Stupid doesn't begin to describe the incredible ignorance & selfishness displayed by so many thoughtless individuals. The more I learn about people, the more I like animals.

Bibliophile, you've made totally irrelevant points in view of the writer's objective to point out that renewal is needed in Africa, seen in a global perspective.

Most of the reformers who are represented by statues at the Reformation Wall memorial in Geneva were Calvinists. Martin Luther and Ulrich Zwingli are represented there but have significantly less prominent memorials at the side of the wall. It is all very well talking about having "simple" principles but surely the more important consideration all Christians need to consider is whose principles actually constitute orthodox Christianity? Calvin's? Luther's? Zwingli's? Anyone's?

The only reason why the Chinese authorities were able to "effect a seamless transition to a new leadership team" is because China is not a democracy and because its communist government intends to keep it that way by all means necessary including but not limited to brutally supressing its citizen's human rights. In that sense China has not progressed at all from "the grip of Mao".

I like Eddies writings but he is wrong to think that Africa is making great strides Africa will never in his lifetime of those of his children make great strides as it is not in the genes or capability to make great strides if not advised ,assisted and helped by another race.be it the Chines who I have a great admiration for even their politics fit in with their economic style.

EDDIE, you conclude with the statement:- " In Zimbabwe we have 5 million well educated young people in the Diaspora, they are learning new ways of doing things, adopting a new World View and when finally, they come home, nothing will ever be the same again." Many Zimbos in the diaspora, if not most of them, have been away from home for ten, twenty, thirty years. They have re-established themselves successfully in that diaspora, carving out careers, acquiring homes, raising families - in short, living normal lives in real freedom & democracy..... and, consequently, who now care little about Zimbabwe (and even less for notion of ever going to live there again). The criminal & brutal takeover of Zimbabwe has smouldered on for so long now, and has delivered such complete destruction & depravity masking itself as governance, that you will find most of that the Diasporan Birds have not only flown, they have gone for good ! Mugabe & tjums and ZANUpf should have been dealt with by the people decisively 15-20 years ago and, under the MDC banner they were. However, the ZANUpf accomplices in the regional Liberation Movements-become-governments generally (and the ANCpf in particular), made sure that this democratic process was criminally subverted. And you in the MDC rolled over and into bed with them......you were had, hook, line and sinker..... SHAME on you. Only recently, EDDIE, you penned your hopes on the succession of MNANGAGWA to the Praesidium..... SHAME on you again ! I think you need to stop smoking your socks, Eddie. I will consider viewing Zimbabwe's future in a more positive light when I learn of the full re-instatement of all Zim Government pensions, the seizure and repatriation of stolen loot stashed by Jongwe functionaries abroad, and when MUGABE, MNANANGAGWA & the Top Table in ZANUpf are securely behind bars awaiting arraignment in front of a competent Court of Real Justice. You really do need to cease dreaming and navel gazing, Eddie. Let's be honest - the false hope you preach does nobody any real good in the long term.....

One should be EXTREMELY cautious of quoting people when you actually know so little about them and their works The Nazis were particularly enamored of Luther’s 1543 work, “On The Jews And Their Lies.” Hendel said that though Luther was not always anti-Semitic, he came to hate Jews after they refused to convert en masse to Christianity. In November 1933, the Nazis marked the 450th anniversary of Luther’s birth with a nationwide “German Luther Day.” Party leaders praised Luther’s “ethno-nationalist mission,” and called their movement “the completion of the German Reformation in the Third Reich.” Nazi propagandists also celebrated the fact that the infamous Kristallnacht night of violence against Jews in 1938 fell over Luther’s birthday.

China's resources grabs have been widely vilified for long but the major foreign takeover of Africa's natural riches springs from a lot closer to home that is UK. The companies from UK are spread over 37 African countries.

The FBI probe is based on the letter that Peter Hain sent to the British Financial Authority which is completely biased and deliberately targets Gupta and Zuma family members.

amabhungane and Scorpio are just WMC instituted agencies that works for the interests of WMC bosses. They didn't just spiced the matters but they plotted. manipulated and wrongly presented the news related to Guptas. They are shame on the name of journalism.

Most of these stories about the Guptas are fake. Spread by white media to hide the wmc crimes.

The white media was on a spree of defaming the Guptas with its dirty work before taking the support of the above investigative agencies, as it wanted more arsenals to counter the public support of the Guptas.

The investigative agencies are known for their authenticity and their role is to investigate facts through painstaking research and put the facts same, as emerged in the investigation. But in South Africa, 2 of the leading investigative journalism agencies – amaBhungane & Scorpio’s role was in complete suspicion, as they were hired by the white media to add spice to their dirty deeds.

Ramaphosa just wanted to enrich his life by all of his wrongdoings and support whites in their inauthentic businesses but this is not possible now as he is going to be fired from ANC.

What does Ramaphosa still do all day? He's never up to any good. Sometimes, all people want is an assurance that their voices are important, they are heard, and he can't even do that even for his own benefit. He's literally useless now.

24/10/2017

we only have to think forward and Ramaphosa is almost useless.

Where did I say that? Stop trying to obfuscate. The opposition have no control in SA, they just try their level best to expose all the corruption and keep the ANC in check. They are not responsible for any of this mess.

People like Ramaphosa in the 'black' government are hand in glove with the corrupt white forces who are on the top of the trickle-down economy. He did not even listen to the demands of the operators .

You are a Gupta troll of note. Selling your children's future to spread lies in order to distract from the thieving Zuma/Gupta vermin. What are you going to do when there's no food, no water, no electricity and taxes are sky high? My guess is you're still going to find a way to blame someone else and then expect the UN/Red Cross to help.
