It is Mugabe. When elections come around, people who canvas for opposition campaigns are thrown in prison, and the people are effectively forced to vote for him. Not to mention when he threw out all the white farmers and gave the lands back to the people, they're used not for farming, but for pretty spotsto have a picnic. What a waste of some of, if not the most fertile lands on the planet.

Were have you been. I saw you mail, i had an accident in december (left shoulder got damged bad-pins and steel plates are now on my clavicle bone). and only started work on monday last week. Haven't heard from you in a while.

How are things in down in Bulawayo (" City Of Kings")?

That highfield event was sad, and they guy who got killed - at his funeral yesterday the police went and rampaged all over them. And shot and killed another guy "sad" isn't it. And it did come out in the paper.

Did you check the commutter omnibus story, my secretary was in it with her boyfriend coming from Kwekwe, and she lost all her particulars such as
ID, Drivers License (provisional anyway) and passport. Whilst Mudede is not issuing any Passports, ID's for the next 2 years (with a backlog of over 300 000 applicants as of Dec 2006)

and the people are effectively forced to vote for him.

Not all is true,

Last time, the votes and winners had already be done before the election even started. Civil workers were on overtime schedules.
Notice why the Census never came out that was done a year after elections?

Cause you have a constituancy that the ruling party won with 23 000 votes, and opposition had 9 000 votes - in a area which has a population of 7 000...

even if magabe should leave it will take decades for that country to come right

03-14-2007, 06:05 AM
even if magabe should leave it will take decades for that country to come right

Yes, that depends...

Hey we did it in Zambia and it was almost the same scenario-although agricultural imputs were different those days for us in Zambia (during the late 1980s and early 1990s). But look at our economy its developing fast!

Hey is it true that South Africa were given the RED light on supplying some fuel to ZIM or risk having no support for the soccer WORLD CUP, from the west?


03-14-2007, 04:59 PM
i don't know i don't follow soccer but i don't see why it should be
one of the reasons why it will take zimbabwe so long to come right is the farms is fucked & i heard it will take many years to get that soil right for producing but besides for that the last time i checked the zim$ was 4 cents to our rand & a american $ is worth 7.50 of our rands the euro is worth almost 10 of our rands
you need a wheel barrow of money to buy a chicken in zimbabwe so most of the people is starving to death
we got a problem with them flocking our borders so that they can eat out of our bins not that there is much in there
our president could put a stop to magabe if he wanted to but that's not how african presidents do shit they believe we here to support them
you want to look at the most evil gangsters it's the african goverments
if you look at india they still not on their feet yet from the time england ruled there & they make their own cars, planes, tv's, nuclear weapons all by themselfs i find it hard to believe that zimbabwe can come up because they can't produce nothing it's a problem south africa is going to be faced with & it's going to cost us billions which means we are going to live even harder then we already are

Drugged soldiers brutalized Tsvangirai (http://enoughzimbabwe.org/drugged-soldiers-brutalized-tsvangirai/)

In one of the most harrowing accounts of the brutal beating endured by Tsvangirai, it has emerged that it was in fact the army that was unleashed on the opposition leadership.
A crack Commando unit based at the army’s Cranborne Barracks in Harare was responsible for the brutal torture of Morgan Tsvangirai and other opposition leaders on Sunday, according to a police officer who witnessed the assault.
The police officer, who is based at Machipisa Police Station in Highfield suburb, said Tsvangirai and the other opposition leaders were tortured for close to two hours by drugged soldiers disguised as police officers.
In an interview with ZimOnline on Tuesday, the police officer who cannot be named for security reasons, said: “I have been in the police force for three years, and I have been involved in the assault of suspects.
“But what I saw on Sunday was not assault. It was attempted murder, especially on Tsvangirai, Madhuku and Kwinjeh (Grace, the MDC deputy secretary for international affairs)”
Tsvangirai fainted three times during the murderous assault.
In a harrowing narration of what transpired behind the police walls to our correspondent in Harare, the police officer, speaking in hushed tones, said 12 Commandoes from Cranborne Barracks were responsible for the assault.
Even police officers were unnerved by the seriousness and brutality of the assault.
“They (soldiers) were dressed in police uniform and had bloodshot eyes. They told us they were police officers, but I managed to identify them as Commandoes because of the green army belts they were wearing on top of the uniforms.
“Only commandoes wear those. One of them announced that they had smoked a special grade of marijuana for the special mission. I witnessed the whole incident. Police officers from Machipisa were not involved. We were stunned at the ruthlessness.
“They were shouting and telling Tsvangirai that they could kill him on that night and nothing would happen to them,” said the officer.
The police officer said the beatings started at 11.45pm and lasted for more than two hours.

unleashed on the opposition leadership.

