A tour to be sealed with false bonhomie

By Scyld Berry

On Tuesday afternoon at around 1pm the two leading members of the Zimbabwe
Cricket Union - Peter Chingoka, the moderate president, and Ozias Bvute,
widely labelled a hardliner - will attend a meeting at Lord's of that large
organisation which runs English cricket, the Management Board of the England
and Wales Cricket Board, to firm up England's tour of Zimbabwe this autumn.
Two months ago the Management Board was on the verge of postponing the tour.
Armed with a letter from the Foreign Secretary, Jack Straw, which was "as
near as you will get to an instruction [not to tour] in a democratic
country" as they themselves said, the ECB was going to draw a line in the
sand and cough up 1.2 million in compensation to Zimbabwe. But on Tuesday
all of this recent history will be forgotten in a flurry of glassy smiles
and forced bonhomie through gritted teeth. "Peter! How are you, old chap?
Ozias, it's so wonderful to see you! Do come in and have some hemlock - I
mean, sherry." No mention will surely be made of the unofficial guidelines
drawn up by Des Wilson, one of the 16 members of the Management Board, on
the subject of 'Why We Shouldn't Play Odious Regimes Like Zimbabwe.' Nobody
will be so undiplomatic as to ask how Zimbabwe is getting on outside the
Commonwealth, or how many of its people are starving. Mr Straw's letter to
the ECB had made much play of these facts before concluding: "The EU, the US
and others maintain targeted restrictive measures against leading members of
the Zimbabwean regime, and the UK has taken a leading role in this issue.
You may wish to consider whether a high profile England cricket tour at this
time is consistent with that approach." And only if another member of the
Management Board, the chairman of Middlesex and former England left-arm
spinner Phil Edmonds, is in particularly puckish mood will anybody ask of
the Zimbabwe delegates: "Got any players left if we do come this autumn?"

Last month the ICC turned what had been a gentleman's agreement that every
country should tour everybody else into a regulation which, if violated,
would result in a massive fine and a year's suspension from international
cricket. If that was not enough to ensure an ECB volte face on Zimbabwe,
then came the Government's wish to stage the 2012 Olympics in London. Any
postponement or cancellation of the tour would, of course, put paid to any
votes from African nations. So now England's cricketers will be touring
Zimbabwe in November. When interviewed on Sky Sports in Antigua last Sunday,
the ECB's chief executive Tim Lamb, a master of situations, said that
England would be touring in the absence of "an instruction" from the
Government: this, so soon after Mr Straw's letter, was "as near as you will
get to an instruction". The ECB, however, will seize on any sign of
insecurity or disorder in Zimbabwe in the coming months to call off the tour
on safety grounds - allowed by the ICC. Whether England will have a
competent team to play against in Zimbabwe is an entirely different matter.
By Friday the ZCU had suspended 15 leading players, all of them white, and
started the process of suing them for breach of contract. What is, in
effect, a non-white team has been selected for the first one-day
international against Sri Lanka in Bulawayo on Tuesday: a handful have
played Test or one-day cricket, but only two are regulars.

Wednesday's meeting between the two Zimbabwe delegates and the ICC will
therefore be highly important. The ICC president, Ehsan Mani, is in Capri
this weekend, where his mobile phone has not always been working. "It is an
internal matter for the ZCU but it's obviously a concern," he told The
Telegraph. "On the one hand we have to be sensitive to a country's
sovereignty but on the other we have to be sensitive to wider issues like
the game's future." On the same unclear mobile Mani spoke to Chingoka on
Friday and heard enough to persuade him that "the lines of communication"
were still open between Chingoka and the white dissidents, led by the former
captain Heath Streak. There is no specific provision in the ICC's
constitution to deal with an eventuality like a national team which keeps on
being bowled out for 30; but we can assume that ICC officials on Wednesday
will spell out that, if it should happen, the other Test countries could
lose patience and vote to suspend Zimbabwe (seven out of the other nine
would have to agree), and the TV money would sooner or later dry up. A
compromise has to be reached. Perhaps Zimbabwe will become like the West
Indies where white cricketers, once dominant, have withdrawn into the higher
echelons of the economy. Or else they will try to gain contracts in county
cricket under the Kolpak ruling. But for a while yet the ZCU and the
dissidents need each other. Among the immediate bones of contention are the
composition of the national selection panel, and the non-white quotas which
an independent body from PricewaterhouseCooper's proposed and which Bvute
has enforced. In the meantime, the country's cricketers become ever more
politicised and polarised. Heath Streak yesterday called for the ICC to
become involved in the dispute. "The ICC can insist that the ZCU get some
mediating organisation in to solve the problem," he said.

