Big issues – Zimbabwe Vigil Diary: 13th June 2015 PDF Print E-mail
Sunday, 14 June 2015 21:30

There are big issues facing leaders at the African Union Summit in Johannesburg’s salubrious Sandton. But the Vigil believes that AU Chair Mugabe is not the person who can deal with them.

 

The theme of the meeting is worthy: ‘Year of Women’s Empowerment and Development towards Africa’s Agenda 2063’. Mugabe will no doubt make some appropriate noises although he is certainly doing his best to prevent a woman taking over from him. But, to be frank, there is a possibility that he may not still be around in 48 years’ time.

 

Women’s empowerment is the public face of the summit. But behind closed doors more immediately troubling problems will be raised – apart from the unexpected legal threat to Sudan’s President al-Bashir. The headline issue is the resurgence of xenophobia in South Africa but in reality this has already been exhausted at the SADC Summit in Harare six weeks ago when President Zuma asked plaintively why the incompetence of Zimbabwe and other sanctimonious neighbours was forcing their peoples to seek El Dorado in South Africa, causing unrest among the natives (see Vigil diary of 2nd May: http://www.zimvigil.co.uk/the-vigil-diary/687-a-feast-of-hypocrisy--zimbabwe-vigil-diary-2nd-may-2015).  

 

The Vigil hopes AU leaders will address the broader question of the global migration crisis. Surely this is something of particular concern to Africa? If the AU is to play any meaningful role, apart from working out what the position of women will be in 2063, it should discuss the implications of this mass exodus and come up with ideas on how they can encourage people to stay at home and develop the continent rather than fleeing to the West.

 

Apart from the refugees from the ferment in the Middle East and Afghanistan / Pakistan, and the steady exodus from impoverished drowning countries like Bangladesh, there are many countries in Africa where the main goal in life is to escape to Europe. These include not only the hellhole of Eritrea but even our biggest nation, Nigeria.

 

The Zimbabwean economist and opposition MP Eddie Cross has been looking at the migration statistics for Zimbabwe. In brief, he says that if the growth trend at independence had continued our population would now number 30 million. The latest census puts in at 13 million. Where are the missing 17 miliion? Mr Cross suggests that some 10 million are essentially victims of the incompetent Zanu PF regime. The other 7 million – half the current population – have simply got up and gone (see: http://www.eddiecross.africanherd.com/ – The collateral damage of poor governance – 06/06/2015).

 

With some half a million desperate people – mainly young men – gathering on the shores of North Africa who are prepared to risk their lives with unscrupulous people smugglers in the hope of getting to Europe, and – closer to us – thousands trying to smuggle themselves clinging to lorries and trains from Calais to Britain, the Vigil thinks that the African Union should ‘make a plan’ to minimize the suffering and look at the costs and benefits of migration.

 

Why, for instance, should Britain’s National Health Service recruit doctors and nurses from the third world, where they are desperately needed? Should not the developed countries at least compensate the countries of origin for the costs of training these recruits? We believe that a dialogue between Africa and Europe on migration is long overdue.

 

In a BBC radio discussion of the issue, an Oxford professorial fellow on third world issues, Paul Collier, said Europe does not have a moral duty to fulfil the dreams of migrants (see: Moral Maze 10/06/2015 – http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b05xh31j).  Maybe not, but the Vigil thinks there are obligations. We have put forward our own suggestions for a way out of this impasse, involving UN protection zones in areas of conflict where migrants could be looked after while their asylum claims are assessed (see Vigil diary of 18th April: http://www.zimvigil.co.uk/the-vigil-diary/683-let-them-drown-zimbabwe-vigil-diary-18th-april-2015).

 

Other points

·       Apart from the low turnout at the by-elections boycotted by the MDC-T, the most notable thing for us at the Vigil was the frank comment made by a relative of the suspended Zanu PF Harare provincial chairman Amos Midzi, whose body was found at his farm last week. The relative said: ‘As you know for long Cde Midzi was more than a political godfather of Harare, he was a revered person. He used to control most land deals and housing co-operatives in the process pocketing good money, but after being kicked out of the party, that became impossible’ (Gamatox, Weevils clash at Midzi funeral – http://www.zimbabwesituation.com/news/gamatox-weevils-clash-at-midzi-funeral/).

·       Prayers were said at the Vigil for the missing human rights activist Itai Dzamara. We were interested to see the following comment by a Zimbabwean foreign affairs official: ‘Our embassies are under a lot of pressure, particularly in South Africa and the UK. There are demonstrations over Dzamara on a daily basis and the situation is bad in Britain because police in that country have given the demonstrators the greenlight to do as they please’ (see: http://nehandaradio.com/2015/06/07/missing-dzamara-haunts-mugabe/). We relayed the comment to a contact in the police. His response was: ‘Do as they please?’  Well within reason. If letting people safely gather in a public place to express (within the confines of legislation) a view is to allow someone to do as they please then regrettably I'll have to plead guilty I suppose. What's the penalty? The Vigil is to hold a protest on 11th July to mark  4 months since Dzamara’s abduction by the CIO.

