The budget airline Ryanair has left an alarming volume of passenger frustrated over ‘ruined’ travel plans, with a total of approximately 285,000 journeys set to be affected by airline’s attempt to improve service punctuality.
 
Over the forthcoming six week period, Ryanair will cancel between 1,680 and 2,100 flights as it works to ‘improve service punctuality’ which had fallen sharply below 80% over the first two weeks of September 2017.
 
Ryanair passengers who are the affected customers were certainly not pleased by the unscheduled cancellations which have in some cases ruined to and from holiday travel plans.
 
The Ryanair spokesperson says after the peak summer months of July and August the airline must allocate annual leave to staff including pilots and cabin crew in September and October 2017,
while at the same time still operating the majority of their summer scheduled services. Ryan air has apologised for the expected clearing of staff leave backlog.
 
It is clear that with an average of 40-50 flights cancelled per day by Ryan air, over a six weeks period , approximately 285,000 journeys will be affected by this. more news to follow. By Sibusiso Ngwenya

Zimbabwe’s security services, agree to back, VP, Mnangagwa, succession of Mugabe , likely to cancellation and/or delay 2018 elections

17796338_10212042578916630_4794196093718956864_n
COLOGNE – The top brass of Zimbabwe’s security services, have reportedly agreed to back political artful dodger, Vice President, Emmerson Mnangagwa, as the second republic president of the land, to replace President Robert Mugabe, “come what may”, as the ruling Zanu PF succession battle matrix, will now it seems, be resolved in all but a military solution, Spotlight Zimbabwe reported on Friday (today).
 
The development might result in the complete cancellation and/or delay of the much anticipated 2018 presidential and parliamentary polls government insiders pointed out this week, amid a vow by war veterans led by former minister and diplomat, Christopher Mutsvangwa, to decampaign Mugabe and make sure that he loses next year, as the fall-out between Mugabe and ex-combatants appears to be now irreconcilable.
 
Prominent publisher and political analyst, Ibbo Mandaza, last week gave credence to suspicion that the 2018 plebiscite might be called off, when he told a media stakeholders conference in Harare, that the country’s elections are controlled by the military at their KG6 barracks, and that there are two reasons why next year’s poll is unlikely, namely Mugabe’s failing health and a possible formation of another inclusive government.
 
An international media report on Mnangagwa allegedly planning to seal a deal for a Governement of National Unity, with former prime minister, Morgan Tsvangirai, that would run for a couple of years to manage a post-Mugabe transition, while stabilising the political and economic environment in the country to avoid chaos went viral on social media a fortnight ago, with Tsvangirai categorically denying the existence of such a pact.
 
High ranking army sources said the daring move by the security apparatus to support a Mnangagwa presidency “come what may” is reminiscent of the 2008 elections ordeal, where the army’s top lieutenants came to Mugabe’s rescue after he had suffered a shock first round defeat to Tsvangirai.
 
“The media has eyes, but it cannot see,” said a Brigadier who asked not to be named due to the sensativity of the matter. “Zimbabwe is enjoying peace and stability because of the army. I don’t see a scenario whereby this country will be ruled by someone without endorsement from the military. Our president was almost booted out in 2008, but we became the last line of defence and ensured it did not happen. It is in the same vain that the security leadership have settled for our vice president, who has been our minister on numerous occassions. Watch and see.”
 
Mugabe, according to the Washington Post, summoned his top security officials to a government training center near his rural home in central Zimbabwe on the afternoon of March 30 2008, to inform them that he had lost the presidential vote held the previous day. The Zanu PF strongman told the gathering “he planned to give up power in a televised speech” to the nation the next day, but the country’s military chief, General Constantino Chiwenga, responded that the choice was not Mugabe’s alone to make.
 
The paper citing two firsthand accounts of the meeting, said Chiwenga told Mugabe his military would take control of the country to keep him in office or the president could contest a runoff election, directed in the field by senior army officers supervising a military-style campaign against the opposition. Mugabe eventually won a landslide victory during a run-off.
 
