We Have Every Right To Demonstrate, Mr President PDF Print E-mail

The only issue The Herald Online found worth reporting in President Robert Mugabe's independence speech was the "warning" to MDC-T against illegal and violent protests.

While some may see it as an attempt to intimidate the party, others would say it was honest reporting, because fear of MDC-T mass protests was the only news in Mugabe's speech; the rest was same old and meaningless promises.

This should therefore encourage the MDC-T to go ahead with the protests and not fear persecution, nor failure, particularly as they are planning peaceful protests, which President Mugabe acknowledged are allowed by law.

Opaque Obama Sanctions Policy: Mudede On, Rautenbach Off PDF Print E-mail

The US Office of Foreign Assests Control, a division of the US Treasury which deals with sanctions has announced the addition of some of Robert Mugabe's co-conspirators onto the sanctions list, while inexplicably removing others.

While the purpose of the targeted sanctions is supposed to be to "support democratic aspirations of the people of Zimbabwe and Zimbabwean anti-corruption efforts, Billy Rautenbach, who corruptly recruited companies to fund Zanu (PF) violent election campaign, has, however, been removed from the list.

Rautenbach has also recently been reported as having acquired the vast business empire he has in Zimbabwe by greasing politicians hands with brown envelopes stuffed with bribes thousands of dollars.

A Virgin Islands registered company which was reportedly used to pay Robert Mugabe for the services he rendered to Laurent Kabila, using Zimbabwean soldiers who believed they were on national duty, has also been removed from the list. It is also linked to Rautenbach.

Paul Mangwana, the late John Nkomo, Sithembiso Nyoni, Isaiah Masvayamwanda Shumba, the late Victoria Chitepo, Marian Chombo, the late Kumbirai Kangai, Sharlottie Msipa, and Peter Baka Nyoni have also been removed from the sanctions list.

The announcement does not shed an light to what President Barack Obama is trying to achieve with the policy and it does not show any transparency in the way the policy is operated.

Zanu (PF) stole the last election seven month ago and it is trying to use in stolen Parliamentary majority to create laws which go against all tenets of democracy and will perpetuate them in power against the will of the people.

Poverty has become endemic and it will be a matter of time before there is a real humanitarian crisis in Zimbabwe, given the collapsing service delivery, the lack of revenue and the continuing corruption. What the Treasurer said about the changes

"ZANU PF Has Betrayed the Liberation Struggle" PDF Print E-mail

HlatwayoAs Zimbabwe marks Independence Day on 18th of April, ordinary Zimbabweans have nothing to celebrate because ZANU PF cronies have hijacked and privatised national independence.

The MDC Youth Assembly says NO to the privatisation of the people's freedom. Today ZANU PF has neglected the core values and purpose of wagging a liberation struggle. The few top echelons of ZANU PF have monopolized the country and its resources.

The ordinary black people went to war to gain independence and freedom. This has been misinterpreted hence neglected.

The one man one vote agenda has been shelved and replaced by serious vote rigging. A myriad of unthinkable means has been used by ZANU PF to circumvent the will of the people and the so called sovereignty of this great land. Clifford Hlatywayo

These range from hiring foreign based organizations to rig the vote, for instance, the controversial NIKUV that was hired by ZANU PF to decide on internal issues of the country. This has not only aided in replacing the one man one vote that the people fought for but also seriously undermining the country's sovereignty.

ZANU PF employed violence and intimidation of highest magnitude against the people. It has gravely abused state institutions to attain their narrow interests. They have redefined national development to the retention of state power by any means rather than positive emancipation of the ordinary people.

Independence has been privatized to mean looting of national cake by the few in ZANU PF.

The issue of land was at the centre of the liberation struggle. What we have seen is only the top brass and some war veterans who were able to violently grab plots of land from white farmers benefited; the rest haven't.

Those who fought the liberation genuinely will tell you today that the liberation was fought to make Zimbabwe a nation of equal opportunities in all spheres of life. People were fighting for economic justice, where every citizen can equally participate and benefit from the economic activities of the nation.

Fundamental freedoms have been fatally infringed by the state. 34 years after independence from the colonial rulers, its citizens are not independent and they live in extreme fear. July 31, 2013 saw the vote rigging of the century. Since then, the economy has been declining every minute.

The stock exchange market capitalization of July 2013 was around $6, 8 billion, eight months down the line it is on $4.8 billion, a fall of $2 billion. One wonders where we are heading as a nation when industries are continuing to close and subsequently people losing their livelihood every day.

The promise for 2, 2 million jobs remains a pipedream for the youth.

The MDC is an answer to all maladmistration. People’s upliftment is at the center of MDC-T policies, where by growing the cake is the first priority rather than fighting for a very small one.

Promotion of sound and sustainable investment to create the much needed jobs is paramount.
For and on behalf of the young people of Zimbabwe.

MDC-T Can Remove Zanu (PF) Sooner Than Later PDF Print E-mail
Written by Makusha Mugabe   
Thursday, 17 April 2014 13:00

sipepasamAlthough we are not actually privy to what MDC-T national executive member, Samuel Sipepa Nkomo said, judging by what was reported on the Zimbabwe Mail yesterday, the former Minister was off-message when he said that the MDC-T is not capable of dethroning the ruling Zanu -PF and its leader President Robert Mugabe.

The party leader, Morgan Tsvangirai, has already made a rallying call for Zimbabwean to democratically and lawfully seek to remove Zanu (PF) which is leading the country down another precipice after being rescued by the MDC-T when it was in government in in 2008-2013. MDC youths have already announced that they are taking up the challenge
