Dr. Mwanawasa urges US investors to take advantage of looming power deficit in Zambia


Go to fullsize imageAn electricity generation deficit is expected to hit Zambia next year due to the rising demand for energy in the country and the entire South and Eastern African regions as a result of increasing economic acitivity.

President Mwanawasa, who said this today when he addressed members of the Community Development Roundtable Chamber here, said business houses in the USA could exploit this opportunity by heavily investing in Zambia’s energy sector.

Dr. Mwanawasa said government had already started seeking alternative sources of energy while it expands the capacity of existing hydro electric power station.

The President told the businessmen during a working breakfast at Rainier club, which
was hosted in his honour by the Initiative for Global Development, IGD, that Zambia
had put in place prudent macroeconomic management measures that have so far
translated into an increase in the economic growth rate.

He said deliberate steps were also being taken to dismantle unnecessary red tape
against business development by way of reducing to one day the company registration

Dr. Mwanawasa told the meeting, also attended by Bill Gates Senior who is the father
to Mr. Bill Gates, the owner of the Giant Microsoft company, that the reform process
to ease the burden of doing business in the country is highly ambitious and will
continue to occupy the Zambian leadership agenda for sometime to come.

The President assured the business community that his government will continue to
provide a stable political and legal environment conducive for business in the

The President was also quick to mention that some of the improvements are processes
that will take time to be fully implement because they require enough time.

“That not withstanding, my government will be steadfgast in implementing all the
reform measured because I believe they are critical for our future success”, Dr.
Mwanawasa said.

The President, however, said he has in the past been disappointed that the response
from the business community in the USA has not been good despite giving them all the
attractive investment conditions.

Dr. Mwanawasa expressed hope that, this time around, there would be a good number of
business delegations visiting the country to set up businesses or even to make
serious  enquiries about establising business enterprises in the country.

“I therefore look forward to investments from American businessmen and women to take
advantage of the excellent business climte that we have establishd”, the President

Dr. Mwanawasa said he was fully aware of the fact that countries like Zambia need
the participation of private enterprises to fight and defeat poverty and as such he
admired the objectives of organisations like the IGD, who have taken it upon
themselves to help wipe out poverty in developing countries.

In the area of agriculture, the President said the abundant arable land was
complimented with climate and plenty of water resources that create a huge
irrigation potential.

Earlier, Commerce, Trade and Industry Minister, Felix Mutati assured the businessmen
and women that when they set up businesses in Zambia, they will be assured of freely
remitting their profits and dividends.

He stressed that Zambia needs serious partners, who will help translate the prudent
investment policy into reality by way of increasing job opportunities for the local

And Acting Director General of the Zambia Development Agency, ZDA, Glyne Michelo
said Zambia has stable microeconomic and political environment, coupled with abudant
natural resources for investment.

Mr. Michelo, who ran through the advantages of investing in Zambia which he said had
easy ccess to markets both within Africa and in Europe, said the government has put
in place deliberate policy incentives for investors.

The President was accompanied at the meeting by First Lady Maureen, Commerce
Minister Mr. Mutati, Health minister Brian Chituwo and Education Minister Geofrey


    Mr president much as you are fighting tooth and nail to revive the economy I personally feel you are suffering an eceononical dependance syndrome that will make our country not come out from it doldrums. Why do have to show you disperation where ever you go? A couple of days ago you pointed out that china is the only source of hope we have and this time you are desparately looking to the U.S. Would you tell the nation what you think about local investment? When are you going to start empowering the Local investors. Be mindful that a vibrant economy is one which is run by its locals. Its sad that you have given priority to foreign investors at the expense of the Locals. No wonder even after ten years of masive privatisation the people of Zambia have seen little or no change interms of economical benefit. My strong message to you sir is that this inferiority complex you have should come to an end otherwise you are turning back the clock to pre colonial era.

