HAMMER AND TONGUES AFRICA HOLDINGS is a wholly owned Zimbabwean holding company with subsidiaries in Zambia. The core businesses of the organisation are in the auctioneering, real estate and online/e-commerce industries.


Hammer & Tongues, founded in 1999, came into existence as a maverick brand connecting the ordinary person with mainstream auctioneering services. Exceptional service, personalised brand experience and the ability to connect with people from all walks of life endeared the brand into the hearts of its customers and propelled it into a household name within a short space of time.

Armed with this unique positioning, the brand grew exponentially spreading into the Matebeleland region, establishing a branch in Bulawayo before going across the borders into Lusaka, Zambia.

Over the years Hammer and Tongues has grown from the start-up focus of auctineering to the now diversified portfolio that spans across majors sectors of the economy.
