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

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

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

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

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.

Zimbabwe Grand Coalition: Beware Wolves In Sheeps' Clothing

bitimujuruJoiZimbabweans should be warned against a new attempt to sabotage the opposition, but which the Zimbabwe Independent unbelievably referred to as "what could be the biggest push to end President Robert Mugabe’s 36-year rule."

mangoma200cormadhuku180They were referring to a meeting last week at which lawyers Tendai Biti and Lovemore Madhuku, both leaders of tiny and insignificant political parties, one Emilia Mukaratirwa,vice-president of Dumiso Dabengwa's Zapu, which has failed to make a mark even in its stronghold of Matebeleland, and Elton Mangoma, appointed Tendai Biti to lead negotiations for the formation of what they are calling a grand coalition with Dr Joice Mujuru's People First.

The elephant that is not in the room is the MDC-T led by Morgan Tsvangirai which has defeated ZANU (PF) in previous elections and still commands massive following in the urban and rural areas, but which the so called grand coalition leaders have decided to exclude.
