"Me and you, we got more yesterday than anybody. We need some kind of tomorrow."

- Toni Morrison
Hello there, 

How's your winter so far? If you missed it, things are looking a little different at Kubatana this month. While we plan to figure out our "what next", we've been soaking up all the love and constructive feedback you've been sharing with us on the app and in the inbox. Thank you for taking the time to speak out and share your experience of being in our orbit, we appreciate you! 

This week, we're sharing some of the words we've received from our community, as well as some powerful pieces we've dug up from our archive. As we muse on the past, we realize that while many things have changed, some things are the same. And at the core of what we're celebrating is the determination and courage of Zimbabweans who are fighting to keep the space open to be heard, to be free, to be alive. 

Oh, and we got your back: all your jobs and opportunities are below.

Poems in an envelope
Batsirai Easther Chigama
June 24, 2009

I found them
Faded, forgotten
With coachroach urine stains
Stamped on warm words
That began and flowed without end,
Lying hopelessly in your old school trunk.

Written for Eustina
The girl whose beauty captivated
Bees in flight, reduced their sting
to a sweet stillness in midair
suspended, hoping they too
would hold her hand like you did.

Words flowed from the past
Into the life I live with you
Scars of old, paint pictures
On stained paper without reverence
Of the carats I thought bound
You and me,
Faded yet so alive
The dying poems in an envelope
Addressed to Eustina
Not me.

Questions and answers . . . 

Q: How has Kubatana helped you in your life?

A: It has kept me up to date on key areas of concern in the NGO and wider sector including public life beyond our borders. The writing style is punchy and succinct.

Q: Is there anything you’ve changed as a result of Kubatana?

A: I think more about social, political and economic issues which may not necessarily directly impact me, but affect the greater society: issues related to gender, climate and the environment, PVO legislation, freedom and choice within our society e.g. child marriages, legislative revisions affecting our political landscape.

Q: What will you miss most about us?

A: Comments on our history, feature articles, and promotions of current literature. The jobs and consultancy adverts also made me aware of who the employers / players both established and emerging in Zimbabwe.

Q: Has Kubatana ever helped you get inspired, get active, get outraged or get a job?

A: Yes - through the social commentaries, extracts and highlights including from current literature and the media. I have participated in surveys, directed others to advertise on Kubatana, applied for consultancy work and been outraged by the deteriorating operating space in Zimbabwe. Kubatana has helped me look at life from the outside in and vice versa.

Radio Dialogue: taking radio to the people!
Taurai Maduna, April 13, 2006

Some weeks ago, people of Old Pumula, a township in Bulawayo Zimbabwe's second largest city, had a rare opportunity to express themselves on radio. One by one they went up to the microphone and candidly talked about their concerns regarding the shortage of mealie-meal in the city. Radio Dialogue has embarked on an outreach programme that enables communities to share their views. The recordings are then mixed with music and distributed free of charge on cassette tapes and CD's within communities through a programme called "Topical Tunes".

Kholiwe Nyoni, Marketing Manager for Radio Dialogue said the community recordings are a part of the Radio Dialogue advocacy campaign. Ms Nyoni said the township meetings are being conducted in all of Bulawayo's 29 wards. Kholiwe Nyoni speaks about Radio Dialogue's community meetings here

"Topical Tunes" was first known as "Taxi Tunes" which were a series of cassettes aimed at educating the people of Bulawayo. They were distributed to taxi drivers who played the cassettes during their journeys. Ndebele adds that "Topical Tunes" has been effective. He said, "We know that it is an effective programme because people give us feedback, they listen to the tapes and suggest topics that we should discuss. The demand is so high that we need to increase our production levels." Zenzele Ndebele speaks on the 'Topical Tunes' project, commenting on its success.
Informed and active . . . 

I’m a development studies student, and I would tell my friends that I’m not worried about getting a job cause of the endless vacancies posted by Kubatana lol. On a serious note, I have learnt more about my rights. That time you posted about the Constitution and the PVO Amendment Bill which is a huge thing, and thank you so much for making us aware of issues that are usually swept under the carpet. You have always been transparent, accurate, and it’s always been a joy to read your amazing newsletters or your Tweets. This isn’t the last time I have been inspired by Kubatana, and if you are able to transform the life of this 22 year old, I know you have transformed the lives of others out there.

Thank you for representing the truth.

