    This man really deserves the award. I wish we had more of his kind in our tertiary institutions. He is innovative, is able to apply theory to practice in solving some of the societal & industrial problems we face, very unassuming & a go-getter. Ramba washinga Quinton!

    why don’t you give it shot in politics? maybe your scientific innovativations will be handy. Or carry out a research on “WHY WE DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH MONEY IN THE GOVT WHILST OUR DIAMOND FIELDS ARE THE THIRD LARGEST FIND THIS CENTURY” what do you think doctor Quinton?

    ‘A prophet is not without honour, save in his own home country.’ (Jesus Christ)
    Why is he recognised outside first when he seems to have done much which is known locally?

    • Musharukwa May 8, 2013 at 3:55 pm #

      Even /morgan was recognized out when Zanu is busy attacking him!!!!!

  16. simon May 8, 2013 at 12:38 pm #

    Or maybe he has been honoured locally and the reporter is not aware or has deliberately not cited it?

  17. Musharukwa May 8, 2013 at 3:57 pm #

    I doubt!!! he is not Like Jonathan Moyo, Tafataona Mahoso, Chivaura, Mararike, Jonathan Kadzura, etc. etc. so he can not be honoured by the crooks!!!!!!
