Insist on Your Right to Education

Uneducated citizenry is like a pitch any game can be played on it. Illiteracy is what has given the politicians in Ghana the chance to fool so many people for so a long a time.

Mugabe loud about Libya visit

ZIMBABWE’S ageing President Robert Mugabe yesterday departed for Libya to attend the AU summit, which kicks off today in Tripoli.

  • Zuma tells Mugabe to quit stalling tactics

    Dogged by rumours of ill-health owing to his secret jaunt to Dubai, Mugabe, 85, this time made sure the whole of Zimbabwe knew he was going away and for what purpose.

    State radio had all the details complete with Mugabe’s extended title: “The head of state and government and commander in chief of defence forces, President Mugabe, has left for Libya.”

    Much had been pinned on President Jacob Zuma’s visit to Zimbabwe last week, but so far it seems the jury was still out on two matters — Mugabe’s health and Zimbabwe’s contentious power sharing.

    The octogenarian has reportedly developed a habit of holding onto railings.

    Notably at the Harare agriculture show on Friday, Zuma easily went up the small stairway to the podium, while his elderly counterpart had to use a railing for support.

    As for difficult matters about Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s complaints to Zuma, it appears the South African president has deferred his verdict to next week when the SA Development Community meets in the DRC.

    Zuma, who is the chairman of SADC, told Zimbabweans that “no problem was insurmountable”.

  • Zimbabwe’s schools might not open on Wednesday if the government fails to persuade teachers to call off their intended strike.

    Teachers’ unions have warned government of a stay-away if their salaries are not improved.

    Teachers earn less than R1,500 a month.