Zimbabwe rebels head for hills as warring factions dig in

Telford Vice in Durban
Monday April 19, 2004
The Guardian

Zimbabwe's embattled rebels took to the bush yesterday to ease the strain of
defying the Zimbabwe Cricket Union ahead of one of the most crucial weeks in
the country's short history as a Test-playing nation.
Several of the group of white players, whose number has reportedly risen
from 13 to 15 with the possible addition of Charles Coventry and Gavin
Ewing, spent the weekend at a remote hunting lodge near Kwekwe, where they
were unlikely to have read reports in British newspapers claiming three
black players were thinking of joining their protest.

The country's cricket future would seem to hinge on events that will take
place in separate hemispheres tomorrow. In Bulawayo a team bereft of
experience will take on Sri Lanka in the first of five oneday
internationals. Across the globe in London the ZCU chairman Peter Chingoka,
will take his board's case to the International Cricket Council.

At stake is whether Zimbabwe is represented by a reasonably strong team who
seem to be constantly in conflict with their administrators, or an
inexperienced team loath to rock the boat. One of those teams is mainly
white, the other almost exclusively black, as are the administrators.

Zimbabwe is likely to field its first all-black XI in Bulawayo after the
rebels refused to play against the Sri Lankans unless Heath Streak is
reinstated as captain, the selection panel changed and the ZCU acknowledges
transgressions the players say were committed by board members.

The rebels and the board are at loggerheads and last week they issued writs
against each other for breach of contract. The dire situation was
complicated by media reports that three black players were on the verge of
joining the rebel ranks but two of the players named said yesterday they
would take their places in the team to play tomorrow.

"If I'm selected to play for Zimbabwe on Tuesday, I will play," said the
batsman Dion Ebrahim, who said he believed his name came to be linked to the
boycotters because he missed a domestic first-class game last weekend with
food poisoning.

Ebrahim said the inevitable breakdown in communication between the players
and the board had taken its toll those who were on the outside of the
struggle looking in.

"I don't know the full story behind either side's position, because the
problem is that neither the union nor the players who have gone on strike
have been in contact with the other players," Ebrahim said.

"We've been left in the dark and that's been very frustrating because we're
all trying to make some sense of all this."

However, Ebrahim said he was "more hopeful than not" of the parties finding
common ground and resolving their differences. Another black player named as
a potential rebel, the mediumpacer Mluleki Nkala, also confirmed his
availability for the match.

"I'll play if I'm picked," Nkala said. "I didn't even know my name had been
mentioned, because I haven't been involved in all this. It hasn't helped
anyone who has been involved in this situation. From what I can see, there's
been a complete lack of communication."

Streak agreed. "The meetings we have had have been held in such a bad
spirit, and there have been tempers and people walking out and shouting and
banging on tables," he said.

"You can't find common ground like that, you just rile each other and become
more adamant to stand by what you think is right instead of backing down a
little to try and get things right."

Streak felt arbitration was needed. "I would encourage the ZCU to find a
mediator, someone respected and trusted by ourselves as players and the
union."

We have been caught out by Mugabe's thugs

It looks very much as if those who govern international cricket are going to
be seriously embarrassed by the turn of events in Zimbabwe, and it serves
them right. By turning a blind eye to the political antics of the Zimbabwe
Cricket Union, whose patron is Robert Mugabe, they got it wrong.

For, as Kate Hoey sensibly pointed out in our sports pages a few days ago,
the ZCU has undoubtedly been infiltrated by Zanu PF thugs. Mainly interested
in black empowerment, this combination is playing ducks and drakes with
Zimbabwe's international - and white - players, thus threatening to turn a
forthcoming series against Sri Lanka into farce.

