Written by on October 24, 2017

“Maths is to the mind what love is to the heart”, Edzai Zvobwo, Chief Genius at MathsGenius Leadership Institute (MGLI) strongly stated in his seminal book entitled The Mathematical Genius in You. The self-anointed maths genius has graced many a stage in South Africa and beyond in his bid to change people’s attitude towards mathematics and has used all sorts of platforms to preach the gospel of mathematics.

The 1873FM, an online radio station run by the leadership development network, The 1873 Network, announced on its social media pages that Edzai Conilias Zvobwo a.k.a MathsGenius will be joining the lineup of hosts as he tackles issues pertaining to problem solving and critical thinking for success. According to the reports, the MathsGenius will have the first show on the 24th of October 2017 at 9 PM South African time. The show will be run every day at the same time.

The show is a culmination of his efforts and passion for mathematics; this is evidenced by his motivational works across schools in South Africa. He has participated in intervention programs in the townships through workshops and camps assisting struggling learners. Edzai called himself The Mathematical Evangelist on a Mindset TV programme.

A lot of MBA students from leading institutions of higher learning have benefited from his tutoring of research methods and statistics. His dream is to demystify mathematics and ensure that learners become good problem solvers. Edzai is a firm believer of the theory that Africa can be liberated if her people are mathematically literate and apply the problem solving thinking methodology to find solutions to social, political and economic problems that have long hounded the “Mother-Continent”. Good problem solvers will eradicate poverty in Africa. To become a good problem solver, one needs to be trained to think like a mathematician to achieve this.

Edzai is a high achieving speaker, business analyst/IT project manager and Game Mathematician with experience in:

  • Software development operations in a mobile banking and payments environment (eWallets, switches, EMV, online and real-time payment processing, settlement and reconciliation).
  • Calculating, verifying mathematical and statistical models and software for the gaming industry.
  • Teaching mathematics, mathematical literacy and statistics at tertiary and high school level.
  • Giving maths motivational talks and training programs for youth to reach their potential.
  • Training educators and parents to recognise and unleash the genius in their learners and children.
  • Presenting and teaching mathematics on television.

He possesses a BSc Honours in Applied Mathematics, Diploma in Business Analysis and Certificate in Data Analysis, Certificate in Monitoring and Evaluation. Edzai has a good understanding of the Software Development Life Cycle and the value of keeping projects on time and within budget and meeting client requirements.

His appreciation of methodologies for succeeding in the studying and applying mathematics in real world situations has led him to become a crusader for South Africa’s most feared subject.
