FROM MUBITA C. NAWA
Dear friends and colleagues,
I am currently away concluding some work assignments. I shall return soon. Recently I gave a lecture on Enterprise Risk Management. In it I talked about the risks that come with pursuing your own dream. One of the businesses I started in 2013 has exposed me to some of such risks. We designed a business that would help people achieve their dreams of car ownership. We succeeded in empowering many who still enjoy that benefit. Unfortunately along the way we were defrauded of thousands of dollars that were both ours and our clients. A matter which we communicated to nearly two dozen clients who were affected.
My absence over the past few weeks has not helped much. I am fully responsible for the information gap created by my absence.
We have soldiered on to right the missteps of our journey. It has been a difficult time for me and an introduction to unchartered personal and corporate experiences.
Many companies have gone under in the world and in my country. From airlines to energy companies to simple store front shops. Any company that goes under dashes many hopes. Ours is no exception and we deeply regret this. It is our prayer that the homes and individuals we have affected continue to see the positive conclusion we also see.
Speculations and rumours are part of any private citizen's life or public figures domain. We treat these as other individual's rights to self-expression.
I look forward to returning and to addressing questions that any significant matter raises.
I ask for your prayers and for your consideration of my entitlement to privacy and to the communication of my side of the events.
May God bless you all and remember what makes us truly great is not how we climbed the last mountain but how we scale the trials of the valley ahead of us.
