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.

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.

Will Car-Crash Zimbabwe Gov't Compensate Those Killed By Dirty Water?

cholera081Is the government or the local authorities going to compensate the families of 300 people who reportedly died from drinking contaminated water piped into their homes? If not maybe the families should sue the government, since it seems that that is the only language that they understand.

According to the Herald, funeral parlours, service stations, fuel holding depots and food processing plants are disposing raw effluent into the country's water sources, with local authorities taking water from there to pipe into people's homes. Deteriorating conditions and budgets pointing to another outbreak of poverty diseases...

Delayed Wages Signal Zimbabwe Car Crash

chaworaI having been talking to several people back home and the number of people that have gone for months without being paid is frightening, to say the least. This affects people working for local councils across the country, people working in the private sector and NGOs. Chawora (l)

I am hearing that all all government employees, except for the army ’s salaries have been moved again this months, amid rumours that soldiers were on the verge of going on strike a few months ago.
