BOAF SOLAR – TOWARDS BUILDING UBER-LIKE SOLAR PLATFORM to connect the demand and supply side actors in the solar value chains

Published

on

Mr. Ganizani, a member of the Banking on Africa’s Future (BOAF) initiative, a platform to convert connections into community power as a bridge to commerce and problem solving, has a company, that acts as a vehicle in South Africa to solve the electricity challenges currently confronting South Africa resulting in crippling load shedding which leaves many in programmed but unpredictable darkness.

Below is a conversation between Mr. Mawere and Mr. Ganizani that I found not only interesting but path finding.

[12/18/2022, 1:19 PM] MR G: How are you sir. My name is Ganizani. I’m one of your connections on LinkedIn. I once came to your offices for some mentoring. I was wondering if you still have time to mentor and coach Young aspiring business people. I’m from Zvishavane but I’m currently in Johannesburg, where in establishing a business and I would be delighted to get some wisdom from you.

A recent installation


[12/18/2022, 1:29 PM] mdmawere1: Do you know how LinkedIn connections I have?
[12/18/2022, 1:30 PM] MR G: I know you have many sir. And I know you have lots of people you talk to every day. But it would be an honor for me to be one of them as well
[12/18/2022, 1:31 PM] mdmawere1: Just guess how many connections and followers?
[12/18/2022, 1:34 PM] MR G: 34000 followers
[12/18/2022, 1:35 PM] mdmawere1: Great. And connections?
[12/18/2022, 1:36 PM] MR G: I’m not sure I guess as much as LinkedIn allows… 30000?
[12/18/2022, 1:40 PM] MR G: I wasn’t too much off😀 but at least out of the 30k connections and 34k followers I’m one of the few with your whatsapp number ☺️


[12/18/2022, 1:42 PM] MR G: And thank you for responding to my whatsapp… for a man of such stature as you it is a privilege to be able to have a text that gets read and responded to. Thank you
[12/18/2022, 1:43 PM] mdmawere1: Do you have a calculator?
[12/18/2022, 1:43 PM] MR G: Yes I have sir
[12/18/2022, 1:43 PM] mdmawere1: How many days are in a year?
[12/18/2022, 1:44 PM] MR G: 365.24
[12/18/2022, 1:44 PM] MR G: .25 sorry
[12/18/2022, 1:44 PM] mdmawere1: Do you agree that the total connections I have are a minimum of 60k
[12/18/2022, 1:45 PM] MR G: Yes
[12/18/2022, 1:45 PM] mdmawere1: Divide 60k by 360 days (excluding weekends).
[12/18/2022, 1:46 PM] MR G: 166.67
[12/18/2022, 1:47 PM] mdmawere1: Do you agree that it will take me 168 years to know this community?
[12/18/2022, 1:47 PM] mdmawere1: If I met each person per day.
[12/18/2022, 1:48 PM] MR G: 😀😀😀😀 yeah. I agree… but do you also agree that most of us are not benefiting from what you have… we are just happy to have Mutumwa Mawere as a connection
[12/18/2022, 1:49 PM] mdmawere1: Are you a Christian?
[12/18/2022, 1:49 PM] MR G: Yes sir
[12/18/2022, 1:49 PM] mdmawere1: Have you ever seen him?
[12/18/2022, 1:49 PM] MR G: No. I have heard about him and was convinced
[12/18/2022, 1:50 PM] mdmawere1: What is the benefit of being in a community of believers?
[12/18/2022, 1:50 PM] MR G: It’s a tough one.
[12/18/2022, 1:51 PM] MR G: It ideally is supposed to be where you find strength, comfort, company and fulfillment
[12/18/2022, 1:52 PM] mdmawere1: Do you agree that fellowship and belonging makes one luckier?
[12/18/2022, 1:52 PM] MR G: Yes I agree
[12/18/2022, 1:54 PM] mdmawere1: Assume you go to the Vatican and ask for the Pope to listen to your confession, what do you think would be his response?
[12/18/2022, 1:55 PM] MR G: If it is my lucky day he will listen to my confession, but ordinarily I guess he would assign one of his juniors or tell me to go to my home church
[12/18/2022, 1:56 PM] mdmawere1: Imagine he grants you your request, what would follow?
[12/18/2022, 1:57 PM] MR G: I would not waste anymore of his time and confess
[12/18/2022, 1:58 PM] mdmawere1: What would follow is the longest queue to Rome from his village in Argentina asking for the same favour?
[12/18/2022, 1:59 PM] MR G: 😀😀😀 I won’t tell the world that I managed to speak to the pope today… so I suppose noone will know… maybe a few one or two like minded people will also dare to go to the Vatican to ask for the same privilege, but independently
[12/18/2022, 2:14 PM] mdmawere1: History of human civilization has not produced any exceptions and hence even Jesus never had factions. Selfish people are the ones who want favours and promise not to tell anyone when seeking an exception is what destroys building community power and this renders the faith dead and the people who kill it are the ones who pretend to protect it by seeking to be close to the people who is also a man of flesh with only 24 hours in a day like you and me.

