July 16, 2018 3:51 PM Chigumba reminds me of Tobaiwa Mudede

Priscilla Chigumba reminds me of Tobaiwa Mudede – arrogant, Zanu PF sympathiser. A man who presided over biased elections for years. What Mnangagwa fails to realise is that he is a coup president. Noone elected him. He has no legitimacy. He is one of the most unelectable politicians in the country. He inspires no one except those hardcore Zanu supporters 45

July 12, 2018 1:43 PM Why young people will vote for Chamisa: Zhuwao

Franz Fannon said that every “generation must discover its mission, fulfil it or betray it”. Zimbabwe’s young people have discovered that their generational mission is to transition Zimbabwe from the 1st Republic to the 2nd Republic.

Lord Carrington, Margaret Thatcher’s Foreign minister and one of the chief architects of a peaceful outcome to the 1979 Lancaster House Conference that ushered Zimbabwe’s independence, has died.

July 10, 2018 1:16 PM Chamisa battling Mnangagwa’s soft dictatorship

I am afraid the MDC Alliance appears oblivious to the mammoth political fraud in the electoral making. As things stand, the opposition grouping not only runs the horrifying risk of losing a massive chunk of democratic credibility through participating in a sham poll – which is practically impossible to win – but also losing an election which the electoral 30

As we report elsewhere in this issue, MDC Alliance presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa has withdrawn his court challenge against Thokozani Khupe over the use of the MDC name, symbols and logos. Had this occurred at another time, which is not towards elections, Chamisa’s decision would have been sweet music to the ears of thousands of the opposition 34

July 1, 2018 5:49 AM Chamisa goes to Israel

MDC-Alliance presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa last week took a break from his campaign schedule to make a “private trip” to Israel, which he said was meant to strengthen his Christian beliefs. Chamisa (40) is among the 23 presidential candidates vying for the country’s top job and has used his strong Christian background, being a pastor, to rally 16
