HarsH words between UK and ZIMBABWE leaders - continues mad week in ZIM history

Gordon Brown says it is "him or me" at the EU-AU summit

President Robert Mugabe will defy Prime Minister Gordon Brown's boycott threat if invited to attend a Europe-Africa summit, says Zimbabwe's UN Ambassador.
Boniface Chidyausiku said Mr Brown had "no right to dictate" who should be at the meeting in Portugal in December.
It follows Mr Brown's threat that he will not attend the summit of African and EU leaders if Mr Mugabe is there.
He claims Mr Mugabe's presence will "divert attention" from big issues such as poverty, climate change and health.
But Mr Chidyausiku accused Mr Brown of seeking to "multilateralise" an argument between the UK and Zimbabwe.
The leader of one of Zimbabwe's neighbours, Zambia, has already told local media that if Mr Mugabe is not allowed to attend the summit, then neither will he.
"There is a need to continue dialoguing with our colleagues in Zimbabwe. If Robert Mugabe is not allowed, then the whole basis of dialogue is removed," said President Levy Mwanawasa.
'Part of Africa'
In an interview with BBC2's Newsnight, Mr Chidyausiku said Mr Mugabe had a "sovereign right" to attend.
"Gordon Brown has no right to dictate who should come to Lisbon," he said.
"Definitely we are going if we are invited because we are part of Africa."
No invitation has yet been sent to Mr Mugabe, according to senior sources in the Portuguese government.
The sanctions are an indication of the abhorrence of people in Europe about what is happening in Zimbabwe


Gordon Brown


Foreign Secretary David Miliband told the BBC World Service that Mr Brown's view was the right one.
"An EU-Africa summit can only become a media circus if it's dominated by Robert Mugabe sitting next to Gordon Brown," he said.
"We don't think that it's right to be discussing good governance, human rights, economic development as if there isn't the tragedy unfolding in Zimbabwe that is unfolding at the moment, unfolding as a direct result of the policies being pursued by Mr Mugabe."
Further sanctions
EU Development Commissioner Louis Michel has also backed Mr Brown, demanding Mr Mugabe be banned from the summit.
In order to allow Mr Mugabe to attend the conference, EU member states would have to convene before the summit and agree to lift the travel ban currently imposed on him.
But the prime minister has indicated that Britain will call on the European Union "in the next few days" to extend travel and financial sanctions against Zimbabwe's ruling party.
"We are prepared to consider further sanctions," he told ITN. "The sanctions are an indication of the abhorrence of people in Europe about what's happening in Zimbabwe."
The BBC's Europe editor, Mark Mardell, said he understood diplomats were being "very active in trying to find a compromise".
This could involve inviting another Zimbabwean representative, such as a junior member of the government or a civil servant, so that Mr Brown could attend, our correspondent said.
'Serious opportunity'
Portugal, which holds the rotating EU presidency, is keen to invite every African leader to be at the summit on 8 and 9 December, but may let the African Union decide who should attend.
Denominations of bank notes have risen owing to levels of inflation


Mr Brown described the summit as a "serious opportunity" to forge stronger partnerships between Africa and the EU.
He said: "I applaud the prime minister of Portugal for what he is trying to do to build stronger relations between Europe and Africa. This is a summit that is necessary for Africa's sake.
"But of course it would be totally inappropriate for me to be there if President Mugabe [is]."
He went on: "Four million people have left the country. Four million people on food aid because of famine by Christmas, 80% unemployment, life expectancy at 37."
He said humanitarian aid was being stepped up and promised to press the UN Security Council for an envoy to "look and report on the situation".

Zimbabwean inflation FINALLY under 7,000%, slight drop thank god

President Mugabe has imposed a price-control programme

Zimbabwe's annual inflation rate slowed in August to 6,592.8% from July's record of 7,634.8%, according to the Central Statistical Office (CSO).

The slowdown came in the midst of a price-control programme imposed by President Robert Mugabe in June.


Businesses were ordered to cut or freeze prices for items such as bread and milk.
But critics say the measures have just deepened the chronic food shortages suffered by Zimbabweans.


At the end of August, President Mugabe introduced jail terms of up to six months for anyone caught trying to raise prices or wages.
The CSO said the decline in inflation was due to a slowdown in prices for food and non-alcoholic drinks.
Despite the fall, Zimbabwe's inflation remains by far the highest in the world.

A new low in crazy week of ZIMBABWE. STRAY GIRAFFE NEARLY GETS EATEN!

Hungry Zimbabweans target giraffe

Many of the local schoolchildren had never seen a live giraffe before

A giraffe that strayed into a township close to Zimbabwe's capital has been rescued after residents tried to kill it for its meat, local media reported.
The animal was put under police guard before wildlife officers removed it.
A dry spell has forced wild animals into urban areas in search of grazing, animal welfare experts say.
Zimbabwe is suffering chronic food shortages and the animal protection society is investigating claims that a number of pets have been slaughtered.
Huge crowds
It is not known how the stray giraffe ended up in the southern Seke district, Zimbabwe's Herald newspaper said, but police had to restrain those who wanted to kill the animal.
"We had to guard the animal until National Parks and Wildlife Management Authority officials arrived. Some villagers wanted to slaughter it so we had to remain here until it was taken to a safe place," one of the officers told the Herald.
The tall creature drew huge crowds, including dozens of school children, many of whom had never seen a giraffe.
It was not immediately clear where the giraffe was relocated.

