Fireworks erupt in politburo FRESH cracks have emerged in Zanu PF over the use of state media to sow divisions, the poorly articulated indigenisation programme blamed for scaring away investors, and jockeying for positions ahead of the party’s much-anticipated congress in December. Faith Zaba/ Elias Mambo The recent starkly contrasting policy positions on indigenisation between the minister of indigenisation Francis Nhema, and that of Information Jonathan Moyo, which played out in the media, highlight the problem. The clashes resulted in fireworks at the Zanu PF politburo meeting on Wednesday where the indigenisation policy was clarified and a livid President Robert Mugabe and members of Vice-President Joice Mujuru’s faction railed against Moyo for abusing the state media, which they said was causing divisions within the party. There is a growing feeling in Zanu PF that the state media, managed by Moyo, was being used to push a factional agenda. According to politburo insiders, party heavyweights alig ...
President Mugabe warns Vice-President Mujuru, “No vacancy for presidency” A PEEVED President Robert Mugabe sent a senior politburo member to “advise” Vice-President Joice Mujuru that there is no vacancy for the Zanu- PF presidency as the succession race intensifies ahead of Zanu-PF’s December congress, the Zimbabwe Independent reported. Highly-placed Zanu-PF officials said Mugabe took the pre-emptive action because he was exasperated by Mujuru who is said to be eyeing the top post in the event that Mugabe resigns or is incapacitated. “The President (Mugabe) sent a confidant to tell Mujuru that he is still in charge and she should not campaign for the presidency because he (Mugabe) has no intention of relinquishing the presidency at congress,” said one party official, adding: “She was advised that there is no vacancy for the top post and therefore she should campaign for the vice-presidency or any other post.” The sources further claimed that although Mujuru appeared to heed the message, ...

WAR OVER ZANU PF NATIONAL CHAIRMAN POST A STORM is brewing in Zanu PF ahead of the party’s elective congress in December, with ex-PF Zapu members furious over moves by their counterparts who were in old Zanu PF before the 1987 Unity Accord — which united the two parties as — to challenge them for the national chairperson’s post. The national chairship and one of the two posts for vice-president have been held by former Zapu members since the Unity Accord was signed, although Zanu PF members maintain there was no agreement that the chair should be solely for ex-Zapu officials. Zanu PF secretary for administration Didymus Mutasa is reportedly eyeing the post and has been canvassing for support ahead of the congress while Justice Minister Emmerson Mnangagwa, believed to lead one of the factions in Zanu PF, is also said to be weighing up his options as he is eager to get into the presidium to bolster his presidential ambitions. Zanu PF spokesman Rugare Gumbo told the Zimbabwe Independent this week tha ...
Perhaps when we get closer to the election, i will have some(one) in mind.'' This has been interpreted as Mugabe's closest hint that he intends to last only the next 4 yrs, and then retire . He would be 94 by then, and there is little chance he could seek to rule Zimbabwe for further 5 yrs . At the 34th Independence celebrations , Mugabe struggled with his eyesight while delivering his speech, with the right almost shut as he repeatedly use his hand to clear it . He has often been caught oncamera sleeping @ international forums n is no longer as visible in the public as in the past . Several times the latest being in January, he has been rumoured to be dead, but he has emerged to laugh at the rumours and declare himself fit as a fiddle . Social media has been abuzz about Mugabe's health since his image appeared in the press on Friday . Some went to extremes wishing him dead, which is very un African .

Contradictions Very Puzzling President Robert Mugabe (90) on Friday gave the slightest hint that neither his deputy Joice Mujuru nor long-time confidant Emmerson Mnangagwa will succeed him when he calls it quits or even in the unlikely event of a disaster. Mugabe told his Gushungo clan elders that Zanu PF members would choose his successor. But what he did not tell his clan members is that there is a hierarchy in the ruling party with a clear structure such that Mujuru or anyone in the Presidency, including national chairman Simon Khaya Moyo and administration secretary Didymus Mutasa, can still assume the mettle. In the absence of a new Vice-President, there is no doubt that Mujuru should seamlessly assume leadership. In the story by our sister paper Standard, one wondered why Mugabe would throw tantrums against the so-called factions when he has in the past dismissed them as a figment of those against his party? Why is he trying to block his most favoured juniors? Is Mugabe trying to groom his wife Firs ...
ZIMBABWE--AFRiCA CONFIDENTIAl: The latest crisis at Air Zimbabwe is mainly about politics, particularly the battle between the two factions competing for the successionThe factions supporting the two main contenders to succeed President Robert MugabeJoice Mujuru and Emmerson Mnangagwa – are fighting for control of the state airline, compounding its problems of poor service and corporate debts. The new Transport Minister Obert Mpofu, the former Mines Minister who is a close ally of Mnangagwa, has been investigating several of the airline’s leasing contracts that he deems ruinously over-priced. Last month, Mpofu terminated the lease of its Embraer aircraft but remains stuck with a more costly Airbus deal involving the Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO). Air Zimbabwe has been paying at least US$600,000 monthly for the lease of the 50-seater Embraer ERJ 145 LR jet and two Airbus A320s, both currently grounded.R
Combative Zanu-PF hardliner and Justice Minister, Emmerson Mnangagwa, has allegedly turned his rural mansion in Zvishavane, into a campaign hub, strategically managing his final assault of grabing power in President Robert Mugabe’s soon to be over succession wrestling, The Telescope News reported. Zvishavane Emmerson Mnangagwa Mnangagwa, according to a senior Zanu-PF politburo member from his faction, who has also been recently promoted into cabinet, is leaving nothing to chance, in his political war of attrition with VP Mujuru, over the hot seat to replace Mugabe at State House. Hideout shout-out The Justice Minister’s presidential-like mansion, has just been completed by a Chinese firm to the tune of millions of dollars, from his bottomless pocket, whose wealth is believed to be from his sophisticated mining ventures with many foreign governments and businessmen. Mnangagwa’s villa, which is one of many dotted around the country, is located in Dambudzo near Lundi Primary school, just outside Zvisha ...
ZANU PF factionalism is in full focus following a report that Justice Minister, Emmerson Mnangagwa, is allegedly in a secret deal with the security service chiefs to take over as the leader of the country after President Robert Mugabe. Emmerson Mnangagwa The report, which analysts see as a plant by a faction led by Mnangagwa, appeared in the Telescope News last Friday. The report claimed that the deal was cut between the army and other security service chiefs in January following a ‘gentlemen’s agreement’ between Mugabe and Mnangagwa. The report quotes an unnamed senior army officer ‘working close with the Chief of Staff in Harare’ confirming the development. According to the official, Mnangagwa was ‘secretly sworn in’ at an ‘intensive meeting’ held at Mugabe’s residence. Mugabe is reported to have consented to the deal. The report seeks to give the impression that the alleged deal had already put paid to Vice President Joice Mujuru’s hopes of becoming the next leader. Mugabe, the re ...
Zimuto of Masvingo said according to African culture, women should be under men and Vice-President Joice Mujuru should be content with her current position. Mujuru is believed to be involved in a tug of war with Justice Minister Emmerson Mnangagwa to succeed President Robert Mugabe although they both publicly deny harbouring ambitions of succeeding the veteran ruler. Zimuto was the first person to invade a farm belonging to a white commercial farmer in 2000. He told journalists that a man, whether it be Mnangagwa or any other, should occupy the country’s top post, and not a woman. “It will be against our culture for a woman to be president. We are conservative Zimbabweans. We are not like Western countries where the queen or a female president may rule,” Zimuto said. “It will be taboo and we will not accept it. A woman’s place is under the man and we are satisfied with her (Mujuru) current position as vice-president. “In fact, that post should be reserved for women while the presidency should ...

