WHAT'S REALLY HAPPENING TO REFUGEES FROM ZIMBABWE???

LINK!!!!

DEVELOPMENT-ZIMBABWE:
"God Only Loves Mugabe"
Elles van Gelder

JOHANNESBURG and PLUMTREE, South-Western Zimbabwe, Jan 7 (IPS) - Sikhumbuzo* was only 18 when he left Zimbabwe for South Africa. He managed to find a job, and sends home close on 150 dollars a month in cash and goods -- although he can't say how many people he supports. Sitting in a café in the financial hub of Johannesburg, Sikhumbuzo (now 25) tells of a mother and sister in Bulawayo, south-western Zimbabwe; aunts, uncles and cousins also get part of what he sends.

Hundreds of thousands of others find themselves in Sikhumbuzo's position, and the influx of Zimbabweans to South Africa shows no signs of diminishing as economic difficulties in their country deepen and the political crisis there continues. Mismanagement of a state that was once a regional breadbasket has brought about hyper-inflation, poverty and widespread unemployment, obliging citizens to make their living across the border -- the principal destination being South Africa. The United Nations World Food Programme estimates that four million Zimbabweans, about a third of the population, are in need of food aid.

Ahead of elections scheduled for March, government has been engaged in talks with the two factions of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC), the target -- along with others -- of extensive human rights abuses over recent years. But even as negotiations are underway, said Amnesty International recently, violations continue.

Just over 40 percent of Zimbabwean migrants in South Africa take care of three to four people, and 30 percent more than five people -- this according to research conducted by the University of South Africa (UNISA) under the auspices of the Zimbabwe Diaspora Forum, based in South Africa; the Mass Public Opinion Institute, a non-profit in Zimbabwe's capital, Harare; and the Institute for Democracy in South Africa.

For the study, a team interviewed 4,654 Zimbabweans in the Johannesburg suburbs of Berea, Hillbrow and Yeoville. UNISA professor Daniel Makina, who headed the team, thinks there are about 800,000 to a million Zimbabweans in South Africa, far less than the more widely-cited estimates of two to three million -- although he acknowledges that these figures need further research.

His findings show that most of the migrants left Zimbabwe after 2001. Their motivation, at first, was related to intimidation and torture by government forces. But for some time now, economic issues have topped the list of reasons for leaving.

Those who manage to enter South Africa find that life in this country can present a new set of difficulties. With unemployment at about 40 percent, there is competition for jobs -- and feelings of anger towards migrants, seen as reducing employment prospects for locals. Work, when it is available, is often badly paid: 60 percent of Zimbabwean migrants earn less than 300 dollars a month, Makina's research shows.

The research also indicates that the vast majority of migrants send home money or goods to an average value of about 40 dollars, monthly. This may not sound like much; but when the number of Zimbabweans in South Africa is considered, a different picture emerges. If there are indeed some 800,000 Zimbabweans in South Africa, of whom just half have work, then they could be sending home upwards of 190 million dollars annually. Added to this is the money sent by Zimbabweans living elsewhere in the region, and further afield, notably Britain.

Florence, 48, is another migrant who is keeping a family afloat -- nine people, to be precise. She arrived in South Africa at a time when it was easy to get a work permit, and has now been in the country for 11 years.

Florence cares for the son of expatriates; none of her family members in Zimbabwe is employed. They do own a piece of land near Plumtree in south-western Zimbabwe where they grow vegetables -- but have struggled with farming in past months because of poor rains.

Every month, Florence sends home money and goods such as maize meal, paraffin, soap, sugar and clothing. She also sends building materials, because she is putting up a house for herself on the family property.

On this land, some 800 kilometres from Johannesburg, goats wander around amid Mopane scrub, the bells around their necks tinkling; granite hills can be seen on the horizon. Florence's son lives in a one-room home, which contains a bed, an old bicycle and some cupboards; he says his mother takes good care of the family.

The relatives had planned to put on the roof of Florence's house last year, but needed additional zinc sheets. Letting her know that two more had to be sent the next month involved walking to a village about 15 kilometres away, to make a call using the phone of a friend.

Makina says his research indicates that two thirds of the Zimbabwean migrants living in South Africa would return home if the political and economical situation north of the border improved. Florence is a case in point. "My mother is old and needs my love. I am only here because I have to (be)."

Sikhumbuzo also wants to go back, but doesn't hold out much hope of being able to do so soon. "I will only return when...President Mugabe is gone," he says, in reference to head of state Robert Mugabe. "For a long time, I prayed every day for change in Zimbabwe. I stopped. I think God only loves Mugabe. For now, I will stay in South Africa."

PRESIDENT BUSH'S FULL ADDRESS TO THE UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY TUESDAY, 25th SEPT, 2007!