For government politics we are not involved. But for example on the 14 of March 2007, my neighborhood....

From 19:00hrs, any civilian was heavy beaten up in any street or road that they were in. With no reason, fear or favour.

That afternoon, our local police station and camp-where police officers stay with their families, had a funeral by the Officer-In-Charge' house. And hundreds of people had gathered for the burial procession. Then someone petrol boomed the gathering severily burning a dozen women and men.

So it leaves one to think that heyt if individuals are getting cuaght up in all this.....what is to happen next.

Another neighborhood "Glen View" near mine also had the same experience, where civilians burnt police buses and this was their statement "since we are already dead, there is nothing to fear"

And this weekend it is going to happen in another neighborhood called "Tafara", then sunday in "DZ".

And those people have warned that Morroco should not come to play Zimbabwe here,rather they should play in a neural country....

A policeman's story

A policeman, who spoke to IRIN under condition of anonymity, described the "unbearable conditions" the police now faced as a result of the political tension.

"When violence breaks out due to political disturbances, work becomes unbearable for us as police officers. Since February we have not been allowed to go off duty or on leave," he said.

"Our bosses say the police force is understaffed and no-one should even think of taking a rest. That means we are on duty 24 hours a day. The pressure is even greater for us who are attached to PISI [the intelligence unit] because we have to be out, in plain clothes, gathering information on who is saying what and whether there are plans to carry out rallies or demonstrations, and where," he complained.

"People are growing increasingly angry with the police and army, as they say we are being used by the government to beat them up, yet we will simply be carrying out orders. It is not that we like to beat up people, no. Remember, some of them are our relatives, friends and neighbours. But we have to safeguard our jobs: employment is difficult to find these days, and I have a family to look after."

He added: "Yes, the people might hate us for simply being police officers, but they should remember that we are also unhappy with the kind of life we are living today: we buy from the same shops, board the same mode of transport with them, and get very paltry salaries."

In a country with a prostrate economy and an inflation rate of over 1,700 percent, "I can't manage to send my child to a good school because my salary is small, and every month I am forced to borrow from moneylenders, who charge high interest," he said.

"Most of the time, we go out to carry out our duties on empty stomachs and, because these tasks are given at short notice, we can even go for a whole day without food because the police force cannot manage to send provisions whenever there are special assignments to be carried out."

British MP slams SA's quiet diplomacy on Zimbabwe
March 16, 2007, 18:45

Kate Howy, a British member of parliament, has criticised President Thabo Mbeki and South Africa for not taking a stronger stance against the political situation in Zimbabwe. Howy says the reason why Mbeki and South Africa has a huge responsibility was at the G8 meeting in Gleneagles two years ago where Mbeki came as a representative of Southern Africa and signed up to good governance and democracy. But what he has done is have a policy of quiet diplomacy which clearly has not worked.”

Tutu says African silence on Zimbabwe is a 'shame'
http://www.sabcnews.com/article/images/0,1059,43440,00.gif Desmond Tutu says 'we Africans should hang our heads in shame' on events in Zimbabwe
March 16, 2007, 18:15

Desmond Tutu, the South African Nobel laureate, said today that African leaders should feel ashamed for their silence on events in Zimbabwe where the main opposition said police assaulted activists including its leader.

"We Africans should hang our heads in shame," Tutu said in a written statement. "How can what is happening in Zimbabwe elicit hardly a word of concern let alone condemnation from us leaders of Africa?" he said. The opposition Movement for Democratic Change says Morgan Tsvangirai, its head, and scores of party supporters, were arrested and beaten in police custody after attempting to stage a prayer rally in Harare in defiance of a ban by Robert Mugabe, the Zimbabwean president's government.