Robert Mugabe has once again topped Zimbabwe's 'naughty list' this Christmas, after a year epitomised by the flawed elections, the widely disputed results and the ongoing deterioration of the country. ZANU PF's top chefs are also all included on the list, leaked to SW Radio Africa from trusted sources at the North Pole. While millions of people around the world have started tracking Santa's global journey, Zimbabwe's fat cats will not be hearing any sleigh bells overhead this Christmas Eve. This includes Mugabe and his wife Grace, Vice-President Joice Mujuru and other party seniors like Emmerson Mnangagwa, Augustine Chihuri, Didymus Mutasa, Obert Mpofu, Patrick Chinamasa and Ignatius Chombo. They are those accused of bringing suffering to Zimbabwe this year by rigging the elections, damaging the economy and preventing any meaningful change in the country. Santa's list has also questioned whose pockets have been fattened as a result of millions of dollars in diamond revenues, meant to help Zimbabwe. Meanwh ...
22 DECEMBER 1987 ZIMBABWE UNITY ACCORD - PEACE WITHOUT RECONCILIATION Zimbabwe, under the oppressive rule of despot Robert Mugabe, has been a friend of the Kim family since 1980 and a long term bloody alliance with North Korea has always been in existence. Much of it has to do with his trip to North Korea in 1980 and his admiration for Juche ideology and unsurprisingly so, the efforts to emulate the state and the personality cult of North Korean leaders. Mugabe argues that “North Korea has always been an ally of Zimbabwe since the liberation struggle days against white minority rule,” In October 1980 Mugabe signed an agreement with the North Korean leadership that stipulated that 106 North Korean military advisors would train and equip 3,500 soldiers loyal to Zanu PF, because he was "having trouble with internal malcontents.” The North Korean advisors arrived in Harare in August 1981 to train Fifth Brigade which answered to only Mugabe, and thus were above the law. The Fifth Brigade murdered 20,000 ...
Open letter to MDC T leadership Leadership renewal most realistic option The test of the MDC’s true strength will be whether it is able to march on without its main ideologue and founder, Morgan Tsvangirai. Indeed, since its formation, Tsvangirai’s name has been synonymous with the MDC, and his bravery in the face of a true political test must never be underestimated. Nevertheless, ousting this once gargantuan politician, who has led the most successful opposition group in Zimbabwe, will be the first step in the right direction. Tsvangirai himself has already indicated that he has no intention of stepping down any time soon. Indeed, he told a press conference in Harare that he has the full backing of his party. His supporters in the party have also argued that he needs to finish the job that he started. However, for the good of the party, Tsvangirai needs to step down – retreating to moral arguments to support his continued candidature will only worsen the situation. If Tsvangirai remains as MDC lea ...

I have gone through all the newspapers about the scandal called "Zvayi-gate." The scandal is characterized as follows: a shadow political hand (PH1) causes the publication of an editorialized news article and the editor, Caesar Zvayi, complied because it was a career threatening instruction to defy in having the story written and published. The article had a hallmark of a political hand as usual with many such stories against the opposition, the West or anyone disliked by ZANU PF, especially insulting remarks and anonymous sources. Is this not the newspaper's daily diet? After the publication of the story, for obvious reasons, Gideon Gono went into an overdrive by going berserk to clear himself. Another political hand (PH2) (Prof. Jonathan Moyo) descended heavily on the editor of the newspaper leading him to apologise on ZTV and issue a statement for all newspapers, which they have gleefully published to please Gono. Prof. Moyo needs to realise the dynamics behind this issue. In defending Gono, the minist ...
The MDC-T PARTY, which lost the July 31 election to Zanu (PF), says it will reclaim the Kwekwe Central seat. Former MP Blessing Chebundo said supporters felt cheated in the last polls were now determined to work hard to turn around their fortunes. Chubendo's optimism follows a recent High Court order for a re-run of the election in the constituency. He had challenged the loss, citing a host of irregularities in the July poll in the area. At the time, Zanu (PF)’s Masango Matambanadzo was declared the winner, in a result that became the first for his party since the formation of the MDC-T in 1999. Chebundo defeated Zanu (PF) Legal Affairs secretary Emmerson Mnangagwa twice in the constituency. Mnangagwa had to relocate to Chirumanzu-Zibagwe in 2008 to avoid further humiliation in the mining town. However, in the last elections, Matambanadzo won in unclear circumstances, forcing Chebundo to lodge a legal challenge which nullified the result. Represented by lawyer Nomore Hlabano, Chebundo cited irregulariti ...
10 REASONS WHY TSVANGIRAI MUST BE SACKED ***this article was first published by the website New Zimbabwe.com, the views contained in this article do not belong to Mugrade Seven* By WISDOM KATUNGU I HAVE great respect for Morgan Tsvangirai because of the courage, bravery and determination that he has shown since the formation of the MDC in 1999. At a time when it was unthinkable and daunting to challenge the mighty Robert Mugabe in a presidential election, he boldly rose to the occasion and he can only count himself unlucky that he has failed to dethrone the veteran Zanu PF leader. Since he declared his ambition to lead Zimbabwe fourteen years ago, Tsvangirai has been arrested many a time; faced a show treason trial; survived assassination attempts; his close associates and supporters were murdered. He has also lost a good number of his loved ones because of his political ambitions. He has been tortured several times at the hands of the police and has been humiliated by the public media. Despite all this, ...
Pay negotiations must be fruitful: President Negotiations for a salary increment with civil servants must yield positive results because Government is committed to improving its workers’ welfare, President Mugabe said yesterday. He was speaking after commissioning 11 pilots who completed an Air Force of Zimbabwe Number 66 Pilot Training Course at Thornhill Air Force Base in Gweru. His remarks come after civil service unions, that had stalled salary increment negotiations by wrangling over representation, yesterday said they had agreed on the composition of their negotiating team and were ready to engage Government in the National Joint Negotiating Council. The Head of State and Government and Commander-in-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces said Government was aware of the challenges facing its workers. “I am also aware of the need to improve conditions of service for the Defence Forces and those of the entire civil service,” said President Mugabe. “Negotiations have been opened between Governmen ...
Cashing out BANKS are brittle institutions. Their business is making loans that cannot be recalled quickly from deposits that can vanish in a trice. And banking is a particularly precarious calling in Zimbabwe, where the US dollar has been the main currency since 2009. Depositors typically dip into savings at Christmas, but not all banks have been able to meet the extra demand for dollars. A few have put a daily cap on withdrawals. Queues are common. Savers are testy. Yesterday a security guard at a bank branch in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe’s second city, reportedly used teargas to quell angry depositors. Zimbabwe counts on a continuous flow of dollars from abroad to keep its economy ticking over. Perhaps because of this reliance, the ruling Zanu-PF party, which won a landslide victory at disputed elections in July, has seemed to be less noisily committed to its indigenisation policy, which requires foreign and white-owned companies to hand over at least 51% of their business to black locals. When President Rob ...
The President and First Secretary of Zanu Pf, who happens to be none other than our beloved Zimbabwe’s President Robert Gabriel Mugabe, made speeches at his party’s congress that left no doubt that he is no longer in control of the party. Mugabe is now powerless over the strong factions in the party. It is the first time that Mugabe has robustly reproached the factions and their impact on the party. But then, it appears as if it is now too late as the President’s Chinhoyi statements show that he has long lost control over the party. His words painted a party that is best chaotic, undisciplined, corrupt and infected with fighting rivals. There is a sense of restlessness, everyone suspicious of the other, not knowing to which faction their friends belong to, unaware who is betraying who. Trust is anathema. They all speak in hushed tones and have enhanced their personal security. The Zanu household is so divided no one says ‘good morning’ to the other in case you are suspected to support Baba Ngwen ...
Party members to choose successor: Mugabe. THE country’s 89-year-old President Robert Mugabe said on Friday members of his party would choose his eventual replacement, but gave no timeline despite a mounting succession battle triggered by long-denied reports he is suffering from cancer. Mugabe, in power since the former white-ruled Rhodesia's independence from Britain in 1980, was re-elected in a July 31 vote that was rejected by his rivals as fraudulent, but largely endorsed by African observers as free and credible. Addressing a ZANU-PF central committee meeting before the party's annual conference, Africa's oldest leader denounced the increased jockeying between party factions to succeed him. Without naming any of the heads of the factions, Mugabe said the party's leadership would be determined by ordinary members at a congress. "So, let us hear our people. They, after all, will in the end decide on who will be needed and who will not. Every one of them matters," he said. "We cannot build a united pa ...

