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?

Hopewell Chin’ono’s Hypocrisy Exposed by Mr. Tinashe Mpasiri



On 24 November 2022, Mr. Hopewell Chin’ono shared this tweet on his wall: https://twitter.com/daddyhope/status/1595758807392534528?s=20&t=YflO7bnB-32EN89x_0fPfQ with the following message directed to nameless and faceless South Africans:

“What we ask from South African citizens is for your President to STOP sanitizing Corrupt Rule in Zimbabwe and to STOP lying that our economy was destroyed by sanctions Listen to our President speak about the LOOTING in 1996.

Why doesn’t your president speak about free elections?”

The above mentioned tweet led to a conversation between Mr. Mpasiri, a member of the Justice Under Rule of Law (JUROL) and Mr. Chin’ono as set out on this link: https://heyzine.com/flip-book/d47b109920.html.

When asked why he had chosen to share a video of 1996 in support of his narrative that President Ramaphosa was guilty of sanitizing the corrupt practices by President Mnangagwa and his administration, Mr. Chin’ono responded as follows:

“ZPF leading Public officials operate with criminal business partners to loot public resources. For all intents and purposes sanctions are not the cause of Zim economic quagmire but ZPF looting public purse thru its puppet business partners from as far back as 1996?”

Advocate Matiza, a member of the Justice Under Rule of Law made the following observations and also a participant in the Banking on Africa’s Future (BOAF) – Legal Literacy WhatsApp group, commended as follows: “It is clear from the above that by importing the video in which Mr. Mawere was featured with Minister Mnangagwa as he was known then, Mr. Chin’ono was openly alleging that Mr. Mawere was Mnangagwa’s then criminal business partner who was his accomplice in looting public resources of Zimbabwe.

However, when exposed by Mr. Mpasiri, a member of JUROL and BOAF, Mr. Chin’ono backtracked as set out below:

TM: Good morning Mr Chin’ono.
My name is Tinashe Mpasiri and I am a member of the Justice Under Rule Of Law (JUROL).
I am an avid follower of your posts and exposé and certainly wish that there were more
Zimbabweans like you, working towards a diverse, inclusive, progressive and prosperous future
for all.
I just wanted to greet you and share with you a post that was shared in a group I am a part of,
that you may be able to shed more light on it.
HC: Thank you. I did an interview last night on the issue. Feel free to share it in your group
Find it here;
TM: Thank you very much sir.
Just for your information, I belong to a group with officials from Wits University and questions
arose yesterday after your sharing of the video.
I have been asked to communicate with you so I get clarity, so we can share with a proper
Your narrative on the tweet is about president Ramaphosa’s failure to act on corruption in
Zimbabwe, but the content of the video, appears nothing to do with the corruption angle.
Kindly assist with the link between the two.
HC: Good morning. Thank you for the question and you can share this audio in your group, you have my permission.
President Ramophosa has been at the forefront of saying incorrectly that the economic crisis in Zimbabwe has been caused by sanctions, which is not true.
The video that you are referencing, is meant to show that the economic crisis in Zimbabwe
started way before sanctions were imposed by western countries.
The economic crisis was authored by looting of public funds by ZANU PF elites and their business surrogates and the plunder of the country’s natural resources.
That video shows president Mnangagwa when he was Finance Minister in 1996, speaking at an event in Washington explaining how public funds have been looted.
So my point is that the president of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa shouldn’t be going around
misleading unsuspecting audiences, by saying that the economic crisis in Zimbabwe is being
caused by sanctions.
So for instance, president Ramaphosa talks about the social services pressures that are exerted by Zimbabweans coming into South Africa to use things like public services like health care. And all hospitals in Zimbabwe, all central hospitals in Zimbabwe, five of them, they only require 50 million to run without any shortages and that will make sure that Zimbabweans don’t have to cross the border into South Africa to seek public services that are provided through hospitals but these hospitals in Zimbabwe don’t have paracetamol.
The biggest hospital in Zimbabwe, Sally Mugabe hospital does not even have paracetamol, it
doesn’t have basic things like bandages and 50 million is only, that’s all we need to run our
central hospitals, but it’s not being availed to these central hospitals.
Now, ZANU PF by its own admission, says that 150 million USD worth of gold is being smuggled by ZANU PF elites and their surrogates every month. Which means what they steal in one month can run our central hospitals for 3 years.
That is the point that I making that president Ramaphosa is misleading unsuspecting audiences by saying that the crisis in Zimbabwe which is over spilling into South Africa, is being caused by sanctions, it’s not true it’s caused by sanctions. It’s caused by mis-governance. Thank you.
TM: Thank you very much Mr. Chin’ono.
This is very helpful and I believe we can build a shared understanding of only when we engage.
I will share your insights in my circles and beyond.
A number of questions emerge from your audio. By surrogates and having had the benefit to watch the video, who would be the surrogates and especially having regard to the fact that Minister Mnangagwa (as he were then), was speaking to a different subject matter involving empowerment and the role of government in financing it.
I could be wrong, but it is self-evident that he was talking about government programs whose
execution resulted in financial support being diverted to personal use.
Your response to the above would greatly assist.
HC: Surrogates were people like Mutumwa Mawere who was his front until they fell out.
Today surrogates refers to people like Kuda Tagwirei who has been a front for State looting
using his myriad of companies.

