A lot of amazing things are happening right now in Africa, the internet age attracts more Africans across the continent into the New Age, More Branches has always prided itself on breaking the news on new ideas, individuals, companies, and millennials pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved in our third world continent and today we add to the list – Sangulani Chikumbutso, an amazing Zimbabwean inventor and founder of Saith Technology who’s been inventing incredible things for about ten years with no media spotlight capturing his greatness.
A Form 2 dropout, Chikumbutso has never attended technology school or university since then, he was born and bred in the high-density suburb of Kuwadzana, Chikumbutso’s journey started in 1997 when he started experimenting with various technologies while in Kuwadzana. At one point he was profiled on ZBCTV as a prominent young man in the innovation industry. He developed the first Green Power Prototype generator which produces 100% clean consumable energy using Radio Frequencies.
In 1999, he built his first successful project which was a Radio broadcast transmitter for which he made the headlines on ZBC news. He started broadcasting, though illegally. The project fell away due to lack of funding.
In 2001, under the mentorship of Rose Mazula, then Broadcasting Association of Zimbabwe Chairperson, he developed what he named the Digital Navigation Facilitator which is used to facilitate landing of aircraft from variables that include the size of the aircraft, its position in altitude, speed and so on. By 2009, the first prototype of the Greener generator began to work generating 1,200 Watts, but still, no one was interested in funding the project. Maxwell was invited by the Government of Lesotho to do a presentation of his project. He was offered a $1.2 million dollar deal but turned it down after he met with Zach Wazara, former Econet CEO and founder of Broadcom.
