"They are a crazy gang on a mission to spread falsehoods about their mother country. Everything is normal in Zimbabwe, and anyone who thinks otherwise should have his head examined."

From The Daily News, 8 September


Zimbabweans seek US shelter

By Farai Mutsaka, Chief Reporter


The United States’ State Department is considering an application by Zimbabweans living in the US for Temporary Protection Status, which would grant illegal immigrants immunity from deportation until Zimbabwe’s political and economic crisis is resolved, the Daily News has established. The Association of Zimbabweans Based Abroad (AZBA), which was formed last month, wrote to the US State Department in August, indicating that it had become unsafe for Zimbabweans living abroad to return home. US Senator Raphael Feingold has also written to the US State Department endorsing AZBA’s request. "The association is requesting the US government to grant Temporary Protection Status to Zimbabweans who are at risk of experiencing severe hardship if forcibly returned to their country," a document sent to the State Department reads in part. "It is no secret that the current political climate is unsafe for many Zimbabweans living abroad," the document adds.


In his letter to US Secretary for Homeland Security Tom Ridge, Feingold said the political and economic conditions in Zimbabwe made it imperative for the US to grant the temporary protection status. The US senator said: "Presently, extraordinary conditions exist that prevent Zimbabweans from returning home in safety as required by the Temporary Protection Status statute. In addition, Zimbabwe cannot feed its population. Many of the Zimbabweans that have resisted Mugabe’s tyranny now reside in the United States and we should consider providing protection status for them." Feingold successfully campaigned in 2000 for the Zimbabwe Democracy and Economic Recovery Act, under which President Robert Mugabe and his government were slapped with travel and economic sanctions. In response to AZBA’s appeal, Scott Busby, the director of policy and resource planning in the State Department, last month assured AZBA that the US government was considering the petition. "The Department of State continues to monitor the conditions in Zimbabwe to determine whether they meet the specific statutory requirements for Temporary Protection Status. I can assure you that we will take your concerns into consideration," he wrote in a letter addressed to AZBA president Dumaphi Mema.


Temporary Protection Status may be granted if the US Attorney General finds that a foreign state is in the grip of ongoing armed conflict and that due to such conflict, "the return of aliens who are nationals of that state to that state, or part of that state, would pose a serious threat to their personal safety". While noting that no armed conflict exists in Zimbabwe, AZBA, however, noted that there exists a "prolonged state of open and hostile disharmony". The group said this "clash or conflict is characterised by the use of brutal, violent force by the government of Zimbabwe against the civilian population and opponents of the Mugabe regime". The government has denied such charges in the past. Temporary Protection Status can also be granted to a country that has experienced earthquakes, floods, drought, epidemics or other environmental disasters, resulting in the disruption of living conditions. AZBA notes that Zimbabwe has experienced floods and drought in the past five years and is in the grip of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Countries that have been granted Temporary Protection Status (TPS) in the past include Angola, Mozambique, Kosovo, Serbia and LIberia.


AZBA executive director Ralph Black told the Daily News yesterday that granting of the TPS would provide relief to many Zimbabwean illegal immigrants residing in the US. About 45 000 Zimbabweans are estimated to be living in the US. He said: "Many Zimbabweans here are desperate because if they are caught by the State Department, they will be deported. But if this status is granted, then it will take away the anxiety of being caught and they will also be authorised to work and complete their studies while fending for their families back home. We have also not been able to adequately lobby the US government on Zimbabwe because most people are afraid of coming out in the open because their papers are not in order." Movement for Democratic Change shadow minister for foreign affairs Moses Mzila-Ndlovu said the Zimbabweans’ appeal was justified. "These people are directly contributing to the economy because of the foreign currency that they send home. It would be unreasonable for the US government to repatriate them back home to face the kind of poverty we are facing right now. It is imperative that the US government grants Zimbabwe such status." But ZANU PF secretary for external affairs Didymus Mutasa said Zimbabweans abroad were out to spread lies about the conditions at home. He said: "They are a crazy gang on a mission to spread falsehoods about their mother country. Everything is normal in Zimbabwe, and anyone who thinks otherwise should have his head examined. They should not use silly excuses to stay in the US."

More Good News From Zim



Here are some of the companies that are operating illegally in Zim. on confiscated Farms. It has been stated that not a single Safari Company is hunting legally on any private farm. The top ten Safari Companies in Zim are all owned, either openly or covertly by Zanu Party hacks.

When Booking Agents and hunters look to make a good deal in Zim they are stealing from the rightful owners and from all of the world. I know some of the Booking Agents on this forum are aware of this and act responsibly but some hide their heads in the sand and pretend it is alright.

Hunters going to Zim are aiding and abetting this rape. All deals and hunts in Zim are suspect at this time and I think we have a responsibility to act honorably..

What do you guys think?

I will post reports from other regions as they become available.

INFORMATION ABOUT ILLEGAL HUNTING
AND POACHING.

Information Contained in this Document:
1. Zimbabwe hunting report including support information
2. Relevant articles from newspaper about the situation in Zimbabwe.

THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS CURRENTLY BEING COLLECTED AND WILL BE FORWARDED.
· Report from Zimbabwe Wildlife Society
· Report from SPCA
· Report from the Lowveld – adjacent to Gonarezhou National Park (part of the beleaguered Transfrontier National Park – a joint project between South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe.)
· A selection of zanu pf propaganda reports
· Extensive photographic evidence

THE INFORMATION CONTAINED BELOW HAS BEEN VERIFIED TO THE BEST OF OUR ABILITY UNDER DIFFICULT AND SOMETIMES CONFUSING CIRCUMSTANCES.
WE WELCOME ANY QUERIES.

