The Space Debate in Zimbabwe
September 18, 2015

Good morning and thank you for the opportunity to speak to such an inspiring group of people determined to build a bright future for Zimbabwe.   When I received this invitation, the name “The Space” struck me as an appropriate title for why we are here – to create space for people to discuss innovative ideas for development.  This is often where the best ideas originate, when we provide space for creative and committed people, like you, to come together and discuss the key topics of the day.
