The huge cost of ‘small’ lies http://nehandaradio.com/2018/01/18/huge-cost-small-lies/ http://nehandaradio.com/2018/01/18/huge-cost-small-lies/#comments Thu, 18 Jan 2018 12:21:58 +0000 http://nehandaradio.com/?p=164552 Clearly, government lied when it undertook to reverse Mugabe’s decision to buy cars for the nearly 300 chiefs in this country, which is bad.

Last weekend, President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government reneged on one of its early promises.
By delivering on former President Robert Mugabe’s extravagant promise to hand traditional chiefs vehicles worth $14 million, the new administration went back on its word, raising serious questions about what other nice-sounding promises it is going to fail to deliver on.

In most of Africa, property in terms of land was almost always held under communal tenure.The reasons were cultural but based economically on the need for open access.

Steep prices are a source of discomfort to any serving head of State because they can easily lead to civil disturbances as has been witnessed in many African and Latin American countries.

All eyes are on Zimbabwe. President Emmerson Mnangagwa is in the same situation that Robert Mugabe was in, 1980, but with one proviso. In 1980 the world lay at Mugabe’s feet and he could do no wrong. He was walking on water.

Patrick Zhuwao - "This second instalment of the Zhuwao Brief Reloaded (ZBR) comes in a week that has seen two notably interesting events that talk to the theme of the #2018Resistance. The first one was the statement issued by the MDC-T Youth Assembly wherein they said “Mnangagwa will never fool us” as they called for the restoration of legitimacy. The second one was the highly anticipated HardTalk interview of Professor Jonathan Moyo, and in particular the coup conspirators and terrorist junta’s efforts to postpone elections for three years."

Don Chigumba - The Zimbabwe Independent Newspaper of 05th January 2018 published an article claiming that the sociology department of the University of Zimbabwe sent a petition to Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (Zacc) requesting it to investigate, revoke and nullify Grace Mugabe's PhD.

This piece seeks to clarify on two issues; first, denounce the procedure being taken by the sociology department of University of Zimbabwe and finally, to educate the educated university professors about the correct procedures to follow in case of Amai Grace Mugabe's PhD Revocation.

#Zimbabwe Elections: A case for postponement – Lloyd Msipa http://nehandaradio.com/2018/01/13/zimbabwe-elections-case-postponement-lloyd-msipa/ http://nehandaradio.com/2018/01/13/zimbabwe-elections-case-postponement-lloyd-msipa/#comments Sat, 13 Jan 2018 19:07:33 +0000 http://nehandaradio.com/?p=164057 Lloyd Msipa

Lloyd Msipa - Zimbabwe is due to go for national elections this year 2018. The elections come fast in the heels of a power transfer within Zanu PF, with Emmerson Mnangagwa replacing Robert Mugabe as president of Zimbabwe and first secretary of the party Zanu PF. Before this, we were all resigned to the fact that Robert Mugabe would be running for president at a ripe old age of 94. It was not to be.

The MDC’s youth and women’s assemblies should not behave like leagues of the “old” Zanu PF who, against all logic, wanted former President Robert Mugabe to remain party candidate for this year’s election despite his advanced age and ill health.

Whitlaw Mugwiji - Good morning Zimbabwe and complements of the new year. It has been a while since we last had a conversation. A lot has transpired during my absence. 2017, could not have ended any better. I cannot fathom anything better than the fall of the incompetent and corrupt Robert Mugabe and his ignoramus wife.

Eddie Cross - For all of us we must accept that this agenda is also in our interests – even if we are in the opposition. These are national and not parochial problems that must be tackled if any of us are going to have any sort of future. The MDC and especially Morgan Tsvangirai have brought democracy back to Zimbabwe and restored our rights as a people. But right now, with his illness, other than offering opposition and curbing the excesses of any future government, we are probably stuck with ED and that is our dilemma. We have no choice but to make it work.