  2. It’s illogical for ZESCO to continue exporting power to ZESA of Zim-zim and ESCOM of SA inexpensively while Zedians pay exorbitant monthly bills, of which given a chance to import power from Zim-zim, 55.71% would be saved by any household in Zed. On the other hand, it’s imperceptive to import power from Dr Congo (le Marine) expensively and export it to neighbours cheaply. Plz abena Mutati do something you’re one of the few chaps in MMD with fine brains who can implement tangible policies in that ministry unlike chi Mpombo your predecessor who was just yawning out dust after a java of “sinjonjo” and grovelling in dust to welcome Dr Chuchu and majoring in say “Indee Bwana, Sata nalamusolva manjemanje ba Dr”.

    What has happen to that man in Kasama with his small scale HEP? Why do we always ask the west to come and mess up with our own resources? We have educated chaps abanua ink in electrical engineering that can assist MY country to pull in thru this syndrome of begging the west. Ala ico atupila Bush for he knows for sure that Dr Chuchu can’t do minus the west. Why can’t we start using Uranium in southern province for nuclear energy production like Japan, Norway, Iran, SA and other developed nations are doing? Furthermore, we can use wind to generate electricity since much of the land is unoccupied for wind turbines installation te?

  3. #3 continues ….

    Make our local engineers go in the field and work unlike the way it is. Civil, electrical, mechanical and genetic engineers are all found in offices drinking tea, chatting, and leaving jackets on chairs like Mr Khupe. “Nako ifitile” time has come to remove these chaps in offices and show them where they belong. (Jesus wept)

  4. I dont even know where to start but i will try.First things first, There is nothing wrong with DFI(direct foreign Investment). What is wrong with this whole issue is that he tied DFI to energy which means ZESCO in Z. Zambia has the natural resources and ZESCO has the money to invest to even double the capacity. So what is the problem??? Ba Jose… The nature of electricity is that you have to use it as soon as its generated. If there is no demand for power in Z at the time its generated you have to sale it or to ZIM or you loose it. So ZESCO(ZAM),ZESCO(ZIM) ,ESKOM dont have a choice but to sale whenever they produce more than we can consume locally. If you visit the archive you realise that we have all raised the question of locals paying more than the export tariff. The simple explanation is that ZESCO has no choice. either they sale at a discount or just loose the whole deal. Even ESKOM when they export to Zambia its at a much cheaper rate than they charge in SA….ctd

  5. All along GRZ has been quite on liberalising the energy industry. Kafue gorge generates electricity and ZESCO distributes to consumers. In some parts ZESCO generates power too. ZESCO owns the power lines, and power generating facilities. The first step before even invite foreign investors is to break up Zesco into separate independent campanies. A power generating entity,power distribution entities and local loop enties(companies that should own the poles,wires,transformers etc) When you have a tierd energy sector then you can have even local businesses getting involved either at power generating level or distribution level or local loop level. Right now if you want to get into energy, you have to build your own dam, erect the poles parallel to ZESCO poles…. see we are not ready at GRZ level for DFI in the energy sector.

  6. #6 “ZESCO has the money to invest to double the capacity”

    The truth of the quoted statement needs to be examined carefully, is it not true that ZESCO account books are in the negative? Going by the fact that they want to do new projects with the help of sino-hydro, zesco has money but not enough for big investment.

  7. Ba Jose #3, Robert in kasama with the HEP you are talking about is a broke man, you have to buy him a few mosi’s if you meet him at kasama lodge….if only someone can invest in his scheme. Chinese might be interested!

  8. All he does is go around selling Zambia when this the job of our diplomats who are not funded adequately for marketing programs! In South Africa and London the diplomat’s job is that of ferrying senior GRZ and MMD officials from the airport – sick or not!

  9. #1 I’m with you on the points you have outlined. The best investors any nation can have are local investors and this is the area were our gov’t should focus on. FDI can be good if we have good policies in place to ensure that we get the right taxes from companies setting up in Zambia. However, the current policy of giving too much away were we are hardly getting anything from the so called investments like in mining is just bad. If the gov’t was getting decent royalties from the mines, Ba levy wouldn’t even by going around the world begging for investment, instead investment would be coming on its own.



