Activists and opposition are in uproar after President Robert Mugabe appointed his daughter Bona Chikore to the position of a member of the Censorship Board, a body that regulates the entertainment industry.
This comes soon after, he recently appointed his son inlaw, Bona’s husband Simba Chikore to head the national airline, Air Zimbabwe Air Zimbabwe chief operating officer.
Mugabe’s cousin, Ignatius Chombo is Zimbabwe’s Home Affairs minister.
Mugabe’s nephew , Patrick Zhuwao is the Indigenisation minister.
Other family members in office are the Zimbabwe National Roads Administration (ZINARA) board chairperson, Albert Mugabe along with the Mines minister Walter Chidakwa.
It is no secret that Perence Shiri, originally the head of the notorius murderous Fifth Brigade now the Zimbabwe Airforce Commander is Mugabe’s nephew.
Mugabe himself is approaching 94, frail and known to no longer be in control or in touch with reality and we all know that behind the scenes, his wife, First Lady Grace Mugabe is calling the shots and influencing government policy and decisions under the cover of Mugabe’s shadow. And Zimbabweans seriously thought that 2018 , will see mugabe, Zanu pf stalwarts, Zim1 family and securocrats hand over Zimbabwe to opposition on a silver platter,..really? Wake up Zimbabwe!

LIFE for Bulilima man who stole a gun, killed and robbed woman(87), raped another, robbed a third then fled to SA
A CANCER patient in Bulawayo whose breasts have ballooned to unmanageable proportions that cause her constant excruciating pain, is seeking about $10 000 for a life saving operation to cut them off.
Ms Phanankosi Dube (36), a single mother of one from Makokoba suburb, needs to raise the money by June 16.
Her family yesterday said her breasts had grown so big she can no longer walk or breathe properly.
They said doctors had confirmed that she has breast cancer, which has advanced so much that the only solution was to surgically remove them.
“My cousin is in great pain and we are failing to cope with the situation right now. She was supposed to be operated on urgently but Mpilo Central Hospital doctors scheduled it for June because she has low blood levels,” said Mr Rodney Dube, her cousin who commutes from Cowdray Park daily to take Ms Dube to Mzilikazi Clinic.
“We cannot afford to buy iron-rich food that will supplement her blood levels because we only have mealie — meal at the moment. We do hope someone will help us because the breasts are now too heavy for her and are messing up her breathing.”
He said he uses a push cart to take Ms Dube to Mzilikazi Clinic daily to have pus drained from her breasts.
“The cart causes a lot of discomfort and pain and we wish we had other means of transport so the process is less painful. At one point she was in a coma for three months and from then she has never been able to walk. We hope we will get help.”
Mr Dube said his cousin has been afflicted with breast cancer since she was in Grade Three and back then, family members thought she had been bewitched.
He added that his cousin was staying with her mother and other family members who are also struggling to put food on the table.
“I have to travel daily from Cowdray Park and take her to the clinic because her breasts need to be drained and dressed daily. I live on piece jobs and so far we have only managed to raise money to take her for a breast scan and an X-ray.”
Mr Dube said the family could be contacted on +263733668621 or on +263778411845.
Mr Taurai Mpofu, a Bulawayo social welfare officer confirmed that the family was in dire need of cash and food.
“Their living conditions are deplorable and they are relying on the Government relief programme for food. They don’t have anything to eat besides the grain they get monthly and there is nothing much from our end that we can do for the family right now,” said Mr Mpofu.
Health practitioners in the country have said a majority of cancer patients delay seeking medical attention.
Recent statistics show that more than 80 percent of patients being attended to at the Mpilo Central Hospital Cancer Unit have stage three and four cancers.
At this stage, the cancer would have advanced so much that it is virtually incurable.
The unit is in dire need of quality control equipment to start administering nuclear treatment.
Stage three and four cancers require palliative treatment which is only meant to treat symptoms or ease pain until the patient dies.
Dr Tatenda Chingonzoh, who heads the radiotherapy department of the unit, said it is disheartening that most patients presented themselves at a time when little could be done to save them.
“We always had a large number of patients which we referred to Harare previously. The biggest problem now is that a large chunk of our patients are on palliative treatment,” said Dr Chingonzoh.
Breast and cervical cancer remain the leading causes of death among Zimbabwean women.

Zimbabwe’s acting president Phelekezela Mphoko reportedly yesterday barged into Bulawayo Police Station where he and his aids spent over twenty minutes grilling cops over the arrest of Zanu pf youths on Sunday in the melee at Davis Hall.
In july 2016 Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko is reported to have furiously stormed into Avondale Police Station at night and forced the release of acting Zinara chief executive officer Moses Juma and board member Davison Norupiri.