Images of a battered and bruised Tsvangirai going to court have triggered condemnation from former colonial ruler Britain, the United States and other Western countries, but the response from Africa has been largely muted. "After the horrible things done to hapless people in Harare, has come the recent crackdown on members of the opposition what more has to happen before we who are leaders, religious and political, of our mother Africa are moved to cry out 'Enough is enough?'," Tutu said. John Kufuor, the African Union chairperson, said leaders on the continent should be embarrassed over events in Zimbabwe, and do more to resolve the crisis there.

Mugabe tells West to 'go and hang'
http://www.sabcnews.com/article/images/0,1059,43413,00.gif Robert Mugabe, the Zimbabwean president
March 15, 2007, 16:45

Robert Mugabe, the Zimbabwean president, today told Western countries which have criticised his government over accusations that it assaulted the main opposition leader to "go and hang". "It is the West as usual ... when they criticise the government trying to prevent violence and punish the perpetrators of that violence we take the position that they can go hang," Mugabe said after a meeting with Jikaya Kikwete, the Tanzanian leader.

Meanwhile, in South Africa the ANC Caucus in Parliament has expressed grave concern over the current situation in Zimbabwe, saying that torture, assault and acts of violence against any citizen cannot be condoned.

Operation Murambatsvina: Operation Cleanup:
How Robert Mugabe Punished 1.5 million Black people in 1 month

Here is a quick summary of the background of what you are about to see:-
In June 2005, Robert Mugabe unleashed a rampage of hell against those who voted for the Opposition in March 2003.
European Union observers stated that the March 2003 election was stolen by Mugabe.
Knowledgeable insiders have estimated that the MDC won the March 2003 election by a factor of 2:1 against Mugabe.
The Police, with earthmoving equipment smashed and burned the houses where 1.5 million Black people lived.
They also smashed businesses (e.g. Grocery stores, hair salons, etc) and even demolished a Muslim Mosque.
Black people say that Police and earthmoving equipment arrived suddenly and started smashing and burning down houses without warning while all their possessions were inside.
Two Black children were crushed to death inside their homes before their parents could save them.
Eddie Cross of the MDC estimates this country-wide campaign will ultimately result in 2 million Blacks losing their homes.
To date, the estimated number of Black people arrested number a staggering: 46,000 (and rising).
It is estimated, that in less than a month Mugabe has destroyed 25% of the economy through this action.
The United States Govt and the European Union have condemned this. The United Nations will investigate it (but will they side with Mugabe?)
Over 200 Human Rights groups have protested against this action.
The South African Govt and the African Union (replacement for the OAU) have refused to condemn or criticise any of this.
Mugabe has publicly praised the Police for what they did. Take a look at the photos below and decide if you agree with this.
The 26 photos I have assembled below are from many sources, including the BBC. Many of these photos had to be smuggled out of Zimbabwe secretly.

This satellite photo shows a shanty town in the city of Harare. It was taken on April 16, 2005. The shiny tin roofs of the dwellings can be seen.

Poaching Horror</B>
The full scale slaughter of game at farms and reserves is so severe that endangered species such as the Wild Dog and Cheetah have now become extinct in Zimbabwe. The national parks which used to be the pride of the country are being destroyed while pleas of help go unheeded worldwide. An investigating team reported that tons of ivory is being exported to Asia and lion to Nigeria. A ZCTF spokesperson said "it is an organised business and government officials and the police are involved." We present here a personal account of this tragedy. The authors name has been withheld to protect his/her identity.

To highlight the loss of wildlife in Zimbabwe, as things are at this time, through rampant poaching, illegal hunting and downright slaughter on a daily basis, I thought it proper to write down for the reader, who would take the time to read this article, some of my experiences on the ground. Since the land invasions started on the 10 March 2000, where wild animals were done awav with in the most horrendous and barbaric ways, all of these incidences in the course of my duty, which was to protect and care for the wild animals on our property.

Like all living things, none of us want to die, and every living species on this earth has its reasons for staying alive. God gave us humans dominion over all living things, and at the same time, because of our superiority, we were given the charge to be sensible and wise, and utilise our responsibilities properly toward them.
