Zanu (PF) Continues Taking Zimbabweans For Granted

It is a very sad day when the academic leaders now join the ruling dictatorship to impose repression, using violence, intellectual dishonesty, religious dishonesty, bribery, subterfuge and patronage. Levi Nyagura

US Throws Mwonzora A Lifeline in MDC-T Zimbabwe Election


The Movement for Democratic Change -United States (MDC-USA) province of the Zimbabwean opposition party led by Morgan Tsvangirai has nominated lawyer Douglas Mwonzora  for the secretary-general post which had almost certainly been sawn up by Nelson Chamisa (r), the former ITC Minister.

The congress of the opposition movement which was robbed out of government by Robert Mugabe’s Zanu (PF) was brought forward to resolve a leadership despute.

The congress is currently in its provincial-congresses stage where the provinces are nominating candidates for national leadership.

Zimbabweans Standing Up To State-Sanctioned Violence

On-going demolitions are not new; here MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai was touring demolished homes in Ruwa last year. What is new is that residents are now resisting.

Zimbabweans are increasingly resisting violations of their rights, with residents of Glen Norah B arming themselves to resist demolitions of their houses and youths resisting the arbitrary arrests of vulnerable vendors in Gweru.

Illegal Chitungwiza Demolitions, Rights Violations: 'Police Must Act'

Following the demolition of houses by Chitungwiza Town Council allegedly in violation of a Court Order to stop the demolitions, the Harare Metropolitan Residents Forum (HAMREF) has said demolitions that are going on in Chitungwiza, Epworth and Seke, backed the Ministry of Local Government, are in direct violation of the residents’ constitutional right to shelter.

This display of failure by policy makers to adhere to rule of law is causing suffering, as narrated by the woman in this video at a Chra meeting this week.

Guebuzza's Frelimo Linked To Drug Baron Bashir

GuebuzaThere is apparently more than meets the eye to Mozambican President Armando Guebuza's refusal to accept a luxury car gifted to him by the Confederation of Mozambican Business Associations (CTA).

Africa Confidential reports that Mohamed Bashir Suleiman - designated a 'drugs kingpin' by the United States - appeared at the banquet of a the CTA which was a fundraiser for Frelimo.

Filipe Nyussi, the presidential candidate set to replace Guebuzza of the governing Frente de Libertação de Moçambique (Frelimo), was reportedly infuriated by Bashir’s presence, because it confirmed that the drug lord was a financier of Frelimo.

It Is Now or Never for Tsvangirai

TsvangieThe simple version of the law of the jungle posits that when elephants fight it is the grass that suffers. It priestly ends there, but the catch is, even when they make love the hapless grass is not spared. Only God knows the collateral damage induced on it .

As such we are living in very interesting, if not dangerous times in Zimbabwe, politically. The simmering but potent cracks within ZANU (PF) should not be ignored. It is reality of a poor succession plan at display. Prior to now it could be dismissed, but now it is a different story altogether. The centre, it seems, can no longer hold.

Tsvangirai whose party is going through its brought-forward congress seems ready to take full advantage of the situation.