Colleagues mourn Cde Gwanzura: Colleagues and relatives of the late Cde Eric Gwanzura have extolled the late national hero as a generous and brave man who worked for his country throughout his life. Defence Minister, Emmerson Mnangagwa said the late veteran nationalist and businessman was a consistent, courageous and forthright freedom fighter, who was involved in all phases of the country’s liberation struggle. Cde Mnangagwa explained that the first time he met Cde Gwanzura was when he had completed military training in China in the 60s, adding that Cde Gwanzura was one of the links who connected the leaders based outside the country with those back home.

Chinhoyi (Zimbabwe) (AFP) - Zimbabwe’s ruling party opens its annual conference Thursday with the twin spectres of the moribund economy and infighting over veteran President Robert Mugabe’s succession casting long shadows. The three-day conference is ZANU-PF's last before its elective congress next year and comes against the backdrop of renewed clashes among contenders to succeed Mugabe,who at 89 is Africa's oldest head of state. "The conference is an opportunity to heal the rift between the main factions in the party and to craft a post-election message," said Rushweat Mukundu, a political analyst with the Zimbabwe Democratic Institute. "There is a lot of despondency and uncertainty over the economy. ZANU-PF is confronted with a huge challenge on the economic front. They will make resolutions on these issues but we should not expect anything major in terms of policy." Divisions over Mugabe's succession cost ZANU-PF the 2008 election when it lost its majority in parliament for the first time since ind ...
ZANU-PF amends poll law. LESS than six months after its victory in the July 31 polls, the ZANU-PF government has come up with an amendment to the Electoral Act.With ZANU-PF firmly in control after garnering over two thirds majority in the last poll, the ruling party is now unrestrained in making laws to suit its own devices. For the first time since 2007, ZANU-PF is revising the law that governs the conduct of elections in the country without having to consult its main rivals. Zimbabwe went for the 2008 elections and this year’s polls with a negotiated Electoral Act, even though the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) formations had reservations over a handful of clauses. An amendment to the Electoral Act is one of the Bills in the government’s immediate plans and it has since been sent for printing after which it would be gazetted and brought to Parliament. “Title of Bill: Electoral Amendment Bill; Ministry, Justice; Bill number H.B, 2013; status of Bill — sent to printers 04/12/13,” read the ...
Mugabe's divided house HARARE - Warring factions in President Robert Mugabe’s Zanu PF will try to overcome crippling feuds and plot a more coherent strategy at a conference that opens in Chinhoyi this week, officials said yesterday. However, the party’ failure to agree on the contentious outcome of provincial elections mired by charges of ballot fraud has increased doubts about their ability to overcome the deep divisions, frustrating internal efforts to close ranks and unite the fractured movement. The meeting is provisionally set for Friday and Saturday and will come just after divisive provincial executive elections that saw Vice President Joice Mujuru vanquishing her rival Emmerson Mnangagwa faction, clinching eight of the 10 provinces. Both factions are preparing for a takeover in the 2014 congress, but administration secretary Didymus Mutasa has said Mugabe has a right to seek re-election in the 2018 vote given that a new Constitution gives him a wide berth to run for two, fresh five-year terms. ...
death will be the next major political event in Africa Jeffrey Herbst and Greg Mills say that while the Zanu-PF leader remains in power little is going to change. With the dust slowly settling from the disputed July 2013 Zimbabwe election, attention shifts to what might happen if - indeed, when - Robert Mugabe departs. This is likely the next major political event on the beleaguered southern African country's calendar. It is wishful thinking to believe anything other than economic stagnation if not outright decline face Zimbabweans under continued rule by Mugabe and Zanu-PF. Central to Mugabe's rule has been rent-seeking, patronage and poor governance allowing him to maintain allies despite the economy's collapse. The stabilisation measures introduced by Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) ministers with the advent of the coalition government in 2009 were at best tolerated by Zanu-PF and never enthusiastically endorsed. Now even those reforms may be reversed as Zanu-PF has unfettered control over the gov ...
There is no doubt that Zanu PF has, since July 31 emerged as a party on resurgence, managing to re-establish its traditional post-independence political dominion. Sunday Opinion BY BUTHOLEZWE NYATHI The buoyant Zanu PF government has unveiled the ambitious Zimbabwe Agenda for Sustainable Socio-Economic Transformation (ZimAsset) as a policy document to steer the national development path over the next five years. The positive outlook and charm offensive exhibited by Zanu PF since their electoral victory has in recent weeks been overshadowed by the drama-filled provincial elections. While the elections were a routine Zanu PF constitutional requirement, stakes were however high as alleged rival camps led by Joice Mujuru and Emmerson Mnangagwa sought to control provinces as part of broader succession politics in Zanu PF. So fiercely contested were the provincial elections that senior Zanu PF members engaged in public verbal exchanges as lobbying and counter lobbying for nullification of election results inten ...

Zanu-PF - Politburo to Ratify Poll Results 2 December 2013 , Source: New Zimbabwe ZANUPF's provincial elections, marred by accusations of vote rigging, came to an end Sunday with party chairman Simon Khaya Moyo emphasising all results were subject to ratification by the politburo. Khaya-Moyo told a media briefing that results from Mashonaland West were outstanding without giving reasons for the delay. However the party's secretary for administration Didymus Mutasa who sat for almost an hour with journalists in the boardroom at the party's Harare head office was unimpressed with the delays. He was heard expressing his dismay in a phone conversation with an aide.

