Kudzanai Chiurai: The artist who stood up to Mugabe

Aged just 31, Zimbabwean-born Chiurai is one of the fastest-rising talents in the contemporary African art scene.

His arresting body of work is increasingly defined by the use of mixed media, as Chiurai combines paintings and drawings with videos and photographs to address issues such as democracy and xenophobia.

But for some, Chiurai is much more than an artist. He has been described as a poet, an activist and a cultural philosopher who uses his striking -- and at times dark -- creations to tackle the political and social issues that are close to his heart.

"You can't escape politics," explains Chiurai, who lives and works in South Africa. "Everything's political in the sense like how we're socialized."

A trained painter, Chiurai was the first black student to graduate with a Bachelor's degree in fine art from South Africa's University of Pretoria.He started his career painting landscapes and portraits but his activism soon started appearing in his work. He stirred up controversy during the build-up to Zimbabwe's violent and disputed 2008 elections with a series of controversial depictions of president Robert Mugabe.

Chiurai's posters, which showed Mugabe in flames with horns on his head, raised the ire of Zimbabwe's ruling elite and got Chiurai into trouble. The young artist says he was threatened with arrest and has been living in self-imposed exile ever since.

Although he knew the implications of criticizing one of Africa's most feared strongmen, Chiurai remained unfazed. He describes the hardships that many of his countrymen were suffering amid a deepening economic crisis in the once-prosperous southern African country.

"Art has always played an important role in telling these stories," he explains. "Whether it's through painting or posters; whether it mirrors a thought or it mirrors an idea; whether it mirrors a conversation that should be had. I thought that, in that instance, it was possible to do that in one image."

The series of posters galvanized Zimbabweans living in South Africa to speak out against what was happening in their country.

Inspired by British street artist Banksy, Chiurai also used stencils and spray paint to create outdoor murals depicting the fear of elections in Zimbabwe and xenophobic attacks in South Africa.Chiurai's work about the political situation in Zimbabwe turned him into a poster boy for the country's new struggle, while some compared him to Chinese artist Ai Weiwei for daring to stand up his country's leadership.

"With every generation you always want to be the generation that contributed something," he says. "I always say if there's a vacancy in history, you should apply for it ... So for me it was that -- the poster boy thing sort of came as a result of that but then for me it was like I wanted to do something, I thought that was important."

But the recent defacing of a controversial painting of South African president Jacob Zuma and violent demonstrations in Tunisia over what some have branded religiously offensive art have many questioning whether artistic expression is being suppressed in parts of the continent.

Chiurai sees it as the re-emergence of artistic activism. He says that this is something the world needs more of.

"It is very important for the average person to have a voice out there," he says. "So it's more important now than ever."

Chiurai's latest installation, "Conflict Resolution," is currently being shown in one of the world's most esteemed art displays: the Documenta 13 in Kassel, Germany.

For "Conflict Resolution," he combined a series of narrative mediums to make art accessible to a new generation of Africans -- a group he says no one tries to talk to.

"We're almost kind of left to our own devices and we're raised by YouTube, or we're raised by DStv" he says. "They are like our pseudo family, these sort of multimedia spaces, like bloggers have become brothers and sisters to random people."

Through his art, Chiurai says, he wants to spark a conversation with the youth of the continent.

"Being able to find a way to communicate with people -- and beyond just writing within a blog space or within live TV -- if it's in some way engaging to them, I think you have sort of started a conversation with them because it's within a language they understand. So it makes the communication easier."

Being born a year after Zimbabwe's independence, Chiurai is part of what is known as the "Born-Free generation" on the African continent. He says that some young Africans are beginning to realize the influence and power they hold.

"They underestimate their capabilities and abilities to be able participants in change and the direction of politics," he says. "Some are starting to see that and acknowledge that. We are in a position where we can change or contribute something. We are in a position where, as a 'Born-Free generation,' we won't be forgotten."

Introduction Letter for a New Business

Ok! A very less known fact about me is that I am an entrepreneur. At my age, it often gets a bit difficult to get people to trust my business. However, with a little help from my parents and friends, I managed to put things together. So, the first step after all the foundation work, was introducing the business to people. This in itself is very important. If you don't introduce your business to your direct clientele (whoever they are), then chances of you getting business will be significantly delayed.

An introduction letter for a new business is a way to reach out to your target audience, to let them know about you. So, how do you go about writing these introduction letters for business? Before I start with the explanation about these letters, we can take a look at a sample.

Writing Introduction Letters for a Business

Like any basic business letter, a standard method of letter-writing rules needs to be followed too. A business introduction letter has to be accompanied by a company brochure. In such a case, the sample above can qualify as an example. However, if you do not wish to give a brochure along with the letter, you will need to include more details in the letter. The details that need to be furnished will be along the following lines.

Full names of entities involved in the business.

Basic business details.

Prior experience or expertise of entities involved.

Services or products provided in detail.

Price modules (if fixed).

All these details need to be given to the recipient, either with the help of a brochure, or through the introduction letters for the business directly. You can also go through a few professional letter format examples for help.

If you want to introduce a new product, then you would have to word it in a different manner. For such a letter, always mention the product in the first line, making it superior to the rest of the content. You can explain the quality, the suitability and above all, the price comparison. You can elaborate with examples, to put your point forward. Conclude your letter by providing your contact information and ordering details.

When writing an introduction letter for your new business, one needs to make sure that the post of the sender is mentioned in the signature. It is imperative that the letter be sent on the company letter head. This not only gives authenticity to the letter, but provides the recipient with all the contact information of the organization in one go. Another thing to ensure when writing an introduction letter for your new business, is to give as much information as possible, without making the content too complex. Use simple and short sentences. Do not make the paragraphs too long. Even if you include 5 or 6 paragraphs in the letter, as long as a new concept is introduced in a new paragraph, stick to smaller paragraphs.

