ZANU (PF) Vultures Gather, But For What Prey?

E-mail Print PDF

Screenshot 2016-02-10-12-36-25One  faction of Robert Mugabe's bitterly divided Zanu PF hired 61 buses to bring this mass to a politburo meeting hoping to resolve the divisions caused by Mugabe's refusal to name an heir, or rather his desire to anoint his wife against the will of some in ZANU (PF).

The last group which resisted him was thrown out of the party and declared enemies of the party. Now, although vice-president Emmerson Mnangagwa has not declared his desire to succeed Mugabe, much has been done in his name for that cause.

Rape of Marange Continues as Greedy ZANU (PF) Hoodwinks Parliament

E-mail Print PDF

120315115704-marketplace-africa-zimbabwe-diamond-anjin-machacha-00012727-story-topMUTARE, Zimbabwe (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Shylet Mutsago, a 63-year-old who lives near the diamond fields of Marange, cannot hide her anger over how mining in this gem-rich part of eastern Zimbabwe has failed to improve the lives of local people.

From a distance she watches as companies turn the ground over in search of the alluvial diamonds, releasing clouds of red dust into the sky. 

"Our hopes of benefiting from the diamonds are gone,” she said. “And with this severe drought we are now placing our lives in the hands of God. We are living close to these diamond mines, yet we are starving.”

Only the Chinese and their Zimbabwean fatcat friends from Anjin Investments, Diamond Mining Corporation, Jinan Mining, Marange Resources and Mbada Diamonds seem to be benefitting while the government double-speaks to Parliament.

Tsvangirai to ZANU (PF): Let's Talk, Together With Others

E-mail Print PDF

Screenshot 2016-02-05-13-00-59Opposition leader, MDC President Morgan Tsvangirai, has called on all Zimbabweans, regardless of political affiliation to begin a dialogue on the national crisis, including Zanu PF which is percieved by most as the architect of the crisis.

But if Zanu PF does not want to dialogue, the rest of Zimbabwean society should carry on without Zanu PF, and ffurthermore, the international community should disengage from dialogue with the ruling party and its government until such time as it implements agreed electoral conditions and embraces universally acceptable standards for rule of law.

Walls Closing In: US Senator Calls for Real Zimbabwe Sanctions

E-mail Print PDF

bob corkerWalls are closing in on  Zanu (PF)'s misguided policies as the chairman of United States Senate Committee on Foreign Relations (SCFR), Bob Corker, has started moving to block new lending to Zimbabwe by the IMF, the World Bank and the African Development Bank.

The senator has told the Obama administration that Zimbabwe must first show progress on rule of law and human rights, a position which is actually the current legal position since the Zimbabwe Democracy and Economic Recovery Act was passed in 2001, but which successive administrations, including Obama's, have been ignoring.

Current US law requires the President to make a number of certifications including the restoration of the rule of law in Zimbabwe; satisfactory election conditions; equitable, legal, and transparent land reform; and the subordination of the security forces to civilian authority as the necessary conditions for a U.S. vote in support of Zimbabwe’s arrears clearance at an international financial institution.

MDC-T on Dr Mujuru, Herald and Way Forward

E-mail Print PDF

The Herald and other state media have been on a systematic programme of distorting MDCT President Morgan Tsvangirai's statements, including their reporting today on his visit to Bulawayo. The Herald also deliberately reported about former MDC members who left the party to join Tendai Biti's attempted coup in 2014 who have now jumped ship again to Dr Mujuru's PF as if they had just recently jumped from the MDC-T to PF. 

MDC-T Secretary General, Douglas Mwonzora, took time to set the record straight in this article in which he also set out the main opposition's priorities as Zimbabwe prepares for another election, even though President Robert Mugabe's ZANU (PF) seems determined not to carry out the reforms that Zimbabwe has already commuted to in its own constitution and under SADC and UN charters.
