The Vigil gathered in the middle of three days of National Hypocrisy. The so-called ‘healing’ exercise announced by Mugabe failed to convince our supporters that he has any intention of reining in his thugs or allowing the rule of law. Mugabe boasts he has degrees in violence – and obviously in hypocrisy too.  

Our supporters wanted to know when there will be justice for the oppressed and an acknowledgement of the evil perpetrated by Zanu PF. As one supporter (Brian Sibanda) said ‘what happens on day 4  . . . . back to torture?’ He was questioning Ephraim Tapa, President of our partner organisation Restoration of Human Rights in Zimbabwe (ROHR), who told the Vigil that 15 ROHR members had been arrested in Harare today during a demonstration against Mugabe’s hypocrisy.   

Ephraim joined us at our monthly forum after the Vigil and gave further details of the ROHR protest. He said over 100 ROHR activists had marched towards parliament, swelling to over 200 by the time they were stopped by police. ROHR members denounced the deception of the three day ‘healing process’ nd the police summoned reinforcements and made arrests. Undeterred others, dressed in black, went on to the venue of a ‘peace gala’.  

Here are some points which emerged from our open forum:
·         There was a suggestion that Tsvangirai was covering up the extent of violence in Zimbabwe – ‘one day he is the President of the MDC and the next the Prime Minister of Zimbabwe’.
·         Vigil supporters must approach their MPs in the UK and tell them what is going on in Zimbabwe. MPs in the UK had been misled by the propaganda that everything was ok.
·         China is going to take over all Zimbabwe’s resources and we are going to be reduced to a Chinese colony.
·         The new constitution must allow for an input from the diaspora and include provisions for dual citizenship and the vote for diasporan Zimbabweans.
·         ‘Where is the peace?’ said one supporter, ‘where is the justice?’ ‘Where is the Zimbabwe we are talking about?’
·         Another Vigil supporter expressed pessimism about real change. He called for a new party with a people’s militia.
·         Several people stressed the need for the setting up of a peace and reconciliation commission such as in post-apartheid South Africa.
·         The Vigil and ROHR are not asylum organisations – we are human rights organisations. For asylum matters supporters should consult our coalition member the Zimbabwe Association which has the necessary expertise. The question arose because people are being asked at Home Office interviews about the structures and personnel of these organisations.  Supporters were encouraged to check our websites. We are quite transparent and have nothing to hide. 
·         Zimbabwe has just been ranked number 2 in the list of failed states (after Somalia). We have climbed up the rankings one place a year since 2006 when we were ranked number 5. The failed states index is published by Foreign Policy magazine, a division of the Washington Post.  http://www.foreignpolicy.com/articles/2009/06/22/the_2009_failed_states_index.
·         10,000 days of Mugabe violence – are three days of peace enough?
·         Patson Muzuwa ‘I was arrested nine times and have been tortured. You need the longest spoon to dine with the devil’.
·         In response to a question about the Vigil’s representation in Zimbabwe, it was pointed out that our partner organisation ROHR fulfilled this function.
·         The message of the ROHR protest against the peace days cover-up was truth and justice.  Truth was needed to counteract the culture of impunity then justice. Only after that could peace and forgiveness follow.
·         Talk of a new constitution was a red herring. People are too abused.  Free and fair elections and stable government is needed before a constitution can be drawn up. 

The Vigil understands that Bishop Chad Gandiya is to be enthroned on Sunday in Harare and we send him our best wishes.  Our supporters sent his wife Faith some hyacinth bulbs and we trust they are coming out now.   

We were pleased to hear that long-term supporter Priscillah Chakanyuka had got her papers and it was good to welcome back Vigil team member Bonny Adams from her travels. Thanks once again to Jonathan Kariwoh who stepped in to manage the back table.

We were pleased to learn that several Vigil supporters have recently been given their papers to remain in the UK – despite the confusion caused by Morgan Tsvangirai’s remarks at Southwark Cathedral during his London visit. 

Vigil management team member Patson Muzuwa told us he had attended three asylum tribunal hearings in which the judges had pointed to Mr Tsvangirai’s appeal to people to return home and also to the fact that the MDC UK Representative Hebson Makuvise (Mr Tsvangirai’s uncle), who had been given refugee status here, had returned home safely. Ironically, Patson was able to provide the tribunals with evidence from the MDC itself that human rights abuses were continuing and the judges expressed horror at the situation.   

