Zimbabwe may appeal the Fund's
JOHANNESBURG, 29 Jul 2004 (IRIN) - The Global Fund to Fight
AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria has dismissed claims that "politics" were
behind a decision to reject Zimbabwe's US $516 million application, forcing
the country to shelve its plans to scale up HIV/AIDS treatment.
spokesman for the Global Fund, Tim Clark, confirmed on Thursday that
the country's proposal was turned down for "technical reasons", but
stressed that the decision "had nothing to do with political
"Zimbabwe's application, like all the others, was
assessed by an independent board of disease experts who found several
technical shortcomings. To suggest that the Global Fund has made a decision
based on political merit is ridiculous. After all, the Fund has worked with
countries such as Sudan and North Korea," Clark told IRIN.
responding to comments made by David Parirenyatwa, Zimbabwe's Minister of
Health and Child Welfare, who accused the Fund of
"These are the sanctions that anti-government
organisations and the [opposition] MDC [Movement for Democratic Change] are
calling for, and this has resulted in a humanitarian proposal being turned
down," Parirenyatwa reportedly told the independent Standard
Zimbabwe is one of the countries hardest hit by the AIDS
pandemic, with an estimated adult prevalence rate of 24.6
AIDS activists expressed disappointment over the Global Fund's
decision to exclude Zimbabwe, citing the already limited resources available
to tackle the disease.
Coordinator of the Zimbabwe AIDS network, Kate
Mhambi, told IRIN that the country would have to look "inwards" for funds if
it hoped to sustain its fledgling anti-AIDS treatment rollout.
were plans to scale up ARV [antiretroviral] therapy treatment, but it seems
as if these plans will have to be shelved. It is still unclear what the
reasons are behind the Global Fund's rejection, but we do hope that it had
nothing to do with politics. Humanitarian concerns should be
completely separated from political issues."
Mhambi noted that ARVs
were currently administered at four major health institutions, but without
the support of international donor funds it was unlikely that the government
would have the capacity to expand treatment programmes.
Zimbabwe had two options: either the country could appeal the Global Fund
decision, or "go back to the drawing board and correct some of the technical
glitches in its original application".
Previous applications for HIV/AIDS
and malaria prevention programmes had been approved and there were "positive
signs" that Zimbabwe would receive the second tranche of a US $9 million
grant to support anti-malaria efforts in the country.

HARARE, 29 Jul
2004 (IRIN) - The Zimbabwe Election Support Network (ZESN), in conjuction
with the Electoral Insitute of Southern Africa (EISA), will hold a regional
conference on electoral reforms in the resort town of Victoria Falls next
Rindai Chipfunde-Vava, the ZESN national director, told IRIN the
conference on 2 to 3 August would run under the theme 'Regional Initiatives
for Electoral Reform in SADC: Strengthening Democratic Transformation
Through Identified Benchmarks in the Region'.
"The aim of the
conference is to create a platform on which delegates will share experiences
in electoral reform initiatives in the region. Delegates to the conference
have been drawn from regional parliaments and civic organisations, and they
will discuss what electoral stakeholders in the region have agreed are best
practices for electoral management, monitoring and observation,"
"We hope to create consensus on the best practices
in election administration and management, particularly at this critical time
in the region's history," she added.
Several countries are facing
elections within the next 12 months, with Zimbabwe holding a highly charged
parliamentary poll in March 2005. Zimbabwe's presidential ballot in 2003 was
condemned as flawed by some international observers, and as a result the
country was suspended from the Commonwealth.
The Zimbabwean government
has indicated that it will implement electoral reforms before next year's
poll. The proposed reforms include reducing the voting period to one day,
using transparent ballot boxes and the appointment by President Mugabe of an
Independent Electoral Commission.
However, opposition Movement for
Democratic Change leader Morgan Tsvangirai has said he has little faith in
the new proposals.
"People are still demanding more measures towards a
democratic order. To be effective, electoral reforms need a solid backing of
independent institutions dealing with electoral disputes, handling political
excesses and taking care of the whole electoral process. There is a deep lack
of trust and fear of electoral fraud - factors that could lead many to
conclude that their vote and their voices are worthless and,
therefore, inconsequential," Tsvangirai said.
