Didymus Mutasa A Paradox of Tomfoolery!

Gamatox“Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard its spots? Neither can you do good who are accustomed to doing evil.” Jeremiah 13 v 23.

The pen of inspiration, through the prophet Jeremiah, gives an interesting perspective on human behavior. It is the prophet’s submission that evilness is an ingrained trait hard to shake off.

So difficult that even when the desire to do what is good is there, it cannot prevail. Simply because nothing good dwells in an evil man!

Of Mugabe's Illegal Sanctions Fig Leafs and the AU

Zimbabwe Vigil Diary: 25th April 2015
The ignominious failure of the Mugabe regime’s court challenge to the sanctions imposed by the European Union has escaped much attention. That the challenge was a ludicrous waste of public money was obvious to the Vigil from the start – thrown into comic relief anyway by the gradual removal of the targeted measures.

Why Spend $40m on One-Sided by-Elections When People Have No Food

Proof, if it was ever needed, that there is no environment for free elections in Zimbabwe - Budiriro MP Costa Machingauta, bloodied after attending his party's rally in another suburb of Harare. 

There is also proof that Zanu (PF) decisions are taken only with power-retension in mind than the welfare of the people.

In 2010 President Mugabe signed an affidavit in which he said sanctions had wreaked havoc on the economy and the government had "very little fiscal space" and was thus unable to hold by-elections in three constituencies.

No Elections No Reforms Rallies Start in Glen View

The Zimbabwean opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC-T) has spelled out the minimum reforms to be undertaken before it can participate in elections - including a biometric voter system, the overhaul of the secretariat of electoral commission, equal access to state media, implementation of new Constitution, neutrality of traditional leaders, and free election observation.

But Zanu (PF) thugs did not let them forget that the ruling party can turn on violence and turn it off, or moderate it as required. This woman was one of several beaten by ruling Zanu (PF) thugs for attending the opposition rally in Harare's Glen View suburb where the "No-Reforms-No-Elections" campaign rallies were launched by MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai.

Jonathan Moyo's Arrogance On Display

moyo"But Jonathan Moyo Bakithi!"

Maybe Professor Jonathan Moyo believes that he is talking to his children when he speaks to the citizens of Zimbabwe through his mouthpiece The Herald in which today he said, the reinstatement of civil servants’ bonuses by President Mugabe at a rally "is final and there should be no further debate on the matter."

No further debate! Even if I did not want to debate this latest exhibition of what we already know - that there is no economic policy being followed by the Zanu (PF) government - Moyo's remarks would force me to look for something to say about it.