Do you agree that no shared understanding exists on what mentorship is and is not?
[12/18/2022, 2:21 PM] MR G: Yes. I agree with you 100%. Mentorship is a broad term. And I believe it is cultivated over a long period of time… however. But my version when I spoke to you is not son much about having favours or privileges as a result of me knowing you or me being close to you… my belief is that just having a reply from you on my whatsapp number, just having a word or two of wisdom from you is all that a person can ask for… as you said fellowship in a community improves chances of luck… my luck at this moment is to have the privilege of you reading my texts and responding to them… I already have learner a thing or two from your responses
[12/18/2022, 2:34 PM] mdmawere1: Do you agree that time is the currency of life?
[12/18/2022, 2:35 PM] MR G: Yes I do
[12/18/2022, 2:38 PM] mdmawere1: Do agree that your version of mentorship suits you?
[12/18/2022, 2:40 PM] MR G: Yes it is for me ☺️…. I suppose my version of mentorship is one that the mental has everything to gain while the mentor is the one on the giving side….
[12/18/2022, 2:41 PM] mdmawere1: Do you agree that while someone responding on WhatsApp time is the victim?
[12/18/2022, 2:41 PM] mdmawere1: How many have died texting?
[12/18/2022, 2:42 PM] MR G: Yes I know. And that’s why I’m so grateful for the day I have spent with you today
[12/18/2022, 2:42 PM] MR G: To me it is a day well spent.
[12/18/2022, 2:43 PM] MR G: There’s always a price to pay…. nothings for free. What I’m gaining you are obviously paying
[12/18/2022, 2:43 PM] mdmawere1: Do you agree that this is the selfish and insensitive statement? Do think I have nothing better to do with my time?
[12/18/2022, 2:44 PM] mdmawere1: You never steal another’s time allocation and call it a gain.
[12/18/2022, 2:44 PM] MR G: No. You have much better things… and I’m grateful you took your time to include me in that…
[12/18/2022, 2:45 PM] MR G: I’m not sure about that. But if I have gained I suppose someone has lost…. I don’t think there’s such a thing as a win win
[12/18/2022, 2:45 PM] mdmawere1: Learn to invest in anything you want to benefit from – give up something to gakn something.
[12/18/2022, 2:47 PM] MR G: That’s very correct. I’m always willing to pay for things that I believe have a return in my life
[12/18/2022, 2:47 PM] mdmawere1: Have you heard of BOAF?
[12/18/2022, 2:48 PM] MR G: No. I’m checking it now
[12/18/2022, 2:49 PM] mdmawere1: That is a community power building initiative to convert connections into community power.

