Grace and Robert Mugabe 'to remain in Zimbabwe' under government deal

Grace and Robert Mugabe 'to remain in Zimbabwe' under government dealRobert Mugabe and his family are set to remain in Zimbabwe under a deal with the ruling party that will see them retreat from politics in exchange for secure retirement, diplomatic and political sources in Harare said.   Mr Mugabe, 93, resigned on Tuesday following a military coup and an outpouring of public anger at economic mismanagement, corruption, and political violence during his nearly four decades of rule.  During celebrations in Harare following his resignation on Tuesday night, one man told The Telegraph he would like to see the former president "in leg irons". But in a possible indication of plans to rehabilitate the ousted president, posters were put up in Harare on Wednesday with the slogan "let Mugabe rest now". "President Mugabe is now a private citizen. Let’s let him enjoy a private life," said Nick Mangwana, the head of the Zanu-PF branch in London. "For the 1st time in history, Zimbabwe has a former leader. We don’t know how to treat such," he added on Twitter.  Mr Mugabe and his family may also be allowed to retain control of their assets, including the "Blue Roof", the vast luxury Harare mansion where Mr Mugabe and Grace Mugabe, the former first lady, spent the past week under house arrest.  Profile | Grace Mugabe It is unclear whether there would be any investigation into how Mrs Mugabe amassed wealth including what is believed to be the largest land and real estate portfolio owned by anyone in Zimbabwean history. Welshman Ncube, a barrister, constitutional lawyer, and long time opposition leader said: "Mugabe is a complex character. He would have told the military, 'make me a martyr but I am going nowhere'. Given the vitriol and hatred towards Grace Mugabe, I suspect she will move in and out but spend more time out of Zimbabwe. He added: "Remember however much we want a new Zimbabwe, Mnangagwa was, from the beginning,  an enforcer for Mugabe, as were the generals. I would so like to be wrong, but this is not about a new Zimbabwe, it is still about Zanu-PF which has always been a party of coercion.” Other allies of Mrs Mugabe from the G40, the faction of Zanu-PF that supported her, may not be so lucky.  Phelekezela Mphoko, Zimbabwe's second vice president who was in Japan at the time of the coup, is believed to have flown to Zambia. Savior Kasukawere, a local government minister, and Jonathan Moyo, the tertiary education minister, are understood to have fled to South Africa.  Mr Moyo said on Twitter earlier this week that about 50 other senior Zanu-PF figures had also left the country.  Human rights groups have expressed concern about the whereabouts of Ignatius Chombo, the finance minister, who has not been seen since the night of the coup on November 14.  It emerged on Wednesday that Mr Mugabe himself turned down an offer of asylum from neighbouring Zambia at the height of the coup.  “I had talked to him that if the chips are down you can come here but he refused saying that his home was Zimbabwe and he will remain there,” Edgar Lungu, the president of Zambia, told local media.

Charlie Gard doctors remain 'unconvinced' after flying visit by US neurosurgeon who said he could treat him

Charlie Gard doctors remain 'unconvinced' after flying visit by US neurosurgeon who said he could treat himThe British doctors caring for Charlie Gard are understood to remain unconvinced by an American neurosurgeon who claimed he could treat the little boy. Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) staff spent five and half hours on Tuesday locked in discussions with Dr Michio Hirano, a US specialist who flew back to the US on Tuesday night. Charlie’s mother Connie Yates was also present at the meeting to determine the best course of action for her 11-month-old son. Dr Hirano had flown to London on Monday to examine the boy and assess brain scans carried out at the weekend. Timeline: Charlie Gard's parents' battle 02:17 Dr Hirano had said his experimental therapy could help treat Charlie, who suffers from a rare genetic disease. GOSH believes that Charlie has suffered irreversible brain damage and that life support should be withdrawn but his parents Connie Yates and Chris Gard, from Bedfont in west London, argue he should be transferred to a New York hospital for treatment from Dr Hirano.  A High Court has already ruled that Charlie be allowed to ‘die with dignity’ but agreed to further examination after hearing Dr Hirano’s therapy could significantly improve his quality of life. Dr Michio Hirano  Miss Yates, 31, thanked Dr Hirano and another specialist, who cannot be named, for flying in to see her child. She said: “Our gorgeous baby boy is still stable. We are at his bedside and feel satisfied he is not suffering or in any pain. As Charlie’s loving parents we are doing the right thing for our son in exploring all treatment options.” She said that Dr Hirano had requested a new MRI scan and a 30-minute EEG scan but that “GOSH preferred a longer EEG which the judge ordered”.  Miss Yates added: “Our son has now undergone the scans. We have facilitated the experts in every possible way. Charlie will be having some more tests shortly.” It is not clear what those tests are. Connie Yates and Chris Gard with baby Charlie Great Ormond Street has declined to comment on the discussions with Dr Hirano while the court case is ongoing. But it is understood the hospital failed to be persuaded by claims he had made in the High Court last week that he could help Charlie and that he had seen no evidence of irreversible brain damage. The hospital is understood to be sticking by its position statement issued last Thursday. In that statement, the hospital said: “It has been and remains the unanimous view of all those caring for charlie at Great Ormond Street that withdrawal of ventilation and palliative care are all that the hospital can offer him consistent with his welfare. "That is because in the view of his treating team and all those from whom GOSH obtained second opinions, he has no quality of life and no real prospect of any quality of life.” The case will come back to the High Court on Friday with further hearings expected next week that will finally decide the fate of Charlie,who suffers from mitochondrial depletion syndrome. His doctors say he is blind, deaf, unable to move and badly brain damaged, with no hope of recovery. The case has become a cause celebre with interventions from Donald trump and the Vatican in support of Charlie’s parents. The Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court have both uphold the decision of Mr Justice Francis in the High Court that Charlie’s life support be withdrawn.

Merkel says 'deep differences' with Erdogan remain

Merkel says 'deep differences' with Erdogan remainGerman Chancellor Angela Merkel said Saturday that “deep differences” remain between her and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, after they met on the sidelines of the G20 summit. Turkey’s sweeping arrests of alleged state enemies after last year’s coup attempt and a dispute centred on a NATO base “are developments which I of course raised that show deep differences,” Merkel said. Berlin-Ankara relations have been fraught, deteriorating sharply over Turkey’s mass crackdown after the failed putsch against Erdogan last year and a host of other civil rights controversies.
