MDCT Tsvangirai and MDC Ncube admit splitting the original MDC contributed to Mugabe’s repeated electoral victory
MDC T leader Richard Morgan Tsvangirai has had a busy week starting on Monday when he signed a Memorandum of understanding with the former leader of Zimbabwe People’s Front now the leader of National People’s Front (NPF).
He went on to sign another Memorandum of understanding with another opposition yesterday crafting a new Political Agreement with the MDC leader Professor Welshman Ncube, ending a difficult twelve year period between the two leadersTsvangirai and Ncube and their parties, MDC T and MDC ahead of the much acclaimed 2018 ballot against the then 94 year old Nonegenarian Zimbabwe dictator Robert Gabriel Mugabe.
Tsvangirai added that it is not practical for anyone to expect opposition forces to contest the 2018 ballot split apart, while Welshman Ncube also admitted blame for problems that the original MDC split created.
He admitted that this was clearly not in the national interest and split the electorate and said he concurred with Tsvangirai on everything that followed the MDC split and it was more important not just to accept responsibility over the split but also for opposition to take the necessary steps in ‘creating a formidable force’.

‘ZIMBABWE’S ELECTORAL DEMOCRACY IS IN DANGER because only 14% of the youth who form the majority of the population are registered voters’- Research and Advocacy Unit (RAU).
ZIMBABWE’S electoral democracy is in danger, as most youths are excluded from elections either through disenfranchisement or failure to contest for public office despite being the majority population, the Research and Advocacy Unit (RAU) has said.
In a report titled Framing the debate: Youth voter registration in Zimbabwe in preparation for 2018 elections released on the eve of Independence Day, RAU said there was need to move away from “electoralism” and the focus must be on the meaningfulness of the elections.
“The youth make up about 41% of the eligible voters, but only constitute 14% of the registered voters in Zimbabwe. Thus, the youth are largely excluded from democratic governance processes. They vote in less numbers than older age groups and fewer young people stand as candidates in local and national elections,” RAU said.
“Zimbabwe also has a very large demographic youth bulge, with over 75% of the population under 35 years, which this has ramifications for policy and welfare of the young.”
The think-tank noted that a voters’ roll that excludes such huge numbers of disenfranchised Zimbabweans was an inaccurate record of the eligible voters and inevitably, elections conducted using such a voters’ roll were an invalid claim of the Zimbabweans choice of leaders.
“The Zimbabweans that are allowed to register and vote should be concerned about the exclusion of eligible voters, who are being improperly excluded from the eligibility criteria,” RAU pointed out.
“Too much focus on mere voting in elections and not on the benefits of participating in those elections leads to disillusionment in the process. For many young people the questions that need to be answered are: Is there a youth agenda that needs to be heard? Which contestants in the elections are focusing on government effectiveness and do the youth know about those contestants’ ideologies?”
TWO Harare Central Hospital married nurses’ illicit affair came to light following the discovery of WhatsApp love messages by the female nurse’s husband on Monday.
Tsitsi Darare, 33, who made headlines in 2013 for cheating with a medical doctor, is at it again, this time with a married nurse Tafadzwa Jackson.
Their workplace romance came to light after Tsitsi’s husband, only identified as Baba Ruth caught her chatting with Jackson and grabbed the mobile phone and went through their conversations.
Baba Ruth disclosed to H-Metro that he has lost patience with Tsitsi forcing him to engage her parents over her behaviour given that she once cheated with a medical doctor in 2013.
“I want to believe that Tsitsi’s behaviour is almost similar to a whore because this is not her first time to cheat, she was published in newspapers in 2013 over cheating with a married doctor,” said Baba Ruth.
“She was chatting with Jackson while I was seated in the room, imagine, atotindivara nechipfambi yavanhundira mutsime inosvibisa panoiraramisa.
“When other nurses will be busy treating patients, Tsitsi and Jackson will be busy salivating to have sex, that is what I read from their conversations, she asked him for time to have sex.
“I have lost patience with this woman and my worry is about our kids and I considered their fate when I decided to forgive Tsitsi on the first incident.
“Her parents were not home when I took my kids there to have a meeting because I discovered from the messages that Tsitsi’s young sister is aware of the illicit affair and Jackson visits their house.
“To make matters worse she pretends to be an ardent follower of Christianity and attends church services every week unaware that she is a whore who cannot get sexual satisfaction from one man,” he said in the company of his two kids.
He showed H-Metro more photographs of Tsitsi partying with men in Chitungwiza.
Contacted for comment, Tsitsi denied cheating with Jackson despite the messages caught blaming Baba Ruth for cheating first.
“I sent love messages to Jackson I work with not that I am in love with him, ini ndikati kwamuri I love you does that mean we are in love,” said Tsitsi.
“He confronted me over the messages and I explained to him that I am not in love with Jackson but he failed to understand it.
