He has won the Commonwealth Writers Prize (Africa region) twice, in 1988 and 1998, for two collections of short stories: The Setting Sun and the Rolling World and Walking Still. Two of his novels: Waiting for the Rain and Ndiko kupindana kwa mazuva received International PEN awards.
He held an Honorary degree from the University of Zimbabwe. His works have been influential school texts since the 1980s, when his classic novel, Waiting for the Rain, became the first set text by an African writer, helping to loosen the Europeans’ illiberal chokehold on Zimbabwean education. “Charles Mungoshi will always have a special place in my esteem for the focused clarity, the courageous honesty and depth of compassion with which he depicted the Zimbabwean condition, and the lives, hopes and fears of ordinary Zimbabweans. After reading some of his short stories, I realised that as Zimbabweans we have many urgent stories that we need to be thinking about and
reflecting on deeply, that do not reach the masses of our people.
