MDC sued over $14k debt

The Morgan Tsvangirai-led MDC has been dragged to court for failing to pay $14 000 to a telecommunications company.

The MDC headquarters was left empty after the Deputy Sheriff pounced on the opposition party’s offices and seized property in order to settle a $108 000 debt owed to one of the party’s former employees.

The money is for services offered through a contract entered between the parties 17 years ago.

Ericom Communications is the applicant in the matter, while the MDC is cited as the respondent.

“The plaintiff (Ericom Communications) entered into a contract with th e defendant (MDC) on April 28, 2000 in terms of which the defendant hired certain telecommunication equipment from the plaintiff and contracted the plaintiff to install and maintain same for three years. The contract was thereafter automatically renewed from time to time.

“Pursuant to the said contract, the plaintiff installed the hired telecommunication equipment being a BCS 150 PBX Exchange and thereafter billed the defendant for the services rendered and for the monthly rental and maintenance of the hired equipment in terms of account No. 1MOVEF,” the court heard.

According to the court summons, MDC has refused, failed neglected to pay the outstanding amount.

“As at August 25, 2017, the sum of $14 146,37 is due and payable in terms of the said account, being the total of sundry invoices raised together with interest on unpaid invoices,” the court heard.

The MDC is still to respond to the application filed on Tuesday and the matter is also yet to be set down for hearing before the High Court.

Security forces in the Democratic Republic of Congo have shot dead 37 Burundian migrants who were protesting after four of their countrymen were expelled, the UN says.

Its peacekeeping mission Monusco said another 117 were injured during the incident in the east of the country.

Government sources said protesters overran a prison where the Burundians were being held for deportation.

The UN has called for an investigation into exactly what happened.

Monusco’s Florence Marchal said her team was “shocked” by the killings.

The Burundian protesters, she said, “were not happy because four of them have been expelled from Congo. A [Congolese soldier] was killed in the clash, and it led to the escalation of violence.

“Congolese defence and security forces then allegedly responded with indiscriminate firing on the protesters.”

The Congolese interior ministry earlier said troops had fired in the air but were overwhelmed by protesters throwing stones.

In the wake of the killings, Burundi’s Foreign Minister Alain Aimé Nyamitwe took to Twitter demanding answers.

More than 400,000 people have fled Burundi since 2015, when President Pierre Nkurunziza announced he would seek a third term, sparking widespread violence.

Some 40,000 are living in the DRC, the UN Refugee Agency said. BBC News

Who will take over from Mahofa?

Factions in the ruling Zanu PF party are burning the midnight oil in a bid to influence President Robert Mugabe’s choice of successor to Shuvai Mahofa, who was the Provincial Affairs minister for Masvingo before her death on August 14.

The Team Lacoste faction, which is calling the shots in the fractious Masvingo province, is backing two horses to land the position, wh ich makes its holder the most important civil servant in the region.

The faction, which is currently on the back-foot after a number of its functionaries were purged for campaigning for Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa to take over from Mugabe, is backing the ruling party’s chief whip, Lovemore Matuke, and Senator Clemence Mkwarimba to replace Mahofa.

A rival faction, known as Generation 40 (G40), is also leaving no stone unturned, plotting to influence Mugabe to pick from their pot.

Four names top the G40 list of possible successors for the fallen “Iron Lady of Masvingo”, who died before being admitted at Makurira Memorial Clinic at the age of 75, and was buried at the National Heroes Acre.

These are former deputy minister of Labour Tongai Muzenda; Masvingo urban legislator Daniel Shumba; Bikita South legislator Jappy Jaboon and Killer Zivhu â€" chairperson of the Association of Rural District Councils.

According to Zanu PF insiders, the re al battle could be between Muzenda and Mkwarimba â€"considered the frontrunners in the respective factions.

Muzenda is the son of the late vice president Simon Muzenda who died in September 2003, having deputised Mugabe for about 16 years.

“As you know, Mugabe sometimes rewards children of his former colleagues. He may therefore settle for Muzenda because he is not too involved in these factional fights unlike other cadres being tipped for the post,” a Zanu PF insider said.

Mugabe may also try to neutralise the warring factions which are causing confusion in Masvingo and other provinces by appointing a neutral Provincial Affairs minister who may work towards uniting the two sides.

“I think the president will appoint someone who is totally different in his or her approach from the late Mahofa. As you know, during Mahofa’s time there was an outcry in Masvingo because she was not recognising G40 MPs. She was causing unnecessary fights in the province hence the president may try to avoid the same situation by not appointing Team Lacoste hardliners,” remarked another Zanu PF insider.

Psychomotor minister Josiah Hungwe, who is the most senior politician from Masvingo, told the Daily News yesterday that there was no jostling for the position.

“I don’t know about that issue. There is no one fighting for that position,” Hungwe, who is linked to the Team Lacoste faction, said.

