Sudan’s President Omar Al-Bashir has arrived in Sudan  within the last hour having flown out of South Africa from Waterkloof Airbase, despite an outstanding warrant of arrest issued by ICC and a court order to bar his departure from South Africa whilst a decision was being made on whether or not to arrest him.

President Omar al-Bashir, arrived in South Africa to attend the  African Union, (AU) Summit  despite the ICC warrant of arrest for genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity in Darfur.

The high Court in South Africa had issued a court order barring Omar Al bashir’s departure from South Africa whilst a decision was being made on whether or not to arrest him today and all ports wre reportedly alerted about this , including the Waterkloof Military Airbase from which he safely  departed from.

Sudan’s President Omar Al-Bashir has arrived safely in Sudan, whilst South Africa’s high court has now found itself in conflict with the Executive over the government’s failure to observe the court’s orders to ensure that President Omar Al-Bashir did not leave South Africa whilst a decision was being made.

It is evident that South Africa’s government may have taken advantage of  a technicality in the law to undermine or circumvent  the High court order thus affording  al-Bashir to escape arrest, by departing from a South African National Defence Force (SANDF) air base.

 

 

The Southern African Litigation Centre (SALC) had managed to obtain a court interim order barring his departure from South Africa pending arrest on the ICC warrant of arrest, and because South Africa  is a signatory to the Rome Statute ,  it is duty bound to enforce the warrant. Sibusiso Ngwenya.

Zimbabweans who lost savings at the height of the hyperinflation in 2009 which saw the collapse of the Z$ and unofficial adoption of a multi currency system with the use of the South African Rand and US$ will be able to exchange their Z$ account balances from Monday until September 2015 at a rate of Z$175 quadrillion to US$5.

This exercise was pre empted by the intriduction of Bond coins into circulation valued at US$10million or £6,4 million but the coins have not been embraced by the Zimbabwean consumers as they fear this is a ploy to bring back the worthless Zimbabwe dollar by Robert Mugabe’s Zanu PF regime.

Mugabe’s government corruption and mismanagement of the economy fuelled the hyper inflation even though Mugabe and his state propaganda machinery have always sought to blame the west.

Many Zimbabweans will rush to do the trade tomorrow but be warned that many will go back home on foot as what they will receive will not be adequate to cover transport costs. Sibusiso Ngwenya.