Are on LinkedIn?
[12/18/2022, 2:49 PM] MR G: Ok. I wasn’t aware of that
[12/18/2022, 2:49 PM] MR G: Yes I’m on LinkedIn
[12/18/2022, 2:50 PM] mdmawere1: How big is your network?
[12/18/2022, 2:52 PM] MR G: I have 906 connections and 916 followers. My company page has 1414 followers
[12/18/2022, 2:53 PM] mdmawere1: [12/18, 2:45 PM] +263 77 270 3567: I am learning more about you everyday. You believe in sharing ideas and that he who receive your time should share acquired knowledge to others
[12/18, 2:53 PM] mdmawere1: I believe that no one should steal another’s currency of life without the counterparty giving up something in return of equivalent value.
[12/18/2022, 2:55 PM] MR G: I agree with that… it is my hope that in my own small world I can also impact an equivalent number of people according to my scale… I believe I’m already doing that in my own little world
[12/18/2022, 2:57 PM] MR G: This person is telling the truth about you… this is the confidence I had when I approached you… with what you have and a the people you have interacted with, you do not stop giving your time to people. It is a rare character you have
[12/18/2022, 2:58 PM] mdmawere1: Do you agree that only Jesus was a gift and I am no Jesus?
[12/18/2022, 3:01 PM] MR G: You are mukuru! You may not see it that way but you are…. a lot of people have gained valuable lessons from you… it may be unfortunate that it costs you your free time and even money but that where I said someone is paying… and that’s where again I said you are a rare character because you keep on paying… I guess it’s an answer to a rare calling you have
[12/18/2022, 3:03 PM] MR G: You are a gift, I mean..
[12/18/2022, 3:04 PM] mdmawere1: An orange is a gift but a person of flesh can’t be.
[12/18/2022, 3:06 PM] MR G: I’m not sure I would agree… I believe a gift is something that someone benefits from without necessarily working for it… in that way I believe you are a gift to those lucky ones that get to share your time without them doing anything that deserves your time
[12/18/2022, 3:07 PM] mdmawere1: Never call a human being who is living a gift and even a slave would not qualify to be insulted.
[12/18/2022, 3:08 PM] MR G: My apologies for the insult.
[12/18/2022, 3:08 PM] MR G: If you may please tell me what to call a person such as this one I described above
[12/18/2022, 3:09 PM] mdmawere1: An idiot.
[12/18/2022, 3:09 PM] MR G: 😀😀😀😀😀
[12/18/2022, 3:10 PM] MR G: Maybe,maybe not…. what if that’s your calling, if you believe there’s such a thing as a calling?
[12/18/2022, 3:10 PM] mdmawere1: Even an office needs to be paid for and nothing good ever comes from the salvation army without anyone funding the army.
[12/18/2022, 3:10 PM] mdmawere1: Only Jesus deserves the honour of being called a gift.
[12/18/2022, 3:10 PM] MR G: Exactly… this is where I said thers nothing for free… what you may consider free someone has paid for it
[12/18/2022, 3:12 PM] mdmawere1: This is a very important value to guide life.
[12/18/2022, 3:13 PM] MR G: True sir. I thank you for mentioning that.
[12/18/2022, 3:14 PM] MR G: What we gain from you will be betrayal and a huge loss if we are not willing to also pay for others who may not be in a position to pay for
[12/18/2022, 3:14 PM] mdmawere1: There are far too many who abuse mentorship to result in abuse.
[12/18/2022, 3:14 PM] MR G: Like was mentioned by this person
[12/18/2022, 3:15 PM] MR G: But do we have enough mentors in the world? I don’t think so
[12/18/2022, 3:15 PM] mdmawere1: He is also learning like all of us. Would you want to part of the BOAF circle to learn, unlearn and relearn.
[12/18/2022, 3:17 PM] MR G: Many of us I believe are getting lost because we are not able to find the mentors… I believe believe mentorship is so valuable that no amount of money can be put on it to. So those who benefit from a good mentorship can never be able to pay back but only extend the hand
[12/18/2022, 3:17 PM] MR G: I would be delighted to be part of it
[12/18/2022, 3:18 PM] mdmawere1: Would an annual membership of R1000 per annum scare you?
[12/18/2022, 3:19 PM] MR G: No. I can pay for it today if you allow me
[12/18/2022, 3:21 PM] mdmawere1: Great
[12/18/2022, 3:23 PM] mdmawere1: please register on this link e-boaf.africaemart.com
[12/18/2022, 3:25 PM] MR G: Ok thank you. I’m on it

