Zanu PF Conmen Conned: Matsotsi Haangerani – Rimwe Rinorumwa Chete!

January 19, 2013 in Uncategorized

“ZANU PF has launched an investigation into alleged diamond fraud involving five of its officials, who have exposed the party’s control of the Chiadzwa diamond fields,” S W Radio Africa reported.

“The case involves more than US$750, 000 that the five party members allegedly managed to convince companies mining at Chiadzwa to hand over for ZANU PF activities. The money was then reportedly used in part to fund their personal lives.”

The report shows there is a torrent of dirty money flowing through State House and Zanu PF Offices. There stakes are simply too high for the tyrant and his cronies to allow free and fair elections and see all this dirty money dry up!

What had the five Zanu PF Officials done to get US$ 750 000 from these two companies other than flash their party cards? Nothing! The companies were dolling out all this money because they were granted very generous rights mining rights by the party knowing fully well there will be bribes to be paid. The five were there to collect the bribes.

These companies are racking in billions of dollars the sums the five asked for is chicken feed. Indeed the two companies knew straight away the five officials wanted the money for personal use and not for Zanu PF party’s use. The companies also knew there will be hundreds other party officials knocked at their door making similar demands that was why these companies paid the five the chicken feed but made sure Zanu PF big wigs got to know about this.

Zanu PF big wigs are furious with the five because they know these companies would not have dared to make anything less than US$ 1 billion donation. After this debacle the party will be embarrassed to make fresh demands.

As we say in Shona; “Matsotsi haangerai – rimwe ritorumwa chete!” Two crooks cannot shave each other – one will always cut the other or worse with a slit throat! It is interesting to note that many times it is Zanu PF officials have had to nurse cut faces.

Remember the story of Grace Mugabe paying US$ 1 million for new Lorries only to receive Chairman Mao Long Match relics! She was furious and had the drivers who delivered the Lorries from SA detained but in the end had to release them. She is not a registered dealer; the whole deal stunk of corruption. And in the end she was conned!

Then there is the story of the multimillion dollar house the Mugabes bought in the Far East. They did not want the property bought in their name for obvious reasons; when they tried to do so latter, the agent insisted HE was the owner!

The truth is whatever millions or billions Mugabe and Zanu PF make out of all this corrupt wheelie dealings  – a very significant amount of which they are cheated of, as we can see – the crooks they are dealing with make 1000s or 100 000s times more than them! These crooks push up their markup 1000 times because they know the regime is desperate for money and no honest companies would want to do business in such mudded waters.

The biggest loser in all this corruption and intrigue are the ordinary citizens. Withou the corruption the wealth generated from honest business activities would be to pay for a decent education and health service for all and to buy food for the 1.6 million now totally dependent on UN Aid!

Instead the torrent of dirty money flowing through Chibuku House is being used to finance world class football player lifestyles for the ruling elite and to finance Zanu PF’s campaign of intimidation, beatings, rape and murder to retain power at all cost. Zimbabwe’s diamond wealth, rich lands, etc. should be a blessing to the nation but now, thanks to this corrupt and repressive Zanu PF dictatorship, these riches are but a curse!

“It is no wonder many of you end up incarcerated in prison for disgorging nonsense and you then say your human rights have trembled upon,” you say! Chimbwido these Zimbabweans are in prison and many have died terrible deaths under this Mugabe regime because they dared speak the truth!

The real tragedy is Mugabe and Zanu PF would not be tormenting this nation for much longer if Tsvangirai and MDC had implemented the democratic changes they promised in 2008 and were agreed in the GPA.  The reforms were the only guarantee of free and fair elections. Still Mugabe and Zanu PF should not celebrate yet that they will use the dirty money to secure election victory – there is the referendum still to go through. A NO vote will force the implementation of the reforms and thus scupper the dictatorship’s hope of yet another bloody election process!

The battle now is about exposing Tsvangirai and MDC’s lies about the elections being free and fair and how voting NO in the referendum will save life and limb and, more significantly, end the grim choice of a tyrannical regime, dysfunctional coalition or a mediocre government! That is a fight worth fighting and I do not intent to lose!

    The July 2012 Copac draft failed to give the constitutional guarantees for free and fair elections and the right to life itself! Of all the constitutional rights these are the “must have without failure”. The agreed draft will not say much on this since no one has raised this point since.

    The fact that Tsvangirai and his MDC friends have been promising to have the reforms implemented before the elections to safe guard free and fair elections is in itself an acknowledgement of the critical importance of this right in a democracy. Of course they are now lying about getting the reforms implemented now.

    Tsvangirai is making a mountain out of a mole hill of how Copac has fixed the presidential time in office to two-five year terms. This idiot is presenting us with the reality of once again being denied a meaning say in the election of the state president and believes we should find comfort in the knowledge that whoever is imposed on the nation as president will remain in that office for no more than ten years. How stupid is that!

    We are being robbed our right to elect the most powerful office bearer in the land and all we are getting in compensation is the promise the tyrant we did not want to rule will do so for fixed ten more years. This is like a woman in an abusive relationship being told she will have to marry the bastard but be please she can divorce him in ten years!

    All the other things promised in Copac are nothing absolutely nothing compared to the right to free and fair elections and the right to life. Zimbabweans must reject this Copac rubbish and force the implementation of the reforms BEFORE elections are held. The people must not compromise or allow themselves be cheated on these two rights!

  2. This is one of the things that makes one wonder whether some of these NGO are truly independent NGO or are government organised NGO or GONGO. This dysfunctional GNU has wasted five years of the nation’s time and at the end of that period it turns out they failed to implement the democratic reforms everyong agrees are absolutely necessary for free and fair elections and to end political violence. All they did is produce a draft constitution not even worth the paper it is written on.

