- VICE PRESIDENT RTD GEN CHIWENGA advised to sieze total Zimbabwe power at all costs amid reported growing suspicion by his personal military advisor and confidant, exiled and fallen Ethiopian autarch, Mengistu Haile Mariam,
MDC ALLIANCE LEADER Nelson Chamisa (MDC-T) was in Bedford Britain to address Zimbabweans in Shona in the UK though Zimbabwe is made up of at least 16 National languages officially recognised by the constitution
The rally was attended by a reasonably sized crowd of MDC-T supporters but the young MDC T leader was heavily criticised for failing to address the people in a language that demonstrates he has respect and recognition of the fact that Zimbabwe is made up of at least 16 National languages united around the common language of English.
The absence of an interprettor left many people furious as they felt either left out because they do not speak Shona, or their partners, children and interested parties, were also clearly left out by Chamisa’s Shona language address.
Many felt disrespected and marginalised because of the language challenges.
The images taken show, a sizeable crowd, but I will hasten to warn Zimbabweans, that this is an irrelevant support base, typically anon event in the political arena as Mnangagwa, Zanu pf stalwarts and securocrats have made it clear that there will be no external voting at embassies by Zimbabweans. They have said that if any diaspora Zimbabweans want to vote, they are free to come back to Zimbabwe and register to vote and vote.
Here the clue to why it will not happen, firstly most Zimbabweans in the diaspora were forcibly exiled by Mnangagwa, Zanu pf stalwarts and securocrats , and going to Zimbabwe to register to vote and then to vote , is a minimum of two expensive flights and other costs in Zimbabwe, and even the risk of the oppressive force catching up with the diaspora fo their crimes of defiance to opressive authority.
In the view of www.newzimbabwevision.com, what Chamisa should have been selling to the UK diaspora yesterday, was a demonstration of the MDC Alliance commitment to the diaspora vote, such as declaring, no diaspora vote, no election. However that did not happen and its funny that the same MDC Alliance wants support and funding from the diaspora, while not recognising the importance of the diaspora vote. There are approximately 6 million people based in the diaspora and if allowed to vote, they are the real game changer as they are likely to vote in the majority against Mnangagwa, Zanu pf stalwarts and securocrats.
Mnangagwa, Zanu pf stalwarts and securocrats are desperate to legitimise their power grab and secure a five year mandate to lead Zimbabwe for the next five years and any withdrawal by the MDC ALLIANCE from elections on the basis that they want Electoral Reforms put in place first and the diaspora vote to be facilitated, would wreak havoc into the militarised regime camp and lock any prospect of the business environment opening up. Chamisa by failing to take this route, is simply shooting himself in the foot, because he will only walk into the harmonised 2018 elections to legitimise another fraudulent Mnangagwa, Zanu pf stalwart, military and securocrat victory.
We are already aware that , Mnangagwa earlier this year distributed 52 four wheel drive double cabs to chiefs, and deployed over 2000 soldiers to rural areas, the Zanu pf power base, and its known that this week the government has announced that it is constructing roads to the chiefs homesteads nationwide. Itai Dzamara is still missing, over 5000 nurses were recently dismissed by VP RTD Gen Chiwenga in an employment creation scam where the government overnight turned around to say they can reapply for nursing posts, and right now, the government has promised salary reviews for teachers, to ensure they do not go on strike, yet no figures have been given.
The only thing that they have put in place in line with their mantra of Zimbabwe is open for business is the alleged fact that Mnangagwa has said that the sex enterprise is a good inv=come generator for the economy, not surprising because they have also now lowered the penalty for Dagga, Mbanje, cannabis possession and legitimised the farming of the drug. Mnangagwa, Zanu pf stalwarts and securocrats are to some people, destroying the social fabric of the Zimbabwean society.
www.newzimbabwevision.com, would like to remind readers that we are here to disseminate information to the public, regardless of whether its about MDC T, MDC, Zanu pf , any opposition, leader or other and its understandable that many will be anry , however, we continuously distance ourselves from aligning with any party, because we seek to empower the ordinary street person with information that allows them to make more informed decisions and choices such as voting,…no favours!
