"From Among US, Leaders Will Emerge"

“Who is Wilfred Mhanda," asked Didymus Mutasa of the national hero who ensured that our war of national liberation continued to be prosecuted, even when the national command had been paralysed in power struggle and tribal war.

By all accounts Mutasa was in the comfort of party houses in Maputo while Mhanda (aka Dzinashe Machingu) was not only commanding the fighting, but also carrying out the political leadership work, including the negotiating for the hosting of Zanla in Mozambique.

But the history of the liberation struggle, according to Robert Mugabe's Zanu (PF) has been conveniently written to glorify those in power. Maybe that explains why, despite wealth, old age and illness they cannot afford to get out of power - because the true history might be written.

MDC-T Cabinet Damns Zanu (PF) On Economy

MashakadaTThe govenment's Indigenisation policy flip-flops are mere posturing by a corrupt Zanu (PF) which will not improve the investment climate in Zimbabwe. They have failed to answer whether or not the 51% threshold is still in force or not and the so called Production Sharing Model (PSM) implies a 100% indigenisation threshold, which is even worse than the current 51%.

So instead of easing the Indigenisation and Economic Empowerment policy, the Zanu (PF) government is actually further tightening the screws. If the 51% threshold was a foot brake to investment, the PSM is actually a hand brake and the last nail in the coffin of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in that it doesn't inspire investor confidence, says the MDC-T acting secretary general Tapiwa Mashakada.

Zimbabwe Grand Coalition: Elitist Plot to Dupe Donors


Over the past few weeks the MDC led by Professor Welshman Ncube and an outfit led by Hon. Tendai Biti have been talking glowingly about their “Grand” Coalition. Some of their officials have even described it as a “grand coalition of democrats”.

The following questions have to be answered: Is this coalition indeed grand? Is it indeed a coalition of democrats? Is it capable of prosecuting the democratic struggle in Zimbabwe?

What is needed in Zimbabwe is change; for Zimbabweans to be delivered from an oppressive regime and the debilitating poverty, misery and oppression that the Zanu (PF) regime has condemned them to.

Africa Day Rally: Renewal Still Sticking To MDC-T

TsvangiHSThe Africa Day reporting of opposition politics in Zimbabwe suggests that 'news' websites are keen to create news instead of reporting it; firstly manufacturing a rumour that the failure of MDC-T President, Morgan Tsvangirai, to attend the Africa Day rally was due to poor attendance, then reporting fiction about collapsed talks between the MDC-T and its rebels.

According to reports everywhere else Nelson Chamisa, the MDC-T organising secretary, got up and apologised for Tsvangirai's failure to attend due to illness, and even gave graphic descriptions of his valiant efforts which were rebuffed by doctors who thought Tsvangirai should rest and recuperate.

Climb-Down Or Climb-Up, Zimbabwe Is Not Sellable

heraldbattle1The substance of the Sunday Mail's now controversial "Climb-Down" article is probably not as important as the fact that The Sunday Mail dared to write that the government had climbed down! President Robert Mugabe's government climbing down!?

The Editor obviously needs re-education - a minimum of 5 years on the ambulance-chasing desk until he learns the culture. It was so poor that The Herald Editor thought he deserved a public rebuke with an equally controversial headline "Sunday Mail Misfired!"

MDC Renewal Team: Time To Move On

hollandThere is no shortage of drama in the MDC-T saga, but unfortunately the drama does not bring us any closer to ending Zanu (PF)’s corrupt and incompetent rule. Today is no exception; Tendai Bitii now wants to come back and employees who had aligned themselves with his faction and stopped coming to work now say they want their jobs back.

The same workers have been busy trying to lay the groundwork for the still-born MDC-Renewal Team, while others had sort employment in Zanu (PF)-aligned organisations where they were probably busy compromising their former employer.
