Zimfest Live 2019
The idea came about when Ros ‘Chairman Mao’ Smith from Harare (a nickname that came about due to her never being seen without a thick red book which was essentially the Zimfest Bible) basically said: “I know, let’s have a beer-fest”! Zimbabweans, beer, braai (bbq), sun – well hopefully on Mud Island. It really was a no brainer. So they started this thing with 700 of our beautiful countrymen and women on a field behind a prison in Wandsworth South West London in a celebration that has come to feature a Rugby Sevens tournament, 5 a side football, Cricket Six’s and an array of fun for the whole family in what is now known to be one of the friendliest events in London.
