"Charge Herald With Incitement," Sikhala

Outspoken MDC activist, Job Sikhala has warned journalists and publishers of The Herald that, like the Rwandan Radio Station that was charged with inciting genocide, they will be liable for the violence resulting from their propaganda.

In a social media message in response to the ongoing torment of Zanu (PF) officials based on Herald stories, Sikhala said, the newspaper cooked its own fiction and passed it on as authentic journalism. Sikhala with MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai

An Agenda for The MDC

MwonzoraDouglasOn November 1 the MDC concluded its historically defining congress which came against the bedrock of a needless rebellion led by what are now referred to as Renewal Team. The timing and manner of this rebellion was clearly meant to cripple the MDC and ostracise its leader, Morgan Tsvangirai.

Having failed to dislodge Morgan Tsvangirai the only hope for the so called Renewal Team was for a failed congress. However in the face of a very successful and orderly congress the new hope for both the Renewal Team and Zanu PF now lies in the new leadership failing in its duty to lead the people of Zimbabwe to victory - a huge responsibility that lies on the shoulders of the new leadership.

'Mugabe Tortured, Cheated in 2002 Election. Mbeki Protected Him'

The South African Mail and Guardian (M&G)'s ten year struggle to access the Khampepe Report into the 2002 Zimbabwean Elections has ended with it being released - it vindicates those who thought the election was not free and fair.

The two judges who were commissioned by President Thabo Mbeki to carry out the study - Dikgang Moseneke and Sisi Khampepe, concluded, for what its worth now, that the three-day voting process complied with the legislative requirements.

But there was also pre-election intimidation, killing of 107, mainly opposition members, lengthy legal battles to change laws in favour of the Zanu-PF - mainly around citizenship and the reduction of polling stations in urban areas where the MDC had its strongest support base.

Did President Mbeki deliberately hide the truth?

‘Rugare Gumbo, Join The MDC-T If You Want Fair Play’

Robert Mugabe has confirmed that he wants to remain in office forever by descending like a tonne of bricks on those perceived to be questioning his continued stay at the helm of the fractious Zanu (PF) party.

Zanu (PF) battle-lines are now clearly drawn between those wanting Mugabe to spell out how his succession is going to be handled and those who are happy with Mugabe’s opaque system.
