Exclusive;BBA winner wendall parson welcomed home in grandstyle,Collects US$50,000 from president Mugabe

president mugabe presents $50,000 to wendall parson

    Big Brother Africa winner Wendall Parson returned home to jubilant scenes at the Harare International Airport on Wednesday.

     The 23-year-old pilot was mobbed by dozens of screaming, flag-waving and vuvuzela-blowing fans after emerging from the arrivals terminal just after 1PM local time.
Accompanied on the lunchtime flight from Johannesburg by his family, Wendall was driven in an open top safari truck from the airport with more than two dozen other vehicles behind.
     The US$200,000 winner appeared keen to share the spotlight with fellow contestant, Vimbai Mutinhiri, who arrived on the same flight with him and joined the impromptu parade through the streets of Harare. Vimbai, 24, was voted off the M-Net reality TV show in the penultimate week.

       Wendall Parson picked up a US$50,000 cash gift from President Robert Mugabe at State House on Thursday, while Vimbai Mutinhiri, evicted from the show in the penultimate week, received US$10,000.
    I want in a very special way to recognise the threesome who are here by virtue of their talents that we have discovered that they have," Mugabe said.
The 91 days are meant to test you in terms of the capacity you have, the strength, the power you have physically. And indeed the strength and power you have intellectually."
     Property tycoon Phillip Chiyangwa, who mobilised US$300,000 for last year’s runner-up Munyaradzi Chidzonga, said he was in talks with other businessmen to give gifts to Wendall and Vimbai.