ZANU-PF elections: The good, the bad and the ugly Zanu-PF’s provincial elections held at the weekend in the remaining seven provinces were a classic story of the good, the bad and the ugly. The elections also raised serious questions about the concept of internal democracy in the revolutionary party.Zanu-PF national chairman Cde Simon Khaya Moyo yesterday said he would give a review of the process only after reporting to the party’s Politburo. The good thing may be that the elections and the hype and political innuendos around them, which had been described as an “unnecessary distraction” to the party, are over. The initial elections in Manicaland, Mashonaland and Midlands early last month were characterised by massive logistical challenges and reports of vote rigging, among other irregularities. Last weekend’s elections followed more or less the same script, all amid hype about alleged factions and succession race in Zanu-PF. It was widely hypothesised that a win by provincial leaders aligned t ...
Mujuru ‘has presidency in her handbag’ Posted: 01 Dec 2013 10:22 PM PST Vice President Joice Mujuru effectively bagged the support of 9 out of 10 Zanu PF provinces in her long running battle with Justice Minister Emmerson Mnangagwa to take over from President Robert Mugabe at the next elective party congress in December 2014.
I have been following the articles in the private media concerning the factionalism in Zanu PF and I fail to understand how the private media has identified that this politician belongs to which faction, allegedly led by Joyce Mujuru while another belongs to a faction led by Emmerson Mnangagwa. It is common cause that people follow people. The levels of following the people differ. How deep are the differences among Zanu PF leadership? Is it that they have used the tribal card to align politicians, history of working together before and after independence, age, previous disputes perceived and or real, military wing served during the liberation struggle - ZIPRA or ZANLA? Some of the journalists are too embedded in this matter to be educating or entertaining the masses on the developments in Zanu PF as a political party. The risk the nation faces today is to have a media culture that promotes individuals ahead of systems of governance, ideas and visions. Reading through most of the analytical pieces, I am l ...
Vice President Joice Mujuru has taken a firm lead in the race to succeed President Robert Mugabe, after Saturday's no-holds barred special Politburo meeting endorsed results in provincial elections held earlier this month. However, the meeting acknowledged that polls in the Midlands, Manicaland and Mashonaland Central provinces were poorly organized. The elections in the three provinces were won by allies linked to Mujuru, who is fighting a bitter battle with party stalwart Emmerson Mnangagwa to replace Mugabe in the event of his death or retirement. The ZANU PF elections were rocked with chaos following accusations and counter-accusations that the candidates engaged in vote buying and rigging of the polls. In the last week daggers were drawn against ZANU PF administration secretary Didymus Mutasa and party spokesman Rugare Gumbo, as the party's faction led by Mnangagwa accused them of allegedly trying to manipulate the provincial elections to favourably position Mujuru. Mnangagwa's faction went into Satu ...
CHINYENYETU TO NEMBUDZIA ROAD IS NOW COMMONLY REFFERED AS "BHUKA STRIP" -JUSTICE MAYOR WADYAJENA Justice Mayor Wadyajena, the Zanu-PF Member of Parliament for Gokwe Nembudziya has lavished praises on President Robert Mugabe describing him as a great leader. The businessman *** politician has already fitted much into his 32 years and was one of those who came forward to join Zanu-PF candidates' list in the last poll. He was elected at the general election, which is why he was moved to break convention and deliver a maiden speech in Parliament on Tuesday lavishing praise on Mugabe's re-election to a seventh presidential term. Wadyajena, a player in the fuel-distribution business, congratulated the Zanu-PF leader on his successful re-election, praising the 89-year-old's "extraordinary leadership." The youthful MP, said to be linked to the Emmerson Mnangagwa faction, heaped praise on Mugabe's moral authority and wisdom, in comments seen as flattering the president's re-election campaign. "Mr Speaker Sir, I .. ...

Mujuru faction gains more ground November 12, 2013 in News THE Zanu PF faction believed to be led by Vice-President (VP) Joice Mujuru appears to be gaining more ground in Zanu PF’s intricate succession battle. REPORT BY JOHN NYASHANU The VP appeared to be tightening her grip on power following yesterday’s victory by Luke Mushore, believed to belong to her faction, in the Mashonaland Central elections for the provincial chairmanship. Mushore polled 12 905 votes beating former chairman *** Mafios who garnered 12 424 votes to land the party’s top post in the province where Mujuru hails from. Announcing the results at a Press conference in Harare yesterday, Zanu PF national spokesperson Rugare Gumbo called on all party contestants to accept the outcome, amid reports that other losing candidates in the Midlands and Manicaland province where other alleged Mujuru allies Jason Machaya and John Mvundura romped to victory last week were challenging the results. “The party and President (Robert Mugabe) made ...
Mnangagwa lawsuit divides Zanu-PF by Staff reporter 11 November 2013 | 443 Views The $50 million criminal defamation lawsuit filed by the wife of the party's secretary for Legal Affairs Emmerson Mnangagwa against Midlands provincial minister, Auxillia, is widening fissure in Zanu-PF as it emerges the party is divided right in the middle over the litigation perceived a firm confirmation President Robert Mugabe's party is imploding. Sources told Southern Eye there were intense debate, gossip and rumour-mongering in the corridors in Zanu-PF over the merits and demerits of Auxillia's legal action. On Tuesday Auxillia and four other top officials reportedly filed a $50m lawsuit against Machaya after his (Machaya) elections agent wrote a petition to the party to take disciplinary action against the five for electoral fraud. Machaya's chief elections agent in the recent party provincial polls, Douglas Kanengoni, filed a petition accusing Auxillia, Gokwe Kana MP, Owen Ncube, Zhombe MP, Mackenzie Ncube, Douglas Ta ...
Emmerson Mnangagwa vs Joyce Mujuru,who would you go for and why?
An outbreak of public infighting within the ruling ZANU PF has this week exposed how deeply the party is divided in the wake of the recent controversial provincial elections. The latest infighting and acrimony, sparked by events that took place during the internal poll, has suddenly intensified and each day brings its own drama as analysts warn the festering crisis is tearing the party apart. The party has in the last fortnight exhibited something rare - exposure of the problems within its structures - where aggrieved members pulled out of provincial elections, citing electoral fraud and lately have taken each other to court over poll malpractices. Last week it was Monica Mutsvangwa, who blasted the party for presiding over a sham election, and she pulled out of the provincial race against John Mvundura, the eventual winner in Manicaland. This week in the Midlands province, five top party officials, linked to strongman Emmerson Mnangagwa, filed a $50 million criminal defamation lawsuit against newly re-el ...
VICE-PRESIDENT Joice Mujuru pleaded with President Robert Mugabe to postpone the provincial elections in seven out of 10 provinces, citing allegations of vote-buying allegedly by her arch-rival Justice, Parliamentary and Legal Affairs minister Emmerson Mnangagwa’s faction, it has emerged. Brian Chitemba Government sources said Mujuru’s camp, which is in a long-running battle with the Mnangagwa faction to succeed Mugabe, allegedly unearthed a vote-buying spree around the provinces last week, prompting Mujuru to seek an urgent meeting with Mugabe last Thursday. During the emergency meeting, Mujuru is said to have told Mugabe the Mnangagwa faction “was using money to entice voters in the provinces” to influence the outcome of the provincial executive elections which were supposed to be held last Saturday. After Mujuru successfully lobbied Mugabe, it was agreed elections could be held in Manicaland and the Midlands, where chaotic scenes engulfed the internal polls which saw results being delayed by fi ...
ZANU PF ELECTION FALLOUT CONTINUES AS MNAGANGWA LASHES OUT AT CHRIS MUTSVANGWA'S WIFE Justice Minister, Emmerson Mnangagwa says Senator Monica Mutsvangwa did a Tsvangirai when she pulled out of Manicaland province elections. “Those with memories will recall the withdrawal of Morgan Tsvangirai five days before the 2008 Presidential election run-off. Yes, he announced to the whole world that he was withdrawing from the race, but forgot that there were laws governing the conduct of elections. His withdrawal did not stop the elections and some people voted for him. This is what happened with the withdrawal of Cde Mutsvangwa as her name remained on the ballot papers,” he said. In withdrawing, Mutsvangwa cited an uneven playing field, intimidation of her supporters and biased polling officers. However, the elections supervisory team leader and Zanu-PF secretary for Legal Affairs, ordered the elections to go ahead. “We gave everyone a chance to vote as I directed that voting should take place in areas that ...

