Mangoma A Sting, A Diversion, or a Crutch?
Written by Makusha Mugabe   
Tuesday, 18 February 2014 07:40

MangomaThe Elton Mangoma affair is increasingly looking like a sting operation which has left a difficult public relations task for the MDC-T to contain - particularly since it involves violence, and every Zimbabwean would like to be heard condemning it.

Morgan Tsvangirai's spokesman Luke Tamborinyoka has moved to tell the Press that Tsvangirai had actually rescued Mangoma and Secretary-General Tendai Biti from a tense crowd at Harvest House. But his statement has deepened the mystery and raised suspicion of a hidden hand at play, which has provided a crutch for some limping and crippled politicial actors, or non-actors.

The MDC-T USA has joined the chorus of condemnation of the violence together with some unseeming characters trying to make a political meal out of the whole thing. Tamborinyoka said facts were getting lost in the convoluted media narratives on the event, including an impression being created that President Tsvangirai was complicit in violence.

Herald Takes Advantage of Mangoma Folly

heraldbattle1The Elton Mangoma letter demanding that the MDC-T President Morgan Tsvangirai should resign and his subsequent 'assault' by alleged MDC-T youths, which has now been reported to the police, have provided Zanu (PF) substantial propaganda ammunition.

The Herald assistant news editor, Takunda Maodza has now gone as far as writing an imaginary story about Botswana President Ian Khama calling on Tsvangirai to resign and presenting an imaginary proposed MDC-T hierarchy which is clearly intended to cause more division in the party.

The Herald carried the headline ‘Khama Tells Tsvangirai to Step Down’ despite admitting that it had no confirmation of the story that the President of Botswana Ian Khama, who has been a pillar of support for MDC-T, had telephoned Tsvangirai asking him to step down.

Elton Mangoma, with a shirt he claims was shredded when MDC-T youths tried to drag him from a car. He has now reported the case to the Police.  

If it were possible to measure it, I would say the outcry arising in social media following the stage-managed beating of Elton Mangoma outside Harvest House is louder than the outcries that went up while Robert Mugabe's government was massacring over 500 people during the 2008 election.

Crisis of Governance Grips Zimbabwe
Written by Eddie Cross

Eddie Cross: This month we will spend millions on a birthday party for a 90-year-old man who has presided over this mess for 34 years. We will also see his daughter, who has been studying in Hong Kong and living in a flat worth $5 million, marry in Harare in a ceremony which will also cost millions and a reception at their massive home in Harare which is being expanded and refurbished without any regard to the cost.

Since July 2013 the situation in Zimbabwe has deteriorated sharply on many fronts, economic, political, diplomatic and internal governance. Each represents a special challenge; together they constitute a situation that demands some form of radical and immediate response.

Just look at each of the above aspects – economic; the economy is shrinking again. We now have deflation to contend with, completely the opposite of hyperinflation, but still damaging and dangerous. There is no confidence and capital flight continues across the board with many banks teetering on the edge.

Corruption Discussion Now On Menu in Zimbabwe
Written by Editors   
Friday, 14 February 2014 12:51

Thomas Mapfumo must now feel exonerated having sang about it 14 years ago.

Whatever the reason for the state media exposing corruption after years of ignoring it, the result can only be positive as it is now being discussed openly by Generals, today in the Zanu (PF) Politburo, yesterday in the MDC-T National Executive, in all the newspapers and all over the social media, and in the non-governmental organisations.

We bring you below some of the most interesting observations and alternative solutions proposed this week:
