Zimbabwe Vigil Diary – 30th May 2009 PDF Print E-mail

There was much discussion at the Vigil about the forthcoming visit to the UK of Morgan Tsvangirai. We have been informed by MDC UK that he will be addressing a meeting in Kent as Prime Minister of Zimbabwe and not as leader of the MDC.  He is said to be keen to engage with all Zimbabwean groups in the UK. The date apparently set for the meeting is Saturday, 20th June. We are sorry that some of us will not be able to attend because we have the Vigil on a Saturday. But no doubt many Vigil supporters will go to the Tsvangirai gathering.  

There was some debate at the Vigil about questions they should put to him:
-        Why do MDC people on the ground in Zimbabwe
feel let down?
-       
Why have we not heard any member of the GNU talk about the starving prisoners?
-        How can anyone invest in Zimbabwe
when there is no rule of law?
-        If there is no security, how can Zimbabwe
hope to feed the 80% of its population on food aid?
-       
Why is nothing being done by Parliament to ensure a free press etc?
-        Do you want us to come home? 

The Vigil is not surprised at the situation. Here is an extract from our diary of four months ago (31/01/2009). 

Most people who stopped to talk to us seemed well-informed about developments and no-one was surprised the Vigil was continuing. Certainly, our supporters turned out in unprecedented numbers and few of them had any confidence that the deal would work, given Mugabe’s failure to honour his undertakings in the power-sharing agreement of last September. 

We expect to see Morgan in London soon on a begging mission.  We believe there is a lot of support for extra humanitarian assistance but that he will face an uphill battle to get serious economic aid.  The UK and the US have already made clear that they will wait and see before committing real money. In other words they will have to be satisfied it will not drain into the hands of the Mugabe cronies.  This means the new government will have to prove a willingness to respect the rule of law: we do not believe that Zanu-PF has any idea what that means.   

We accept that there may be secret understandings between the parties that we don’t know about. Indeed, the bewildering policy flip-flops by the MDC would suggest that this is the case. But how do we know? Anyway, when Morgan comes to London we at the Vigil will still be protesting outside the Embassy with our banners ‘No to Mugabe. No to Starvation’ and ‘End Murder, Rape and Torture in Zimbabwe’. If he drops by the Embassy it will be the nearest he has come to us in our 6+ years here.   

We want Morgan to convince us that things have changed.  

It was good to be joined by Kudaushe Matimba (formerly of the Bundu Boys) who spoke to us about the situation of Zimbabwean musicians (he was upbeat).  Thanks to Ruvimbo Claire Maneya and Effie Hicks for their help in setting up the Vigil. 

One of our supporters Brightmore Mundandanda went to sign on at the immigration centre at Croydon for the first time.  He was immediately sent to detention in Dover.  We phoned the Zimbabwe Association for advice and they informed us that several people have been detained but the duration of the detention is short.  Apparently the Home Office does not have enough facilities at Croydon and other immigration centres to process all the Zimbabwean applications for asylum.  If you hear of anyone detained keep an eye on it and, if it stretches beyond a few days, contact the Zimbabwe Association.

The Vigil has been protesting outside the Zimbabwe Embassy every Saturday for going on 7 years – come rain or shine. Today it was shine but, despite the formation of the government of national unity 3 months ago, the Vigil is agreed that we must continue our weekly demonstrations. 

Many passers-by stopped to look at our display of photographs. As always, people were horrified. They saw a pageant portraying a society degenerating into savagery: torture and starvation victims, the grotesque torched bodies of victims of election violence, the bloody faces of victims of farm invasions, the emaciated victims in the holocaust jails – victims of a regime that still shows no sign of respecting the rule of law. 

The Zanu / MDC government says it would like to normalise relations with the donor countries – meaning the West. Who else is there? Thanks China for US $5 million. But can the coalition government deny the reality of what our photo gallery is telling the world every week? 

