In his response to the Thompson Report, Zvobgo says council officials were not to blame for the city's woes. He accuses Thompson's team of what he calls its flawed investigative approach. Zvobgo is one of the 18 Harare city managers suspended in June following the presentation of a damning report on the city's affairs by a government-appointed team led by Harare businessman and former Public Service Commisstoner, Malcom Thompson. The team's investigations also led to the dismissal of the Harare City Council and the resignation of Executive Mayor Solomon Taweligwa. Zvobgo said the Thompson team approached its task with an assumption that council of ficials and councillors were to blame for the difficulties and problems the city was facing and did nothing else. "The team should have identified the city's problems and suggested solutions, not to investigate specific officials or specific instances of perceived irregularities," he says. The Thompson Report said of Zvobgo. "The Direr, tor of Works must hear bill responsibility for the shortemthlip exposed in the rr Port on the activities in his derailment.

The article contained allegations which are very misleading and have been repeatedly reported in the same newspapers for over a year. Wankie Colliery Company Limited is a public quoted company with its shares listed on the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange and also on the London and Johannesburg Stock Exchanges. The Government of Zimbabwe has a 39.89% shareholding in the company, leaving a balance of 60.11% shares held by the institutions and the general public. Government shares are not listed on any stock exchange. The Board of Wankie Colliery Company Limited appointed a committee on 23 June 1998 to investigate certain allegations of corruption and malpractices in the company which had been made. The Committee made up of Directors of the company, issued a report which was accepted and approved by the Board. The report of the Committee was discussed at the Annual General Meeting of shareholders of the company on 3 I July Shareholders were satisfied with the steps the Board had taken and the recommendations which were implemented following the investigations_ After the Annual General Meeting, the Board issued a statement to the public through the press concerning these allegations detailing the findings and the steps which had been taken to address the issues raised. The Ministry of Home Affairs requested through the Ministry of Mines, Environment and Tourism to carry out an independent investigation on the allegations of corruption. The CID Fraud Squad and National Economic Conduct Inspectorate (NEC!) moved into the company to investigate allegations of corruption. Management were subjected to lengthy investigations, giving full cooperation to both the CID and NECI officials. The results of these investigations which started in September 1998 have not been known to the Board of Wankie Colliery Company Limited up to now. The Board recently approved the unaudited interim results of the company for the year ending 31 December 1999 on 30 July 1999 which were published in The Herald and The Chronicle newspapers on Tuesday, 3 August The article published in both newspapers on I September 1999 stated, without reference to these results, that the Board had manipulated the financial results in order to give a favourable and incorrect assessment of the financial situation of the company to shareholders and the general public. The Board would like to assure the shareholders and lenders that there is no substance in what was reported by The Herald and The Chronicle newspapers. The Board stands by the accuracy of the unaudited results as published and circulated to the shareholders. lnspite of the problems experienced in collecting cash from major debtor's as reported in the interim report the company is not "in financial doldrums" and "nearly broke" or "close to bankruptcy" as reported.

Chiwewe said the document propose; that foreign ovmership of theme die in the country be between 20 and 25 percent only with the Masers being obliged to reveal theft financial capacity ham' embarking on any project He said "This way we Will protect our Journalists from being lured into companies that do not have a sound financial background. fn Zimbabwe we would be happy with a situation where foreign ownership is allowed but resnamed such that foreign in- Nestor, nay not own more than a stipulated amount of shares." Chiwewe aid the ministry had alised the maxi to take great care in determining the extent of foreign influence in editorial policies of various newspapers Sr the country On Press freedom, he said debate was now no longer on whether the media should be free but how re sponsibly the media should exercise this freedom, how far reporters were willing to accommodate and respect the rights of others to enable them to exercise their rights and freedom. Chiwewe said: "While media freedom is so important, it is essential in my view that certain information on national governance be kept confidential and exempt from being divulged in order fur government to ilmetion effectively "Our view having looked at other countries like the US, Germany and Norway is that as a matter of principle there should be mom in our Constitution for the provision of Pass freedom and outside the Constitution there should be legislation l0 deal with the issue of information" On access to information he said after careful scrutiny of policies in the UK, US.

