Strive e-magination works overtime. What is the meaning of Strive? Strive means to try very hard to do something or to make something happen, especially for a long time or against difficulties. The man works very hard .He came across mountains, valleys, sharks, champions and BiG CVs in establishing Econet to Kwese TV. Strive is a principled and a focused gentleman.

"Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don't complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don't bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality. Wake Up and Live!" – Bob Marley . Masiyiwa is a product of lifetime refinery just by his experiences on his journey to Success.He is the founder ,Visionary and executive chairman of diversified international telecommunications group Econet Wireles and sits on boards other philanthropic international influential organization aside of a handful of trendsetting for profit corporates he has founded.

Lee Shau Kee once said , "Work hard and persevere. Clear enough", "save your first bucket of gold" – or small fortune - from work, but then use it for investments. Don't just park money in the bank. "For men, find a job that you will be happy with and work hard at. Women, in line with an old Chinese proverb, should marry the right man. Don't marry too early in life. It's better to work hard when young and establish a career first. For those already successful, money can become a controlling factor in life and make you a slave to it. One way to avoid that: Philanthropy. Giving away money to the right cause, with a leveraged effect and your own involvement in how it is spent, will give you peace of mind; try to maximize the number of people that can benefit from an individual contribution". Masiyiwa has used his wealth to provide scholarships to over 100,000 young Africans over the past 20 years through his family foundation. He supports over 40,000 orphans with educational initiatives, as well as sponsoring students at universities in America, the United Kingdom, and China. Masiyiwa also funds initiatives in public health and agriculture across the African continent.

The Broadcasting Authority Of Zimbabwe ,what they did by stripping off Kwese Tv from air its disingenuous. Other nations are now enjoying the brain storming innovation of our own son of the soil. Kwese Tv have been welcomed in many nations here in Africa including Nigeria and South Africa who are at advantageous state in terms of economy. The Zimbabwe High Court gave a green light for Kwese Tv to operate in Zimbabwe. The B.A.Z came back again and said ," it's illegal". Ask, why our economy is ailing ? We want betterment of our people , others are saying no . For , how long my beloved countrymen we are going to block each other. I once came with an initiative of low costing housing in collaboration with Spanish company I took the concept to the responsible authority board for approval and they showed interest over the houses.As time progresses ,as I was making follow up , they told me we can't see your file . The Spanish company ended up shifting goal posts going to other countries. We are our own stumbling block fellow countrymen . Kwese Tv is going to bring foreign currency which is needed in the country ,creation of employment and infrastructure . How many have been blocked by the deficit in proper handling of our policies beside Kwese T.v. We are all Zimbabweans . Every Zimbabwean has full legal right of ownership of this nation and to upgrade the betterment of it.

I am inspired and a passion to meet Strive Masiyiwa , Bishop T.D Jakes and Barack Obama .
