  • Is there no end to Zimbabwe’s decline? - Business News | IOL Business

    Zimbabwe’s decision to scrap the local currency in 2009 helped end hyperinflation as it cut off the government’s ability to print money to pay debts. With Zimbabwe adopting the US dollar and currencies such as the South African rand as legal tender, authorities have no ability to boost money supply in the economy. “The macro-economy is under enormous pressure,” Joseph Rohm, a fund manager who helps oversee about $1.3 billion in African investments in countries other than South Africa for Investec Asset Management, said by phone from Cape Town on August 31.

  • Promiscuity is murdering us

    Why does South Africa have the largest HIV-positive population in the world? DA leader Helen Zille asked these questions in her statement on Sunday, "Tackling the new Aids denialism", - and she was also kind enough to give us the answer to bringing our HIV-infection rate under control. Zille said the reason we top the list of countries with the largest number of people living with HIV is because we are unfaithful. Quoting Dr Helen Epstein's book, The Invisible Cure on the HIV Pandemic in South Africa, Zille said the only countries in Africa that have turned the Aids pandemic around are those that have focussed on partner reduction.

    Reuters Manchester United insist it is not necessary for Louis van Gaal to make a trip to Madrid to repair his relationship with David De Gea. Manchester United insist it is not necessary for manager Louis van Gaal to make a trip to Madrid to repair his relationship with David De Gea, after the collapse of the goalkeeper's proposed transfer shattered the 24-year-old's hopes of a move back to his home city. As Ander Herrera insisted his compatriot was too good a professional not to reintegrate rapidly at Old Trafford, sources at the top of United rejected the suggestion that a trip was required similar to the one Sir Alex Ferguson made to Lisbon in 2008 when he persuaded Cristiano Ronaldo to delay a move to Real Madrid for one more year.

  • Worst fears confirmed as famed Palmyra temple flattened

    The destruction of the Temple of Bel sparked outrage and international headlines, precisely the reaction the jihadist group may have been seeking, experts said. Dozens of relics remain at risk in the ruins of Palmyra, which IS jihadists seized from regime forces in May as they pursued their campaign for territory in Syria and Iraq. The extremist group's harsh philosophy condemns pre-Islamic religious sites and considers statues and grave markers to be idolatrous, but it has also been accused of destroying heritage to loot items for the black market and to gain publicity. Satellite images taken before and after an explosion at Palmyra on Sunday "confirm the destruction of the main Temple of Bel as well as a row of columns in its immediate vicinity," UN training and research agency UNITAR said late Monday.

  • Judges pepper Vodacom counsel on SMS idea

    JUDGES of the Constitutional Court quizzed Vodacom on Tuesday on whether it was just that the company had reaped billions from its former employee’s idea without rewarding him for it. The court is the last stop for Nkosana Makate, who has fought a seven-year battle to get compensated for his "Please Call Me" idea, which allows cellphone users to send free call-back text messages, and which continues to be a money-spinner for network service providers. Last year, Mr Makate lost out in the High Court in Johannesburg, which found that while he had entered into a contract with former Vodacom director and product development head Phillip Geissler over the idea, the company could only be liable if it had authorised Mr Geissler to contract on its behalf. In July last year, Judge Phillip Coppin said Mr Makate had not made a sufficient case of "ostensible authority" — he had not shown that Vodacom had acted in such a way that he was entitled to rely on the agreement with Mr Geissler.

    Bloomberg VISION: By throwing out free trade and embracing protectionism during the 1960s, South Korea managed to do in 50 years what it took Britain 150 years to do. In the 1960s, Korea was an undeveloped nation whose major exports were human hair (for wigs) and fish, and its average annual income was around $400 per working family. South Korea did all this in a single generation by closing its economy and promoting its export industries.

As a Zimbabwean handyman living in South Africa, I do not need a university degree to know that Zimbabwe continues to descend perilously quickly. Once the breadbasket of the continent, former African war hero Robert Mugabe and his cronies have pillaged the country over the last two decades, leaving a country in economic and political disarray in their wake. While this state-manufactured dysfunction persists, one of the most bewildering stories in Africa in the last fifteen years has become the perceived silence of Zimbabweans.
