Mrs Chipo Mtasa
by Charles Maregere
As leader of the country's sole fixed-line telecommunication services provider, Mtasa is an inspiration to many women who regard the sky as their only limit. She is an inspiration to young professional women aspiring to break the barriers imposed by patriarchy by assuming leadership positions.
She is an embodiment of evidence to the effect that leadership comes with merit and not one's biological make-up. Mtasa likes to encourage young women and girls to have confidence and self-belief in order to beat the negative stereotypes about women's capabilities.
Focused, consistent and result-oriented are some of the words that best describe the lady who is ready to take on challenges as they came.
Young women and girls, Mtasa says, should look at challenges as opportunities and work to come out of any problems as better people.
In order to remain relevant in the telecoms industry, she says, there is need to develop new mechanisms and innovations because the industry is becoming increasingly dynamic.
Mtasa wants to be known as somebody who stands up for the right things and contributed to the positive development of Zimbabwe as a way of giving other women a chance to believe in their capabilities.business
