Zanu (PF) Wielding Axe Above VP Mujuru’s Head

E-mail Print PDF

mujurujoiceThe Zanu (PF) controlled Herald has now admitted that there is serious internal strife in Zanu-PF, with accusations that "some senior party members" are pushing a regime change agenda from within.

Such terms have traditionally been reserved for the opposition MDC, but this is the first time anyone in Zanu (PF) has been accused of harbouring regime change, in a statement issued by the Party spokesman.

The Herald article puts this also in the context of a Politburo meeting that is expected to "review" the Women and Youth League conferences and probe reports of vote buying and manipulation - by all accounts a move to dilute the strong support won by Vice-President Joice Mujuru in those elections.

VP Mujuru now firmly in Mugabe's sights

Zimbabwe State Journalists Protect, Not Expose, Corrupt Politicians

E-mail Print PDF

ChimakureZimbabwean state media editors, their hands already with full trying to spin that Zimbabwe is now coming out of its doldrums following some aid and 'deals' with China, found themselves in the line of fire from social media activists when they came out to defend their allegedly corrupt boss, instead of exposing him.

Zimbabweans are not buying the spin that agreements signed in energy, roads, railways, telecommunications, agriculture and tourism will translate into economic recovery soon, not least because of the corruption inherent in Zanu (PF). Chronicle Editor Mduduzi and Zimmail (Mpofu) Editor Chimakure putting journalim to shame? Social media activist Gift Mawire trying to bring back the pride.

By the admission of one of Zanu (PF)‘s own editors, if indeed China does fund the envisaged projects under ZimAsset, then next year would be year 0 of ZimAsset implementation - the first year and-a-half of Zanu (PF)'s term having been squandered in succession politics and the search for the resources.

Zambia Unveils Solar Mobile Charger For COMESA

SolarpanelZambiaSome industrial ideas are so obvious it makes you wonder why someone has taken so long to develop it – like Zambia Solar Chargers  (ZSC)'s solar chargers for mobile phones which were launched at Lusaka’s Taj Pamodzi Hotel recently. A Zambian model, no doubt paid in kind, shows off one to the panels on behalf of ZSC.

Zimbabwe China Deals Not Bad Per Se, But...

E-mail Print PDF

zhangazhaThe full details of  ‘mega deals’ that President Mugabe is said to have been signingduring his state visit to China are yet to emerge.  From the snippets that we have read in the state controlled media, these deals range from infrastructural investments pacts through to a greater number of memorandums of understanding.

The latter will require feasibility studies while the former are largely related to Chinese corporations investing in our railways, roads and in the extraction of gas from Gwayi-Shangani in Matebeleland North.

The reception to these deals has been dual in tone. The state media has generally lauded these deals not only by describing them as major, but also referring to them as historic. The private media has urged caution and also sought to emphasise the point of how the country may now be beholden to the Chinese by mortgaging the meagre mineral resources that we have.
