*President of Zimbabwe Cde E.D Mnangagwa Address:*

Less than a month after laying to rest five national heroes, we are gathered again to mourn yet another national hero. On behalf of Government and the Ruling Party, we convey our sincere condolences to the Nyikayaramba family.

Cde Nyikayaramba was one of us and indeed was a comrade in arms. After the Liberation Struggle, he was appointed to various portfolios as he rose up the ranks in the military. He succumbed to the ruthless Covid 19 pandemic.

The late national hero collaborated with the Liberation comrades upon joining them. He was always powered by discipline and energy to fight the white regime.

He was attested into Zimbabwe National Army where he rose up the ranks till he reached the rank of Lieutenant General on his retirement in 2017.

The late National Hero, Lieutenant General Retired, Nyikayaramba was deployed in Mozambique as the Ambassador till he succumbed to Covid 19.

Our National Hero left a legacy of humility and servant leadership. Let us preserve the legacy left by Cde Nyikayaramba and other Heroes and Heroines. Let us oppose and shun corruption and citizens must resist to be used by those with personal, myopic agendas.

We are in the thick fight against Covid 19 pandemic. Government continues to assess the threat posed by the pandemic and implements measures to combat the pandemic.

We appreciate the Chinese Government for the donations of the Covid 19 vaccines. Covid 19 is a global pandemic which knows no boundary. The Government of Zimbabwe has deliberated that the Covid19 vaccines will be accessible to all citizens free of charge.

Cde Nyikayaramba played a pivotal role in the rollout of the Command Agriculture. Pfumvudza programme has produced positive results and equally commercial farmers have done well this season. We are looking at a possible bumper harvest this season.

PARLIAMENT will reconvene on Tuesday next week after resolving to extend the adjournment of House business on account of current level four national lockdown.

The National Assembly sat for the first time this year on Tuesday following the annual festive season break, which began on December 19.

The House resolved, during the brief session, to postpone sittings until the pronouncement of a review of the current lockdown restrictions, which lapse on February 15.

The Senate also met for a brief token sitting a fortnight ago and agreed to resume business on February 16.

Clerk of Parliament Mr Kennedy Chokuda told The Sunday Mail that both Houses will commence sitting after the announcement of revised lockdown measures expected before February 15.

He said Parliamentarians will undergo Covid-19 screening as and when necessary.

“Business of Parliament and how it will be managed will be informed by the revised lockdown arrangements as pronounced,” said Mr Chokuda.

“This will continue into the future as it allows the business of Parliament to continue while complying with Covid-19 regulations.

“Disinfection of the Parliament building, temperature screening and provision of hand sanitisation facilities are some of the measures that have been adopted to curb the spread of the virus.

“In addition, we have also adopted remote working to reduce the numbers of staff present within the building at any one time.

“Members and staff have also been provided with reusable masks and these will be replaced constantly to ensure they are protected.”

He said Parliament had adopted virtual sittings for both Houses and committees as part of mitigation measures.

At the front there was no death, only ‘injuries’
Cde Tsodzo

IN this, the second instalment of a conversation between GARIKAI MAZARA and Cde Pepukai, born Nyembesi Judith Tsodzo, she goes through the death of Zanu chairman Herbert Chitepo, the détente period, the disturbances at Mboroma and the fast-track training at Chimbichimbi. Read on . . .

Q: Any highlights from your stay at Chifombo?
A: This was the place where we first met Teurai Ropa Nhongo (Joice Mujuru) and her group in December 1974 when they were coming from Nachingwea, Tanzania. This was probably the first group of women to be trained under Zanu.
Then as fate would have it, in March 1975 we woke up to the news that Cde Herbert Chitepo had died in a bomb blast. This we got through the political commissars, because it was part of their duties to monitor news, follow up on what was happening at the front and then inform us. Cde Chitepo’s death was a blow, it was felt across the camp.
But before I get there, before I talk much about Cde Chitepo’s death, when I went to war the slogan was, “Pamberi naCde Ndabaningi Sithole”, for he was the leader of Zanu. By this time it was just Zanu, without the PF, there was Zapu, there was NDP and there was Frolizi. So I joined the liberation under the leadership of Cde Sithole. When we received the news of Cde Chitepo’s demise, Kenneth Kaunda, then a very powerful and influential Frontline states leader, ordered that the liberation struggle had to stop to allow investigations into who killed Cde Chitepo.
Then one morning, a convoy of buses came to take us to Mboroma, a game park on the Mchinga range. But we were not alone as ZIPRA, NDP and Frolizi forces were also there. Only Zanu or Zanla had female combatants, as for NDP and Frolizi, these were very small groups.

Peter Ndoro
Stembile Mpofu

A few days ago, I wandered into a Twitter discussion between Peter Ndoro and a gentleman called Selwyn Nkomo and various other people.

