Zimbabwe To Get Thug(ress) For First Lady - Mrs Mnangagwa

MnangagwaAuxThe face of a Zanu (PF) Thug (Thugress?) Mrs Auxilia Mnangagwa who is likely to be First Lady if Robert Mugabe does not complete his term. 

Heal Zimbabwe, a transitional justice ngo, has condemned the intimidation and threats being perpetrated by the Deputy President, Emmerson Mnangagwa's wife, Auxilia.

ZANU (PF) MP for Chirumhanzu-Zibagwe constituency, Mrs Mnangagwa is accused of having confronted the MDC-T Chairperson for Ward 11, James Mavedzenge, whom she forced to denounce his support for the MDC-T.

When he obliged, she threatened that soldiers would beat him up if he does not bring other suspected MDC-T supporters in the ward so that they can also publicly denounce their party.

Zimbabwe Electoral Commissioner Makarau Must Urgently Investigate Hurungwe Violence

"Will Rita Makarau Now Investigate Zanu (PF) Political Violence?"

A candidate in the upcoming elections, former Zanu (PF) provincial chairman, Temba Mliswa, has made serious ellegations that traditional leaders in Hurungwe West were assaulted in the presence of senior Zanu (PF) officials and police.

The reason they were assaulted was that they support Mliswa according to the reputable newspaper, Newsday, which has published the story having established its veracity, but Zanu (PF) officials are denying that this happened.

Surely if Mrs Rita Makarau is an electoral commissioner worthy of the name, in the interest of protecting the integrity of the election, she should immediately, before the evidence is erased, go to Hurungwe and establish what went on.

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!

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.

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.

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.