Sections Videos En francais Zimbabwe: MDC-T Dossier Says JOC Controlled the Elections 7 November 2013 , By Tichaona Sibanda, Source: SW Radio President Robert Mugabe's trusted Joint Operations Command (JOC) took a vice like grip on proceedings of the July 31st elections, which allowed them to snuff the remaining life out of the opposition through rigging. In a 48 page-dossier compiled by the MDC led by ex-Premier Morgan Tsvangirai, the opposition party claims Justice Rita Makarau, chairperson of the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC), had her authority reduced to nothing more than rubber stamping. The JOC deployed Silas Nyanungo, a senior CIO operative to the ZEC headquarters in Harare, where he assumed the role of chief operations officer. This rendered Makarau useless and forced her to toe the ZANU PF line. Covertly Nyanungo set up systems and structures within ZEC that ensured he had total control of all the processes, programmes and decisions, according to the dossier, that has been reportedly hande ...

ZANU-PF in phased approach to polls ZANU-PF has all but admitted that it does not have the capacity to conduct its provincial elections at once in what has dealt a body blow to those within the party who thrived on chaos. The party had hoped to run its provincial polls in a single day but had to go back on its original plan after some provinces indicated that they were not ready for the elections. In areas where the polls have been conducted, the party is now battling divisions among party members, amid allegations of vote rigging, vote buying and the imposition of candidates. This weekend, the party is pressing ahead with provincial elections in Mashonaland Central and Masvingo, two weeks after it held controversial provincial polls in the Midlands and Manicaland provinces.In Masvingo, suspended chairman Lovemore Matuke will not be taking part in the weekend elections. The battle for the Masvingo chairmanship would be between old foes Killion Gwanetsa, the lawmaker for Chiredzi South and Aaron Baloyi, wh ...
Friends thought I would be disappointed by a few ‘prominent’ people who have abandoned opposition political parties to join Zanu at the invitation and ‘so-called’ bribing by Prof Jonathan Moyo. For some reason; no, I am not disappointed at all. I told one editor of an establish paper that these guys make politics tick and make themselves fools as obvious opportunists. He disagreed and said they are destroying the opposition parties!! He found it hard to answer how they were destroying the parties they were abandoning. Is it by criticising them; writing and talking negatively as much as they can about the opposition parties they have abandoned so soon after they themselves had lost an elections as aspiring MPs? Or is it by joining Zanu Pf which massively won the elections without them? I beg to differ with those worried about these defectors. These guys will add no value to Zanu because Zanu beat them in their own contested areas massively! Besides, we have exactly five years to go to the next elec ...
Mugabe can be insulted, rules Zimbabwe court Zimbabwe’s Constitutional Court on Wednesday ruled that the section of the country’s criminal law code that makes it a crime to insult President Robert Mugabe is unconstitutional. This came out in the case in which prominent Zimbabwean artist Owen Maseko challenged his prosecution under that section of the law for paintings he exhibited in 2010. Maseko was charged three years ago for insulting Mugabe and communicating falsehoods prejudicial to the state. He was charged under those sections for paintings he exhibited in Bulawayo about the Gukurahundi killings in Matabeleland in the 1980s. Maseko took his case to the Constitutional Court, which has now ruled that those laws contravene the right to freedom of expression. This was an interim order. This means Justice Minister Emmerson Mnangagwa can come to court to try and change the judge’s minds. But Maseko’s lawyer, Jeremiah Bamu, told Eyewitness News he thinks it’s unlikely this will happen.

Harare - Zimbabwe's Justice Minister said on Thursday his nation will back any calls for African nations that want to break ties with the International Criminal Court at the continentwide African Union summit this weekend in Ethiopia. Justice Minister Emmerson Mnangagwa accused the ICC of humiliating African leaders by targeting them, while letting off Western leaders over conflicts in Iraq and Libya. Zimbabwe wants African countries to "stand up and stamp their authority" against ICC bias, he said. Kenya's president and deputy face allegations for violence that led to the deaths of more than 1 000 people after disputed elections in 2007-08. The 54-member African Union will meet on Friday and through the weekend, and may discuss severing ties with the court, Mnangagwa said. "We have now realized it is only being used against Africans and not against cowboys like George Bush," the former US president and former British prime minister Tony Blair, he said. "In the lifespan of the ICC, it has not been playing ...
Save Zimbabwe National Parks Ranger Maxwell Bowa from being hanged for killing a poacher. On an operation to arrest poachers, senior Zimbabwean game ranger Maxwell Bowa shot and killed suspected poacher Lenna Nkosana in the line of duty, and apparently in self-defence. Zimbabwe is currently facing an unprecedented spike in elephant poaching, and the country's rhino population is down to a fraction of what it once was a few decades ago, when it was home to the largest number of black rhino in Africa. The fact that a senior ranger from the Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority currently engaged in a losing battle in the Poaching War has been sentenced to be hanged smacks of possibly deeper motives at play. Zimbabwe has not carried out any death sentences since 2005 when armed robbers and convicted murderers Edgar Masendeke and Stephen Chidhumo were hanged. How can the Zimbabwe justice system even consider Maxwell Bowa to be on the same level as these two hardened criminals? Please help by sending ...
* Zimbabwe used to have the highest standard of living in Africa * By 2008 only 6% of workers had jobs. *Life expectancy has fallen from sixty years to thirty-six years. * It has the world highest ratio of orphans. * Mugabe is absolutely committed to blaming all Zimbabwe’s ills on the West – particularly it’s ex colonial power, Great Britain. *Mugabe is now (2013) 89 years old.  *Many would argue that Mugabe’s supporters are military rather than political in outlook, and that Zimbabwe is to all effects a military dictatorship. His four closest followers are General Constantine Chiwenga (head of the army); Emmerson Mnangagwa (head of the Joint Operational Command); Gideon Gono (the Reserve Bank chief); and Augustine Chihuri (head of police). * It is easy to ask why Mugabe still has any support at all. In fact he still has an almost “messianic reputation” as a liberation leader. In 1963 he was jailed in Rhodesia for 11 years, for subversion. After release he fled to Mozambique, and joined the g ...
Jonathan Moyo IS THE MAN WHO MADE US WIN ELECTIONS - MUGABE President Robert Mugabe has credited Information, Media and Broadcasting Services minister Jonathan Moyo for masterminding Zanu PF’s landslide victory in the July 31 elections which the opposition alleges was achieved through systematic rigging. This represents a remarkable transformation for Moyo who, in 2009 as an independent MP after being expelled from Zanu PF for allegedly plotting Mugabe’s ouster, wrote that under Mugabe’s rule the economy had melted and Mugabe was “now too old, too tired. Mugabe now lacks the vision, stature and energy to effectively run the country, let alone his party.” According to politburo minutes seen by the Zimbabwe Independent, Mugabe told his lieutenants during a meeting in August that Moyo crafted a brilliant election manifesto which addressed critical issues affecting the majority of Zimbabweans. Zanu PF, in its manifesto, said it would create 2, 265 million jobs in the next five years as part of wider ...
6 12 0 Zim criticised for backing Africa’s withdrawal from ICC Posted by Alex Bell on Friday, October 11, 2013 in Corruption, Crime, International Affairs | 1 Comment Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Foreign Minister, Ethiopia By Alex Bell SW Radio Africa 11 October 2013 Zimbabwe is facing criticism for throwing its weight behind pressure for African nations to withdraw from the International Criminal Court (ICC), with human rights groups saying such a move puts the rule of law in Africa in jeopardy. African foreign ministers on Friday gathered in Ethiopia for the start of a two day, special summit, called by the African Union (AU) to discuss the continent’s relationship with the ICC. This weekend’s summit is set to discuss the continued membership of the 34 African countries that have ratified the Rome Statue, the treaty that founded the ICC in 2002. The meeting opened with a scathing attack by Ethiopia’s foreign minister on the Hague based international court, which he accused of treating Africa ...
Soon after Dr Kareke was expelled from RBZ, I had time to discuss about this man with University of Wits Senior Economics lecturer Professor Miracle Ntuli..The woman was in her twenties when She attended UZ together with Kareke..She described Kareke as a distinguished Student at UZ but one who could quickly get angry.In their final fourth year, Munyaradzi Kareke become one of the first Black Students to graduate with a distinction during those days. You feel sympathetic to hear that ZANU PF is still fighting Kareke to this day, they still believe that he commited a crime that is equivalent to murder..One think that l have learnt in our ZANU PF Party is that FACTIONALISM IS THERE AND ITS DEEP-ROOTED..There is one faction that has very educated people who include Patrick Chinamasa,Jonathan Moyo, Kasukuwere,,Mpofu..And there is another faction which is full of good-for-nothing people, who believe that education is not relevant..That later faction has allowed a culture of jealousy, they feel jealousy of tho . ...

