OUTSTANDING businesswomen were honoured this Friday at the Megafest Women’s Business Awards in recognition of their contribution to national economic development.

The awards ceremony honoured women who have made significant contributions to their respective industries stretching from agriculture,  manufacturing and construction.

Among those rewarded were torch bearers in the construction sector, Ms Joyline Zindaga, who won the Outstanding Woman in Construction award.

“I won Women in Construction of the Year 2024. It represents women who are in the construction industry and taking up the space, which is usually male-dominated,” she said.

Auxillia Dzenga, who received the Female Manager of the Year award, expressed her gratitude and excitement.

“I’m so excited and grateful. I’d like to say thank you to those who nominated me, and that the award is here, we made it,” she said.

Tatiana Ellis, the Outstanding Woman of the Year, emphasized the importance of recognising women’s hard work and achievements.

“It’s so exciting to receive this award; it’s the biggest award for Outstanding Woman of the Year. I believe all women deserve this award because we are hard workers, we are the mothers, and the business people,” she said.

Megafest CEO, Mrs Mercy Matsika, highlighted the organisation’s focus on empowering women in business.

“We are focusing on recognizing women who have been resilient, pushing towards their goals, achieving their objectives in this volatile environment. We aim to give a pat on the back to those women and also to create opportunities for women to network among other women in business and also to create opportunities for empowerment,” she noted.

The Megafest Women’s Business Awards serve as a testament to the achievements and contributions of women in various industries, inspiring others to strive for excellence.
