“Rtd Gen Chiwenga not planning coup” Emmerson Mnangagwa

In an interview with sections of the private media, President Emmerson Mnangagwa dismissed reports there is a rift between him and his deputy, Rtd Gen Dr Constantino Chiwenga.

President Mnangagwa said no one has so far brought to him substantial evidence to back the claims that there is bad blood between them. President ED is quoted by The Zimbabwe Independent saying that he dismissed rumours of a possible coup against him when he was in Russia two weeks ago. He said Chiwenga knows that he (Mnangagwa) is the elder.

Said President Mnangagwa

“People have the freedom of speech, including the freedom of lies. When you ask those people and ask them to bring evidence of those rifts, not a single person comes forward. We grew up together during the war with Chiwenga. He was a very young man then. I know the boys very well and they know I am their elder. We were called by some people who said, I was not going to be allowed back in the country, and I laughed and advised that person to enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep.”

Prophet Shepherd Bushiri charged with fraud

Prophet Shepherd Bushiri

Enlightened Christian Gathering Church leader Shepherd Bushiri and his wife Mary were due to appear in the Pretoria Specialised Commercial Crimes Court on Monday after their arrest on Friday on fraud and money laundering charges.

The media have been barred from entering the building.

Outside court, a sizable group has gathered in support of the “Major One”, as Bushiri calls himself.

Details of the charges are as yet unknown.

Hawks spokesperson Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said the case concerned allegations of fraud, money laundering and the contravention of the Prevention of Organised Crime Act. “[The offences were] committed from 2015 in relation to exchange control regulations related to foreign currency in an amount of $1,147,200 [R13.96m].”

Thousands of his followers gathered at the Pretoria Events Centre on Sunday. Throughout the service, congregants chanted Bushiri’s name, with some holding placards on which was written “I will die for you Major 1” and “We love you Major 1”.

When the time for contributions came, congregants dug deep into their pockets. Some placed up to R1,600 in cash in envelopes while others swiped R1,000 from bank cards on speed points provided, the Sowetan reported.

A female congregant, who did not want to be named, vowed her support: “The arrest of papa [Bushiri] is just an obstacle that will eventually pass. People are trying everything to bring him down but we’ll stand by him. People are jealous of papa.”

The Sunday World previously reported that the Hawks were probing allegations that as much as R15m a month was leaving South Africa for his home country of Malawi. The money was allegedly transported out of South Africa in Bushiri ’s private jet and other vehicles.

Bushiri’s charismatic Enlightened Christian Gathering church has several branches in the country and in other southern African countries.

Jah Prayzah refuses to feature on Baba Harare video

The apparent harmony between Baba Harare and Jah Prayzah could prove to be a smokescreen following revelations that the Military Touch Movement boss refused to feature on a video of the collaboration he did with his former lead guitarist.

Baba Harare and Jah Prayzah collaborated on the former’s song titled “Guzuzu” and the video of the song was released on Monday.

Jah Prayzah refused to be part of the production arguing that he no longer makes videos for stale songs. Many people were expecting to see Jah Prayzah on the video, but Baba Harare had to forge his former leader’s lines on the original song for the video to go through.

Baba Harare said he approached Jah Prayzah when they were ready to make the video, but he was told that his move was not in line with the latter’s current operation strategy.

He claims Jah Prayzah said he only makes videos for new songs and Baba Harare’s “Guzuzu” is ‘too old’ to deserve his attention.

“When we were about to do the video, I approached Jah Prayzah with a request for him to feature on the video. I was surprised when he told me that he no longer does videos for songs that are already in the public domain,” said Baba Harare.

“He said his current style is to have a song and its accompanying video going on the market at once. He said we were supposed to do the audio and video at the same time. He said it is too late to revisit a stale song to have a ‘resurrection’ video. I was disappointed because I wanted him to be part of the video.

“I had to do his lines on the video. I did not have an option since I wanted to push this song through a video like we did with ‘The Reason Why?’ that has become a hit.”

Baba Harare’s “The Reason Why” that has become a hit across the country was catapulted by the video he released recently.