National security chefs, according to the army sources are said to have consented to Mnangagwa’s takeover ahead of any other Zanu PF contender, during a security meeting held in the capital last month under the auspices of the Joint Operations Command (JOC), when Mnangagwa was in South Africa receiving treatment in Johannesburg, following a poisoning scare after allegedly making an “adverse reaction” to a milkshake drink served at a ruling party rally in Gwanda.
 
JOC is a shadowy quasi military organ, bringing together the country’s military-security complex which includes the army, and its military intelligence wing and Presidential Guard, Air Force, police, prisons and the Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) to manage homeland security affairs.
 
Two other candidates have now emerged as hot favourites to replace Mugabe when he steps down, apart from Mnangagwa, and these are; First Lady, Grace Mugabe said to be viciously pushing for the vice president’s ouster before the 2018 poll with support from the G40 faction composed of young turks inside the party, and defence minister, Sydney Sekeramayi, who has been praised for his humility and loyalty to Mugabe by G40 masterminds. However some say Sekeramayi is only being thrown into the ring to act as a political buffer for Grace, while denting Mnangagwa’s prospects.
 
The first lady only last week during another so called Youth Interface rally with the President in Bindura, stunned Zanu PF supporters when she insinuated that Sekeramayi is likely going to be Mugabe’s successor, after disclosing that her husband had some time ago called for the defence minister at his bedside in Borrowdale “to give him instructions on what to do” upon suffering a terrible diarrhoea for about two weeks, as he feared he was about to die.
 
“I can confirm that it is now official that VP Mnangagwa is going to be the next leader of this country,” said one senior army official based at Defence House in Harare. “This has been agreed upon by the leaders of JOC. A meeting was held last month when both the vice president and president were away in South Africa. From their (security chiefs) point of view, the president’s succession issue is now a matter of national security, therefore it cannot be left to Zanu PF alone. The Zimbabwe Defence Forces Commander himself is convinced that our country is still under outside aggression, and only someone like the vice president will not compromise national security.”
 
Mugabe was also coincidentally in South Africa during Mnangagwa’s hospitalisation, attending to a Sadc meeting and diplomatic storm, after Grace had been slapped with assault charges by a South African citizen, Gabriella Engels, a twenty year old model and nightclub hostess, who accused her of assaulting her with an extension cord at a Johannesburg hotel where her party freak sons rented oppulent flats. Grace claims to have been in South Africa to seek medical attention for her sore leg.
 
Spotlight Zimbabwe has since reported that Mnangagwa now has considerable backing from influential foreign powers such as China, India and Britain. The British Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Catriona Laing, has been accused of sympathising with the vice president’s faction in Zanu PF, a charge she has dismissed vehemently. Source – spotlight

An intricate web of calls between two police officers and four civilians before and after they robbed an Indian businessman of US$56 000 at a fake roadblock led to their conviction yesterday.

An intricate web of calls between two police officers and four civilians before and after they robbed an Indian businessman of $56 000 at a fake roadblock led to their conviction yesterday.
 
Dickson Morosi (32), Kundai Makwarimba (35) and Fortune Sibanda (29), Bekezela Masuku (44), Chris Kadungure alias Butter Makiyi (46), Kelvin Makiyi (28) were convicted of robbery by Harare regional magistrate Mr Elijah Makomo. The prosecutor Ms Rudo Chasi told the court that some of the accused have previous convictions.
 
The matter was adjourned to Monday. In his judgment Harare regional magistrate Mr Elijah Makomo said the six pretended to the court that they all met for the first at remand prison yet a slew of calls placed them at the crime scene. “The accused alleged that the police assaulted them leading them into submitting to things they did not do,” said Mr Makomo.
 
“However, the accused failed to sustain the allegations of undue influence. Call histories of all the accused show an intricate web of calls around the time of the offence.
 
“A slew of calls from Kadungure to Morosi, Makwarimba, Sibanda, and Makiyi points to him and one Charles Saraf who is on the run as the master minders of the crime.
 
