Zimbabwe has seen a new government work ethic since 2017. Most visible is the fight against public sector corruption. Public sector corruption had reached endemic proportions and with impunity. Zimbabwe had not known the arrest of any sitting government minister until Priscah Mupfumira. Allegations of top government office corruption had been spoken of in hushed voices, in fact it was taboo to speak ill of a corrupt government official without the risk of arrest or some unwanted action against such a speaker.

It is just one and a half years since Nelson Chamisa seized control of the MDC following his predecessor, the late Morgan Tsvangirai’s death on 14 February 2018. The guy is already showing signs of fatigue and frustration which is an indication of his lack of the necessary political mettle and grit to run an opposition party in a vibrant democracy such as Zimbabwe’s. He seems not to possess the necessary patience and stoicism to last the distance.

The country is set to benefit close to US$174 Million in support from United Nations (UN) humanitarian partners owing to the impartial work by the outgoing UN Resident Coordinator to Zimbabwe, Bishow Parajuli.

Once upon a time, Felix Nhlanhlayemangwe Ndiweni controversially assumed the Ndiweni Chieftainship on 22 August 2014 following the death of his father, Chief Khayisa Ndiweni who had held the post for over five decades. His ascension to the throne was without controversy as his brother, Joram, filed a High Court application challenging his nomination for the Chieftainship on the grounds that Nguni customs, practices and norms recognise the eldest son as the heir to the throne. With the support of his mother, Agnes, and, as it is coming out now, G40 elements in ZANU PF then occupying influential positions in Government, Felix eventually triumphed over his brother. The new Chief spent over 28 years staying in the UK.

Cultural tourism in Zimbabwe has become one of the major forms of income generators boosting the economy. This is because of the history it gives about lifestyles and the way people lived in the past. Cultural tourism needs to be taken seriously although it is one side of tourism that some Zimbabweans tend to ignore.

…as it adds its growing voice against illegal sanctions on Zimbabwe.

Upon his ascendancy to the Presidency of Zimbabwe, President Emmerson Mnangagwa quickly made known his ambition to project a different path to the one set by his predecessor, Robert Mugabe.

The much-hyped MDC’s 16 August 2019 demonstration in Harare fell flat on its face despite the spirited attempts by some of its impressionable and excitable youths to defy the prohibition order issued on the eve of the ill-fated event by the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP). The event turned out to be largely much ado about nothing but not without some insights on the MDC leader, Nelson Chamisa, his executive and the party in general.