Defence complains after Zimbabwe mercenary trial
is adjourned 29/07/2004 - 15:39:03
Prosecutors in Zimbabwe today
dropped firearms charges against three of 70 suspected mercenaries who are
accused of plotting a coup in Equatorial Guinea.
Guvamombe, presiding over the brief hearing at a makeshift court in Harare's
Chikurubi maximum security prison, then adjourned the case until August 18 to
allow the prosecution more time for preparations.
Jonathan Samkange accused the state of deliberately delaying proceedings,
which have been beset by haggling with prosecutors over the charges, evidence
and a possible plea bargain.
He said the prosecution was combative and
"spent a lot of time fighting" with the defence team in pre-trial meetings.
State lawyers did not respond to the accusation.
"Far too much time
has been lost," Guvamombe said. When the trial resumes, he said he expects
the case to "proceed toward finality".
Prosecutors allege Equatorial
Guinea's Spain-based rebel leader, Severo Moto, offered the group more than
?1.5m and oil rights to overthrow President Theodoro Obiang Nguema in the
former Spanish colony. Seven other South Africans and Namibians were arrested
and face charges in Equatorial Guinea.
The suspects on trial in
Zimbabwe, most of them former members of South Africa's apartheid-era
military forces, maintain they were headed to security jobs at mining
operations in eastern Congo.
The alleged leader of the plot, former
British SAS captain Simon Mann, pleaded guilty yesterday to attempting to
illegally purchase weapons from the Zimbabwe state arms manufacturer, but
denied they were for use in overthrowing Nguema.
Defence lawyers said
the consignment of pistols, assault rifles, heavy machine guns, mortars,
anti-tank rockets and other explosives was for use guarding the Congolese

Mann and two associates were already in Zimbabwe when the plane
landed and were arrested later the same day.
The trial against 70 suspected mercenaries has been adjourned in a
Zimbabwe court. The men are accused of plotting a coup in Equatorial Guinea.
They were arrested in Harare in March.
On Tuesday 67 of the men
pleaded guilty to violating Zimbabwe's aviation and immigration laws, which
carry either a fine or a short jail term. Breaking the country's firearm and
security laws is more serious. The trial resumes on August 18, when the State
is expected to wrap up its case.
Firearms and security charges have
meanwhile been dropped against Jaap Steyl, a pilot, and two other crew
members. Briton Simon Mann, the alleged leader of the mercenaries, yesterday
pleaded guilty to attempting to possess dangerous weapons in Harare, but
denied having purchased them illegally.
South Africa's Constitutional
Court has yet to rule on the alleged soldiers of fortune's attempt to get
government to prevent their possible extradition to Equatorial Guinea, where
they fear an unfair trial and the death sentence.
Child Homelessness Rises in Zimbabwe Tendai
Maphosa Harare 29 Jul 2004, 13:32 UTC
The number of homeless
children working on the streets of Zimbabwean towns is rising. A survey
carried out in Harare and nearby Chitungwiza by the Zimbabwe National Council
for the Welfare of Children looks at some of the reasons behind the rising
homelessness. The report cites Zimbabwe's declining economy as the main
reason children end up living and working on the streets. It says the AIDS
pandemic is also contributing to the number of children who leave homes after
losing their parents.
The problem of street kids dates back to the
early 1990s, when the government embarked on an economic restructuring
program. According to official estimates, some 12,000 children are on the
streets of Zimbabwean towns, with five-thousand in Harare and
Tranos Masengwe, a senior projects officer at the Zimbabwe
National Council for the Welfare of Children, says the economic downturn is
wreaking havoc on the extended family system, which used to provide a safety
net for children whose parents, for whatever reason, could not look after
"In cases where these children are accommodated in those extended
families, you will find that the prime motive will not be to accommodate
them, but perhaps, in some cases, to abuse them, and even take their property
that they will have inherited from their dead parents. After using the
children, then they dump the children," he said.
The report says the
number of children who beg for a living or do odd jobs, like guarding and
washing cars to help support families, is also on the rise.
says the government and the numerous non-governmental organizations that run
support programs for children are woefully underfunded. It recommends that,
to the extent possible, homeless children should either be reunited with
their families or placed in foster homes.

