On 16 May we launched our MyZimbabwe campaign. This campaign is a call to action to Zimbabweans everywhere to look forward into a future filled with hope. We stand on the brink of a new tomorrow and we need to face it with confidence and unity. We need your help to make this a reality. Please support us and:
Add an article about the campaign to your newsletter or blog. Ask us for content and images.
Add a campaign banner on your website. We can email you options.
Follow us on Twitter and tweet your hopes for Zim using #myzim, and RT our tweets.
Share the call to action from our Facebook page, like and comment. www.facebook.com/thezimbabweanonline

You can also:
Print posters and leaflets for your office and events. Ask us for artwork.
Speak to people and tell them about the campaign. Encourage colleagues, friends and family to participate.
Encourage others to make their voices heard via our dedicated sms code (0771246400). Send your own message.
Through these platforms the voices of the voiceless will be heard right across the world. We are Zimbabweans. We have a future and a hope. The aim is to unite us all behind a single cause – bringing Zimbabweans, wherever they might be, together around a single powerful idea.

This is a viral campaign that searches out the voices of Zimbabweans – their hopes and dreams for a better future for our country – and gives them wings by communicating them on every available platform.
Since we began in 2005 The Zimbabwean has always been about access to information, in the belief that people deserve to know. We hope the MyZimbabwe campaign will take this commitment to a new level of community participation and freedom of expression.
We value your support.

Baba Jukwa: Noted. Let’s do a private arrangement. Can you afford to pay me if I market your paper? I will do it daily on my page but strategical, don’t worry it will be whereby they won’t notice we dealing business together. I can carry all your campaigns even this current one, but make sure you don’t involve your editor in this Tawanda Majoni who is an operative in our venture.

He might behave strangely that we are hunting him down just to manipulate you, but he is an operative and his task was to make sure that your paper does not get far as you did in 2008. He also brought along his team who are informers like his cousin Gweshe who he stays with.

Be careful towards him. I will get his call sign and operation name for you one day. So far I have started marketing your paper check my status update. I have a total reach of more than half a million people weekly, so if you ready to talk business get back to me and your paper will be a hit in Southern Africa and World not only Zimbabwe.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Regards

Baba Jukwa: Greetings to you, I am doing a follow-up to my message, did you get it or it was sparmed?

June 3, 2013
Mbanga: Received thanks. will get back to you very shortly.
Mbanga: Thank you for your email. We would like to invite  you file a weekly column for The Zimbabwean – around 750 words to be received by 10 am every Monday morning as a word document please. for this we could offer payment of US$50 per week. we will keep it confidential between us – you can send direct to this email address. would be better if you could give us an SA bank account to which we can transfer the money. Or else what other ideas do you have about how payment can be effected?

Thank you for marketing our paper – but we have received no increase in traffic as we would have expected to see given your following? Our stats following your post remained pretty static. Have you any ideas why that would be?
Kind regrds

Mbanga: Stats FYI – pse advise how we can increase this?? : His post on Fri/sat linking to your article did not spike webtraffic as I would have expected given his following… I would have thought he could spike it far more than we did the previous week with posting links.

Baba Jukwa: Thanks for your feedback will be waiting for you.
Baba Jukwa: Thanks a lot will give you SA bank account details, and don’t worry I will tell all my followers to buy your paper as I will have a weekly column and watch out how they will buy it. Give me places where they can buy it countrywide. Also for us to kick start everything, l will give you a column for this week
Regards

Mbanga: Ok thanks – when can you send it through?? On tight deadline right now!

Baba Jukwa: Can I send it in the next 3 hours as I am in a meeting now?

Mbanga: Ok thanks. If that is definite will hold the pages.

 Baba Jukwa: Positive definitely

Mbanga: Great! Many thanks

Baba Jukwa: Sorry for taking time, I am in a tight meeting but you can use this which I gave you and feel free to edit and put more direction to it. I would appreciate if you put it in a colour format so the people know of it and you can urge people beneath that they should go in numbers and like Baba Jukwa page and pass on the messages to people in rural areas. I will be pushing your market strategy wait and see.

Mbanga: Urgent please – may we have your comments on this story for the front page.

Baba Jukwa: Thanks a lot for coming to me. I am very aware of happenings within State House, and then I know this story after my sources gave it to me. This is very true the man who missed his target Tsvangirai and took out his wife always cried and if you remember sometime last week I did a brief of this story. I understand this man is now in hiding but his family including brothers, kids and wife are being held as baits.

Now my take is opposition parties and civic organisations should approach SADC to intervene before these people are killed or pronounced as dead. It’s high time SADC and African Union take Zim issues seriously because a lot of evil things go unattended.

To Tsvangirai family and Zimbabwe I think they should forgive the man who has reformed and came out forward openly about his past evil deeds and giving closure to what really happened to their mother. Zimbabweans should embrace this man as he is another step to the light of a New Zimbabwe.

Lastly is the column coming so I start telling people to buy the paper as it will have another expose of Border Gezi among others.
Regards

Mbanga: Thanks very much. Yes column is coming out in this issue.  more later. On deadline now.

Baba Jukwa: Thanks
