          Zambia Denies Asylum Claim by Zimbabwe Opposition Leader      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Zambian Immigration authorities today rejected a claim of asylum by Tendai Biti, a leading figure in the MDC Alliance opposition party who fled post-election violence and certain arrest in Zimbabwe.

Zambia also rejected claims by five others travelling with Biti – lawyer Nqobizitha Mlilo, civil society activist Zachariah Godi, and opposition activists Tawanda Chitekwe, Kudakwashe Simbaneuta, and Clever Rambanepasi –  who lodged their application for asylum at the Chirundu border post.

The six fled the violent security forces’ crackdown in Zimbabwe that has followed post-election protests on August 1. The Zimbabwe police had issued an arrest warrant for Biti on trumped-up charges of public violence and allegedly declaring opposition leader Nelson Chamisa the winner of the presidential election in contravention of electoral laws.

Biti told Human Rights Watch by phone that the Zambian authorities told him and his five companions that there were no grounds to grant them asylum and were planning to deport them back to Zimbabwe. Biti asked Human Rights Watch to help seek the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees’ (UNHCR) urgent intervention to prevent his forced return to Zimbabwe where he fears for his life. If forcibly returned to Zimbabwe, Biti and his colleagues are at grave risk of political persecution, torture, or even death. If Zambia proceeds with the deportation it will violate its obligations under international law, including several treaties binding on it, that prohibit the return of any person to a country where they face a real risk of torture or other ill treatment (the principle of non-refoulment).

“It looks like they [Zambian Immigration Officials] have made a decision to hand us back to the Junta. We are truly in God’s hands,” Biti said. Zambian lawyer Gilbert Phiri is assisting the six to lodge an appeal in court against rejection of asylum and to stop deportation to Zimbabwe from Chirundu where the six are being held by Immigration officials.

Human Rights Watch has documented a pattern of abductions, beatings, and harassment of third parties by security forces and unidentified armed men on the trail of senior opposition MDC Alliance officials in Harare since the election. Zimbabwe authorities have turned a blind eye to these abuses and have neglected to take steps to halt the abuses or hold those responsible to account.

Now is the time for regional institutions like the Southern African Development Community (SADC), the Africa Union, and the wider international community to urgently press the Zimbabwe authorities to end the crackdown and to guarantee the safety and rights of all citizens irrespective of their political affiliations, including Biti and his five colleagues. This includes respecting the rights of asylum seekers from Zimbabwe and the principle of non-refoulment, and not forcibly returning Biti and his colleagues or others to Zimbabwe without guarantees of their safety from political persecution.

Both meetings are scheduled for 6 p.m.For that initial international foray into Europe and Asia, the Nelsons—joined by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and his wife, Sister Patricia Holland—spoke in meetings held in London, England; Nairobi, Kenya; Harare, Zimbabwe; Jerusalem, Israel; Bengaluru, India; Bangkok, Thailand; Hong Kong; and Laie.This will be the Nelsons’ fourth major trip to meet with Church members in devotional settings since his ordination and sustaining as president of the Church, and his second devotional to be conducted outside of the state of Utah. The April 2018 Global Ministry Tour concluded with a devotional stop in Laie, Hawaii, while the Nelsons spoke in a June 3 worldwide youth devotional that originated from Salt Lake City.With its 10 provinces and three territories, Canada is home to nearly 200,000 members in 496 congregations as well as eight temples and seven missions, including the Vancouver Canada Temple and the Canada Vancouver Mission.The September 15 date could draw the largest in-person crowd in his first year as Church president—the Saturday evening event is slated to be held in Seattle’s Safeco Field, the 47,943 seat ballpark with a retractable roof that is home to the Seattle Mariners of Major League Baseball.Church statistics for the state of Washington include 288,515 members in 546 congregations as well as three temples and seven missions.

          A RACIST COMMUNIST FAMINE GROWS IN SOUTH AFRICA      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
South African President Cyril Ramaphosa
Leftist land seizures and racist politics will lead to genocide.