Although “Guzuzu”, the collaboration with Jah Prayzah, is also getting considerable airplay Baba Harare wanted to solidify its penetration into the market through a video.

He was not expecting a blunt snub from Jah Prayzah.

“I respect him because he taught me a lot. I am what I am today because of him. I had to do the video without him because I respect his decision. I will always look up to him for advice. He remains my elder in the industry,” said Baba Harare.

Jah Prayzah, through his manager Keen Mushapaidze, confirmed they no longer do videos for old song, but claimed they failed to make time for Baba Harare’s production because of a busy schedule.

“When Baba Harare was doing his video, Jah Prayzah had a busy schedule and could not make time for the video. However, if Jah Prayzah told Baba Harare that he could not feature on a video of an old song, he was right because we no longer consider old songs for new videos,” said Mushapaidze.

“The disadvantage of doing a video for an old son is that people would have already made their imaginary scripts from the audio storyline. There is danger of coming up with a video that does not support people’s notions about the song. That is our new position and I believe Jah Prayzah was frank to Baba Harare when he told him so, but I believe my artiste would have broken the rule if he had time for the video. A busy schedule contributed more to Jah Prayzah’s failure to feature on Baba Harare’s video.”

Despite Jah Prayhzah’s absence, Baba Harare’s “Guzuzu” video, which features talented actress Delma Chiwereva has been received well by his  fans

Soul Jah Love denied UK visa

ZimDancehall King Soul Jah Love was recently denied a UK visa because of medical fees owed to the U.K. National Health Service (NHS)

Confirming the development, the organisers said in a statement that Tocky Vibes has been dropped in to replace Soul Jah Love.

“With much regret, we would like to announce that Soul Jah Love will no longer be performing at Zim Connect ’18. His visa was unsuccessful as a result of outstanding payments owed to the U.K. National Health Service (NHS) following an emergency hospital admission in 2016,” said the statement.

It is believed that Soul Jah Love owes £9000 in medical bills to NHS.

The organisers are also appealing to his fans to help settle the bills so that the singer can in the future be allowed entry into the UK.

“If there are concerned individuals or organisations interested in pooling funds to settle the payment arrears, please get in touch with the AFROKINGS team. Our team will redirect you to an independent third party who will be responsible for handling the settlement,” they said.

Tocky Vibes will now perform in his place as the promoters are in the process of securing his visa which they hope will be out on Wednesday 21st February 2018.

The star is set to share the stage with Ammara Brown, ExQ, Stunner and Trevor Dongo who arrived in the U.K on Monday 19th February 2018 to join Charlie Kay.

Intelligent people masturbate more

masterbation-doesnt-break-hearts-single-150x150Studies have found that bright people masturbate more often, and they have good reason to do so.

Educated people partake in self-pleasure more often than their less-educated counterparts, according to a National Health Survey’s findings obtained at the Kinsey Institute. This is not surprising when you consider the fact that it’s a great form of safer sex, and that it even has some health benefits to add to the awesomeness that is an orgasm. There’s a lot of guilt and negative associations that have been tacked onto performing the ‘five-finger-shuffle’, but it’s perfectly natural and you shouldn’t feel bad about this good feeling.

Playing with yourself has been found to release stress for a lot of people, as the body releases the neurotransmitter dopamine during the whole “shebang” and this then helps lower blood pressure and tension via hormonal tension release. Jerking-off also causes you to release other chemicals that reinforce the immune system and build white blood cells, and the endorphins that you get when you climax are an excellent way to ease anxiety. When you show yourself some self-love in this physical way, you get a shot of prolactin in the body, and that can help you sleep better at night.

Bonus to touching yourself intimately on the regular is that it gives you a great opportunity to check your goods out, often. You can examine your testicles for nodules and texture inconsistencies that testicular cancer might present, and notice if you develop any other strange bumps, lumps or warts anywhere else on your man-zone. It’s also a good time to scope out for weird freckles and birthmarks that change shape or colour, as this may be an indication of melanoma to watch out for. Often, the earlier we spot these things, the easier they are to treat at your nearest healthcare provider.

Regular ejaculation may be associated with lower incidences of prostate cancer, and this is believed to be due to the regular flushing of the prostate seminal fluid that is caused.