The two senior Zinara Officials are facing charges of defrauding the state of at least US$1 million and subsequently Norupiri failed to appear in court as expected.
The Vice president undeterred by this controversial release was so daring that he demanded that his name should be recorded as the person responsible for their release in the release book.
To the ‘Discerning Eye’, this is typical of Mugabe, Zim1 family, Zanu PF stalwarts and securocrats when they are covering their backs as they are well aware that when those who have played a role in their accumulation of ill gotten wealth go down, they will pull every one down including them, so the best is just dont touch them! Any surpise that under the cover of darkness as usual, he has done the same again in 2017? Remember this man is also the long term resident at Rainbow Towers Hotel on taxpayers money while turning down multi million dollar mansion offers by the government because they were not up to his standard and taste ,…hmmmn!….more news to follow.

We all remember that in March 2008, Zimbabwe experience a tumultous time, because of unprecedented electoral violence before and post the 29 March 2008 general election.
Mugabe, Zanu PF stalwarts and securocrats had lost relevance because of the continued suffering and hunger across Zimbabwe and the people were clearly hungry for a change of power due to economic situation.
General elections were held in Zimbabwe on 29 March 2008 to elect the President and Parliament. Because of Zimbabwe’s dire economic situation, the elections were expected to provide respite for suffering Zimbabweans.
Unsurprisingly so, President Robert Mugabe, lost the election as Zimbabwe’s main opposition, MDC T leader Morgan Tsvangirai, clearly won, but Mugabe refused to step down or publish the result and chose to publicly declare that thieves were about to steal the nation.
What most Zimbabweans did not realise at that very moment in time, was that, a Chinese ship (pictured) named, the An Yue Jiang whose ship master reportedly identified as Captain Sunaijun, was on standby in the South African, Durban Port, laden with arms destined for Zimbabwe.
The ship’s deadly consignment of 77-tonnes of weapons included three million rounds of ammunition for AK-47 rifles and small arms, 1,500 rocket-propelled grenades and thousands of mortar rounds, mortar tubes and other military weapons, from Beijing to Harare, leading to South African Port workers refusing to offload the shipment as they knew very well, Mugabe was preparing to massacre Zimbabweans in a bid to stay in power even though he had lost the ballot but was unwilling to announce the result.
At the same time, the South African High Court, played a critical role in delaying a potential massacre of Zimbabweans by declaring that, the deadly ammunition could only be unloaded at port but not be transported by road. This court stance, coupled with the Port workers refusal to offload the weapons, led to the An Yue Jiang, sailing off towards Mozambique in an attempt to offload the weapons there.
With the political stalemate in place, any nation assisting the movement of the weapons to Zimbabwe, would have played a key role in suppressing a people’s defiance to oppressive authority as the cargo, was enough to run a full blown war, yet Mugabe was dealing with unarmed civilians seeking democracy for all
As far as the Chinese government was concerned, they were simply engaging in normal trade with Zimbabwe and all was in order, and they would not or involve themselves in interfere with a sovereign state’s internal affairs as was the case then, or so they claimed.
South African opposition foreign affairs and independant Human rights groups, along with International security, and international media and International pressure groups, tracked the ships movements , also using planes and helicopters, knowing very well that the Chinese government had supported Robert Mugabe by training and arming his guerrillas during the war for independance against the British government in the 70s. , while at the same time they had now reportedly furnished Mugabe’s Zanu PF government with radio-jamming devices to prevent independent stations from disseminating information to the public.
To the ‘Discerning Eye-newzimbabwevision;, China is a stumbling bloc to democracy in Zimbabwe, as, it considers Zimbabwe like an annex because Zimbabwe ‘owes’ its freedom to Chinese benevolence, hence why China has, reportedly , on past occassions vetoed the UN security council from debating Zimbabwe’s crisis arguing that Zimbabwe’s issues were an internal not a public matter.
The An Yue Jiang, having sailed around the Southern coast of Africa and met up with the same defiance all round as different port workers at different countries, refused to offload, what they knew was a looming bloodbath through Mugabe butchering their kith and kin.
Mugabe would have butchered Zimbabweans with the deadly weapons, irrespective of what race, tribe, religion or colour one was in a second wave of his gukurahundi genocide ‘moment of madness’ and that would have included many of those singing for their supper, in favour of Mugabe and his Zanu PF today,…..LITTLE DID THEY KNOW! The ship eventually sailed off back to China, with its consignment, and Zimbabweans received a lifeline but never realised how close they were to being butchered by Mugabe over Zimbabwe.
Zimbabwe’s war veterans must take the president seriously when he warns them that he will unleash a wave of the murderous gukurahundi genocide upon them,…he means it! We all know how he militarised the Chiadzwa diamond fields and cleared 30 000 diamond prospectors by using two gunship helicopters to mow down 140 people in broad day light, following it up with soldiers on foot with dogs. Mugabe is the devil’s incarnate on earth!
