It is BlogAwards week in South Africa, so we decided to have our turn too.
Considering we may not have electricity for much longer, without further adieu,
we present to you, the first ever Zimbabwean BlogAwards.

Listed below you will find a number of categories with the appropriate
Zimbabwean blog nominations underneath. Peruse your options carefully.
Visit the sites and evaluate their content with a keen eye. The stakes are
high with the winner in each category taking home a staggering 2006 $Zim.
Once you have selected your choice in each category, submit it via email.

Bear in mind, this is a democratic country, so your vote will only be counted
once per day (if at all). Remember, voting closes when we have enough
votes, so get yours in now!

Enough of that, here are the nominations (disqualifications crossed out):

Zimbabwean blog of 2005 – The best of the best

Most humourous Zimbabwean blog – Morgan Tsvangirai online

Best post on a Zimbabwean blog – The one post which took game for 2005

These traitors can no longer call themselves Zimbabweans. They must go live with Blair.

Remember, you can only vote for one valid option per category per day.

Best of luck to all the nominees!!!






FYI. These are not real awards for bloggers. This is a parody site. However, all the links are to real sites, with mostly real facts. In my opinion, all Zimbabwean bloggers deserve medals for fighting for freedom from a vile oppressor. Many Zimbabweans die every day as a direct result of Robert Mugabe’s actions, while the surrounding countries’ governments, South Africa for instance, feign ignorance.

Show these bloggers your support by browsing their sites, linking to their stories and joining their conversation. – Shaun Dewberry