"Strongman politics are ascendant," Barack Obama warned in South Africa. He spoke passionately about "the politics of fear and resentment" at the Mandela Lecture. He worried that we were entering a world, “where might makes right and politics is a hostile competition between tribes and races and religions.”

While the media used the remarks to attack Trump's meeting with Putin, Obama had shared a stage with South African President Cyril Ramaphosa who had come to power promising to seize land from white farmers. Ramaphosa was the latest in a series of ANC strongmen, including his predecessor, an alleged rapist, beginning with the Communist terrorist whose legacy Obama was commemorating.

President Ramaphosa had vowed early on to seize land from white farmers without compensation. "The expropriation of land without compensation is envisaged as one of the measures that we will use to accelerate redistribution of land to black South Africans,” he had declared. And denied that such racist Communist tactics were unconstitutional. Now he’s moving to modify South Africa’s constitution.

Initially, the ANC, which is partnered with the South African Communist Party, had claimed that seizing land would not violate the law. Now it’s actually going to change the South African constitution.

“It has become pertinently clear that our people want the constitution to be more explicit about expropriation of land without compensation,” President Ramaphosa announced.

When your only rule is mob rule by ANC thugs, it doesn’t really matter what a piece of paper says.

“We will accelerate our land redistribution programme not only to redress a grave historical injustice, but also to bring more producers into the agricultural sector and to make more land available for cultivation,” Ramaphosa claimed in his State of the Nation address.

Zimbabwe had already made great strides in improving agriculture through land seizures.

Land was stolen from the farmers who knew how to work it and handed out to politically connected thugs. Soon the former "bread basket" of Southern Africa was starving. Black groups pleaded with the white farmers to remain. Rural Zimbabwe died. Hyperinflation made the currency worthless. A trillion dollars might not be enough to buy one egg. A former food exporter was forced to rely on food aid.

"If white settlers just took the land from us without paying for it," Mugabe had declared, "we can, in a similar way, just take it from them without paying for it."

Ramaphosa’s rhetoric is an echo of one of Africa’s worst racist strongmen. Land seizures won’t bring South African land into “full use”, as he claims. It will mean productive land falling into the hands of ANC thugs who will be too corrupt, incompetent and greedy to do the hard work of working the land.

South Africa’s agricultural sector will go the way of Zimbabwe.

Cyril Ramaphosa is one of South Africa's richest men and has an estimated net worth of $550 million. How did a socialist student activist make a mint? The answer is an inevitable as it is unsurprising.

South Africa’s agricultural sector has been steadily in decline. Farms used to provide millions of jobs. Now they offer less than a million. Wheat planting has fallen to a third. Cotton to a tenth. A country that once...Read More HERE

Eyring, Second Counselor in the First Presidency.For the latter, the Nelsons—along with Elder Neil L. Andersen of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and his wife, Sister Kathy Andersen—are scheduled to conduct three evening devotionals in as many days. Planned stops are Friday, August 17, in Winnipeg, Manitoba; Saturday, August 18, in Montreal, Quebec; and Sunday, August 19, in Hamilton, Ontario.Church statistics for the state of Washington include 288,515 members in 546 congregations as well as three temples and seven missions.

          Out of Africa: Great Dogs You’ve Never Heard Of      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

By Dr. Karen Shaw Becker

Today, our globetrotting adventure in search of native dogs takes us to the continent of Africa and the Republic of Madagascar.

Native Dogs of Africa

Dogs originating in Africa include:

Abyssinian Sand Terrier

Azawakh

Africanis

Boerboel

Aidi

Sloughi

Another dog that hails from the old growth forest regions of the Congo Basin in Africa is the Basenji, an ancient hunting breed that’s considered “barkless,” thanks to an oddly shaped larynx that produces more of a yodel than a bark. Basenjis are also unique in that they come into estrus only once a year instead of two or more times like most dogs. In addition, the breed has little to no “doggy smell.”

basenji#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

These little dogs are known to be alert, energetic and inquisitive. They’re climbers, so chain link fences aren’t much of a challenge. They tend to bond closely to a favorite human. Things Basenjis don’t like can include other non-canine pets and wet weather. Basenjis often stand on their hind legs (think meerkat), either by balancing or by leaning on something, to investigate a curiosity. They have a strong prey drive, and are said to be difficult to train.

