US$ 100m set aside for infrastructure-Min. Biti
Thursday, 26 January 2012
Min Biti sets aside over US$100m for infrastructure, manufacturing, agriculture.
Hon. Tendai Biti, the Finance Minister and MDC Secretary-General has set aside over US$100 million to finance priority infrastructure projects which could not be accommodated in the 2012 national budget.
Addressing his first Treasury media briefing this year at his Government offices in Harare, Wednesday, Hon. Biti said most of the funds would be used to improve on service delivery such as water reticulation and energy.
Hon. Biti said it was urgent to assist local councils such as Harare which is facing an outbreak of the typhoid disease with over a 1 000 people having been treated since the outbreak of the disease this month.
The Office of the Prime Minister has noted with concern the article published in The Herald of 6 January 2012 titled “PM embroiled in bribery scandal” in which it was unambiguously alleged that the Prime Minister had bribed Editors from three private newspapers in order to influence them to write what The Herald described as positive stories on his political and personal life.
The Herald story however, does not provide proof of these serious allegations nor does it name the sources that provided them with the evidence to support the bribery allegations.

Police behaviour deplorable- Makone
Thursday, 12 January 2012
The recent assault of innocent ordinary people by police officers in Nkayi and Harare has been described as a sad and deplorable development that erodes the people’s confidence in the country’s police force.
Co- Home Affairs Minister, Theresa Makone, said in a statement that the police force should be guided by their national obligation to serve the people.
“ It does not bode well for the image of the police if they are seen as being at the forefront of assaulting people instead of protecting them,” she said.
