Mugabe To Stay In Power By Ginya?


Mugabe addressing bussed-in party officials from all over the country in the smaller Gwanzura Stadium, not the traditional Independence Day venue, Rufaro Stadium.

As it becomes increasingly clear that Robert Mugabe and his Zanu (PF) lost the election three weeks ago, Mugabe presided over Independence celebrations at which he gave his clearest indication yet that he is planning to remain in power by force (Ginya).

Mr Mbeki, instead of bringing a crisis situation which is threatening to explode on his borders to a scheduled African Summit of the UN Security Council, which he was chairing, had chosen to ignore the issue as has become his trademark.

Zanu (PF) Brutality Near Nyazvidzi River

By Farai Maruzani, an MDC member living in Birmingham, UK. Our prayers are with him as his uncle who was assaulted by Zanu (PF) thugs is critically ill and not allowed to seek medical treatment.Image

Last night (15-04-2008) in Buhera South Constituency my illiterate uncle Jaison was bundled out of his rural bedroom (known as hozi in Shona) by some people who were campaigning for ZANU PF in the election three weeks ago and who claimed to be War Veterans.

They accused him of voting for Tsvangirai instead of Mugabe for President. His hozi was ransacked and red cards and whistles were found, together with some MDC campaign materials. This was beginning of an ordeal that is now about to kill him.

The ANC's policy-making National Working Committee issued a statement saying it would be "undemocratic and unprecedented" for Zimbabwe to hold a run-off presidential vote without first announcing election results.

Zuma's ANC backs Tsvangirai as he proceeds to Mozambique for more lobbying ahead a forced run-off with Robert Mugabe.
