STUBS - PLEASE READ[edit]

While working on Zimbabwe-related topics, please could you take note of any stub articles which could fit into any of the following stubs. I'm trying to create all the following stubs as it seems to me that many other countries have all of these as part of their stubs categories. Simply add the name of the page at the end of the relevant line. Many Thanks, Mangwanani.

Please note that new stub categories should only be created when the more generic category has too many entries. Stub categories are designed to attract experts in specific areas, if they are too specific they may fail at that. See Stub Sorting.
