Former Capitalk 100.4 FM presenter Nyasha K Mutizwa recently set her sight on television broadcasting and has joined Congo-based television network Africa News. The 25-year-old former host of the Weekend Crunch, The Reboot, and producer of The Capital Crunch has not only started a career in television journalism but has moved and started a new adventure in the coastal town of Pointe Noire in the francophone country of Congo, Brazzaville.  


She becomes the first Zimbabwean to be recruited by Africa News television network and is currently the only representative from Southern Africa.


In an interview with Capitalk FM News soon after her arrival in Congo, Nyasha K described the new opportunity as a mixed bag of adventure.


“What a different experience from working in my home country. We usually do not appreciate how developed Zimbabwe is in terms of infrastructure until we get to other countries. Here they also have power cuts, water cuts and the most shocking one for me was internet cuts!


“My two biggest issues so far is trying to find food and trying to recover all my French notes from high school. Other than that I am loving the new experience,” she said.


Nyasha K completed her primary and high school education at the Dominican Convent in Harare. She then moved to Hertfordshire University in the UK where she obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Law and Media Cultures. She went on to study her Legal Practice Course at BPP Law School in Leeds, where she majored in Media and Entertainment Law, Intellectual Property and Advanced Commercial Litigation.


After a short stint at a few law firms in the United Kingdom, Nyasha  K returned to Zimbabwe in the hope of establishing herself in her home country by practicing Zimbabwean Law.


“When I came back to Zimbabwe I didn’t know that God had other plans for me. I ended up being part of the team chosen to work at Capitalk 100.4 FM, out of the thousands that auditioned in 2016. Capitalk100. FM introduced me to the broadcast world and I will forever be grateful for that experience,” said Nyasha K.


She added: “What I really miss is the interaction with the listeners about issues that were affecting people in Harare. I will continue with the interaction on social media and intend to take the Harare story to the continent.”


Not only is Nyasha K a force to reckon with in the broadcast realm but also in entertainment. She is recognized in the theatre world as a vocal powerhouse and recently clinched the AFDIS Award of Excellence for her musical performance in the 2017 Reps production of “A Taste of the 80’s.”  Before going to the Congo she played the principal role of Sarabi in the outselling stage production and Zimbabwean rendition of “The Lion King.”
