"Madness does not govern a country; discussion does."

- African Proverb

Hello there, 

Our e:zine this week checks in on the fast approaching by-elections and we give you the ins on Zimbabwe facing its peers at the UN Human Rights Council's Universal Periodic Review. We also meet the oldest living resident of planet earth (according to them) and facepalm at Africa's 'coup' record.

Take a minute to shake hands with Forum for African Women Educationalists Zimbabwe Chapter (FAWEZI) and keep scrolling for the other crowd pleasers at the back of the room.

Bye for now,

On the local front . . .

By-election voter apathy
By-elections are around the corner and ZEC has launched its mobile voter registration ‘blitz.’ Although 2,700 centres have been set up to register voters, response to the blitz has so far been distinctly underwhelming. Takunda Tsunga of the Election Resource Centre cited lack of public information and general voter apathy as reasons for the poor turnout. Elsewhere it was also reported that some potential voters had been turned away because of incorrect or missing documents (ID’s and proof of residence) needed to register. Access the full list of registration centres here.

Rates up for Harare
We’re pretty sure we’re not the only ones frustrated with Harare City Council’s service delivery (or lack thereof), and we definitely won’t be the only ones shocked by Council’s new hefty hike in rates charges. This year’s charges, coming into effect now that the 2022 budget has been approved, have increased by 37.5% for high density residents and 67% for low density residents. Mr Precious Shumba of the Harare Residents Trust has pointed out that while Council “says the right things, implementation is non-existent.”

Back to school?
This week marks the official return to in-person learning for students across the country, following the government’s decision to delay the start of the school year over Covid concerns. 320 schools and colleges, deemed to have been operating illegally, have, however, been shut down by authorities (including MoPSE, ZIMRA and local authorities) and will not reopen to the estimated 22,000 children affected this week. Many of these allegedly illegal institutions are symptomatic of a broader educational crisis which resulted in parents turning to the private sector as an alternative to the failing state system. Meanwhile, teachers continue to call for government to address their salary and teaching conditions concerns, with many staying away from work on the first day of term yesterday. 

Locating Zim on the human rights scale
Zimbabwe’s human rights record was recently reviewed by the UN Human Rights Council’s Universal Periodic Review (UPR) Working Group. The reports reviewed include a national (state authored) report; information contained in the reports of independent human rights experts and groups; and information provided by other stakeholders including CSOs and human rights defenders. Minister of Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs, Ziyambi Ziyambi, led Zimbabwe’s delegation at the meeting and claimed that the GoZ was making significant progress in terms of human rights. CSOs roundly disagree with this position, with Musa Kika of the HRForum, highlighting some of the misleading comments made by Minister Ziyambi, particularly with regard to the Private Voluntary Organisation Amendment Bill.

E-taxes coming through
Just when we thought GoZ couldn’t possibly find something else to tax, ICT Minister Jenfan Muswere, published a general notice that e-commerce activities are now subject to 4.5% VAT. Government has engaged the British Virgin Islands based firm, Daedalus World Limited, to “assist” them in collecting this revenue from businesses engaging in “digital advertising, content, cloud computing, e-commerce [and] gambling.” Transactions involving cryptocurrencies will also be affected by the new tax. Zimbabwe joins a number of other African countries quick to milk this growing industry, with Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa all recently having introduced similar taxes. While tapping into this cyber based cash cow may seem an obvious route to take for cash strapped governments, analysts warn that such taxation will be counter productive to the growth and stimulation of fintech and e-commerce in these countries.