The discussion I stumbled upon was about the apparent bias in SABC’s reporting on Zimbabwe.

Nkomo’s argument was that the biased reporting was not doing Zimbabwe and its people any good and may actually have the effect of making things worse for ordinary people.

An opposing view from another contributor was that he was happy with SABC because they presented a counter-narrative to ZBC, which he said was biased.

My take was, if we condemn bias in ZBC, then we should do the same with SABC because two wrongs do not make a right.

In response, Peter Ndoro tweeted the following: “Stembile, what do you actually want? What can we do to make life better for people? All I know is that life for the average Zimbabwean is worse now than it was in 1980 and getting worse. What do we need to do as media and as concerned people to make things better? Help us.”

This response was refreshing, given that social media is a designated boxing ring. Because of this, I felt his request was genuine and required me to sit and think and give time to my response. I did and these were my thoughts in response to the conversation.

Deteriorating living standards

You point out that Zimbabwe’s infrastructure has deteriorated over the years, this is undeniable. Our transport system, both road and rail, is not in the best of shape. This is the same with our hospitals and schools. All have been adversely affected by the effects of both corruption and the impact of sanctions on the economy.

The Government is fighting corruption head-on. We are yet to see this story featured on SABC.

PRESIDENT Mnangagwa yesterday conferred national hero status on the late Manicaland Provincial Affairs and Devolution Minister Dr Ellen Gwaradzimba (60) and founding nationalist and Zanu PF Central Committee member Cde Morton Dizzy Paul Malianga (91) who both died on Friday.

Dr Gwaradzimba succumbed to Covid-19 while Cde Malianga had been unwell for some time.

Zanu PF National Chairperson, who is also Defence and War Veterans Affairs Minister, Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri, delivered the President’s message to the Gwaradzimba and Malianga families at their respective Highlands and Greystone Park homes in Harare yesterday.

Minister Muchinguri-Kashiri said the two national heroes would be buried at the National Heroes Acre on a date to be advised.

She said the President and the party saw it befitting to honour the late comrades as national heroes for the contributions they made to liberate the country.

The Ministries of Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage and Health and Child Care had started working on the modalities and logistics on how the burial of the two will be conducted.

Speaking at the late Cde Malianga’s home, Minister Muchinguri-Kashiri described the late cadre as a towering figure who pioneered nationalist politics in the 1950s.

Cde Malianga was founding president of the National Democratic Party at its formation in 1959. After the NDP was banned in December 1961, he became Zapu Secretary for Public Affairs in 1961.

Zanu PF slates US envoy
Sunday Mail Reporter

United States of America’s envoy to Zimbabwe Ambassador Brian Nichols’ failure to denounce the violent insurrection that happened at Capitol Hill in Washington DC on January 6 — killing five people and injuring scores others — smacks of “open hypocrisy”, ZANU PF has said.

In a statement yesterday, the ruling party’s spokesperson, Ambassador Simon Khaya Moyo, said it was ironic that the diplomat would chose to remain tight-lipped despite his rabid reactions to comparable opposition-led violent protests that have plagued the country in the past.

The United States Embassy in Harare has often courted Government’s ire by issuing statements that are often deemed undiplomatic.

Supporters of outgoing US president Donald Trump stormed congress on the day it was meeting to certify results of the November presidential elections, in an attempted insurrection that was designed to keep in power the incumbent, who claims the elections were massively rigged.

“One shudders to think what could have happened in the Third World if any contestant to a political office had failed to concede defeat as happened in the USA in the numerous elections which have been held to date,” said Amb Khaya Moyo.

“Further, one would have expected the normally outspoken US Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Brian Nichols, to lambast these anomalous events in his native country.

“Ambassador Nichols’ open hypocrisy, where he negatively postures against actions by other sovereign states’ security forces to bring normalcy and order in their jurisdiction, deserves repudiation and scorn. We all expected him to at least comment on the actions of these hooligans and vandals, and the subsequent interventions by that country’s security forces.”

US ‘coup’: America loses moral right to sanction Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa

from DANAI MWARUMBWA in Harare, Zimbabwe
HARARE, (CAJ News) – FOLLOWING unprecedented scenes tantamount to an attempted coup in the United States (US), Zimbabwean President, Emmerson Mnangagwa, has lamented the double standards by the American government.

This follows President Donald Trump’s supporters invading the Capitol, which is the legislative seat of the US government, on Wednesday.

The militants violently stormed the ionic building in Washington during the counting of electoral college votes for the 2020 presidential election, which Trump lost to Joe Biden in November.

Mnangagwa noted that earlier last year, Trump extended economic sanctions placed on Zimbabwe, citing concerns about the Southern African country’s democracy.

