Based on the facts of this case, and keeping in mind the experiences of countries like Cuba, Chile, Venezuela, Iran or Kwame Nkrumah's Ghana among many others, there is more than enough to suggest that the activities of the British and American governments in Zimbabwe today have become too daring, too entrenched and too dangerous to be left alone.

   over Zimbabwe's strategic mineral wealth
July 30, 2008
Robert Mugabe, the President of Zimbabwe, presides over one of the world's richest minerals treasures, the Great Dyke region, which cuts a geological swath across the entire land from northeast to southwest. The real background to the pious concerns of the Bush Administration for human rights in Zimbabwe in the past several years is not Mugabe's possible election fraud or his expropriation of white settler farms. It is the fact that Mr. Mugabe has been quietly doing business, a lot of it, with the one country which has virtually unlimited need of strategic raw materials Zimbabwe can provide–China. Mugabe's Zimbabwe is, along with Sudan, on the central stage of the new war over control of strategic minerals of Africa between Washington and Beijing, with Moscow playing a supporting role in the drama. The stakes are huge.
» Sanctions hurting ordinary folk – Gono July 30, 2008

» Zimbabwe crisis puts Zuma above Odinga July 27, 2008
The West, especially the British, had been trying to push Zuma to swallow their bait by publicly criticising Robert Mugabe thus driving a dangerous wedge between him and President Thabo Mbeki who has been pursuing quiet but fruitful diplomacy to defuse the problems in Zimbabwe. Thankfully, Zuma had the courage to reiterate what leaders of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) have repeatedly made clear on many occasions. They have said the West exaggerates the crisis in Zimbabwe, that we have had problems on the continent but the West does not raise the alarm as it has done regarding Zimbabwe; we had millions dying in Angola, Congo, Rwanda, Burundi and northern Uganda, but the West kept silent.

2008 Elections Aftermath News

News 2001-2006

Pan-African, independent and civil society labels are now being applied to hawkish, imperialistic and anti-Black African groups that are funded by the US and European powers in collaboration with White settlers in Zimbabwe for the purpose of demonizing President Robert Mugabe and coercing regime change in Zimbabwe. The fact that there are Black Africans in these groups does not make them any less anti-Black African or free from European manipulations.
— Ayinde
Pan-Africanists logic and conviction deduces that because imperialism is an enemy of Africa and we are Africans then the enemies of Africa and/or Zimbabwe are our enemies. Right now imperialism's most pronounced and pointed attack on Africa is in Zimbabwe. When imperialism attacks Zimbabwe it is attacking us. This is our logic.

— Netfa Freeman
Clearly, Mugabe's capital crime was to displace White privilege in Zimbabwe and personally stand up to the White establishment in London and Washington.

— Timothy Kalyegira


Interview: Zimbabwe Ambassador

Should an election be carried out when a country is under sanctions and it has been made clear to the electorate that the sanctions will be lifted only if the opposition party is elected?

Should a political party which is the creation of, and is funded by, hostile foreign forces, and whose program is to unlatch the door from within to provide free entry to foreign powers to establish a neo-colonial rule, be allowed to freely operate?

Should the leaders of an opposition movement that takes money from hostile foreign powers and who have made plain their intention to unseat the government by any means available, be charged with treason?

These are the questions that now face (have long faced) the embattled government of Zimbabwe, and which it has answered in its own way, and which other governments, at other times, have answered in theirs.

The Zimbabwe Question and the Two Lefts by Sam Moyo and Paris Yeros

Mr Mbeki said those who fought for a democratic Zimbabwe "with thousands paying the supreme price during the struggle, and forgave their oppressors and torturers in a spirit of national reconciliation, have been turned into repugnant enemies of democracy".

In a direct reference to Britain, he said: "Those who, in the interest of their [white] 'kith and kin', did what they could to deny the people of Zimbabwe their liberty, for as long as they could, have become the eminent defenders of the democratic rights of the people of Zimbabwe."



Flashback: Don't blame Mugabe for everything by Thabo Mbeki, May 29, 2003


Martin Luther King noted in 1967 that the Vietnamese people 'must see Americans as strange liberators'. In this brilliant and deeply-researched book, investigative journalist Gregory Elich shows how the US state has not changed its spots. He proves this by analysing its actions against Iraq, North Korea, Yugoslavia and Zimbabwe. Scroll down this amazon.com page for reviews.

Llumina Press Reviews


Contrary to what is implied, many Africans (people of African descent) interpret Zimbabwean developments, not necessarily through romanticism, but with a valid rejection of imperialism's 'mania for regime change'. Too often has the public seen leaders and countries demonized simply as a prelude for this policy.



Land Grab & Robert Mugabe

Before the Mugabe Government started uprooting the white farmers in 2000, this Government kept inflation at 5 percent, 8 percent (or 11 percent in difficult years.) How, then, does a country with all the same factors and leaders from 1980 to 2000 suddenly (because the white commercial farmers have been uprooted) see inflation soar to world record levels in a space of just six years starting in 2000? And how is it that a stable Zimbabwe has an inflation rate 1 500 times higher than Somalia, a country without a govt since 1991?
