"Luton MDC-T UK Branch Had Nothing To Do With Renewal Meeting"

mdclogStatement by MDC-T UK Midlands South District Chairman, Pepukai Gonese:

MDC -T South-Beds/ Luton branch members organised a fundraising activity for the party on Saturday, using money belonging to the party, including individual contributions from branch members which was also meant for the MDC-T.

When this event was organised nobody told branch members that there was going to be a meeting of the Renewal project. Less than three quarters of the branch’s executives knew about the meeting and only two from South-Beds branch attended the renewal meeting.

"From Among US, Leaders Will Emerge"

“Who is Wilfred Mhanda," asked Didymus Mutasa of the national hero who ensured that our war of national liberation continued to be prosecuted, even when the national command had been paralysed in power struggle and tribal war.

By all accounts Mutasa was in the comfort of party houses in Maputo while Mhanda (aka Dzinashe Machingu) was not only commanding the fighting, but also carrying out the political leadership work, including the negotiating for the hosting of Zanla in Mozambique.

But the history of the liberation struggle, according to Robert Mugabe's Zanu (PF) has been conveniently written to glorify those in power. Maybe that explains why, despite wealth, old age and illness they cannot afford to get out of power - because the true history might be written.

Zimbabwe Grand Coalition: Elitist Plot to Dupe Donors


Over the past few weeks the MDC led by Professor Welshman Ncube and an outfit led by Hon. Tendai Biti have been talking glowingly about their “Grand” Coalition. Some of their officials have even described it as a “grand coalition of democrats”.

The following questions have to be answered: Is this coalition indeed grand? Is it indeed a coalition of democrats? Is it capable of prosecuting the democratic struggle in Zimbabwe?

What is needed in Zimbabwe is change; for Zimbabweans to be delivered from an oppressive regime and the debilitating poverty, misery and oppression that the Zanu (PF) regime has condemned them to.

MDC-T Cabinet Damns Zanu (PF) On Economy

MashakadaTThe govenment's Indigenisation policy flip-flops are mere posturing by a corrupt Zanu (PF) which will not improve the investment climate in Zimbabwe. They have failed to answer whether or not the 51% threshold is still in force or not and the so called Production Sharing Model (PSM) implies a 100% indigenisation threshold, which is even worse than the current 51%.

So instead of easing the Indigenisation and Economic Empowerment policy, the Zanu (PF) government is actually further tightening the screws. If the 51% threshold was a foot brake to investment, the PSM is actually a hand brake and the last nail in the coffin of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in that it doesn't inspire investor confidence, says the MDC-T acting secretary general Tapiwa Mashakada.

Climb-Down Or Climb-Up, Zimbabwe Is Not Sellable

heraldbattle1The substance of the Sunday Mail's now controversial "Climb-Down" article is probably not as important as the fact that The Sunday Mail dared to write that the government had climbed down! President Robert Mugabe's government climbing down!?

The Editor obviously needs re-education - a minimum of 5 years on the ambulance-chasing desk until he learns the culture. It was so poor that The Herald Editor thought he deserved a public rebuke with an equally controversial headline "Sunday Mail Misfired!"