·       Today at the Vigil we launched our new petition: To the UK Prime Minister: Exiled Zimbabweans, supporters and friends, at the Vigil outside the Zimbabwe Embassy in London, record our disgust at the anti-white rants of Zimbabwe’s illegitimate President Mugabe. We wish to affirm our unwavering support of Zimbabwe’s constitutional requirement for non-racism.’ We have arranged to present the petition to 10 Downing Street at 4 pm on Saturday 27th June. Logistics for the day are to be discussed at the Zimbabwe Action Forum after the Vigil next Saturday.

·       We were joined by members of our sister organization the Swaziland Vigil who had earlier managed to confront the Swaziland High Commissioner on her way to the Trooping the Colour ceremony, demanding to know why there was no democracy in Swaziland. We have received an email from the Zimbabwe Youth Forum demanding the release of Swazi human rights activists. We have passed this on to the Swaziland Vigil.

·       We were entertained by the sight of more than a hundred naked cyclists on their annual ride through London. The ride was to demonstrate the vulnerability of cyclists.  It certainly demonstrated the necessity of clothes.

·       Thanks to those who arrived early to help start the Vigil: Charity Jere, Epiphania Phiri, Nobukhosi Moyo, Kudzai Mujawo, Fungayi Mabhunu, Mary Muteyerwa, David Kadzutu and Peter Sidindi. Hats off to Kudzai who caught the coach in Middlesbrough at 11.30 on Friday night arriving in London at 5 am. She spent Saturday afternoon at the Vigil and was to catch her coach at midnight and would arrive back in Middlesbrough at 5.30 am.

Sleeping on the job – Zimbabwe Vigil Diary: 6th June 2015 PDF Print E-mail
Sunday, 14 June 2015 14:57

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/article-487526/John-Simpson-fears-bikini-clad-newsreaders.html

 

All Zimbabweans will be pleased that the veteran BBC foreign correspondent John Simpson thinks of Zimbabwe as ‘intensely beautiful, calm and welcoming’.

 

In an article in the British Daily Telegraph, Mr Simpson says he hasn’t visited Zimbabwe for 6 years because he has been banned by the Harare regime but, although its troubles aren’t over, ‘it’s going through a period of relative political stability’.

 

The Vigil thinks Mr Simpson should get out less. Instead of pontificating in the world’s hot spots and tossing off trite pieces for the travel pages he should, as Eternal Windbag of BBC Television News, do some research into what is happening in Zimbabwe before he next writes about it (see: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/luxury/travel/72787/john-simpson-banished-from-beautiful-zimbabwe.html - John Simpson: banished from beautiful Zimbabwe).

 

He could, for instance, Google Zimbabwe and would be surprised to find that Zimbabwe is anything but calm. As for ‘relative political stability’, he will see that the ruling mafia is tearing itself apart, that the unemployed urban masses are facing down the army while starvation again confronts the rural areas – now accused by Second Vice President Mphoko of betraying the revolution by not growing anything on the land seized from commercial farmers (see: http://www.cathybuckle.com/index.php?id=184 - Practiced Hawks or Silenced Prey).

 

The ‘liberator of Kabul’, BBC oracle Simpleton might even come across an article in the latest edition of the American ‘Foreign Policy’ magazine co-authored by Jeffrey Smith of the Robert F Kennedy Centre for Human Rights and Todd Moss of Global Development (Ominous warning signs resurface in Zimbabwe – http://foreignpolicy.com/2015/06/03/ominous-warning-signs-resurface-in-zimbabwe/?wp_login_redirect=0).

 

They say: ‘Over the course of the past few months, we have witnessed an ominous series of warning signs: bitter political infighting within the country’s ruling party, the worsening of already deplorable economic conditions, the abduction and disappearance of a prominent human rights activist, and a surge of inflammatory rhetoric and political violence.’

 

They continue: ‘The latest developments in Zimbabwe come at a time when the country’s economy is again collapsing and the political elite are tearing themselves apart in a battle for succession. Monitors of mass atrocity risk typically watch for ethnic exclusion, hate speech, and indicators of political and economic stress. The greatest indicator of a country’s atrocity risk is whether it has suffered from similar events in the past. All of these factors are currently, and ominously, present in Zimbabwe.’

 

So ’calm’ and ‘relative political stability’ don’t immediately spring to mind. Perhaps Mr Simpleton is asleep like President Mugabe, wandering the world like the Flying Dutchman, treated in Nigeria a few days ago as a geriatric imbecile even before demonstrating the reality of this by snoring his way through President Buhari’s inauguration (see:

http://saharareporters.com/2015/06/02/robert-mugabe-taking-his-legendary-daily-nap-during-buharis-inauguration-abuja and http://www.newzimbabwe.com/news-22882-Mugabe+humilliated+in+Nigeria/news.aspx).