Masturbation is relatively safe but there are a few things to keep in mind if you want to keep your solo-love sessions incident free.  If you’re circumcised, it may be a good idea to use lubricant to prevent skin irritation or chafing when you get whipped-up in the moment and forget to go gentle on your man parts.  If you use toys, make sure you keep them clean with non-abrasive soap and water, especially if you have a tendency to share them with others.  Using a condom on your dildo is a fantastic way to ensure that you keep yourself safe and the toy clean.

How’s that for inspiration to take self-serving and self-sufficient matters into your own hands?

Rhodes must fall leader is in reality not a very good person

NtokozoQwabe_FacebookThus it is fair to say that Ntokozo Qwabe, one of the leaders of the Rhodes Must Fall movement at Oxford University is less a man, more a venereal disease.

Qwabe felt quite proud of himself when he reduced a waitress to tears – by writing “we will tip when you return the land” on the bill.

I used to wait tables. I was rubbish at it, but I did it, and I know exactly how much hard work is involved.

Any customer service job involves dealing with difficult people, and waiting tables or tending bar adds the stress of occasionally dealing with drunk difficult people.

It is high-stress hard work and the people who are good at it should never be sold short, theirs is a genuine skill.

All of this to say if Qwabe had pulled that on me; he would spend the rest of his life eating through a straw. And it would be worth the prison sentence.

Of course one wonders if Qwabe would have done the same thing, had he been dealing with a waiter rather than a waitress.

The fact is however that this does illustrate something important that is missed in power-dynamics driven social justice, and why it utterly and completely fails on every conceivable level.

That waitress was socio-economically subservient to Qwabe. He was eating at the restaurant, she was his worker, and he gloated about not paying her.

His economic privilege could further be expressed by the fact that he is known primarily for being a protester at Oxford University, one of the top universities in the world, and all we know about her is that she waits tables in South Africa.

And yet power-dynamics driven social justice would hold him arbitrarily to be “Punching up” because he is black and she is white.

It fails and it fails hard, because it is not a theory of social justice, it is an excuse to look the other way over hypocrisy.

Qwabe is not all black people, and his actions are not a blow against all white people, he is a singular scumbag.

There are white people who do similar things, people who leave religious tracts disguised as money, people who feel righteous in not tipping, people who use racial slurs. It is often easier to treat those who treat others badly as individuals, when they share your skin tone.

And that is the singular signature of injustice – the fact that sometimes somebody is just bad, whatever their skin colour, gender, sexual identity or whatever.

Qwabe is not rendered “Not bad” by virtue of the fact that he has a dark skin tone, because he is not “black people”. He is a singularly unpleasant person.

Power dynamics can’t deal with this; it has to render people down into classes, devaluing their individual quirks and natures.

There are absolutely horrible people who have had every disadvantage in life, and their horribleness does not excuse those disadvantages.

But those disadvantages don’t particularly change their horribleness.

The trouble is, when you are part of a disadvantaged group one is often taken as a representative sample, while when you are in the dominant group even clear majorities become #notall<insert group>.

We need to break away from this, and see people like Qwabe for what they are – not an expression of black anger, or even an example of how black people can be racially prejudiced too.

He is Qwabe, that guy who gloats about being a dick to waitresses.

Rhodes Must Fall has since then bleated out tweets in support of Qwabe, which quite frankly I think spells the death knell for them.

Why?

Because first of all, they’re supposed to be a student movement and waiting tables is a very traditional student job – I’m sure students who do it just love the thought of getting political lectures instead of the tips they need to pay for things like their studies.

And second. Rhodes Must Fall want to take the mantle of champions for the working class, then they need to respect the work being done – and they have demonstrated that they absolutely don’t. How you treat your waiter is who you are – because it is who you are when you’re the boss.

And it must be noted here, that for all the bleating Rhodes Must Fall has tweeted about “conservative whites” – when it came time for action? When it came time for something to be done?

It began with a guy called Sihle Ngobese, the spokesman for Western Cape social development MEC Albert Fritz, giving the waitress R50. That has snowballed into a GoFundMe campaign that has raised thousands from people of all races and many nationalities.