In our 25 January 2022 issue, we shared the Accountability Lab’s article on demolitions in Zimbabwe. We asked what you think our authorities should do to maintain order in our cities and avoid destroying people’s livelihoods. Here are some of the responses we received:

First and foremost, no illegal structure must be erected or be constructed, however, once constructed or erected, proper authority to destroy or demolish must be in place in line with by-laws and other rights issues. Educating and informing people/communities about the dangers of erecting illegal structures must be ongoing. In some cases, those who deliberately break the law to destroy or erect illegal structures without proper authority must face the music.” – Henry Muusha

“City of Harare has been promising to erect good workspaces for the Informal Sector. Construction of conducive workspaces is long overdue. They can engage with private players or banks to do this and make it clear that they want to see order. Demolitions without construction of any sort of infrastructure will lead to more insanity. People don't have jobs but unfortunately have responsibilities that demand them to provide. Schools are closed, kids are home, and the consumption of food has increased and the depreciating RTGs doesn't make it any easier. It would be better for local authorities to give back to communities and show dedication to development instead of continuously blaming each other whilst the citizens are neglected and constantly harassed.” - Agnes Magunje

“My heart is bleeding as I write my own opinion. Cry my beloved country! I don't believe that the Government, the Ministry of Local Government and the local authorities are doing the right thing by demolishing informal sector markets. If we don’t have the economic fundamentals in place to enable people to acquire jobs, let the people sell. This problem was happening right before our eyes, and we were pretending it was not happening. Shutting down informal businesses doesn't work. How will these people survive? Is it the people's fault that there are no jobs? Can we not see that by making these people not engage in business ventures, we are creating a time bomb for future generations? Why do we want to create business opportunities for a few by shutting out the rest? I believe that we don't have to shut out the poor from the city. For example, the local authority could build structures, and enable the people to sell formally. I think we are not seeing the potential that the informal sector can play if we formalize them and even collect taxes and revenues. We can even have community led initiatives to ensure cleanliness around the informal markets to deal with the amount of refuse coming from these markets. Let's be serious, this is not kindergarten economics or child’s play.” - Tariro Rugoyi

Kosking up
If you (like the rest of us of course) have been having trouble with your face mask when eating in restaurants, you might want to consider getting a kosk! An anti-virus mask that covers the nose only making it wearable during eating and drinking has fuelled debate in South Korea and across social media. The kosk, whose name is a combination of the Korean word for nose and mask, is made up of two pieces, a removable mouth piece that leaves the nose covered. Some social media users have labelled the masks, oops kosks, as ridiculous with suggestions that this was a precursor to the selling of “teapots made of chocolate”. An epidemiology professor has described kosks as “a strange idea but better than nothing.” We say, kosk or not, don't forget to mask up, sanitise and stay safe!

Blow of state
The recent coup in Burkina Faso and failed attempt in Guinea-Bissau has brought the total of coups and coup attempts in Africa over the past 18 months to 7. Countries in which the military has successfully seized power during this period include Chad, Guinea, Mali, and Sudan while Niger experienced an unsuccessful attempt. Many are asking why now and what is fuelling these putsches? Although there is no standard explanation on the driving force behind the increase of coups in Africa, observers have attributed the surge to an increasingly frustrated population especially youths, poor governance and rising insecurity among citizens. While some may view coups as a way citizens express how “fed up” they are with their governments on various issues, it can’t be ignored that, “coups are responsible for roughly 75% of democratic failures, making them the single largest danger to democracy.” In light of this, the need for building and strengthening of democratic systems, civil society, and institutions for justice and transparency in Africa to prevent a total blow state cannot be overemphasised.

‘Nobody can say anything’
In a bid to present a “perfect” image of the Winter Olympics, China has been accused of silencing its civil society activists and journalists. It is reported that increased censorship of social media platforms has seen some activists and journalists lose access to social media platforms like We Chat and receive warnings from the police. “Right now, as far as sensitive terms inside China go, ‘Winter Olympics’ is second only to ‘Xi Jinping’, no criticism by citizens is being permitted,” said human rights activist Hu Jia. Wang Yaqiu, a senior China researcher at Human Rights Watch, stated that the Chinese government was worried that online criticism by its citizens would “ruin the facade of the perfect Games.” The International Olympic Committee has come under criticism for being silent and not holding China to account for this infringement of freedoms as well as alleged previous sport related rights abuses by Beijing.