  11. President Robert Mugabe has vowed that Zimbabwe shall never retreat in resisting the British and the Americans.

    And President Mugabe said US President George Bush acts as though he were God.

    Meanwhile, President Mugabe warned that profiteering businesses risked being taken over by the state if they did not adhere to stipulated pricing levels.

    Addressing scores of war veterans and ZANU-PF supporters at Harare International Airport upon arrival from the 62nd Session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, President Mugabe said the British and the Americans were still interested in ruling Zimbabwe.

    “Tony Blair, Bush and now Gordon Brown (British Prime Minister), you are just foreigners who live in far-off lands. Leave us alone. We are not your relatives. What are you looking for? What are your interests here?” President Mugabe asked.

    “You came and siphoned our wealth for years and years. You still want to rule us, we are not crippled. Zimbabwe is ours, we won’t retreat. Zimbabwe shall never be a colony again.”

    President Mugabe also took time to brief the gathering about his trip to New York and said US President George Bush acts as though he were God.


  12. “Well well well”.
    The president has come up with a very perfect initiative.Foreign investment and actually pleading for them to come and invest.
    Lets not just forget that the owner of the family knows and feels it coz”Home is home” so all we might do is dependent upon making home a better place.i don’t know what your perception this word is gonna bring into your mind.Furthermore,i beg your forgiveness for refering to the chinese in the way they control their country’s economy.
    China has all sorts of investors but never puts or sidelines its locals.Locals carry major positions that helps the country monitor all deals and transactions.Mention any Big companies you know around the globe,atleast their major stations are in China,all have the same experiences.There is a way in which the investments rules are made which protects locals from being abused and the country at large.Can Zambia make it or are we gonna cause wall in that many a country would wanna rule us?

  13. Come on;
    I might be speaking rubbish today but just analyze this and follow it up in all the global papers if you do like reading like myself.
    OOOOPs dear friends,we better choose,do we need China or the U.S or both?
    Look at this;
    Where ever the U.S is failing China will shine,where ever China shines,the U.S will show its capability.
    “Oh my BIG mouth”.Bob Marley,ackim Simukonda and the like had it on CD,not just entertainment.Zambians are peace loving by nature so we need to select .
    Lets handle initial issues at hand especially to let Zambians love and understand China and let Chinese respect and love Zambians as well as the two government to put on paper clear bilateral understands which obligates even a villager toenjoy and appreciate the existence of all kinda foreigners in our country.
    ANSWER?Peace,unity,love ,fair trade and understanding.
    Not pea nuts and insults in your own country.The chinese themselves have zero tolerance for that.Hence WE HAVE A STRONG CHINA.BEAUTIFUL

  14. Pundit #16
    That is what is required of an African Leader. Not those who tremble when they meet terrorists / imperialists (Bush and company).

  15. It is amazing why LPM was addressing the community development roundtable and thinking he was luring serious investors. I mean he was addressing pipo like Bill Gates Snr, for what? Bill Gates jnr is the one LPM should have been meeting.

  16. EU cautions Zambian govt…it’ll be a scandal to get into debt

    EU head of delegation Derek Fee (c) addressing trainee journalists at Post Newspapers head office on Monday – Picture by Collins Phiri

    IT will be a scandal for Zambia to get itself back into debt, European Union (EU) head of delegation in Zambia Dr Derek Fee has charged.

    And Dr Fee said the EU was helping to stop brain drain among health personnel from Zambia and other African countries by putting money in the health sector to retain professionals.

    Addressing 24 trainee journalists undergoing a three-month-orientation training programme at Post Newspapers head office in Lusaka on Monday, Dr Fee said African countries were ‘mortgaging’ themselves by getting loans from China.

    “One of the most worrying things is the level of Chinese loans to countries in Africa. You have at the moment a loan from the Chinese in Angola of US $ 9 billion. For this loan the Angolans have mortgaged their oil industry for 150 years,” Dr Fee observed.

    “The Chinese are about to give a loan to Congo (Democratic Republic of Congo) of US$5 billion. These are loans, and not grants.”

