The Zimbabwean flag has been flying all over the world for the longest time. The talent and ability in most Zimbabweans is evident in their exploits and impact in foreign lands. The Zimbabwean diaspora community is one that is composed of many diverse stories but what is undeniable is the flair for excellence in many of them.

ZimAbroad Magazine presents to you the list of 50 UK-Based Zimbabweans You Should Know. Their influence and expertise cuts across the fields of sport, business, entrepreneurship, community, philanthropy and many more. Some of the people are prominent newsmakers and some often fly under the radar of the greater public, but all of them contribute to the wildly impressive Zimbabwean success story abroad.

As always the list is not exhaustive and is but a tip of the iceberg of all the flagbearers and amazing ambassadors of our great country in foreign lands.
