Who is going to expose this HH&his sidekicks like Joseph Kalimbwe that challenging SADC to act on Zimbabwe’s deepening crisis is hypocrisy of the highest order when he is fixed with the invasion of Zambia’s jurisdiction space by Mnangagwa’s brigade led by Manikai?



Is HH a hypocrite on Zimbabwe? Yes. The evidence so far confirms that his policy on Zimbabwe is authored by opponents of Mnangagwa in Zimbabwe who believe that HH as a head of state of a foreign state should openly use Zimbabwe’s problems as leverage to access favorable terms from the creditors of Zambia.

HH is a man who believes in between his ears lies the universe of what is to be known and his retail approach to governance is divisive and only the few who have access to him have the license to craft his foreign policy.

A story is told of how the loud mouth Joseph Kalimbwe refused and failed to take notice that Mnangagwa’s ascendancy brigade led by Mr. Edwin Manikai and assisted by Mr. Michael Mundashi of MMLP got a Zimbabwean decree to be recognized and enforced by Kajimanga J (as he was then) resulting in the theft of $5 million of which MMLP pocketed $124,000 in January 2006 which Mundashi has refused to acknowledge constituted proceeds of crime and as such has refused to make good on the prejudice to a Zambian company, TAP Building Products Limited.

It is chilling that HH would have the audacity of saying that: “SADC should not fold hands as the social unrest in Zimbabwe when in truth and fact his impotence is the biggest lubricant for Mnangagwa’s lack of unaccountability because no SADC state even when evidence exists is willing to take Mnangagwa on.

It is not a secret that Mnangagwa remains unaccountable to any SADC leaders who he believes lack the gravitas to hold him to account.

HH is alive to the ordeal that persons like Sithole and Sikhala are subjected to with impunity when he could simply ask to visit as a tourist to Chikurubi prison to see in real life what Zimbabwean prisons look like after +42 years of independence.

This will help put character to his stance on Zimbabwe and why public confidence on SADC’s potency to solve the Zimbabwean crisis is non-existent.

Who needs Biden to alter US foreign policy based on real time evidence of abuse.

“Mnangagwa Cannot Fix Economy”

26 September 2022

The President of the Republic of Zambia, Hakainde Hichilema has challenged SADC to act on the deepening crisis in Zimbabwe.

According to the Zambian leader, SADC should not “fold hands” as the social unrest in Zimbabwe continues.

Writing on Twitter, United Party for National Development spokesperson, Joseph Kalimbwe, described President Hichilema as a genuine friend of those being persecuted by corrupt regimes.

“People have been asking us ‘what’s your President’s view on SADC’. Here it is; SADC must be pro-active. We can’t have leaders killing their people to remain in power. People of the SADC region, people of African continent, in our leader, in Hakainde you have a genuine friend .”

Kalimbwe added: “It’s only in Africa – particularly here in SADC – where a party that’s failed to do anything meaningful in 30 or 42 years still wants to be given another 5 years – again to do nothing. Absolutely nothing – zero.

Sanctions were instituted because of human rights violations by individuals. End the human rights violations first because however you sing the “End Sanctions” rhetoric, the West won’t remove no sanctions if the rights of the people continue being violated. It’s that simple.”

Here are the facts:

THE COCA COLA COMPANY (TCCC) acquired THE ENTIRE ISSUED SHARE CAPITAL OF CADBURY SCHWEPPES PLC resulting in the control and management of the global Schweppes businesses into TCCC value chains including Schweppes Zimbabwe Limited (SZL), a company incorporated in terms of the laws of Zimbabwe.

Mr. Brian Musekiwa, a Zimbabwean-born professional based in Texas, USA, said: “I had no idea of the SZL matter and its intersection with the SMM Holdings Private Limited (SMM) affair until I joined the Justice Under Rule of Law’s (JUROL) corporate heritage and legal literacy campaign powered by the Banking on Africa’s Future (BOAF) of which I am a paid up member. I have followed the SZL saga with keen interest not because of the Zimbabwe angle but because TCCC is a global corporate icon and just the idea that this company was party to an extortion and corrupt deal involving the payment of $2.7 million to Chinamasa, Mnangagwa’s key 2017 coup ally, is chilling leading any person like me to want to know if there exists any causal link between the complicity of TCCC’s alleged corrupt practices and conduct in relation to the affairs of the SZL localization and upgrade program concluded with Africa Resources Limited (ARL), a private company incorporated in terms of the laws of the BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS (BVI) and wholly owned by Mr. Mutumwa Mawere, a Zimbabwean born South African naturalized citizen, who Mnangagwa and Chinamasa using Messrs. Edwin Manikai and Afaras Gwaradzimba as surrogates, and the extrajudicial and the unconscionable theft of the control and management of SZL and other juristic entities using an unprecedented draconian and barbaric law called the Reconstruction of State-Indebted Insolvent Companies Act that was authored by Mnangagwa to bridge him to state power.”

