A lawyer by profession, Chamisa is also a degree holder in theology, as well as in political science and public administration. As far as intellectuals come, Chamisa is one.
He is also the only one on this list who has actually served in government and contested the presidency. But the 41-year-old feels his Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) offers a better alternative to Zimbabweans than the ZANU-PF.
He may seem like the gentleman’s gentleman but Chamisa does not shy from the less-than-polite aspects of politics. And he is also credited with rallying a lot of young people against the government.