Here Mr. Chin’ono identifies Mr. Mawere as Mnangagwa’s front until they allegedly fell out.

This narrative is similar to the one peddled by Chin’ono’s friend and President Mnangagwa’s confidante and lawyer, Mr. Edwin Manikai as follows:

The message above was authored by Mr. Manikai on 27 March 2021 and was addressed to Mr. Fred Mutanda. The version peddled by Mr. Chin’ono is the same as Manikai’s version.
Mr. Manikai in the middle with Mr. Hopewell Chin’ono
Mr. Manikai in the picture with the visiting American delegation of Senators to Zimbabwe and his wife and Hon. Mliswa, Manikai’s best friend.
The SMM heist gang who authored and executed the divestment and deprivation of the control of 26 companies employing 20,000 people in 2004 using public power described as the precursor to the coup of November 2017 that was orchestrated by the same gang against Mugabe after successfully prosecuting the coup against SMM and related entities.

TM: Thank you for the honest response and obviously when I watched the video, I could not make the link between Mutumwa Mawere and the looting.
Perhaps you can share evidence supporting the allegation of surrogacy and the corruption
therefore in, so that I can afford both president Mnangagwa and Mawere to give their own
account of the precise nature of the alleged link between public power and private benefit.
Unfortunately, the video’s content does not establish the causal link which is vital in determining any dispute in an Independent and impartial manner.
HC: I didn’t say Mutumwa was corrupt.
I said that there were public funds that were doled out which amounted to looting.
You are misinterpreting what I said.
The video has nothing to do with Mutumwa being corrupt, it was meant to illustrate how public funds were looted way before sanctions.

Hopewell denies what he said before and claims the video that he intentionally and constructively shared to demonstrate the origins of Mnangagwa’s corruption had nothing to with Mawere being party to the looting of public funds.

TM: Thank you for clarifying and I am intrigued by your response.
You have asserted as true and fact that Mawere was Mnangagwa front and this aspect is not
evident in the video, suggesting that evidence exists that the alleged fronting you are talking
about, is supported by concrete evidence which is required in any bona fide process, seeking to hold people accountable for their conduct or misconduct. I would be grateful if you can identify in precise terms what Mawere front for Mnangagwa.

Mr. Chin’ono on SABC repeating the narrative of corruption as the cause of the Zim crisis.

Advocate Jack Matiza who was incensed by Mr. Chin’ono’s utterances remarked asked: “How can he be held responsible and accountable for social media post that damage another person reputation? My take is Hopewell is also guilty of selective amnesia he is accusing Ramaphosa of when it comes to sanctions, by stating that Mutumwa Mawere was an front of ED without providing any proof to that. Our self acclaimed award winning journalist and human right defender…ought to know that he who alleges must prove, is he not using or abusing social media or public media platforms to make unfounded statements without allowing the accused an opportunity to air their side of the story is itself an abuse of that person’s basic human rights?
To which Mr. Mawere responded as follows: “What if there exists no shared understanding on what are the obligations and rights of citizenship? What Hopewell could be saying is that information that he may possess is true and fact unless proved otherwise because he holds a privileged position in society as a journalist. In this case, affinity politics would compel him to conclude that because I shared the same platform with the current President of Zimbabwe this reality confirms a generally corrupt relationship. You can imagine what the true import of state capture and the legal consequences arising for its existence.”
Advocate Matiza by stating as follows: “There is certainly need to actively contribute to development of such shared understanding and common standards.”
Mr. Mawere commended as follows: “If asked to explain why the conversation is intriguing, what would be your response?

Mr Chin’ono genuinely believes that CORRUPTION is the elephant in the room.

He hold the view that he occupies a special and exceptional position in relation to the affairs of Zimbabwe.

He has a view on the 1996 video.”

When asked by Mr. Mawere, what identified questions arise from the hypocrisy inherent in Mr. Chin’ono’s open attack against Mawere and when confronted by Mr. Manikai, he quickly denied what he had stated as true and fact, Advocate Matiza responded as follows:

1. Abuse of the profession of journalism by an acclaimed journalist who has no respect for the truth in his narratives.

2.How should one define a human rights defender especially having exposed Mr. Chin’ono’s embarrassing performance by first alleging that Mnangagwa was using Mawere as a front only to backtrack and deny his own bold assertions.

3.In the face of hypocrites masquerading as award-winning journalists, what should be the best response to deal with divisive characters who have captured the profession and are using it as a weapon to advance their ulterior motives?

4. Section 2 of the Constitution of Zimbabwe imposes a binding obligation on every person to ensure that the rule of law is promoted, protected and upheld and in this case, what should be done by ordinary citizens to ensure that people like Mr. Chin’ono are accountable for their conduct which is inimical to the rule of law?

5. Does a person like Mr. Chin’ono know that he is also subject to the constitution and possesses no title or authority to maliciously defame other people. How best can he be held accountable for his reckless and dangerous assertions he makes under the cover that he is a journalist par excellence?

6. Does his conduct based on Mpasiri’s excellent interrogation not fall within conduct that is inconsistent with the constitution of Zimbabwe?
