As MDC-T SG Battle Hots Up, Mwonzora Presents Impressive Political CV

Mwonzora216Douglas Mwonzora who is reportedly gaining on Nelson Chamisa in public support to take over the secretary general post in the Movement for Democratic Change, has presented a campaign CV that shows a man who has been in the thick of things in most democratic developments in post independence Zimbabwe.

As most others he was arrested and detained for leading University of Zimbabwe demonstrations against state corruption and plans by President Mugabe to establish a one-party.

He was part of the so-called October 4 Revolution, 1989 which led to the closure of the University of Zimbabwe and he continued his fight against the one-party state by joining Edgar Tekere’s Zimbabwe Unity Movement in 1992 - becoming its Harare Secretary for Legal Affairs and later spokesman.


"Let The Weevils Thrive," Says Grace Mugabe

GraceParlyIf Zimbabweans were in any doubt that Grace Mugabe is either mad or an agent using bottom power to infiltrate Robert Mugabe's system, today's NewsDay report of her meeting with War Vets confirms it.

No wonder the War Veterans Chairman Jabulani Sibanda refused to attend her Mazowe meeting where Chinotimba danced for the First Lady in a way only a monkey after peanuts would.

The Zanu (PF) Women's League chairperson-designate demonstrated again that she is no lady, beginning by telling the War Vets that if any of them supported Vice-President Mujuru they should leave.

Then when war vets and government ministers were cheering her on, she said they had been overwhelmed by Grace's Holy Spirit. "We cast out demons in the name of Jesus!”

By Itai Dzamara

After we successfully submitted our petition to President Robert Mugabe yesterday, we got an immediate response, and also the perfect opportunity to get a vivid reflection of his regime's mindset and attitudes.

The Herald reported last week that Mrs Mugabe said white farmers wanted her husband to reverse the land reform and offered her $10 million, which she scoffed at, saying, "What is $10m to me?"
