An extraordinary day which saw Morgan Tsvangirai stomping out of a diaspora assembly in Southwark Cathedral in south London when his speech was booed. 

The Vigil was there to greet his convoy when it arrived. Displaying our banners ‘No to Mugabe, No to Starvation’ and ‘End Murder, Rape and Torture in Zimbabwe’, we danced and drummed and sang ‘To save Zimbabwe, Mugabe must go’.  The Prime Minister could not have failed to see our posters ‘Protect Human Rights Activists’, ‘Restore the Rule of Law’ and ‘End Farm Invasions’. 

Our purpose was to welcome Tsvangirai but also to remind him of what people in the diaspora think needs to be done if Zimbabwe is to win the confidence of donors and investors and be a welcoming place for returning exiles.   

Tsvangirai was given a big ovation when he emerged in the cathedral after prayers and a reading from the Acts of the Apostles by Vigil management team member Gugu Tutani – ‘I have surely seen the mistreatment of my people’. 

But he was jeered by the audience when he called on them to return home.  As far as they were concerned he was telling them to go back to a place with no jobs or rule of law and continuing human rights abuses.  There were chants of ‘Mugabe must go’. The much-heralded meeting ended abruptly because of the challenging atmosphere. (see link: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/8110939.stm). Despite this distraction, the Vigil outside the Embassy took place as normal. We were not surprised that Tsvangirai did not stop by on his way to a £75 a head dinner for exiled Zimbabweans.  

Some comments from the many disappointed and angry Zimbabweans who came on from the Cathedral to the Vigil, many of them first-timers:
·         ‘When Morgan said “the schools have re-opened” everybody cheered. When Morgan said “the hospitals have re-opened” everybody was silent. When he said “there is peace in Zimbabwe
” everyone heckled and booed and you could taste the anger in the air. One lady asked the question “if there are goods in the shops and the schools have re-opened where will everyone get money to buy food and send their children to school” – this was not answered.’
·        
‘He was speaking like Mugabe. He is saying everything is now ok.’
·         ‘The MDC expects everyone to agree or they are treated as an enemy’.·        
‘We have been betrayed by Tsvangirai’.
·         ‘Today Tsvangirai was shot down in flames by Zimbabweans in the UK
diaspora.’
·         ‘How can Tsvangirai encourage people to go home when all his children are in the diaspora,’ 

Thanks to:
·        
Fungayi Mabhunu for leaving the cathedral meeting early to make sure he was on time to open the Vigil.
·        
Jenatry Muranganwa for his impassioned leading of the singing and dancing in the Vigil demonstration outside the cathedral.
·         Arnold Kuwewa for single-handedly looked after the merchandise and register until joined by others who had attended the Tsvangirai meeting. 

It was good to welcome back Geraldine Takundwa who has been seriously ill for a long time.

Sunday, 14 June 2009 14:24

After a week of unrelentingly bad news about Zimbabwe on the BBC, we arrived to scenes of Murambatsvina outside the Zimbabwe Embassy – a couple of down and outs basking in the sun surrounded by all their worldly possessions. Our problems were further compounded by the tardiness of the water board in removing their scruffy paraphernalia from our space between the four maple trees and two lamp-posts. But the sunshine cheered us up.  

Vigil supporters discussed the forthcoming visit to the UK by Morgan Tsvangirai. He is to speak at 1 pm at Southwark Cathedral in South London next Saturday, 20th June and we agreed to be there before the Vigil to greet him with our banners ‘No to Mugabe. No to Starvation’ and ‘End Murder Rape and Torture in Zimbabwe’. These have been our messages since the start of the Vigil seven years ago and it is distressing that they are as valid now as ever.  

We will of course have the Vigil as normal and perhaps the Prime Minister may drop by – he is very welcome. 

There was talk that Tsvangirai would be accompanied to the UK by two Zanu-PF ministers, Foreign Minister Simbarashe Mumbengengwi and the Minister of Mines Obert Mpofu. Both of them are on the targeted sanctions list and the Vigil approached the Foreign Office to protest at granting visas to these two Mugabe cronies. 

