    1. He is supposed to be the President of Zimbabwe not to give donations to a few. He should accept his calling. God blesses you when you give what he intends you to give. When you give out money when you are supposed to give out political leadership and governance you would have wasted money. It doesn’t count before God though the people celebrate and benefit

      1. If Strive ever becomes president: 1) he will have to divest from Econet, 2) if doesnt divest, he will have an obligation to improve the services of his competitors – netone, telone, telecel

  1. What is motivating Strive to offer money to Drs? I don’t think it’s appropriate for him to takeover govt’s responsibility for remunerating Drs. If he continues to meddle with Zim politics it will be to his demice.