Parly thematic committees to be announced next week THE Speaker of the House of Assembly Jacob Mudenda yesterday said Parliament portfolio and thematic committees will be announced by next week. Parliamentary portfolio and thematic committees have not been sitting since the official opening of the Eighth Session of Parliament by President Robert Mugabe last month. Only the Senate and House of Assembly have been sitting since September 24. Mudenda said the delays in setting up thematic and portfolio committees had been necessitated by that political parties had not yet submitted the names of MPs they wanted to second for each committee. “The process of the setting-up of portfolio and thematic committees is ongoing and is now at an advanced stage,” Mudenda said. “By next week, we should be ready to announce them as we are waiting to receive names of MPs to be seconded to those committees from political parties.” Mudenda said the criteria used to second an MP to a committee would be guided by the int ...

Is it not a sign that "oh we are equal now, we are burying our leader and so MDC should also bury theirs". Honestly Morgan Tsvangirai is causing untold suffering to the Chinhoyi rock diesel band. Cant something be done to help these guys from the Tsvangirai ghost. Meanwhile, I urge all young soldiers and policime to start demanding what is rightfully yours.

Zimbabweans should not look beyond the ruling Zanu-PF for social and economic transformation as the two MDC formations are now dead and buried after their drubbing during the July 31 harmonised elections, Zanu-PF secretary for Legal Affairs Cde Emmerson Mnangagwa has said.
"Mr. Speaker Sir, I especially want to congratulate you on a mature, logical, lucid, well-researched and unequivocal acceptance speech wherein you pledged to guide the business of the House in a professional and dispassionate manner without fear or favour. I further commend you for promising to protect freedom of speech in the House, of course, subject to the strict adherence to and respect for the Constitution of Zimbabwe, Standing Orders and any other relevant statute. As you rightly pointed out, ‘while the minority will have their say, the majority will have their way’." - MINISTER OF JUSTICE, LEGAL AND Parliamentary Affairs EMMERSON MNANGAGWA

Wananchi ,until the dramatic and brutal manner that he was removed from office ,President Mbeki s presidency would have been most remembered by three things ,HIV Aids ,Zimbabwe and slow pace of social delivery during his reign. This is rather an unfair media stereotype and sterile definition of the real Mbeki and his achievements. Like all stereotype templates it contains some truth ,but then again ,it also masks the truth. For all his faults ,I think that this is man that deserves gigantic respect for all he did for the struggle against apartheid . His dexterity in stitching a post apartheid solution particularly when he worked under the unassuming genius of the struggle,Oliver Reginald Tambo. It such a pity that like Tony Blair ,it is the end game that defines,his legacy but not his entire unimitable contribution.

Amai Mujuru clearly told my party's Presidential candidate RG Mugabe that she is not prepared to address Star Rallies throughout the country because his supporters in the party where rigged out of the party candidates race by Emmerson Mnangagwa's people.

She also pointed out that the President is not doing anything to protect her from Oppah Muchinguri, who is destroying her support in Manicaland and that Oppah is aiming to challenge her at the Party congress to take her position. She went even to remind the President that she knows that he was Oppah's lover since the liberation struggle until recently and that, the President should act and behave like the leader of everyone to save the party from sinking. This they said should be debated in tomorrow's Politburo meeting and find the way how they can solve it. Amai Mu ...

ZIMBABWE STARTS BUILDING *** ACADEMY INTELLIGENCE UNIT WILL TRACK INTERNET USERS HOSTILE TO GVT The government has started the construction of a $22-million school of intelligence that it will name after President Robert Mugabe. The construction of the college, which was supposed to open in 2007, stalled due to the economic crisis. At the time of the launch Defence Minister Emmerson Mnangagwa said the school aimed to offer training to thwart "Western regime-change agendas". The school, located about 11km outside Harare, is a stone's throw away from the National Defence College, built with a $98-million loan secured from China. The Mail & Guardian could not gain entry to the building, which is under heavy military guard. Public Works Minister Joel Gabuza Gabbuza this week confirmed the construction of the academy, but said his ministry was only a contractor for a project that falls under the ministry of state security, headed by Sydney Sekeramayi.

Mugabe, Tsvangirai to run for Zimbabwe presidency June 28, 2013, 10:56 pm AFP HARARE (AFP) - Zimbabwe's veteran President Robert Mugabe and his long-time rival Morgan Tsvangirai on Friday both threw their hats into the ring to run in the upcoming presidential election. Their candidacies were approved by a court in Harare, although a final date has yet to be confirmed for the elections that will end an uneasy four-year power-sharing arrangement between Mugabe and Tzvangirai. "The people of Zimbabwe are ready for change. We have absolutely no doubt that Morgan Tsvangirai will be the next president of Zimbabwe," said Finance Minister Tendai Biti, who is also Tsvangirai's electoral agent. Tsvangirai has posed the stiffest challenge to Mugabe's 33-year rule of the southern African nation, but failed to win in the last elections in 2008 which were mired in violence. But Mugabe's own election agent, Defence Minister Emmerson Mnangagwa, voiced confidence that his candidate would win. "We as ZANU-PF are very confi ...
Wananji,the nomination court came ,sat and went. Yesterday was a hive of activity as individuals and political parties strove to file their papers on time. There were challenges throughout .Chief among these was the lack of knowledge of the law own the part of presiding officers. Thus in some areas,Redcliffe for instance,all councillors were asked to bring police finger print clearance.Something totally not legal. In other instances there was requirementbof production of original birth certificates and ID cards.A non existent requirement. In some cases ,for instance Mat North,the question of who signs what forms and which profile signatures were required arose.But to the few parties that filed their papers for pre - nomination clearance in terms of Section 38A of the electoral act cap 2:13 ,that should never have been an issue . In other areas ,for instance Bindura the process was made so slow.MP s papers were only processed with an hour before closure of nominations. At the Presidential nomination court ...