How this turns out for Zimbabwe remains to be seen but we are left looking
wrong-headed and silly. Alongside what those brave enough to be Mugabe's
political opponents have to put up with, our fussing about the financial
penalties we might suffer if we scrapped a cricket series with Zimbabwe
seems petty. By pushing aside principle and insisting that monetary
considerations come first, we have made cricket look cheap.

Mugabe's supporters will talk their way out of little local difficulties
over their team's selection. They are well practised at pulling the wool
over doubtful eyes. We shall find our own behaviour harder to explain.

Lies, racism and the ZCU

Martin Williamson

April 19, 2004

The events of the last fortnight have left Zimbabwean cricket in turmoil,
but at least they have finally dispelled any lingering suggestions that the
Zimbabwe Cricket Union is an independent, non-political organisation. The
emergence of a political hard core has been made public, and suspicions that
Vince Hogg, the chief executive, and the chairman Peter Chingoka have become
little more than powerless figureheads proved to be true.

The actions of the ZCU following the sacking of Heath Streak as captain bear
all the hallmarks of the way that Robert Mugabe's Zanu-PF party runs the
country. Bullying, rewriting of the facts (usually courtesy of the Daily
Herald, its discredited mouthpiece) and scattergun accusations of racist
plots to bring down the government/board.

Hogg's attempts to broker deals with the rebels had the rug pulled from
under them when his offer to allow them to miss the last round of Logan Cup
matches was overruled by Ozias Bvute, a board member with no authority to do
so. But his power comes from on high.

And the increasingly impotent Chingoka has fallen right in line with the new
powers behind the throne. Last week he used the Herald to claim that the
rebels were all part of a plot to "destroy Zimbabwean cricket". He explained
that the group included players, parents of players, and future players, and
that it was a response to what Chingoka said was a perception that the game
had been hijacked by blacks.

For their part, the rebels dismiss the allegations, countering that it is
the ZCU which stands accused of racial and ethnic discrimination in the
selection of the national team. They also claim that the ZCU is now acting
as a tool for Mugabe, and that anyone who opposes the party line - black or
white - is being victimised. And in Zimbabwe, opposition often ends up with
imprisonment, and far worse.

Yesterday's Observer carried a report from a black Zimbabwean journalist -
Mehluli Sibanda - who explained what happened when he wrote an article
accusing the selectors of favouring players from two clubs. "Since that
article came out I have been receiving threatening calls on my mobile from a
ZCU board member and I am convinced that he is making these threats on
behalf of some people. He threatened me with unspecified action and also
threatened to report me to the Minister of State for Information and
Publicity in the office of the president and cabinet, Jonathan Moyo, that I
am siding with a white man."

Bvute has been widely reported as someone who takes direct orders from Moyo,
and he and Max Ebrahim, one of the selectors, are in the vanguard of the
decision to escalate the racial cleansing of the national side. Henry
Olonga, who fled Zimbabwe after the World Cup last year, said that he knew
where Bvute and Ebrahim stood because of the way they "used to talk about
white people".

Olonga, also writing in The Observer, added: "The players are right when
they claim that there has been 'racial and ethnic discrimination in the
selection of the national team'. Any reasonable person will realise that
they have been targeted because they are white. Racism cuts both ways."

The ZCU no longer acts in the best interests of cricket in Zimbabwe, but is
merely a tool of a corrupt and disgraced government. As with most aspects of
life under Mugabe, increased interference has led to increased inefficiency,
and widespread corruption, and will probably result in the disintegration of
the game.

What is happening in Zimbabwe under the feeble pretence of acting against
plots and plotters is in every way as indefensible as actions under South
Africa's old apartheid regime. White racism and black racism are equally
abhorrent.

What is certain is that the International Cricket Council can no longer take
a convenient back seat and pretend that all is well. Too many accusations
have been made by both sides, and while it might be seen by many as a little
local difficulty, for the sake of the game globally, the ICC has to look
into what is happening before it is too late and cricket's flickering light
is snuffed out in Zimbabwe.

Southend: Mugabe man set to face protest
Zimbabweans from all over the country are to descend on Southend to protest
against a local businessman who has links with Robert Mugabe.

