Makarau v Mudede v Gono: Who Is Fooling Who, Zimbabwe?


Could it be that Rita Makarau (c) a judge and chairman of ZEC has finally decided to take on Tobaiwa Mudede (r), the Registrar General, and why over Gideon Gono's senatorial candidacy?

So we wake up to read that Gideon Gono, former Governor of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe, will not be a Senator any time soon because he is not registered to vote in Manicaland. We really care little whether or not Gono becomes a Senator. The truth is, it really won’t change anything in our lives as ordinary people. He’s just another heftily privileged fellow who happened to drop off the first class section of proverbial gravy train and is now hoping to catch another lift, albeit in the economy class. What has really caught our attention is ZEC’s new-found assertiveness, boldness and enthusiasm in applying the law and its powers regarding the voters’ roll and voter registration.

Is Zimbabwe Better Off Without Chiefs?

If this chairman of the chief's council, Chief Fortune Charumbira represents the calibre of chiefs we now have in the country, maybe the country is now better off without the chiefs.

He is quoted in the Zimbabwean confirming that only President Robert Mugabe now has chiefs at heart and that he fears for the institution of the chiefs once President Mugabe departs the political scene.

But he does not say anything to justify why the people should support the institution of chiefs or why it should exist in the first place, nor does he bother to try to examine why their own people no longer have any interest in the chiefs.

Zimbabwean Academics Bury Heads As University Reputation is Tarnished

"You can't expect the thesis to be available anywhere when the preliminary stages of vetting and admission were never done...There is no thesis and l don't think she (Grace) has capacity to attempt one...
