Esther Mhuri second Appeal:  Ngonidzashe Mavera says Tatenda Gwata who runs Tswanda internet crowdfunding with 263 Chat Nigel Mugamu set  up the page without him knowing what was going on.

…as mystery surrounds Esther Mhuri’s second fundraising appeal .

Weeks ago various Go Fund Me pages were opened by some dubious Zimbabweans in the disapora without Esther’s knowledge as she wrote to sisi Vee.The pages were to fundraise for her mastectomy ( the removal of her breast).Patience Murapata one of the alleged conartists was named and shamed by sisi Vee after which she stopped the fundraising.

The mastectomy  was a success after Esther received donations from other well wishers as confirmed by Esther to sisi Vee two weeks ago.

After a tip off a day ago it dawned on sisi Vee that a second fundraising appeal had been put in place for Esther.Spearheading the campaign on facebook and on Tswanda crowdfunding page is Ngonidzashe Mareva who explains two options to donate towards Esther’s chemotherapy.Well wishers have the option to donate through Esther’s ecocash account and secondly through a Tswanda fundraising page which was opened by Tatenda Gwata at  Ngonidzashe’s request as in the screenshots sent by Ngonidzashe to sisi Vee.  The Tswanda page also shows the person who is behind the page as Ngonidzashe Mareva.

Talking to Sisi Vee who was querying why the Tswanda fundraising page was opened yet Esther has an ecocash account and a bank account ,Ngonidzashe who was at task to explain the reason refered sisi Vee to Tatenda Gwata.

The screenshots sent to sisi Vee by Ngonidzashe show Tatenda Gwata confirming to Ngonidzashe that the page will be set up of which it was set up at Ngonidzashe’s request.However Ngonidzashe in the communication with sisi Vee claims to know nothing about who intiated the setting up of the page .Tatenda Gwata goes on to say he runs the Tswanda page with 263 chat Nigel Mugamu.From the look of things it seems the Tswanda crowdfunding page works like Go Fund Me where people register their causes and donated  funds transfered into a bank account.

If that is the case it still remains a mystery whose bank account the money raised through Tswanda platform is going to.However for many crowdfunding pages the money goes to the person who intitiates the appeal.That person should be Ngonidzashe in this instance.If it is not Ngoni it should be Tatenda or Nigel.Sisi Vee is still to speak to Tatenda and Nigel.

Talking to sisi Vee today Ngonidzashe said,

[29/04 11:56 pm] Sisi Vee: A very good afternoon to you Mr Ngonidzashe Mavera.

Hoping you are doing great .Thank you so much for the helpful work pertaining to Esther Mhuri’s issue.Just wanted to know what the second fundraising you are spearheading for her is for? Secondly is the other option to donate that is linking to your page tswanda …in any way linked to her ecocash account.Lastly did she by any chance show you how much the first fundraising raised , how much she used and how much she was left with? Your response will be great appreciated.

[29/04 11:57 pm] Ngoni Mavera Esther: Can we talk?

[29/04 11:58 pm] Sisi Vee: Good evening and thank you so much for giving me your whatsapp instead of using facebook inbox.I have resend above the message I sent you on fb

[29/04 11:58 pm] Ngoni Mavera Esther: I was performing the whole day and I am tired and might sleep

[29/04 11:58 pm] Ngoni Mavera Esther: Can I call?

[29/04 11:58 pm] Ngoni Mavera Esther: Yes I got it

[29/04 11:58 pm] Sisi Vee: No problem at you hanzvadzi.You may rest we talk tomorrow

[30/04 1:12 am] Sisi Vee: Thank you so much hanzvadzi for the audio and for sharing your story .Greatly appreciated.

Is the other option to donate that is linking to your Tswanda donations page linked to her ecocash account?

In other words when people donate through the Tswanda page you opened on the internet does the donated money automatically transfer to Esther’s ecocash account If not where is the money going? Is it going to a South Africa bank account after which Esther will be sent the money by the SA Tswanda guys who you are probably not working with.If so is there any reason why the donations are not going to her ecocash account only …why was the Tswanda donations page opened yet Esther can receive money directly through her ecocash account?