“Yesterday’s (Wednesday’s) events showed that the US has no moral right to punish another nation under the guise of upholding democracy,” Mnangagwa stated.

He added, “These sanctions must end.”

Sanctions are to an extent blamed for the economic and political problems afflicting Zimbabwe.

Mnangagwa congratulated President-elect Biden, who assumes office on January 20.

“Zimbabwe is, as it always has been, ready to work together as friends and partners with the US for the benefit of both our peoples,” he reiterated.

Relations between US and Zimbabwe have been strained since the late 1980s when America discontinue bilateral aid to Zimbabwe as a result of “continuing pattern of uncivil and undiplomatic statements and actions by the Government of Zimbabwe in the United Nations and elsewhere.”

Then, Zimbabwe was under Robert Mugabe and US under Ronald Reagan. Both are late.

The US government of George Bush Jnr imposed economic sanctions on the Southern African country under the so-called Zimbabwe Democracy and Economic Recovery Act.

T E R R I F Y I N G!!!!! THE ENTIRE BURKINA FASO GOVERNMENT RESIGNS Bill Gates Dirty Tricks in Burkina Faso and Nigeria, by Sussy Vozniak, reporter for Intelicor Press, Vienna. Paris: Secret documents leaked on the fiasco in Burkina Faso expose troubling information on the undercover activities of the American Multi-Billionaire Bill Gates in the small African nation and across the region. Intelicor veterans in Paris express unease as the Burkinabe government led by Prime Minister Paul Kaba Thieba resigned A leading Intelicor veteran thinks that the reason why President Roch Marc Christian Kabore demanded the resignation of the Prime Minister is related to the matter of the proposed release of genetically modified (GMO) mosquitoes in Burkina Faso under the sponsorship of Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The story began in January 2018, when Bill Gates pledged USD $45 million to the health initiative in Burkina Faso. Some felt that the funds were a decoy to cover bribery to top government officials for allowing the program to release the GMO mosquitoes in Burkina Faso. The GMO mosquitoes were programmed at Imperial College London under a grant from Bill Gates to sterilize natural mosquitoes and humans across the African continent over time The terrifying news of the secret project for Human Sterilization of Africans with GMO mosquitoes alarmed African leaders, who quickly came down hard on President Kabore forcing him to act. Similar teams are working in Mali and Uganda. The homing endonuclease gene (HEG) that sterilizes the female mosquitoes also could be passed through saliva to humans during bites and the human in turn could pass it on through sexual intercourse to another human, in a cascade that could have the entire Black Continent exterminated before anything could be done
TEAM-ZANU-PF NEWS BULLETIN ED intercedes for love, peace and unity 22 OCT, 2019 - 00:10 0 COMMENTS ED intercedes for love, peace and unity President Mnangagwa, First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa, Vice President Kembo Mohadi, Bishop Veronica Kwati (far left) and Dr Lucky Mutanda (right) pray during the National Day of Prayer launch at State House yesterday.— Picture: John Manzongo Farirai Machivenyika Senior Reporter President Mnangagwa yesterday adjourned a rescheduled Cabinet meeting to attend the launch of the National Day of Prayer at State House where he urged churches to pray for peace and unity. Most Cabinet ministers also attended the launch of the National Day of Prayer, which is the brainchild of First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa. Over 300 denominations were represented at the launch that was attended by over 1 000 people. “We have gathered here at State House not to celebrate the First Family, but to pray to God about the challenges we are facing because He is the only one who can solve them. When I was inaugurated as President last year, I preached for there to be peace, love, unity and harmony in the country and that is what I still preach today when I get the chance,” said President Mnangagwa. “We want peace, love, harmony and a united country. We should not discriminate against each other. I also know that these are the virtues that are also promoted by the Church.” The President said Government would adhere to the dictates of the Constitution that guarantees freedom of religion. He said churches have their right to worship freely and Government respects that provision because if a nation follows Jesus Christ’s teachings, there will be no killing of each other and damaging other people’s property. President Mnangagwa said God was the one who appointed leaders, and the leaders should know that the people they lead belong to God. “However, God does not come to directly appoint individuals as leaders but appoints them through the people. “We have different races across the world and each one of them was given their own country and resources. However, we have other nations that are not satisfied with what God gave them and want to find benefit from other nations’ resources. “This is how conflicts happen between nations; that is why we always pray that each nation benefits from its resources,” said President Mnangagwa. Turning to the issue of political dialogue, the President reiterated his position that he was open to talking to anyone through the Political Actors Dialogue Forum (POLAD). “We have our dialogue as political parties at this place and my arms are stretched to say every political party should come and we build our nation. We are all Zimbabweans, we might get assistance from other nations but we all remain Zimbabweans. “So as churches, pray for there to be peace and harmony in the country,” he said. President Mnangagwa saluted the churches for organising the National Day of Prayer. “I have been at this place since 1980 and I want to tell you that such a thing has not happened before,” he said. He added that the church was free to organise regular prayer meetings at State House whenever they needed. Meanwhile, President Mnangagwa introduced the Cabinet members to the congregants that attended yesterday’s prayer meeting. There were also banners on display at the event promoting the Government’s devolution policy. The banners highlighted the various natural resources found in each of the country’s 10 provinces that could be exploited for the benefit of the respective communities.
