How Mugabe's Refusal To Pass Baton Doomed ZANU (PF) - Irreversibly


Everyone in Zanu (PF), not least the above players, now fancies their chances because Robert Mugabe has torn the rule-book on Zanu (PF) succession

Mr Editor for many years we have argued on this forum that President Robert Mugabe wants to be president for life - that this is the only thing that mattered to him when he pursued leadership of Zanu and that it is still the only thing that matters to him today.

In the early years of Zimbabwe’s independence he tried to steer Zimbabwe towards a one party, and more than 20 000 people paid the price for thwarting ambitions that he has had held from the day he stepped into office.

Beating Corruption in Africa Requires A New Mindset

This speech by Prof PLO Lumumba at the 3rd Anti Corruption Convention in December 2013, should have inspired anti-corruption activism all over  Africa. But as he says corruption is much stronger than any efforts that are being made to combat it.
Zimbabwe seems to have done better than most to bury its anti-corruption activities so deep underground that corruption is ruling supreme, and any talk about anti-corruption remains just that - only talk.
President Mugabe talks so much about anti-corruption action, but never does anything about it, suggesting he is at the top of the corrupt pyramid, and is busy covering up for the rest of the corrupt lot.

Meaningless State Of Zimbabwe Address

mugaPresident Robert Mugabe’s speechwriters must really think Zimbabweans are fools who do not know the difference between a State of the Nation address and phantasmagorical plans of a moribund government.

The pronouncement of plans (available here in audio), instead of telling Zimbabweans about the State of the Nation – which can only be described as perilous – was an attempt to disguise the utter failure of the Zanu (PF) government to get a grip on the government.

No economic plans, nor service delivery, accountability of government officials and implementation of national plans have been achieved and the country is seemingly drifting rudderless to certain failed statehood.

Instead of President Mugabe talking about these failures, which would at least have given people confidence that he and his bureaucrats are seeing the perilous state that Zimbabwe is in, he decided to circumvent it altogether.

The opposition in Parliament did remind him by booing and heckling, especially when he ended the much-anticipated speech without saying anything, but this should be taken as unacceptable by Parliament.

Warning To Ian Khama: Deepening Zimbabwe Crisis Will Pull Down SADC Region

khamaeditI know everyone is fed up with the continuous state of crisis in Zimbabwe but that is no reason for not paying attention to its implications. In 1976 it was an intervention by the American Secretary of State that attempted to address the political, economic and social crisis in Zimbabwe, compounded at that time by a “low level guerilla war”.

In 1980 it was the British, led by the Foreign Secretary, who attempted to address our situation in the form of a regional conference held in London. Then in 1996/7 the UN attempted to tackle the land issue and in 2000 the Mbeki administration considered what to do and came down on the side of supporting the established regime against the democratic forces in the country.