 

 

 

Other points

·       A meeting of the Zimbabwe Action Forum after the Vigil agreed to write to Prime Minister David Cameron disowning Mugabe’s anti-white comments at a recent visit to the headquarters of the Southern African Development Community in Botswana. Mugabe, who is not only the SADC chair but the African Union chair as well, speaking of the latest outbreak of xenophobic violence in South Africa said Africans should direct their anger at whites rather than other blacks (see Vigil diary of 23rd May: http://www.zimvigil.co.uk/the-vigil-diary/691-mugabes-poison-zimbabwe-vigil-diary-23rd-may-2015). The meeting felt that Mugabe’s racist tirade did not represent the views of the Zimbabwean people and were an embarrassment to Zimbabweans forced by Mugabe’s misrule to seek the hospitality of other countries. The meeting decided to run the following petition at the Vigil: ‘Exiled Zimbabweans, supporters and friends, at the Vigil outside the Zimbabwe Embassy in London, record our disgust at the anti-white rants of Zimbabwe’s illegitimate President Mugabe. We wish to affirm our unwavering support of Zimbabwe’s constitutional requirement for non-racism.’ We are planning to present our letter and petition to 10 Downing Street on Saturday 27th June.

·       The Forum also resolved to hold a protest outside the Embassy on Saturday 11th July to mark 4 months since the abduction of the human rights campaigner Itai Dzamara by the Central Intelligence Organisation. The Vigil does not accept the regime’s claim that he abducted himself.

·       Thanks to Eunice Mucherechedzo, Muchineripi (Ebson) Chigwedere, Deborah Harry, Esther Nyambi, Nobukhosi Moyo, Roda Majoni, Sukoluhle Sibanda and Fungayi Mabhunu for arriving early to help set up. Thanks also to Deborah and Epiphania Phiri for selling drinks to raise funds for the Vigil and to Elton Mzezewa for his gift to the Vigil of 3 packs of printer / copier paper.

Bullet brain – Zimbabwe Vigil Diary: 30th May 2015 PDF Print E-mail

After 35 years of Mugabe, Zimbabweans will not be surprised at Sepp Blatter still clinging on to office as president of FIFA. He is a soul mate of Mugabe’s in corruption and manipulation.

 

One of Mugabe’s most devoted disciples is Transport and Infrastructural Development minister Obert Mpofu. He has not had the opportunity to sell the world cup to a desert country with little history of football. But his announcement that the government is planning to bring in bullet trains shows a similar level of delusion.

 

Responding to a question in parliament about what the government was doing to resurrect the moribund railways, Mr Mpofu said that several investors were queuing up to finance the bullet trains.  Even Mr Blatter would hesitate to travel on a Zimbabwean train if he knew that, because of a communications failure, train drivers are reduced to leaving explosive charges on the tracks to alert others to a possible problem.

 

 

Bullet trains would certainly be one answer to the potholes in the roads but the Vigil doubts that Mpofu will be able to catapult Zimbabwe railways into the front rank of international transport systems. We fear his vision will end up much like Zambia’s space project a few years ago, which left the Zambianaut dangling from the branches of a tree.

 

But we see why he is attracted to bullet trains travelling at more that 300 miles per hour. He has a vast commercial empire, including not only mines but also properties in towns ranging from Harare to Bulawayo and the Victoria Falls. A bullet train would enable him to collect his rents and return to headquarters on the same day to consider further looting opportunities. And think how the country would benefit from vendors being able to go from Chitungweza to the Harare Central Business District in a matter of minutes.

 

The Vigil doubts that Mpofu’s delusional project will persuade the US and French business delegations converging on Harare to give him some money. The government would be best advised to hide him away. After all, there is a possibility that President Mugabe will be at home to receive the delegations after his trip to Nigeria – the latest of a never-ending series of foreign jaunts which have seen him clocking up this year more air miles than a Boeing pilot (http://nehandaradio.com/2015/05/10/shock-as-mugabe-blows-50-million/v – Shock as Mugabe blows $50 million).

 

Other points

·       People at the Vigil expressed their disagreement with President Mugabe’s racist comments reported in last week’s diary and it was agreed that the matter would be discussed next week at a meeting of the Zimbabwe Action Forum.

·       On Saturday 6th June there is to be a protest outside Yarlswood Detention Centre about the conditions there. Our supporter Tryness Ncube is speaking at the event. For more information see: http://cityofsanctuary.org/2015/05/14/call-for-city-of-sanctuary-to-join-refugee-women-outside-yarls-wood-on-saturday-6th-june/.
