Zimbabwean businessman Moreboys Munetsi has denied that he is joing the Democratic Alliance, despite posing for pictures with controversial DA leader Mmusi Maimane.
Munetsi, who is a public figure and a prominent member of the Zimbabweans in Cape Town community, posted a recent picture of himself with Maimane on social media, and engaged in banter with his friends on Facebook, in which he flatly denied that he was gunning to become a member of the blue corner of SA politics.
Social media enthusiasts reacted with excitement after Munetsi, who is CEO of Maranatha Holdings and is a Creative Director at Zororo-Phumulani Funeral Plan South Africa, showed his true colours, and how he is friends with some of the influential people in SA politics
“(Maimane) is my friend, and we talk a lot. I will be in parliament soon…,” Munetsi said. “(Mmusi is still mentoring me…”
Munetsi’s friend Lorna Meyering reacted, saying Munetsi amazed her by his high-class friendships, adding that she loved Maimane, and wished that he would be SA’s next President, with Thuli Madonsela as Vice President.
Pressed further as to whether Munetsi was on the DA side, Munetsi said that he was busy talking with the DA, and specifically mentioned that the DA Mayor in Joburg, Herman Mashaba, has been making reckless statements about foreigners. “So I am busy engaging with them.”
Meyering continued with her discussion on social media with Munetsi, quizzing him as to why he was posing with Mmusi Maimane if he was not on the DA side, even if the blues are doing a good job in the metro cities, mentioning Pretoria. “But after you have spoken to the DA people, you will be in the DA. Communication is the name of the game,” said Meyering.
The discussion raged on further with Melody Kucherera saying on Facebook about Munetsi’s associates: “That’s my blood brother with our President… everyone…”
Munetsi is one of the most proficient businessman among the Zimbabweans Living in Cape Town.
He attained stardom after our sister newspaper skynewszimbabwe.com published his story on our multitude of platforms last year. see link: http://skynewszimbabwe.com/2016/05/17/wave-makers-of-zimbabwe-moreboys-munetsi-a-man-of-many-more-dreams/
The article went viral, and was read at Munetsi’s Mukombabani High school by the school headmaster who used the article as a way to motivate the youths, that if they worked hard they would make the news.
He credits the community and churches for supporting him. In return the company also assists fellow Zimbabweans who struggle to repatriate their beloved ones. There are situations where people really don’t have money to take their deceased to Zimbabwe.
At the time in this newspaper Munetsi told our readers that he grew up in the Zimbabwean villages and doing what everyone who grew up in the village is accustomed to – herding cattle, kubata ishwa, hunting animals, catching birds etc.
Zororo Phumulani was voted business organisation of the year in 2015 at Cape Town Zimbabwe Excellence awards.
Munetsi is also involved in a company called Mfs tracker which started operating last year.
Another opportunity that was up for taking when he noticed that many cars were stolen and recovering them was a challenge especially for foreigners with no legal documents, who are scared to go to the police to make reports.
The company uses the latest technology to track vehicles, monitor speed, monitor who is driving vehicles, and roadside assistance.
Moreboys is a man of more dreams and this is what he had to say “We have MFS Tracker, soon there will be MFS Bank and MFS transport”.
Only this week he launched a new credit card for Zimbabweans living in SA. Ur Card will be launched this week. In it he said “You are able to recieve your salary without any challenge. Excellent benefits being offered include hospital cover. Your salary is paid direct into your master card account. We going to do massive recruitment for admin staff and sales and marketing. We will inform you during the week the official launch of the card,” said Munetsi.
