CHINHOYI University of Technology (CUT) student, Brian Mushakwe, beat 55 other university students from all over Africa at the IMEX Future Leaders Forum Africa Challenge at the Sandton Convention Centre in South Africa early this week.

Mushakwe, whose presentation on the Victoria Falls was adjudged to be the best at the competition which seeks to identify innovative students which can be used to enhance tourism growth, will represent Africa at the global edition of the event to be held in Germany in May.

The acting dean at CUT's School of Hospitality and Tourism, Nelson Zengeni, has hailed Mushakwe's victory in South Africa as a major boost for the country's tourism.

"We are extremely excited to claim the number one position in this prestigious competition.

"The future of tourism lies with innovative thinking and as CUT, we will continue to play our part in contributing to the national agenda of achieving vision 2030 through innovative tourism.

"We featured Victoria Falls in these competitions, competing against other world-renowned destinations.

"By winning this competition, it shows that if we work together, Zimbabwe indeed can be the best destination in Africa," said Zengeni.
