An activist and author from Zimbabwe who writes commentary, analysis and opinion articles frequently for the local media in that country. He is also an advertising creative by profession and a partner in one of Zimbabwe's largest advertising agencies.
I am very interested in the power of social media to influence real change in the Third World and especially in Africa. With censorship still very active in Africa, I believe that social media has the power to circumvent all this and bring news that would otherwise be buried to a global audience. My passions are writing, reading, traveling, especially in the more isolated and remote parts of my own country, Zimbabwe.
Currently a media adviser to one of Zimbabwe's presidential candidates in the inconclusive March 2008 presidential election
He was educated in Zimbabwe and Canada and has spent some time living in the United Kingdom and Namibia.
He lives in Harare, Zimbabwe and writes from there.
