Zanu PF violence

police brutalityWe have published the ZiDERA 2018 Act in full to demonstrate the well thought out reforms that are desperately needed in Zimbabwe to allow for the democratisation of the Nation. This is to allow urgently needed fiscal support to be injected. These reforms are entirely resonable and justified. Only the corrupt within the military regime would object. 

"If one really wishes to know how justice is administered in a country, one does not question the policemen, the lawyers, the judges, or the protected members of the middle class. One goes to the unprotected - those, precisely, who need the law's protection most! - and listens to their testimony." ~

It wouild appear that not many are asking the general population what they think, instead the intimidation, oppression continue. As evidenced on August 1st 2018 and the days following; January 2019 and the treatment of Protesters on 16th August 2019 - the military Zanu PF have "resorted to type" and have killed, maimed, raped and tortured any form of opposition - or in fact just anybody, so as to intimidate and suppress all forms of opposition. 

The abduction and torture of the leader of the Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association (ZHDA), Dr. Peter Magombeyi is just another in a long line of strategems by the regime to intimidate the population or any critic, however insignificant.

“E.O. 13288 imposed sanctions against specifically identified individuals and entities in Zimbabwe, as a result of the actions and policies of certain members of the Government of Zimbabwe and other persons undermining democratic institutions or processes in Zimbabwe. Following E.O. 13288, in response to the continued undermining of democratic institutions, the President issued two subsequent Executive orders that expanded the list of sanctions targets to include immediate family members of any person whose property and interests in property are blocked as well as those persons providing assistance to any such individual.”

Acting High Commissioner SA High CommissionU.K. HUMAN RIGHTS PROTESTERS CAUSE THE CLOSURE OF SOUTH AFRICA HIGH COMMISSION IN PLANNED ANTI XENOPHOBIA PEACEFUL PROTEST.

As Africans in the U.K. on the 11th September 2019, (11/09/19) we united to protest at SOUTH AFRICA HOUSE against the Xenophobic attacks on black migrants by indigenous South Africans carried out mostly in the capital city Johannesburg and the port city of Durban.

In the past weeks, we have seen yet again, Xenophobic atrocities happening in SOUTH AFRICA against fellow black Africans. Zimbabweans, Nigerians, Ghanaian's and so many other Africans have been affected. One of the videos shows a man being burned alive, in another video a man is apparently beaten to death, he is effectively being summarily tortured by mob rule.

SA DemoXenophobia [or more accurately AFRO-PHOBIA ] is an ugly facet on South African streets right now. Cyril Ramaphosa has done little to suppress the ghastly consequence of his "xenophobic-ticket" as he campaigned for President. Now the price of that travesty is being seen globally - but still the "luke-warm" condemnation is just not enough.
 
It is ironic that the World Economic Forum (WEF) on Africa, with the meeting being held in Cape Town, South Africa. How have other African leaders re-acted to the carnage? Well that remains to be seen - but there needs to be a public statement to be released by these "leaders", otherwise we may just as well ignore their meeting as a "talk Shop!