I am more confident in my essays now because of you. I am confident when just having a simple debate over current issues cause of the “data” I get from you every time. I’m a current affairs person now cause of you. And I’m no longer anxious about watching the news cause I realised I need to get informed, be outraged and speak out!

- Danko, via WhatsApp 
Words from an eye . . . 

Dear Kubatana,

I’m sorry that this house is closing for a while, where people talk as if over tea about how to hold one another.

You made being engaged accessible. When each life logistic stretched into exhaustion, clouding the whole, this was a place we could look back at to know where we were, and why.

I’ll miss how you valued listening in itself: as the process by which we are heard and healed and made family.

I’ll miss your friendly ‘hello there’, and knowing what’s got you dancing this week.

I’ll miss the gathering point.

You’ve taught us as much about silence as voice, and your quiet presence will be felt as spacious. Fam, we’re with you until you return, and if you don’t, may we listen to your wandering and tell you where we are. 

- With love, An eye
Scholarly take . . . 

I read today's news of the looming closure of Kubatana with immense sadness and a sense of loss. For as long as I have worked on and in Zimbabwe - about a decade now - Kubatana's weekly emails have been an incredible resource for news, analysis, insight and inspiration.

Besides the newsletter, the Kubatana website has been an unparalleled resource for the duration of its existence. The website hosts civil society reports, newspaper articles and insightful commentary for a variety of sources - and particularly for those organisations whose bare bones funding means that they don't have capacity to put together a website, or to carry the annual burden of hosting fees. Kubatana's website is of incredible importance and value, and its loss will be a loss for freedom of information in Zimbabwe.

Finally, when I was writing my PhD, the Kubatana archive was an absolute gold mine of information. In a context where most newspaper articles are published online and subsequently taken down, Kubatana's news archive is an incredible day-by-day resource of Zimbabwe's political history and is of fundamental value to researchers both inside and outside of Zimbabwe.

For a tiny organisation, Kubatana has always punched far above its weight, and Kubatana's staff are incredibly dedicated to the free flow of information in society. Following so close on the heels of the loss of Dr Alex Magaisa - whose Big Saturday Read was an important and influential piece of weekly political and legal insight - it is impossible to conceive of the loss of yet another fundamental resource in Kubatana. 

As scholars of Zimbabwe, we will be poorer for the loss of Kubatana, but I hate to think how this might affect the free flow of information in Zimbabwe's polarised and secretive political environment.

NGOs vow to continue despite Bill
Itai Dzamara, The Zimbabwe Independent
January 07, 2005

NON-GOVERNMENTAL Organisations (NGOs) involved in issues of democracy, human rights and media advocacy have said they will continue operating until government uses the NGO Bill to ban them.

The NGO Bill awaits President Robert Mugabe’s assent after opposition resistance in parliament failed to stop the ruling party from pushing it through last year.

The Zimbabwe Independent this week established that donors from Europe and the United States have frozen further assistance to local NGOs due to the uncertainty brought about by the Bill.

The NGOs now hope to be accredited by government in line with the provisions of the NGO Bill before they can get funding from the international community.

However, local NGOs involved in democracy, human rights and media advocacy fear they may be denied accreditation. National Constitutional Assembly (NCA) chairman Lovemore Madhuku’s personal assistant Ernest Mudzengi said they were already suffering from the withdrawal of funding by international donors but would continue operating.

"The issue of donor funds is one problem that has been created by this Bill," said Mudzengi.

"It will be difficult to operate without funding but we are not going to stop fighting for a new constitution. We will use all means possible to survive for the sake of democracy," he said.

Zimbabwe Election Support Network (Zesn) chairman, Reginald Matchaba-Hove, said they were weighing their options in the event that the Bill was signed by Mugabe.

"We are operating as if all is normal because it hasn’t been signed into law," Matchaba-Hove said. "But we are totally opposed to the Bill. It is retrogressive for the people of Zimbabwe. We are considering measures to take in the event that it becomes law."

Media Institute of Southern Africa chairman for the Zimbabwe chapter Thomas Deve also said they would remain in operation.

"We are still operating and waiting for the next step by government. We are still surviving on the funds we already have," he said.

Zimbabwe Human Rights (ZimRights) director Munyaradzi Bidi said they were still operating.

"We have to continue fighting for the upholding of human rights. It is clear the Bill is draconian and we have made our statements clear regarding its effects on the nation," he said.