[12/18/2022, 3:31 PM] MR G: It’s a very good platform. Is it your project?
[12/18/2022, 3:32 PM] mdmawere1: Create a wallet in ZAR or $
[12/18/2022, 3:32 PM] mdmawere1: It is our project. Would you want to own a highway or use it?
[12/18/2022, 3:34 PM] MR G: I want to be part of it… even own part of it if I can get the chance☺️
[12/18/2022, 3:35 PM] mdmawere1: What will happen when you die? In relation to ownership.
[12/18/2022, 3:35 PM] mdmawere1: What is the name of the platform?
[12/18/2022, 3:36 PM] MR G: I pass it on to my family
[12/18/2022, 3:36 PM] MR G: Which platform sir?
[12/18/2022, 3:37 PM] mdmawere1: BOAF
[12/18/2022, 3:38 PM] mdmawere1: You know what BOAF stands for?
[12/18/2022, 3:40 PM] MR G: Birds of a feather, from the online definition I looked up
[12/18/2022, 3:45 PM] mdmawere1: BANKING ON AFRICA’S FUTURE (BOAF).
[12/18/2022, 3:46 PM] MR G: Wow! That’s awesome
[12/18/2022, 3:49 PM] mdmawere1: e-BOAF is our electronic currency

[1/31, 8:42 AM] Mosaics Marufu: Save if I may ask what was the relationship between smm mm and gvt.

[1/31, 8:43 AM] mdmawere1: What do you think or have heard so that I may know from you?

[1/31, 8:45 AM] Mosaics Marufu: Ok thanks my understanding is you had shares as well as gvt. But it’s unfortunate couldn’t follow after the mines closed.

[1/31, 8:46 AM] mdmawere1: Shares in which company or companies.

[1/31, 8:47 AM] mdmawere1: It turns out that Adv is offline and not recheable anyway.

[1/31, 10:57 AM] Mosaics Marufu: Lucky them

[1/31, 10:58 AM] mdmawere1: How so?

[1/31, 10:59 AM] mdmawere1: Is it a consequence of luck or effort as well?

[1/31, 11:02 AM] Mosaics Marufu: You might have the effort(guts) but it’s also 10% luck.

[1/31, 11:02 AM] mdmawere1: Did you see what happened when I asked Mucha to name a beneficiary cause, what his response was.

[1/31, 11:22 AM] Mosaics Marufu: Trying to locate chat can you please tag it

[1/31, 11:29 AM] mdmawere1: [1/25, 7:38 PM] Mucha Mugota: Wow! Just wow! 

You are on to something mukoma.

[1/25, 7:40 PM] mdmawere1: Is it ok?

[1/25, 7:41 PM] mdmawere1: You are the brains behind. You will receive 5% of the proceeds towards a charity of your choice.

[1/25, 7:49 PM] Mucha Mugota: Its great mukoma.

[1/25, 7:51 PM] Mucha Mugota: Will ask it be donated to Capota School for the Blind in Masvingo. Its a worthy cause close to my heart.

[1/25, 7:57 PM] mdmawere1: Now it is your turn to show up for this noble cause.

[1/25, 7:58 PM] mdmawere1: You are the GENERAL and I will be there to support the cause.

[1/25, 7:58 PM] Mucha Mugota: Kikikikiki. 

I will do my best mukoma.

[1/31, 11:30 AM] Mosaics Marufu: Yes I read this one

[1/31, 11:33 AM] Mosaics Marufu: Yes like me he was really exited. I also appreciate this gesture as I work with visually impaired too

[1/31, 11:33 AM] mdmawere1: Do you agree that he was the author of the idea of the memoir?

[1/31, 11:35 AM] Mosaics Marufu: Trying to connect all conversation but because of power cuts sometimes loose out but am following

[1/31, 11:36 AM] mdmawere1: Do you agree that he was the author?

[1/31, 11:40 AM] Mosaics Marufu: Yes I read so

[1/31, 11:43 AM] mdmawere1: Is there anyone who stopped a person like Luke and you from proposing a similar arrangement?

[1/31, 11:48 AM] Mosaics Marufu: Not at all but maybe our approach was not of your expecting.

[1/31, 11:49 AM] Mosaics Marufu: Expectation

[1/31, 11:50 AM] Mosaics Marufu: BOAF is an eye opener

[1/31, 11:51 AM] mdmawere1: Do you agree that there would be no benefit to me at all since your lives hitherto like that of Mucha are unknown to me?

