Dear friend of the FMF
This week’s feature article, written by Rejoice Ngwenya, describes the current state of Zimbabwe and reflects on how the country lost its freedom despite winning independence. From corruption to cronyism to state capture, Rejoice provides examples of the real consequences of Robert Mugabe’s statist political perspective. Despite having attained independence, Zimbabwe is suffering from a lack of freedom. Africans have learned to their cost that independence does not necessarily result in freedom.

Radical Economic Transformation (RET)
RET can only be achieved if we break from the economic mentality which has governed this country since colonial times – paternal statism – and adopt the only alternative which has been shown to deliver a better standard of living for all anywhere in the world – the free market system. Ahead of the ANC’s national policy conference earlier this month, FMF proposed the policy alternatives detailed in this media release.

FEATURE article  

Mugabe, thanks for independence – ShowMeMyFreedom – REJOICE NGWENYA

Thanks to much-celebrated African nationalists, I am politically independent but in desperate need of freedom. Some would argue that, despite glaring income and standard of living disparities, those living in South Africa, with its world class infrastructure and liberal constitution, are better off than other Africans. If freedom was that simple, I would be one hell of a happy Zimbabwean. As it stands, I am at a loss as to what extent South Africans are ‘free to choose’, given the vice-grip that the ANC ruling party has on the country’s political system and stuck with a populist president burdened with all manner of accusations. But I have my own country to worry about.
