Mona-Lisa: A broadcast gem in the making

Dube was programmes manager at ZiFM Stereo  before leaving for NashTV.

Mona-Lisa Dube is one diamond that keeps shining brighter and brighter on the broadcast fraternity in Zimbabwe.

The bubbly media personality recently trended on the internet, for all the right reasons!

She was recently appointed the new general manager at Nash TV.

Dube was programmes manager at ZiFM Stereo  before leaving for NashTV.

She told Standard Style of her journey in the broadcasting industry and how it all happened by chance.

“I was introduced to radio by a friend of mine in college, who wouldn’t stop talking about ZiFM,” Dube said.

“That was about a year after it had launched and I began to listen to it.

“I absolutely loved it and so when the time for my attachment came, I applied there.

“I was mostly working on the breakfast show with MisRed and TK as well as Ruvheneko.

“Later I worked on the Exhale Bloc with Patience Musa.”

Dube reflected on how she had initially wanted to be an accountant.

“That was the plan, but when I fell in love with the media, my dad insisted that I study it formally because he was passionate about education,” she said.

“So I dropped ACCA after two years and went to study for a Diploma in journalism and media at the Harare Polytechnic in 2013.

“After completing my studies I went back to ZiFM and started as a graduate trainee in 2015.

“I later became a junior reporter and then senior reporter. In October 2022 I got promoted to be the programming manager, a position I held until I joined Nash TV.

“So for me it’s like I have been given an opportunity to circle back to where I started my media journey — TV.

Dube said she had always been poised for leadership as she is the first born in her family.

“That naturally makes one the leader of the siblings in a way,” she said.

“Even in high school I was deputy headgirl (at Queen Elizabeth High) and l was also president of the debate club and house captain.”

Dube now holds an honours degree from the Midlands State University.

She had a brief stint at the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation..
