Funyi has also conceived and developed a methodology for manufacturing bullets and rifles with locally available materials. His talent, and that of other African inventors in this field, could be used to manufacture, through an industrialized process, more advanced weapons so as to provide currently ill-equipped African armies with genuine and efficient weapons made in Africa.

Funyi believes that if he can think, then he should build. This is why he works on almost anything intuitive. He believes in creating job opportunities and wants to set up a weapon development company as he has started generating his own patents!