Crushing BLOW for the FEW REMAINING MEMBERS OF MYPEOPLE. WHITE ZIMBABWEANS! My essay.

With regret and shame I am to once again supply news of the continuing downward spiral of my country.

This time it is about the few remaining White Zimbabwean farmers, showing their true African grit and termination, and staying with their country of Nationality despite constant attacks and barages from this so called leader Mugabe.



Blow for defiant Zimbabwe farmers

The land reform programme has been accompanied by violence

Eleven of Zimbabwe's remaining white farmers are to go on trial for defying a state eviction order after losing a bid to have the charges thrown out.
The magistrate in Chegutu, south-west of Harare, reportedly accused the farmers of delaying tactics and ordered them to leave their land immediately.
A white farmers' group said the ruling was a "farce" and accused authorities of failing to follow due process.
Fewer than 400 white farmers are thought to remain in Zimbabwe.
The seizure of some 4,000 white-owned farms has seen a collapse in Zimbabwe's agricultural production.
Notices ignored
The farmers appeared in court on Thursday, having failed to respect a 30 September deadline to leave their properties, reported the news agency AFP.
Their lawyer, David Drury, put forward two arguments: first, that the charges of defying the government eviction order should be thrown out; second, that if not, the case should be referred to the Supreme Court because it touched on constitutional issues.
But the magistrate rejected both arguments.
"Despite being served with eviction notices they took no action but [decided] to ignore them, only to raise issues after the expiry and after appearing before a magistrate's court facing criminal charges," said magistrate Tinashe Ndokera, reported AFP.
"I am persuaded to agree with the state [prosecutor] that it's a delaying tactic and that there is no seriousness but a mere attempt to buy time through abuse of process. I dismiss the application."
The farmers could face up to two years in jail if found guilty, say reports.
The case provoked an angry response from Justice for Agriculture, which represents white farmers in Zimbabwe.
Its spokesman John Worsely-Worswick told the BBC that that over the past year nearly 100 farmers had been driven off their land by armed soldiers, police and the ruling Zanu-PF party's youth brigades.
However, Minister of Agriculture Rugare Gumbo told the BBC the state was using the law legitimately to redistribute land.



It is hard for me, I am stuck here watching my nation disintegrate and also BA have STOPPED flights to Harare ALTOGETHER which makes my life so much more difficult. I love it but it is so hard for me to get there I might just become a permanent citizen of the UK, not a glorious Zimbabwean International Student

So I think this is the beginning of the end of a Citizen of Zimbabwe with white skin. How can one man completely erradicate a human race of people no matter what colour they are. He should be placed on trial for white genocide.

Unhappy times.

I think I shall write an open letter to the Zimbabwean government. I study politics I could run for President of Zimbabwe I would make it once again a glorious nation.

R.I.P. my people. The forgotton genocide of White Zimbabweans.

And maybe your president is not such evil person as you present it. Maybe it is time to finish neocolonialism and sanctions.It can not be in such way that white minority exploits the black majority in Africa. It is neocolonialism and present slavery.
Besides your president of Zimbabwe said the truth to Bush and it was very nice of him.
By the way, Are you white setller?

Give us a break MTW, you have no idea what goes on here :retard: Mugabe has killed more blacks than whites, and the way he is going, he has ensured that for years to come people will be dying of aids and malnutrition all because of him.

And why are you including Bush in all this? Everyone of your spakka posts includes him in some context or another and in this case is irrelevant.

Could you explain, what this president hatred by you so much exactly did? Why do you write that because of him people are dying of AIDS in Zimbabwe. I'm sorry, but I have contrary opinion on AIDS. The main cause of AIDS in Africa is not president Mugabe. It is promiscuitism, lack of sexual culture and acces to condoms and low level of medical care. It occurs practically in every african country. Do you know an affluent african country ( maybe only Republic of South Africa ).Besides there is war almost everywhere. There is a powerful poverty in Kongo, Ruanda, Kenya, Niger, Nigeria, Liberia, Sudan and every other black african country. Maybe the poverty in Zimbabwe is not such strong as in other states.. Besides this poverty is cause by sanctions. I don't know. We speak here of genocides and such blokes, who broke the international law and human rights. That means such people, who murder, kidnnapp and torture other people purposely; for instance attacking other countries, or kidnapping and torturing other people - political opponents or innocent people not involved in policy.
Besides if this Zimbabwe will be pro-west country it does not mean that something will change for better. It can be in such way that it will be a coup d'etat and a pro-west chieftain will rule in this state. And then you can know a real genocide.

Re: Zimbabwe news - TUTU calls for action!

I'm sorry that things are continuing to look down for you in Zimbabwe, Rob.


Looking Zimbabwe up on the internet (wikipedia version--,) I see that their leader (Mugabe) has the same first name as you. You're not Robert Mugabe, are you?
\__...Naw...Can't be. Twelve million people. Gotta be more than two 'Robert's...in Zimbabwe.
