Zanu PF, ANC at war
By Richard Chidza, Staff Writer
President Robert Mugabe’s Zanu PF and some secret service agents have been fingered by the African National Congress (ANC) in a sinister plot to derail that country’s economy by fanning mines unrest.
The Daily News reported on Monday that the ruling party (Zanu PF) is on a $100 million mission to weaken perceived opponents through a raft of dirty strategies including sting operations.
The latest allegations emerged following an ANC national executive committee (NEC) meeting in Midrand, Gauteng at the weekend where tougher action was called against the mayhem, which has resulted in the death of nearly 50 people, including two policemen.
This also comes amid strong suspicions that Zanu PF is funding the activities of expelled former ANC Youth League president Julius Malema, accused of sowing seeds of discontent among SA’s poor — in a futile bid to derail Zuma’s re-election and his mediation efforts to the Zimbabwean crisis.
An ANC, NEC member, who spoke to the Daily News on condition of anonymity yesterday, said tension was once again rising between his party and Zanu PF.
“Our information is that Zanu PF continues to bite the hand that feeds it. We learnt at the meeting that some rogue state agents are deeply involved in the unrest that is afflicting our mines.
The country is divided as to whether business tycoon Cyril Ramaphosa committed the ultimate betrayal of the workers on whose shoulders he rose to prominence, or whether his involvement in drawing state and police intervention at the Lonmin mine was warranted. But whatever the outcome, Ramaphosa’s role in the Marikana massacre has transported him from a messiah waiting to be elevated to high political office to the league of fallen heroes, writes Ranjeni Munusamy.
GPS satellites carry a set of nuclear detonation detectors consisting of an optical sensor (Y-sensor), an X-ray sensor, a dosimeter, and an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) sensor (W-sensor), that form a major portion of the United States Nuclear Detonation Detection System.[68