LINK TO BUSH SPEECH: CLICK AND WATCH!!!


On Tuesday, President Bush said, "Sixty years ago, representatives from 16 nations gathered to begin deliberations on a new international bill of rights. The document they produced is called the Universal Declaration of Human Rights -- and it stands as a landmark achievement in the history of human liberty. It opens by recognizing "the inherent dignity" and the "equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family" as "the foundation of freedom, justice, and peace in the world." And as we gather for this 62nd General Assembly, the standards of the Declaration must guide our work in this world."

THE TRAGEDY OF A TRAGEDY!!
 
The real tragedy of a tragedy is not just the tragedy itself!
 
The real tragedy of the tragedy is when we cannot learn from the tragedy in order to avoid a similar or even worse tragedy!

"MBEKI INITIATIVE MISDIRECTED???" Rev M S Hove...



I have avoided writing a lengthy contribution on the MBEKI/SADC initiative because I was avoiding "rocking the boat" partly because both the ZANU-PF side and the MDC (in its "collective sense" as Prof Welshman Ncube calls it) were expressing "optimism" that apparently ALL WAS MOVING IN CORRECT DIRECTION!

We now have as the present outcome, the 18th Ammendment (in its "watered down form") being passed in Parliament!

The real tragedy is that a whole lot of fundamental issues are not being addressed!

Firstly, the whole range of Security Forces still "belong" to ZANU-PF! They are not impartial in any way and are under Instruction to "crush" the Opposition esp. the MDC!

Secondly, you can never have Free and Fair Elections if the incumbent does not accept that the people have a Right to remove them!

Thirdly, you can never Free and Fair Elections if Local and Foreign Observers support the Incumbent and will ignore the "cries" of the other side/sides.

Fourthly, you can never have Free and Fair Elections if you do not acknowledge the previous situations so that you know what it is that must be avoided! Were the Elections of 2000 to 2005 "free and fair"? If not (although we cannot change the past), what were the "anomalies"?

The excitement of the MDC ("in its collective sense") appears to me to be completely misplaced!

IN FACT, MAY I ALLEGE THAT THE WHOLE MBEKI INITIATIVE IS ITSELF COMPLETELY MISPLACED!

The Mbeki Initiative may be relevant if its brief is to persuade the Zimbabweans to suspend their Allegiance to Political Formations and concentrate for a specific period to Nation Building as some form of United Front (ie ZANU-PF, the MDCs and everybody else!)

For anyone to try to persuade any Intelligent Zimbabwean that the events of the past week are in the Direction of the holding of "Free and Fair Elections" is asking too much!

Mbeki and Mugabe have a "pact of blood" which would not allow them to arrange for the removal of ZANU-PF!

I only pray that time proves me wrong!

FRIDAY, 21st SEPT, 2007 COMMENTARY!


MDC: SOLD OUT OR NOT????
 
Under no circumstances will I issue any Statement at this point in time!
 
Having said that, I'm very much impressed by The Hon Thabo Mbeki's efforts to help the Zimbabweans to address their problems.
 
To tell you the truth, I now sincerely believe President Thabo Mbeki is more of a man than many of us actually thought!
 
The bottom line is the suffering of the ordinary man!
 
Lets not lose sight of that!
 
PLEASE NOW KINDLY GO TO www.zimfinalpush5.blogspot.com for the detailed links etc.

THURSDAY 20th SEPT 2007 COMMENTARY!

I must admit I'm not fully informed about the so-called progress of the SA Mediation talks. I will issue a statement once I'm really updated.

But our activities as THE ZIMBABWE REVOLUTIONARY YOUTH MOVEMENT are going ahead undisturbed!

We are also aware of the need for Zim workers to demonstrate! We are not disappointed by the so-called "low turn-out"!

The Liberation of Zim will come from outside and its us in the Diaspora who will liberate Zim!

Please, as usual, proceed to the ZIMFINALPUSH HOME PAGE where you will get the links etc.!

GOD BLESS US ALL!

WELCOME TO "ZIMFINALPUSH" WEB-PAGES!


"ZIMFINALPUSH" was established in October, 2006. I was finding it difficult to have my stuff published. The ZANU-PF Media obviously welcomes only the line that they know will make Mr Robert Mugabe smile. (If Mugabe says lets reverse the whole Land Grab Stuff today, then that will be the State Media news for that particular time!)

On the other hand, the various Independent Press newspapers (both print and Internet sites) either could not print my stuff (for reasons best known to themselves) or when they printed anything from me, it was so heavily edited one could not really understand what I wanted to put across!

But very interestingly, "ZIMFINALPUSH" now is "hot cakes" across the spectrum.....

Welcome to "ZIMFINALPUSH!"