‘I can’t go home’
On-going unrest in Myanmar pitting pro-democracy armed groups against the military since May 2021 has ensued in civilians being targeted by airstrikes and indiscriminate gunfire. The fighting has resulted in many citizens being displaced and forced to abandon their homes with some seeking refuge in forests and mountains where they lack access to basic necessities. The growing humanitarian crisis in the Southeast Asian nation has seen families make desperate and uncertain journeys in search of food and medical supplies. “We are falling sick, but we cannot visit a clinic,” said one displaced resident. Myanmar’s military has been accused of targeting and killing civilians returning to villages to fetch food as well as blocking aid from reaching the mountains and forests as it attempts to thwart the uprisings.

190 and still going
Jonathan, a giant land tortoise, is the oldest known living animal in the world. Jonathan, who has lived on the remote island of St Helena, a tiny volcanic British territory more than a thousand miles off the coast of Africa, for 140 years is recorded to have arrived as a full-grown tortoise. “To be honest, I suspect he’s older, but we can never know,” said Joe Hollins, the veterinarian who cares for Jonathan. He has spent most of his life roaming the grounds of the St. Helena governor’s residence, Plantation House, with three other tortoises. Jonathan is originally from the Seychelles Islands in the Indian Ocean and was gifted to the then governor of St Helena some time between 1882 and 1886. “It was quite traditional for tortoises to be used as diplomatic gifts around the world, if they weren’t eaten first,” Hollins said. They were harvested by ship crews because they were stackable and didn’t need food or water for days. Although Jonathan has lost his sight and sense of smell, with good care and attention, he may have many more years ahead of him.
The cleaning crow crew

Sweden has recruited an unlikely clean up crew to rid the city of cigarette buds. Corvid Cleaning, a Swedish Company has trained crows to pick up cigarette buds and deposit them in a bespoke machine designed by a start-up in Södertälje, near Stockholm. The birds participate voluntarily and receive food for every bud they deposit. The Keep Sweden Tidy Foundation says that more than 1bn cigarette butts are left on Sweden’s streets annually, representing 62% of the country’s litter. New Caledonian crows are as good as a seven-year-old human at reasoning hence the decision to recruit them to cut down on the estimated £1,6 million annual street cleaning bill. Still under pilot phase, the project is expected to be rolled out throughout the city of Södertälje after possible health impact on the crows has been observed. “It would be interesting to see if this could work in other environments as well. Also from the perspective that we can teach crows to pick up cigarette butts but we can’t teach people not to throw them on the ground. That’s an interesting thought,” said Tomas Thernström, a waste strategist.
The bear village

In a small village on Kolyuchin island, in the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug of the Russian Federation, polar bears have taken over an abandoned polar weather station. Photographer Dmitry Kokh discovered polar bears on his trip to Wrangel Island, a UNESCO-recognised nature reserve that serves as a refuge to the animals. The village, abandoned in 1992 is an ideal space for the bears. They roam in and out of the house and discarded fuel barrels left behind by humans. Polar bears are curious in nature and will always try to go through any open door or window. The bears ironically have also retreated to the buildings as protection from humans who have hunted them for centuries. Kokh took pictures from a drone equipped with special low-noise propellers and used tricks of the trade that allowed him to shoot the animals without disturbing them. Every nine years the ice is close to the shore and the bears don’t have to go far north which is why they take shelter at the abandoned weather station.

The Great Gift of Active Citizens: How the PVO Bill Threatens Active Citizenship in Zimbabwe
The gazetting of the PVO Amendment Bill has raised a lot of questions and concerns in civic society as Zimbabweans deal with increasingly shrinking civic space. In its latest publication, the Zimbabwe Human Rights Association (ZimRights) highlights how the Bill is a threat to active citizenship and how it violates several fundamental constitutional freedoms. The importance of civic space as an arena for the coalescing of ordinary people to defend the values they treasure is underscored. The report explores the relationship between civic space and grassroots organising, emphasising how when either is threatened both feel the effects. ZimRights demonstrates how civic space is enabled by three central rights which are the rights to freedom of association, freedom of peaceful assembly and freedom of expression. It is incumbent upon the state to respect and promote these rights, legislation which frustrates such fundamental civil liberties is thus an affront to human rights. The report emphasises that civic space can be regulated without the state violating the Constitution or imposing arduous requirements on communities and organisations.

