Chin’ono: Zimbabweans Enjoy Being Oppressed

Prominent Zimbabwean journalist and documentary filmmaker, Hopewell Chin’ono, says the reason why Zimbabweans remain oppressed is that they are happy with the status quo. Zimbabwe has been under uninterrupted ZANU PF rule since independence from Britain in 1980. From 2009 to 2013 the country was under a ZANU PF and MDC-T coalition government but the opposition party was a junior partner, with no control over defence and security as well as foreign affairs. In a Facebook post on Wednesday, Chin’ono said Zimbabweans’ stupidity is shown by their desire to dance…

Zimbabwe’s Ruling Elite “Roving Bandits” – Biti

Former Finance Minister Tendai Biti (MDC), has described Zimbabwe’s ruling elite as “roving bandits” who are haemorrhaging the country of its wealth through corruption.

Said Biti: Corruption in Zimbabwe is dominated by the roving bandits. The challenge with the Zimbabwean roving bandits is that they leave nothing for the ordinary citizen. That is why Zimbabwe is extremely poor when it is generating…

I do not know whether I can ever reiterate this point enough. History is an accumulation of past events, which can never be narrated selectively. As a lover of history, I find it deceptive to attempt to distort history for…

According to Ringisai Chikohomero, a research consultant at the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) based in Pretoria, South Africa, Mnangagwa had failed to live up to his mantra of a “new dispensation”. “Attempts to extend the chief justice’s term show a disregard for the judiciary and for fixing the country’s tattered reputation. “Mnangagwa’s regime continues to…