A large group gathered after the Vigil for the first of our planned monthly forums to discuss the way forward. The overwhelming message was: we will continue until there is real change. Sadly, the general view was pessimistic. Many people thought the MDC should pull out of this government.   

The forum discussed the asylum question. Many were concerned that some people were using the Vigil to get help with asylum claims and once they were successful they disappeared.  Supporters at the meeting reaffirmed that we were about human rights in Zimbabwe. 

Supporters were given explanations from Vigil Co-ordinator Rose Benton about the message of the Vigil and from Luka Phiri of the Vigil management team about the role of our partners, the Zimbabwe Association. Ephraim Tapa, President of Restoration of Human Rights in Zimbabwe, arrived in time from a meeting in Milton Keynes to explain the position of ROHR. 

It was an auspicious start for our monthly meetings.  Thanks to the following who signed the register: Batson Chapata, Chipo Chaya, Fungayi Mabhunu, Moses Kandiyawo, Francesca Toft, Patson Muzuwa, Dumi and Gugu Tutani, Arnold Kuwewa, Luka Musaka, Luka Phiri, Kimpton Samkange, Reginald Gwasira, Addley Nyamutaka, Dennis and Rose Benton, Ephraim Tapa, Judith Makonza, Edward Mhangwa, Judith Mudzamiri, Perkins Matereke, Charles Gasa, Hazvinei Kanyowa, Edwick Office, Stewart Chikwature, Annah Zinhuka, Luke Chinopfukutwa, Ritha Chitapi, Audrey Ntoto, David Kadzutu, Jennifer Hukura, Orpah Mkandhla, Thelma Madzimbamuto, Sarak Makedenge, Ian Pocock, Maxwell Muganhiri, Corsini Togaraseyi, Rugare Chifungo, Chido Brighton Mbwizhu, Tapiwa Chakare, Lynnet Bororwe, Aggrey Gazi, Succeed Mutandwa, Josefina Deka, Molly Mujati, Edna Mdoka, Opah Gwashavanhu, Peter Sidindi – and to others who had to leave for far-flung places before the register was passed round.  

We are planning Vigil forums on a monthly basis. Upstairs at the Theodore Bullfrog is booked for Saturday 27th June and Saturday 25th July. 

Finally three members of the Vigil management team are celebrating their birthdays this week – happy birthday to Chipo Chaya, Luka Phiri and Addley Nyamutaka.

The government of national unity may have reached its first hundred days but the Vigil is resigned to a long struggle until our mission statement is accomplished – to see internationally-monitored free and fair elections.  

With the continuing failure to observe the ‘Global Political Agreement’, members of the Vigil management team discussed our way forward and next Saturday we are to hold our first forum. Many of us gather after the Vigil at the nearby Theodore Bullfrog pub. The plan is that once a month we will book a private room at the Bullfrog where we can discuss ideas and get to know each other better. Every week there are dozens of newcomers at the Vigil and we want to engage them more on what the Vigil is about.   

One of the subjects we’ll be discussing at the forum is the asylum issue. Many people are questioned at asylum hearings about their attendance at the Vigil and we want people to know what to say.  The Vigil is not an asylum organisation: we point people to our partner organisation the Zimbabwe Association. But we write letters for regular attenders, though Vigil Co-ordinator Dumi Tutani stressed ‘The Vigil is really about human rights at home’.    

Another matter we want to clarify is the relationship between the Vigil and our partner organisation Restoration of Human Rights in Zimbabwe, whose activities in Britain are becoming more widespread.   

Other points:
Our luck held out and the threatened rain failed to materialize. We are very vulnerable at present as we are unable to use our tarpaulin because of a temporary invasion of our space by the water board. 
 
Thanks to the extra people who helped look after the two tables this week: Eunita Masolo, Priscilla Kwembeya and Rebecca Rutsito.

On the day when Jacob Zuma was sworn into office the Vigil’s best wishes were for our friends in South Africa. We appreciate their latest visa moves and we trust that under President Zuma’s guidance, South Africa will no longer prop up Mugabe – though we were dismayed that Mugabe was given a standing ovation when he arrived at the inauguration. 

