Sokhulu speaks:

As long as we remain a consumer society without producing, no amount of politics can solve the economic conundrum.
2/ As long as our communities remain captured by donors through food aid and our villagers remain lazy, seated on land they got from government through the land reform program, talking about economic revival is just a pipe dream.
3/ As long long our our youths spend 90% of their time denigrating their country on social media and looking for someone to come from Europe to open a company for them to get employed, we will get poorer and weaker as a country until there is no more country left.

1/ You are the change you have been waiting for!

Make a difference. One of the most powerful quotes that I have kept inside of that treasure chest near my heart is from Mahatma Gandhi. "Be the change you want to see in the world". Let that sit with you for minute. Female Human Rights Defender of the year 2016
2/ I used to be that person who blamed the world and the people in it for everything that went wrong. I was literally out of control, paying no attention to the true difference and change I could make by being in control of my thoughts, habits and behaviors. #YouAreTheChange
3/ Remember that thoughts shape our habits and the habits shape our behaviors. Behaviorsbecome who you are and what you do. This determines the change you want or don't want. It's up to you Champion.

Stop trying to wait for people to change. #YouAreTheChampion #YouAreTheChange

1/ Labour Economists and Afrikan Democrats (LEAD) is a Pan African founded social democratic party believing that Africa and Zimbabwe in particular must come up with solutions that work for their own people without undue influence from any external forces.
2/ Zimbabwe is for Zimbabweans and any foreign proffered solutions should be treated with extreme caution. Lessons from ESAP in Zimbabwe considering its failures abroad can explain the level of hypocrisy by foreigners & any reasonable person must realize that only Zimbabweans...
3/...will bring solutions for the betterment of our country. After going through the Acacia Mining Scandal in Tanzania, Labour Economists and Afrikan Democrats (LEAD) realized that creating a favourable business environment must never come at the expense of ordinary citizens...

1/ #LEADonNationBuilding
As the world continues to focus much of its attention towards the current unrest due to Covid-19, Labour Economists and Afrikan Democrats (LEAD) is busy trying to come up with solutions that can see Zimbabwe emerging as a victor.
2/ We have to foster a culture of consuming local products and not imports, to save foreign currency and encourage innovation. The government has to create more enticing incentives for local innovation, production and problem solving, while penalizing nonproductive imports.
3/ The process of building innovation requires our citizens in other parts of the world to systematically gather and transfer information, industrial secrets, blueprints, technology, designs and trade secrets from leading institutions across the world, into a technology...

1/ We have been talking about the importance of internet connection & quality education for all for nearly a decade now. It is a noble idea to do online education, unfortunately it's not feasible in Zimbabwe because most rural areas have no internet connection, electricity,...
2/... very few families can afford the gadgets to have online education. Sometime in 2018, I suggested to our Ministry of ICT to consider the option of using google balloons in rural areas so that everyone could access free internet provided for by government. @Min_ICTCS_ZW
3/ We need to be proactive when it comes to critical matters like right to education, right to health, right to water and right to life. Going forward our government should stop the reactionary approach and start putting Zimbabweans interests first. @MoHCCZim @Min_ICTCS_ZW

1/ In as much as we had to combat the spread of #covid19 virus, the copy and paste #lockdown approach which most African countries adopted from Europe will destroy Afrika. People are starving with no hope of getting aid. The aftermath is now more scary than the virus itself.
2/ We made a mistake by adopting European methods to combat #coronavirus. I am truly concerned about the aftermath. We had to acknowledge our existing problems. The poverty, hunger and recession during the aftermath is what is going to kill Africans not the virus itself. @KDVAMBE
3/ African leaders need to restrategize and pay attention to our economic climate. We are not paying attention to our global financial positioning, we don't have the economic standing that Europe has. We can't afford to take care of our own people. #COVID2019 #CoronavirusPandemic

Lamp of hope.
Five lamps were burning inside a house. The 1st lamp was that of Enthusiasm. One day it said, “I am getting bored and tired. I think it's better to die. Nobody cares for me. To keep burning is futile.” Thinking so, it got extinguished.
Seeing the lamp of enthusiasm go out, the second lamp—that of Courage—lost its courage and went out too. The third lamp—that of Peace—said, “Without enthusiasm and courage, I feel desolate and not at ease.” Saying so, its flame too faded away.
The fourth lamp was that of Prosperity. It felt lonely after three of its companions had passed away. Considering that there was no point in staying lit in the house without enthusiasm, courage or peace, it went out too.