The problem was later resolved as Zimbabwe, shortly later on discovered Chiadzwa diamond fields, the largest and richest diamond fields ever discovered in the world over the last 100 years., thereby breathing life into a broke despot, his Zim1 family, Zanu PF stalwarts and securocrats.
An airport then larger than harare international airport with a longer runway, was built in Chiadzwa and the Chinese were granted freedom of Chiadzwa, with weapons being brought in, diamonds smuggled out and cash externalised, while Chinese companies partnered the Zimbabwe defence forces in mining diamonds.
Unsurprisingly so, Mugabe, today publicly acknowledges that the Chinese ‘cheated’ us as he cannot account for at least US$15 Billion dollars worth of diamonds. I repeat, to the ‘Discerning Eye, newzimbabwevision’ China is a stumbling bloc to democracy and Mugabe’s controversial ‘Look East ‘policy is simply legitimised crime and corruption. Mugabe, Zim 1 family, Zanu PF stalwarts and securocrats, continuously loot national wealth by monopolising wealth and power, in the name of sovereignity. At least now he will butcher his own war veterans, while we sit back and watch,…its a free show! Mugabe Must Go!
It therefore is the ‘Mother of all stupidity!’ to insist that the wealth of informed diasporans worldwide must return home. Lest we forget, at the most difficult times and even up to now, the diaspora keeps Zimbabwe running by channelling money and resources back home and maintaining the welfare and health of remaining family and relatives.
Mugabe and his Zanu pf could never have liberated Zimbabwe without the help of the outside world including countries like Russia and China who offered training for guerrillas, supplied weapons and equipment and technical support for the guerrilla war along with support from other countries like Zambia and South Africa.
Let us also realise that the situation in Zimbabwe would have been worse off if everyone had stayed back in the country and listened to ZBc and State propaganda from Herald and Chronicle newspapers which continuously spew false information designed to elevate Mugabe and brainwash the people.
The diaspora wave is the ultimate weapon of defiance by the people of Zimbabwe to oppressive authority by Mugabe, Zanu pf Stalwarts, securocrats and zim1 family.
by the time we hold the 2018 ballot, every Zimbabwean born in the diaspora after the year 2000 will be eligible to vote along with those already at or above the minimum voting age by then, With an estimated 4 million Zimbabweans in the wilderness or diaspora, the majority of whom are anti Mugabe and his Zanu pf, the diaspora has the power to push Mugabe out of power if allowed to vote and therefore that leverage must be fought for.
Diasporans must use all influence upon international bodies such as UN, EU and countries such as UK, US and South Africa to gain the right to vote at their local embassies for Zimbabwe. as sad and as painful as this sounds, the diaspora can slow down or completely run Zimbabwe aground by stopping all support going back home through the official channels thus starve the weapon of oppression.
Locals must also stop buying any products made by or associated with Mugabe, Zim 1 family, Zanu pf stalwarts and securocrats, just run them out of business. Such products can be dairy products, eg milk, ice cream and yoghurt made and sold by the Gushungo dairies, Gideon Gono chickens etc and just refuse to buy or deal with anything associated with Zanu pf such as any farming product be it beef, pork, chicken, mutton, vegetables, flowers , game and other things sold by the despot led regime members.
People must realise that the chaos and corruption in Zimbabwe was deliberately created to allow the criminal regime to amass corruptly gained wealth, such as mines, multiple farms, businesses and so forth while the people became destitute.
The reason why the Registrar general Tobaiwa Mudede now seeks to ban dual citizenship is to stop the diaspora from voting as he very well knows that the majority of the diaspora would love to see Mugabe and his Zanu pf removed from power so the Zanu pf regime wants that stopped.
Look at whats happening today in online newspapers and social media. Would we be so well informed had we all remained under the oppressive authority of Mugabe and his Zanu pf? Of course not! We would probably be like one of those rogue states who almost worship their leaders due to fear, are starved of both food and information and literally have no hope of freedom without outside intervention, but thank God, many Zimbabweans managed to escape that as they fled into the diaspora.
These criminals have amassed millions of US$ in wealth and much as don’t like Mugabe themselves, they prefer to have him stay in power, just as a symbolic leader while they loot more in the dying minutes of the corruption rather than risk losing their farms and loot to a constitutional government that would prosecute them for past crimes and genocides and pursue all their stolen wealth local and abroad.
In other words, if you thought Zanu pf are going soon as easily as that,…think again! Wake up Zimbabwe,..you need a plan,…..fast! Lets work together rather than fight amongst ourselves as that only feeds into the very profile Mugabe and his Zanu pf seek to create, such as claiming the diaspora are Western puppets,…really?
