    MASVINGO RURAL – At least six schools and more than 700 pupils attended a career’s day, the first ever at Tugwane High School in Nyajena three weeks ago.
    Several companies and Government departments were in attendance with their exhibitions and they explained to the rural children what they do and what qualifications were needed for them to join their organisations.
    The Guest of honor at the function was none other than Professor Wiseman Magwa, a former student in the area who rose to become one of Zimbabwe’s most famous professors of languages and education. Professor Magwa who came from that dusty environment is a famed author, a lecturer at the Midlands State University and a former Vice Chancellor at the Reformed Church University.
    Prof Magwa said that nothing is impossible with hard work. He said he came from the same poor environment and went to the same rural school like the students and he is now a Professor.
    “You have to work hard in order   to achieve your goals, I was born here and I went to Garai Primary School but because of hard work here I am as a professor and I have achieved the last certificate of education”, said Magwa.
    Tugwane High head Robinson Matsilele said he was very happy that the event which his school organised was a big success and achieved its goal of enlightening pupils on the many careers that they can choose from.
    “This career program was once meant for bigger and well-off schools. We did not waste time to grab the opportunity when we were recently told that we can also organize a career’s event,” said Matsilele.
    Prof Magwa distributed his writings like Jemedza, Atsunzunya Rega Atsikwe, Kubatwa Chibharo Nedzimwe Mhosva Dzepabonde to schools which attended which are Tugwane, Mapakomere, Mudarikwa, Maweza, Nyabata and Garai.
    Some of the organizations that exhibited at the career’s day were the Zimbabwe National Army, Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management, Zimbabwe Republic Police, the Ministry of Health and Child Care, various media organisations, Great Zimbabwe University, Nyaradzo Funeral Plan, Environmental Management Agency, Ignite Africa, Masvingo Teachers College, Masvingo Polytechnic, Triangle, Pick and Pay, Zimbabwe Prison and Correctional Service, Masvingo City Council and Masvingo Rural District Council.
    A Form 4 pupil Tafadzwa Mauya said the career’s day had widened her scope on the choice of jobs that are available to her.
    “We could not access the career guidance’s held in urban areas but today we are blessed to have it here in the rural area”, said Mauya.
