PRETORIA - Coin manufacturer Cape Mint on Thursday honoured flamboyant Zimbabwean businessman Genius Kadungure in Cape Town.
The minting company gifted Kadungure with a huge, gold-embossed medal made by its master engravers "for inspiring hope to young entrepreneurs on the continent".
The company said it was honouring Africans who were impacting on people beyond their own communities.
Two weeks ago, Cape Mint's general manager, Howard Steenkamp, travelled to Namibia and presented the country's founding father, former president Dr. Sam Nujoma, with a gift "for successfully leading his country for 15 years since its independence".
Before the Rugby World Cup kicked off in Japan, the company announced that it has signed a three-year deal with South African Rugby Union’s (SARU) licensing agent, Signet, to produce commemorative Springboks Invictus Medallions honouring South Africa's national rugby team, which has now progressed to the finals of the tournament.