Remember that military governments generally come into power by the gun and its folly to assume that Zimbabwe will be given the country on a silver platter by Mnangagwa, Zanu pf stalwarts and securocrats. A clear warning of what we are heading towards is that BHritain, a powerful Western force, has already warmed up to Mnangagwa, Zanu pf stalwarts and securocrats and are ready to roll in with full support if a legitimate regime is established through voting, Russia has already signed up multi billion dollar investment opportunities. Remember that the priority for most nations now is business investments and opportunities for their own citizens, this is business, nothing to do with Zimbabweans,..wake up Zimbabweans! The MDC ALLIANCE must not dare to walk into an obvious election loss then cry foul after losing. They must refuse to go through to election without implementing all the issues I have raised, otherwise they are simply wasting everyone’s time, and donor funds!
US and UBritain do not want Zimbabwe to either be controlled by the Chinese or the Russians, its a case of Western powers over the Eastern bloc influence , so the rush is now to help Mnangagwa, Zanu pf stalwarts and securocrats and establish their authority over the Zimbabwe Republic, even though thye do not like that team. It is however amore stable and established option as compared to the feuding opposition, who afre powerless against a military regime. Wake up Zimbabwe!
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.
Robert Mugabe, Mnangagwa, Zanu pf stalwarts, the military 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, Mnangagwa, Zanu pf stalwarts, the military 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. These are the same people who previously stole the election from Tsvangirai, and people foolishly assume they will walk away tomorrow, from acountry they have liberated twice, first through the liberation war ending in `1979 then in November 2017,..wake up Zimbabwe!
What most Zimbabweans did not realise at that very moment in time, was that, a Chinese ship 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, Mugabe, Mnangagwa, Zanu pf stalwarts, the military 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 Mugabebutchering their kith and kin.
Mugabe, Mnangagwa, Zanu pf stalwarts, the military and securocrats 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.
We all know the army 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. Here Zimbabweans are foolishly thinking, the same people will hand over Zimbabwe to democrats,..wake up Zimbabwe,..they are 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.
To the ‘Discerning Eye, www.newzimbabwevision.com, China is a stumbling bloc to democracy and Mugabe’s controversial ‘Look East ‘policy is simply legitimised crime and corruption which the current Mnangagwa, Zanu pf and military regime will follow. 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, rather than follow, breaking news from credible sources such as www.newzimbabwevision.com.
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 Mnangagwa 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.
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..
These criminals have amassed millions of US$ in wealth and much as we don’t like them, they prefer to have Mnangagwa, Zanu pf stalwarts and securocrats stay in power, 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.
One way of unseating a military regime is , for the MDC ALLIANCE to sit down with Mnangagwa, the Generals including JOC and acknowledging that they did well by fighting for independance and liberating Zimbabweans, and thanking them for land redistribution, blck empowerment, assuring that that lan d redistribution, will not be reversed and only proper land autit exercises will be done to allow, multiple farm ownership to be removed and that land redistributed to deserving people on the waiting list.
These people are guilty of crimes against humanity including gukurahundi, murambatsvina, Chiadzwa , 2008 election violence, and murderous white farmer evictions. They will therefore seek assurances including immunity from prosecution for past crimes, just like what they gave Mugabe, assurance that they will not be stripped of their farms, houses and businesses, secure hefty pensions and heroes acre burial sites amongst other things.
They may still push for underhand positions such as advisory roles to the democratic government, but unless and until, these people are guaranteed such measures, no vote will ever remove them. Its only a settlement agreement or an outright war that can shift the balance of power, but we all don’t want violence, so in order to move Zimbabwe forward, the opposition ,must work out an amicable way forward with the army and stop dreaming that they will remove these people with the ballot. If anything, they are simply going to legitimise another five year Zanu pf stalwart, Mnangagwa securocrat, military and securocrat term in office, therefore stop wasting the people’s time and remove the army with a settlement, then we can all move forward, More news to follow.