George Orwell is watching you
An ugly word for a nasty deed. Redact. Strictly speaking, a rare word and one that means simply to edit for publication. But politicians, civil servants, military and intelligence functionaries, and sundry government hangers-on have managed to imbue redact with the singular and sinister meaning of edit out – cut out, remove, delete, obscure – before publication. 

All of which is a real-life demonstration of the etymological root of redact, the Latin redigere,
“to bring back” – exactly what the hackers-out are doing. Once more government-speak strikes a blow to truth and meaning on its journey towards Newspeak, the content-free official language in George Orwell’s novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. 

In Orwell’s terrible world of Big Brother, individuality and freedom – of person, speech and thought – are discouraged and actively limited. Those sad excuses for lexicographers working on the 10th edition of the Newspeak Dictionary are zealously
“chasing down old unnecessary words and chucking them down the memory hole”. They are fiendishly imaginative in their mission to cut, cut, cut: why should the opposite of “good” be bad, they ask. Much better is “ungood” and so “excellent” becomes “plus good” and “splendid” morphs into “double plus good”.

Euphemism abounds such that very soon the populace no longer has the verbal blocks to build a meaningful sentence or convey even a slightly complex thought. Which is what Big Brother wants: a docile, unthinking, uncritical and inarticulate mass. The
“old speak”, with all its “useless shades” of meaning is gone, replaced by a narrow range of consciousness that makes “thought crime” impossible because there is not a sufficient vocabulary to express dissent. The dream of all autocrats and authoritarians – Donald Trump, Boris Johnson, Jair Bolsonaro, Narendra Modi, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Viktor Orbán, Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping, General Min Aung Hlaing (head of the Myanmar military), Abiy Ahmed, Bashar al-Assad, Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud et al – is achieved by the relentless monitoring, arrest, torture, re-education and effective brain-deletion of the Big Brother regime. And those are the fortunate victims.

‘Solidity to pure wind’
The evil wordmongers working to extend this population paralysis concoct slogans and special-interest organisations that chill in their Hitlerian register: “War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.” Hate Week. The Anti-Sex League.

There is much talk these days of dystopian fiction. Nothing contemporary – in fiction and academic work on dystopias real and imagined – comes close to the visceral reality and sheer horror that Orwell created. It was one of the most fortunate accidents of history, a privilege for a writer and thinker, that Orwell lived through and saw fascism, socialism and communism in their pomp.

What he would have made of so-called Westminster-style democracy in 2022 is not difficult to discern. He would have shown contempt for Johnson, a man for whom Orwell’s unforgettable sentence from his celebrated essay Politics and the English Language seems to have been written:
“Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.”

Of course, as Orwell points out in that essay, “The word Fascism has now no meaning except in so far as it signifies ‘something not desirable’.” He adds, “The words democracy, socialism, freedom, patriotic, realistic, justice, have each of them several different meanings which cannot be reconciled with one another. In the case of a word like democracy, not only is there no agreed definition, but the attempt to make one is resisted from all sides.”

Justice – now there’s a word and concept that goes to the heart of the investigations into state capture in South Africa by the Zondo commission and the Covid lockdown-breaking parties at 10 Downing Street in London by Sue Gray. Orwell would have approved of the clear and simple writing of both the Zondo report and the Gray “update”, models of conveying complicated situations involving multiple players in a direct and accessible way for the reader. Whether they achieve justice – the aim hoped for, if not stated – is moot. 

