Biti: New Strategies to Remain Relevant?

E-mail Print PDF

Biti12th3Isn’t it amazing how reasonable politicians become when they have lost political battles and they are looking for ways to endear themselves to the people. We would not believe that these were the words of Tendai Biti yesterday if the story was not published in the reliable Zimbabwe Independent under the deceptive headline New Strategies To Remove Mugabe:

"Mugabe stole the 2013 elections using all kinds of sophisticated shenanigans, including rigging, and unless and until we attended to genuine electoral reforms then any participation in elections is simply legitimising a flawed process.

"It eludes one’s wisdom that more than 36 months after the July 2013 elections we still do not have copies of the electronic voters roll.


Monitors On The Job In Zanu (PF)-Only Election

ZESNYouthsThe Zimbabwe Electoral Support Network (ZESN) has deployed 45 static and mobile observers in the Zanu (PF) elections which are being held in violation of the Constitution and have been boycotted by the main opposition party for that reason.

ZESN did not comment on the illegality of the election, but reported that voting was going on peacefully in the Mt Darwin West and Chirumhanzu-Zibagwe by-elections, with most polling stations opening on time and having adequate personnel and voting materials.

They also observed with concern police officers were inside virtually every polling station violation of Section 19 of the Electoral Act as read with Schedule 2 of the Electoral Regulations 2005 as amended by Statutory Instrument 32 of 2008 which states that they must be outside the polling station and only allows members of the Electoral Commission, electoral officers on duty, political party election agents and accredited observers within the polling station.


Zimbabwe, Like Kariba Disaster Waiting To Happen

Zimbabweans have been sleepwalked into a crisis which neither the Minister of Finance, Patrick Chinamasa, nor his boss no can solve, especially not by running around telling everyone who is willing to listen that the public service is blotted.

Apparently he does not have the powers to reduce the civil service and the man who does have the powers, the man who is responsible for the over-staffing in the fist place, Civil Service Commission chairman Dr Mariyawanda Nzuwa, is apparently still mandated by his principal Robert Mugabe to continue ignoring Chinamasa.

"Prof" Moyo Plots Clamp-Down on Civics and on Convergence Conference

E-mail Print PDF


The Robert Mugabe regime has already set in motion propaganda to justify cracking down on non-governmental organisations and political parties. This is despite Zimbabwean civic NGOs abandoning their support for political reforms intended to level the political playing field, in the hope of endearing themselves to the regime.

The MDC-T's support for the national dialogue proposed by retired Anglican Bishop Bakare's National Convergence Platform has also somehow been linked by Jonathan Moyo to a Zanu (PF) propaganda project by Maxwell Shumba and fired Zanu PF MPs from the Mujujru faction of Zanu (PF).

Mnangagwa Shows True Colours, Political Violence Breaks Out

E-mail Print PDF

Updated Sunday Zanu (PF) vice president Emmerson Mnangagwa has fired warning shots intended to cow the opposition and civic society against protesting the deteriorating economic situation in Zimbabwe.

The VP who is on record warning that he is a killer, cannot be ignored, particularly as one opposition activist is already missing and feared abducted by security forces under his control.

In fact as we write another of Itai Dzanmara colleagues in the Occupy African Unity Square movement has been abducted. And Gerrald Fokisa, ward I chairperson St Mary's is hospitalised after reported violence. Reports are coming in that fierce violence has erupted in St Mary's in Chitungwiza this morning again, with Zanu PF youths accompanied by CIO agents beating MDC supporters at Chikwanha shopping Centre. UK Zimbabweans have started collecting money to support victims of violence. Details below.

On The Small Matter of Tendai Biti

E-mail Print PDF

Tendai Biti cannot not be allowed to get away with his messianic persecution delusions as published in The Herald yesterday.

Following his expulsion from Parliament together with 20 other members of his “faction,“ Biti said that he was now disillusioned with opposition failure to coalesce to defeat Zanu-PF, as if he was not at the centre of dividing the opposition.

Tellingly he said that he had been in the trenches for a long time and had thus played his part, as if his role was illustrious in the politics of change in Zimbabwe.
