(Mugabe Rambled Through A  ‘Cents-less’ , Maligned Thirty  Minute, Ten Point Plan)-Welshman Ncube

“President Mugabe deliberately evaded the Eleventh Point because he resents and despises effective democracy.” EACH one of us – during our childhood or as teenagers – have at one time or another knocked our big toe against a stone (ukukhubeka, kugumbugwa), banged our heads against the corner of an open window, got a finger squeezed by a closing door or knocked an elbow against a hard surface. In all four circumstances, the result is always…

BY THE the time you read this piece, the Parliament of Zimbabwe would have passed the Labour (Amendment) Bill, 2015. It seeks to solve a labour problem for which many blame either the Supreme Court or overzealous employers said to have unscrupulously taken advantage of the Supreme Court ruling on notice termination of employment to engage in mass dismissals of employees without compensation. I have read gloatingly provocative postings online by Zanu PF mandarins calling…

‘Job Cuts Will Raise Domestic Violence, Early Marriages, Prostitution,HIV &AIDS Crisis’-MDC

THE Welshman Ncube-led MDC party has warned that, if not stopped, ongoing job cuts will likely increase prostitution, child marriages and domestic violence. Over 20,000 workers have been fired across the country over the past three weeks following a Supreme Court ruling that allows employers to terminate workers’ contracts on three months’ notice and without retrenchment packages.

Welshman Ncube on Friday: Who Really is an ‘Ordinary’ Zimbabwean?

Welshman Ncube on Friday: Who Really is an ‘Ordinary’ Zimbabwean?

  A few years ago, I heard an Afro American rhythm and blues singer named John Legend sing this about ordinary people: ‘We’re just ordinary people. We don’t know which way to go. Cuz we’re ordinary people. Maybe we should take it slow…’ In my long experience as lawyer and politician, I have heard, on numerous occasions, politicians habitually use the ‘ordinary Zimbabweans’ phrase.  This ‘amorphous’, almost legendary demographic group attracts both attention and pity…
