January 22, 2019 Zimbabwe: Repression & Dreams Deferred, Again
"Robert Mugabe was really bad because he didn’t listen to anyone unless
under personal duress, and because of that terrible trait in him, it led
to his spectacular and embarrassing undoing with the culmination of a
military coup that was supported by the citizens and the rest of the
world sealing his ungraceful demise. Everybody was just tired of the old
man, and regardless of the unorthodox means used to remove him, it was a
popular and celebrated end of a disastrous rule. His inconvenient and
unintended successor and apprentice, Emmerson Mnangagwa, has only been in
power for fourteen months, but he has perfected his former boss’s art of
not listening and being oblivious to what the rest of the world thinks of
his rule, good or bad." - Hopewell Chin´ono
March 26, 2018 Zimbabwe: Women Continue Protest at Hwange Coal
At a meeting on February 11, two weeks into a protest by hundreds of women in the
mining community outside the company's offices, still continuing in late March, the
Hwange Colliery Company Ltd. (HCCL) admitted that the company owed its workers a
total of $70 million. HCCL management said they did not have the money to pay,
although many workers had not been paid full wages for almost five years.
November 27, 2017 Zimbabwe: After Mugabe, Looking Forward
"While Zimbabweans understandably embraced military intervention because it led to
the ouster of Mugabe and prevented his wife Grace from succeeding him, they must also
embrace the fact that it comes with further, less palatable consequences. The episode
demonstrated once again that the military is a critical arm of the state which has
become the kingmaker in Zimbabwean politics." - Alex T. Magaisa
