There was chaos as students mobbed flamboyant businessman and ZIFA board member Chamu Chiwanza and a stampede ensued as students jostled to have pictures taken with him at Chinhoyi University of Technology on May Day.
Chiwanza had graced the university campus where he delivered a lecture titled ‘Face the Future’ where he among other nuggets, encouraged students and youths in general to desist from accepting mediocrity as a level of success.
“Mediocrity has become a measure of excellency among today’s youths and I warn you to desist from such behavior and change your mindset ,” said Chiwanza who was speaking before a packed auditorium.
He also urged youths to strive to make a difference in other people’s lives and do away with self actualization as stated in the Maslaw hierarchy of needs.
“The Maslaw hierarchy of needs talks about self actualisation but I say you need to think about us.
“You need to make a difference in other people’s lives and become significant in society.
“Instead of using the word success, from now on use the word significant,” he said much to the applause of the audience.
Chiwanza’s lecturer at CUT was under the banner of The Shift – a business enterprise scheme that brings together young business people to discuss and find lasting solution on financial, entrepreneurship, academic and social issues affecting them so that they become financial literate and be master of their destiny.
Previously, the youthful businessman Chiwanza has hosted South African entrepreneur DJ Sbu at one episode of the Shift at a local hotel.
Meanwhile, Chiwanza made a grand entrance with a convoy of the top of the range vehicles.
He was in the company of a high powered delegation including businessman and youth empowerment activist Mike Chimombe.
