The Gerizim Technologies Leadership Paradigm

The Biblical King David and Solomon lived over 3000 years and
created one of the wealthiest and most prosperous societies of
all time, rooted in Africa’s material and people wealth. It was
under the leadership and vision of the Davidic King – Prester
John – who hailed from Zimbabwe...who continued an ancient
African Christian legacy and heritage that led to a once
prosperous Southern Africa and global economy.
The Davidic/Solomonic paradigm is valid today. Modern smart
city innovations and inventions cannot solve human suffering.
The increase in technological solutions has not solved the
human tragedy, but increased it with the use of technology that
harms the ignorant masses.
Africa’s success requires developing spiritually smart people.
The problem we have is spiritual people that are not smart or
smart people that are not spiritual. The world needs both!