Implementing partners working with the United Nations World Food Programme retrenched more than half of their workforce in Zimbabwe late last year. The NGO sector employed more than 10 000 people before the clampdown.

Impact of Double Tax Treaties and Loan Agreements on Domestic Resource Mobilisation in Zimbabwe and Mozambique - A focus on the Mining Sector: Zimbabwe Environmental Law Association (ZELA)
Deadline: 24 June 2022

Time Frame for assignment: 20 days
Reports to: Programmes Manager

Introduction and background
The Zimbabwe Environmental Law Association (ZELA) is a public interest environmental law organization, working on the promotion of environmental justice in Southern Africa through sustainable and equitable utilization of natural resources and environmental protection. In conducting its work in the extractives sector, ZELA is contributing to the empowerment of women in mining. In conducting its work in the extractives industries, ZELA believes in people-driven, and people centred approaches to mining taxation to achieve optimal utilization of mineral resources for sustainable socio-economic development and progressive realisation of socio-economic rights.

It is a fact that the development and operationalisation of mining projects requires intensive capital which in countries such as Zimbabwe and Mozambique, comes in the form of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). It follows that different scales of mining are undertaken by investors who are not residents of the host country, giving rise to questions on which country has the right to taxation of income emanating from operations and at what percentage. It is this state of affairs that has given rise to Double Tax Agreements (DTAs). DTA were introduced as an international tax instrument which sought to avoid double taxation of the same income or capital to the same taxpayer in the same period in two jurisdictions and promoting international tax compliance and information sharing. Unless tax treaties are designed or renegotiated in a careful manner that not only favours the taxpayers (in this case the investors), governments may end up collecting substantially less revenue from mining compared to what they would under domestic law. In addition, in recent years, it has emerged that DTAs are being used by some mining companies as a conduit for tax avoidance across tax jurisdictions through tax planning schemes, treaty shopping and round tripping resulting in "double non-taxation."

It is against this background that ZELA intends to engage a consultant to conduct an analysis of the DTAs that Zimbabwe and Mozambique are a party to and their implications on domestic resource mobilisation with a focus on the mining sector.

Main objective of the consultancy
In consultation with the organisation’s programmes team, the consultant is expected to produce a report that enables the organisation to achieve the following objectives: Provide detailed evidence-based on the overview of DTAs that Zimbabwe and Mozambique are a party to in the context of tax justice, tax equity, tax and human rights and optimal tax regimes, with a focus on the mining sector; Bring out key implications of Zimbabwe and Mozambique’s DTAs to the mining sector related domestic resource mobilisation and the progressive realisation of socio-economic rights; Proffer practical recommendations on how Zimbabwe and Mozambique can renegotiate or craft future DTAs affecting the mining sector.

Expected output
A well-researched, detailed, well-written and comprehensive report on DTAs that Zimbabwe and Mozambique are a party to with implications on domestic resource mobilisation with a focus on the mining sector as well as practical recommendations.

Key deliverables and timeline
Conduct an in-depth literature review on the subject matter including key developments at the national, regional, and international level; Develop a research report with clear assessment of Zimbabwe and Mozambique’s DTAs and implications on domestic resource mobilisation for the progressive realisation of socio-economic rights, clearly capturing the challenges, opportunities, and recommendations with a focus on the mining sector; In the assessment and assessment, the consultant must at all times employ a gender lense in carrying out the study; Develop a power point presentation of the research report.

The assignment is scheduled to run for 20 days from the date of awarding of the contract.

Qualifications and experience
Advanced university degree (MA or PhD) in Law, Development Studies, Political Economy preferably with experience in local content policies, private and public procurement, women’s rights and natural resource governance. Demonstrated knowledge and experience in conducting research covering different countries.

CEAA is a five-year development activity implemented by a consortium of Zimbabwean organisations, which includes the CEAA Secretariat, Legal Resources Foundation (LRF), Restless Development, and other local partners. CEAA will contribute to public affairs strengthening and civic engagement in Zimbabwe by promoting robust and informed effective citizen participation in governance processes at multiple levels with an eye to improved, citizen-driven development.

Purpose and scope of the study

The purpose of the study is to assess sectoral knowledge, perceptions, and practices towards gender in tertiary institutions. Identify gaps and opportunities for gender inclusion in the tertiary institutions’ governance structures and recommend suitable organisational structures and systems to make tertiary institutions more gender responsive.