ZIMBABWE HUNTING REPORT

AUGUST 2003

Zimbabwe once proudly stood as a premiere tourist destination for the international photographic and hunting communities. It was renowned for its strong policies on wildlife and environmental management and was also a popular venue for academics and researchers.

Zimbabwe once boasted several ground breaking projects in sustainable development. However, the government sponsored chaos has virtually destroyed the fragile balance between man and animal. The impoverished rural population living in and around designated conservation areas could have been well on the way to a secure and happy future through smart partnerships with the previous land owners and projects such as Campfire. Now the environment is ravaged and the people are starving.

Due to the present regime’s disastrous land reform programme, poaching and illegal hunting on farms, which were seized from their rightful owners, have become rife. Only a handful of the legal property owners remain. The rest have been evicted by ruling party henchmen. There is no law and order. Poaching and uncontrolled hunting is everywhere.

One such area that has been affected with dire consequence is the Gwaai Valley Conservancy, in the west of the country. This Conservancy was established 1995/6 and was strictly controlled by the regulatory body, the Intensive Conservation Authority (ICA). This watchdog body had the full support and was accredited by numerous international conservation organizations.

In the past, at the start of each hunting season, individual members of the Conservancy had to submit their requests for hunting quotas to the ICA, who then rationalized the information to ensure the Conservancy was not “over hunted”. The applications were then passed on to the National Parks and Wildlife Management (NPWM).

The Gwaai Valley Conservancy once stood as an outstanding example of sustainable development in a wildlife area, with prolific game and huge ecotourism potential. Today, not one of the Conservancy members remains in the Gwaai. Its game has been reduced to an estimated 20% of its previous glory and the people left there are all on the verge of starvation.

Early in July 2003, all farmers in this area, which borders Hwange National Park, were evicted. The Conservancy has now fallen prey to unscrupulous hunting/safari operators from neighbouring South Africa and Botswana. Other areas affected are Bubiana Conservancy, Matetsi and West Nicholson. Few, if any, of these illegal hunters have been registered by the Zimbabwe Ministry of Environment and Tourism and do not hold accreditation with the Zimbabwe Association of Tourism and Safari Operators. In addition, these hunters are working against legislation that declares that in Zimbabwe operators should either own or hold a lease on a suitable concession of land with accompanying animal quota. Some animals also require a Conference for International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) permit, such as crocodile, leopard and cheetah.

Rates charged by the settlers are far below the going rate and not one cent generated by these illegal hunts is coming back into Zimbabwe. Evidence for this theft is that illegal operators do not adhere to the legislation that requires the foreign currency generated be deposited with the Reserve Bank with the necessary documentation.

Not only is the country losing the precious foreign currency, but in the past the legal property owners in the conservancy would also put a percentage of the money generated from hunting back into improvements, building up stock and wildlife management. This is obviously not being done by the illegal occupants.

In just three short years, the country’s rich wildlife reserves have been decimated. Illegal hunting practices are now rife. If something is not done NOW, Zimbabwe will be turned into yet another arid desert. Generations will gasp in disbelief when shown photographs of its ruined ecosystem. The cost to Zimbabwe’s heritage in financial and environmental terms is immeasurable.


We must act now before it is too late.

Vehicle numbers
These vehicles were involved in the eviction of the farmers and their workers

765-949C – Zanu PF
777 475F – Zanu PF
779 269F – Zanu PF
781 098T – Zanu PF
779 064H – Zanu PF


Weapons
Two shotguns and a rifle were stolen from Lions Den on the night of one farm eviction. The following day the police came and took all the weapons and ammunition from this property. No ZRP receipt was given. They also searched the offices.

An AK47 and two pistols were seen on War Veterans, the night of the evictions from Lions Den.

Staff
On Lions Den the staff were evicted from their homes on 21 June 2003 at 18h30 and made to stand out in the cold (our coldest and wet winter in 30 years) till 1am. They were then loaded on vehicles and dumped on the side of a road.. They were eventually found at 3am by the farmer and moved to safety and shelter.

Homesteads
Homesteads were ransacked and striped of fixtures and fittings. One homestead has not been touched and it is believed that Ruben Nklanga wants this home.


An example of how one of the farms in the conservancy
managed their game prior to eviction.

Year 2000 – size of property 20 000 acres

Buffalo 1200 Wildebeeste 60
Giraffe 3 Zebra 60
Hippo 6 Kudu 40
Impala 90 Reedbuck 6
Eland 1500 Tssessebe 8 – protected
Sable 90 Warthogs 30
Hyena 20 Elephant 150
Lion 12 – nomadic Leopard male 4 – territorial
Wilddog 8 Leopard f/male 8
Baboons 120

Hunting quota for the year submitted to relevant authorities.
Buffalo 9 Lion 1 Wildebeeste 4
Sable 2 Elephant 2 Hyena 1
Kudu 4 Impala 6 Baboon 5
Eland 2 Zebra 4 Duiker 4
Leopard 2 Jackal 2 Steenbok 4

They developed 10 waterpoints, 9 seasonal dams and 2 annual dams.
To date there is no water being pumped to the waterpoints.

When the proprietor of the above farm was recently evicted, approximately 20% of game was left. Loss of game occurred through illegal hunting and poaching. Now that no water is being supplied this game will have moved.

On a neighbouring property nine buffalo were shot in a two week period. This is a small portion of the hunting season which lasts for approximately seven months.
