The Africa I Want, an initiative powered by JUROL and ActAfrica

The Africa I Want, an initiative powered by JUROL and ActAfrica, seeks to export conversations in closed WhatsApp to the public square.

Below is a thread drawn from a group that was created by Mr. Tinashe Mpasiri, a member of Africa Heritage Society’s (AHS), a registered NPO in terms of the laws of SA, initiative under the name of Banking on Africa’s Future (BOAF) – 10,000 Points of Light.

The future is shaped by choices and actions of today that may be informed by shared living experiences.

[7/12, 4:56 AM] mdmawere1: Good morning and thanks. Great to know that you are pationate about women empowerment. As a member of BOAF’s POL initiative that is powered by Africa Heritage Society (AHS), not-for-profit organization, established in terms of the laws of SA, I have learned that empowerment offends the doctrine of equality, a fundamental tenet of the rule of law What is your take on this proposition?
[7/12, 5:46 AM] mdmawere1: Good morning. I wanted to establish if your experience has confirmed that governance is a real problem in relation to community based organization.

We have a practical case of Zuri Africa Queen SA.

A number of persons in this group have asserted a relationship with this entity.

The facts are clear. On 2 July 2022, a media launch was done in the name of Zuri.

I attended the launch in response to an invitation by @⁨Ryan Nush⁩.

The launch was well done and exposed the urgency of use culture and heritage to raise awareness of the GBVF crisis and the use of beauty to put a spotlight on the pandemic.

I met @⁨Hilary Leong⁩ at the function.

I was given an opportunity to speak but what I noticed was that the attendance was slow.

An event is planned in the North West at Sun City.

The Sun International has agreed to help sponsor 30 guests.

The event is a Pan African one with contestants drawn from a number of African states.

After the event, I have had several conversations with @⁨Ryan Nush⁩ and his colleagues having understood that funding, the typical elephant in the room, was also an issue.

@⁨Hilary Leong⁩ indicated that he was a co-founder of ACTAFRICA, a registered NPO and PBO institution.

I immediately saw a possibility of using ActAfrica as a vehicle for prosecuting the idea clothed in the Zuri brand.

Zuri is a private for profit company that has not operated as such.

It has private shareholders but because of funding, it has no employees and a revenue base.

A journey began of corporate literacy and fortunately, @⁨Ryan Nush⁩ and @⁨Hilary Leong⁩ have been able to understand each other and come up with a mutually agreed way forward involving the use of ActAfrica as a vehicle to prosecute the idea inherent in the ambassadorship proposal to use beauty queens to raise awareness in relation to GBVF issues.

Yesterday, we had a conference call with both @⁨Hilary Leong⁩ and @⁨Ryan Nush⁩ which culminated in @⁨Ryan Nush⁩ requesting that a virtual meeting be urgently concerned to be chaured by @⁨Hilary Leong⁩ to help unpack the compliance and funding challenges of using Zuri as a vehicle to prosecute the project.

I am responding to your message because as you know, we are all volunteers to help bridge problems to solutions.

This is the reason why BOAF exists and was created.

GBVF is a societal crisis requiring all hansds on deck.

However, providers of funds have their own requirements and such requirements exist to protect public funds.

Anyone who googles my name would discover that in 2013, I was arrested on allegations that I had fraudulently defrauded the lotto.

Although the lotto does not finance individuals, the SAPS was used as vehicle to assert a nullity that an exception had been made to allow me as a person to benefit from the lotto funds on the premise that I had used my rols at the time as the Chairman of an ANC branch to corruptly seek and obtain grant funding in the name of AHS.

For more information:

it is important that we learn fromived case studies.

I hope you will read the article to appreciate that xenophobic tendencies are omnipresent in the content and context of the article.

Notwithstanding, this case study helps to expose the pervasiveness of corporate iiteracy that is associated with NPOs and their relationship with the actors being human agents like me or you.

This case could be used to clarify using the courts the precise position as to why the criminal justice system was weaponized in my case to allow for the absurdity that a natural person who was not eligible for lotto financing could be divested and deprived of his freedom without the knowledge of the lotto simply to assert a claim that foreigners choose SA as a home to prosecure criminal enterprises.

Anyone who in interested in using this as a case study to learn unlearn and relearn about a broken system and why it is necessary to use case studies to attack the abuse of public power in the name of protecting the public, please indicate your interest by simply typing Y or N.
[7/12, 5:56 AM] Tinashe Mpasiri: Y
[7/12, 5:57 AM] Tinashe Mpasiri: Good morning.

