Not only is she known for being the heir of the most famous medical family in Zimbabwe but Ruvheneko Parirenyatwa has proved to many that she is capable of being a history maker herself by breaking the family’s tradition of medical doctors to becoming the media doctor.
Born to David Parirenyatwa who is the son of Samuel Parirenyatwa , the first black doctor of Southern Rhodesia and also first health minister to Zimbabwe , everyone including herself thought she was going to be in that field but after failing Biology on her O’levels she settled for Arts subjects at A’level.
After her high school at Chisipite Senior School , Ruvheneko Parirenyatwa enrolled at The University Of Capetown for a Law Degree.During her second year , she switched to media studies after getting a slot as a current affairs host on the campus radio back in 2008.
In 2012 she was one of the few who were fortunate to get behind the mic on the newly established independent radio station Zifm Stereo under the leadership of Super Mandiwanzira.That is when she made a mark on radio because of her hardtalk talkshow.
After Zifm Stereo , she worked for StarFM and Capitalk FM doing her shows.She also launched her online talk show The Ruvheneko Show and it was also aired on National Television ZBCtv and she proved she was born to do it.
The 32 year old award winning media personality has interviewed influential people like Raila Odinga , Nkosasana Moyo , Nelson Chamisa , Stunner , Olinda Chapel and Paul Kagame.She has also been a master on big historical functions such as Bona Mugabe’s wedding and Grace Mugabe 50th birthday.