The handsome Rhodesian Ridgeback is also native to Africa, specifically Zimbabwe (formerly Rhodesia), and is also known as the African Lion Hound or African Lion Dog.

The Rhodesian Ridgeback's distinguishing feature is a ridge of hair that runs along the back in the opposite direction from the rest of the coat. The ridge is usually about 2 inches in width at its widest point. But despite being named for the unique ridge, many purebred Rhodesian Ridgebacks don't possess this physical trait.

Rhodesian ridgeback puppy#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

These dogs are said to be willful, often stubborn and known for testing boundaries. They’re independent, intelligent and confident dogs that need an assertive guardian who will insist on appropriate training and boundary setting. That said, Ridgies are also sensitive to criticism and harsh discipline, and should learn how to get on in the world through the use of positive reinforcement behavior training.

The Royal Dog of Madagascar

There may be only one dog native to the island of Madagascar, the adorably fluffy Coton de Tulear. The Coton's ancestors may have been brought to Madagascar in the 16th and 17th centuries on pirate ships, perhaps to control rats on the ships, or as companions, or as booty stolen from other ships. Tulear is a port now also known as Toliara.

The Coton is linked most closely to the Bichon Tenerife and the Tenerife Terrier. The dogs were bred as companions for the ruling tribe in Madagascar, which is why they have very little prey drive or interest in hunting. Their unique cottony coat may be the result of a single gene mutation.

coton de tulear dog#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

When an American, Dr. Robert Jay Russell, discovered the breed in Madagascar in 1973 and brought the first ones to the U.S., he coined the phrase the Royal Dog of Madagascar and the name stuck. In 1974, Madagascar released a stamp with an image of the Coton, affirming their status nation's "royal dog".

The Coton de Tulear weighs from 11 to 15 pounds, and has a medium-to-long, fluffy, cottony coat that is more like hair than fur. It’s a non-shedding breed with low dander and little to no odor when bathed and groomed regularly. Cotons are very eager to please, which makes them easy to train.

The Coton is known to be a playful, affectionate, intelligent little dog. Although normally quiet, they tend to make lots of joyful noise when having fun, running, playing or swimming. They also have a habit of jumping up and walking on their hind legs to please their people!

          Intergovernmental planning and budgeting in Zimbabwe: learning the lessons of the past      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
In Zimbabwe, the Prime Minister’s Directives on Decentralisation and Development of 1984 and 1985, together with the Provincial Council and Administration Act 1985, constitute the foundation for post-independence attempts to ensure effective governance. The Directives provided for the establishment of hierarchical structures and mechanisms to coordinate government activities, including development planning at various levels of government. This paper asks whether these structures and mechanisms have been effective in promoting ‘sound’ intergovernmental planning and budgeting, and whether they are still relevant given that in 2013 Zimbabwe adopted a new Constitution with greater promises, visions and demands than its predecessor, the Lancaster House Constitution. The paper argues that the adoption of a new Constitution provides a valuable opportunity to reform the intergovernmental planning and budgeting process, which to date has proved ineffective in fostering integrated and coherent effective governance.

The action by Zambia is totally against international law and practice. If Zambia had a problem granting refugee status to Tendai Biti, they should have allowed him to seek for refuge in another country. The deportation to Zimbabwe is an attempt to intimidate the opposition. The claim that Zimbabweans are safe is a fiction. People disappear and are never found. Just as in the Gukurahundi days. The report by SADC is not supported by the events on the ground. Why are V11 forms being followed up? Why are agents being harrassed and told to sign fresh V11 forms? Why are the lawyers that are working on the petition being harassed and trailed? Why were agents chased away from some polling stations? The interference will not work. Time has come for this country to be free. They may have guns but the people are more powerful than any weapons that can be pointed at the people. They tried to exterminate the Ndebele of parts of the Midlands and Matabeleland and failed. They may kill some but not all. The African SADC and AU have not helped our democracy. We have to fight this on our own. We have nothing to lose but our chains. We are people of the accursed world under ZANU. Freedom is coming tomorrow. Godisinit

