Zimbabwe neighbours warned not to interfere in Mugabe turmoil
Fri, 17 Nov 2017 15:07:05 -0500
Zimbabwe neighbours warned not to interfere in Mugabe turmoilZimbabwean activists have warned other countries not to intervene amid an apparent split between two of Zimbabwe's neighbours over whether to support or oppose the defacto coup against Robert Mugabe.  Ian Khama, the president of Botswana and a long time foe of Mr Mugabe, became the first world leader to effectively endorse the military's intervention on Friday when he said the strongman had no regional support for continuing his 37 year rule. "I don't think anyone should be president for that amount of time. We are presidents. We are not monarchs. It's just common sense," Mr Khama told Reuters.  Mr Mugabe's departure would be an “an opportunity to put Zimbabwe on a path to peace and prosperity," he added.  His remarks appeared to contradict earlier comments by Jacob Zuma, the president of South Africa who also chairs the Southern African Development Community (SADC), a 16-nation regional bloc.  Timeline Robert Mugabe as leader of Zimbabwe "We note with great concern the unfolding political development in Zimbabwe and we hope that they will not lead to unconstitutional change of government," Mr Zuma said following a summit in Botswana.  South Africa sent two envoys to mediate talks between Mugabe and the Zimbabwean Defense Forces on Thursday, sparking speculation on Zimbabwean social media that they might have stiffened the president's resolve not to give into demands he step down.  More than 30,000 people signed a petition urging the SADC not to attempt to intervene as Zimbabwe grapples with Robert Mugabe's fall from power.  "There is no need at this time for you to do anything but business as usual," the petition reads.  "We speak for many people when we say we hoped and prayed for this day for long and now that it's here, DON'T mess it up for us." China, a major investor in Zimbabwe, on Friday called for the crisis to be resolved peacefully.  "China calls on all sides in Zimbabwe to keep their eyes on the country's long-term and fundamental interests and to uphold dialogue and consultations to bridge differences," Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told Reuters.    Rex Tillerson, the US secretary of state, urged Zimbabwe to hold quick elections but did not explicitly condemn the military's intervention.  Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe leaves after presiding over a student graduation ceremony at Zimbabwe Open University Credit: AP Photo/Ben Curtis "We all should work together for a quick return to a civilian rule in that country in accordance with their constitution,"  Mr Tillerson, the US Secretary of State, speaking in Washington ahead of a previously scheduled meeting with African leaders.  Events in  Zimbabwe present regional powers with a dilemma because they cannot publicly endorse a military coup, regardless of whether they would like to see transition in the country.  The army's seizure of power "flies in the face of protocol" required for SADC to recognise any new government, said Amb. Reuben Brigety II, the former United States Representative to the African Union.  Military leaders in Zimbabwe have attempted to assuage those concerns by insisting they are merely managing a peaceful change of power and seeking to use constitutional measures to complete Mr Mugabe's ouster.  Peter Fabricius, an analyst with the Pretoria-based Institute for Security Studies, said the South African government appeared to have underestimated Emmerson Mnangagwa, the former vice president believed to be behind the coup.  "Practically speaking, Zuma knows Mnangagwa would be better" than Mugabe, Mr Fabricius said.

Ohio State latest university to crack down on fraternities after hazing allegations
Fri, 17 Nov 2017 17:36:05 -0500
Ohio State latest university to crack down on fraternities after hazing allegationsOhio State University has become the latest US academic institution to ban on fraternity ceremonies amid concern that alcohol-fuelled initiations are putting students at risk. The move comes within days of Texas State University outlawing all "Greek Activities" - encompassing both fraternities and sororities - following the death of a Phi Kappa Psi inductee. Similar steps have been taken in recent weeks at the University of Michigan and Florida State University. There has been mounting concern at the human toll arising from the incidents of "hazing" at many universities in the US. Such rituals involve pledgees drinking copious amounts of alcohol in a very short time, with at times fatal consequences. In May, 18 students at Penn State were charged with offences including aggravated assault and furnishing alcohol to minors following with the death of Timothy Piazza, a 19-year-old engineering student. It is estimated there have been 40 deaths from hazing at US campuses over the last 10 years. Attorney Stacy Parks Miller, left, announces findings an investigation into the death of Penn State University fraternity pledge Tim Piazza Credit: Abby Drey/AP The Ohio decision was announced by Ryan Lovell, the senior director for sorority and fraternity life at the university, the New York Times reported. “During the period of this directive, your chapter may request to participate in essential activities only,” Mr Lovell wrote. Since the start of the academic year, 11 of the university's 37 fraternities have come under investigation, although details of the alleged offences have not been disclosed.
