Mr Ashit Mehta.
â€œGiving Munya a diamond ring confirms the diamond ambassador status,â€ said Mr Mehta.
The diamond boy was presented with a diamond ring worth around US$20 000 by the Indian team as part of the honour of representing the firm.
In his message, Munya expressed gratitude at the honour given to him and urged other youth to effectively participate in the socio-economic transformation of the country.
â€œI canâ€™t describe the feeling at the moment. I didnâ€™t expect that such a thing would happen to me. Well, I will do my best in ensuring that I conduct myself professionally in this role I have been given,â€ Munya said.
Munya had his wish of meeting the President fulfilled when he met Head of State and Government and Commander- in-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, Cde Robert Mugabe on Wednesday.Â
