Justice pour le peuple du Zimbabwé

HARARE: Bien avant l'élection présidentielle qui a eu lieu au courant du mois, je pensais que si elle ne se déroulait pas normalement, cela aurait de graves répercussions dans le pays et dans toute la région. Malgré le spectre de la guerre et du terrorisme, j'ai appelé à des élections libres et honnêtes. Le peuple du Zimbabwe n'y a pas eu droit, à la place il a eu le terrorisme.

Depuis deux ans, les citoyens du Zimbabwé sont menacés, brimés et terrorisés par le ZANU-PF (Union nationale africaine du Zimbawé-Front patriotique), le parti du président Robert Mugabe, dans le cadre d'une politique de terrorisme d'Etat. Les exécutants sont des éléments douteux recrutés parmi les vétérans de la guerre d'indépendance menée il y a vingt ans, des milices gouvernementales et des groupes de jeunes ; ils bénéficient tous du concours de la police.

Dans beaucoup de zones rurales, à cause des intimidations et de la violence, mon parti, le Mouvement pour un changement démocratique (MDC), n'a pu entrer en contact avec la population. Et comme si cela ne suffisait pas, le gouvernement du président Mugabe, mon adversaire, a privé de leur droit de vote des centaines de milliers d'électeurs dans les villes, en particulier à Harare, la capitale, et à Chitungwiza. Du fait du nombre insuffisant de bureaux de vote, il semble que dans ces deux villes, plus de 360.000 personnes qui faisaient la queue devant les bureaux de vote, n'ont pas pu mettre leur bulletin dans l'urne.

    The Brexit Surrender

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic. 

    From enabling the rise of Donald Trump to hacking the telephone of a murdered British schoolgirl, Murdoch’s media empire has staked its success on stoking populist rage.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.

    Jeffrey Frankel, a professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a former member of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers, outlines the five criteria he uses to judge the efficacy of tax reform efforts.

    The Holy Grail of Genetic Engineering

    CRISPR-Cas – a gene-editing technique that is far more precise and efficient than any that has come before it – is poised to change the world. But ensuring that those changes are positive – helping to fight tumors and mosquito-borne illnesses, for example – will require scientists to apply the utmost caution.
