30 March 2005
The Mail & Guardian (March 18-23 2005) reported that South African labour minister, head of the South African government observer mission told Zimbabwean state owned radio and television that all was in place for a free and fair elections in Zimbabwe.
l have to highlight that there are basic conditions that must be meet in order for there to be free and fair elections in the country.
(1) Opposition political parties must be allowed to campaign. The main opposition political party Movement for Democratic Change was prevented from campaigning. Some press reported that MDC supporters going for rallies were attacked in many areas of the country.
(2) Independent newspapers like the daily news are still under ban.
(3) The government have mobilised armed militias around the country. These militias are terrorising opposition members and forcing people to conform to the ruling government.
(4) Oppressive legislation like Public Order and Security Act (POSA), Information and Protection of Privacy Act (AIPPA) and Broadcasting Services Act (BSA) has not been removed. This legislation removes freedom of association, assembly, _expression and conscience.
(5) The government has monopolised all food distribution. Non Governmental Organisations and churches have been forbidden to do charity to a people who do not support the government. The communist government is using hunger to brainwash a resilient people.
(6) Those who care to look know that Mugabe is a dictator imitating people like Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Mussolini. It is very foolish to expect free and fair election under a dictator.
The South African leaders who are making positive remarks about Zimbabwean elections and democracy are liars who are envious about Zimbabwe. For the past years they have been legitimising the bad rule of President Robert Mugabe. They think they can continue misleading the world.
“A false witness will parish and whoever listens to him will be destroyed forever.” Proverbs 21:28.
The truth is that these South African leaders hate the Zimbabweans who are struggling to remove a wicked government. ”A lying tongue hates those it hurts and a flattering mouth works ruin.” Proverbs 26: 28.
God has used the Zimbabwean situation to expose the hard hearts of these South African political leaders. There are useless, the Patriotic Zimbabweans are going to hold them accountable to the crimes being committed by Mugabe’s regime.
The South African observer mission to Zimbabwe is useless. If it was well balanced it should have started reporting on the current tense situation. Zimbabweans in South Africa who have been denied the right to vote have expressed their desire to vote in Mock elections in Pretoria on 29 March 2005.
SADC cannot solve the Zimbabwean conflict. It appears as if most of its leaders are united against democracy and justice in Zimbabwe.
”Again l looked and saw all the oppression that was taking place under the sun: l saw the tears of the oppressed and they have no comforter power was on the side of their oppressors and they have no comforter.‘ Ecclesiastes 4:1.
Let us not be surprised by the behaviour of South African government and its observer mission. “Evil man do not understand justice, but those who seek the lord understand it fully.” Proverbs 28:5.
”The righteous care about justice for the poor but the wicked have no such concern.” Proverbs 29:7.
Millions of lives have been ruined. Act today. Write letters to your MPs and government urging them to put pressure on Zimbabwean government. Donate food, medicines, clothes and money to individuals and sound organisations doing charity work in Zimbabwe. Every week thousands of people are dying of starvation.
Act now time has run out. Pass our reports to others.
