Who is Team Mandebvu

Team Mandebvu was essentially made of one individual Kenny Gasa, the video editor, while there has been a writer whom is not named, both of whom are Zimbabweans that are now based in the UK. Gasa has been making videos for a while now and has taken a keen interest in doing work that benefits Zimbabwe and her people. Born in Torwood, Kwekwe Gasa did his primary education at Richard John Davis Primary School in Kwekwe, after which he left for the UK in 1997 to proceed with his education.

A qualified director of film and cinematographer, Gasa has studied at London Film school as well as studying Performing Arts at the Cockpit Theatre and Drama at Sylvia Young in London.

Gasa has two children and says that he feels we (Zimbabweans) are losing our culture due to foreign influence. This has been the inspiration for his cartoons. Gasa's dream is to return to Zimbabwe and capture scenes of Zimbabwe's tourist resorts and hopefully boost the tourism industry.[1]