Stalin Mau Mau, who owns the Zim-Link shop in Hamlet Court Road, Westcliff,
was a political candidate for Mugabe's Zanu PF party in the south African
country.

Leading figures from Southend's Zimbabwean community say he has connections
with the party, which has caused international controversy over alleged
human rights abuses and imposing a blanket ban of foreign journalists.

Washington Ali, who is at the forefront of the campaign against Mr Mau Mau,
said: "We have got to a point where we as Zimbabweans feel we are not being
treated seriously - we want to know why nothing has been done.

"We are not happy that this man is being allowed to run a business over
here.

"It sends a clear message not enough is being done about the situation - we
want this man sent back home."

Stalin Mau Mau, who is currently in Zimbabwe, has previously admitted being
a supporter of the Zanu PF party but denies being guilty of any wrong doing.

No Going Back On Kondozi Farm Acquisition - State

The Herald (Harare)

April 19, 2004
Posted to the web April 19, 2004

Harare

GOVERNMENT yesterday reiterated that there is no going back on the
acquisition of Kondozi Farm in Odzi.

It dismissed a story published in the weekly Standard newspaper quoting Vice
President Msika as saying that he had ordered the Agricultural and Rural
Development Authority (Arda) off the farm until "proper channels" were
followed.

The Minister of State for Information and Publicity, Professor Jonathan
Moyo, yesterday dismissed the story in the paper, saying it represented
wishful thinking for the "treacherous Standard and its evil sponsor".

"There is no single right-minded Zimbabwean person who would believe that
The Standard, of all newspapers in this world, can report authentically the
Government's position. Obviously the paper sought to abuse the views of the
Vice-President on behalf of its usual white racist sponsors.

"The true position that reflects the collective decision of Government is
that there is no going back on Kondozi, come rain, come sunshine, and Arda
as an institution is there to stay and relevant authorities will ensure that
happens."

The minister said the Government of Zimbabwe does not make statements
through The Standard "or any of these British mouthpieces".

Prof Moyo said reports about a High Court order were a figment of
imagination peddled by people who wanted to confuse a very straightforward
matter.

He said Mr Edwin Moyo did not own the place, had not owned it before and
would never own it as it belonged to the State and, therefore, to the people
of Zimbabwe.

"The sooner everyone interested in the matter recognises this point, the
better for them," he said.

Kondozi Farm was recently acquired by Government for Arda and the decision
to acquire it was a non-negotiable Government decision. The Government has
said both the law and policy were very clear and would be pursued vigorously
without fear or favour.

Arda started operations at the farm last week after its former owner, the De
Klerk family who had refused to vacate, made way for the authority.

The De Klerk family and Mr Edwin Moyo are said to have had formed a joint
venture company that had purportedly been running the farm and were refusing
to vacate the farm after its acquisition by the Government.

Nigerian President's Behaviour Unfortunate

The Herald (Harare)

OPINION
April 19, 2004
Posted to the web April 19, 2004

Changu Chandagwinyira
Harare

The story in The Herald issue of April 15 2004 about President Olusegun
Obasanjo luring white Zimbabwean former farmers must not come as a surprise
to anyone who knows the behaviour of Nigerians.

In my article entitled "Howard ill-advised on Zimbabwe" published in The
Herald of December 2 2003, I mentioned that our brothers from Nigeria were
the least trustworthy lot in the whole of Africa.

This was not and will never be an exaggerated statement.

By nature our brothers appear very friendly and sincere, but ask anyone who
has had an encounter with these people and you get to better understand
President Obasanjo's behaviour.

I have met quite a few honest and hard-working Nigerians who also complain
about the behaviour of the majority of their countrymen.

Nigerians are gifted at befriending other people, use them for their selfish
ends and desert them at the honour of need.

The U-turn on Zimbabwe made by President Obasanjo before the Common-wealth
Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Abuja, the Nigerian capital, in 2003
is unprecedented in African politics.

That President Obasanjo's policy on Zimbabwe crumbled like a deck of cards
before the 2003 CHOGM under pressure from British Prime Minister Tony Blair,
Australian Premier John Howard and Commonwealth secretary-general Don
McKinnon is not an understatement.

