Eddie Cross on Zimbabwe: this situation simply cannot go on 1

THIS is a message to those who currently hold power in Zimbabwe. I do not really care about how you got into this position but now that you are there we need to ask you what you are going to use that huge power and influence on? We as a Nation have been patient and forgiving, but what you are asking of us now is just too much and we simply cannot tolerate you continuing on the path that you seem to have chosen. We watched as the ruling elite…

Patrick Zhuwao: Mnangagwa’s persecution of Chief Ndiweni shuts down Bulawayo

Patrick Zhuwao: Mnangagwa’s persecution of Chief Ndiweni shuts down Bulawayo 3

By Patrick Zhuwao Emmerson Mnangagwa’s persecution of Chief Ndiweni inadvertently turned the MDC demonstration scheduled for Bulawayo on Monday 19th August 2019 into an effective shut down of the City of Kings. Patrick Zhuwao Mnangagwa’s Kwekwe based cabal is persecuting the Matabeleland region’s entire leadership across the political divide. Despite assurances in July 2019 by Vice President Mohadi that magistrates would stop summoning chiefs (who are an extension of the judiciary), Chief Nhlanhlayamangwe Felix Ndiweni was jailed for an effective 18 months on Friday 16th August 2019.

Ukutshontshelwa lokhuya kubuye ngenye indlela… kubirwa kuya kwauya neimwe nzira!!! 4

By Chenayi Mutambasere So after a thousand trips around the world and double that number in fake Herald headlines the world has sent a clear message ‘Zimbabwe Isn’t Open For Business’. Chenayi Mutambasere Has it turns out the world needs more than brightly coloured scarfs to part with their money. Even the cereals for breakfast Uxbridge Prof has failed to convince any of his alumni to leave their wallets in Harare. In fact it is now a proven fact (for those that thought ‘it would work’) that you can’t lobby…

Does Brother Mthuli Ncube live in Zimbabwe?

Does Brother Mthuli Ncube live in Zimbabwe? 5

Letter from America with KENNETH MUFUKA Hope is the expectation, against all rational considerations, that desires will be fulfilled miraculously. Ken Mufuka When the “new dispensation” was introduced in Zimbabwe, we hoped against past experience that its chief architect, Brother Professor Mthuli Ncube, PhD, would rise up to the occasion. Hope is that which drives and keeps us going. Related Articles It is now a year since the elections, and Ncube’s approach to what he calls belt-tightening, has moved me an incontrovertible conclusion: that the brother does not live in…

Of demonstrations and government’s response 8

By Takudzwanashe Mundenga We often say that the hour of death cannot be forecast, but when we say this, we picture the time to be placed in an obscure and distant future. There is never a convenient time for any of us to die, but it is indeed a premature death when parents have to mourn and bury their children whose lives have been cut short by the very people supposed to protect them. August 1, 2019, was the first anniversary since the dreaded and heavily-armed Zimbabwean army turned the…

A letter to 15 year old Mthuli 10

On Aug 13, 2019 0 By Chenayi Mutambasere It is very apt that in this week as the young people of Zimbabwe are getting ready to lead the country into protest- a photo of a young Mthuli surfaces. Young Mthuli Ncube Suddenly I am looking at Young Mthuli with a different perspective. It’s hard at times to remember that this cabinet where young once, they too had dreams, hopes and ambitions. Mthuli in fact would have gone to school at a time when teaching was a very lucrative career. Related…

Tau Tawengwa: ZACC should take an interest in the Crime Explosion in Zimbabwe 12

By Tau Tawengwa I took interest when President Emmerson Mnangagwa recently swore in the new and improved Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC). Tau Tawengwa The previous commission was disbanded owing to allegations of rampant corruption. The last ZACC was also criticized for being “toothless” unlike the new Anti-Corruption Commission which has been given the powers to investigate and arrest.