[1/31, 11:52 AM] mdmawere1: ARE YOU AWARE THAT BOAF IS AN IDEA AND NOT A PERSON OF FLESH LIKE WHO IS ENGAGING YOU AS A PERSON?

[1/31, 11:54 AM] Mosaics Marufu: Yes but your benevolence will be talked of by benefiaries your profile as well

[1/31, 11:54 AM] Mosaics Marufu: Yes I know

[1/31, 11:55 AM] mdmawere1: Do you agree that graveyards have no ATM machines to deposit or withdraw funds?

[1/31, 11:55 AM] Mosaics Marufu: Too far fetched kkkk

[1/31, 11:56 AM] mdmawere1: What benefit would this be to me?

[1/31, 11:56 AM] Mosaics Marufu: Expagorate on this

[1/31, 11:58 AM] mdmawere1: You have asserted this: “Yes but your benevolence will be talked of by benefiaries your profile as well,” and I battling to understand why you import my profile into the equation.

[1/31, 12:04 PM] Mosaics Marufu: You asked how you would benefit

[1/31, 12:08 PM] mdmawere1: Do you call being remembered as a BENEFIT for any living person?

[1/31, 12:13 PM] Mosaics Marufu: Not to living being but the legacy of you lives on. Jairos Jiri is a living dead.

[1/31, 12:15 PM] mdmawere1: Tell me this first time narrative that Jairos Jiri is benefiting from being talked about? I thought only Jesus was the gift by the creator to mankind who was not meant to have any aspirations because the pathway to the destination was predetermined.

[1/31, 12:24 PM] Mosaics Marufu: OK LU Q%

[1/31, 12:24 PM] Mosaics Marufu: 2

[1/31, 12:29 PM] mdmawere1: Do you think being correctly remembered constitutes a benefit for a living person?

[1/31, 12:38 PM] Mosaics Marufu: I want to believe that MM Besides a legacy what would a living perish besides living beyond. The momoir we are discussing is no different

[1/31, 12:39 PM] mdmawere1: Do you agree that life exists to be lived?

[1/31, 12:40 PM] Mosaics Marufu: But can live on eternally through deeds

[1/31, 12:43 PM] mdmawere1: [1/31, 12:39 PM] Leslie Mangunda: This really needs some time for me to understand what exactly happened.

If you have a write up that I can go through, that would be welcome.

[1/31, 12:42 PM] mdmawere1: Thanks. Do you want to give me job to write for you? Imagine I was to do this for all people I know and who want to abuse my time to get ahead, would this be the purpose of life. It is just to show that being in my unfortunate place, the people who need direction and problem solving, they are the very people who do not want to give up anything to get what they want but would be foolish enough to expect me to have 24+1 hours in a day to serve their selfish ends. This kind of behavior must stop yesterday.

[1/31, 12:45 PM] mdmawere1: You are still skirting the issue. Please talk to me as if we are all humans of flesh. Your group needs resources now than when they are dead. Why I anyone bother then?

[1/31, 12:50 PM] Mosaics Marufu: This needs proper reasoning I don’t want to just reply for sake of it

[1/31, 12:51 PM] Mosaics Marufu: Come again on last part

[1/31, 12:55 PM] mdmawere1: I am saying if life was created simply to deliver after death legacy, then who would want to live it.

[1/31, 2:02 PM] Mosaics Marufu: Shakespear once said the good things that men do(whilst alive) lives(legacy-memoir) after them.

[1/31, 2:10 PM] Mosaics Marufu: Shakespear once said the good things that men do(whilst alive) lives(legacy-memoir) after them.

[1/31, 2:48 PM] Mosaics Marufu: Very very correct , a autobiography is controlled by the person in question unlike an arbitrary

[1/31, 2:49 PM] mdmawere1: Would you rather buy an autobiography or a literacy library?

[1/31, 2:51 PM] Mosaics Marufu: Autobiography is better

[1/31, 2:55 PM] mdmawere1: Who would be the target? Who should cover the cost and time?

[1/31, 4:33 PM] mdmawere1: [1/31, 4:02 PM] mdmawere1: Hello

[1/31, 4:07 PM] Shayne Kundai: Maswera sei

[1/31, 4:07 PM] mdmawere1: Fine. Are you following?

