"Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change"

-Jim Rohn
Hello there, 

Happy Valentine's Day!

In this week's e:zine we take you to court for updates on some of the cases we found interesting, we check in on our teachers and meet Accountability Lab's 2022 film fellows. We also take a short left into international lands where job security for cabinet members is not guaranteed and take time to demystify some myths about civil society.

Keep scrolling for some cool stuff and other issues to note. 


Bye for now,

Who: Brent Johan Lunt and Nyasha Mutendawafa.
What: In July 2021 the two were arrested for possession of four rhino horns worth US$240 000, they appeared at the Magistrates’ Court. At the close of the State case, they applied for discharge which was not granted by the court. They then appealed to the High Court.
Outcome: Even though the two were found in possession of the endangered animal’s horns, they were acquitted after the High Court ruled that the State had failed to prove the elements of the offence and let them go scot-free dismissing the Magistrates’ Court finding that the prosecution had established a prima facie case.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Who: Sabina Jiri, Naomi Brahim and Eunice Muchenje.
What: The three women were charged with damaging a police station on December 26 last year in Chinhoyi.
Outcome: Acquitted after Zimbabwe Human Rights NGO Forum’s Noble Chinhanu successfully applied for discharge. The Magistrate stated that, "no court acting carefully can rely on the evidence given by the State to secure their conviction.”


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Who: Prisoners.
What: In June 2017 some prisoners filed an application seeking an order compelling authorities to allow them to vote during elections. The case was heard, and judgment was reserved in 2018 by the late Justice Phiri which necessitated the case going back before the courts again. 
Outcome: Judgment reserved (again!).

Parirenyatwa’s radiation department has been operating at a third of its capacity for over a year. Now its last functioning machine has failed, leaving cancer patients without access to this curative and palliative therapy. Delays have been caused by the need to source both specialist engineers and spares from outside the country.

By-elections for vacant local authority and National Assembly seats are set for 26 March, 2022. Across the 28 constituencies contesting the election, 16 different parties (including MDC, Zanu PF and CCC) have offered up candidates. ZEC’s registration blitz continues until 28 February. 

Last week, MoPSE Minister, Dr Evelyn Ndlovu, announced the immediate three month suspension (without pay) of all teachers who were absent for the reopening of schools. This comes after unions called for continued strike action after a rejection of government’s 20% salary increase for civil servants. Teachers are challenging the suspensions in court.

In a move dubbed “as big as independence,” Zanu PF has promised title deeds to more than 80 000 Epworth residents. Addressing residents at a rally on Saturday, the Prez assured residents that existing structures would be mapped and given title deeds, thus offering housing security to residents.

The value of death and destruction
The International Court of Justice (ICJ) has ordered Uganda to pay the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) USD 325 million in reparations. The court awarded the reparations to the DRC for the harm suffered by individuals and communities as a result of Uganda’s breach of its international obligations during a conflict between the two countries from 1998 to 2003. The compensation comes 15 years after the UN court ruled in a 119-page judgement that fighting by Ugandan troops in DRC breached international law. The sum is much lower than the damages of USD 11 billion requested by DRC for the occupation of its volatile north-eastern Ituri region. In the court’s assessment, USD 225 million would be for “loss of life and other damage to persons” that included rape, conscription of child soldiers and the displacement of up to 500,000 people, USD 40 million for damage to property and USD 60 million for damage to natural resources, including the plundering of gold, diamonds, timber and other goods by Ugandan forces or rebels they supported. Uganda’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs noted in a statement that the amount awarded was far less than what was sought arguing that the ruling was “unfair and wrong, just as the previous 2005 judgement on liability was unfair and wrong.”
 
No job security here
Peru’s president, Pedro Castillo, has sworn in his fourth cabinet in the six months he has been in office. His latest prime minister lasted three days on the job. Continued internal struggles within the government has led to the latest reshuffles. Castillo, a school teacher who campaigned on restructuring the Latin American country’s economy to better serve the poor, has also faced attacks from far-right opposition groups (who have sought unsuccessfully to impeach him) and from Peru’s ruling Marxist Free Peru party, under which he was elected but has since distanced himself from. Peru had three presidents in five days in November 2020. Castillo swore in as prime minister Anibal Torres, who now has 30 days to get a vote of confidence from Congress for the new cabinet, or he will be forced to make a fifth round of appointments. Torres has notably been in favour of sending former President Alberto Fujimori, in power from 1990 to 2000, to a common prison instead of his current special prison to serve out his 25-year sentence for his role in killings by death squads. Fujimori is also the father of Castillo’s rival, Keiko Fujimori.
 
