Zimbabwe 2018: Tsvangirai To Join Mujuru or Vice Versa, If At All


A Rejoinder To Alex Magaisa’s Why Mujuru Cannot Afford to Ignore Tsvangirai
Yesterday Alex Magaisa wrote about Vice President Joice Mujuru as if she was the new game in town, only needing to bring the MDC-T on-side to be able to take power, but this thinking can only be shaped by a mentality that sees Zanu (PF) as invincible.

Despite Magaisa saying that he bases his analysis on facts on the ground, and admitting that Mai Mujuru’s support is an unknown quantity, the pitfall in Alex's analysis, in my view, is that he had already chosen her as the main actor in his analysis, as the subject of his advice on taking the Presidency in 2018 - this despite that she has not even declared her interest.

MDC-T Election Boycott Observed in Zimbabwe, But Irregularities Continued

electionWhile the main opposition Movement for Democratic Change, MDC-T’s, call for a boycott of the by-election yesterday seems to have been well adhered-to, it has also been justified by reports of serious irregularities.

Local monitors, Zimbabwe Election Support Network reported numerous incidents of ruling ZANU PF officials in different constituencies asking voters to register their names and identity particulars before they went to cast their vote.

After casting their votes, voters were being asked to pass through the same registration centres to confirm that they had voted. These reports came from observers in Tsholotsho (Zabagwuadi Business Centre) and Headlands (Nehumba Primary School).

As South Africa Prepares To Take Over AU Chairmanship

Eddie Cross says Zimbabweans have become victims of a criminal elite that has entrenched and enriched itself to the detriment of everyone else and its neighbors should wake up to the reality of the collateral damage being inflicted on their own countries and help us achieve change without recourse to violence.CrossEddie

When a government fails to conduct its duties as the principal center of authority in a State, the consequences are often borne, not by the residents alone, but by other States and regions. VOA also carried the same warning:

Zimbabwe's First Family Now Butt of Ridicule



Oops!! We gave Anne Kansiime, a Ugandan comedian, a lot of kudos that actually belong to Adeola Fayehun, a Nigerian comediane and guerilla journalist seen in this video.

She has been described by Zimbabwean Information Minister @ProfJNMoyo as a Boko Haram journalist after she ambushed President Mugabe in Nigeria, waking him from his slumber and asking him whether it was not about time he stepped down and when there were going to be democratic elections in Zimbabwe.

Unpacking Tendai Biti‘s “Collective Foolishness of the Zimbabwean Opposition”

bitiptouch1Joice Mujuru's people reportedly told Biti's Renewals that they would not add any value to a coalition because they lacked peple on the ground 

Former MDC-T secretary general, Tendai Biti, classified what is going in the opposition in Zimbabwe as “collective foolishness” - a term which must be interrogated, lest everyone in the opposition is painted with the same brush.

Many in the opposition would take exception to being labelled as such, as they have remained steadfast in pursuing the goals for which they joined and indeed formed opposition parties.

And the man who is accusing them of collective foolishness is personally accountable for much of the foolishness - if by foolishness he was refering to failure to unite and dislodge the repressive regime. He has been at the centre of putting his personal interests ahead of party interests.

Birds of a Feather? Mugabe, Mbasogo, Al-Bashir


Robert Mugabe, perpetrator of the Matebeleland genocide, International Criminal Court (ICC) fugitive, Omar Al Bashir, and  Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, dictator of Equatorial Guinea whose other powers include being the “chief magistrate” in the country where human rights violations are routine.

The choice of President Robert Mugabe's last visits as he prepares to hand over the chairmanship of the AU to Jacob Zuma, reflect his true friends - the corrupt dictators of Equatorial Guinea and Sudan, Presidents Teodoro Nguema Mbasogo and Omar Al-Bashir who was being inaugurated following an election boycotted by the main opposition.
