A Revamped MDC-T To Emerge From Congress?

The task of the ongoing MDC-T Congress is to robustly transform the party into a strong institution that will confront the lack of political leadership in government and tackle the national challenge to deliver on the people’s aspiration for a new Zimbabwe, according to its President, Morgan Tsvangirai.

In his opening speech Tsvangirai said the debilitating economic crisis that Zimbabwe was in had exposed the lack of political leadership in government that the MDC needed to respond to.

Zimbabwe Not Made up of Cowards Only, We Have Itai.

ItaiFountain343The fear of death is inherent in all mankind. Even brutal dictators like Mugabe also fear death, thats why they spend fortunes getting the best medical care in the world. But they also know that their people are equally afraid of death. This is why they use violence or the threat of death to scare people from doing anything about the abuse or suffering that they continue to subject those people to.

Mugabe has mastered the concept of using the people's fear of death to the extent that the majority of Zimbabweans have now accepted a life of misery rather than fight for a better life. Combine with his excellent ability to effectively use deception to his advantage, Mugabe has been able to turn an entire nation into zombies who only hope in vain that their misery will end when he dies.

Abandon Hope All Who Enter Here: Zimbabwe Business as Usual

CrossEddieWe had three significant events this past week – the President opened Parliament; the IMF came to Harare on a road show; and the revenue Authority published its figures for the third quarter of the year. Taken together these three events summarize the situation in Zimbabwe very clearly and in a stark fashion.

The IMF visit was fascinating because it is the first time that we have been honored by the Breton Woods institution in having the Africa Director and a team, come to the City on a road show to present their review of African economic prospects and conditions and their forecast for the immediate outlook. The Director was impressive – clear grasp of the issues, confident and diplomatic. Eddie Cross

Occupy Africa Unity Square Protesters Arrested, Again

Occupy African Unity Square's planned public address in the square was disrupted by police in riot gear, despite organisers having informed the police all about what they were planning - or maybe because they had informed the police.
Just as Itai Dzamara began making his public address, a group of police members moved in to confiscate the megaphone.
Itai Dzamara, the initiator of the movement, went ahead without the megaphone but was soon arrested and taken away to a police post on First St.

"Mugabe Take Your Zanu (PF) To The Grave, But Not Our Zimbabwe'

War veterans have also been divided and Mugabe is being supported by the Chinotimba faction.

Whatever the outcome of his Politburo meeting today, Robert Mugabe has now fallen from being the respected Zanu (PF) father figure that he was to being just another of the contestants for power in Zanu (PF) and therefore fair game for any tactics.

The centre definitely cannot hold and what we thought was his wife's faction of the party has now proved to be his faction; it went and mobilised busloads of supporters to go to the Zanu (PF) HQ and demonstrate before the start of the meeting.

The posters were clearly made centrally, probably at the Ministry of Information or Police Printers, and the buses were dispatched to strategic centres to pick up only supporters of his wife, or rather those who are against Vice President Joice Mujuru - outside Harare of course.
