Zimbabwe’s Former minister a.k.a Zanu-PF spin doctor Professor Jonathan Moyo has called on the United Nations to invade Zimbabwe in order to protect citizens from the state brutality inflicted upon MDC Alliance supporters, such as those oppressed through violent Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) brutality on Friday 16 August 2019.
Its interesting that with Zimbabwe’s massively tarnished image at World Bank which is owed US$1,5 billion, African Development Bank US$702 million, European Investment Bank US$309 million and other multilaterals by Zimbabwe, the militarised Mnangagwa Zanu pf regime, intends to borrow US$1,9 billion from the Group of 7 industrialised nations to clear debts to the African Development Bank (AfDB) and World Bank, Finance and Economic Development..
The Group of Seven or G7 wealthy nations are France, Italy, Canada, Germany, United States, Japan and United Kingdom.
We all know that the debt clearing with these multilateral lenders is key for Zimbabwe economic revival as it will open avenues for fresh concessional funding to support Zimbabwe’s external position, currently led by runaway inflation.
Zimbabwe currently has no source of funding as it cannot get fresh credit from any of IMF, AfDB and WB due to overdue arrears with these institutions. Zimbabwe at present owes IMF US$110 arrears and Zimbabwe’s total external public and publicly guaranteed debt is US$8,5 billion; as at the end of June 2019.
Effectively, Zimbabwe owes multilateral institutions a total of US$2,5 billion,as follows, the World Bank is owed US$1,5 billion, African Development Bank US$702 million, European Investment Bank US$309 million and other multilaterals US$74 million.
As at the end of June 2019, Zimbabwe’s total bilateral debt amounted to US$5,5 billion, with Paris Club creditors accounting for US$3,5 billion and non-Paris Club US$1,6 billion.
Debt clearance with the IMF, WB and AfDB and other key global lenders guides the positions of these leading multilateral lenders, meaning that defaulting borrowers have no acces to new credit from anyone.
Given this background, the situation can only get worse as the Zimbabwe’s Former minister a.k.a Zanu-PF spin doctor Professor Jonathan Moyo has called on the United Nations to invade Zimbabwe in order to protect citizens from the state brutality inflicted upon MDC Alliance supporters, such as those oppressed through violent Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) brutality on Friday 16 August 2019.
Professor Moyo calls were in response to Saturday calls by the new Sadc region chairperson and Tanzanian President John Magufuli for Western countries to lift sanctions on Zimbabwe .
According to Jonathan Moyo on his Twitte
r page,the international community must protect Zimbabwe under the Responsibility to Protect doctrine popularly known as R2P.
“The silence of #SadcSummit2019 on military atrocities, abductions and violence to block peaceful demonstrations makes #Sadc complicit to State crimes against humanity in Zimbabwe and leaves the international community with little choice but to exercise the responsibility to protect,” said Prof Moyo.
The Responsibility to Protect (R2P) is a principle aimed at the protection of the world’s most vulnerable populations from the most heinous international crimes: genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity.
R2P allows for the use of force under Chapter VII of the UN Charter.
www.newzimbabwevision.com states that, it is obvious that the militarised Mnangagwa Zanu pf regime is not going anywhere soon, but while the High Court banned the MDC Mother of all protest on 16 August 2019, Zimbabweans managed to make the UN sit up at attention as demonstrated by the UN statement indicating that Zimbabwe’s dire economic situation is now impacting negatively on the realization of the economic and social rights of millions of Zimbabweans.
The UN went on to state that, the Organisation understands that 16 August 2019 planned protests in Harare had been cancelled by the organisers, after a High Court decision to uphold a Government ban on MDC protests.
The traditional brutal Zimbabwe Republic Police swiftly , violently
dispersed crowds of gathered protesters, so, the UN urged militarised Mnangagwa regime to seek ways to continuously engage with the Zimbabwean population over their legitimate grievances on the economic situation, and to stop cracking down on peaceful protestors.
The UN added that, if protestss go ahead they call upon the security forces and protesters to ensure they proceed calmly and without any violence.
They further indicated that the UN are deeply concerned by the socio-economic crisis that continues to unfold in Zimbabwe, including the fact that the dire economic situation is now impacting negatively on the realization of the economic and social rights of millions of Zimbabweans.
Long-term neglect and structural deficiencies have contributed to hyperinflation, resulting in soaring prices for fuel, food, transport and health services, which is having a dramatic impact on the population, and particularly on marginalized working-class people. The fact that key commodities and services have become less affordable for poor families, means there is an increasing need for strong social protection measures.
The economic crisis is converging with the impact of cyclone Idai that hit Zimbabwe last March, as well as the El Niño-induced drought, to create a rapidly deteriorating humanitarian situation, with the result that around five million Zimbabweans, or one third of the total population of 16 million people, are now estimated to be in need of humanitarian aid.
www.newzimbabwevision.com states that, on one hand, the attention and pressure brought upon the UN by the suffering of Zimbabweans under the militarised Mnangagwa regime, will on hand force the Western World to revist the sanctions regime upon Zimbabwe and further strengthen economic sanctions, tighten movement restrictions uppon corrupt Mnangagwa regime and military, further block any financial flows from International sources, make it difficult if not impossible for Zimbabwe to trade or recieve anything from outside.
The reality is that Zimbabweans need to fully brace for the real and pending difficulties ahead, including hyper inflation, empty shops, fuel shortages and empty shops, unemployment, no electricity and more.Yes we are now heading for difficult times for Zimbabwe, infact much as we dislike Mugabe, some could even begin to see the past as better than what Mnangagwa is inflicting upon the people of Zimbabwe.
On a positive note, the UN, EU, Sadcc, AU and other International Organisations with interests in the Zimbabwe saga, will likely be now forced to act in order to save Zimbabwe from total collapse, famine, civil war by stepping in with a multi national peace keeping force to remove the military regime, free the suffering Zimbabweans and install a caretaker government to move Zimbabwe from total oblivion under the blood thirsty heartless militarised Mnangagwa regime.