But then to disagree with Orwell here is Aristotle, in his Nicomachean Ethics, on justice. The just person is one who does not break the law or violate the legitimate interests of others – literally, one who takes only his share of good things and his whole share of evil things. For Aristotle, justice depends on legality being upheld in the polis (the state) and equality existing among individuals. Even the casual observer of affairs in South Africa and the United Kingdom will see that neither of those necessary conditions exist in either place.

Justice for none rather than justice for all. But there is always the hope – because we are human and, as a poet once observed,
“hope springs eternal” – that Aristotle’s ageless definition will one day come to pass on Earth: “The just, then, is the lawful and the fair, the unjust the unlawful and the unfair.”

Disability-Inclusive GBV Programming - Strengthening Resilience of Community-Based Organisations: Hlanganisa Institute for Development in Southern Africa 
Deadline: 28 February 2022

HLANGANISA Institute for Development in Southern Africa (Hlanganisa) is a renowned social justice organisation that supports community development through provision of small grants and accompaniment to community-based organisations (CBOs). This support is envisioned to contribute towards protection of human rights, promoting social justice, fostering active citizenry and delivery of key services to underserved communities. A key component of Hlanganisa’s work is to support the integration of gender-based violence and disability programming at grassroots level. This is done through building institutional resilience and supporting disability inclusion in programming. 

The Covid pandemic has severely impacted the work of many CBOs, not least those servicing the needs of women affected by GBV. Because many of these CBOs support vulnerable subpopulations like women with disability, this constituency has been grossly impacted. Hlanganisa is undertaking a multi-country intervention aimed at building resilience of such CBOs and ensuring that they continue to provide these critical services. 

Hlanganisa invites community-based organizations in Malawi, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe to submit funding proposals. CBOs applying for this grant should be organizations working at community level with women and girls with disabilities. In addition to funding successful CBOs, Hlanganisa will also offer a comprehensive capacity development programme to further strengthen the institutional capacity of successful organisations.

Basic criteria for applicants 
All organizations applying for funding must comply with all the criteria listed below.

Organizations must
Be a registered community-based organization, physically located in the community where the intervention will be implemented; Work on gender-based violence or disability issues as a core business; Have strong leadership, participation and empowerment by people who experience gender-based violence (particularly women and girls with disabilities); Have a vision for transforming unequal gender power relations; Demonstrate alignment with Hlanganisa’s overall strategy.

Volunteers: Zimbabwe Workcamps Association (ZWA)
Deadline: 14 February 2022

Voluntary Services for Archaeology:  27 February - 05 March 2022

Zimbabwe Workcamps Association (ZWA) is a local inspired Youth Volunteer Organisation founded in October 1993. It is a non-political, non-sectarian, not for profit, membership organisation which uses voluntary services as a double-edged sword namely education and community development. Zimbabwe Workcamps Association seeks to promote intercultural education, national understanding, community development through voluntary services. ZWA is registered with the Zimbabwe Youth Council under the Ministry of Youths, Sports, Arts and Recreation. ZWA is a member of the Southern Africa Workcamps Cooperation (SAWC), which is a regional body that promotes development and voluntary work. ZWA is also a member of a continental platform Network of Africa Voluntary Services (NAVO), a continental body which aim to achieve prosperous and peaceful Africa through youth empowerment, volunteerism and pan Africa exchange as well as scaling up global, regional and national actions to meet young people’s needs, realize their rights and tap their possibilities for the benefit of the country. ZWA is also a member of the Coordinating Committee for International Voluntary Service (CCIVS).

ZWA’s fundamental principles
Volunteerism is an effective way of providing alternative education and training opportunities to people. Participation in volunteer projects allows people to broaden their horizons, to familiarize themselves with different social and cultural environments, and develop self-esteem. They will be able to put their energy, enthusiasm and creativity to good use by participating in practical activities which they have a say in defining. They will learn about taking responsibility and working in a team. The other basic fundamental principle is the contribution made by volunteers at grassroots level. Projects with strong local roots provide the best opportunity to integrate volunteers into the host community. This usually increases the educational value of experience for the volunteer and the host community; in this regard volunteerism has tangible impacts to all stakeholders involved.

