  • Zimbabwe Bans All Lithium Exports

    01/04/2023 7:05:40 PM PST · by nickcarraway · 37 replies
    Zimbabwe has banned all lithium exports after the government said it was losing 1.7 billion euros from exporting it as a raw mineral and not processing it into batteries in-country. Lithium is so valuable as a component of electronic batteries - mostly for cars mobile phones and computers - that it’s known as “white gold.” The price has gone up by 1,100 percent in the past two years alone. Zimbabwe has the largest amount of the mineral in Africa and has enough of it to supply a fifth of the world’s needs, the government says. Whilst it’s on track to...
  • Expropriation- Farmland to be Seized Without Compensation in South

    10/16/2022 7:18:45 AM PDT · by rktman · 42 replies ^ | 10/13/2022 | Faye Higbee
    In the US Constitution, there is a clause that prevents the government from taking your property without just compensation (Article 5). In recent years that has been called into question in various court cases. But still, in America, the government must pay you for taking your real property — at least they are supposed to. That is not the case in South Africa, where a new law was passed that demands land owners give up their land for seizure by the government. It is called the Expropriation Bill. The new bill awaits approval from the National Council of Provinces, and...

    The British government is funding projects pushing Africans to farm and consume insects, including school-age children, in randomized trials, to assess their effects. The United Kingdom Research and Innovation (UKRI) – a subsidiary of the country’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy – is responsible for backing the projects taking place in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Zimbabwe. With a roughly $320,000 grant from the aid office, researchers in Zimbabwe will be experimenting with using mopane worms in porridge served to children in schools. Poor children aged seven to 11 in the towns of Gwanda and Harare...

    Zimbabwe's central bank will start selling gold coins later this month to try and tame inflation by providing a store of value to the country's plunging currency and giving the population an alternative to the U.S. dollar. The one troy ounce 22-carat gold coin will be called 'Mosi-Oa-Tunya' and will be available starting July 25. The name means "Smoke that Thunders," referencing Victoria falls. "Each coin will have a serial number," Zimbabwe's central bank said in a press release. "Upon purchase, the buyer shall take physical possession of the coin and be issued with a Bearer Ownership Certificate. The buyer...

    Hungary, along with other Eastern European countries including Poland, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic, have all but banned Muslim immigration, despite being harassed by EU leaders because of it. Hungary refuses to abide by the quotas given to them by the EU for accepting Muslim invaders posing as asylum seekers, and as a result the EU is threatening them with sanctions and fines. PART 1 Video In this video, you can see the brutal and grotesque, far-left media bias against what they call “racist” Western Europeans who abandon their native land because of how mass Muslim immigration has changed it…for...
  • ARIEL PHENOMENON DOCUMENTARY: A JOURNEY WORTH TAKING (famous 1994 mass UFO sighting by school children in Zimbabwe)

    The Debrief ^ | MAY 20, 2022 | CHRISTOPHER PLAIN
    [In] “Ariel Phenomenon,” director Randall Nickerson looks at one of the most famous cases of the second type involving both craft and occupants: the 1994 mass sighting at the Ariel School in Zimbabwe, Africa. It is a portrayal of a potentially “alien” event, told from a decidedly human angle, including the powerful feelings such an event often leaves behind in those touched by the experience. *snip* Nickerson spends a significant amount of the film’s 100+ minute run time exploring the negative side of the Ariel School experience for many of the witnesses, particularly feelings of trauma. This includes students who...

    POACHERS have killed a black rhino in Matobo district in Matabeleland South, police said. A carcass of a black rhino with its horns missing was found in the Makhothama Resettlement area which borders the Matopo National Park on February 7. “The carcass was scanned with a metal detector leading to the recovery of two wildlife sensors and a bullet in the animal’s forehead,” national police spokesman assistant commissioner Paul Nyathi said. The rhino horn is one of the most expensive commodities in the world by weight, fetching tens of thousands of dollars per kilogramme. Demand is mainly from Asia where...

