Mawere's book sold out

HARARE - A book by businessman Mutumwa Mawere launched in Harare last week has sold out.

Mawere launched his book entitled When Minds Meet in Harare on Thursday evening.

Leroy Murape, a spokesperson of Africa Heritage Society, a non-profit making organisation founded by Mawere in 2003, told the Daily News that they had underestimated the response to their book.

“We brought in 5 000 copies but by end of day Saturday we had ran out of copies.

“The response has been overwhelming,” said Murape.

“We are now in discussions with bookshops and sellers so that we can bring in the next consignment.”

When Minds Meet highlights the gaps that exist in Africa and seeks to address poverty, inequalities and unemployment on the African continent through sharing of ideas.

“The primary motivation to add my voice to issues that matter to the future of our continent and our people was premised on a recognition that nothing is inevitable in life,” Mawere told the Daily News before the book launch in the capital last week.

“It is in the context of knowledge building and raising awareness on the role of firms and individuals who work in the them in building inclusive, cohesive and prosperous societies that I thought it is important for me to be the catalyst through words of a new conversation that seeks to connect, equip and motivate Africans to dream and convert such dreams into real life experiences”.

Africa Heritage Society is the main driver of the book which is being sold online apart from the hard copy.

The society is a member-based organisation founded out of the conviction that the identity and citizenship of Africa can be better negotiated only if the majority of its inhabitants fully understand the reason why other human beings in the past could leave their places of birth in search of a better life in Africa while the majority of our people work on their dashes believing that someone out there has an obligation to deliver a prosperous life. - Guthrie Munyuki
