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.

It was Dr Mariyawanda Nzuwa who hired the unqualified Zanu (PF) graduates of Border Gezi School of Ideology and youth militia who had helped Zanu (PF) beat the MDC into submission during elections.

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


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

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.

Whatsapp Jonathan Moyo, And The Weevils

Two days after one editor of the Herald was suspended for writing the truth which Zanu PF) bosses do not want to be known, the political editor, Tichaona Zindoga, has come up with fiction which is guaranteed to endear him to them - that United States right-wing establishment is planning civil unrest in Zimbabwe.

Unfortunately for them the story is so patently false that readers can easily find out for themselves what the truth it, which makes us wonder whether Zimpapers editor-in-chief Jonathan Moyo does not know that people will eventually find out.

The answer is that Johnathan Moyo himself does not care about those who will eventually find out, The Herald is meant for the majority readers whom he believes have no other source of news - which explains why they do not want to licence any other media coming from outside the Zanu (PF) stables.

On The Small Matter of Tendai Biti

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.

Rebels Without A Cause: Biti, Mangoma and Co

BitiDumpedConfusion now reigns supreme in both the MDC Renewal Camp and The Herald, representing Zanu (PF), who do not seem to know what to make of the MDC-T's legal victory ejecting its 21 rebel MPs from Parliament.

The logic of the situation compelled Speaker Jacob Mudenda to accept MDC-T Secretary General Douglas Mwonzora's argument that Tendai Biti and company no longer represented the interests of the MDC-T in Parliament, no matter how convenient it was for Zanu (PF).
