    Robert Mugabe became the Prime Minister of Zimbabwe when it gained independence from Britain in 1980. Formaly known as Rhodesia, Mugabe waged a war against the then White Supremist racist Prime Minister Ian Smith who was protected by the Thatcher Government, who said they could not fight their kith and kin.
    Mugabe believed the land belong to the Indigenous Blacks. 90% 0f the land was  owned by the 4% of the white population
    Of course the West became annoyed and imposed strict restictions on the country.

    Enlightened 30: Death the Show welcomes MJ Dickson

    in Paranormal



    Born in Zimbabwe and raised in South Africa, I relocated to the UK in 2010 on an amazing journey of spirituality and science. My mother is a Sensitive; I wouldn’t go as far as saying a Medium as she blocked her abilities out of fear. Even though she raised us to be very aware that our loved ones were “Always close by”, she would predict deaths in the family as well as other experiences and yet still somewhat sheltered me from it. 

    My father was a military man and taught me that there was a logical explanation for everything although he never questioned my mothers “Abilities”. I had many strange paranormal experiences growing up; little did I know that my mother’s abilities had been passed down. It wasn’t until my mid twenties that MY abilities began to develop; it was at this time that I began questioning everything. I needed answers. What made me different from everyone else? Why did I have these abilities? How did they work? I am an extremely curious person so once I took part in my first investigation I was hooked. I had to know more. I have been investigating the paranormal for five years now and during this time I have experienced numerous paranormal events as well as been able to document these events using various pieces of equipment and cameras.

It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!

    A Call to Lightwarriors: Let’s Unite to Transcend All Darkness

    in Spirituality

    Join me, Michelle Manders, and my co-host, Faith Parent Hendrickson, as we continue our discussion about the very important topic of caring for our physical body, how we present ourselves, self-love, and self-worth.

    This ties in with the 4-part series of the Middle East projects I'm leading, and in this show, I will also provide an overview of the Middle East Phase 2 Project just ending, and present Phase 3 which includes Zimbabwe:  It is evident beyond measure that all of us have a level of responsibility toward Mother Earth and raising the vibration of our planet. Thus there is no longer any level of denial left that we are not valuable and an intrinsic part of the grand plan unfolding. We, as enlightened souls, must honour our commitments and take our service duty very seriously; therefore, we must live this now! 

    I am reaching out to all Lightwarriors who feel the quickening and who are deeply committed to supporting Mother Earth as we transcend all darkness together!

    (The first information to come through regarding Phase 3 will be channeled on Nov 25, and the activation week for this will be April 1 - 7, 2016. If you wish to participate, you'll be able to access these events live by clicking on the following link: https://v1.bookwhen.com/palaceofpeace. Bookmark this link and return to check for the dates later in November.)

    Join Faith and I as we discuss the incredible energies in store for us and what this means for you!  www.palaceofpeace.net and www.faithparent.net

    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

    A Global Effort To Ban Canned Hunting

    in Environment

    Recently, a German multi-millionaire named Rainer Schorr ignited a global outrage when he paid $60,000 to kill Africa's biggest elephant. He later posed with his 'trophy' without any remorse for his actions. This was merely a few short weeks after American dentist, Walter Palmer shelled out $50,000 to shoot and kill Cecil the lion. Cecil was beloved by tourists and locals in Zimbabwe. Palmer also showed no remorse as he posed with the once majestic lion. 

    Although the global community was outraged, their actions remain perfectly legal. For many years, groups like LionAid and White Lion Trust, as well as countless others have been advocating for the protection of big cats and other wildlife. educating the world about the dwindling global lion population, they are still not a protected species. In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer talks to Stephen Travis, President of ProtectingAfricanLions.org about new efforts to globally ban canned hunting. Stay tuned.

    Meet the Michael Stanley Mystery Duo on a special Second Sunday Crime Podcast!

    in Books

    Michael Stanley is the writing team of Michael Sears and Stanley Trollip.

    Both are retired professors who have worked in academia and business. Sears is a mathematician, specializing in geological remote sensing. Trollip is an educational psychologist, specializing in the application of computers to teaching and learning, and a pilot. They were both born in South Africa.

    They have been on a number of flying safaris to Botswana and Zimbabwe, where it was always exciting to buzz a dirt airstrip to shoo the elephants off. They have had many adventures on these trips including tracking lions at night, fighting bush fires on the Savuti plains in northern Botswana, being charged by an elephant, and having their plane’s door pop open over the Kalahari, scattering navigation maps over the desert. These trips have fed their love both for the bush, and for Botswana.

    It was on one of these trips that the idea surfaced for a novel set in Botswana with their now famous Detective Kubu. And on October 27th their fifth novel, A DEATH IN THE FAMILY will be released. Here's the first line:

    'There's no easy way to say this, Kubu. Your father's dead. I'm afraid he's been murdered.'. 

    WIth an opening like that, it only makes sense to have them both guest on Second Sunday Crime. This is a special edition of the show. Please tune in and get to know two very talented and wryly humorous authors who are making the continent of Africa a less mysterious place for all of us.