[1/31, 4:07 PM] Shayne Kundai: Not yet but soon

[1/31, 4:09 PM] Shayne Kundai: Can you link us🙏🏻🙏🏻

[1/31, 4:22 PM] mdmawere1: You want me to be a pimp or to work as a circle.

[1/31, 4:26 PM] Shayne Kundai: Work as a circle

[1/31, 4:32 PM] mdmawere1: Indeed. Read Shau’s take and my response to it. 

Then kindly comment on both and I can share with her to assist in aligning ideas and actions.

[02/01, 07:05] Mutumwa Mawere: [2/1, 6:13 AM] Joshua Ziyambi: Yeah i am , should anyone of them ask where i got their contact what can i say?

[2/1, 6:19 AM] mdmawere1: You are a member of a group that exists to fulfill the obligations of s2 of the constitution to build an open, accountable, responsive and responsible governance architecture and the initiative you are part of under BOAF – JUSTICE UNDER THE RULE OF LAW IS MEANT TO ACHIEVE THIS.

ON A MORE SERIOUS NOTE HAVE READ THE EXCHANGE BETWEEN HOPEWELL CHIN’ONO AND TINASHE MPASIRI THAT EXPOSED HOPEWELL AS A HOPELESS LIAR?

[2/1, 6:32 AM] Joshua Ziyambi: Good, yes i read the conversation between Hopewell and Mpasiri

[2/1, 6:33 AM] mdmawere1: How did Tinashe introduce himself? Please share

[2/1, 6:35 AM] Joshua Ziyambi: Let me go through it once again

[2/1, 6:48 AM] Joshua Ziyambi: By the way Prof Mupasiri and Hopewell’s conversation is it in pdf form

[2/1, 6:49 AM] mdmawere1: What does one learn from this response?

[2/1, 7:03 AM] mdmawere1: PLEASE BUILD YOUR OWN BANK OF KNOWLEDGE TO SHARE.

YOU ARE WRITING YOUR OWN MEMOIR SO PLEASE HELP OTHERS TO LEARN, UNLEARN AND RELEARN BY BEING DILIGENT IN TERMS OF RECORD KEEPING.

BY WRITING YOUR OWN RECORD OF EXCHANGES WITH ME, YOU WOULD HAVE GIVEN LIFE TO THE CALL TO ACTION TO DEMOCRATIZE THE MISSING DOT – THE ABSENCE OF JOURNALISM EXCELLENCE that would create the reality and absurdity of some journalists winning unmerited awards simply by inventing and augmenting reality using the profession as a weapon of choice and convenience.

If charlatans can win awards as journalism, why can’t you play your part in constructively shaping and defining the kind of Africa you want to be part of by choosing to act so that the public, as custodians of the rule of law, can be informed, educated and entertained as an end and not a bridge for some ego boosting enterprise that undermines the profession and in so doing put the entire profession into disrepute.

By you choosing to act, you will have given life to the project to build an open, democratic, accountable, responsible and responsive governance system in Africa.

Future generations will not be denied the opportunity to know what has been shared to you and unlike Mr. Mucha Mugore who after writing a dissertation on SMM-related matters has refused and failed to disclose the paper that he wrote to obtain a degree yet the content could be important to provoke vigilance necessary to protect the constitution from crooked and shameless public office bearers.

Play your part for others to know and act in the interests of protecting the voiceless constitution.

[02/01, 08:05] Mutumwa Mawere: [2/1, 7:52 AM] Sovereign Heru: Whom is he with?

[2/1, 7:53 AM] mdmawere1: Manikai and former Senator Flake

[2/1, 7:56 AM] Sovereign Heru: When is this?

[2/1, 7:58 AM] mdmawere1: US EMBASSY IN HARARE BUT I WASN’T THERE. This is from the public domain.

[2/1, 7:59 AM] mdmawere1: Have you read the Mpasiri v Chin’ono thread?

[2/1, 8:00 AM] Sovereign Heru: I’m reading it.

[2/1, 8:00 AM] mdmawere1: Ok

[02/01, 08:26] Mutumwa Mawere: [2/1, 8:12 AM] Joshua Ziyambi: I think it can be helpful to share again Hopewell and Mupasiri conversation for the sake of those who might not have seen it

[2/1, 8:19 AM] mdmawere1: Are you asking or answering? If you asking, why when the chats are now your property and you can add your comments for heritage purposes and explain in detail how you got the chats as per our chat before.

