Due to lack of further responses, I'll offer some. Even though I'm sure they're not the proper answer. What I offer is true but whether there are 43 on this list, well....
Strang is the only Zimbo bowler to concede 200 runs in an innings.
Strang is the only Zimbo bowler to take 7 or more wickets in an innings & be on a losing side.
Strang is the only Zimbo bowler to take 10 wickets in a match & be on a losing side.
Strang is the only Zimbo to score a century from the number 8 position. (Wrong! Streak & Cremer also done it)
Strang is the only Zimbo to take 3 wickets in 4 balls in a test.
I tried to explore something with the brother connection but nothing jumps out at me.
I'm done.

OK, let me reveal the answer. Some guesses came close, but were not fully correct. This is more straightforward, in fact.

There are 43 people who have achieved the test career double of a century and a 10 wicket haul. Paul Strang is the only Zimbabwean in this illustrious list.

Strang has also played the least number of matches among all those who achieved this:
