"Them Belly Full But We Hungry" MDC Youths Take To Streets

MDC Youth Assembly spokesman, Clifford Hlatshwayo, leading MDC youths in a rally and demonstration in Harare City Centre to launch the assembly's campaign for jobs…. 

The youths were also commemorating the stolen election of July 31 last year and welcoming party President, Morgan Tsvangirai, back to Zimbabwe after a successful international trip to the UK.

Tsvangirai also came home to the good news that the courts in Mutare had acquitted his officials in Mutare who had been a charged with stealing equipment from the MDC offices in Mutare which the Renewal Team were claiming was theirs, despite having formed their own party. The case sets the stage for the MDC claiming all its properties from Renewal.

This was also the day when Zanu (PF) bosses were celebrating their "victory" in the stolen election with a sumptuous feast and a concert fronted by local musicians Sulumani Chimbetu and Jah Prayzah, according to web reports.

Tsvangirai has vowed never to recognise the victory and is preparing to launch a report which, despite lacking the election information which the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission and the Registrar General have refused to make available, will show emphatically that the election was rigged.

Zimbabwe: Workers, Artists Under Siege As Regime Panics

As the economic crisis in Zimbabwe worsens, with the National Railways of Zimbabwe failing to pay its artisans, so is repression worsening, with police banning the artisans’ planned demonstrations and arresting musicians who support the opposition Movement for Democratic Change led by Morgan Tsvangirai.

Disgruntled railway workers whose salaries have not been paid, even though their overpaid bosses are still receiving their five-figure salaries, were barred from protesting after they notified the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) that they intended to stage a protest on Saturday August the 2nd. 

The peaceful protests were to be held in Harare, Gweru and Mutare for two hours under the auspices of their union, the Zimbabwe Railways Artisans Union (ZARU), protesting against non-payment of their salaries "and other challenges they are grappling with as railway employees" according to their notification.

Tsvangirai Address To UK Structures

The MDC will approach the Constitutional Court to force the government to comply with provisions for free and fair elections which are already in the Constitution to ensure that the next election will be transparent.

This is just some of the pressure that the party intends to put on Zanu (PF) while at the same time engaging the whole spectrum of Zimbabwean society, including Zanu (PF), in a national dialogue on the on-going economic crisis.

But, said MDC President Morgan Tsvangirai on Saturday, his priority was now on strengthening the party following the departure of secretary general Tendai Biti and some other members, which he insisted should not be called a split.

China, West New Scramble for Africa

Decades after the European powers carved up the African continent for their own imperial needs, Africa is undergoing a new wave of resource and strategic exploitation – some are calling it the new scramble for Africa.

The United States is increasing its footprint across Africa with AFRICOM, fighting terrorism and ensuring stability are the trumpeted motivations. Resource security is a more hushed objective. But it is not just about the US.
