SW Radio Africa News Headlines Wednesday 13th February 2013
Senator Obert Gutu, the deputy Minister of Justice, says the sudden resignation of the Electoral Commission chairperson, Justice Simpson Mutambanengwe, could be linked to power struggles in the former ruling ZANU PF party.
In the first of a new series, UK based Zimbabwean analyst Wilbert Mukori gives his views on issues relating to Zimbabwe. This week Wilbert tells us why he believes Zimbabwe should vote NO at the constitutional referendum on March 16th.
Muzembi says ZANU PF had no option but to agree on the changes to the new constitution and people should not be worried. Mugabe is fed up and he genuinely wants to retire; while Mdhuku wants people to vote No to the constitution as that means we will keep getting money from international donors. That will end once the country has a new constitution; while Rusike says soldiers are mounting roadblocks in Wedza, searching people and beating up those who are in possession of independent newspapers, accusing them of promoting an MDC agenda. They are told people should only bring state controlled papers like the Herald from towns.
