We turned 13 on September 9.
It has been an amazing journey with its ups and downs.
Despite stiff competition, H-Metro, the country’s favourite tabloid, continues to rule the roost.
Some of the major stories, which made headlines since September 2009, featured a number of prominent people, mostly socialites, business executives and politicians.
The articles also featured bizarre incidents where even ordinary folks ended up making headlines.
H-Metro was the first local paper to break the news about Akon and Sean Paul’s maiden tour of Zimbabwe.
Show organisers ended up engaging H-Metro as their media partner.
Marondera-based musician Josphat Somaje’s love triangle, which nearly ruined his career, also made headlines after he was caught red-handed with a prostitute at Harare Polytechnic, on the eve of a musical gala.
Tongai Moyo’s wife, Barbara Muchengeti, committed suicide and H-Metro gave the story massive coverage.
The publication also covered the death of Sam Mtukudzi, who died in the company of his sound engineer Owen Chim-hare, in a road traffic accident along Bulawayo Road in 2010.
Two years ago, H-Metro was at the scene of the accident where socialite and businessman Genius Kadungure per-ished, together with fitness trainer Moana, along Domboshava Road.
The funeral and burial of Ginimbi and Moana also made headlines.
We also covered self-styled prophet Paul Sanyangore’s ‘miracles’, including his weird ‘phone call’ with God.
Prophet Sham Hungwe’s clash with a man, for snatching his wife, also made headlines.
Then, there was the sad story of a 14-year-old Marange girl, who died while giving birth at a shrine, which led to the arrest of the parents.