          Zimbabwe safe for overland trip?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Hi

I was last in Zimbabwe as a child, on a 4x4 overland trip with my parents through Southern Africa. We went with another family, with two 4x4s in convoy, from Johannaesburg to various game reserves and attractions (in southern Botswana, all over Zimbabwe and southern tip of Zambia) over the course of a few weeks. I've done little travelling in the region since then (that was back in about 1998-1999). Obviously Zimbabwe's economy has declined since then, but I was wondering if it is still safe to do that sort of trip through the region? In particular, is Zimbabwe safe to travel through alone in a 4x4 - especially with elections coming up this year?

          House of Stone by Novuyo Rosa Tshuma review – Zimbabwe’s story extraordinarily told      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
A debut novel that is by turns painful and playful as its characters are forced to perform unspeakable acts to survive

This Zimbabwean debut is not an easy book to describe. To call it clever or ambitious is to do it a disservice – it is both, but also more than that. It is definitely not faultless, but it is large enough and unusual enough to shrug off its defects and still leave the reader impressed. The opening section features a tenant, 24-year-old Zamani, who aspires to make his landlord his father and his landlady his mother – to make them love him more than they loved their missing son, Bukhosi. A simple enough conceit, but Novuyo Rosa Tshuma is a wily writer, perhaps as wily as her main character; for as soon as the reader thinks he or she has figured out the story’s trajectory, the narrative takes an unexpected turn.

Tshuma cannot write a ​boring sentence: she inhabits her narration so totally that the silliest actions are believable

          China’s Aggressive Surveillance Technology Will Spread Beyond Its Borders      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Chinese government has wholeheartedly embraced surveillance technology to exercise control over its citizenry in ways both big and small. It’s facial-scanning passers-by to arrest criminals at train stations, gas pumps, and sports stadiums and broadcasting the names of individual jaywalkers. Government-maintained social credit scores affect Chinese citizens’ rights and privileges if they associate with dissidents. In Tibet and Xinjiang, the government is using facial recognition and big data to surveil the physical movements of ethnic minorities, individually and collectively, to predict and police demonstrations before they even start. China is even using facial recognition to prevent the overuse of toilet paper in some public bathrooms.

We may soon see dictators in other countries use these sorts of tools, too. If American cities and states are laboratories of democracy, China’s remote provinces have become laboratories of authoritarianism. China is now exporting internationally a suite of surveillance, facial recognition, and data tools that together equip governments to repress citizens on a scale and with a ruthless algorithmic effectiveness that previous generations of strongmen could only dream of. Call it algorithmic authoritarianism. Where yesterday’s strongmen were constrained by individual informants and case-by-case sleuthing, tomorrow’s authoritarians will, like China, be able to remotely identify thousands of specific individuals in public via cameras, constantly track them, and use unprecedented artificial intelligence and computing to crunch surveillance information and feed it back into the field in real time. This technology is still being imperfectly and inconsistently applied, but China is working to close the gaps. And even the perception of surveillance where it doesn’t exist has been shown to shape behavior.

The limits of China’s willingness to use these tools at home or export them to others are unknown. Worse still, China’s digital authoritarianism could emerge as an exportable model, appealing to leaders on the fence about democratic norms, that could undercut or even rival liberal democracy.

Part of what makes technologically enabled authoritarianism so complex is that the tools also have immense promise to serve customers and citizens well. They’re double-edged swords. Consider the surreal case of the California-based suspected serial killer apprehended after his relative voluntarily submitted DNA to an online ancestry database that matched material at the crime scene—or the accused Maryland newsroom shooter quickly identified by facial recognition. Or the lower-caste Indians who can now receive government benefits thanks to India’s national ID Aadhaar program, which relies on a database that has collected the iris scans and fingerprints of more than 1 billion Indians in a country where hundreds of millions previously lacked state identity cards. Or the Londoners kept safe by massive numbers of CCTV cameras. Or the predictive policing pilot launched in New Orleans with the pro-bono help of Palantir. Even in democracies with meaningful legal checks on state power, leveraging A.I. for policing often suffers from a lack of transparency, citizen input, and a serious risk of biased enforcement and overreach.