Mr. Cornwell Mutetwa, a Zimbabwean businesan said: “I naively thought that the reconstruction project was solely premised on the affairs of SMM as a company and not on the person of Mawere and his alleged interests in companies like SZL.

I am pleased that Mr. Mucha Mugore, a member of BOAF-JUROL, inspired by findings in his MBA dissertation research on how public power was abused in expropriating Mawere’s relationships with not only SMM but many separate and distinct juristic entities, provoked in a whatsapp group that the record of this sad chapter in the corporate history of Zimbabwe must be corrected preferably in form of a memoir written by Mawere.

I was encouraged and remain so that I have flins myself being part of this noble project that has enabled me to interface with Mr. Mawere who has generously downloaded critical information that hitherto has not been in the public domain. I had no idea that Coca Cola Holdings Netherlands (CCHN) was directly and indirectly involved in the affairs of SZL until I read this:

Having understood that it was the Zimbabwe Competition and Tariffs Commission (TCTC) was weaponized to have jurisdiction beyond its mandate to regulate competition issues to become relevant in prescribing localization matters, I began to understand that under the late Mugabe’s watch the governance system was already broken.

My memory was then provoked to appreciate why the former Minister of Indigenization, Hon Kasukuwere, had a hand in the SZL matter and used his public office to cause ZCTC to require as a condition for approving that the control and management of SZL be divested and deprived from TCCC using public power.

It is against this background that the extortion inherent in the extract below from a meeting between SZL’s then SA-based legal counsel, an employee of Coca Cola South Africa Pty Limited, a private company incorporated in terms of the laws of SA, can properly be understood:

It was made clear to CCSA that unless a payment of $2.7 million was paid to the order of Fidelity Life Asset Management (FLAM) and SMM under Chinamasa’s control through his appointee, Gwaradzimba, the ARL purchased equipment imported from Europe and delivered to SZL as part of the upgrade project, would not be released to an SZL controlled by CCSA until a ransom amount of $2.7 million was paid to the order of Chinamasa.

On the advise of Gwaradzimba whose relationship with SMM was a consequence of a decree and an order issued by Chinamasa with no judicial involvement, CCSA according to Mr. Mokwena, in his capacity as the legal counsel of both SZL and CCSA, was advised by Gwaradzimba and accepted his advise to part with a bribery of $2.7 in million to cause Chinamasa to exercise public power to issue a notice removing SZL from the purported and unlawful and invalid control by Gwaradzimba using the order issued by Chinamasa in relation to SMM affairs only.

It is chilling that Chinamasa used public power to issue a notice dates 26 January 2006 and through his appointee was rewarded with a secret gift of $2.7 million to the prejudice of ARL and its sole shareholder, Mr. Mawere.”

Mr. Peter Makoni, an attorney and a member of BOAF-JUROL, said: “I have had the opportunity to read and understand the sequence of events leading to the confiscation of equipment acquired by ARL using the personal agency of Mr. Mawere as set out below:

It is clear from the fax above that neither FLAM nor SMM under reconstruction were involved in the SZL matter as promoters and sponsors to permit any lawful payment of a bribe of $2.7 million to Chinamasa using cronies like Gwaradzimba and Manikai.

Having concluded that Chinamasa was unjustly enriched to the tune of $2.7 million based on fraudulent representation that the $2.7 million that ARL, a company whose affairs fell outside the jurisdiction of Zimbabwe and, therefore Chinamasa and his surrogates, in exchange for a government gazette to divest and deprive ARL of the control and management of the upgrade equipment that was conveyed by Petter Trading Pty Limited as ARL’s agent, received pocket money to be used for ulterior motives in the amount of $2.7 million from CCSA.

It would please anyone interested in building a future of not only Zimbabwe but Africa that is characterized by the respect of the rule of law to take notice of the documents in the flipbook below:”
