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’s party walk out of meeting

Angry members of President Mugabe's party walked out of a meeting on Sunday following comments made by Deputy Prime Minister Arthur Mutambara about last year's parliamentary and presidential elections. Cabinet members attended the meeting to review the work of a unity government formed by Robert Mugabe and Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai.

Zanu-PF members claimed they abandoned the meeting due to the "provocative statements" made by Mutambara. Justice Minister Chinamasa said, "The meetings were going on very well until this morning (Sunday morning) when Deputy Prime Minister Arthur Mutambara made some very provocative statements that the parliamentary and presidential elections of last year were all fraudulent, null and void. We, members from the Zanu-PF side, walked out in protest at the reckless and irresponsible utterances by Professor Mutambara because they are intended at undermining the legitimacy of a party in the inclusive government."

The incident has drawn attention to the ongoing hostility between Mugabe and Tsvangirai since the alliance was formed six months ago.
