Farai Gonzo will recount her experience in the Zimbabwean Broadcasting Corporation, from being a novice broadcaster to becoming a sought-after international award winner only to wind up as an enemy of the state for critical reporting of the government. The interrogation, imprisonment and torture she received forced her to leave the country and find refuge in Canada.
Ms. Gonzo holds a M.S. in International Relations from the University of Zimbabwe and is a Ph.D. candidate at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto.
