  • Zimbabwe: Donors Push for Tsvangirai, Mujuru Coalition

    OPPOSITION MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai is reportedly grappling with a quandary after donors made clear he either joins up with former vice president Joice Mujuru or risk losing financial support. Western donors are reportedly frustrated with Tsvangirai's remarkable success in failing to dislodge President Robert Mugabe, now 91 years old, since the formation of the MDC in 1999. The former prime minister had already been hit with financial sanctions by traditional donors after he came a cropper again in the 2013 vote. Following the MDC-T's shellacking by Zanu PF in those elections which the opposition leader insists were rigged by Mugabe and his party, donors reportedly turned to the Tendai Biti-led MDC Renewal initiative.

  • South Africa: Bitter Boy Who Shames His Father and His People

    President Zuma's son Edward is xenophobic and racist. Like the disgarceful Zulu King Zwelithini he supports, whose reckless utterances sparked the attacks on foreginers, Edward continues Cecil Rhodes' odious legacy of dividing Africans. It is quite overwhelming to see the grown son of the most powerful man in South Africa act like a child that grew up in a home without discipline or education. Today, we can say that Edward Zuma is xenophobic, even though he himself was born in Swaziland.

  • Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter in demand

    Uncertainty remains as to whether Stuart Baxter will still be at Kaizer Chiefs next season. Baxter has won two league titles in three seasons since joining Amakhosi, as well as the 2014 Nedbank Cup and the 2014 MTN8. The South African Football Association are said to be interested in Baxter for the role of technical director, while Moroccan giants Raja Casablanca, who knocked Chiefs out of this year’s Caf Champions League, are also reported to have enquired about his services. It is now obvious that Josta Dladla and Siyabonga Nkosi will not be part of the team next season.