“The court has no doubt of the invincible case against the accused. They are guilty as charged.” Makwarimba and Sibanda are stationed at Harare Central Police Station and Morris Depot respectively.
 
The gang got wind that Junaid Pervaiz was transporting money from his shop to his house in Belvedere and hatched a plan to rob him. They drove in a silver Toyota Spacio and a Honda Fit both without registration number plates and waylaid him along Hudson Road, Belvedere.
 
They mounted a fake police roadblock with two of them wearing police uniforms and traffic reflective sleeves. As the complainant approached the “roadblock” while driving his Toyota Runx, he was flagged down by the gang and he complied.
 
They forcibly pulled out his car keys from the ignition and searched his vehicle. They found a black satchel which was at the back seat and demanded to know its contents.
 
One of the accused persons then opened the satchel and found cash amounting to $56 800. They suddenly grabbed the bag and jumped into their gate away cars and drove off.
 
Morosi helped police recover a Mazda Familiar and $500 cash, while an Altezza that Makwarimba bought was impounded.
 
Sibanda assisted police recover a Mercedes Benz.

Smiler, a voice defiant to oppression, information is power,..speak out!

Image may contain: 1 personINFORMATION IS POWER! I have for almost three decades, held a highly prominent role in Information dissemination in Zimbabwe, starting from soon after University of Zimbabwe graduation in 1994, working as the then National Head of Mass media and Training depart in Zimbabwe’s Government Department of Agriculture and Technical Extension Services (AGRITEX).Image may contain: 1 person, text

This was a highly demanding post which included training staff and farmers in agriculture, writing, editing, publishing and translation into Shona, Ndebele and English of staff and farmer literature and training materials because I’m multilingual.Image may contain: 2 people, text

Along with this well travelled job into the deepest and most remote areas corner to corner across Zimbabwe, I was responsible for producing and presenting a total of 7 Radio Programmes on ZBC National Radios 1, 2 and 4.Image may contain: 1 person

These programmes were, 1) Agritex Farm Diary on radio 1, 2)Tinokushevedzai varimi 3) Nhau Dzevarimi 4) Kuchengetedzwa kwezvipfuwo 5) Sibiza abalimi, 6) Ukugcinwa kwezifuyo and 7) Izindaba zabalimi. This gave me a great insight into Zimbabwe’s land issue, the imbalances in land and resources allocation created by the racist Ian Smith regime in favour of whites, while persecuting, marginalising and stripping indigenous blacks of their birth right,..land in the motherland.Image may contain: sky and outdoor

My biggest challenge in life is that, Im Sibusiso Ngwenya from Matebeleland and my totem is Gushungo. My great granddad came from Zvimba around the time of the arrival of the settler column, changed his name from Nyamangara to Ngwenya and settled in Matebeleland and part of my family have stuck with that name. Image may contain: cloud and outdoorMy mum is Shona from Masvingo, and I have coloureds and whites in the family through marriage but that diversity is what drives my passion in fighting for a united Zimbabwe for all people of all race, tribe, religion and political orientation. I was certainly born Rhodesian, am proud to have both Shona and Ndebele roots but ultimately I’m 100% Zimbabwean and thats what I stand for because no tribe, race or religion is greater than the other.Image may contain: 3 people

We are all equal,..lets pull together for a better Zimbabwe for all our children and descendants. Mugabe, Zim 1 family, Zanu pf stalwarts and securocrats must all go. It is literally of no consequence, retiring Mugabe alone as crime, corruption and all political and social decadence are well ingrained into the oppressive, despot led Zanu pf system.Image may contain: 3 people

Feeling pressured and stifled by the government which maintained a keen eye on what I would churn out on air weekly across 7 national radio programmes, monitoring my movements, I decided to spread my wings and in 1996 joined a Civic Education NGO.No automatic alt text available.