    He said Zambia had benefited from the debt write-offs and it would be a scandal for the country to start contracting loans again.

  17. We talk about FDI being selling Zed to china or EU, but wait who are the locals supposed to be investing in Zed, we, the Zeds living in the diaspora.People in zed are so drained, so maybe we should start talking projects of investments on this forum.LPM is right to beg for FDI, Zed needs to create jobs and infrastructure, and GRZ cannot do that but create policy and climate.Can we see committment to zed, for the people with money, lets look to zed.Lets stop filling our yards with 2nd hand cars.

  18. FDIs for whose interest? Gluco my brother good observation. I was shocked not to read anything about Mugabe at UN. The media has even made an excuse by saying the Bush adress was aimed at Burma not Iran, Cuba, Zimbabwe, Sudan. I tell you now what one German Professor said when asked about Búsh speech. Bush is now passed history. The world should move forward. From all the speeches I listened I was impressed by Germany Channellor who seeks union and cooperation. The Malayasian Prime minister who regarded the world as a global village. The Iran President was far much better than Bush. Just have to be careful with who we let to come in Zambia and invest. This is what killed DR Congo once the cake becomes small or the race of who must be powerful.

  19. #6 Socrates
    Ba Socrates where did you get that data on Zed importing power from SA? ZESCO has never imported power from ESKOM and we only import power from Le Marine of Dr Congo as a supplement in mining industry on the copperbelt. SA export power to Lesotho on batter system exchange for water. Imwe ba Socrate, in 1955 -1959 the valley Tongas were displaced from their ancestral land to barren land of Lisutu and Gwembe owing to Kariba Dam construction and were promised electricity and water. Sadly they are still waiting for someone to fulfill that promise up to now. Honestly imwe ba Socrates how would you export power to a village like Chitungwiza while leaving the pipo who scarified a lot with nothing? Even the Chipepo Boarding School that was built in 1964 for the displaced pipo is still using diesel generator and operates less than 4hrs per day. All we need now is to electrify Zedian villages and towns rather than exporting it cheaply to Zim-zim.

  20. #24 Ba Joze you are right my brother was at Chipepo and nothing has changed. Sad!!! very soon when we dont have anything we will start selling our babies.

  21. Ba Jose….I thought you live in Zambia? What where the News headlines 2 months ago regarding power outages in Zambia. Let me remind you. Read this article from LT archives posted in July Title: ZESCO rations power to keep the mines going
    “Obsolete equipment and a lack of new investment in power generation since Zambia’s independence from Britain in 1964 are among the factors hampering Zesco’s efforts to meet its full power capacity of 1,670 mw, according to officials.
    It has been meeting the shortfall by importing power from the neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo as well as South Africa, but the DRC has stopped its exports to Zambia after vandals destroyed transmission lines”.There is many more articles on ZESCO/ESKOM. Just a month ago ESKOM threatened to stop exporting power due to increased local demand. I will not go into how Tongas where displaced by Kariba dam simply because I don’t see any relationship between this subject and the power crisis we are having in Z

  22. Socrates I will go thru them. Anywell thanks. Now deal with this dull chap FACT. Meanwhile naya mukupanga tea pa interz.Be in charge Socrates, link up 2moro

  23. its called foreign investment, you dumbasses. How are we going to cater for the deficit? will you start chopping firewood?

    Mugabe’s Speech to the UN General Assembly
    Mr. Mugabe is not the most popular man in the world at present. I have previously written on his land reforms and was as a result erroneously considered to be his supporter. In so far as Mr. Mugabe’s actions mirror those of other African leaders in terms of his attitude to real democracy, I do not agree with him.

    But his vilification, though couched in terms calculated to appeal to all lovers of freedom and democracy (or those who imagine themselves to be so), was and is based on the fact that he took land from white people and gave it to black people. The redistribution may have its problems, but it had to happen. For that alone, I consider him a hero. Shortcomings similar to those he is projected as suffering from are evinced by many other leaders, and yet they are not the victims of the degree of opprobrium that has been visited upon him.