President Obasanjo showed his true colours when he left President Thabo
Mbeki of South Africa hung out to dry on the Zimbabwean situation.

It is well-documented that had it not been for President Mbeki and some
leaders within the Southern African Development Community (Sadc), Zimbabwe
would have actually been expelled from the Commonwealth by Blair, Howard and
McKinnon!

What did Nigeria do to have the Zimbabwean situation dealt with fairly at
the Abuja summit? Nothing.

Instead the Nigerian government was busy accrediting opposition Movement for
Democratic Change legislators as members of the Press. Notice their
dishonesty.

Here I am not complaining about what happened at the Abuja CHOGM, that is
history, and it's good we are out of that useless Club.

I am giving the facts merely to reinforce my argument that the latest jibe
by President Obasanjo should not come as a surprise.

Remember it is the same Nigerian government that refused the Sadc (minus one
of our neighbours) statement denouncing the treatment of Zimbabwe at CHOGM
2003 to be read in Abuja.

The statement was only issued after the Sadc leaders were back in their
respective capitals.

Zimbabwe, I think, should not make a fuss out these white farmers relocating
to Nigeria.

Let them go there and they will soon realise what sort of people they are
dealing with. In that way they will appreciate that without arrogance and
racism, Zimbabwe is big enough for everyone to have a piece of land to farm
on regardless of race.

They (white farmers) will, hopefully, appreciate that the majority of
Zimbabweans are honest, hard-working and have unsurpassed agricultural
knowledge.

President Obasanjo obviously does not know that in Zimbabwe agricultural
expertise is with the blacks, while capital, farming equipment and the best
land were owned by the whites.

That President Obasanjo said he wanted to see Zimbabwe's agricultural skills
remain in Africa rather than be lost to the continent is an exercise in
self-deception.

The white farmers who left Zimbabwe for Australia, New Zealand, Canada and
the United Kingdom are not doing any farming there.

Instead, they are taxi drivers, couriers, bartenders precisely because they
cannot farm.

In Australia, for example, farming is strictly a family business; the
father, mother and children actually do all the farm work, ie, ploughing the
fields, harvesting and tending to livestock.

It is not a secret that in Zimbabwe many white farmers cannot drive a
tractor, let alone a combined harvester; all they do is ride on their
motorbikes and supervise and abuse their black workers.

This is precisely why some within the so-called Justice for Agriculture
still dream of a return to the pre-2000 situation.

But what can one do about such people? Let them continue to dream. Some of
them still dream of the pre-1980 period.

Several of these white Rhodie farmers have relocated to Mozambique and
Zambia but we never got word to say they met with President Levy Mwanawasa
or President Joaquim Chissano.

President Obasanjo's behaviour is, therefore, unfortunate. Unfortunate
because all along he purported to be a neutral figure in Zimbabwe's frosty
relations with Britain over the land question.

While President Obasanjo as head of a sovereign country is entitled to
pursue polices that benefit his people, but to do so at the expense of other
people you cheated into believing you were on their side is disheartening.

What exactly President Obasanjo was promised by Western countries is open to
speculation.

There are those of us who believe that this once African statesman was
pressured into abandoning Zimbabwe by the very same Western countries that
are working day-in day-out to effect regime change in Zimbabwe.

In return, the same Western countries would turn a blind eye to the blatant
human rights abuses and vote-rigging in Nigeria. Otherwise how does one
explain the statement issued by a whole Department of State of the only
superpower in the world condemning the results of a by-election in Zengeza
where one person was killed through political violence?

My sixth sense tells me someone at the US State Department thinks Zengeza is
a country on its own.

Fifty people are killed in Nigerian local elections and the same US State
Department says nothing! Do you see the conspiracy here?

All those former commercial farmers intending to go to Nigeria must to do so
now and leave us alone to manage our Zimbabwe.

Zimbabwe Vows to Continue Land Reform

Monday April 19, 2004 11:46 AM

By MICHAEL HARTNACK

Associated Press Writer

HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) - President Robert Mugabe marked the country's 24th
anniversary of independence from Britain, saying the impoverished country's
economy was improving and vowing to continue the seizure of white-owned
farmland.