Mujuru’s sad exit: the truth must come out What truly caused the death of Retired General Solomon Mujuru remains an issue of important national inquiry. Some of us who are in the know find it difficult to suppress that information and it is high time the truth has to come out. Mujuru Mujuru sought to have peace with his nemesis in the party, Emmerson Mnangagwa, soon before his death. He phoned Mnangagwa to find out whether they could have a meeting to discuss various ways to resolve the succession dilemma in the party as President Robert Mugabe was resisting exit from the throne. Mujuru pointed to Mnangagwa that people were spreading rumours that the two of them were sworn enemies and that they were responsible for dragging the party into extinction. The General requested whether Mnangagwa would agree to a face-to-face meeting to discuss this and he agreed. The two met at Mnangagwa’s Tynwald Farm on the western side of Harare. Mujuru shared with him that the only way to save the party was for both of ...

Food for thought. Scenario 1- I made my own ballot paper and inserted pictures of Joyce Mujuru, Emmerson Mnangagwa, Morgan Tsvangirai, Welshman Ncube, and Job Sikhala. I asked 5 ZANU PF elderly supporters in my village to mark on the preferred candidate. I was shocked that they marked on Morgan Tsvangirai's picture. Scenario 2- I removed pictures of Joyce Mujuru, Mnangagwa, and Job Sikhala and a...dded Robert Gabriel Mugabe to the remaining list of Morgan Tsvangirai and Welshman Ncube. Two (2) out of five (5) ticked on Robert Mugabe and three (3) out of office ticked on Morgan Tsvangirai. [My personal assessment is that ZANU PF will lose if Robert Gabriel Mugabe is not contesting. Vey fun. Try it in your village targeting the elderly and you will be shocked.

This leaves the former ruling party with less than 48 hours to listen to disputes or conduct reruns, as suggested by party activists, following what has been described as one of the most controversial internal selection processes in years. It took the MDC-T almost six weeks to complete its own in-house selection, but ZANU PF thought they would do them in just a day, a move that has left the party sharply divided and in a rush to meet Friday's nomination deadline. Addressing political parties in Harare on Tuesday, ZEC chairperson Rita Makarau said the court would go ahead with the nomination process on 28th June after doubts were raised following an error made by President Robert Mugabe in declaring Thursday ...
Auxilia Mnangagwa wife of Defence Minister Emmerson will represent Zanu PF in the Senate elections in Kwekwe. Raffy Machaya was arressted at Chana after runing amok with ballot boxs. Auxillia used her hand bag to beat up Blackman as elections were going tough
The Zanu pf primaries..of course some quarters are saying the chaos is mainly attributed to the party's unpreparedness despite its call for an early call, however if you check the voter turnout in these primaries it's now clear that it's a deliberate point to prove a point when figures of the actual polls during the harmonised polls will be announced..its not by chance, they will also justify with the figures the yes vote got in their so-called strongholds especially in the rural areas.tichakaro kawiswa bhora risina mweya gore rino..jus sayin

MNANGAGWA URGES SADC TO DEAL WITH RENAMO BANDITS The Minister of Defence, Emmerson Mnangagwa says SADC should step up efforts to thwart plans to destabilise the region by western backed RENAMO bandits in Mozambique. Minister Mnangagwa said this following RENAMO’s attack of Dondo Arms depot last week where six solders were killed while others were injured. Mnangagwa said Zimbabwe and Mozambique are in constant consultation on the development and RENAMO’s return to the bush. Zimbabwe has been helping train the Mozambican army with some 100 officers graduating recently from a military academy in Gweru. ZBC
Oh the deal breaker!! It has been alleged by an MDC parliamentarian that Anjin's mining concession was granted by Defence Minister Emmerson Mnangagwa when the minister of mines was on leave. So it's like this if the head of the house next door is not around Munangagwa can pop in in and okay things. He has got enough experience with all those little buses he has sprouting everywhere. Anjn has paid nothing to the Treasury inclusive of any taxes since it began trading. Now come on you guys we.get.taxed.on the.very few.dollars.we earn and multi million.dollar corporation just do the no paying walk.

Villager sues Mnangagwa A Harare man who claims to have been beaten and injured by soldiers is claiming US$2 500 in damages from Defence Minister Emmerson Mnangagwa. Through his lawyer, Mr Tafadzwa Christmas of Zimbabwe Human Rights NGO Forum, Mr Joseph Gonese claims that on May 28, 2008 on his way home from attending a funeral he was approached by a white Mitsubishi truck. In the papers prepared by his lawyer and filed at the High Court, Mr Gonese claims that he waved for the car to stop after mistaking it for the chief’s official vehicle. “The vehicle stopped. In front there was Colonel Magumise from the Zimbabwe National Army, a retired police officer Makuto, and a third unknown plaintiff. In the back there were six soldiers wearing camouflage uniforms and grey berets. The soldiers started to accuse him (Mr Gonese) of making gestures similar to those of the MDC symbols at their car,” submitted Mr Christmas. Mr Christmas further stated that his client tried to explain that he was waving at the car ...
The people of Chirumhanzu-Zibagwe constituency, if Emmerson Mnangagwa approaches you with monies for projects, bags of maize, or whatever he might use to coerce you into voting for him, please could you kindly accept. This is the only way of reclaiming your wealth that he stole from not only you, but all the Zimbabweans. Today he wants to come back to you pleading for your vote so that you can extend his mandate to loot. You must totally reject that. Attend his rallies, but if he incites violence like what he always does, please stand your ground. When the Election Day comes, you all know where to put your X.
Many of you are asking me whether l am at the SADC Summit. Hey Emmerson Mnangagwa fought hard for my exclusion and others from the President's entourage.

All the hallaballo about the elections by 31 July is just a farce. Don't be confused by charlatans with double speak. My party is not even prepared. In some constituencies, we don't have even aspiring candidates. My party is grappling with its total collapse in seven of the 10 provinces. The rules to govern our primary elections are not even ready and we are hoping to start deliberating on them at next Wednesday's Politburo meeting. But the main challenge we are facing is not about the rules and guidelines for primary elections. It is about my party's impending defeat in all parliamentary seats in Manicaland, Harare, Masvingo, Midlands and the 3 Matabeleland provinces. The intelligence barometer shows that in the Midlands Province, we will only retain some seats in the Gokwes and we will win two in Mberengwa and Emmerson Mnangagwa's Chirumanzu-Zibangwe Constituencies. All others are gone. In Masvingo, my party will get 2 seats in Chiredzi and other 2 in Mwenezi and will lose in Masvingo South of Walter Mz ...
The President is now aware and well briefed about the cartel of diamond thieves who have put in place a stupid team that moves around even beerhalls that they are the who is who in Zimbabwe drinking expensive imported whiskey will a prostitute on the side. Obert ' Dumbuguru' Mpofu and Chris Mutsvangwa have created their team to siphon diamonds and its proceeds into their pockets. They are restless and always on the road to various capitals in the Middle East and Far East Asia, to strike deals that will benefit themselves and not the nation. This team has awkward political ambitions and tells anyone who cares to listen that they are in Emmerson Mnangagwa's team and they are in the process to create wealth. Last night, you witnessed for yourselves, Chris Mutsvangwa froathing by the mouth addressing a rented crowd at our party's Conference Centre in Gweru, pretending that he has any knowledge about diamonds mining, smiling as if he has got the test of a honey drop. That man is greedy that everything and ever ...
General Constantine Guvheya Chiwenga and his thick plotters against the President, which has managed to rope in Emmerson Mnangagwa after they turned down approaches from Jonathan Moyo's group are currently locked in a meeting with the former Ethiopian dictator and strongman Mengistu Haile Mariam at his Gunhill hideout, getting strategies and tactics of how to stage a coup. Chiwenga who all along was having secret meetings with Mengistu who is in political exile in our country after having been overthrown from power by the late Meles Zenawi used to be President Mugabe's security consultant is now working will Guvheya Chiwenga, Mnangagwa and their team to see how they can usurp power. He is the one who gave Chiwenga what the group term a "masterstroke strategy" when he told Chiwenga and his team to implement the strategy of fielding military parliamentary candidates during the forthcoming elections. Mengistu has assumed a very important and influential role to the group's plans to gain political power. He h ...
Good Zimbabweans, Didymus Mutasa's power hunger has driven him bongus. He is leaving no one for a fight. At our Politburo meeting which ran late on Friday, he was heavily pushing for Emmerson Mnangagwa's expulsion from the party. He if bouyed by his success to get Mike Madiro suspended from the party. He is now targeting Mnangagwa and Oppah Muchinguri to be suspended from the party for being factionalists to pave his way to become the other Vice President of the party if he succeeds to poison President Mugabe to death. Mutasa has planned to spray sulphric poison to Mugabe's file which will poison him through breath during the politburo meetings as he is the Secretary for Administration and keeps all the files for Politburo members. He has strategically positioned himself to be one of the two Deputy Presidents with Simon Khaya Moyo to Amai Mujuru. If he fails to get them suspended and then fired he will try his poisoning strategy to them, Mnangagwa and Oppah. Tatenda Asijiki!; Yimi Baba Jukwa