As the Projects officer Heading the Outreach Department in the NGO, I was again responsible for nationwide training , writing, editing, publishing and translation into Shona, Ndebele and English of literature and training materials because I’m multilingual all targeted at the ordinary people of Zimbabwe in urban and rural projects. My past experience and exposure to the people countrywide along with my multilingual back ground, gave me an advantage as I did not need to struggle reaching out to target communities as I had already been working with them.Image may contain: text

I have added photos here of some of the massive volumes of publications I generated during that era in English, Ndebele and Shona, funded by the Embassy of the United States in Harare and several International donors.Image may contain: 3 people

I believe that Information is power. I have walked a long road in the fight against oppressive authority, An oppressed soul heals with time but the challenge is to silence the oppressed mind. My silence will ultimately resonate in a voice that is strongly opposed to oppression, readily challenge authority and fearlessly lobby for changes that create a better future for our children and descendants, coloured, black, white, any race, tribe, religion or political orientation. I will always fight for good governance justice, equal opportunities, peace, democracy and prosperity for all, thereby establishing a legacy whose benefits will live beyond generations to follow for all people of all race and tribe .

Being an unchained voice for the voiceless and fearlessly against oppressive authority, while continuously pressured and clearly persecuted for my unquestionable stance against oppression, and, along with 35 others officers from NGOs and interested parties who all shaped the Zimbabwe Election Support Network, (Zesn), we produced a report on the Parliamentary Elections in Zimbabwe held on 24 and 25 June 2000 and knowing very well what I already knew and had been voicing all along, see book below.

I then had great introspection into my life and realised, I wasn’t going anywhere under such a despot led Zanu pf regime. I realised that when I grew up in Masvingo rural areas, Mugabe was a legend and the only voice that we as children could identify instantly on radios that were played at low volume at night to avoid being heard by the Rhodesian forces. This culminated in massive euphoria when he Mugabe won the leadership of Zimbabwe, ending white rule by the racist Rhodesian government and we moved into urban life, which we fled within a few months of doing so as there were tribal tensions between the Ndebele and Shona people of Zimbabwe. This was the time at which Mugabe’s government could have worked at building a united people, yet they chose not to.

This was proven by what transpired next, because before 1980 it was sound of gunfire, bombs and death due to war before 1980 independance in Masvingo then fleeing Masvingo after that because of the tribal tensions.

On fleeing from Masvingo, in 1980, it was literally like jumping from the pan straight into the fire because the next thing we faced was the Entumbane war 1980 and 1981 in Bulawayo and gukurahundi 1983 to 1987 then three years of teargas and brutal demonstrations and police brutality at University, a common name recurring throughout oppressive authority to date being Mugabe.

That to me is the Mugabe and Zanu pf I know and the reason why I decided to pack it in and left the country in 2000 as the chaotic Zanu pf war veterans led land redistribution exercise was unleashed.

The latest posturing by North Korea, which launched an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) over Japan and 3,700km (2,299 miles) into the sea, threatens world peace

1499272155133 (1)
The latest posturing by North Korea, which launched an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) over Japan, which travelled a distance of 3,700km (2,299 miles) into the sea, is clearly a warning to the US as that is the distance a North Korean missile would need to travel in order to reach US territory and Guam is exactly that distance from North Korea.
 
It is also understood that the rogue territory;s neighbour , South Korea launched its own ballistic missile in response, within six minutes, into the sea, travelling a distance of 250 miles, which is the distance that a South Korean missile would need to travel to hit the North Korean capital.
 
The US and China want Russia and China to reign in the rogue state of North Korea and avert a global war. World powers are divided and the North Korean leader and its brainwashed scientists and supporters know this, so they continue on an unchecked destructive path of building nuclear weapons. The Japanese prime minister has called for a swift response from the international world in order to contain the threat to world peace presented by North Korea’s latest ICBM test.

Activist cleric petitions the US embassy in Harare, challenging the decision to give President Robert Mugabe and his ‘bloated delegation’ visas to attend this year’s United Nations (UN)

pastor-mugadza (1)
ACTIVIST cleric Pastor Patrick Mugadza has petitioned the US embassy in Harare, challenging the decision to give President Robert Mugabe and his ‘bloated delegation’ visas to attend this year’s United Nations (UN) general assembly, NewZimbabwe.com reported.
 
