Zimbabwe: The Self Destruct Button

ZhuwaoPSmoking Mbanje with finger on self-destruct button? Indigenous Minister Patrick Zhuwawo

In the past two weeks we have seen Zanu PF virtually tearing itself apart and in the process it is sealing the fate of the country. I have never seen the country in such a state of despair and despondency.

Last week I was on a plane to Kenya and spoke to a businessman who was on his way to a lodge on the Zambezi in Zambia to spend a few days fishing and relaxing. He said to me that he simply had to get away. He has closed his factory and put it onto a care and maintenance basis as they could not cope with the power outages.

UK Sucking Up To China, The Last Thing The World's Oppressed Need

HamondXiUK foreign secretary Philip Hammond defended the UK's invitation to Chinese firms to invest in its nuclear energy industry, brushing aside fears that it might put the UK's national security at risk. National security depends on economic security, he said, seemingly brushing aside concerns raised in the British media, including by a former adviser to David Cameron, Steve Hilton, who said China was a "barbarous tyranny" at home and a "big bully abroad" and that it was dangerous for Britain to treat China’s human rights record and other subjects as taboo.

Debt forgiveness, FDI Only Way Out for Zimbabwe - Ushewokunze

zimruinsThis piece is by Mutemwa Ushewokunze, described as Vice President for Institutional Sales at a global investment banking and diversified financial services company headquartered in Australia, first published on his own page.

Our regular contributor, Eddie Cross described it as "an exceptional summary of the crisis facing Zimbabwe today." We agree with his view that a serious political, economic and social crisis is now truly staring us in the face and that real change for growth can only come from both local and foreign elements, giving a fresh political policy thrust that builds a competent and actionable government which is interested in the welfare of the people - ed.

Zimbabwe: Dire is an Understatement

The bull in me has taken its leave. The domestic economic situation in Zimbabwe is beyond dire. Structural unemployment (approx 90%) and non-existent growth (1-2% likely to be revised down) are the consequences of economic mismanagement and lack of policy formation.

With three cabinet reshuffles in nine months, and almost $200m (of a $3.1b budget) being spent on the President’s Office since the beginning of the year, combined with wages at 80% of expenditure, it’s a wonder that there are some who are looking past the risk and still investing in Zimbabwe.

Newsday Is Seeing Shadows - Changezimbabwe

MDCHardhatNewsday has become adept at creating non-existent plots in MDC, then getting people to comment on them, thus making them seem credible.

This is the case with their story today Tsvangirai Seeing Shadows — Chamisa  where the media itself is fomenting "fresh fissures that threaten to tear the MDC apart for the umpteenth time" when in fact there are no such developments on the ground.

The fact that the conspiracy theories are being centred on Nelson Chamisa, who lost in his bid for the Secretary General post in the party, suggests that there are forces who are trying to encourage him to make an illegal bid.

The motives can only be to weaken the MDC which has remained strong which Zanu (PF) faces imminent collapse. It is only idle minds or those who have everything to lose in Zanu (PF)‘s collapse who could be drawn to such an agenda.

British Zimbabwean Farm Invasion Exposes Conservative Foreign Policy

CameronDaveThere can be no clearer condemnation of the Tory Government's policy of accommodating the dictatorial Zanu (PF) government in Zimbabwe than the fact that Grace Mugabe's relative who was given British citizenship is now reported to be seizing a white-owned near Harare.
