Mugabe has gone – but his regime remains in power

• Reject Mugabe! Reject the generals!

• Workers and young people must take lead

The takeover of power by the Zimbabwe defence force is a military coup in all but name. It represents a turning point in post-independence Zimbabwe and the almost certain end of Mugabe's reign. The military take-over was precipitated by the dismissal of Mugabe's most loyal henchman for the past thirty seven years, Emmerson Mnangagwa. This was part of the 93-year old Mugabe's manoeuvres in Zanu-PF party structures to ensure his 52-year old wife Grace, would succeed him as president.

MINIMUM WAGE: NLC TAKING GOVERNMENT TO ILO IS A MISPLACEMENT OF PRIORITY!

*Declare a National day of action to commence the struggle for a new minimum wage and payment of salary arrears

However, reading the report, it is obvious that the two issues of non-payment of salaries and proscription of trade unions in Kogi state mentioned by the NLC President, Ayuba Wabba, were only raised as a side talk with a journalist.

It is no reason for the Wabba-led NLC to continue delaying urgent action on salary arrears and for a new minimum wage.
