    Zimbabwe Elections: Mugabe Vs the World

    in News

    Zimbabwe has just gone through another election, surprisingly one would think President Robert Mugabe was standing or competing against the whole world rather than his fellow national presidential candidates. It is the expectation and outcome of this election that intrigues every citizen of the world, why so much hatred for Mugabe? Shouldn’t we all just accept and respect that Zimbabwe has it’s own electoral commission and that Mugabe too does have supporters?
    Examining electoral rules in Europe, the United States and within neighbouring South Africa, you cannot find any similarities. The American Supreme court overturned the long standing 1965 voting rights act rendering it no longer relevant and some states are bent on eliminating early voting, Britain doesn’t allow for campaign advertising in it’s media, the South Africa public doesn’t directly vote for presidential candidates. With all these varying electoral rules prevailing in sovereign nations, why is the whole world so eager to seeing Mugabe out of power?
    Is that what really the people of Zimbabwe aspire for or is it one of those western propaganda preferring a particular candidate to the old guard Mugabe who has defied any western influence in his style of rule or governance?  The United States through it’s Secretary of State, senator John Kerry  issued a press statement on the election result

    in Women

    Headlines across the world blast that former Illinois Congressman Mel Reynolds has been arrested in Zimbabwe on ography charges, and those in Illinois who remember the sordid story surrounding Mel Reynolds'  resignation from Congress respond with, "Oh, no! Not again!" But journalist and political insider Nate Clay gives an untold story behind the headlines, one that has more to do with an intense battle over proposed sanctions against the country of Zimbabwe. Who are the real players behind the scenes and who are the political enemies Mel Reynolds may have made that could have led to his being targeted for retaliation? Is he really guilty of criminal acts or are unseen hands working to use his past weaknesses to destroy his credibility abroad? Whether local, national or international politics, the bottom line is always about money. Who is it that's trying to get paid?

    The Ndustry Presents : "The Virgin Cure Movie," Writer and Director, Nyasha Vera

    in Entertainment

    THIS WEEK ON THE NDUSTRY, HOSTS AKIA & NICOLE HOST, INTERNATIONAL LEADER, ADVOCATE AND FILMMAKER, NYASHA VERA! 


    Nyasha Vera is a Zambian born writer and producer of the Virgin Cure Movie. An alumnus of the George Washington University School of Media and Public Affairs, she has over six years of documentary and independent film experience. She has recently begun her Virgin Cure Movie lecture tour in Great Britain at Manchester Metropolitan University and future engagements are currently being set in both the United States and Europe.


    Her childhood was spent in Zambia and Zimbabwe, and her experiences there were the main inspiration for this film. An advocate for both gender equality issues and victims of HIV/AIDS, she has spent the past six years bringing these issues to the mainstream and her film project to fruition. She has worked hand in hand with HIV/AIDS organizations in Africa and the United States, and looks forward to raising awareness to a worldwide audience regarding rape, HIV/AIDS and its devastating aftermath.


    The Virgin Cure Movie features the lives of four broken, young girls who share a common link--they are all victims of child rape in South Africa. An atrocity and common practice in this area, these rapes are thought to be associated with the “virgin cure” myth. They share their painful stories in hopes of preserving the purity and health of other infants and children, in their region and around the world. 


    JOIN US FOR THE INTIMATE INTERVIEW WITH NYASHA.  LISTEN VIA MOBILE/LAN AT 718-766-4964 OR ONLINE AT: WWW.WELCOMETOTHENDUSTRY.COM.

    in Lifestyle

    Kristina Tester is a 2014 graduate of Harvard University, with degrees in African and Global Health.  She is the founder and executive director of So Others May Learn, a non-profit organization based in Zimbabwe and Uganda that is dedicated to providing bright and motivated students in sub-Saharan Africa with the opportunity to further their educations through comprehensive scholarships that support them through their four years of  secondary school. The scholarships cover tuition, room and board, transportation, uniforms, and supplies for qualified students who would otherwise never have the opportunity to further their dreams.

Her senior thesis, titled “Increasing the Effectiveness of Healthcare Delivery to Rural Areas: A Case Study of Village Health Teams and Childhood Malnutrition in Rukungiri District, Uganda”, was awarded the Harvard Hoopes Prize for outstanding research and scholarly work, and she was the recipient of the Phillipe Wamba Prize for highest achievement in her Division. Kristina is planning to begin medical school in the fall of 2016 and hopes to combine her medical degree with a Masters in Public Health. She is committed to continuing her efforts to provide education and medical services to underserved communities at home and abroad.

    Light upon Light

    in Religion

    As-Salaam 'alaikum. Welcome to a night of powerful prayer for our dear country Nigeria, the Muslim Ummah, especially Muslim sisters and the entire human race. May we all be protected from all dangers threatening our existence.


    As for the situation in Nig., this is worth reading. The writer is unknown. How did the giant of Africa descend this low in the minds of those who used to respect her so! Never in the history of Nigeria, not even during military rule has our esteem, our pride, as a nation taken such a bashing!: "I have carried out a research about Jonathan's popularity and credibility among world leaders, whose neutrality is unquestionable. Here are some of their views: "Jonathan is running a government that is supervising the syphoning of Nigeria’s resources"-Senator Hilary Clinton "Jonathan’s government is practically not existing and therefore, America should just help Nigerians"-US senator John Maccain. "I do not think the Nigerian president is on the right track. Why would he and his party carry out this massive campaign in Ghana when we all know that their country do not vote online? It is misplaced, if you ask me."-Ghana's President. "I would rather commit suicide than ask the international community to help safeguard my country against militias, our country has a strong army to do the job unlike Nigeria"-Cameroon President “I have never called the United Nations to guard us. Me, Yoweri Museveni to say that I have failed to protect my people and I call on the UN: I would rather hang myself-Uganda president. “It would be a vote of no confidence in our country and citizens if we cannot guarantee our security? What kind of persons would we be?”-Senegal President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe said, "Nigeria was so corrupt that you have to bribe a pilot before he could fly his passenger plane at Nigeria’s airport".
