[Updated here to point out and reflect on what the real inventions or innovations are, according to Saith Technologies]
We have just been to the Saith Technologies Open Day and a lot of what we witnessed has to be the next thing in energy and communication not just in Zimbabwe but possibly in the world.
Sangulani (Maxwell) Chikumbutso is a Zimbabwean inventor who has come up with various disruptive technologies that will shift the way science is working. In fact he says he has come up with the inventions that according to him, “defy the laws of physics” and to that extent he has found difficulty in getting some of his stuff patented worldwide.

Among the prototypes on exhibit today were an electricity powered car (Saith EV) that Saith Technologies says is way better than Tesla’s, a helicopter (Saith Hex_Copter) that works on five fuels, Microsonic powered generator (Greener Power Machine), locally manufactured (not assembled) drone, surveillance towers, mobile broadcast communication backpack, intelligent IP Mesh backpack and household transformer that can multiply power a hundredfold.
We will be following up with Chikumbutso to get finer details about how his inventions work.
Here are some of the prototypes in pictures.
