[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?

Here are the facts:

THE COCA COLA COMPANY (TCCC) acquired THE ENTIRE ISSUED SHARE CAPITAL OF CADBURY SCHWEPPES PLC resulting in the control and management of the global Schweppes businesses into TCCC value chains including Schweppes Zimbabwe Limited (SZL), a company incorporated in terms of the laws of Zimbabwe.

Mr. Brian Musekiwa, a Zimbabwean-born professional based in Texas, USA, said: “I had no idea of the SZL matter and its intersection with the SMM Holdings Private Limited (SMM) affair until I joined the Justice Under Rule of Law’s (JUROL) corporate heritage and legal literacy campaign powered by the Banking on Africa’s Future (BOAF) of which I am a paid up member. I have followed the SZL saga with keen interest not because of the Zimbabwe angle but because TCCC is a global corporate icon and just the idea that this company was party to an extortion and corrupt deal involving the payment of $2.7 million to Chinamasa, Mnangagwa’s key 2017 coup ally, is chilling leading any person like me to want to know if there exists any causal link between the complicity of TCCC’s alleged corrupt practices and conduct in relation to the affairs of the SZL localization and upgrade program concluded with Africa Resources Limited (ARL), a private company incorporated in terms of the laws of the BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS (BVI) and wholly owned by Mr. Mutumwa Mawere, a Zimbabwean born South African naturalized citizen, who Mnangagwa and Chinamasa using Messrs. Edwin Manikai and Afaras Gwaradzimba as surrogates, and the extrajudicial and the unconscionable theft of the control and management of SZL and other juristic entities using an unprecedented draconian and barbaric law called the Reconstruction of State-Indebted Insolvent Companies Act that was authored by Mnangagwa to bridge him to state power.”

Mr. Cornwell Mutetwa, a Zimbabwean businesan said: “I naively thought that the reconstruction project was solely premised on the affairs of SMM as a company and not on the person of Mawere and his alleged interests in companies like SZL.

I am pleased that Mr. Mucha Mugore, a member of BOAF-JUROL, inspired by findings in his MBA dissertation research on how public power was abused in expropriating Mawere’s relationships with not only SMM but many separate and distinct juristic entities, provoked in a whatsapp group that the record of this sad chapter in the corporate history of Zimbabwe must be corrected preferably in form of a memoir written by Mawere.

I was encouraged and remain so that I have flins myself being part of this noble project that has enabled me to interface with Mr. Mawere who has generously downloaded critical information that hitherto has not been in the public domain. I had no idea that Coca Cola Holdings Netherlands (CCHN) was directly and indirectly involved in the affairs of SZL until I read this:

Having understood that it was the Zimbabwe Competition and Tariffs Commission (TCTC) was weaponized to have jurisdiction beyond its mandate to regulate competition issues to become relevant in prescribing localization matters, I began to understand that under the late Mugabe’s watch the governance system was already broken.

My memory was then provoked to appreciate why the former Minister of Indigenization, Hon Kasukuwere, had a hand in the SZL matter and used his public office to cause ZCTC to require as a condition for approving that the control and management of SZL be divested and deprived from TCCC using public power.

It is against this background that the extortion inherent in the extract below from a meeting between SZL’s then SA-based legal counsel, an employee of Coca Cola South Africa Pty Limited, a private company incorporated in terms of the laws of SA, can properly be understood:

It was made clear to CCSA that unless a payment of $2.7 million was paid to the order of Fidelity Life Asset Management (FLAM) and SMM under Chinamasa’s control through his appointee, Gwaradzimba, the ARL purchased equipment imported from Europe and delivered to SZL as part of the upgrade project, would not be released to an SZL controlled by CCSA until a ransom amount of $2.7 million was paid to the order of Chinamasa.

On the advise of Gwaradzimba whose relationship with SMM was a consequence of a decree and an order issued by Chinamasa with no judicial involvement, CCSA according to Mr. Mokwena, in his capacity as the legal counsel of both SZL and CCSA, was advised by Gwaradzimba and accepted his advise to part with a bribery of $2.7 in million to cause Chinamasa to exercise public power to issue a notice removing SZL from the purported and unlawful and invalid control by Gwaradzimba using the order issued by Chinamasa in relation to SMM affairs only.

It is chilling that Chinamasa used public power to issue a notice dates 26 January 2006 and through his appointee was rewarded with a secret gift of $2.7 million to the prejudice of ARL and its sole shareholder, Mr. Mawere.”

Mr. Peter Makoni, an attorney and a member of BOAF-JUROL, said: “I have had the opportunity to read and understand the sequence of events leading to the confiscation of equipment acquired by ARL using the personal agency of Mr. Mawere as set out below:

It is clear from the fax above that neither FLAM nor SMM under reconstruction were involved in the SZL matter as promoters and sponsors to permit any lawful payment of a bribe of $2.7 million to Chinamasa using cronies like Gwaradzimba and Manikai.

Having concluded that Chinamasa was unjustly enriched to the tune of $2.7 million based on fraudulent representation that the $2.7 million that ARL, a company whose affairs fell outside the jurisdiction of Zimbabwe and, therefore Chinamasa and his surrogates, in exchange for a government gazette to divest and deprive ARL of the control and management of the upgrade equipment that was conveyed by Petter Trading Pty Limited as ARL’s agent, received pocket money to be used for ulterior motives in the amount of $2.7 million from CCSA.

It would please anyone interested in building a future of not only Zimbabwe but Africa that is characterized by the respect of the rule of law to take notice of the documents in the flipbook below:”
