BOAF IN MOTION – Towards an open, inclusive, and accountable future of Africa – powered by BOAF CIVICS LITERACY – A conversation between Mr. Mawere & Mr. Tafara Moyo on the urgency and need to shape and define fact-based narratives as a foundation to build the Africa that is missing in action.



Africa is dark at midnight because absent the rule of law and the protection provided by a value-centric civilization, the few shinning stars provide no aspirational pathways to the Africa that is often missing.

“I was inspired to join the Banking on Africa’s Future’s (BOAF) initiative to provoke, ignite and inspire the voluntary conversion of connections2community (C2C) and in so doing build community-centric value-driven and forward leaning problem solving.

Disputes around the history of Africa and the facts therein will not end by dwelling on them and the Ghosts that define the past lived by others.

It is against this background that I have changed my worldview of the practice of copying threads shared directly and indirectly on WhatsApp groups as a violation of privacy and confidentiality especially given the propensity of journalists to weaponize lies as facts simply to win awards for some and to earn a salary for many.

I believe as members of BOAF, we are on the right path in using the platform to share and interrogate insights, ideas, experiences and knowledge on issues that matter.

It is our business as members to provoke the shifting of paradigms so that the consequence can be active citizenship.

Set out below is a thread between Mr. Mawere, a member of BOAF, and another member, Mr. Tafara Moyo from which the idea of memoir as proposed by Mr. Mucha Mugota, in relation to Mr. Mawere can properly be understood and acted upon by all who may be interested in the acquisition, diversification and demise of SMM Holdings Private Limited (SMM).

Allegations of betrayal, crony capitalism, looting of public funds have been made and yet the true story remains hidden in the minds of a few,” said Ms. Kimberly Mapfumo, a BOAF member based in Harare, Zimbabwe.

Please follow this thread as a decision support instrument to decide whether you wish to be part of this community power building campaign to use connectivity to promote, protect and defend a civilization that does not celebrate statism and the hijack of the project to shape and define the future character and personality as an open, transparent, and accountable ecosystem in which the duty to protect the rule of law is binding on all persons.

[12/1/2022, 5:52 PM] Tafara Moyo: MM

You acquired SMM at the age of 36

Therefter you established TAP,SAS and other established 20 or so componies

Evidently you bacame the Wall Street of Zimbabwe

Your corporate and being a captain of industry put you so close to being a kingmaker in Zim politics

Zanu Pf tried to recruit and lure you into their rank and file

The fact that you could organise dinners for the then President Mugabe when he visited US speaks volumes to the gravitas you had towards kingmakingship in Zim politics

Politicians became afraid of you and a scheme to disarm you was rolled into motion

SMM Recon and the divestment is the rest of the story.
Succession in Zanu began in earnest in 2004
After Muzenda had died
To ringfence and shut out ED ..a woman’s qouta was introduced in the Presidium to which ED and his allies believe you played a part and influenced it
My point is it is more enterprising for you and me to challenge the status quo politically
Is this from you or you are just trying to provoke?
Its from me
By the very nature of your personality one day or the other you are destined to be a president of this country

Serve your motherland in justice and equality and then peacefully join your ancestors
Are you aware that your understanding departs from the facts in the matter. I thought you would by now one of the knowledgeable persons having been in the FOSMM and other groups.?

1 Are you aware that I, the person, did not acquire SMM?

It departs from what is factually available given the covetous and subtleness employed in the opaqueness to divest and deprive you of control of every compony deemed to be under your control.

You were the Chairman of ARL
ARL did
Boaf,Jurol are beautiful ideas but we must wed and betroth these two beautiful ideas into marriage with mainstream politics
Myb its because i dnt subscribe to civics not backed by radicalism.

1a Are you aware that the holder of the SMMH shares was a wholly owned subsidiary of ARL?

And you being the Chairman
What is the distance between here in Zvishavane where Iam and the World Bank in downdown Manhattan district of Newyork
You workes there as a banker

Bankers work with policies right
Its time for us to evaluate FOSMM and Jurol efforts and upgrade it to what can arrest this political rot
Mutumwa Dziva Mawere for President in 2023
What a beautiful Idea

I can pontificate
The World Bank is located in Washington DC and not New York.
If you could simply answer saying Yes or No, this chat could be of help to others like you. Do you know the shareholder of record in relation to the affairs of SMM’s sole parent at the time of acquisition? Simply say Y or N. And then indicate if you would like to improve your literacy on the matter.
Right what was th duties of a somebody like you at the World Bank

Its obvious the retail services there involved nations
I thought we were talking about the information you seem not to have so that henceforth you can speak to what is fact and not create your own narratives? Do you accept that you don’t the shareholding lineage from SMM to Me?
This is false – “Thereafter you established TAP,SAS and other established 20 or so companies,” confirming that you have not read the Sale and Purchase Agreement. Do you want to read it so that you can ac
acquaint yourself with facts.
This is not good for it makes my life miserable repeating what I think should be common cause.
Let me read it,-kindly furnish me with it
[2/8, 5:41 AM] mdmawere1: https://www.herald.co.zw/cfi-ventures-into-low-cost-housing/
[2/8, 7:57 AM] Tapiwa Machiri1: Was this not your Sekuru
[2/8, 7:57 AM] Tapiwa Machiri1: I.e. CFI
[2/8, 7:57 AM] Tapiwa Machiri1: Was this not part of the companies that were affected by the recon act?
[2/8, 7:59 AM] Tapiwa Machiri1: @Mpasiri please refresh my memory
[2/8, 7:59 AM] Tapiwa Machiri1: Did you not lodge an application
[2/8, 8:00 AM] Tapiwa Machiri1: Regarding the constitutional validity and legality of the application of the recon act, a law that is inconsistent with the constitution of Zim, in relation to the affairs of cfi
Should this not be used as a cause for you to be a member of the BOAF MEMOIR CAMPAIGN to avoid the one-to-one expensive discourses? If after so many squandered hours, you can still get it wrong, should we not use publicly available and convenient to provoke, ignite and inspire learning, unlearning and relearning?

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:”