Khami national monuments
Khami ruins national monument is located to the west of the Khami River, 22 km from the City of Bulawayo. The property, located on a 1300 m, covers an area of about 108 ha, spread over a distance of about 2 km from the Passage Ruin to the North Ruin. The property was the capital of the Torwa dynasty, which arose from the collapse of the Great Zimbabwe Kingdom between 1450 -1650 and was abandoned during the Ndebele incursions of the 19th century. It is composed of a complex series of platforms of dry-stone walled structures, emulating a later development of Stone Age culture. The chief’s residence (Mambo) was located towards the north on the Hill Ruin site with its adjacent cultivation terraces. The population lived in daga huts of cobwork, surrounded by a series of granite walls. These structures display a high standard of workmanship, a great number of narrow passageways and perambulatory galleries and impressive chevron and chequered wall decorations. Khami conforms to Great Zimbabwe in a number of archaeological and architectural aspects but it possesses certain features particular to itself. Revetments or retaining walls found expression for the first time in the architectural history of the sub-region at Khami, and with it were elaborate decorations; it still has the longest decorated wall in the entire sub-region.

The architecture of the site and the archaeological artefacts provide evidence for an exceptional understanding of strong, united, early civilizations. They also offer information on the property’s complex socio-economic, religious and spiritual significance for the local communities and for the overall chronological development of Zimbabwe tradition. Khami is the second largest stone-built monument in Zimbabwe. Its historical importance lies in its position at the watershed between the history of Great Zimbabwe and the later Zimbabwe period. It is one of the few Zimbabwe sites that were not destroyed by treasure hunters and its undisturbed stratigraphy is scientifically important in providing a much clearer insight into the history of the country.

Project overview
ZWA in close cooperation with the Khami National Monuments are organising a one-week volunteer project at Khami Monuments. The primary objective of this national volunteer project is to assist in the preservation of our national heritage. The work will consist of general cleaning and maintenance work at the national monuments such as cutting down grasses, repairing walking trails, all things being equal volunteers will be given the opportunity to work on the restoration of the walls at Khami Ruins. Experts from the Department of museum and national monuments will dictate the pace. The volunteers will also perform any special task assigned by the department

Expectations from projects
The project will take place at Khami National Monuments. This project is not that difficult at all, what is only needed is flexibility, positive mentally attitude as well as openness to new culture, new experience. The secret remedy to make the most of your time while volunteering with ZWA is to adapt to the local environment. It is important to highlight that each and every project is unique.

SOS Children’s Villages has over 65,000 children in its direct care and supports 347,000 children, young people and adults through its family strengthening programs. Founded in 1949, its operations are guided by the spirit of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the UN Guidelines for the Alternative Care of Children. The organization operates a federation system, with member associations present in 137 countries and territories, with most of those having an autonomous board. There are more than 39,000 employees of the member associations and the General Secretariat, which comprises the International Office in Austria and five Regional Offices. 

General background 
In its meeting on 10 September 2018, the Finance and Audit committee (FAC) of the International Senate of SOS Children’s Villages International decided that social liabilities must be calculated by all non-self-sufficient National Associations from 2019 on, and must be reflected in their balance sheets. It is important to have a transparent overview on social liabilities in the federation and in each NA in order to comply with accounting standards and to plan and monitor the future funding requirements for the National Associations. 

At SOS, social liabilities comprise all social benefits for employees which are paid by SOS Children’s Villages AND which are mandatory financial obligations accumulated in the past and leading to a future cash-out. These social benefits are either based on mandatory state rules or on SOS Federation Guidelines (if those are implemented / enacted in the Member Association).

Out of the broad range of possible employee benefits, only those benefits should be considered here which cause long-term financial obligations after the end of a work contract. They include benefits for retirement, end-of-service for retirement and benefits for voluntary resignation. One important example is the “full retirement benefits” for SOS mothers and aunts living in the village according to HR Standard 10, as explained in the next section.