Under-fire Reserve Bank governor Gideon Gono gave 89 beasts to Mugabe as a birthday present HARARE, ZIMBABWE - A SENIOR Zanu PF officials, politicians, the corporate world and government ministries yesterday fell over each other to congratulate President Robert Mugabe on his 89th birthday by flighting expensive advertisements in the State media. The elaborate adverts were flighted despite persistent reports that the government is broke. Among those who went an extra mile to praise Mugabe were the children of freedom fighters who walked 89 kms from Harare to Bindura in his honour. The Zanu PF Youth League had urged all the youths to dedicate 89 minutes yesterday to do any kind of social work in honour of Mugabe. Under-fire Reserve Bank governor Gideon Gono pledged 89 beasts to the veteran leader. The Ministry of Defence headed by Emmerson Mnangagwa weighed in saying: “We pray that this birthday brings with it renewed vigour and resilience in your leadership for the development and prosperity of our mothe ...
Youths demand larger stake in politics February 1, 2013 in Politics “I HAD always been committed to the armed struggle, and moreover, as the leader of the youth, I was the obvious choice. For the youths are, after all, the lifeblood of the army: it is the young who do the fighting.” Report by Elias Mambo These were the words of the late Zanu PF firebrand Edgar Tekere in his book A Lifetime of Struggle, capturing the role of the youths in national politics. Tekere spent his youth in detention and was imprisoned for 10 years until his release in December 1974, together with President Robert Mugabe, Enos Nkala and the late veterans Ndabaningi Sithole, Maurice Nyagumbo and Morton Malianga. The youths have been at the forefront of political change in the country since the colonial era and have radically changed the face of national liberation movements in most African countries. Likewise, Nelson Mandela, Emmerson Mnangagwa, the late John Chilembwe, Kenneth Kaunda and Mahatma Gandhi assumed leadership posit ...

Army backs Kasukuwere December 15, 2012 in New Day, Politics DEFENCE minister Emmerson Mnangagwa yesterday said the army is backing Zanu PF’s controversial empowerment programme being spearheaded by Indigenisation minister Saviour Kasukuwere. REPORT BY BERNARD MPOFU CHIEF BUSINESS REPORTER Addressing delegates at the signing ceremony of the terms of agreement for an empowerment plan between platinum miner Mimosa Mining Company and government, a tough-talking Mnangagwa pledged to support the policy which compels foreign-owned companies to cede 51% of their shareholding to locals. Mimosa is a joint venture between Australia Stock Exchange-listed Aquarius Platinum and Impala Platinum of South Africa. Mnangagwa’s remarks come barely a week after his Zanu PF party resolved to step up the empowerment crusade ahead of watershed elections slated for next year. “You may be wondering what the Minister of Defence is doing here,” he said. “Firstly, I hail from Zvishavane and those who doubt Cde Kasukuwere n ...

Another possible succession scenario in the event of President Mugabe's incapacitation or retirement could be Minister of Defence and ZANU PF Secretary for Legal Affairs and Veteran of the Liberation Struggle Emmerson Mnangagwa and ZANU PF Politburo Member, former Minister of Information and Publicity, MP and Professor Jonathan Moyo becoming running mates with Emmerson Mnangagwa as the Presidential Candidate and Jonathan Moyo as the Vice President--more like American style where there are 2 running mates.

Zimbabwe Mining: No More Room For Foreigners. by nsnbc Zimbabwe Mining: No More Room For Foreigners. Zvamaida Murwira Senior Reporter - The Herald Zimbabwe NO more new mining licences will be granted to foreigners as Government intensifies the Indigenisation and Economic Empowerment policy, President Mugabe has said. The President urged geologists and mining engineers to form consortiums to exploit mineral resources. He said this while addressing a Zanu-PF Women’s League seminar in Darwendale where they were meeting to formulate a plan of action for 2012 and evaluate their activities. The Women’s League, through its leadership, had raised several grievances to the Party’s First Secretary. The President said the indigenisation programme, was more than just the party or Government building its image or asserting its rights. “That’s the lesser part of it. What we should do in a much more massive way is to organise our people, put them together . . . our geologists, mining engineers, let them form c ...

I Thinx we have a BIG PROBLEM The SADC extraordinary summit effectively ended President Robert Mugabe’s plans to hold polls this year without any meaningful reforms. Sources who attended the Sadc summit revealed the meeting was full of fireworks. They said Tanzanian Prime Minister, Mizengo Pinda, told Mugabe to behave like an elder statesman and stop calling for elections this year, warning this would only take Zimbabwe back to the “dark days of 2008”. Pinda did not understand Mugabe’s impatience on holding elections and told him to do it “for the people”, not just himself. Pinda was however continuously interjected by Zambian president, Michael Sata, the only leader to support an election this year. “Sata kept saying ‘Pamberi ne Zanu PF’, interjecting anyone who dared criticise Mugabe,” the source said, adding that at times, the Zanu PF contingent of Emmerson Mnangagwa, Patrick Chinamasa and Nicholas Goche, seemed embarrassed by the chants. Sata said Mugabe had no business discussing ...

Zimbabwe's Mugabe Under Pressure to Diffuse Intra-Party Tensions Shaken by the serious factionalism they say is tearing their party, some senior officials in President Robert Mugabe's ZANU-PF are calling on him to intervene and save the former liberation movement from total collapse. Party spokesman Rugare Gumbo told VOA the party’s supreme decision-making organ, the politburo will next week try to resolve the infighting that has rocked its district coordinating committees in Masvingo, Manicaland, Mashonaland East, Bulawayo, Matebeleland North and South provinces. But ZANU-PF insiders said the politburo's effort could amount to nothing as it is also deeply divided. Sources said the party is now plagued by four factions - one led by Vice President Joyce Mujuru and the other by Defense Minister Emmerson Mnangagwa. Army General Constantine Chiwenga, the sources say, is heading another faction, with Mugabe’s loyalists staying with him. The Chiwenga group enjoys the backing of the powerful Joint Operations ...
