Arrogant AU, SADC Chairman Has An Equally Arrogant Spokesman

charambagThe arrogance that is expressed by George Charamba in this article on is exactly the reason why Zimbabweans cannot wait to see the back of Robert Mugabe.

A day after Zimbabweans expressed dismay at the amount of travelling which the President is doing, at the expense of a government that cannot afford it, Mugabe arrived in Ethiopia, the fifth country he has visited this month alone.

Before travelling to Addis Ababa, Mugabe was in Tanzania to attend the 3rd Africa-China Youth Leaders Forum and he was now attending the 18th Summit of the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) in Ethiopia, probably before taking the same plane to go and collect his wife from Dubai, all at state expense.


Biti: New Strategies to Remain Relevant?

Biti12th3Isn’t it amazing how reasonable politicians become when they have lost political battles and they are looking for ways to endear themselves to the people. We would not believe that these were the words of Tendai Biti yesterday if the story was not published in the reliable Zimbabwe Independent under the deceptive headline New Strategies To Remove Mugabe:

"Mugabe stole the 2013 elections using all kinds of sophisticated shenanigans, including rigging, and unless and until we attended to genuine electoral reforms then any participation in elections is simply legitimising a flawed process.

"Prof" Moyo Plots Clamp-Down on Civics and on Convergence Conference


The Robert Mugabe regime has already set in motion propaganda to justify cracking down on non-governmental organisations and political parties. This is despite Zimbabwean civic NGOs abandoning their support for political reforms intended to level the political playing field, in the hope of endearing themselves to the regime.

The MDC-T's support for the national dialogue proposed by retired Anglican Bishop Bakare's National Convergence Platform has also somehow been linked by Jonathan Moyo to a Zanu (PF) propaganda project by Maxwell Shumba and fired Zanu PF MPs from the Mujujru faction of Zanu (PF).

Zimbabwe, Like Kariba Disaster Waiting To Happen

Zimbabweans have been sleepwalked into a crisis which neither the Minister of Finance, Patrick Chinamasa, nor his boss no can solve, especially not by running around telling everyone who is willing to listen that the public service is blotted.

Apparently he does not have the powers to reduce the civil service and the man who does have the powers, the man who is responsible for the over-staffing in the fist place, Civil Service Commission chairman Dr Mariyawanda Nzuwa, is apparently still mandated by his principal Robert Mugabe to continue ignoring Chinamasa.

Mnangagwa Shows True Colours, Political Violence Breaks Out

Updated Sunday Zanu (PF) vice president Emmerson Mnangagwa has fired warning shots intended to cow the opposition and civic society against protesting the deteriorating economic situation in Zimbabwe.

The VP who is on record warning that he is a killer, cannot be ignored, particularly as one opposition activist is already missing and feared abducted by security forces under his control.

In fact as we write another of Itai Dzanmara colleagues in the Occupy African Unity Square movement has been abducted. And Gerrald Fokisa, ward I chairperson St Mary's is hospitalised after reported violence. Reports are coming in that fierce violence has erupted in St Mary's in Chitungwiza this morning again, with Zanu PF youths accompanied by CIO agents beating MDC supporters at Chikwanha shopping Centre. UK Zimbabweans have started collecting money to support victims of violence. Details below.
