dbo:abstract
  • Welshman Ncube (7 de julio de 1961) es un político de Zimbabwe. Él es el presidente del Movimiento para el Cambio Democrático (tan otorgado por un tribunal de justicia, en lugar de MDC-Tsvangirayi liderado por Morgan Tsvangirayi), y desde febrero de 2009 ha sido el Ministro de Industria y Comercio. Fue elegido miembro de la Cámara de la Asamblea de Zimbabwe para el noreste de Bulawayo, en las elecciones de 2000 y sirvió en la Cámara de la Asamblea hasta 2008. Ncube es un abogado académico que ha sido profesor de Derecho de la Universidad de Zimbabwe desde 1992. Él tiene un BL (Licenciado en Derecho), LLB (Licenciado en Derecho) y un máster (Derecho) grados de la Universidad de Zimbabwe. Su tesis MPhil fue para el Derecho Consuetudinario de Zimbabwe que se centra en Derecho de Familia. En 1997 compró 30 kilómetros cuadrados de tierra con la intención de desarrollarla como una granja, pero fue capturado por el programa de redistribución de tierras del gobierno. La tierra no había sido cultivada. En 2002 Ncube fue uno de los tres diputados del MDC de ser acusados de alta traición sobre un presunto complot para asesinar a Robert Mugabe, pero al igual que los demás fue declarado no culpable. El Consejo Nacional del MDC votó a favor de participar en las elecciones, el líder del MDC de Tsvangirai trató de expulsar a los candidatos seleccionados del partido y se suspendió a Ncube en espera de una audiencia disciplinaria en el congreso MDC en febrero de 2006, pero fracasó porque no pudo hacerlo por la Constitución. El grupo se reunió en el Congreso MDC en Bulawayo y optó por Arthur Mutambara, como su nuevo presidente. El 16 de junio de 2007, Ncube y Tendai Biti, secretario general de la facción del MDC-Tsvangirai, se reunieron con el ministro de Justicia, Patrick Chinamasa y el ministro de Trabajo, Nicholas Goche, en Pretoria, Sudáfrica. El presidente sudafricano, Thabo Mbeki, designado por la Comunidad de Desarrollo del África Meridional, presidió las negociaciones que buscaban poner fin a las sanciones económicas en Zimbabwe. Ncube es fundamental en las negociaciones para el gobierno de unidad de Zimbabwe y es un principal que representa el MDC. En 2011, después de que su partido lo eligió para la presidencia, Robert Mugabe se negó a jurar como el Primer Ministro del Estado Adjunto según lo acordado en el Acuerdo Político Global. Cuando el gobierno de unidad nacional de ZANU-PF-MDC fue juramentado el 13 de febrero de 2009, Ncube se convirtió en Ministro de Industria y Comercio. (es)

He is the 3rd President of the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC), a practicing lawyer in the firm Mathonsi Ncube Law Chambers where he is the senior partner at their Bulawayo offices and runs a number of business ventures including a farm in the Midlands Province. He served as a member of the House of Assembly of Zimbabwe for 13 years, from 2000 -2013 and as Minister for Commerce and Industry from 2009 to 2013. Ncube rose to prominence in 1992 when he became one of the youngest professors at the University of Zimbabwe at the age of 31. He emerged from the University of Zimbabwe Faculty of Law as a Professor who had much promise and hope for Zimbabwe based on his good grasp of civil rights and the legal implications as he became one of the founding members of the MDC. His marvelous academic background, wide knowledge on public affairs and venerable leadership skills and experience would prove to be a viable tool in the new political dispensation bound to challenge the complacent Zanu PF. His genius went unpublicized until the wiki leaks era, when one cable by former American Ambassador to Zimbabwe Christopher Dell read “genius, who is highly divisive and must be taken off the stage”. He is one of the three tried with Treason for plotting to topple the government of Robert Mugabe. It later turned out that the charges were a well calculated plot designed by a team of international lobbyist led by the notorious former Isaeli spy Ari Ben-Manashe. [Flagrant peacock language appears throughout this introduction, can someone please fix or flag?] Ncube was instrumental in the Global Political Agreement negotiations that led to the formation of the Zimbabwean Government of National Unity (GNU). In the GNU he became the Minister of Industry and Commerce, in that capacity he got to chair COMESA Council of Ministers. He is popular for being assertive, vocal and independent as he also at times does not want to claim all the credit on his chest for the achievements from his political camp. He would rather stand his own ground, express himself well and fight his own case even against the majority as long as he believes in the genuine validity and nobility of his cause. For such bravery and independence he has developed a decent following from various sectors of the population including youth voters and disgruntled citizens yearning for change. Ncube has been a man of his word and he stands by his principles regardless of circumstances, weather or company. (en)
