New world order beckons: Is Zimbabwe ready for it?

feature

By Nevanji Madanhire

Zimbabwe is one country which would benefit a great deal if a New World Order materializes. We all must have read about this new world where the United States will no longer lead the world through the dominance of its currency, the US dollar. Because of the US dollar the whole world has been at the beck and call of the one country creating a unipolar world.

With the growth of China to become the second biggest economy and poised to overtake the US in a few years’ time the Asian country is ready to challenge for the top. This has been long coming. China spearheaded the formation of BRICS, originally a coalition of the fastest growing economies that included Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa but now attracting some of the richest countries around the world outside the European Union.

Many countries have for long objected to America’s use of its dollar muscle to dominate the world through unconventional means such as sanctions, blatant sabotage and regime change. The US military is all over the world either starting wars or pretending to stop them, yet it has become all apparent that all these military interventions are aimed to reinforce American hegemony.

Zimbabwe is suffering under US sanctions imposed at the turn of the millennium through Zidera. Zimbabwe’s atrocious human rights record particularly between 2000 and 2002 have been cited as one of the reasons for the sanctions. The situation was worsened when the ruling part embarked on a fast-track land reform programme which saw white commercial farmers lose their land to blacks who had been disadvantaged for over a century.

It is estimated that Zimbabwe lost as much as, if not more that, US$40 billion due to the sanctions which entail among other things that the country cannot access credit from lenders across the globe and that every transnational financial earning can only be repatriated to Zimbabwe through Swift. If the New World Order comes to pass it may free Zimbabwe from the shackles of American manipulation as it will enable it to ditch the petrodollar and trade through other currencies such as the Chinese yuan.

But is Zimbabwe ready for this? Not with poor leadership and dysfunctional institutions dominating governance! Over the past 43 years the governmental system has become a cancer that has metastasized. Every organ of the state has been affected and the country has stagnated. Besides the sanctions this state of affairs can be attributed to especially opaque governance that has become inherently inefficient, ineffective and corrupt.

If the New World Order takes root and Zimbabwe remains in the state it is then it will derive little benefit from the new development. What is needed is a clean-up operation to rid the country of the cancerous cells and make sure our national institutions go through renaissance that will see them ready for the new order and thus deliver economic growth and prosperity.

In Conversation With Herman Mashaba

“I hated politics and it’s not a field I wanted to get into but I realized that if I don’t speak out and become the change, no one will” says Heram Mashaba in this riveting episode. Mashaba, former Mayor of Johannesburg, Entrepreneur, and President of Action SA takes us through his journey in business and politics. He responds to accusations that he has contributed to the rise of xenophobia in South Africa. He believes that as South Africa draws closer to its elections in 2024 the citizens have a short window to remove the ANC or risk the fate that befell Zimbabwe under Zanu-PF.

Audience Responses

From the Herman Mashaba episode, our community had this to say:

Patty Ellenberger:
THANKS for interviewing this great man Herman Mashaba. Would love him to be future leader of coalition S.A.
Kumbiraibraithwaite Chikwanda:
Herman speaks the truth. Immigrants should be documented. As a foreign national who has been admitted into South Africa legally, I agree with Herman 100%. Why should one not be documented?? South African brothers and sisters are living with many of us in peace and harmony. I feel ashamed with some of our foreign brothers and sisters who always feel entitled and arrogant.
Pranks:
Herman, a man who if he does as he says , could make South Africa on the way to recovery.