[2/1, 8:22 AM] Joshua Ziyambi: I am suggesting to share it again because i previously shared it

[2/1, 8:25 AM] mdmawere1: Suggesting to whom? Why not act as a sovereign human being unless you want to perpetuate the idea of surrogacy peddled by Hopewell. Share what you have without asking another human being what you should do next. You use your legs to take you to a point B and do you ask anyone to give you legs. If not, why now?

SHARED CONVERSATIONS TOWARDS BUILDING COMMUNITIES THAT WORK FOR ALL WITH SHAUDZIRAI MUDEKUNYE

Published

on

Shau Mudekunye (Photo credit: Facebook)

[1/30, 3:24 PM] Shau Mudekunye: Hi babamnini, where is this thread by Colleta? I would like to read it so I have context. 

The snippets that I read when I can call me to think that I should also one day sit with you and hear exactly what happened to all the businesses. In my 37 years I have always thought of these topics as ‘hands-off’, not for nothing more than I took a stance to leave it alone, semwana wenyu. Which, in hindsight is contrary to my own nature as Shau. Because knowing the truth always gives me better understanding for my stances. It’s most interesting to me that I read about it, and have heard many opinions, but have never sought understanding from you directly, even though I have direct access. I would also like to hear your story as told by you… Not by opinion pieces or the news or in rooms where people talk freely without knowledge that I am your relative.

Speaking from a point of lack of understanding, is a dangerous thing, and an unfortunate reality of our social media driven world. I say this even as a social media practitioner myself. I will also say that I myself should seek the understanding from the knowledge you hold.

[1/31, 12:19 PM] mdmawere1: Hello

[1/31, 12:29 PM] mdmawere1: Thanks for this perspective. Imagine I had to tell the story to you and thereafter to all who would say that I only choose to tell the truth to relatives. I am sure you aware that a public law exists and was used in relation to the affairs of SMM Holdings Private Limited (SMM). This happened in September 2004 when an extrajudicial order was issued and prosecuted against SMM under the guise of reconstruction. It is now 19 years later but the reality is that absent the use of public power, which power when properly construed constitutes public trust and consequently PUBLIC PROPERTY, that must be subjected to public scrutiny and citizen vigilance. In the premises, Mr. Mr. Mucha Mugore, proposed that I write a memoir using God’s time and my memory to write this. It is this proposal that sparked the chat with Colleta and her sentiments that as a niece I must practice some tribalism or nepotism for her benefit without understanding the time is the currency of life and must, therefore, be used to solve problems of the present. I proposed that we use a prepayment approach whereby people who think it is a good idea, pay R150 per copy and the funds will then be used to pay the service providers to make it happen. He obviously refused, failed and neglected to give up R150 or $8 to lead the campaign to interrogate the facts as they exist lest she would be identified and labelled my surrogate if I took your advice of privatizing the story.

[01/31, 14:23] Mutumwa Mawere: [1/31, 1:27 PM] Shau Mudekunye: Hi Uncle Mutumwa! I tried to read everything yesterday but have still not managed to go through it all. To respond to this latest message, I think the idea of pre-funding a book is a great idea, especially for those who would want to read it. A cheaper idea may be to capture it all on camera and distribute it through a subscription service. I am not at all suggesting that you tell only me, on the contrary, I would love for you to control your own narrative – I believe that is our basic right, to tell our own stories. It is dangerous to have your story told by someone else – or a hoard of other people who only come at it from their own understanding and perspective, and perhaps even with their own motives. We all need to be part and parcel of telling our own events.

I don’t think it is really about nepotism, but more to say if we, your nieces, cannot tell the version of events from our own uncle, we may have lost the plot a little bit. I say this because I still believe that your family can be your first ally, but also your most ardent supporter (not that we need to enlist blindly, but as a good to have).As you have seen in the last few weeks with Kudzai and Themba. His dragging my brother’s name through the mud has made me even more vigilant with taking the matter of care of my own family to heart. It is also what likely spurred my own confession to you that much as we are family, I have yet to hear this story from the horse’s mouth. Not so I can defend or judge, but so that I can be a better ally and supporter to my family because I can come from a place of understanding. Understanding is key, and lack of understanding leads to endless disputes. 