TEAM-ZANU-PF NEWS BULLETIN Friday public holiday 22 OCT, 2019 - 00:10 0 COMMENTS Friday public holiday Minister Murwira Zvamaida Murwira Senior Reporter Government has declared Friday, October 25, a public holiday to allow people to attend the Sadc-initiated regional day of solidarity against sanctions on Zimbabwe, whose main event is slated for the National Sports Stadium in Harare. This follows a decision by the Sadc summit held in Tanzania in August this year to set the day aside for solidarity marches across the region to denounce illegal sanctions imposed by the United States (US) and the European Union (EU). The public holiday was announced last night by Acting Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Professor Amon Murwira while addressing journalists on the 37th Cabinet decision matrix yesterday. “Cabinet received an update on the Friday October 25, 2019 SADC Anti-Sanctions Day from Honourable Vice President Kembo Mohadi. The marchers are expected to assemble at Robert Mugabe Square by 6am, from where they will proceed to the National Sports Stadium at 8am. Highlights of events scheduled to take place at the National Sports Stadium will include entertainment; solidarity messages by various national and international presenters; presentation of research findings on the background and impact of the illegal sanctions; a soccer match between Dynamos and Highlanders football clubs; and the anti-sanctions gala to run from 6pm on the same day till the following morning,” said Minister Murwira, who is also Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development Minister. “Similar activities are expected to take place in various provincial and district centres throughout the country. To further amplify the importance of this day to the economic emancipation and well-being of Zimbabwe, Friday October 25, 2019 shall be declared an official public holiday. “The general public will be advised of more details of logistical arrangements in the build-up to the occasion. We, therefore, wish to appeal to all Zimbabweans across the board to come in their numbers and to actively participate towards the success of this grand and noble initiative.”
TEAM-ZANU-PF NEWS BULLETIN Cabinet receives 2020 Budget Strategy Paper 22 OCT, 2019 - 00:10 0 COMMENTS Cabinet receives 2020 Budget Strategy Paper Prof Ncube Africa Moyo Deputy News Editor Cabinet yesterday received the 2020 proposed Budget Strategy Paper that was presented by Finance and Economic Development Minister Professor Mthuli Ncube. This was said by Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development Minister Professor Amon Murwira while briefing journalists in Harare after yesterday’s Cabinet meeting. He was representing Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Monica Mutsvangwa. “Cabinet received the 2020 proposed Budget Strategy Paper as presented by the Minister of Finance and Economic Development,” he said. “The Minister (Prof Ncube)’s presentation took note of the ongoing reforms which are premised on the 2019 national Budget theme — Austerity for Prosperity as outlined in the Transitional Stabilisation Programme (TSP). “Notable milestones in this regard include fiscal consolidation, monetary policy restoration, liberalisation of the foreign exchange market, re-engagement and a number of governance and structural reforms aimed at improving the business environment and to support the productive sectors.” Prof Murwira said the reforms present a “firm pedestal” for the rebound of the country’s economy from next year and beyond. The 2020 Budget Strategy Paper is premised on the understanding that the austerity phase of the reforms will be over by the end of the year, thereby ushering in the era of economic growth and productivity. Prof Murwira said the Strategy Paper took note of the fact that this year, the economy faced “severe exogenous shocks” arising from the El Nino-induced drought and Cyclone Idai, which constrained agricultural activities and electricity generation, bringing about general under-performance of the economy. Government projects the economy to grow by 4,6 percent next year. Further, price increases which currently present a major challenge are expected to stabilise on the back of continued implementation of fiscal and monetary reforms, supported by structural and supply side measures. Prof Murwira said the 2020 National Budget will seek to consolidate the macro-fiscal stabilisation gains secured in 2019. “However, the strategic focus of the Budget thrust will now be anchored on the following objectives: growth and productivity; job creation; competitiveness; and promotion of more sustained and shared development. “Also of importance is the need for a more comprehensive and well-coordinated approach to the implementation of the country’s debt arrears clearance programme,” said Prof Murwira. He added that going forward, Government’s borrowing programme shall be coordinated in order to align the country’s re-engagement to the international financial institutions’ lending policies. “In this regard, completion of the Staff Monitored Programme will be accorded top priority,” said Prof Murwira.
