Dr Ruhanya Offside on Zimbabwe Regime Change

Going by the new report on Dr Pedzisai Ruhanya‘s recommendations on the right direction for Zimbabwean civil society, what we can say is that Dr Ruhanya has mixed up his issues here.

That Mushowe put this in his inaugural speech sets the tone how he plans to implement indigenisation policy - a policy which the Mugabe government always talks of planning to clarify or modify, but never does anything about.

Zanu (PF) Tribal War Spirals Into Putin's Orbit


Saviour Kasukuwere and Mnangagwa dragging Zimbabwe into the Russian Orbit...

Zimbabweans and indeed the international community are only now discovering how the Mugabe regime has all but destroyed the country - its economy shutting down faster than they can recover it and its politics degenerating into tribal war.