The Vigil notes that the ‘elders’ have urged the West to pour money into Zimbabwe. We have always called for as much humanitarian aid for Zimbabwe as possible but it is unrealistic to expect Western governments to hand over other funds to Zimbabwe without assurance that this money will be used properly. Zimbabwe must demonstrate that it respects the rule of law.   

Take for instance the case of Mr Gandhi Mudzingwa. Some of us know him and we are appalled that this tortured elderly man should be held hostage. We know that big issues are at stake, but is nothing a matter of principle? The Vigil is convinced that there can be no progress until the inclusive government acts on what it agreed.  

The longer this situation drags out the more difficult it will be to get people in the diaspora to go back to Zimbabwe because they will be putting down deep roots in their new countries. In other words Zimbabwe could be a permanent basket case. 

Our partners Restoration of Human Rights in Zimbabwe (ROHR) are issuing regular statements which you can read on their website: www.rohrzimbabwe.org.  It is useful to have a commentary from inside Zimbabwe on current issues. There have been recent pieces on the need for a human rights commission, the state of the prisons, the harassment of human rights activists, the Harare International Festival of the Arts’ exposure of the murderers during last year’s elections and naming and shaming of ‘new farmers’. 

Other points:
·        Vigil team member Luka Phiri addressed a recent weekend meeting of the Trades Union Congress. He spoke about the failures of the new unity government but his main contribution was to help conduct a seminar on immigration and asylum.
·        We were joined by a bagpiper, Ben Buckland nan Cameron, in full regalia who was lifted shoulder high (with his bagpipes) when he accompanied our singing. He also accompanied the national anthem at the end of the Vigil.  We were very surprised to find out he was a relative (third cousin) of Ian Smith, the UDI Prime Minister of Zimbabwe. He was travelling on a bus when he saw us and decided to join in.
·        Many thanks to our extra helpers this week: Reginald Gwasira, Rebecca Rutsito and Patience Madjgara.
·        Our thoughts are with Vigil team member Sue Toft who is recuperating from an eye operation. We wish her a speedy recovery.

A warm, sunny day – a promise of summer – cheered us up despite the frustrating news: no money for Zimbabwe and no real prospect of any while Mugabe remains in charge. Big surprise! 

Three months into the ‘unity’ government and there is still no agreement on crucial matters which should have been resolved at the beginning. People at the Vigil say SADC must intervene and ensure compliance with the global political agreement. 

Finance Minister Tendai Biti says the IMF estimates it will take 45 billion US dollars and five years to restore Zimbabwe to its position in 1995! Unless an immediate start is made even this target could be beyond hope.  

The Vigil believes SADC is responsible for allowing this situation to develop and must now follow up on its guarantee of the agreement. We accept Southern African countries do not have the financial resources to rescue Zimbabwe but recent comments by Zambia’s President Banda suggest they don’t have the understanding either.  Still, let’s see what Zuma will do before we lose all hope. 

Other points:
1.       The Vigil is encouraged that more organizations are taking up the humanitarian question of Zimbabwean jails. We salute Roy Bennett, Deputy Agriculture Minister-designate for calling for an amnesty for minor offenders to relieve congestion. We are also heartened to hear that the Red Cross is going in to Zimbabwean prisons to report on conditions.
2.       A British woman of Caribbean descent expressed amazement when she saw our photographs of conditions in Zimbabwe. She said ‘Mugabe must be mad’ – a further indication that support for Mugabe is fading.
3.       Vigil management member Patson Muzuwa reminded supporters of the ‘Strangers into Citizens’ rally on bank holiday Monday – see for your diary below for details. 
4.       Another reminder to supporters of the Mbira concert at SOAS next week – see below for details.
5.      
We have been contacted by the International Organisation for Migration in London about a programme to help bring back on a short-term basis Zimbabwean health professionals and lecturers to support health institutions and the University Of Zimbabwe College Of Health Sciences.
