Donald Trump has no grasp of what it means to be president | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it
DEFENDERS of President Donald Trump offer two arguments in his favour—that he is a businessman who will curb the excesses of the state; and that he will help America stand tall again by demolishing the politically correct taboos of left-leaning, establishment elites. From the start, these arguments looked like wishful thinking.

Letter from America: I see nothing good in Mnangagwa’s immediate future – Nehanda Radio | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it
Ken Mufuka - Yes, I know that Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa has been hospitalised, after suffering from a suspected food poisoning. Yes, I know that my friend Sister Governor Mai Shuvai Mahofa of Masvingo, who sadly passed away this week, also suffered from food poisoning in similar circumstances last year. Yes, I also know that the Vice President has suffered three previous mishaps similar to the one he is undergoing now. Assuming that he survives this latest episode, the stars in his immediate future, seem to me to be in utter disarray.