Uncle, I can write, I can film, I can produce, I can figure out subscription platforms for you to tell your story – I am financially unable to do much at this moment, but your brother and sister sent me to school to hone my skills and I will gladly lend them to a cause that I believe in. While I appreciate public records, I will still sit at a table and gladly listen to your story directly from you.

[1/31, 2:11 PM] mdmawere1: Thanks for the detailed response. I shall respond point by point so that we can use this chat as a literacy campaign since this platform approach that is user driven may not have a precedent to rely upon.

ADV SHAVIRAI MAWERE JOINS THE BOAF LEADERSHIP GROUP

Published

on

Adv. Shavirai Mawere (Photo credit: Facebook)

[1/29, 7:21 AM] mdmawere1: PLEASE TAKE NOTICE THAT ADV SHAVIRAI has joined the BOAF LEADERSHIP group.

Take the opportunity to welcome him.

He can provide leadership on the legal and constitutional questions.

If you have a problem in crafting the questions so that we can get people like MUPASIRI to help.

[1/29, 8:11 AM] Colletta Madzvamuse: I hope you had a restful night

[1/29, 8:12 AM] mdmawere1: And you too. Sorry to make you overwork

[1/29, 8:16 AM] Colletta Madzvamuse: Sekuru, instead of hearing other people’s point of views, what you think is right. I haven’t seen anywhere where someone gave their trend of thought and you agreed with them. With the way you respond to anyone who posts anything that’s contrary to your views, it seems in these Groups that you’re the one with all the Wisdom. How can we have discussions? It’s now like lectures. Where you’re the lecturer who knows it all and everyone else should learn from you. Maybe that’s how it is. Kuti you’re trying to have discussions with danta heads who have no clue. How do we engage when you come back at us with your views? It’s better we don’t post anything because we’re not at your level of enlightenment.

[1/29, 8:24 AM] Colletta Madzvamuse: What I posted about What a LEADER is, that’s what I believe and that’s what I stand by. Anyone who thinks different should be entitled to their beliefs. But if you want more people to engage in these Groups Sekuru, they should feel free to express their views without being attacked for it or made to look like they don’t know. If you’re enlightened in certain areas, which you are, enlightening others without making yourself feel better than them goes a long way. There are so many things Sekuru that you can learn from some people in these Groups. But at the moment it seems like ndimi munoziva zvese. Which is fine if you want the Group to be that way. Most people admire what you’ve been able to accomplish in this life. They wouldn’t mind coming to hear you speak if you want the Groups to be that way.

[1/29, 8:29 AM] mdmawere1: Not sure if you want to learn, unlearn and relearn.

[1/29, 8:33 AM] mdmawere1: Why are you so judgmental? Anyone who corrects me is my friend than anyone who wants to hear your voice? 

Why are you not responding in the group and in so doing let ideas battle ideas? 

Your thinking is yours and my thinking is mine. 

The group consists of independent minds.

I responded because your mind is similar to many others and mine may be the minority hence the purpose is for both sides of the coin to be given expression whether by me or another.

What prejudice do you suffer by ideas being given freedom to be in the open?

[1/29, 8:34 AM] Colletta Madzvamuse: I can learn so much from you Sekuru. You have so much in you that I can benefit from. But I’m finding it hard to learn, unlearn, and relearn with your approach. It feels like a beating anytime I don’t respond to something your way.

[1/29, 8:34 AM] mdmawere1: Mucha asked me to write a memoir and perhaps he should have asked you.

[1/29, 8:36 AM] mdmawere1: I had one manager at the World Bank who used to correct every sentence I wrote in red.

One day, I was no angry that he was deliberately pulling me down. Do you want to know what his response was?

[1/29, 8:39 AM] mdmawere1: Do you agree that in the group and in any respects, you and I are equal?

If so, I have no time and place to change your mind.

Education only exists for the people who wish to learn but clearly you seem to know everything and any different view to you is an attack on you.

Imagine you were the President of a country and someone known to you gives another view than yours, what would follow?