    PART 2 OF 3. The Hunter Biden Files Hunter Biden and his business partners were involved in discussions about possible deals in dozens of foreign countries, often corrupt backwaters, at times invoking official channels like ambassadors, emails reviewed by The Daily Wire show. While most attention has focused on Ukraine, where a gas company paid the now-president’s son tens of thousands of dollars a month while he was in deep crack addiction, and China, Hunter and his partners at a consultancy called Rosemont Seneca were eager to do business in a vast array of other places.

    Slovenia's regulation forbidding people without 'COVID certificates' from pumping fuel shows governments are getting increasingly creative in their coercion. It’s hard to know what’s real and what’s fake on the internet these days. So when I stumbled on a Twitter post that claimed automobile drivers in Slovenia were forbidden from pumping gas without a COVID certificate, I was skeptical. All the tweets I found were screenshots of a single story published by TV N1 Zagreb, a news partner of CNN. Attempts to find information of this alleged regulation on the Slovenian government’s website didn’t go well (I don’t read Slovenian!),...

    HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) — At a busy market in a poor township outside Harare this week, Nyasha Ndou kept his mask in his pocket, as hundreds of other people, mostly unmasked, jostled to buy and sell fruit and vegetables displayed on wooden tables and plastic sheets. As in much of Zimbabwe, here the coronavirus is quickly being relegated to the past, as political rallies, concerts and home gatherings have returned. “COVID-19 is gone, when did you last hear of anyone who has died of COVID-19?” Ndou said. “The mask is to protect my pocket,” he said. “The police demand bribes...

    There’s something strange happening in Africa which, according to the Associated Press, has scientists “mystified.” The curious situation is particularly prevalent in Zimbabwe. It’s a nation with a population of 14.8 million people and a vaccination rate of less than 6%, a fact that the World Health Organization lectures us about endlessly. And yet in the past week, they recorded a total of 33 COVID deaths. How is this possible? The AP interviewed a number of people who were shopping in a township outside Harare, almost none of whom were wearing masks.

    A headline on Newsweek’s web site grabbed my attention in early May: “Wokeness Has Come for Adoption. It’s the Children Who Will Suffer.” This is a subject I know well: My wife and I have fostered three child refugees—from Zimbabwe, Guatemala, and Honduras respectively. These foster children are functionally adopted, and have become full-fledged members of our family. The article noted that a vice-president at Bethany Christian Services, the largest Christian adoption agency in the country, had told a reporter that allowing white families to adopt black children from the foster care system “can cause a lot of harm to...

The two had walked about 40 meters from where they had parked their car when they encountered the elephants, with one of them charging at them, Farawo said. The son managed to escape and reach the car while Walsh could not outrun the elephant which trampled him to death.

    An ICU specialist at a South African teaching hospital has hit back strongly at claims made by a respected pulmonologist that ivermectin is of no use in treating Covid-19. Prof Nathi Mdladla, head of the ICU at Dr George Mukhari Academic Hospital and Sefako Makgatho University, said the claims made by Dr Emmanuel Taban that the drug offered little benefit and had contributed to liver failure in a number of patients were “scaremongering at its worst”. “I have treated more than 200 Covid-19 outpatients including relatives and friends and their contacts,” Mdladla said in a rebuttal sent to TimesLIVE. “Between...

    Zimbabwe is officially allowing the use of Ivermectin to treat Covid-19, as the third wave of infections sets in. Preliminary research findings in the UK from a small pilot study on the drug, used to treat parasite infections, show that giving it early to Covid-19 patients could reduce viral load levels. Through a government notice, the Medicines Control Authority of Zimbabwe (MCAZ) said: “The secretary for health and child care has authorised the MCAZ to authorise the importation and use of ivermectin for Covid-19. MCAZ will issue bulk section 75 approval for importation of human formulations of ivermectin manufactured by...

    Surgeons in South Africa are preparing to reconstruct the face of Nine-year-old Rodwell Khomazana who was mauled by a hyena during a night time church service in Zimbabwe. Doctors in one of the city's main public hospitals stabilised his condition, but lacked the resources to fully repair the boy's ravaged face. His desperate mother reached out to medics in neighbouring South Africa, who agreed to operate Khomazana for free in a private Johannesburg clinic. Nine-year-old Rodwell Khomazana lost his nose, left eye, most of his upper lip, parts of his forehead and other parts of his face when the animal...
