Education is in many ways the very foundation of the world economic system today. More than ever, the workplace is dominated by knowledge based industries. The largest companies in the world are no longer the famous engines of growth in the past like steel, automobiles and general manufacturing. Today it is intellectual property that holds the key to prosperity and in no other sector is this more evident than in education.
In an attempt to garner support for Zanu PF candidate Ronald Chindedza ahead of the Norton by-election, Zanu PF officials have parcelled out food and stands among other freebies during rallies in Norton. Chindedza stands against independent candidate Temba Mliswa and David Choga from the National Constitutional Assembly.
Over the years, the Zanu PF regime has always illegally and unconstitutionally conflated the relationship between Zanu PF as a political party and the State or government. Because Zanu PF is basically a commandist and totalitarian quasi – political and militarised organisation, they have never, ever appreciated that a political party, even if it happens to be the ruling party, is not the same as a government. Put alternatively, the ruling party is not the government and conversely, the government is not the ruling party.In a modern constitutional democracy,these two bodies are indeed, separate and distinct entities.