[30/04 1:18 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: It was opened for people who don’t have access to give through Ecocash. Listen my sister. I am going to be accountable should anything go wrong. I started the campaign to help. I know the guys running the site. It’s not the first campaign.

Like I said, I have a million things going on and thought something as transparent as that works. People seeing how much they give and all. I can call the guys now and say give her the money, they have her Ecocash number. I wanted to minimize any temptation on either sides

[30/04 1:18 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: For Esther

[30/04 1:19 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: Having Ecocash alone would mean we wouldn’t know how much was given

[30/04 1:19 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: Like I said

[30/04 1:19 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: You are free to call up the guy I mentioned on Facebook

[30/04 1:20 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: If you feel it mustn’t be done that way maybe you have a suggestion

[30/04 1:20 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: Something better

[30/04 1:20 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: I honestly have so much going on

[30/04 1:20 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: Ministry

[30/04 1:20 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: Travel

[30/04 1:20 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: Etc

[30/04 1:20 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: I think it’s very transparent

[30/04 1:21 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: Tomorrow chaiye we can take out whatever is there then Esther opihwa

[30/04 1:21 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: It’s so taxing now for me

[30/04 1:21 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: Not the questions

[30/04 1:21 am] Sisi Vee: Thank you hanzvadzi.I greatly appreciate the help…I just want to know where the Tswanda money is going .Is it going into someone else’s bank account?If so whose bank account?

[30/04 1:22 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: But the fact that people are not willing to take it up from any one of us if things are not clear I ask that they take it up and do it in a way that will please everyone

[30/04 1:22 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: There’s the organization account

[30/04 1:23 am] Sisi Vee: Whose organisation?

[30/04 1:23 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: They asked me to tell them when cash was supposed to be sent

[30/04 1:23 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: My sis

[30/04 1:23 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: Contact a guy named Tatenda Gwata

[30/04 1:23 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: He has those answers

[30/04 1:23 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: I’ve dealt with them befor

[30/04 1:23 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: Donated

[30/04 1:24 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: There wasn’t a problem hence my not questioning them

[30/04 1:24 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: The recipient got the funds

[30/04 1:24 am] Sisi Vee: May I please have his whatsapp number .Is it his organisation

[30/04 1:24 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: I think it’s noble that you ask

[30/04 1:24 am] Sisi Vee: May I please have his whatsapp number .Is it his organisation

[30/04 1:24 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: That’s Nigel

[30/04 1:25 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: Once you clarify

[30/04 1:25 am] Sisi Vee: Thank you so much hanzvadzi .Greatly appreciated

[30/04 1:25 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: I kindly suggest that you come up with a better way

[30/04 1:28 am] Sisi Vee: Thank you so much for the suggestion hanzvadzi.I think the best way was for money to go into her ecocash account.I am not understanding why it is also going to Tswanda yet she has an ecocash account

[30/04 1:29 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: Tswanda can’t keep records of that money if it passes straight

[30/04 1:29 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: We wouldn’t know that there is $172

[30/04 1:29 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: What’s your fear?

[30/04 1:29 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: That I am using money or Tswanda is?

[30/04 1:30 am] Sisi Vee: Yes

[30/04 1:30 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: We can terminate the campaign where it is and give her what’s there and you can assist with all the folks that don’t have means to Ecocas

[30/04 1:31 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: My suggestion

[30/04 1:31 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: I will tell Tatenda

[30/04 1:31 am] Ngoni Mavera Esther: To terminate campaign and give her what’s there

[30/04 1:39 am] Sisi Vee: When I say that do the funds go to a bank account ?

4. Campaign Category: Medical

5. Campaign description – Esther Mhuri of 7 Barring Crescent, Lundi Park, Gweru, is a 37 year old single mother of 4 children. She successfully ran a hair salon until she fell sick. She had to close it down and seek medical attention and she was diagnosed with Breast cancer which was found in her right breast in 2012 and then in the left one in 2016. She was then advised to have a mastectomy done and through a donation by one man, the surgery was a success. After the surgery, her oncologist has since seen the need for her to undergo chemotherapy. Each cycle costs $450 and she needs 7 of those. The round of cycles needs $3,150 and we are appealing to everyone who can joint the #Dollar4life campaign to help. 3,150 people each giving a dollar can help Esther beat cancer.