The summit is scheduled for September 19 to 23 and Mugabe is reportedly travelling with a claimed 70-strong delegation, including his entire family.
 
In his petition to the US Harare embassy Wednesday, Pastor Mugadza said the granting of visas to Mugabe and his family is a slap in the face for suffering Zimbabweans.
 
“We have orphans and widows who have nothing to put on the table, and teens who have been pushed into prostitution because of the difficult situation they find themselves in because of the Mugabe regime,” said Mugadza.
 
“This move you have taken will result in the death of people who cannot afford to buy medication while you have given visas to these heartless people to go and do shopping in New York.”
 
The cleric, who has been campaigning for the 93-year-old to step down, said the US government should cancel 50 of the visas issued to Mugabe’s team.
 
“We thought you would stand with us as a suffering nation but we have realized that you are not on the side of the suffering. Having said that, we demand that you cut the number to 20 looters or else we are going to be occupying your embassy soon,” he said.
 
Mugabe is banned from travelling to the US under sanctions imposed by Washington to punish rights abuses by his regime. He can, however, attend meetings of the UN in New York. He is expected to leave Friday for the 2017 UN general assembly.

‘We have to talk about, maybe in certain areas, closing that internet up in some ways’…. Oh freedom of speech, freedom of speech.’ These are foolish people!

The UK terror level has been raised from severe to critical after fifth terror incident in Britain this year alone. The terrorist group IS has claimed responsibility for an improvised bomb with wires attached in a freeze bucket which exploded at Parsons Green in London.
 
The bomb was designed to be activated remotely and not kill the person who planted , which resulted in the make shift bomb not fully detonating. The failure to go off properly, meant that the bomb failed to go off as intended as the use of a timer instead of a suicide bomber on the London, morning rush hour saved many people.
 
This is because people only suffered injuries and no deaths occurred as the bomber wanted to get away and is still on the run. There is a man hunt in the Uk as this is the fifth time this year that a terrorist incident has occurred in London.
in response to , the latest London attacks, the US president Donald Trump allegedly claims that, to stop further terror attacks, the internet must be ‘cut off’ as it is a terrorist ‘recruiting tool’
 
In a further tweet Donald Trump said he would look to increase his muslim travel ban into the United States also saying ‘We have to talk about, maybe in certain areas, closing that internet up in some ways’…. Oh freedom of speech, freedom of speech.’ These are foolish people!’ more news to follow.

GOVERNMENT, through the Ministry of Sport and Recreation Commission has urged Philip Chiyangwa not to take football laws into his own hands but uphold the principles of the game.

Chiyangwa-zifa-01
Following the ugly scenes that degenerated into a scuffle at Rufaro stadium on Sunday, COSAFA and ZIFA president Dr Philip Chiyangwa was quick to rescind Christian Epoupa’s red card he was awarded for headbutting Petr Muduwa.
 
The decision has since sparked outrage among the football fraternity leaving the government at the mercy of weighing in to resolve the despute.
 
” . . . the Minister (of Sport and Recreation) urges all sport administrators who may be involved in dispute resolution to take decisions that do not weaken established enabling structures within the sport and recreation sector,” Sport and Recreation Minister Makhosini Hlongwane said in a statement.
 
“In view of the above, in resolving differences, contestations and protestations that may arise out of sport games, sport administrators are urged to make decisions which inspire confidence to umpires, referees, club executives, sponsors, as well as athletes who are the most important resource of the sport and recreation sector.
 
“The Ministry of Sport and Recreation expresses utmost concern on the continued perpetration of violence in football. To this end, the Minister of Sport and Recreation condemns in the strongest of terms the violence by some spectators and athletes at the Dynamos Highlanders match played on 10 September, 2017 at Rufaro Stadium in Harare.’
 
It remains to be seen if Epoupa will take part in the Sunday’s clash between Dynamos and CAPS United at Rufaro stadium.
