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.

Charumbira: Masvingo Council, ZNA Must Answer Questions

When we saw the Charumbira Zhing Zhong story in the Herald we thought it was a new story that was just developing, only to discover upon further research that the The Herald wrote about this issue back in January.

The strange thing is that in January Masvingo Rural District Council, through its chief executive officer Martin Mubviro, said that it had told Zhing Zhong project proponents that the project had to be approved by the community before they could move in.But now the same officer says the project can go ahead, even before that has been dealt with.

Charumbira A Wake Up Call To All Zimbabwean Rural Communities

CharumbiChiefThis story is a wakeup call for all rural people in Zimbabwe, which is everyone really because everyone has a rural home. The government, represented by Masvingo Rural District Council, went and signed an agreement with a Chinese company to start a cement factory in the Charumbira area of Masvingo which is going to displace about 600 families.

The Memorandum of Agreement has been signed with the Chinese, but no land has even been identified where the villagers are going to be resettled, which means that they have not even been consulted.

Political Instability as Zimbabwe By-Election Approaches

Local Zimbabwean election observers have noted more acts of intimidation in the planned June 10 elections which the main Zimbabwean opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC-T) is boycotting.

The Zanu (PF) candidate in Hurungwe West ward 16 Keith Guzah has banned people attending his rallies from using smart phones saying they are being used to send information to newspapers - which means newspapers are also not supposed to know what goes on at his rallies.

Signs of Times: Crumbling Zanu (PF) Protection Exposes Erstwhile Untouchable Chiyangwa

chiyangwaPhilip Chiyangwa's attempt to extort millions of dollars from 8 000 settlers at Odar Farm in Harare South seems to have hit a brick wall, but more important is how such a deal had been crafted to the extent of the Ministry of Local Government writing a letter handing over the land to Chiyangwa.

Local Government Minister and Ignatious Chombo has already been fingered in many corruption scandals, but so far he has survived, and it would not surprise if this is not another of those corrupt deals. But who is going to accuse him?

The report in The Herald today that Odar Housing Development Consortium which sold stands to the settlers has exposed the illegality of the actions of the Local Government Ministry has shed more light on the murky affairs of the Ministry, already notorious for its uncaring administration. Could Chiyangwa's time be up?