Conspiracy to defend your rights
Former presidential hopeful and journalist Miguel Mora has been sentenced to 15 years by a judge in Nicaragua for “conspiracy to undermine national integrity.” Mora is one of many opposition political figures to be convicted and sentenced after trials lasting a few hours. The trials of the 46 opposition figures, including seven presidential hopefuls such as Mora, started on February 1. The arrest of Mora and six other presidential hopefuls means Ortega will run almost unopposed. The United States and European Union have denounced the contest as a sham and have put sanctions on members of President Daniel Ortega’s government for crushing internal dissent and for undemocratic practices. Lawyer Vilma Nunez, who leads the Nicaraguan Human Rights Center, had predicted the hearings would be only for show, with the outcomes already concluded. “Nobody should be confused. These are not trials,” Nunez said. “These are repressive farces that the regime uses to issue convictions and continue to intimidate the people.” The ruling Sandinista Front and its allies control Nicaragua’s congress and all government institutions.

Democracy Index 2021

The recently published 2021 Democracy Index gives an overview of how democracy fared globally in 2021. According to the report, in the past year the continuing negative impact Covid-19 had on democracy and freedom was felt worldwide for a second consecutive year. The index highlights how the pandemic has resulted in an unparalleled withdrawal of rights in both developed democracies and authoritarian regimes, through the imposition of lockdowns and restrictions on traveling and, increasingly, the introduction of “green passes” requiring proof of vaccination against Covid-19 for participation in public life. The Economist Intelligence Unit notes how “Covid-19 has led to the normalisation of emergency powers, which have tended to stay on the statute books, and accustomed citizens to the extension of state power over public and personal life.” According to the index, not only has the pandemic aggravated many pre-pandemic trends such as the tendency to resort to coercion by authoritarian regimes but it has also had an adverse impact on the quality of democracy internationally. The foregoing is demonstrated by the fact that only 12.6% of countries in the world resident to 6.4% of the global population can be classified as full democracies while 35.3% of countries home to 37.1% of the world’s populace are authoritarian regimes. The index also demonstrates that, generally less than half (45.7%) of the world’s population is currently living in a democracy of sorts, a significant decline from 49.4% in 2020. The index illustrates that the global democratic regression has been spurred on by authoritarian responses to the pandemic like the introduction of intrusive and coercive measures by governments under the guise of containing Covid-19.

How to Want Less
The secret to satisfaction has nothing to do with achievement, money, or stuff.

I glanced into my teenage daughter’s bedroom one spring afternoon last year, expecting to find her staring absentmindedly at the Zoom screen that passed for high school during the pandemic. Instead, she was laughing uproariously at a video she had found. I asked her what she was looking at. “It’s an old man dancing like a chicken and singing,” she told me.

I came over to her laptop, not being above watching someone making an idiot of himself for 15 seconds of social-media fame. What I found instead was the septuagenarian rock star Mick Jagger, in a fairly recent concert, croaking out the Rolling Stones’ megahit “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”—a song that debuted on the charts when I was a year old—for probably the millionth time. An audience of tens of thousands of what looked to be mostly Baby Boomers and Gen Xers sang along rapturously.

“Is this serious?” she asked. “Do people your age actually like this?” I took umbrage, but had to admit it was a legitimate question. “Kind of,” I answered. It wasn’t just the music, or even the performance, I assured her. To my mind, the longevity of that particular song—No. 2 on Rolling Stone magazine’s original list of the “500 Greatest Songs of All Time”—has a lot to do with a deep truth it speaks.

As we wind our way through life, I explained, satisfaction—the joy from fulfillment of our wishes or expectations—is evanescent. No matter what we achieve, see, acquire, or do, it seems to slip from our grasp.

I was on a roll now. Satisfaction, I told my daughter, is the greatest paradox of human life. We crave it, we believe we can get it, we glimpse it and maybe even experience it for a brief moment, and then it vanishes. But we never give up on our quest to get and hold on to it. “I try, and I try, and I try, and I try,” Jagger sings. How? Through sex and consumerism, according to the song. By building a life that is ever more baroque, expensive, and laden with crap.

“You’ll see,” I told her.

My daughter’s mirth now utterly extinguished, she had the expression I imagine Jean-Paul Sartre’s daughter must have had every day. “So life is just a rat race, and we’re doomed to an existence of dissatisfaction?” she asked. “That sucks.”

“It does suck,” I said. “But we’re not doomed.” I told her we can beat this affliction if we work to truly understand it—and if we’re willing to make some difficult changes to the way we live.