Davids declined to discuss his company's
operational plans for "security reasons", but claimed that media coverage of
the company's contract had led to threats and surveillance.

Management to find the 500 military, security, intelligence and logistical
support personnel, said: "We are a small and peaceful company, but since this
contract was publicised, we have been subjected to threats, people calling my
personal cell number and people following us. This must stop now, because we
are not mercenaries."
In an outburst at the Risk Management offices
yesterday, a man who claimed he had given up his job to take up one of the
positions in Angola said he was upset by the links drawn between Risk
Management and Executive Outcomes, an outfit notorious for its involvement in
conflict areas in Africa. "I am just one big ball of stress, because of
this," the man said.
ZIMBABWE GOVERNMENT PREPARES TO BUG INTERNET Fri 30 July
HARARE The Zimbabwe government is planning to acquire
high-tech equipment from China for the purpose of bugging the internet. This
is to enable it to interfere with the flow of information it considers
subversive as well as the operations of independent internet based media
Authoritative sources within Posts and Telecommunications
(PTC) and government circles revealed that the Central Intelligence
Organisation (CIO) is already looking into ways of controlling internet
communication as soon as the equipment arrives.
The whole of
Zimbabwe has during the past weeks been experiencing intermittent internet
break-downs, which PTC management had failed to explain, according to sources
at the PTC.
'They merely said that there was work being done in
upgrading or some security measures being implemented. There are CIOs that
seem to have been permanently stationed at Tel One (the state owned hub for
internet providers) and were carrying out some surveys in the past weeks.
We understand that there are some Internet Service Providers (ISP) who
have agreed to cooperate with the CIOs and let them use their domains
for the tests with samples of equipment brought from China,' a PTC source
Sources within the CIO said that the equipment from China is
expected to be delivered next month. Government would push for the
promulgation of a law allowing it to bug the internet for security reasons.
President Robert Mugabe announced during the opening of parliament last week
that government would introduce a bill in the house to give it powers to
control communication systems for the sake of 'tightening state
An official at the Chinese embassy in Harare, Nan Xiao,
said he could not discuss the matter. 'I canıt comment on that issue of
state security. If the government of Zimbabwe is taking security measures it
is entirely up to them to announce them,' he said.
State for National Security Nicholas Goche also refused to comment. 'Do you
think such issues are discussed in the media? Where have you seen issues of
national security being discussed in the media?'
Tel One recently
asked ISPs to sign commercial contracts obliging them to take 'all necessary
measures' to prevent the transmission of illegal material on
An official at an ISP in Harare, who spoke on condition of
anonymity, said government would need the cooperation of service providers
for it to be able to control the internet even with state of the art
equipment. Therefore, the official added, it would be difficult for
government to clandestinely succeed in bugging cyberspace. Zim Online

Proposed legislation on non government organisations in
Zimbabwe 'sinister' Fri 30 July 2004
HARARE Legislation on non
governmental organisation as announced by Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe
last week would be a 'dangerous law for human rights defenders', the Zimbabwe
Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) said.
Arnold Tsunga, the executive
director of ZLHR and another activist with ZLHR, Tafadzwa Mugabe, who have
obtained a copy of the bill, say the proposed legislation showed the high
degree of government paranoia and contempt for the regional and international
community, whose support Zimbabwe desperately needs.
the Bill, if promulgated into law, would set rules for the operations,
monitoring and regulation of all non-governmental organisations.. It would be
administered by Paul Mangwana, the Minister of Public Service, Labour and
Social Welfare or any other minister that President Robert Mugabe appoints to
Tsunga said in terms of section 2 of the Draft Bill it was
quite self evident from the definition that every NGO and Human Rights
Defenders (HRD) was covered directly by the planned law. 'Since human rights
are universal, interrelated and interdependent it is quite clear that by
using the phrase Opromoting of and protection of human rights' (to define
NGOs) the government has targeted and included organisations that promote and
protect civil and political as well as economic, social and cultural rights
in the net of organisations that it wants to control.'
paper in the possession of Zim Online, Tsunga and Mugabe say the government's
argument, maintaining that the proposed law is meant to protect the public
interest by ensuring that NGOs are governed and administered properly and use
donor and public funds for the purposes for which they were established, is a
'An analysis of the draft bill will show on the contrary
that this is a political gimmick that is meant to administratively create
criminals out of HRDs and NGOs so as to provide excuses for intrusion, clamp
down and closures of NGOs.'
