That this House-

 

TAKING note of the G8 Agreement on Africa to increase aid and debt relief to African countries to the year 2010 concluded at Gleneagles, Scotland in July 2005;

 

AWARE of the G8’s decision for further aid, debt cancellation, more investment and most importantly revisiting the issue of farm subsidies and the grossly unfair international trade laws and other neo-liberal mischief;

 

ACKNOWLEDGING the importance of and obligation for accountability, good governance, respect of good governance on the part of African Governments, values that African Governments themselves have committed through the African Union and the New Partnership for Africa Initiative;

 

DISAPPOINTED that Government continues to deny the Zimbabwean people the benefit of, inter alia debt cancellation, investment, increased aid levels that would free resources for development and social concerns, as a result of its bad governance, opaqueness and human rights records;

 

ANGERED by the fact that the Zimbabwe Government continues to accumulate odious debt via purchase of arms and other goods not in the national interest; CONDEMNS and CENSORS the Government record of governance and violating human rights;

 

DEMANDS full disclosure from the Minister of Finance of the extent of

Zimbabwe’s domestic and external debt;

 

OBLIGES Government to clean up its act and to comply with its commitments to the UN, the AU and to NEPAD;

7.         MR CHIHOTA                 MR. L. MUGABE

 

That this House-

 

RECALLING that since the defeat of his party, the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC), in the 2000 general elections,  Mr Morgan Tsvangirai embarked upon an anti-government and anti-Zimbabwe campaign amongst western countries;

 

NOTING that Mr Tsvangirai has persistently advocated and campaigned for sanctions against Zimbabwe;

 

ALSO RECALLING that Mr Tsvangirai has called for a violent removal of the ZANU (PF) Government through orchestrated but failed mass action, mass stayaways and the so-called final push;

AWARE that the British Prime Minister, Mr Tony Blair, has unequivocally stated in the House of Commons that he is working with Mr Tsvangirai’s MDC party and other unnamed groups in the SADC region for a regime change in Zimbabwe;

 

OBSERVING that Mr Tsvangirai and the entire MDC leadership has traversed the entire continent, Europe and North America to campaign for the extension and intensification of sanctions against Zimbabwe;   

NOW THEREFORE:

 

CONDEMNS in the strongest terms the persistent unpatriotic behaviour bordering on treason by Mr Tsvangirai manifested in his recent appeal to, and threats against, South African companies investing in Zimbabwe and the cutting off of electricity and communication links between Zimbabwe and South Africa in order to bring about economic collapse and regime change.

 

EQUALLY CONDEMNS the like-minded Zimbabwe Congress of Trade

Union’s (ZCTU) support for an international ban on asbestos;

 

CALLS UPON all patriotic Zimbabweans to rally behind the Government and the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe economic turn-around programme and consolidation of the land reform programme.

  1. 9. Adjourned debate on Motion on the Report of the fact-finding mission to Zimbabwe to assess the scope and impact of operation Murambatsvina by the United Nations    (UN) Special Envoy on  Human Settlements.  (adjourned 28th July – The Minister of Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs).

 

[ Days elapsed:2]

Question proposed: That this House-

 

NOTING the publication of the ―Report of the Fact-Finding Mission to Zimbabwe to assess the Scope and Impact of Operation Murambatsvina‖ by the UN Special Envoy on Human Settlements in Zimbabwe, Mrs Anna Kajumulo Tibaijuka.

 

RECALLING that the Mission and its terms of reference were agreed at the highest levels between the Secretary General of the United Nations and His Excellency the President of the Republic of Zimbabwe and therefore had the blessing of the Government of the Republic of Zimbabwe.

 

APPRECIATING that the Report acknowledges Government’s position that it undertook Operation Murambatsvina to ―clean up the cities of illicit activities:, have cities without slums and ―secure people’s long term interests in line with the goal of the United Nation Habitat Agenda‖,

 

CONCERNED that, according to the Report, while purporting to target illegal dwellings and structures and to clamp down on alleged illicit activities, the Operation was carried out in an indiscriminate and unjustified manner with indifference to human suffering and with disregard to several provisions of national and international laws such that it will take several years before the affected people and society as a whole recover;

 

ALARMED by the Mission’s findings that the Operation has precipitated a humanitarian crisis of immense proportions affecting an estimated 700,000 people across the country who have either lost their homes or livelihood or both while indirectly affecting an estimated 2,4 million other people bringing the estimated total of those affected close to 18% of the population;

 

FURTHER ALARMED that, according to the Mission’s findings, evidence suggests that the Operation was based on improper advice by a few architects of the Operation;

 

URGES Government to focus on implementing the progressive recommendations of the Mission and to work with the international community through the United Nations to specifically address the plight of 18% of Zimbabwe’s population affected by the Operation as matter of urgency;

 

CALLS on government to immediately setup an independent commission of inquiry in terms of the laws of Zimbabwe to identify those whose properties or livelihood were destroyed and to determine who orchestrated the humanitarian crisis in order to hold accountable those responsible and to enable the prosecution of those who caused criminal negligence leading to deaths during the Operation;

 

FURTHER CALLS on Government to immediately compensate those whose properties or livelihood were unlawfully destroyed during the Operation- Prof Moyo

 

Amendment proposed by Mr Butau

 

To delete all the words after “House” and to substitute the following:

 

“NOTING that our cities, towns and other places were characterized by rampant crime, general disorder, moral decay and a serious threat to public health;

 

APPRECIATING that Government undertook Operation Murambatsvina to

clean up the cities of illicit activities; rid the cities of slums and secure people’s long-term interest in line with the goal of the United Nations Habitat Agenda;

 

NOTING that the Report of the UN Secretary General’s special envoy, Mrs Anna

Kajumulo Tibaijuka’s Fact-finding Mission to assess the scope and impact of

―Operation Murambatsvina‖ lacks a balanced reflection of the reality on the ground;

 

RECALLING that the British Prime Minister, Mr Tony Blair, who is obsessed with regime change and demonization of the President, Cde R.G. Mugabe and Zimbabwe, in keeping with his character, made a prophetic prediction that Mrs Tibaijuka would produce a ―good report‖;

 

WELCOMING the UN Secretary General, Mr Kofi Annan’s acceptance of His Excellency, the President, Cde R.G. Mugabe’s invitation to visit Zimbabwe and see for himself the situation on the ground;

 

NOW THEREFORE:

 

APPLAUDS Government for its openness and transparency in  accepting the visit of the UN Secretary General’s special envoy, Mrs Tibaijuka’s Fact-finding Mission and for cooperating with the Mission;

 

WELCOMES the UN Secretary General, Mr Kofi Annan for refusal to be dictated to by the Chair of the Security Council, Greece, obviously working with Zimbabwe’s known enemies;

 

CONGRATULATES the People’s Republic of China and the United Republic of Tanzania for their principled and resolute stand against attempts to place the matter before the Security Council;

 

CALLS UPON progressive nations to reject the continued habitual application by certain western countries of double standards against Zimbabwe for asserting its sovereignty and righting colonial imbalances and to condemn them for their silence on, and acquiescence to, similar events elsewhere and flagrant violations of the UN Charter and resolutions – Mr Butau  

             

  1. Adjourned debate on motion on the shortage of food, drugs, foreign currency and energy (adjourned 26TH July 2005  - The Minister of Justice, Legal and

Parliamentary Affairs)

Question proposed: That this House-

DISTURBED by the shrinking economy and failing state particularly in areas of service provision;

 

RESOLVES that the government immediately addresses the critical shortages of shortages of food energy and public sector amenities;