China and a few small, advanced, authoritarian states such as Singapore (which is soliciting Chinese bids to install 110,000 advanced facial recognition sensors on the small city-state’s lampposts) and the United Arab Emirates are at the forefront of the application of these technologies. But as China embarks on a trillion-dollar global infrastructure construction binge known as the Belt and Road Initiative, it is already exporting its own tech-enabled authoritarian toolkit to gain profit or goodwill with local authorities, or simply to extend the reach of its own surveillance.

What happens when these technologies migrate to bigger, more fractious societies? This won’t happen overnight—and the financial and logistical obstacles to broad implementation are significant. But there is every reason to think that in a decade or two, if not sooner, authoritarians and would-be strongmen in places like Turkey, Hungary, Egypt, or Rwanda will seek these tools and use them to thwart civil society and crush dissent in ways that weaken democracy globally.

Already there are reports that Zimbabwe, for example, is turning to Chinese firms to implement nationwide facial-recognition and surveillance programs, wrapped into China’s infrastructure investments and a larger set of security agreements as well, including for policing online communication. The acquisition of black African faces will help China’s tech sector improve its overall data set.

Malaysia, too, announced new partnerships this spring with China to equip police with wearable facial-recognition cameras. There are quiet reports of Arab Gulf countries turning to China not just for the drone technologies America has denied but also for the authoritarian suite of surveillance, recognition, and data tools perfected in China’s provinces. In a recent article on Egypt’s military-led efforts to build a new capital city beyond Cairo’s chaos and revolutionary squares, a retired general acting as project spokesman declared, “a smart city means a safe city, with cameras and sensors everywhere. There will be a command center to control the entire city.” Who is financing construction? China.

While many governments are making attempts to secure this information, there have been several alarming stories of data leaks. Moreover, these national identifiers create an unprecedented opportunity for state surveillance at scale. What about collecting biometric information in nondemocratic regimes? In 2016, the personal details of nearly 50 million people in Turkey were leaked.

Now is the time for those invested in individual freedom—in government, in civil society, and in the tech sector—to be thinking about the challenges ahead.

This starts with basic transparency and awareness at home, in international fora, and ultimately inside nations deciding how and whether to adopt the tools of algorithmic authoritarianism. Diplomats, CEOs, activists, and others will need to use their various bully pulpits to reach members of the public. Oversight bodies like the U.S. Congress and European Parliament should convene hearings to hold tech companies and government agencies accountable for their role in exporting elements of the authoritarian toolkit in search of profits or market share. Forging reasonable, balanced approaches to these new technologies at home will be a crucial aspect of pushing other states to do the same. As a recent blog post from Microsoft’s President Brad Smith essentially calling for intensive study and regulation of this space makes clear, now is the time to bridge the tech-policy divide to find feasible, ethical solutions.

Reaching beyond established democracies to set international norms and standards will be difficult, but it is essential to try. An international body, be it the European Union or United Nations, will need to put forward a set of best practices for protecting individual rights in an era of facial recognition. Companies and countries alike can group together to commit to protecting citizens by placing limits on facial recognition, offering the right in some instances to opt out of sharing biologically identifiable information, as Indians fought for and won, or protecting identifying data on the back end.

China and other determined authoritarian states may prove undeterrable in their zeal to adopt repressive technologies. A more realistic goal, as Georgetown University scholar Nicholas Wright has argued, is to sway countries on the fence by pointing out the reputational costs of repression and supporting those who are advocating for civil liberties in this domain within their own countries. Democracy promoters (which we hope will one day again include the White House) will also want to recognize the coming changes to the authoritarian public sphere. They can start now in helping vulnerable populations and civil society to gain greater technological literacy to advocate for their rights in new domains. It is not too early for governments and civil society groups alike to study what technological and tactical countermeasures exist to circumvent and disrupt new authoritarian tools.

