Ken Chikonzo

Chief Executive Officer

I am one of the founders of Ubuntu Nerudo. After a career spanning over 25 years in the financial services sector in Zimbabwe, I moved to the United States in 2015 with my wife as I embarked on seminary studies in obedience to God’s call on my life.

I believe in the power of love as a force to unite all of humanity that can propel us into realizing our full potential to live our lives as God intends- to love God and love each other. Love permeates our very being and when we embrace its power, we can launch humanity into a realm of existence that transcends any differences that we may perceive to exist between us. We are able to tear down the centuries old social constructs that divide us as human beings and learn to live together in unity and harmony.

In Ubuntu Nerudo, we recognize that we can achieve more when we work together and we have a duty to our posterity to preserve, promote and celebrate our culture, which emphasizes community rather than the individual. As a pastor and community leader, I recognize that each one of us has a role to play in making the world a better place by loving our neighbor and promoting peace and unity- one person at a time.

I have been married to the co-founder, Rangarirai Rutendo for the past 32 years and am passionate about assisting couples to enrich their marriages, bring up children in an environment of love and acceptance and celebrating each day as a gift.

I believe that as we celebrate our late daughter Laura’s life, we can share information and experiences about our Zimbabwean life and culture so that we inspire others to do the same, to show that there is more that unites us as the people of God than what divides us. I believe that as we embrace the spirit of Ubuntu, to love and care for one another, we can create a better community for each other.