We are also told that the Home Office has been asking asylum seekers whether they ‘bought’ support letters from the Vigil. One lady said she had been able to assure the authorities that the Vigil did not ‘sell’ letters and explained our position as laid out in our diary of 27th June. We charge a small fee to cover our administration expenses (paper, printer cartridges, phone calls, postage, expenses involved in keeping a computer record of attendance etc) as we are entirely self-funding. We published full details because we wanted our policy to be known widely to counteract malicious allegations by some (including supposedly MDC) people here. They appear to be panicking because our partner organisation, Restoration of Human Rights in Zimbabwe, is rapidly growing in popularity.  On one recent Saturday there were 6 ROHR meetings in various parts of the UK and the recent launch of the ROHR Hatfield branch drew 80 people.  It seems our critics will stop at nothing to try and damage us. They appear to have learnt quite a lot from Zanu-PF.  

Apart from our usual banners and posters calling for Mugabe to go, supporter Brian Sibanda brought a new one which everyone thought was apposite given the fuss over Mr Tsvangirai’s London speech. It said simply ’booing is also freedom of expression’. 

On his 91st birthday, Vigil supporters sent their congratulations to Nelson Mandela. He asked people to spend 67 minutes (representing the 67 years he has spent serving humanity) doing something for their community to mark the occasion.  Well, we spent 240 minutes on the streets of London doing our bit for the people of Zimbabwe, as we have for the last seven years. 

On a lovely warm day we were pleased to be joined by Sue, now recovered after her successful eye operation. She said how pleased she was to be back. We were doubly lucky because, no sooner had we packed up, than it started to rain.

The fruits of Obama’s election to the US Presidency may be stranger than imagined. As we hastily set up the Vigil in anticipation of rain, one of our first visitors was an Afro-American political activist from Atlanta who showed great interest in our protest. He spoke to Fungayi Mabhunu of the Vigil management team about our demands for free and fair elections, restoration of the rule of law and liberty of the press and constitutional progress.   

There has somehow been an expectation that Obama would side with the African elite. His visit to Ghana and the appointments to his African diplomatic team make clear, however, that he will be an even tougher proposition than Mr Bush for recidivists such as Mugabe.  

He appears to be a man with genuine compassion for the suffering of ordinary people  and the Vigil was happy when he refused to receive a minister from Zanu-PF who tried to insinuate himself into the White House on the back of Morgan Tsvangirai. We trust President Obama will put pressure on SADC to enforce the GPA which is now due for review.  Five months into the Unity Government the agreement has still not been observed: no free media, no rule of law, no end to the lies and now the military refusing to relinquish their bloody grip on the Marange diamonds.  

And what do we get from our friends in South Africa? An old Zimbabwean woman – blind and deaf – is arrested in Johannesburg and thrown into jail for loitering. She was sleeping on the pavement.  God forgive you South Africa and your Home Affairs spokesman who blames Zimbabwe’s problems on ‘sanctions’.  

We look to President Obama to see through these lies and special pleading and insist that all partners to the GPA – including SADC – live up to their obligations.  

The management team met after the Vigil to discuss how we should send home the money we have collected for education in Zimbabwe. As many of you know we have received more than £800 raised by a sponsored run in the London Marathon by Steve Garvey, a teacher at the Dolphin School in South London, and other projects by his pupils. It was decided to spend the money on stationery and sports equipment for schools in Zimbabwe. It was felt that the money would go further if equipment was purchased in the UK. We will keep you informed of progress on this. 

It was good to see a lot of old friends including Jennifer Hukura who has attended 33 times in the last year.  We value her consistent support.  Thanks also to Kelvin Kamupira for helping the team to manage the register and to Fungayi who went miles out his way to deliver the Vigil camera so pictures could be put on the internet.

Another baking hot Vigil, this time enlivened by a passing parade of drag queens from the annual Gay Pride march.  Despite Mugabe’s close interest in gays, they were more interested in their gorgeous plumage than Zimbabwean human rights abuses. 

As always, there were many newcomers to the Vigil and much discussion of the situation back home. Supporters are worried at suggestions that the timescale for new elections may be pushed back. This comes not only from Zanu-PF. The rationale is that the country is not ready and there may be violence etc.  The Vigil insists that the timescale envisaged in the GPA be honoured. This provided for a new constitution within 18 months followed by elections.   