Tsunga and Mugabe argue that Section
9 of the Draft Bill also creates 'a minefield' for possible management boards
of NGOs as it introduces personal criminal sanctions against any members in
their individual capacities for sitting on the board of an unregistered
The proposed bill also creates a NGO Council composed of 5
civil society representatives and 9 government representatives, all appointed
by and at the discretion of the President.
The functions of the
council shall be to consider and determine every application for registration
and every proposed cancellation or amendment of a certificate of
registration. The council will also conduct investigations into the
administration and activities of non governmental organisations 'and to take
such disciplinary or other action as may be appropriate'.
and Mugabe in their paper: 'These requirements are needlessly intrusive and
show an appetite on the part of government to use the law as a tool of
intelligence against the NGOs and their boards and management. The provisions
are sinister.' In their opinion the bill constitutes 'a grave abrogation by
the Zimbabwe government of its responsibilities to the citizens of
Zimbabwe as well as its obligation to the regional and international
The two human rights activists say the bill is meant to
strangle activities of human rights activists in general because these are
usually employees of NGOs or use NGOs as a vehicle or mechanism to achieve
their goals of promoting and protecting human rights.
under international law, human rights defenders are identified as anyone who
acts to address any human right or rights on behalf of individuals or groups.
They say the range of HRDs is so wide that it includes work on a broad
spectrum of issues such as lobby activities against arbitrary arrest,
detention, summary executions, organised violence and torture, female genital
mutilation, forced eviction, electoral issues, prisoners' rights, access to
health care, children's rights, fighting against illiteracy, fighting against
hunger and starvation, fighting for environmental protection, fighting
'The strange paradox is that HRDs in every region
of the world but mainly in dictatorial and undemocratic states where they are
needed most have become themselves the targets of well orchestrated,
systematic and sustained persecution and reprisals at the hands of the state
or appendages acting with the acquiescence of the state.' Zim
'Daily News' wins damages against Zimbabwe state
officials Fri 30 July 2004
HARARE The publishers of the banned
Zimbabwe paper 'Daily News' and its sister Sunday paper have won their court
case for damages against state officials.
High Court judge
Justice Yunus Omerjee on Wednesday awarded damages to the Associated
Newspapers of Zimbabwe (ANZ) amounting to Z$7,750 million (US$ 1550 at the
unofficial exchange rate) against the state-run Zimbabwe Newspapers
(Zimpapers), Jonathan Moyo, the Minister of Information and Publicity, and a
mysterious columnist by the name of Nathaniel Manheru.
judgment by Ormerjee still awaits his signature but is expected to be out
within the next few days.
The lawsuit arose in August 2003 after
the ANZ sued the three respondents for $58 million over media reports carried
in the state controlled 'Herald' claiming that the ANZ's chairman Strive
Masiyiwa was using the 'Daily News' and the 'Daily News on Sunday' to
destabilise the country.
Manheru, widely believed to be Moyo, is
alleged to have claimed that Masiyiwa was using ANZ newspapers to oust
opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) president Morgan Tsvangirai
so he could assume the leadership of the party.
to papers filed in the High Court by the ANZ lawyers, the 'Herald' on June
14, 2003 wrote that Masiyiwa owned and ran a newspaper 'to advance his
personal interests in opposition politics.'
Manheru did not attend
the pre-trial meeting held in chambers before another High Court judge,
Justice Alfas Chitakunye. 'Herald' editor Pikirayi Deketeke failed to produce
his columnist claiming that the column was a product of several contributions
from 'Herald' staffers. The judge then wanted to know who among the 'Herald'
journalist had authored the contentious piece. Moyo's lawyer Johannes Tomana
answered that the minister had been in Masvingo at the time to prepare for a
ZANU PF conference in that Southern city. This led Deketeke to volunteer that
he had written the piece.. Following that admission, after initial denials,
Deketeke was forced to change his court papers to reflect that he wrote the
story. Zim Online

Mutizi was subsequently released.