    Mr. Mugabe knows how to fight back, and so he has at the UN. The BBC websites reports it, but I would have thought that the story would be given more coverage instead of the cleverly selected quotations the write-up contains. But inscrutable are the ways of large media corporations in countries which are, at least in part, responsible for Zimbabwe’s current situation.

    The full text of Mr. Mugabe’s speech follows.

    Your Excellency, President of the 62ndSession of the United Nations General
    Mr. Srgjan Kerim,*

    *Your Majesties,*

    *Your Excellencies, Heads of State and Government,*

    *Your Excellency the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Mr. Ban

    *Distinguished Delegates,*

    *Ladies and Gentlemen.** *

    Mr. President,

    Allow me to congratulate you on your election to preside over this august
    assembly. We are confident that through your stewardship, issues on this
    62nd Session agenda be dealt with in a balanced manner and to the
    satisfaction of all.

    Let me also pay tribute to your predecessor, Madame Sheikha Haya Rashed Al
    Khalifa, who steered the work of the 61st Session in a very competent and
    impartial manner.

    Her ability to identify the crucial issues facing the world today will be
    remembered as the hallmark of her presidency.

    Mr. President,

    We extend our hearty welcome to the new Secretary-General, Mr. Ban Ki-Moon,
    who has taken up this challenging job requiting dynamism in confronting the
    global challenges of the 21st Century. Balancing global interests and
    steering the United Nations in a direction that gives hope to the multitudes
    of the poor, the sick, the hungry and the marginalized, is indeed a mammoth
    task. We would like to assure him that Zimbabwe will continue to support an
    open, transparent and all-inclusive multilateral approach in dealing with
    these global challenges.

    Mr. President,

    Climate change is one of the most pressing global issues of our time. Its
    negative impact is greatest in developing countries, particularly those on
    the African continent. We believe that if the international community is
    going to seriously address the challenges of climate change, then we need to
    get our priorities right. In Zimbabwe, the effects of climate change have
    become more evident in the past decade as we have witnessed increased and
    recurrent droughts as well as occasional floods, leading to enormous
    humanitarian challenges.

    Mr. President,

    We are for a United Nations that recognises the equality of sovereign
    nations and peoples whether big or small. We are averse to a body in which
    the economically and militarily powerful behave like bullies, trampling on
    the rights of weak and smaller states as sadly happened in Iraq. In the
    light of these inauspicious developments, this Organisation must surely
    examine the essence of its authority and the extent of its power when
    challenged in this manner.

    Such challenges to the authority of the UN and its Charter underpin our
    repeated call for the revitalisation of the United Nations General Assembly,
    itself the most representative organ of the UN. The General Assembly should
    be more active in all areas including those of peace and security. The
    encroachment of some U.N. organs upon the work of the General Assembly is of
    great concern to us. Thus any process of revitalizing or strengthening of
    the General Assembly should necessarily avoid eroding the principle of the
    accountability of all principal and subsidiary organs to the General

    Mr. President,

    Once again we reiterate our position that the Security Council as presently
    constituted is not democratic. In its present configuration, the Council has
    shown that it is not in a position to protect the weaker states who find
    themselves at loggerheads with a marauding super-power. Most importantly,
    justice demands that any Security Council reform redresses the fact that
    Africa is the only continent without a permanent seat and veto power in the
    Security Council. Africa’s demands are known and enunciated in the Ezulwini

    Mr. President,

    We further call for the U.N. system to refrain from interfering in matters
    that are clearly the domain of member states and are not a threat to
    international peace and security. Development at country level should
    continue to be country-led, and not subject to the whims of powerful donor

    Mr President,

    Zimbabwe won its independence on 18th April, 1980, after a protracted war
    against British colonial imperialism which denied us human rights and
    democracy. That colonial system which suppressed and oppressed us enjoyed
    the support of many countries of the West who were signatories to the UN
    Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

    Even after 1945, it would appear that the Berlin Conference of 1884, through
    which Africa was parcelled to colonial European powers, remained stronger
    than the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It is therefore clear that
    for the West, vested economic interests, racial and ethnocentric
    considerations proved stronger than their adherence to principles of the
    Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

    The West still negates our sovereignties by way of control of our resources,
    in the process making us mere chattels in out own lands, mere minders of its
    trans-national interests. In my own country and other sister states in
    Southern Africa, the most visible form of this control has been over land
    despoiled from us at the onset of British colonialism.