“As for the photographs he showed you those are my classmates and we were having fun not that there is one I am in an affair with.
“Please do not publish that story. It is better for me to bring another story of my husband cheating with a lady because he wants to fix me,” said Tsitsi.
Tsitsi’s mother Mai Darare confirmed the mishap urging Baba Ruth to resolve his differences with Tsitsi amicably.
“Tsitsi’s husband came here but could not see me since I was attending a funeral but I urge him to resolve his differences with Tsitsi amicably,” said Mai Darare.
“I heard that he has packed his belongings and left the house but he has to remember that tomorrow he will be together with his wife and kids,” she added.
Efforts to reach Jackson were fruitless as his mobile went unanswered by the time of going to print.Below are the conversations between Jackson and Tsitsi.Source – hmetro
LIONS are wreaking havoc in Binga, killing livestock after straying into villages.
About 32 goats and eight cattle have been killed in two weeks by lions in Chitete village, Sinansengwe Ward under Chief Sinansengwe in Binga.
Sinansengwe ward councillor Mr Elmon Mudenda said they reported the matter to the Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Authority and when rangers came to the area, the lions were nowhere to be found, only to resurface afterwards.
“People are threatened with poverty as livestock is their source of wealth. Villagers here depend on cattle rearing as compared to crop growing.
“Although this is a common occurrence as it happens every year, this time the lions have come in full force, killing seven to 12 goats in one kraal on a single night,” he said.
“One villager lost 12 goats in one night while the other lost seven goats over the weekend. The National Parks and Campfire rangers came to the village, and in about three days that they were patrolling around, not a single lion was seen but as soon as they returned to Binga, the lions were spotted again.”
Chief Sinansengwe said people in Sinansengwe ward were now living in fear of the lions.
“We’ve done the best we can to drive wildlife out of our villages to safeguard human life as well as that of our livestock. However, lions have always been problematic in our wards especially in winter when people don’t drive cattle into the bushes,” said the chief.
“This time the lions are killing in larger numbers. We’re wondering if we’ll remain with any livestock unless National Parks intervenes.”
Villagers said they were appealing to the Zimbabwe National Parks and Wildlife Authority as well as to Binga Rural District Council to assist them deal with the wild animals before human lives are lost.

A 20-YEAR-OLD Harare maid, who left a bucket full of hot water unattended resulting in it spilling and scalding to death her employer’s two-year-old child, was yesterday jailed for five years.
Vaidah Nzanga will serve three years after Harare magistrate Hosiah Mujaya suspended two years on condition of good behaviour.
In his ruling, Mujaya said Nzanga showed a high degree of negligence after working as a maid and staying with different minors for five years.
“The degree of negligence is high and sentencing you to a non-custodial term will set a wrong precedent, as the minor’s life was lost in this gross negligence,” he said.
Nzanga apologised to the family in court, saying it was an accident and she did not leave the bucket full of hot water intentionally.
The State said on March 13 at around 5pm, Nzanga and the now-deceased Tanaka Chimusaru were at home. Nzanga took a 10-litre bucket full of hot water intending to use it for bathing, but left it in the passage to attend to the door.
The court heard while she was closing the door, the minor ran through the passage and hit the bucket and the water spilled onto his whole body severely scalding him.
The minor was then rushed to Mbuya Dorcas Hospital for treatment, where he died on March 15. The body was taken to Harare Central Hospital mortuary, where a doctor established that the death was due to severe burns on the whole body.
George Manokore was representing the State. By Desmond Chingarande.
Glen Norah A, Harare man (24) stabbed his 9month old baby in scuffle with the mother cut its throat and dumped the body outside the house after the woman fled from the attack.
Baby Tanatswa became the victim when the father Vincent Sakutukwa missed his wife only identified as Memory and stabbed the baby.
Vincent went on to finish off the baby by cutting its throat and dumping the body outside the house after Memory escaped from the attack.
The incident took place at House No. 1809 Ngezi Street and Vincent disappeared from the scene only to be spotted in Glen Norah C, undressed.
One of the neighbours told H-Metro that Vincent was spotted undressed hiding at a hill near Mukivisi River after he hurled stones at neighbours who failed to apprehend him threatening to stab anyone who came close to him.
“He was spotted undressed by someone who was coming from prayers and they clothed Vincent as he pretended to be insane,” said one of the neighbours.
“I want to believe that Vincent is not mentally challenged since he is studying towards a Diploma in Business Marketing but could have been attacked by evil spirits since his wife once mentioned that he would act like a baboon before the heinous act,” said the neighbour.
When H-Metro arrived, Vincent was being led to Glen Norah Police Station.
A family representative refused to entertain H-Metro referring the reporters to the source.
“We are still in shock that we cannot give a comment at the same time his wife is still mourning,” said the representative refusing to identify themselves.
