[6:50 AM, 10/26/2017] Tapuwa Chitambo: I have been meeting with friends and was surprised at how people easily concluded that Mawere got assisted by the system to acquire interests in the shabanie Mashaba mines. Easy how people are quick to conclude that Mawere is a ZANU pf agent who fell on the wrong side of the looting Mafia.
[6:51 AM, 10/26/2017] Tapuwa Chitambo: How people argue passionately yet lack facts and being presented with the facts a few accept the truths.
[7:17 AM, 10/26/2017] MD Mawere: That is why advocacy is important
[7:20 AM, 10/26/2017] Tapuwa Chitambo: Yes it’s surprising really, and funny how people don’t want to hunt for the facts but at the same time be quick to judge in their ignorance. Even those who pretend to be learned.
[7:22 AM, 10/26/2017] Tapuwa Chitambo: Also I think there is need to visit and revisit the facts from the beginning, how they got distorted along the way and their implications to the future.
Our vision is to become a trusted and premier platform for networking, collaboration, knowledge creation and sharing for stakeholders interested in enriching and broadening their analytical and conceptual understanding of the often forgotten role of African corporate citizens and their actors in bridging the gaps of poverty, inequality and unemployment.
Our mission is to invest through sharing of experiences on issues related to the role that the state and non-state actors including firms, institutions and their actors can play in delivering the promise of inclusive, caring, prosperous, sustainable and progressive human societies.
We believe that fundamental concepts like the rule of law, property rights and constitutionalism are best understood using real life and contemporary empirical case studies like the classic case of SMM Holdings (Pvt) Ltd (SMM), a company born in 1908 and ceased operations at the instigation and direct hand of the government of Zimbabwe.