20 Mar 2020, Our President @MichaelDDavisJr submitted a letter on behalf of American Chamber of Commerce of Uganda members to @OPMUganda regarding clarifications on some of @KagutaMuseveni 's speech points. Specifically - See thread
1.Import of Goods & Raw Materials: Clarification on procedures for import & export Kenya, TZ, RW, DRC, and SoSud not Cat 1 Should be free movement across the border. Need to smooth logistics & transportation process to avoid delays in supply chain, deliveries, and production
2.Support for #BUBU initiatives: AmCham believes @GovUganda should focus current laws & policies on ensuring BUBU initiatives are implemented. Many companies could use juice puree from local fruit but are unable to due to interpretation of the law

2/...of Health and child care Obadiah Moyo and lady luck hasn't been on her side. As such we are making a public appeal to the health Ministry to respond to some of our concerns as a party.We are concerned as a party about the level of preparedness in our healthcare institutions.
3/ What resources are in place to curb the spread of covid19? In the event that one has been diagnosed with the virus how is the case going to be contained? Do we even have a practical action plan? If we do, we demand to know as concerned citizens. Most pharmacies don't eve...

Cognizant of the fact that every Presidential election is a power contest and that everyone goes into an election expecting to win but there can only be one winner and several losers depending...

1/ Is @ReserveBankZIM part of the cartel or an accomplice? Zimbabwe’s problems started in the banking service when a total of 20 Banks closed in the last 20 years. That is one bank every year!!! The Zimbabwe’s currency has changed several times with the latest being the ZWL...
2/...depositors have lost millions of dollars due to bank closures, yet no one has been arrested or convicted. It is in the public domain who the thieving directors &executives are. Zim’s problem is not the cartels only but the Reserve Bank of Zim(RBZ) which is Zim’s central bank
3/ The role of the central bank is to control the money supply in Zimbabwe’s economy. It is responsible for issuing currency on behalf of the government. These are two problems that Zimbabwe is suffering from. #EconomicSaboteursMustFall

1/ From the bottom of my heart… I am deeply saddened and heartbroken by the current state of affairs in my country. Some of my erstwhile Comrades are plotting to use violence saying it has been a long time coming and long overdue.
#PeaceMaker #TogetherWeCan #teamZimbabwe
2/ Let me hasten to give reproach & quip; Violence begets violence. One’s freedom of speech should never infringe on other people’s rights. One might wonder what has brought on this melancholy, so let me give you dear reader, a brief overview. #TogetherWeCan #TikabatanaTinokunda
3/ Zimbabwe attained its independence after a second guerrilla warfare dubbed the Second Chimurenga war. At independence in 1980 government was occupied by war veterans who were still dealing with war trauma, of which some to date never got counselling. #TeamZimbabwe

Some selected highlights from a wonderful talk on diversity in medicine from the great @DrQuinnCapers4.

First: we have been calling for diversity in medicine for decades and haven’t been able to move the needle.

(A thread)

There is a leaky pipeline. We lose URMs at a number of spots. The biggest determinant of premed students changing their major was chemistry.

As a former chemistry TA, we can do better than this.

There are real, unconscionable health consequences to lack of diversity.

-women less likely than men to receive AICD when indicated
-black and Hispanic patients less likely to get revascularization (more likely to get amputation) for lower extremity PVD

Ahead of the #WorldOceansDay, we want to share with you a wonderful story 📘✨ we just received from Germany (thread 👇🏼)

A dead sperm whale full of plastic.

A little boy, Lennard, so impressed that he asked how he could help marine animals...

Lennard (3) did not want to wait to go on a beach to pick plastic.

He decided to act now, with his friends from the kindergarten.

He was right: even if you live in Monheim 🇩🇪, at 250 kms from the sea, less trash in Nature means less dead 🐋

or 🐦🐬🦈🐠

2/3 #WorldOceansDay
We dedicate this #WorldOceansDay to Lennard, the Düsseldorf aquarium & the 181 other aquariums from 41 countries working with us to #BeatPlasticPollution