A campaign that shows something that is important to remember – while some people may be horrible, the vast majority, black, white or whatever will not stand for it.

And because of this, the actions of those who take pride in hurting others will always be opposed by those who see each other’s humanity.

That is wonderfully human – and that is how humanity wins. Often we are only enemies so long as we allow those who would do us harm to fool us into thinking we are, when you push through the lies we are human.

So go out this next month, go out and tip your waitress or waiter well, greet their service with a smile, be who you would like to work for not just for one woman working at Obz, but for all of those who serve you.

Kindness is the most revolutionary thing that we as a species can pull off, as it frees ourselves from those that would divide and dominate us with lies.

So be free

Wicknell Chivayo: Criminal mastermind

WicknellWicknell Munodaani Chivayo, a hefty wealth-flaunting “tenderpreneur”, is a criminal mastermind with many victims in his wake.

Chivayo, 35, shot to national prominence in December last year after signing a sponsorship deal with the Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) which was estimated at $1 million.

He bound himself to clear Zifa’s $180,000 debt to the former national team coach Tom Saintfiet by March 31, 2016. The rest of the money, according to the contract, “will be progressively released on request by Dr. Phillip Chiyangwa throughout his tenure.”

In February this year, Chivayo committed himself to paying national team coach Kalisto Pasuwa $7,000 per month as salary, after buying the Dynamos legend a brand new Toyota D4D. Subsequently, small amounts have been released to Zifa – some of it as bonuses for players.

The Rolls Royce-pushing Chivayo displays pictures of himself on Facebook shopping in Dubai, South Africa and the United States. He frequently posts pictures of himself flying first class to various destinations. Yesterday, it was “to spend the weekend with my sisters in London”. He has described himself as a millionaire and once posted a picture of himself meeting President Robert Mugabe in 2014 — circumstances of which were not explained.

Then on Monday, Chivayo abruptly announced he was cancelling his sponsorship of the national team after The Sunday Mail revealed that Pasuwa had not been paid a penny since Chivayo’s commitment in February.

His response was most shocking. He called the reporter “foolish and zealous” for reporting the truth, even as he confirmed he had not released money to pay Pasuwa.

“As soccer supporters, journalists must also all remember I’m doing something no Zimbabwean has done since Independence, so the least I expect is appreciation,” he demanded, while claiming to have so far given Zifa $478,000 of the promised $1 million.

Chivayo’s intemperate outburst while reacting to a factual Sunday Mail story had the unwanted effect of antagonising many journalists, inevitably attracting questions over his purported wealth while inciting interest in his criminal past.

“Football needs corporate sponsors, not lumpen, petty bourgeois sponsors who in the first place are parasitic tenderpreneurs,” observed The Zimbabwe Independent editor Dumisani Muleya on Twitter, echoing a similar observation by Higher Education Minister Professor Jonathan Moyo.

He went on: “I don’t understand social stratification in which thieves are celebrated and considered role models by society. Social decadence writ large!”

Denzel Washington, in the movie American Gangster, says “the loudest one in the room is the weakest one”. What he was trying to explain is that when he had too many problems, it was because he was flaunting his wealth.

His problems greatly diminished when he wasn’t.

A drug dealer in the movie, Washington’s problems were of course self-invited. But his point was that whether you are engaged in illegal activities, or living on the straight and narrow, always be low key because money does not make noise unless if it is coins.

Chivayo probably did not watch that movie and perhaps the reasons can be found in his inglorious past — one of depriving others of their hard-earned money and spending it on fast cars and loose women.

In March 2011, The Chronicle, in a front page splash, described Chivayo as an “internet fraudster” and “one of the most wanted criminals in Southern Africa” after he allegedly defrauded six people of R2 million.

The elaborate con, according to prosecutors, involved identifying wealthy targets and the creation of websites for non-existent companies and then pretending to source or supply goods.

In that case, it was alleged between October and December 2009, he would pretend to be a purchasing manager for a company and approach well-heeled victims, carefully selected through contacts in the banking sector. The targets were told that the company he was representing needed to acquire certain goods — the victims could make huge profits by supplying the company at inflated prices.