    That control largely persists, although it stands firmly challenged in
    Zimbabwe, thereby triggering the current stand-off between us and Britain,
    supported by her cousin states, most notably the United States and
    Australia. Mr Bush, Mr. Blair and now Mr Brown’s sense of human rights
    precludes our people’s right to their God-given resources, which in their
    view must be controlled by their kith and kin. I am termed dictator because
    I have rejected this supremacist view and frustrated the neo-colonialists.

    Mr President,

    Clearly the history of the struggle for out own national and people’s rights
    is unknown to the president of the United States of America. He thinks the
    Declaration of Human Rights starts with his last term in office! He thinks
    she can introduce to us, who bore the brunt of fighting for the freedoms of
    our peoples, the virtues of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. What
    rank hypocrisy!

    Mr President,

    I lost eleven precious years of my life in the jail of a white man whose
    freedom and well- being I have assured from the first day of Zimbabwe’s
    Independence. I lost a further fifteen years fighting white injustice in my

    Ian Smith is responsible for the death of well over 50 000 of my people. I
    bear scars of his tyranny which Britain and America condoned. I meet his
    victims everyday. Yet he walks free. He farms free. He talks freely,
    associates freely under a black Government. We taught him democracy. We gave
    him back his humanity.

    He would have faced a different fate here and in Europe if the 50 000 he
    killed were Europeans. Africa has not called for a Nuremberg trial against
    the white world which committed heinous crimes against its own humanity. It
    has not hunted perpetrators of this genocide, many of whom live to this day,
    nor has it got reparations from those who offended against it. Instead it is
    Africa which is in the dock, facing trial from the same world that
    persecuted it for centuries.

    Let Mr. Bush read history correctly. Let him realise that both personally
    and in his representative capacity as the current President of the United
    States, he stands for this “civilisation” which occupied, which colonised,
    which incarcerated, which killed. He has much to atone for and very little
    to lecture us on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. His hands drip
    with innocent blood of many nationalities.

    He still kills.

    He kills in Iraq. He kills in Afghanistan. And this is supposed to be out
    master on human rights?

    He imprisons.

    He imprisons and tortures at Guantanamo. He imprisoned and tortured at Abu
    Ghraib. He has secret torture chambers in Europe. Yes, he imprisons even
    here in the United States, with his jails carrying more blacks than his
    universities can ever enroll. He even suspends the provisions of the
    Universal Declaration on Human Rights. Take Guantanamo for example; at that
    concentration camp international law does not apply. The national laws of
    the people there do not apply. Laws of the United States of America do not
    apply. Only Bush’s law applies. Can the international community accept being
    lectured by this man on the provisions of the universal declaration of human
    rights? Definitely not!

    Mr President, We are alarmed that under his leadership, basic rights of his
    own people and those of the rest of the world have summarily been rolled
    back. America is primarily responsible for rewriting core tenets of the
    Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We seem all guilty for 9/11. Mr. Bush
    thinks he stands above all structures of governance, whether national or

    At home, he apparently does not need the Congress. Abroad, he does not need
    the UN, international law and opinion. This forum did not sanction Blair and
    Bush’s misadventures in Iraq. The two rode roughshod over the UN and
    international opinion. Almighty Bush is now corning back to the UN for a
    rescue package because his nose is bloodied! Yet he dares lecture us on
    tyranny. Indeed, he wants us to pray him! We say No to him and encourage him
    to get out of Iraq. Indeed he should mend his ways before he clambers up the
    pulpit to deliver pieties of democracy.

    Mr President,

    The British and the Americans have gone on a relentless campaign of
    destabilising and vilifying my country. They have sponsored surrogate forces
    to challenge lawful authority in my country. They seek regime change,
    placing themselves in the role of the Zimbabwean people in whose collective
    will democracy places the right to define and change regimes.

