Harare, Zimbabwe - A loud and familiar chant rang out across the tightly-packed arena as Emmerson Mnangagwa took to the stage to be sworn in as Zimbabwe's president. "ED Pfee! ED Pfee!" the crowds roared in unison, echoing the ruling ZANU-PF party's election campaign slogan for Mnangagwa to "get in there" in the hope that Zimbabwe's second president will deliver a new era of prosperity and peace. Addressing the thousands of supporters gathered on Sunday at Harare's National Sports Stadium, Mnangagwa urged Zimbabweans to unite across political, tribal and racial divides. "We are all Zimbabweans; what unites us is greater than what could ever divide us," said the 75-year-old, a former vice president and intelligence chief nicknamed "Ngwena", Shona for crocodile. Mnangagwa's inauguration was delayed by two weeks after the main opposition coalition filed a legal challenge to reject the result of the July 30 presidential election, which it said was marred … [Read more...] about A new dawn or more of the same for Zimbabwe?

ByJoshua Lurie Aug. 11, 2018 Destination bread and pastries have been surprisingly elusive in San Diego, a city with access to stellar ingredients and international influences that aren’t beholden to rigid baking traditions.

That shouldn’t come as a shock given her bona fides. The Napa native attended California’s Culinary Institute of America at Greystone and worked for highly respected Proof Bakery in Los Angeles and San Francisco’s famed Tartine Bakery, but always dreamed of opening her own bakery by the … [Read more...] about A Bakery by the Beach Signals a New Dawn for San Diego Pastries
Paul Soti, a Durban advocacy officer for the Zimbabwe Solidarity Forum, said that for the first time in decades, the forum and other civil society organisations were able to send a delegation of observers to Zimbabwe for today’s elections. “There was no way we could have sent observation teams during the Mugabe regime. This election certainly signals a new dawn for Zimbabwe, a new dispensation where people can freely express their political opinions and affiliation,” he said. Soti, a theology and law graduate, said he was nearly killed in an attack for his political and social activism in 2012. “Even before the votes are cast and the results are announced, this election has already been a victory for the people of Zimbabwe. It is a contest of policies and manifestos, not who has the political power to block the opposition’s campaign. (MDC leader Nelson) Chamisa has held so many rallies, which is unheard of in Zimbabwe.

A former work colleague – who was at that point already past retirement age – told Dish Detective about the parties that used to take place at The Hunters Inn. Apparently, this village pub, on the edge of Swanmore and abutting the South Downs National Park, was a hotbed of activity in the ‘60s and ‘70s.I’m told that coachloads of people would be bussed out to the countryside from Portsmouth. And that the pub was well-known among the navy.Looking at the place in 2018, it seems almost impossible.A couple of years ago, Dish Detective was out exploring the Meon Valley and called in at the Hunters. Its large car park was packed – usually a good sign – however on entering the pub, the smell of cabbage and sea of white hair put us off and we shipped out to our old favourite and trusted Shoe at Exton instead.New owners Conrad and Lorna proudly posted on Facebook about their arrival and Dish Detective’s curiosity was … [Read more...] about FOOD REVIEW: Is this a new dawn for the Hunters?