Everyone will have to approach these developments with the humbling recognition that Silicon Valley is not the only game in town. Regardless of what happens stateside or in Europe, China will have formidable and growing indigenous capabilities to export to the rest of the world.

Seven years ago, techno-optimists expressed hope that a wave of new digital tools for social networking and self-expression could help young people in the Middle East and elsewhere to find their voices. Today, a new wave of Chinese-led technological advances threatens to blossom into what we consider an “Arab spring in reverse”—in which the next digital wave shifts the pendulum back, enabling state domination and repression at a staggering scale and algorithmic effectiveness.

Americans are absolutely right to be urgently focused on countering Russian weaponized hacking and leaking as its primary beneficiary sits in the Oval Office. But we also need to be more proactive in countering the tools of algorithmic authoritarianism that will shape the worldwide future of individual freedom.

          Cette campagne pour les préservatifs choque les internautes      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Depuis le milieu du mois de juillet, une campagne publicitaire lancée par Santé publique France fait la promotion du port du préservatif. Elle a été divisée en sept affiches contenant chacune une bonne raison de toujours avoir un préservatif sur soi

Mardi 7 août, le compte Twitter du ministère des Solidarités et de la Santé a relayé la raison numéro 3 : "Parce que ça t'évitera d'annoncer à l'infirmière/le médecin que tu as eu un rapport non protégé". 

Culpabilisant et sexiste 

Les internautes n'ont pas tardé à réagir, pointant du doigt le côté culpabilisant de la campagne. "Si on vous suit, il est honteux pour une personne de se rendre aux urgences afin de demander un TPE ou un simple dépistage", s'interroge un abonné Twitter. "Les professionnels de santé ne sont pas la pour juger les gens qui prennent un traitement post-exposition et/ou la pilule du lendemain. Et si certains le font, c'est anormal", remarque une autre. 

D'autres encore ont critiqué le fait que le mot "infirmière" soit au féminin et que "médecin" soit au masculin. 

Contacté par FranceInfo, Santé publique France s'est défendu en avançant la carte de l'humour. "Il est difficile pour les adolescents de parler de sexualité avec des adultes en général, y compris les professionnels de santé aussi bienveillants et accueillants soient-ils. C'est ce point de vue des adolescents que la campagne adopte", a précisé Nathalie Lydié, la responsable de l'unité Santé sexuelle.

Face aux remarques, l'agence a annoncé qu'elle allait modifier cette campagne publicitaire.

Who ordered this?

IN THE early hours of August 5th four men broke into a house in eastern Zimbabwe known to be home to activists for the MDC Alliance, the country’s main opposition bloc. They dragged the husband and wife outside before beating them with sticks on their back and buttocks. Two of the assailants took turns raping the wife; the other two raped the husband. All the while the children of the couple watched.

After holding peaceful elections on July 30th Zimbabwe has again descended into violence. At least six people were killed on the streets of the capital two days after the vote. Since then human-rights groups have recorded more than 150 alleged cases of abuse against opposition supporters (including that of the husband and wife above), most seemingly at the hands of soldiers. The true figure is almost certainly many times higher. Hundreds of MDC members have fled their homes, including Tendai Biti, one of the bloc’s senior figures, whose...

By MacDonald Dzirutwe HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwe's former finance minister and opposition leader Tendai Biti appeared in court on Thursday to be charged with stoking post-election violence in a case watched around the world as a test of President Emmerson Mnangagwa's treatment of opponents. Biti, whose People's Democratic Party had formed an election alliance with Nelson Chamisa's Movement for Democratic Change (MDC), sought asylum in neighbouring Zambia on Wednesday but was deported back to Zimbabwe in a move condemned by the United States. He was also charged with falsely and unlawfully announcing results of the July 30 election, which Chamisa rejected as fraudulent and is set to challenge in the Constitutional Court on Friday.