    Let these sinister governments be told here and now that Zimbabwe will not
    allow a regime change authored by outsiders. We do not interfere with their
    own systems in America and Britain. Mr Bush and Mr Brown have no role to
    play in our national affairs. They are outsiders and mischievous outsiders
    and should therefore keep out! The colonial sun set a long time ago; in
    1980in the case of Zimbabwe, and hence Zimbabwe will never be a colony
    again. Never!

    We do not deserve sanctions. We are Zimbabweans and we know how to deal with
    our problems. We have done so in the past, well before Bush and Brown were
    known politically. We have our own regional and continental organizations
    and communities.

    In that vein, I wish to express my country’s gratitude to President Thabo
    Mbeki of South Africa who, on behalf of SADC, successfully facilitated the
    dialogue between the Ruling Party and the Opposition Parties, which yielded
    the agreement that has now resulted in the constitutional provisions being
    finally adopted. Consequently, we will be holding multiple democratic
    elections in March 2008. Indeed we have always had timeous general and
    presidential elections since our independence.

    Mr. President,

    In conclusion, let me stress once more that the strength of the United
    Nations lies in its universality and impartiality as it implements its
    mandate to promote peace and security, economic and social development,
    human rights and international law as outlined in the Charter. Zimbabwe
    stands ready to play its part in all efforts and programmes aimed at
    achieving these noble goals.

  26. · Diplomat’s son among victims at nightclub
    · Deep bias combines with crackdown on drugs

    Jennifer Brea in Beijing
    Wednesday September 26, 2007
    The Guardian

    At least 20 black men, including students, tourists and the son of a Caribbean diplomat, were arrested in a popular nightclub district of Beijing on Friday, several of the group being severely beaten on suspicion of dealing drugs, witnesses said.

    African expatriates in Beijing and witnesses claim the episode revealed a pervasive prejudice toward dark-skinned foreigners in China.

    According to five bystanders, teams of police, dressed in black jumpsuits and reportedly wielding batons and taser guns, cordoned off a street in the popular Sanlitun nightclub district at around midnight and rounded up almost all the black men there. Many of the men were beaten.
    The raid took place in front of hundreds of stunned expatriates outside the packed bars and clubs of the neighbourhood, which is popular with Beijing’s burg

You chaps must respect other pipos’ opinions and not the way you are bulling Socrates, Chapi, Sage, Kuku, Easy, AM, coz they admonish on the evils MMD dwell in day and night while iwe ka Fact is increasing your stupidity thinking ati MMD nomba yaba yamuyayayayaya !!!! That’s nonsense, you bootlickers, bashetani, bakakuni bakatu, give pipo chance to say what they want and all you can do is to bring forward your arguments, that’s what we call debate. Yes, I would see Pragmatist nodding his head saying “nusosa ba Joze”. Ka Fact, it took me a month to bring out Pragmatist from the wet hole he went hiding and I thought he would come out as a reformed grandpa but to no avail. Like the saying “a tiger will always have spots”, same to Fact and Pragmatist, these chaps will always be bootlickers and they enjoy be used. Awee mwe tabakacinje ifibala, atase mukwai, shaaa !!!

  28. Whoever pasted Mugabe’s speech to the UN is justplaying cheap and stinking politics, the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights also covers people like Morgan Svangirai and I hope when Mugabe ordered his police to spank him senseless, he should have borne this in mind. Elyo, tamuletela George Bush, president saizi yake, elyo manje Sekuru ayamba kulilalila at George Bush is a bully!

    Besides,Mugabe has only scars, we know people in Zambia and Zimbabwe who paid the altimate price life itself lost live so before our eyes and they have not come back from the dead to subject a country to such heinous failures just because they “fought for Zimbabwe’s independence” Mugabe is stickindeed, maybe his neuro-syphillis is now affected his head, it reminds me of Kaunda’s remark “Stupid *****s, I fought for your independence so you should let me to be wamuyayaya” Atase stinking power hungry demagorgue.