Mugabe told thousands gathered Sunday in Harare's national stadium that
British Prime Minister Tony Blair ``still thinks he owns Zimbabwe.''

Appearing thin and sounding hoarse, the 80-year-old Mugabe delivered a
40-minute speech saying he was now in the ``mop up phase'' of his land
reform policy that has seen the often violent seizure of about 5,000
white-owned farms for redistribution to blacks. He has been leader of the
southern African nation since independence in 1980.

The ceremony featured a flyover of aging Soviet MiG jet fighters, rather
than British Hawk jets that were once the backbone of Zimbabwe's air force
but have been grounded for lack of spare parts.

Mugabe accused white-owned export-oriented companies of ``continuing to show
contempt for his land policy and said ``such land owners must have their
resistance broken once and for all.''

Last week, a white-owned coffee processing plant and European vegetable
exporter in the eastern district were raided by police and the army.

``As expected, this far-reaching policy has not endeared us to those
countries of the West led by Britain and the United States, which are
unfortunately linked to us by the cruel history of colonial occupation and
other forms of imperial plunder,'' Mugabe said.

He blamed the country's current economic turmoil on sanctions by Western
powers. The European Union and United States have frozen bank accounts and
imposed travel embargoes on prominent Mugabe regime members.

He also blamed corrupt officials for stealing the country's gold and foreign
currency.

Mugabe attacked the almost 3 million Zimbabweans who fled the country to
work abroad calling them ``people who have run away to wash the bodies of
elderly people in England.''

``Yet we are giving farms to people here - what are you running away from?''

He said inflation was beginning to fall and the country was on the verge of
an economic boom resulting from land reform. Annual inflation is estimated
at 602 percent, one of the highest rates.

The country also faces acute shortages of food, medicine, hard currency,
gasoline and other essential goods. Unemployment is estimated at over 70
percent.

United Nations agencies say about 5.3 million Zimbabweans will need food aid
in the next year following the collapse of local production.

Mugabe's administration has cracked down on dissent since his disputed
re-election in 2002 amid reports of vote rigging and intimidation.

Opposition leaders, trade unionists and independent journalists have been
arrested, and the country's only independent daily newspaper has been shut
down under sweeping new media laws.

ZCU chairman tries to persuade England to tour
Mon 19 April, 2004 11:26

By John Mehaffey

LONDON, April 19 (Reuters) - Zimbabwe Cricket Union (ZCU) chairman Peter
Chingoka will try to persuade England to go ahead with their tour in October
at a meeting at Lord's on Tuesday.

Chingoka and ZCU board member Ozias Bvute will attend an England and Wales
Cricket Board (ECB) management meeting called to discuss the controversial
visit.

The meeting takes place on the same day as a one-day international between
Sri Lanka and a Zimbabwe side seriously weakened by the absence of 13 rebel
white players.

The 13 were dropped after a fortnight of increasing acrimony with the ZCU
which began when former captain Heath Streak questioned the composition of
the selection panel.

An ECB statement said no decision about the tour would be made on Tuesday
and there would be no news conference.

A report from ECB management board member Des Wilson this year said moral
issues as well as security concerns should be taken into account when
considering whether to go ahead with the Zimbabwe tour.

However, last month the International Cricket Council (ICC) said any team
failing to fulfil their tour obligations faced suspension from the
international game and a $2 million fine unless there were legitimate safety
or security concerns.

On the same day British Prime Minister Tony Blair's official spokesman said
the government had serious concerns about Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe's
government but made it clear a final decision on the tour remained with the
ECB.

The ECB are expected to make a final decision next month after consulting
government ministers. England refused to play in Zimbabwe in last year's
World Cup because of security fears.

World champions Australia are also due to tour Zimbabwe this year.

Former Zimbabwe fast bowler Henry Olonga, who wore a black armband during
the World Cup in protest at the Mugabe government's policies, said
hardliners within the ZCU seemed to want Zimbabwe to field an all-black
team.

"The transition from a mainly white team to a mainly black or all-black team
can't be achieved overnight, although this is what Bvute seems to want," he
told The Observer newspaper.

"But apart from sending a message to the Mugabe government that they are an
abhorrent regime, I don't know what will change in the country if England
stay away."
