By definition, democracy is a form of a government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them directly or indirectly through a system of representation usually involving periodically held free elections. It also presumes that the people have the authority to choose their governing legislation. Some cornerstones of democracy include freedom of assembly and speech, inclusiveness and equality, membership, voting, right to life and minority rights.
Democracy places power on the people than the elected leadership. And the leadership that arises from democratic leadership is supposed to be servant leadership, which answers to the wills of the electorate.

President of Mozambique: Fillipe Nyusi

Incumbent President Filipe Nyusi was declared the landslide winner in Mozambique's election this month, despite claims of widespread cheating, the electoral commission announced on Sunday.

Nyusi of the ruling Frelimo party scored 73-percent of the vote, ahead of Ossufo Momade of Renamo, the rebel group turned opposition party, with almost 22 percent, commission chairman Abdul Carimo told a press briefing.

Renamo protested the outcome, saying the ballot was tainted by "massive electoral fraud".

Nyusi had been widely predicted to win based on unofficial results from the October 15 vote, and Frelimo had already organised victory celebrations in the capital on Sunday.

Opinion: THE ART OF COMBATING XENOPHOBIA THROUGH CULTURAL DIVERSITY By Lisa Bokani Motsu

THE ART OF COMBATING XENOPHOBIA THROUGH CULTURAL DIVERSITY

“To oppose knowledge? God forbid! Nay, for God, knowledge is the most glorious gift of man and the most noble of human perfections. To oppose knowledge is ignorant, and he who detests knowledge and science is not a man, but rather an animal without intelligence. For knowledge is light, life, felicity, perfection, beauty and the means of approaching the Threshold of Unity. It is the honour and glory of the world of humanity, and the greatest bounty of God. Knowledge is identical with guidance, and ignorance is real error” Abdu'l Baho


Humanity? Humanity is just a dictionary word to us today. Humanity? An illusion we have fixed in our minds that exist not. Together, we were in the struggle but look at us now. Turned against one another like adversaries in a war, we have become unsympathetic of our own so effortlessly. This bolt from the blue has turned our soft hearts to wickedness and selfish desire. Desire to bring about violence, desire to hurt and desire to end lives. Impeccable lives for that matter. People are engrossed and enthralled by fear as minds have no traceable idea if they will live to see another day or not.

Will Technology Ruin Your Children’s Development? By Dhruvin Patel



Multiple digital devices

Technology has completely changed virtually every aspect of our society over the past few decades, from the way we work to the way we socialize and everything in between. One of the differences that have been most noticeable is the change in the way that children play and interact with each other from previous generations. Although technology does provide many positive benefits for learning, it also can have several negative effects on child development and quality of life.
One of the biggest differences in the way that children live today is that they don’t get as much exercise as they used to. This is because technology such as computers, smart phones and television encourages them to be sedentary when they get home from school, as opposed to going outside and playing with other kids. Child obesity rates have risen drastically over the past several decades. In 2012, the child obesity rate was measured to be 18 percent, which is an 11 point difference from the obesity rate in 1980. While many schools and parents have made strides to change this by promoting organized exercise both during and after school, we still have a long way to go in helping kids playing in more conventional ways.

Opinion: Malawi needs transformational leadership By Emily Mkamanga

 Malawi President: Peter Mutharika

As it were, all the attention in this month’s elections is on who is likely to be Malawi’s next President.
So far, the presidential candidates have said enough in their campaigns for people to make up their minds on who to vote for.
The competition among the candidates is very stiff. Even being in government, as the case is with President Peter Mutharika, does not seem to be an added advantage. The problem here is that his five-year rule has been full of misery due to allowing corruption, stealing of public resources and general abuse of power. Therefore, all the presidential candidates are starting from the same level.
Naturally, Mutharika would want to be a step ahead because of what he has done for the people of Malawi. He has recently promoted teachers and police officers. These promotions were long overdue and, maybe it is done now for the sake of buying more votes.

Opinion: The crocodile and the duck By Cathy Buckle

 Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa

Sitting at the water’s edge watching hippos and crocodiles, white-faced whistling ducks and skittish spoonbills this Easter, the reality of Zimbabwe’s political, economic and humanitarian crisis was never far from my mind. Stopping on the way to my destination I was horrified to discover that the price of bread had gone up from $1.20 to $3.50 a loaf. On exclaiming at the huge price increase, the teller said: “But it’s only RTGS dollars.” RTGS dollars are the only dollars that most ordinary people have in Zimbabwe but these Bond Notes are now worth 300% less than they were worth just two months ago, as are our bank balances, salaries, life savings and pensions.