On the issue of a media council. he said the ministry had recommended a statutory' media council with the need for advanced journalism courses at university level. He said the media environment In the country was characterised by natural suspicion between the government and the Press emanating from their perceptions that government Is always hiding certain information while the Press thrives on rumour-mongering and speculation. He said government was aware of machtnations of "the unrelenting and nostalgic Rhodes and their British and South African white sympathisers who want tosauch for andcreate cracks and weak points in the governance of this country and actually: in a manner sealer collaborators among Zhntobidens far purposes of undermining the Zimbabwe government sad its leadership".

7 Tqf DAILY NEWS 9 SEPTEMBER 1999 W O R L SA proposes tough law to combat rape CAPE TOWN - South Africa yesterday proposed tough new legatiatbm to address endemic rape in the country and improve on the current dismal rate of successibl prosecution of sexual offenders. The South African Law Commission handed a discussion paper crintalning a draft bill on seined offences to Justice Minlater Pennell Maduna who said he hoped legislation could conic to parliament next yeast "The atm of the draft bill Is to address mounting public con- VICTORY SALUTE... r _ cern over the unarceptably high level of rape and sexual offences in South Africa." Maduna told a news conference. South Africa has one of the highest incidents of rape in the world, with cases reported last year. Rare crisis groups say most cases go unreported and estimate two rapes occur every minute, with only one in a hundred resulting in a prosecution. The commission recommended that all types of sexual penetration should be censid ered unlawful when they occur under coercive circumstances including the application of force, threats, abuse of power or authority or the use of drugs. While current legislation puts the onus on rape victims to prove they did not consent to sex, the commission recommended that the accused should carry the burden of proof over consent. The draft law stales that sexual penetration of any child be- low the age of 12 should constitute rape, while a new crime of "child molestation" would apply to sex with children under 16. The commission recom mended that the law should allow for a husband to be convicted of raping his wife and said a separate offence of "per sistent sexual abuse of a child" should be introduced to deal with intra-familial cases. The commission also said the commercial sexual exploitation of children should be 'ambit,- 'led and special provisions be introduced for sexual offences against mentally disabled pea tile. In a separate discussion paper, the commission recantmended a change In the law to allow for compulsory 1-11V testing of arrested persons in sexual offence cases due to the mounting incidents of deliberate transmission of the Aids virus. Current law only provides for HIV testing with the informed consent of the person con- cerned and every person is entitled to privacy of their medical information.

In particular what must have hit them hard In the face as being extremely instructive Is the repeatedly-echoed displeasure voiced by people everywhere over the Executive arm of goyertunent as It is presently constituted - its size and make-up, the manifestly unlimited powers vested in the President, as well as the worrying impression the nation has gained that he is above the law In Chirumanzu, for example, the people suggested that the Presidential Powers (Temporary Measures) Act be abolished as it entrenched "draconian legislation" such as his power to declare a State of Emergency under which bass: human rights can be violated with impunity Elsewhere, alter also suggesting that the President should have limited powers "so that he doesn't become a dictator'. people have called for inclusion in the new constitution of a clause limiting to a maximum of two the terms any person will be aliened to serve as President and that it be clearly stipulated that Augment twa the power to remove from office a sitting Praddentlf he violates the constitution or commits a serious anal.

It is on the last suggestem that the ruling Zanu PF has dal feted completely with other interest groups and indivel,d, that have given submissions en the need to transform the cut rent vice-presidency and, in the proces.s. rein., up wah what 5, think is the bete proposal. While tile ruling imrty agrees V everyone else that the present set up where we enjoy the dubious uniqueness as the only country in the world that boasts two vice-presidents is untenable, it goes one step better than simply suggesting that one of the two posts be abolished. - The party has proposed that both posts of vice-president be abolished, to be replaced by one new post - that of prime minister We think it is an excellent idea, especially when they say he would be accountable to Parliament and as such, unlike the President. be "a person at whom mud can be thrown and who can betaken to task on any issue". Unfortunately; that is where our concurrence with Zanu PF on the matter ends. We differ on the finer details. Dar instance, the party says the prune minister would be appointed by the "Executive President" who will also have the power to appoint ministers. We beg to differ Ina number of aspects. Firstly, as in all normal democracies, apart from the rare event of polls producing a hung parliament, the leader of the party winning a majority of seats in parliamentary elections automatically becomes prime minister and his "appointment" by the head of state would merely he a formality This is what happens in, among other democracies, Britain, India. Israel and the Republic of Ireland. Secondly when we have a prime minister, the post of executive president would, ideally, have to be abolished and replaced with that of a simple, more dignified, ceremonial president with no executive powers, who does not dabble in party politics. It is the prime minister who, being the leader of the winning party will appoint a cabinet. It is also our considered opinion that the present process of choosing a president - by the popular vole - will have to go. A ceremonial president will have lobe chosen by Parliament, sitting m an electoral college, from a list of names of highly respected people from civil society - with no known party political leanings - submitted by the prime minister.