Efforts to get a comment from Muzenda and Mkwarimba were fruitless as their mobile phones were unreachable.

Mahofa was widely revered as the Zanu PF political godmother in the volatile Masvingo province.

At the time of her death, she was involved in nasty battles with the G40 faction which is fiercely opposed to Mnangagwa’s ascendancy to the top job.

Mahofa is one of the Team Lacoste functionaries who campaigned vigorously for Ezra Chadzamira to win the Zanu PF Masvingo provincial election against a G40-linke d Mutero Masanganise.

Chadzamira was later endorsed by Mugabe despite a spirited fight from G40 to have the results nullified.

The late Mahofa was in recent months the target of First Lady Grace Mugabe’s wrath.

Grace sledged Mahofa for failing to acknowledge her while chanting a Zanu PF slogan and failing to display party regalia during a recent Zanu PF women’s league national assembly meeting.

This did not go down well with Grace, who went for Mahofa hammer and tongs, claiming there were women who were working with rival party bigwigs to stampede Mugabe out of power.

She also cited an unnamed South Africa-based woman she claimed was splashing money among women’s league members, urging them to dump Mugabe.

Tsvangirai rushed to SA hospital… what really happened?

MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai was rushed to South Africa on Friday to seek medical attention days after the former trade unionist said he was fit to mount his election campaign ahead of a crucial 2018 vote.

The veteran politician â€" who has been picked to represent Zimbabwe’s opposition al liance in the presidential election expected early next year, his fourth time as a presidential candidate â€" was reportedly rushed to the Harare International Airport in an ambulance, before boarding a private plane to neighbouring South Africa.

He was said to be on a stretcher bed when he was taken onto the private plane around 2am Friday, authoritative sources told the Daily News.

The social democrat, who has dominated Zimbabwean opposition politics since the formation of the MDC in 1999, was first diagnosed with cancer of the colon in June last year and has been undergoing treatment in Africa’s largest economy.

Tsvangirai â€" who was Zimbabwe’s prime minister in an uneasy coalition government with the 93-year-old Mugabe from 2009 until 2013 â€" has said after repeated cycles of treatment, he was fully fit at a crucial time when his health is the main wild card before the crucial 2018 presidential vote.

“Yes, Tsvangirai has been taken to South Af rica for medical attention but for the rest, ask his spokesperson Luke (Tamborinyoka),” said a senior party official who requested anonymity.

Tsvangirai’s deputy, Nelson Chamisa, reportedly stood in for Tsvangirai during an MDC Alliance meeting in Kadoma on Friday.

Reached for comment, Chamisa referred questions to Tamborinyoka.

“We are just finishing a meeting of the MDC Alliance principals,” said Chamisa. “Get in touch with Luke, he will help you.”

Tamborinyoka declined to comment.

“I cannot comment on speculation,” he said.

Tsvangirai was last seen in public at Mtengwe Building in Gokwe South on Sunday, where he addressed an MDC Alliance rally.

He reportedly told the rally: “We should all unite as Zimbabweans to remove the devil amidst us because it would not help to say I belong to this or that party then we are all in the same pitfall.”

In remarks apparently pointed at his deputy Thokozani Khupe, who is protesting the consummation of the alliance over the distribution of seats, Tsvangirai said:

“We are saying, while it is important to have Members of Parliament and councillors, it is critically important to get the grand prize and that grand prize is the one that would transform the lives of people.”

A Political Cooperation Agreement (PCA) signed by Tsvangirai along with six other parties â€" which makes no secret of the MDC’s dominance in the whole arrangement â€" there is a clause that seemingly looks beyond the increasingly frail opposition leader.

According to the PCA â€" which is the basis of the MDC Alliance â€" no-one outside the Tsvangirai-led MDC can take over from him in the event that he dies or gets incapacitated before next year’s polls.

Crucially, the deal secures the MDC’s leadership of the MDC Alliance in the event that a vacancy occurs at the top before or after the elections.

“In the event of a vacancy occurring fo r the presidency for whatever reasons before the election, then the alliance partners shall select another candidate and if such vacancy occurs after election then the provisions of the national constitution shall apply,” reads part of the PCA.

Tsvangirai recently opened up on his health to the Daily News.

“You know my hair just went out the other day. But I had stayed with my hair for almost eight (chemotherapy) sessions.

“I’m still under treatment. And as you can see, I am responding well to treatment,” he told the Daily News at his residence.

Patients undergoing chemotherapy often suffer side effects, including nausea and vomiting, which is usually controlled through antipsychotic or anti-vomiting medicine.

“I was so fortunate, I didn’t go through those, vomiting and all that, no I didn’t,” revealed the MDC leader.

The former prime minister said he was fortunate to be receiving treatment at the best cancer facility in So uth Africa but was quick to bemoan the steep treatment costs.

“That is why people die. It’s totally unsustainable,” he said. Daily News
