Quote of the week

The judgments are replete with the findings of dishonesty and mala fides against Major General Ntlemeza. These were judicial pronouncements. They therefore constitute direct evidence that Major General Ntlemeza lacks the requisite honesty, integrity and conscientiousness to occupy the position of any public office, not to mention an office as more important as that of the National Head of the DPCI, where independence, honesty and integrity are paramount to qualities. Currently no appeal lies against the findings of dishonesty and impropriety made by the Court in the judgments. Accordingly, such serious findings of fact in relation to Major General Ntlemeza, which go directly to Major General Ntlemeza’s trustworthiness, his honesty and integrity, are definitive. Until such findings are appealed against successfully they shall remain as a lapidary against Lieutenant General Ntlemeza.

Zimabwe: where even the SABC is “subversive”

More proof that anything remotely resembling a free and fair election in Zimbabwe is not possible. From the This is Zimbabwe website:

The Zimbabwean government has announced the beginning of yet another operation designed to oppress the people of Zimbabwe.

Under Operation Dzikisai Madhishi (Operation pull down your satellite dish) the regime is forcing Zimbabweans to pull down their home satellite dishes through which the majority of Zimbabweans have been able to access eTV, SABC, Botswana Television as well some DSTV channels. The coverage of the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) is generally poor outside of the main urban areas. The overwhelming propaganda content of this state channel has seen the proliferation of private satellite dishes in recent years.

This operation is a concerted effort by the regime to close all spaces through which information can be disseminated, with the objective of stealing the election.

Zimbabwe has descended into unparalleled levels of media censorship. The regime is determined to cut off Zimbabweans from the rest of the world by ensuring that they are unable to receive news from outside Zimbabwe about what is happening in their own country.