New constitution: what citizens ought to be asking themselves MOST people have welcomed the Constitutional Commission, for Zimbabwe certainly needs a new constitution. But the commission has not asked the nation what Ls to be the priority purpose of this new constitution. They should be asking: "What do you want the new constitution to achieve?" Instead, they ate seeking opinions on the details; these are important, but the experts can debate them, once the people have established its purpose. The citizens must answer the question on what they want the new constitution to achieve it is the single most vital function confronting them. The first thing to be slated to the Commission, clearly and in great numbers, is that the people want a new constitution to "develop a fully functioning democracy". This must he its purpose, for nothing else mat tees There should be at least two political parties that can alternate as the government. There should be a choice at each election between two parties that are each able, by their policies, their experience and the calibre eif their candidates, to form the government. The second vital issue is to enter the debate on "how the constitution can develop our democracy". There Ls only one way to establish political parties capable of governing. The constituency system of electing Members of Parliament in Zimbabwe has to be abandoned and the proportional representation method adopted in Its place. Namibia and South Africa have chosen the proportional representation method and they are the two newest constitutions in the world. In Rhodesia and in the new Zimbabwe, the constituency method failed the people badly. The constituency system of electing Members of Parliament in Zimbabwe has to be abandoned and the pro- portional representation method adopted in its place...

At Lancaster House, a group not Included in the official talks urged the nationalists, the Rhodesian Front (RF) and Britain to adopt proportional representation. But Britain has never handed over to a colony proportional representation, for the entrenched parties - Labour and Tory - do not want it at home. Along with Britain, no one else wanted proportional representation: sot 1..anu PF, PF Zaps, or the RE Fortunately, for Namibia and South Africa, Britain was not at their constitutional discussions and they chose the modern system, used today In most successful countries.

The vote was entirely tribal; the result was a dividing line from Mashonaland West, through the Midlands, to Masvingo and Mann:eland; north of this line all the seats went to Zanu PF; south of the line, the vote was solid PF Zapu. In simple terms, Shona and Ndebele. Tribal. What a disaster! The much larger Shona group swept the seats in Parliament. The tribal conflict boiled over into the Matabeleland and Midlands atrocities: Zanu PF swallowed PF Zapu. We had a one-party state. By the second general election, voters knew they could not change anything and apathy set in, and the parties retreated to their tribal bases. The tribal party in the south, having won some 20 percent of the votes in the Shona north, in fact, had a zero insult - not one seat from the Shona areas.

By fakaitei Bole Agriculture Reporter ZIMBABWEAN scientists have criticised government representatives who sign international trade agreements without consulting other parties involved. The scientists claimed that government representatives. who are mostly ministers, had a tendency to sign trade agreements they were not familiar with, resulting in them agreeing to issues that the country was against. The scientists were attending a two-day workshop on the im pact of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) technologyon agriculture and human health in Kadoma. last week. Zimbabwe, as a result of poor consultation, is a signatory to the World Trade Organisations (WTO) regulation, Article 27, which protects multi-nationals seeking to intnxince new technologies, while farmers have no say The country is hoping to slip against the Article 27 of the VITO regulations in November, this year. in Seattle, United States of America, to give farmers rights to their produce The Biosafety Board chairman, Dr Robbie Mupawose, urged government to involve the private sector before any decisions were made on new technologies or any trade agreements. "It has happened many times that people go out of the country as Zimbabwe representatives and sign some issues with- Budget deficit in 10-fold rise out consulting others back home. On government level, they go mid sign scientific issues without consulting the scientists themselves" Dr Mupawose said. lie said the issue of GMOs needed much consultation as it was a complex subject and had raised eyebrows in other countries that had adopted It. The scientists agreed to study the technology first before its implementation in Zimbabwe. The scientists, which included some from government departments and the private sector, have said that they would not adopt the Terminator Technology; which is defined as the bad part of the GMO technology that sterilises seed and makes it not to germinate if replanted, Mazda says tariff drop won't affect car assembly lines Business Reporter WILLOWVALE Mazda Motor Industries IWMMI) says the recent tariff changes, announced by government. will not affect the vehicles locally-assembled, because kits are exempt from duty The chief executive officer of WMMI, Dave Gibson said: "The recent changes in tariffs do not have any impact on the vehicles locally-assembled, as the kits are currently exempt from duty We expect more intense competition as the imported completely-built units (CBU) will land at slightly cheaper prices due to the duty reduction." The Department of Customs and Excise recently reduced the tariff rates payable on en ported vehicles of all classes, by different percentages. The director of the department, Range Mumaradzi, said buses which used to attract 50 percent duty had been reduced to 30 percent. Luxury motor vehicles such as Pajero. BMWs and Landcruisers, which used to be 100 Percent. would be charged 85 percent. Other vehicles would attract 65 percent duty from 90 percent "We expect our market-share against CBU Imports to improve because of the intensive new model introduction programme, not only for Mazda vehicles, but also the new range of Nissan Pick Ups and Bard products.

