ZANU PF Plead For Locals To Have Easy Entry Into Zambia As Cost Of Living Goes Up

ZANU PF Plead For Locals To Have Easy Entry Into Zambia As Cost Of Living Goes Up

ZANU PF officials in the border town of Kariba have pleaded with immigration authorities to relax temporary border pass conditions to allow locals to cross into Zambia to buy basic commodities.

This is happening as prices of commodities in local shops are continuously increasing making it difficult for the common man to afford even the basics.

ZANU PF Kariba District Coordinating Committee (DCC) Chairman, Rhodrect Mugwanhira on Wednesday wrote to immigration authorities at Chirundu Border Post, requesting easier access to daily permits that allow locals to cross into neighbouring Zambia.

Said Mugwanhira, who is also Kariba Ward 6 Councillor:

On behalf of my party, Zanu PF and locals in general, l am kindly requesting your office to issue our locals with border passes.

If issued with border passes, they will have the opportunity to buy their daily needs from Zambia.

The letter was endorsed by ZANU PF Kariba DCC Vice-Chairperson, Jean Kambadzo, and Women’s League Provincial Political Commissar, Joyline Munduna, among other senior party officials.

The Covid-19 pandemic and increased cross border crime have lately seen the tightening of conditions at ports of entry.

Meanwhile, the latest data from the Zimbabwe National Statistical Agency (Zimstats), suggest that an average family of six now requires a total of ZW$68 178 to meet basic needs per month as inflation continues to surge.

Independent estimates however put the figure at more than ZW$90,000.

I am blessed to be familiar with Kariba Border Post, Chirundu Border Post and Hurungwe District Communal lands. Five [5] years ago, it was unheard of to hear people who went to Zambia to seek better treatment there. But as I speak today sick people come as far from as Chiefs Dandahwa, Mudzimu, Matau, Kazangarare, Mzilawempi and Chundu and throng these border posts with requests to go across the Zambezi River for treatments. I have picked Kariba Border Post and Chirundu Border Post because I am familiar with them, but I am told that it is the order or the norm of the day at Border Posts, There are no nurses, doctors and drugs. Kazungula, Plumtree, Beitbridge, Sango, Forbes, Nyamapanda and Victoria Falls, it is the order of the day.. This is very shameful. Our economy has really gone to the dogs. At Independance in 1980 our dollar to British pound was 1:1 and with us$ it was Zim$1:0.80us$. Our dollar was very strong, but now it is in tatters. You may want to question my knowledge, check with economists !!!!! They will confirm it to you.

Mliswa Tells Hopewell Chin’ono To Be Strong

29 April 2022

Spread the love

By A Correspondent- Norton Member of Parliament Temba Mliswa  defended opposition aligned journalist Hopewell Chin’ono after reports came out that he had allegedly hijacked a goat breeding program that was meant to assist the community.

State media on Wednesday ran a story on how the government gave Chin’ono land and goats to start the boer goat project.

Said Mliswa on Twitter, “Having seen the concerted attacks against @daddyhope by state media and other organs my message to him is to be strong. It shows how big you have become @daddyhope. The same happened with me but the more I got arrested and  harassed the more I got popular.

“In my years as a politician what I have learnt is that the public isn’t **** as to be swayed by such contrived state propaganda. They can see through it and understand the reasons behind it all. Just stick with the truth and you will be vindicated. People can see through all the propaganda and machinations. You have to develop a thick skin and withstand it all. If I were you I would go for a constituency now because state media is already campaigning for you.

With your robust and articulate approach to national issues I can only imagine what Parliament would be like with you in it with the likes of Biti, Chinotimba, myself in it. It would be livelier and robust. God is the biggest judge @daddyhope  & in due time will rule.”

Meanwhile Chin’ono says his village elders have advised him not to move the goats where they are.

He posted this message on Facebook on Wednesday:

Thank you all for your messages of support and solidarity. The clan elders have said the animals will not be moved from where they are, it is my ancestral land so nothing will be moved.

The regime can come and LOOT and destroy my rural home, we have no power to stop them! It is not our burden, but its own burden. If they do come to LOOT as they promised to do, a time for accountability will one day come.

It is clear that to continue investing in the project is pointless, that is the end of the project for now until we are under a safe environment to live in peace and develop our rural homes without ZANUPF harassment.

This is a clear example of how it is impossible to invest in Zimbabwe and still retain all your rights. A Chinese has more rights in Zimbabwe than myself. Again that is the regime’s burden!

More importantly, I will not be silenced. I shall not be silenced or intimidated from practicing ethical journalism by a rogue group of people. It is a price I am ready to die for, I would rather be killed than to live like a visitor in my own country and I will never run away from Zimbabwe!

Thank you all once again for your support and solidarity which came through messages, emails and phone calls. Please forgive me if I haven’t responded to your messages, they are many.

It’s also unfortunate to have state media marshalled against a private citizen because of national issues they have raised. This is abuse of power and offices. Respect of property rights is already an issue locally, why inflame it again?

*ANOTHER LITHIUM MINING STORY *

“I am at Prospect Lithium Zimbabwe.
This company is mining lithium in Arcadia Goromonzi. It used to be owned by an Australian company called Prospect Resources and recently sold to Huayou Cobalt (a Chinese company)

The handover take over ceremony was done on the 20th of April 2022 so now it's 100% owned by the Chinese giant.

The challenge now is this Chinese company is bringing all it's skilled and labour from China on the expense of locals. Right now everyone in the company is deputing a Chinese from Human Resources department to production departments. At the site there are already more 100 Chinese and am reliably informed that about 600 more Chinese are coming.

We the citizens are not going to benefit from this investment at all. The lithium product goes to China and the employees come from China. With this current unemployment rate in Zim this cannot be tolerated.

Please make some noise maybe responsible authorities might look into it and secure Zimbabwean jobs to Zimbabwean citizens.

There's is absolutely no special skill required from China, in actual fact, we training the Chinese and one day they will take over.”
