Kubatana is powered by over 100 000 Zimbabweans. Steering our information rocket are Bev and Amanda. Bev started her working life hiring out videos (remember them?), then she picked apples, did some typing, started a design company and the finally came out of the closet as An Activist when she founded Kubatana with Brenda in 2001. Amanda has worked in various NGOs and pressure groups, she’s played rugby, run a marathon or two, walked several more, and she’s well known for her aversion to small talk – whatever you do, if you email her, make sure your story has substance and humour.
