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.

MDC-T on Dr Mujuru, Herald and Way Forward

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.

Mugabe No-Show at SADC Summit Further Fuels Health Fears

MugabeBataiPresident Robert Mugabe failed to show up at the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Double Troika Summit held in Gaborone on Monday, further fueling fears about his health.

Speculation started when Mugabe's office suddenly reversed the appointment of VP Phelekezela Mphoko as acting President when Mugabe went on his annual leave. VP Mnangagwa reportedly hired a private jet to go and confer with the 91-year-old dictator in Dubai where he is said to be holidaying with his family.

Upon Mnangagwa's return the President's Office announced that Mnangagwa was now acting President instead of Mphoko who had been appointed when the president left for holiday - the first time acting presidents have been changed midstream.

Zimbabwe: Desperate Civil Servants Form New Union

Only a repressive government can get away with not paying its civil servants because their trade unions will not accept it and they can shut down the government.

Does Trump's Pledge to Lock Up Mugabe Trump His Racism?

The Republican clown who is shocking the public with his continued strength in the polls despite racist views, Donald Trump, has added more drama for Africans by saying that he would lock up Robert Mugabe and Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni if he became US Prescient.

Besides the arrogance of thinking that the US President has powers to arrest foreign leaders, Donald Trump's assertion has got Africans talking about the failure of the international community to bring dictators to book.

Sanctions has failed to have any effect on the likes of Mugabe, and geopolitical interests have also seen the advanced countries supporting dictators just to avoid rivals having a foothold in that country.

Zimbabweans Coming Together for Way Forward

Screenshot 2015-12-21-22-38-02President Morgan Tsvangirai’s end of year message to the people of Zimbabwe.

We face a bleak Christmas, amid a serious national crisis. Over ninety percent of Zimbabweans are unemployed. The few people still on formal employment have not been paid for months, if not years while government itself is still to pay the bonus it promised civil servants last month.

Those in the security sector who were supposed to receive their 13th cheque last month did not receive it. They also did not receive it this month. For the first time, the rest of the civil servants are set to receive their December salaries after Christmas; that is if the salaries will come at all.