20 20 WASHINGTON - The International Monetary Fund will revalue some ef Its gold to hind debt relief thereby avoiding open-market gold sales, a politically difficult proposition that spooked gold markets, documents posted on the Internet revealed yesterday An agenda for the fund's up coming annual meeting, to take place later this month, revealed that It would revalue 10 million ounces of its 103 million ounce gold stockpile to market values, yielding "11,1 bidbr (about $41, lion) in net cash value". "This proposal replaces the previously agreed sale of a maximum 10 million ounces from the IMP's gold reserves," according to a draft agenda. copy of which was available an the Dutch finance iatry's Web site. The IMF had originally planned to sell the gold to finance its obligations under the Highly Indebted Poor Countries Initiative, which aims to reduce the debts of 41 of the world's poorest nations. The sales were also pegged to fund its Enhanced Structural Adjustment Facility law-interest loan programme. The proposal had received strong political opposition from US lawmakers and others who had claimed openmarket gold sales would harm poor gold-producing countries and hurt gold prices. The new plan should calm gold markets which were nervous about the effect on prices train a gold sale from the world's second largest holder of bullion. The 134Fs open-market sales plan suffered a blow when gold hit a 20-year low in July after the Bank of England sold 25 tonnes of gold as part of its plan to cut its reserves by 415 tonnes. The document said the new proposal has two advantages over the previous plan - It would not disturb gold markets and was politically achievable. It said the proposal was still being discussed. The documents released on the Internet provided few details on the new plan but sources said the latest plan had already been approved by the Group of Seven nations. Under the plan. countries which owe the IMF money from past loans, such as Mexico, would buy IMP gold the day before loan payments are due and then repay the instalment the next day with the same gold, sources familiar with the scheme said. The plan raises cash for the IMP because the fund values the gold on its balance sheet at about USS46 an ounce. Since gold is actually worth about USS255 an ounce, the transaction would net the IMF profits of about USS209 an ounce, or about USW.] billion. After selling the gold, the fund would return USgtri per ounce back to its General Resource Account and then transfer the 12,1 billion in profits to a trust fund. The trust would invest the $2,1 bil- BUSINESS IMF to revalue gold and High-performin g stop open-market sales SAID '99 BUSINESS EXHIBITION 3-6 OCTOBER 1999 IN VICTORIA FALLS.

The new plan will likely ale pease the gold industry and lawmakers from US geld Producing states since the ISIF's gold would probably never leave its vaults. But the plan would require approval from the US Congress since gold sales are still involved. The debt relief plan, which builds on an earlier framework. was agreed by the G7 this summer in Cologne. The INIFs obligation under the expanded Highly Indebted Poor Countries Initialise debt relief plan is USg2,3 billion. The $21 billion in profits from the gold revaluation plan would generate profits over time which would allow the IMP to fund both its IOPC obligations and make up the funding shortfall in its Esaf loan programme, sources said. The overall HIPC plan agreed to m Cologne calls for debt relief of UStr3.7 billion. Reuter Companies that would like to expose or export their products are urged to take advantage of this event.
