A SADC Chairman Whose Own House is Burning

Mugasadc14So how does an SADC chairman whose own house is on fire leave it to go and put out another fire in the region? He does’t, because he cannot - a stark lesson for SADC leaders in how to elect their leaders - at least they should be stable and uphold SADC values.

But it is now obvious that President Mugabe now fears that if he leaves Zimbabwe his own deputy might somehow overtake him, because of his refusal to allow democratic change of power in his party, let alone state power. 

And if reports from Zimbabwe are anything to go by, President Mugabe has also become a liability to the country because the Chinese told his delegation in China that they won't give any loans to Zimbabwe until he has gone.

Such terms have traditionally been reserved for the opposition MDC, but this is the first time anyone in Zanu (PF) has been accused of harbouring regime change, in a statement issued by the Party spokesman.

VP Mujuru now firmly in Mugabe's sights

Zimbabwe State Journalists Protect, Not Expose, Corrupt Politicians


Chronicle Editor Mduduzi and Zimmail (Mpofu) Editor Chimakure bring shame to journalim. Social media activist Gift Mawire trying to bring back the pride.

Zimbabwean state media editors, their hands already with full trying to spin that Zimbabwe is now coming out of its doldrums following some aid and 'deals' with China, found themselves in the line of fire from social media activists when they came out to defend their allegedly corrupt boss, instead of exposing him.

Zimbabwe China Deals Not Bad Per Se, But...

zhangazhaThe full details of  ‘mega deals’ that President Mugabe is said to have been signingduring his state visit to China are yet to emerge.  From the snippets that we have read in the state controlled media, these deals range from infrastructural investments pacts through to a greater number of memorandums of understanding.

The latter will require feasibility studies while the former are largely related to Chinese corporations investing in our railways, roads and in the extraction of gas from Gwayi-Shangani in Matebeleland North.

The reception to these deals has been dual in tone. The state media has generally lauded these deals not only by describing them as major, but also referring to them as historic. The private media has urged caution and also sought to emphasise the point of how the country may now be beholden to the Chinese by mortgaging the meagre mineral resources that we have.