It is a fundamental case study in better understanding governance and more importantly the relationship of the directors to the NPO/NPC, the vehicle which gets funding.
[7/12, 6:01 AM] mdmawere1: [7/12, 4:10 AM] mdmawere1: [7/11, 11:01 PM] mdmawere1: #2 Imagine it is midnight and you were asked to identify 5 shinning stars who are role models in the justice delivery system as friends of the WAR AGAINST GBVF, who would they be?
[7/11, 11:01 PM] mdmawere1: #1 Does a causal link exist between a broken and an unaccountable justice delivery system and GBVF exist? If so, in what way?
[7/11, 11:06 PM] Prof Mupasiri: Noted, thank you.

Thank you for the group call. Such conversations accord us an opportunity to learn, unlearn and relearn and the result to that is growth.
[7/12, 4:13 AM] mdmawere1: What is your take on the absence of the rule of law on GBVF?
[7/12, 4:25 AM] POL00012: Well Mr M, truth be told about the justice system especially in SA is that the wheels of the system are too political, the turning phase also depends on who you are, well known individual and an unknown individual. 1. Experience taught me that if you are in the public eyes your wheel will turn faster and get results. With personal experience and being that someone who is too sensitive to the subject, I personally block the subject because to me the law takes priority more to public figures not to human beings. So being on of the people’s that had to go through the system that took years to give results but didn’t give up you will understand why so many people will give up or not report such to the law enforcement agencies due to the status core of individuals.
[7/12, 4:29 AM] POL00012: It took 4 years for me to get my justice so if you find someone without patience they give up in less that a year and you sometimes hate repeating yourself all over again just because a docket went missing or someone was bought for the documents to dissappear.
[7/12, 4:29 AM] POL00012: I normally do not intertain the subject.
[7/12, 4:30 AM] mdmawere1: Do you know of any lawyers who stand out as shinning stars on societal matters like prosecuting a WAR AGAINST GBVF or giving it a character and personality as a consequence of a broken justice system.
[7/12, 4:32 AM] POL00012: Yes I do
[7/12, 4:33 AM] mdmawere1: Are you aware on any NPO that has focus on building a platform to share insights, ideas, experiences, knowledge on the link between the rule of law and GBVF.
[7/12, 4:33 AM] mdmawere1: Who are they?
[7/12, 4:34 AM] POL00012: I just know one he is in pretoria I’ll get you his details
[7/12, 4:36 AM] POL00012: Well yes these 2 that I know off but I always distance myself due to personal reasons. I will get you their details as well.
[7/12, 4:38 AM] mdmawere1: It is not for me but I just asked to provoke the urgency and need for NPOs to be provoke to consider the building of POLs to help build law platforms that are dedicated to societal and public interest and policy issues.
[7/12, 4:42 AM] POL00012: I thought you wanted to invite him to join.
[7/12, 4:43 AM] mdmawere1: Invite who?
[7/12, 4:52 AM] POL00012: Maybe I miss understood when you asked about lawyers who stands out.
[7/12, 5:48 AM] mdmawere1: I am trying to lay the foundation of a project to solve a societal problem in which many officers of court like lawyers are often missing in action.
[7/12, 5:51 AM] POL00012: Noted
[7/12, 5:51 AM] mdmawere1: Do you agree that there is need to encourage public interest law?
[7/12, 5:55 AM] POL00012: This I agree with but with lawyers that are passionate about change
[7/12, 5:56 AM] mdmawere1: What if they are solely motivated by private and monetary gain?
[7/12, 5:58 AM] POL00012: Well lawyers can be expensive believe me I know but monetary is a huge motivation
[7/12, 5:59 AM] mdmawere1: Some lawyers take advantage of clients even when they know nothing about the problem themselves
[7/12, 6:09 AM] mdmawere1: [7/12, 5:58 AM] POL00012: Well lawyers can be expensive believe me I know but monetary is a huge motivation
[7/12, 5:59 AM] mdmawere1: Some lawyers take advantage of clients even when they know nothing about the problem themselves
[7/12, 6:01 AM] POL00012: So true
[7/12, 6:03 AM] mdmawere1: Even on NPO matters, no lawyers exist who are visible as torch bearers and go to addresses for independent and impartial vehicles.
[7/12, 6:04 AM] POL00012: I agree
[7/12, 6:06 AM] POL00012: Probono lawyers are also human and sometimes fails to deliver due to lack of resources
[7/12, 6:07 AM] POL00012: This is another animal on its own, monetary again lack of accountability.
[7/12, 6:08 AM] mdmawere1: Do you agree that one man law firm pose a risk to clients because they have no one to talk to or learn from so they use their qualifications to pretend to be bridges to justice?
