  • Zimbabwe: Mugabe Exposed

    PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe could have played both puppet and puppeteer, in the Zanu PF debacle that resulted in the removal of then Vice-President Joice Mujuru while the same exposed his wife First Lady Grace as empty, a think tank has said. In a comprehensive paper released last week that looks at the events prior to and after the 2014 Zanu PF fall-out and the ruling party's emotive succession conundrum, the Research and Advocacy Unit (RAU) says Mugabe's "opaque and secretive style of governance" made it very difficult to determine whether he was playing his cards close to his chest, or in fact, not playing any cards at all. "Mugabe is singularly coy in accepting responsibility for decisions generally. "Most usually, when referring to his determinations, particularly if they are sensitive, Mugabe opts for the first person plural, rather than singular, even where the decision is clearly his and his alone.

    The 39-year-old Los Angeles woman was found dead in a room at a luxury Cape Town hotel on Wednesday with faeces on her head and a curling iron next to her body. Diego Dougherty Novella, a 41-year-old Guatemalan arrested in connection with the murder and being held at Pollsmoor prison, appeared in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court on Friday. Police sources close to the investigation said they were trying to establish the true identity of the man known as Novella because the passport found on the murder scene - a room at the exclusive Camps Bay Retreat boutique hotel - does not contain a South African port-of-entry stamp. In several overseas publications, Novella, who has links to Mexico and Italy, is also referred to as Diego Guarte, who is barred from entering the US for reasons that are still unclear.
