Sibanda Defies Msika For Mugabe


The tussle between Robert Mugabe and the Matebeleland Provincial Zanu (PF) leadership has apparently escalated with war veterans leader, Jabulani Sibanda, defying calls by vice-President Msika to stop campaigning for President Mugabe.

He led veterans of Zimbabwe’s liberation struggle yesterday afternoon in a march in Bulawayo in support of President Robert Mugabe’s candidature.

President Mugabe is expected in Bulawayo tomorrow to cap National University of Science and Technology students at a graduation ceremony. (Right: War Vets in Stanely Square this afternoon)

Gono Now Offers Farmers Holidays

gonoIn another display of failure or refusal to address real issues affecting the Zimbabwean economy, and further straying from its core business, the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe has announced free holidays in the Sadc region, farm implements, inputs and US$2 500 spending money as prizes for best farmers this season.

These are some of the unorthodox measures Zimbabwe has adopted to coax new farmers to make them produce for the country, which were announced by RBZ Governor Gideon Gono at the launch of the second phase of the Farm Mechanisation Programme.

Gono said the measures were meant to recognize the contribution of new farmers to Zimbabwe’s goal of self-sufficiency in food production. Both small scale (A1) and medium scale (A2) farmers were targeted as beneficiaries of the noble incentives.

Rigging Ruled Out


MDC activists from across the UK who attended the Birmingham Branch fundrising at the weekend cried foul when Dorothy Dlamini (left), a member of the Birmingham fundrising committee, won the coveted humper.

Eddy Zvavareyi, also a member, assured them that there was no rigging.

"It was a matter of luck," he said.

The visitors from Wolverhampton, Southhampton, South Beds, South-End-On-Sea and other branches were however kept well-entertained by Birmingham youth chair and super DJ, Robson Njerere.

UK Youths In Campaign To Save Deportee

Unfinished business
Machida (fore), Mashakada (back)
It is still not clear whether Immigration Authorities managed to deport Amos Chifamba, the MDC South Yorkshire youth chairman, after MDC UK youths mounted an operation to infiltrate passengers boarding the Kenya Airways flight and alerted them that their plane was being used to deport asylum seekers to their possible death.

MDC UK youth chairman, Jameson Mashakada, commanded the operation which saw a small force of eight youth members clandestinely distributing more than 100 leaflets to passengers who were boarding the Nairobi-bound plane.

Chifamba Deported, Maud To Follow

Home Office policy means removals are not enforced to Zimbabwe.

So I would like to allay your fears of being forcibly returned.

The Home Office plans to return you to Malawi.

Therefore the country situation has no bearing in your situation.
Yours faithfully
D Smith
CIO/HEO(Home Office)


There is increasing anger among Zimbabweans at the hypocricy by the Gordon Brown government which denounces the dictatorial Harare government in public, but is actively deporting opponents of the same regime who who are abused during the deportation and face torture when they arrive in Zimbabwe.

Amos Chifamba was deported to Malawi which will deport him to Zimbabwe where he can face torture and even death at the hands of the lawless Mugabe government, but the British authorities have obviously decided to overlook this for poilitical expediency.