During his visit to London Morgan Tsvangirai appealed to the diaspora to return home.  The Vigil believes there is little prospect of this until an MDC government is in power. We think that the longer it takes to get rid of Mugabe the less likely it is that Zimbabweans will return home in any numbers.  The reason is that people are putting down roots in their new countries: children are at school etc.  

The Vigil has received a letter from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in response to our request to the Foreign Secretary not to grant visas to Zimbabwe ministers on the EU travel ban list.  The letter says the EU allowed exemptions to attend intergovernmental meetings for political dialogue which promotes democracy, human rights and the rule of law in Zimbabwe. The Vigil believes this must include free and fair elections – our one and only demand.   

Attendance was a bit down this week but we notice that our partner organisation ROHR was having no less than six meetings today around the UK: Bedford, Wolverhampton, Woking, Bournemouth, Liverpool and Manchester. In the first half of this year 2,040 people came to the Vigil at least once.  This approaches the figure for the whole of last year (2,421). 

You will be pleased to hear that Sue Toft’s eye operation seems to have been a success though she has been unable to rejoin us as yet.  Thanks to her daughter Francesca for standing in for her and also to Caroline who comes all the way from Exeter to help us out.  Thanks also to Cleopas Tapambwa, a faithful supporter, who lends a hand everywhere and lends two hands to the drumming.

In the humid heat it was tempting to slope off from the Vigil and find a television to watch the second rugby test match between South Africa and the British Lions in Pretoria to see whether the Zimbabwean Tendai Mtawarira, known as ‘the Beast’, could repeat his heroics when he won the first test for the host country. 

But Vigil supporters were too fired up about another matter – the silly allegations on some loud-mouthed Zimbabwean exile websites that the Vigil and ROHR were behind the booing of Morgan Tsvangirai when he spoke to the UK diaspora in Southwark Cathedral last week. Anyone looking at videos of the occasion will see that the angry response was prompted by Mr Tsvangirai’s remarks and was spontaneous and could not possibly have been planned. 

The meeting’s organisers also sought to blame asylum seekers, accusing them of being selfish and not being up to date with the situation on the ground in Zimbabwe – the 'progress' that has been made. Well, frankly, with the abundant access to information that we have in the UK we sometimes feel that we have to tell people at home what is going on – that, for instance, the MDC Deputy Minister for Mines, Murisi Zwizwai, seems to have been co-opted by Zanu-PF in claiming that there is no evidence of killings in the Marange diamond fields.  

What upset the Zimbabwean exiles at Southwark Cathedral was this type of half truth being peddled by the MDC leadership.  We are not convinced that everything is ok, that Mugabe’s grip on power is being loosened or that human rights violations and farm invasions are not happening. 

The Vigil went ahead with our human rights demonstration outside the cathedral despite an extraordinary e-mail to us from an MDC organiser talking about possible violence. What was this about? The Vigil has been staging demonstrations at least once a week for seven years without any trouble.   

Among the efforts to destabilise the Vigil are predictable allegations of the misuse of money, most recently accusations of ‘selling’ letters to support asylum claims.  We have spelt out our policy before but here it is again:
1.       We do not have membership fees.
2.       We do not make any charge to committed supporters of the Vigil for letters.
3.       To people who have come 6 times or more (out of 350!) there is a fee of £10 to cover administration expenses for a detailed letter.
4.       To those who have come less than 6 times we are reluctant to say they are supporters but will write a one-line letter confirming they have attended. We charge £20 to discourage this.  

Now what happens to this money? No one draws a salary. Some of the money goes on administration expenses, some of it goes on fares and welfare expenditure for our supporters. The bulk goes to help ROHR and other Zimbabwean human rights causes as agreed by the finance committee and Vigil management team.   

The role of the Vigil and ROHR was discussed extensively at our very well-attended monthly forum held after the Vigil. Ephraim Tapa, President of ROHR, said the organisation was non-party political and was working with many partners on various platforms in Zimbabwe, South Africa and the UK. For further information see the ROHR press statement (see previous posting on this website). Vigil Co-ordinator Dumi Tutani was warmly applauded when he said we were being targeted for telling the truth but we would continue our demonstrations for free and fair elections for as long as it takes.  

Thanks to Jonathan Kariwoh for helping the management team with the register. Thanks also to Pamela Dunduru, Chair of ROHR West Bromwich branch and Diana Mtendereki also of West Bromwich for supplying soft drinks for Vigil supporters.
