Being a well-seasoned and experienced industrialist, Mr Mugabe has on countless times been awarded various private sector leadership accolades from reputable organisations such as Zimbabwe National Chamber of Commerce (ZNCC), MEGAFEST and Zimbabwe Institute of Management, to mention but a few.
He said being recognised by such institutes signalled the growth of business in the country.