“Like what?” she asked, her eyes narrowing with the healthy suspicion that comes from being the child of a social scientist, and thus an unwitting participant in many behavioral experiments.

I paused. It was in fact a question to which I’d devoted a lot of my time over the previous few years—not just professionally but personally, and with sometimes uneven results.

Even the most successful people suffer from the dissatisfaction problem. I remember once seeing LeBron James—the world’s greatest basketball player—with a look of abject despair on his face after his Cleveland Cavaliers lost the NBA championship to the Golden State Warriors. All of the world’s wealth and accolades were like straw in that moment of loss.

As an observer, I understand the problem. I write a column about human happiness for The Atlantic and teach classes on the subject at Harvard. I know that satisfaction is one of the core “macronutrients” of happiness (the other two being enjoyment and meaning), and that its slippery nature is one of the reasons happiness is often so elusive as well.

Yet time and again, I have fallen into the trap of believing that success and its accompaniments would fulfill me. On my 40th birthday I made a bucket list of things I hoped to do or achieve. They were mainly accomplishments only a wonk could want: writing books and columns about serious subjects, teaching at a top school, traveling to give lectures and speeches, maybe even leading a university or think tank. Whether these were good and noble goals or not, they were my goals, and I imagined that if I hit them, I would be satisfied.

Scholars argue over whether our happiness has an immutable set point, or if it might move around a little over the course of our life due to general circumstances. But no one has ever found that immediate bliss from a major victory or achievement will endure. As for money, more of it helps up to a point—it can buy things and services that relieve the problems of poverty, which are sources of unhappiness. But forever chasing money as a source of enduring satisfaction simply does not work. “The nature of [adaptation] condemns men to live on a hedonic treadmill,” the psychologists Philip Brickman and Donald T. Campbell wrote in 1971, “to seek new levels of stimulation merely to maintain old levels of subjective pleasure, to never achieve any kind of permanent happiness or satisfaction.”

The insatiable goals to acquire more, succeed conspicuously, and be as attractive as possible lead us to objectify one another, and even ourselves. When people see themselves as little more than their attractive bodies, jobs, or bank accounts, it brings great suffering. Studies show that self-objectification is associated with a sense of invisibility and lack of autonomy, and physical self-objectification has a direct relationship with eating disorders and depression in women. Professional self-objectification is a tyranny every bit as nasty. You become a heartless taskmaster to yourself, seeing yourself as nothing more than Homo economicus. Love and fun are sacrificed for another day of work, in search of a positive internal answer to the question Am I successful yet? We become cardboard cutouts of real people.

The secret to satisfaction is not to increase our haves—that will never work (or at least, it will never last). That is the treadmill formula, not the satisfaction formula. The secret is to manage our wants. By managing what we want instead of what we have, we give ourselves a chance to lead more satisfied lives.

Each of us can ride the waves of attachments and urges, hoping futilely that someday, somehow, we will get and keep that satisfaction we crave. Or we can take a shot at free will and self-mastery. It’s a lifelong battle against our inner caveman. Often, he wins. But with determination and practice, we can find respite from that chronic dissatisfaction and experience the joy that is true human freedom.

About
A Zimbabwean CSO based in Harare is looking for a qualified candidate to fill the position of Project Officer – Gender and Extractive Industries that has fallen vacant within the organization. This is a full time position requiring a candidate with deep understanding of women’s rights and the extractive industry landscape of Zimbabwe. The position requires someone who believes in taking action to promote women’s political, social and economic equality; advocating for justice through grassroot organizing. Further, the ideal candidate must have contemporary knowledge of the effects of extractive industries on the economy, environment and communities. The successful candidate will support the Programs Manager and Executive Director in fundraising for the Gender and Extractives pillar of the organization.  

For two decades now, Zimbabwe has witnessed an increase in the number of investors in the extractives sector, coming in to explore and extract its vast mineral resource endowment. The extractive industries have created a lot of socio-economic challenges for host communities where the extractive companies grab land, pollute rivers, disrupt community life and more importantly, commit economic injustice by failing to reinvest profits in communities negatively impacted by their activities.  

Whilst host communities generally suffer from the externalized costs of resource extraction, there are specific effects which have had severe effects on women and, by extension, children. There has also been a loud voice from women and civil society challenging the resource curse, demanding corporations and the state to account for resource exploitation and ameliorate the conditions of women affected by extractive industries. Our organization is one of the key players fighting to end resource looting and defending the rights of women affected by extractive industries through research and publications, civic education, lobbying and stakeholder engagement. We do not just expose the problem, but rather we capacitate the affected communities and women to become agents of the change they seek.
