Garikai Mafirakureva is based in Chiredzi in Masvingo Province, Zimbabwe. I am an experienced journalist and former Editor of The Mirror newspaper which is headquartered in Masvingo town. I speak English and Shona fluently, and have experience in covering the latest political events, business, environmental, entertainment as well as unearthing corrupt activities. I am consistent when it comes to creating and developing stories and ideas for print, editing, writing and web-based projects. I am also able to pick a story at a moment's notice and meet tight deadlines.
Corruption so deep rooted in Zimbabwean institutions including local government. This led to the withdrawal of UNICEF from a water project in which they had injected $646 000.
Superstitious beliefs still part of Zimbabwean culture

There are several stories on The Mirror website, including investigative stories that I wrote on police corruption, money laundering, music and sport.
