Manicaland schools dominate Cerevita National Debate


TWO Manicaland schools — Marist Nyanga High and Krister Mambo — stormed into the final of the Nestlé Cerevita High Schools National Debate after emerging winners in two separate categories in the semi finals held at Prince Edward High School in Harare on Friday.


Marist, who emerged winners in the junior category, will battle it out with Monte Casino while Kriste Mambo meet Kutama High School in the seniors’ final category.

The final will be held on October 10 in Masvingo.

The debate was structured in such a way that the junior and the senior categories had two sessions each.

In the first session, Marist Nyanga emerged winners while Bradley High School were runners up.

The other juniors’ session saw Monte Casino winning the first prize without competition as their opponents Regina Mundi failed to turn up for the event.
Nicholas Marimo of Marist Nyanga was voted the best speaker from all the two sessions.

The seniors’ sessions saw Kutama High School claiming first position beating Sizane High School who were runners up. In the second session, Kriste Mambo claimed the first spot ahead of Kwekwe High.

Mpoyana Mayangamautse of Kriste Mambo was voted the best speaker from both senior sessions.

Addressing guests after the event, Cerevita brand manager Sizile Nyathi Dhlamini said Nestlé had decided to bankroll the national schools debate as part of its commitment to supporting education and cognitive development in Zimbabwe.

“The programme is being sponsored to the tune of $25 000 and this sponsorship package will be extended for three years reviewed yearly. The main idea behind the sponsorship is to encourage children to eat healthy through having a healthy Cerevita breakfast and be able to participate in various school activities such as sports and of course debates,” Dhlamini said.