We wrote: ‘Dear Mr Miliband – We urge the UK government not to grant visas to Zimbabweans on the EU travel sanctions list. There are suggestions that two Zanu-PF leaders are to be part of a delegation led by the Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai this month.  These officials, ZANU PF Foreign Affairs Minister Simbarashe Mumbengengwi and Obert Mpofu, ZANU PF's Minister of Mines, are deeply compromised.  We see no reason why they should be allowed to visit Europe. The coalition government has clearly devolved responsibilities: Mugabe’s Zanu-PF retains control of the military, the police, the judiciary, home affairs, the central bank, agriculture and information while the MDC is responsible for service delivery. Mr Tsvangirai does not need to be accompanied by Zanu-PF people on his begging mission to the West.’  

The Vigil has been assured that Mr Mpofu will not be part of the delegation.  Our assumption is that Mumbengengwi will be allowed in under a dispensation allowing for ‘dialogue’.  The Vigil does not accept the case for relaxing targeted sanctions against Mumbengengwi. But we think he makes a better companion for the Prime Minister than Tsvangirai’s niece Dr Arikana Chihombori who accompanied him to the inauguration of President Zuma.  As you may know she is an American citizen and has a large medical practice in the US where she has lived for 30 years. Nevertheless, she has seen fit to try to dispossess a Zimbabwean farmer for her holiday home.  

Various points arise, among them the fact that Zimbabwe does not allow dual citizenship so how does she qualify for an ‘offer letter’? The Vigil sent the following message to the US State Department ‘Could the US Administration question Morgan Tsvangirai about his niece Dr Arikana Chihombori, who is a US resident and has a medical practice in Antioch Tennessee? She was chosen by Tsvangirai to accompany him recently to the inauguration of President Zuma of South Africa yet she is reportedly trying to seize a productive farm in Zimbabwe like one of the Mugabe cronies (http://www.zwnews.com/issuefull.cfm?ArticleID=20968).’  

We trust that the matter was taken up when the American administration talked to Tsvangirai. There are suggestions that Tsvangirai has been seriously embarrassed and his niece has apparently put a hold on her land grab.  

Returning to the BBC’s coverage of Zimbabwe, Vigil supporters watched the video of Sekai Holland being interviewed by BBC reporter Mike Thomson in which she spoke of plans to assassinate MDC ministers.  On the basis of this video and our knowledge of the BBC, we find her backtracking rather embarrassing.

The Vigil gave a great pom pom to a man who ran 26.2 miles for us.  He is Steve Garvey who ran the London Marathon in 3 hours 26 minutes to raise funds for the Vigil. Steve, a teacher at the Dolphin School in South London, came to the Vigil some months ago with some of his pupils (8 – 9 year olds). Steve invited the Vigil to send someone to speak to his class and Vigil management team member Fungayi Mabhunu took up the challenge. He spoke of the conditions in Zimbabwe and the struggles of school children there. The response was a fundraising effort which is set to raise £1100.  

Apart from the sponsorship of Steve’s run, his Dolphin pupils raised money themselves by such methods as a sponsored maths test! One boy raised £260 on his own. Steve was raised shoulder-high by Vigil supporters when he came to deliver the major part of this generous gift.  He said he was really humbled by how he was received -- to which Vigil Co-ordinator Rose Benton said the Vigil was really humbled by his efforts on our behalf.  It is planned that the money will go to some specific educational project in Zimbabwe with which the children of Dolphin school can feel a personal involvement and perhaps establish penfriends.  

While on the subject of education, our partner organisation, Restoration of Human Rights in Zimbabwe, have held workshops in Midlands and Bulawayo. From these workshops they have identified the need to go into rural areas to educate people on their human rights to empower them to contribute to national healing. As Gweru City father, Willie Muringani, said: “I’m appealing to ROHR that meetings of this nature should be taken out in the rural areas, where there are a lot of people there who need to be opened up”. For more information: www.rohrzimbabwe.org. 

As always there was much discussion at the Vigil about the situation at home and people were disturbed at reports that two Zanu-PF ministers may be included in Morgan Tsvangirai’s entourage when he visits the UK later this month. They are Foreign Minister Simbarashe Mumbengengwi and the Minister of Mines Obert Mpofu, both of whom are subject to travel sanctions because they are key supporters of the Mugabe regime.  The Vigil is puzzled why Tsvangirai should think that bringing these people would encourage the UK to further loosen its purse strings.  The two Mugabe cronies should be worried about the prospect of a citizen’s arrest if they set foot in the UK. We would like to send them to the International Criminal Court in the Hague.   

We would like to give our grateful thanks to the Red Cross who have stepped in to feed the starving prisoners in Zimbabwe.  Many people who pass by the Vigil stop to look at our pictures of starving prisoners and express their horror.

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.