There was a catch: the targets had to acquire the goods from two South Africa-based companies identified by Chivayo, which also had make-believe websites — Dolitel Trading and Redgold Investments.

Prosecutors said once the victims transferred money to the two “companies” to buy the goods that Chivayo’s “company” wanted, the websites vanished overnight and all contact numbers for the companies would not go through.

Chivayo eventually beat the charges after a Bulawayo magistrate, Godwin Sengweni, acquitted him having rejected the evidence of an accomplice witness, Norman Mpofu.

Years earlier, in 2004, Chivayo was handed a three-year jail term with labour after being convicted of theft by false pretences involving R837,000. He “unlawfully and with intent to steal” misrepresented to Digby Sean Nesbitt that he had deposited R837,000 into Shane Peter Nesbitt’s bank account in South Africa in exchange for Z$37,6 million. After receiving the Z$37,6 million, he neglected to deposit the Zimbabwe dollar equivalent.

He served his sentence at Chikurubi Maximum Prison.

Returning from prison, Chivayo continued his hustling business, eventually stumbling on the tender industry — specifically in the energy sector.

A company in which he says he holds five percent shareholding, Intratek Zimbabwe, was originally awarded a $183 million tender for a 100 megawatt solar plant in Gwanda. It was later cancelled, and then re-instated in 2015.

Intratek has gone on to win the tender to restore Munyati power station’s 100 megawatt power generation capacity with an Indian partner, Jaguar Overseas Limited.

Chivayo is listed as the managing director of Intratek on the company’s website, but he appears to be in fact a mere front-man for Asian investors, among them Ibrahim Yusuf (executive chairman) and Tariq Yusuf (director). They are thought to have Indian roots.

An energy sector expert told The Chronicle last night: “Chivayo, for all his criminal tendencies, has been smart in activating political contacts he has established over the years to make a career out of winning tenders. What he’s not, as some have rather foolishly suggested, is ‘Zimbabwe’s Donald Trump’.

“This guy is in fact a runner for powerful and rich Asian partners who use him to win tenders in Zimbabwe. The money he’s flashing around is not dividend from profits of a large corporation but ‘thank you’ payments from the real beneficiaries of these tenders. Call him a well-paid runner if you like.”

This perhaps explains Chivayo’s astonishing bravado in an attack on the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (Zimra) earlier this week when he claimed the tax authority did a “fictitious nonsensical lifestyle audit” and demanded $1,4 million.

Zimra most likely will never tie down his money because “thank you” tokens from foreign handlers are unlikely to be domiciled in Zimbabwe.

Financial inducements are a bane of Zimbabwe’s tender system, but name dropping of powerful politicians’ names also helps. Chivayo has previously claimed to be the nephew of the late Vice President John Nkomo. We have been unable to independently verify this. His picture with President Mugabe, whose subsequent “abuse” has irked the President’s Office, according to sources, is now used as a major bargaining chip. “I’ve access,” it says.

After declaring bankruptcy, American rap star, 50 Cent, was photographed with stacks of $100 bills. When Judge Ann Nevins demanded to know exactly how the supposedly bankrupt megastar could get so much money, 50 Cent stated: “Hip-hop culture is widely recognised as aspirational in nature. The standard by which artists and fans engage is commonly tied to money, jewelry, products and advertising over social media.

“Products and brands are now marketed through social media as an effective way to engage with consumers. Just because I’m sensitive to the needs of maintaining my brand does not mean that I’m hiding assets or that I’ve lied on my filings in this Bankruptcy Case, neither of which is true.”

Convicted conman Chivayo was perhaps dead honest when he cautioned, in The Daily News on Monday, that those taken in by his show of supposed wealth must not take him so seriously.

“Social media has created jealous behaviour over illusions. Sadly, some people are envious of things, relationships, businesses and lifestyles that don’t exist,” he noted, while observing that his showmanship was in fact inspiring “young Zimbabweans to work hard, focus and attain a good life.”

“These [who are inspired] far exceed the ones that take too seriously my light hearted and playful bantering on social media,” he added. But just how did Zifa and Zimbabwe stake so much on a fraudster? The Chronicle
