Daily News scribe in line for Nama

HARARE - Vasco Chaya, Daily News' entertainment reporter, has been nominated for a National Arts Merits Award (Nama) in the Outstanding Print Journalist category.

The 13th  Nama awards ceremony will be held in Bulawayo on February 15.

Chaya joined Zimbabwe’s leading daily three years ago and rose to be one of the most formidable arts journalists in the country.

The young journalist said he is happy to be recognised by Nama and the National Arts Council of Zimbabwe.

“I am humbled by the nomination. It shows the nation is appreciating my work and that makes me very happy,” he said.

The recognition of Chaya follows that of Daily News Community affairs Editor Margaret Chinowaita who was nominated in the same category last year.
