ROHR ZIMBABWE IN SOLIDARITY WITH VENDORS 28th June, 2015 By Panyika Anselm Karimanzira Restoration of Human Rights (ROHR) Zimbabwe activists in Zimbabwe stood in solidarity with vendors in the month of June 2015 following an ultimatum issued by the Minister of Local Government, Public Works and National Housing, Dr Ignatius Chombo for the vendors to vacate their sites in cities and towns in Zimbabwe within seven days or face the wrath of the Zimbabwe National Army. Dr Ignatius Chombo’s argument is that vendors must not operate from undesignated sites but, curiously, the government, through local authorities has not provided sufficient […]

STATEMENT BY RESTORATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS (ROHR) ZIMBABWE ON THE ABDUCTION OF POLITICAL AND HUMAN RIGHTS ACTIVIST ITAI DZAMARA 12th March, 2015 ROHR Zimbabwe has noted with grave concern the abduction of Political and Human Rights activist and leader of Occupy Africa Unity Square movement, Itai Dzamara purportedly by“unknown” people on Monday 9th March, 2015. We cannot help but notice that this has all the hallmarks of the state agents and is reminiscent of numerous such abductions in the past, notably that of Jestina Mukoko on 3rd December, 2008 and Paul Chizuze on 8th February in 2012. The former went […]

OF ILLEGALLY ALLOCATED STANDS and DEMOLITIONS of-illegally-allocated-stands-and-demolitions B.y Patrick Gore          13th November, 2013 Polarisis of Analysis. (A phrase from Mwalimu Ray Haggins) …When a person fails/refuses to properly analyze the information availed to them. This is normally caused by an imbedded belief and/or desire. It is quite clear to me that the desire to own wealth causes a Polarisis of Analysis in a large section of our Zimbabwean population. Educated people have been known to “plant” large amounts of cash in the ground with the “belief” that it would grow. Thousands gather at religious meetings and give large tithes with […]

ANOTHER FIVE YEARS IN THE GRIPS OF A DICTATOR

ANOTHER FIVE YEARS IN THE GRIPS OF A DICTATOR By Mavu Chinyani            17th September, 2013 Ever since the 2013 Zimbabwean elections results were announced, I for one feel like I am in a nightmare from which I shall wake up to the relief of finding that I was only dreaming. That Robert Mugabe, cruel and unpopular as he is, won the elections is beyond comprehension. It couldn’t be, indeed the whole thing was “cooked up” and yet despite all the signs and evidence of the blatant rigging, we are going to be stuck with him for yet another 5 years. […]

WITHERTO ZIMBABWE AFTER ELECTIONS 2013

WITHERTO ZIMBABWE AFTER ELECTIONS 2013 Personal opinion:   by By Patience Kasi 16th August, 2013 So, the elections have come and gone. The feeling I get is …, your guess is right, “stunned, beyond belief!!” I, like the majority of Zimbabweans, was actually hoping for change this time around but it did not happen. If the results of the 2013 elections are anything to go by, then we are in for the ”long haul”. What do you do when your vote is not made to count for who you voted for? What do you do when election results are manufactured […]
