Baffling Wisdom of African Leaders

Sir Malcom
"Play for high states..."
Africa has more to lose if the European Union – Africa Summit fails to happen because of its leaders’ insistence on President Robert Mugabe’s participation. But do the leaders care?

Part Four of House of Commons Zimbabwe Debate See Part Three

Conservative MP Sir Malcolm Rifkind demanded that the UK government at least force the issue of Robert Mugabe’s attendance at the EU-Africa summit to a vote rather than give in to Portugal’s insistence.

Portugal, which has the Presidency of the EU and would host the summit, is keen to invite President Robert Mugabe to avoid a threatened boycott-in-solidarity by African leaders.

Stop The Deportations to Zimbabwe

Representations across Britain these days will demand that all deportations to Zimbabwe be suspended because people who are forced to return face persecution by a paranoid and moribund dictatorship.

Thousands of asylum-seekers fear they will face torture or even murder if they are deported to Zimbabwe, an unstable state plagued by human rights abuses.

Their fight for the new Home Secretary, Jacqui Smith, to take a more compassionate approach to the issue is being backed by many MPs of all parties, by refugee groups and by trade unions.

Amnesty International has already warned that executions, murders, arbitrary arrests and imprisonment, torture and life-threatening prison conditions are routine in Zimbabwe.

As inflation reached an estimated 13 400 percent the Zimbabwe government has again been beating up and detaining civil rights activists who were demanding a new Constitution so that Zimbabwe can have free and fair elections.

Because such a demand, for free and fair elections, would obviously threaten any government that is operating on five-digit inflation, the Zimbabwe government decided to beat the National Constitutional Assembly (NCA) demonstrators who were not threatening the police in anyway.

No Magistrates, Prosecutors
Written by Makusha Mugabe

Courts now just buildings
Another indicator of the level of crisis in Zimbabwe's economy is that magistrates and prosecutors earn less than $3 million a month, almost half of the $5.5 million required by a family of five per month, according to estimates by the Central Statistical Office.

This has resulted in a high staff exodus from the courts. In Bulawayo alone 10 magistrates are said to have left the service since January for employment in neighbouring countries.

Bulawayo Magistrates Court and the High Court in Bulawayo are losing personnel at an alarming rate - especially magistrates and prosecutors who in most cases have a minimum of three years university education.

Part Three of Commons Debate on Zimbabwe. See Part Two

Lib. Dem. John Barret
While Zimbabwe shares the problems of underdevelopment like famine, health, conflict, corruption, unemployment and too many guns with other countries in the region, the unique thing about Zimbabwe is that while the other Governments are working with their people, neighbours and donors to find solutions the Zimbabwean Government is part of the problem.

This statement by Liberal Democrat, John Barrett of Edinburgh West could be challenged on whether Zimbabwe should be having these problems of underdevelopment since she had relatively better infrastructure, an educated population, and mature farming, mining and manufacturing sectors, but his conclusion that the Government is part of the problem is certainly inescapable.

Part 2 of House of Commons Debate on Zimbabwe. See Part one.  

Kate Hoey
African leaders should individually do more to be seen to be contributing to the struggle for democracy in Zimbabwe, and they must increasingly be held accountable if they do not, according to the emerging doctrine in the House of Commons.  

Vauxhaull MPKate Hoey, with much support in the House, said when AU chairman and President of Ghana Kufuor was harassed by Free-Zim Youths at Chatham House he described what is happening in Zimbabwe as “embarrassing” to the AU.
