Of Coffee With The Professional

Coffee with the professional

If you were having coffee with me I would be happy to have you visit. I would lean over and whisper, “You probably think I am a coffee aficionado, guess what? I am faking it” I read somewhere that a real coffee lover takes theirs with no milk or sugar. I cant seem to find sugar at the shops so I am trying sugarless coffee *takes a sip* yep its definitely an acquired taste.


I might not be a true coffee connoisseur but I am definitely Becoming The Muse every step leading me to be who I should be, I am professional, and I got a friendly email remainder about how I should not keep it secret.

If you were having coffee with me, I would be pleased to announce that on Wednesday I had the honour of hosting a Tribe of Influencers #Zimfluential Masterclass on The Blogging Culture of the Global South.

The blogging culture of the global south

The blogging trend is rising but a lot of people are still not quite fully awake to its potential; that its more than simply a hobby or an online diary, its so much more; of course the prohibitive cost of data according to a report released by the Alliance for Affordable internet shows that in developing countries 1gigabyte of internet data on average costs about 2.5-5.5% of the average monthly income.

Would you rather starve or have internet? I say how about making sure the internet gets you connected with not just an audience but a market……

If you were having coffee with me I would tell you that at a press conference the president announced oil had been found in the Muzarabani area of Zimbabwe.

oil found in zimbabwe

Before you start celebrating or even figuring out how such a resource would best be utilized to benefit the country; one might want to take that with a pinch of salt the company they working with released a cautionary statement that says what they found are markers that indicate a working petroleum system but haven’t done any feasibility studies or explorative well…..

invictus energy

Actually correction what they used were reports compiled by the Mobil oil company in the 90s….  wait have we always known about this oil possibility?

Statement from president

The government just like its citizenry is so desperate for a break that it isn’t infallible to scams, once a traditional healer/spirit medium had government officials walking around barefoot convinced that she could conjure diesel out of a rock in Chinhoyi


…….and then on the other hand you have pastors and prophets promising years of breakthrough deliverance, miracle money and miracle cures to a flocking congregation….

If you were having coffee with me I would tell you that someone hired to be chief of a Communication taskforce by Minister of finance; turned whistleblower on Reserve Bank officials who were fueling and dealing the forex/cash black market and then dismissed from the job in three days is  reported in the press as having been paid $40 000 to spill the beans…….


Oh wait and of course he in turn took to social media to deny being paid and apologise for being a pawn in the power games of the political sphere….

Public apology Acie Lumumba

Its so hard to know what to believe, in a world you have to fact check everything you see, read and hear but I can write about it from my perspective and that is why I blog.

If you must be anything be professional; have an awesome week


Africa connected

PS yeah because if you randomly ended upon on this post please do say hello and lets connect; even drop a link to the post you think I should check out and if you see any interesting links in the comments do check them out cause we roll with awesome company



  1. Hello Beaton. Congrats (I think) on your part in the blog review, crush effort. I almost can’t decide if I’m thrilled for those bloggers being crushed or sorry for them. It sounds like they will see a huge uptick in the number of readers for at least a short period and also lots of feedback. New guys like me would both relish and shudder at such an opportunity. My little effort is so simple because I try to keep it clean and easy to use but also because WordPress doesn’t try to give us free site users much in the way of advanced features or layout. Boy – but all those readers trying to evaluate your blog site would be cool and instructive.

    I’m already too tired in the week to take a swipe at your country’s oil news. I have little doubt those in control of the government will find ways to keep most of the returns for themselves, but I hope at least some comfort trickles down to normal families.

    Blessings my friend.