Senior Manager - Events

Chrome Enterprises

4830 Kimbark Ave.

Chicago, IL 60635.

Dear Mr. Tribbiani,

The purpose of this letter is to briefly introduce my organization, Footprints Adventure Camps. We are a camping and training organization and take on several outsourcing projects.

The organization is run by 5 partners; Monica Joseph, Mike Arwen, Ted Scott, Josh Buffet, and Robin Stinson. All the partners have individual experience in the field of event management, corporate training, and camping. Monica is a certified corporate trainer and a life coach. Mike is a certified camping expert with 5 years of experience. Josh and Ted have been in event management for the past 7 years and were earlier working with Events Inc.

We have attached a detailed brochure of the organization, for you to view. We were also looking forward to meet you, with the purpose of discussing the possibilities of having specific tie-ups, with your esteemed organization. We will be in touch again to set up a meeting, at whatever time that is convenient for you.

We anticipate the possibility to working with you in the future.

Business Introduction Email

Communication has sped up to quite an extent due to the onset and use of emails. Introduction letters sent by email will be the same as the company introduction letter sample shown above, that one may send through airmail.

However, these days, a very good way to spread word about an organization, is through a well put-together website. When getting in touch with clients via email, one can afford to keep the letter short and provide the client with the URL link to the company website. This will not only be a faster and more informative method, but an impressive one as well.

Starting a new business is not easy, we know that. However, unless and until you don't let the local market and then the market beyond that know about your entity, getting business will be difficult. Spread the word and let the world know that you exist.

Ghana and Zimbabwe Students Scoop Top Honours at 5th Edition of DStv Eutelsat Star Awards Organised by MultiChoice Africa and Eutelsat


Eutelsat Communications (Paris:ETL):

The winners of this year's DStv Eutelsat Star Awards were

announced tonight during a ceremony held in Nairobi, Kenya, that also

celebrated rising student interest in science and technology.

The fifth edition of the DStv Eutelsat Star Awards, organised by

MultiChoice and Eutelsat, reached a record participation with nearly

2,000 entries from 18 countries. The winner in the essay category, Ayawen

Asuinura from Ghana has won a trip to Paris and onwards to a

launch site to witness a rocket blast into space to place a satellite

into orbit. This is the first win in the essay category for Ghana that

has already produced two winners in the poster category. The runner-up

in the essay category was Sara Eribo from Equatorial Guinea who

wins a trip for two to visit MultiChoice facilities and the South

African National Space Agency near Johannesburg. In the essay category,

students were asked to interpret the quote by Socrates "Man must rise

above the Earth, to the top of the atmosphere and beyond, for only thus

will he fully understand the world in which he lives" and to

show how satellites help understand and take care of our planet.

In the poster category, Mallon Marume from Zimbabwe scooped the

first prize for artistic creativity and will visit Eutelsat in Paris to

understand how satellites are operated and piloted in space and the many

ways they benefit users. This is a consecutive win for Zimbabwe as

Joseph Mahiya won top honours in the essay category last year. Benjamin

Ibanda from Uganda was the runner up in the same category.

The four winning schools attended by the overall award winners and

runners-up were also rewarded with a DStv installation, including dish,

TV set, PVR decoder and free access to the DStv Education Bouquet.

Paolo Nespoli, an ESA (European Space Agency) astronaut chaired the jury

of the Awards for the third year in a row, assisted by an international

panel of skilled industry experts: Ronke Bello, CEO at Innovative

Technology Literacy Services Ltd, Nigeria; Dr Jane Munga, Policy

Advisor, Kenyan Ministry of Information, Communication, Technology and

Research, Kenya; Dr Perkins Muredzi, Dean of School of Industrial

Sciences and Technology, Harare Institute of Technology (HIT), Zimbabwe;

Melt Loubser, GM: Broadcast Technology, MultiChoice Africa and Rodney

Benn, Regional Director, Eutelsat.

Commenting on the entries, Paolo Nespoli said: "As the Jury Chairman

of the DStv Eutelsat Star Awards over the last three years, I

confirm that this year's entries reaffirm the high standard of this

unique competition. The quality and creativity of the finalists' essays

and artwork underscore the deep interest of Africa's young generation in

science and technology. I am truly honoured to be part of a competition

that reveals some of Africa's future thought leaders."

The keynote speaker was Kenya's Cabinet Secretary in the Ministry of

ICT, Hon. Joe Mucheru who said: "It is important to note that His

Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta and his government is determined to

promote holistic development of the country covering all sectors with

particular focus on leveraging science and technology in the delivery of

services in all sectors of the economy including ICT and education.

Therefore, it is gratifying to note the effort by both MultiChoice

Africa and Eutelsat in ensuring that we nurture interest and build

capacities in science and technology."

About the DStv Eutelsat Star Awards

In 2010 MultiChoice Africa and Eutelsat combined their expertise to

initiate an annual pan-African student competition called the DStv

Eutelsat Star Awards. The DStv Eutelsat Star Awards encourages 14-19

year-old students to write an essay or design a poster on a

satellite-related topic. Country winners from across Africa then compete

in the overall awards for a trip to the Eutelsat facilities in Paris,

with the essay winner travelling onwards to witness a live rocket

launch. Runners-up win a trip to South Africa as guests of MultiChoice

Africa and the South African National Space Agency at Hartebeesthoek.

Schools attended by the overall winners also receive a DStv

installation, including dish, television, state-of-the-art PVR decoder

and free access to the DStv Education Bouquet. Winners at national

levels win prizes such as computers or tablets.