    And Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition Director McDonald Lewanika said that is “progress”.

    Chairperson of the Women’s Coalition, Virginia Muwanigwa, is “happy”.Chairperson of National Association of Non-governmental Organisations (Nango), Effie Ncube, agreed with Muwanigwa,

    It is any wonder we are in this mess, these clowns are supposed to be fighting the people’s corned and tripping over each other praising the dysfunctional GNU!

    The thing is if the nation had prospered everyone would have been able to earn an honest living without asking the State to help them.

    I am sick to the teeth to hear people like Solomon Madzore glorifying their time in prison as if that is perfectly normal and expected of all Zimbabweans “who are patriotic!” People went through all this before independence to end all this injustice and not to see it repeated again and again and again! Madzore should have serious questioned the inapt way the MDC have handled the gross misuse of power by Zanu PF. Solomon was a wise man but this Madzore idiot is clearly no wiser than the King’s boots!

    The Copac draft will do nothing deliver free and fair elections and all this talk of the draft cutting the presidential powers is nonsense. If the electorate are free to elect a president what good is it to them that the candidate imposed on them will serve two five-year terms.

    It is like a woman with a violent boy friend being told she will no choice but marry the brute and the plus is she can divorce him in ten years! Only idiots like MDC would consider this an “incremental democratic gain!”

    Zanu PF are vultures they have been feeding on helpless victims but, make no mistake about it, they will readly feed on one of their own. The five officials are dead meat!

    The only thing that might save them is if they have, like the late Hebert Ushewokunze once warned his fellow Zanu PF, a dossier in a vault overseas with instruction to be released in the event of their untimely death, disappearance or arrest! Sadly not many of these Zanu PF thugs are as smart as the late Ushe!

  6. The incompetency of Prime Minister Tsvangirai knows no bounds. In 2008 Zimbabwe went through the worst political violence in human history and the GNU was tasked to implement a raft of democratic reforms and write a new constitution to ensure the next elections are free and fair and the orgy of violence of 2008 is never repeated. Not even one of the reforms have seen the light of day after four and half years.

    He is now asking the nation to go into a fresh elections knowing the violence of 2008 will be repeated, it has started already and is getting worse by the day. Once the Copac draft is approved then hell will break lose.

    Tsvangirai could have stopped the culture of violence by having the reforms implemented. He did not get even one implemented.

    He could still save the nation from going through another nightmare of violence by telling the truth that there will be violence. He is lying about getting the reforms implemented BEFORE the elections.

    Not only is Tsvangirai incompetent but a liar too! Tsvangirai will have the blood of all the innocent Zimbabweans who will be murdered by Zanu PF thugs this year on his own his for his dirty part he has played in this debacle!

  7. @Ndreka

    You are right since all the three political parties have endorsed the draft adopting it could well be a mere formality.

    Everyone will tell you they know the elections will be marred by violence because the reforms that were meant to stop the violence have not been implemented. The rational thing to do would be to insist the reform must be implemented before BEFORE the elections. But that is one bridge too far; Zimbabwean are not known for independent rational behavour they follow what the politicians tell them, regardless how stupid they can the instructions to be,like sheep to the slaughter.

    Frankly, if Zimbabweans were capable of rational decision then the nation would not be in this hell-hole!Still only one can do is try to make them see reason!

    I deal with reality and the truth and the reality is Mugabe and his Zanu PF thugs are mercenaries who have stolen the nation’s wealth, denied millions of Zimbabweans their basic and fundamental rights including the right to have a meaningingful say in the governance of this country including the right to life itself. The truth is there are many Zimbabweans who are stupid and sentimental about Mugabe and these thugs and have have allowed themselves to be ruled by their emotions and not by reason and thus allowed these thugs to ride rough shod of the most helpless of our people.

    I have very close relatives who fought in the war of liberation and who have supported Mugabe throughout the years. They have never occupied as high positions in the party as people like John Nkomo, still they have played theior party in this Zanu PF dictatorship. I have told them exactly what I think about what Mugabe and Zanu PF has been doing. I know some of them have read my criticism. Even if Mugabe was my own father or brother it would not change the fact that he is a murderous tyrant. I may deny that, everyone out there may deny it: still that will not male any difference.

  9. @Nhamodzenyika

    Mugabe and Zanu PF have denied the people of Zimbabwe their basic rights including the right to free and fair elections and the right to life itself. Over 30 000 murdered in 33 years of Zanu PF rule! Indeed the money the party is collecting here is to finance its campaign of intimidation, beatings, rape and more murders.
    You are boiling mad at me not because it is not true that Mugabe is a murderous tyrant and Zanu PF is a party of ruthless thugs. You know it is true and, if it was possible for a murderous thug to be ashamed then you are ashamed. Still you are boiling mad at me for saying these things because you want to keep them under wraps.
    Frankly I do not give a damn about you and your totally misplaced sense of loyalty. What I care about is that this madness of corruption and brutal repression that has left millions of Zimbabweans destitute and without hope should end. And the nation’s looted wealth is given back to the people and those responsible for the heinous crimes of the last three decades are punished!
    You have loot to hold on to and blood of many innocent victims on your hands and clearly you and many others do not like to hear what I am saying one bit. Well tough s***t!
    Mugabe and Zanu PF’s rule of terror is drawing to an end and justice will rule the land! Regime change is upon us and Mugabe and Zanu PF’s dictates count for nothing then.
