In October 2017, President Trump posed with a group of high-ranking military officers and cryptically declared that it was “#TheCalmBeforeTheStorm.” Most journalists puzzled over the remark for a moment and moved on to whatever chaos came next.

But that seemingly random comment was the spark for a what’s now become the new right-wing conspiracy theory du jour: “#TheStorm

Update: It is expected that the meeting's unanimous decision to assign Mustafa will be a final decision that will see him assume the position as acting presidnet, which is currently held by Ahmed Abdi Mohammed (pic) after the resignation of the embattled ex president Abdi Illey
Update: Mustafa is born in 1973 in #Degahbour, #Somali regional state. He is a well known critic of Abdi Illey's iron fist in the region & the rampant abuse of human rights by the Liyu police. An economist by training, he has a Masters of Science degree in Agricultural Economics

Word coming from Harvest house suggests that @nelsonchamisa indeed has a very very strong case against @ZECzim. The legal experts and other technocrats working with the people's president don't just have evidence but damming evidence of electoral theft! #ElectionsZw #Zimbabwe
It is understood that @zanupf_patriots camp is in sixes and sevens because the cdes know exactly the election was stolen and word has it that the VP is not keen on this legitimacy nonsense and is threatening to "take back chinhu chedu" right away. @tungaRuva
On the other hand, ED is furious with the manner the electoral heist was conducted and is reportedly worried about the imminent embarrassment the evidence is threatening as it directly implicates some cdes who were the underhand in@ZECzim 's operations!#263Chat #ZimElections2018

1/3 This week I attended the opening of the #Mandela centenary exhibition.

In a short speech, Lord Hain thanked one of the sponsors, Moti Group, twice.

According to @mailandguardian Lord Hain is
employed by them "in part to improve their poor reputation" mg.co.za/article/2018-0…
2/3 Moti Group is a mining & property
company that's been subject to some controversy. It allegedly has links to
Zimbabwean officials implicated in human rights violations & in 2017,
Interpol issued an international arrest warrant for the company's chair mg.co.za/article/2018-0…
3/5 Journalist @simonallison writes:

"There is no suggestion that the royals were aware of or intended to
endorse the Moti Group’s controversial business practises; or the group’s links
to senior Zimbabwean officials that have been implicated in serious human
rights violations."

1/? Today Mark Zuckerberg testifies before the Senate Judiciary and Commerce Committee (Live stream here: judiciary.senate.gov/meetings/faceb…). We have a few questions we'd like to #AskZuck..
2/? Why do privacy settings continue to only focus on what friends can & can't see? If the recent FB scandal has showed one thing, it's that FB's ad policies have far-reaching consequences for users privacy. When are you going to treat ad settings as privacy settings? #AskZuck
3/? We created a new FB profile to test default settings. By default, everyone can see your friends list & look you up using the phone number you provided. This is not what proactive privacy protections look like. How does this protect users by design / by default? #AskZuck

1/ Just a few words on what's happening in #Zimbabwe. Mugabe is out, & Grace Mugabe is out. That may not mean all that much.
2/ Mugabe was venerated (wrongly) by his faction; that explains the #Zimbabwe army's reticence about deposing him. Grace Mugabe was OTOH widely despised, because of her own actions.
3/ The main man behind the deposing of the Mugabes in #Zimbabwe is Mugabe's former strongman. IOW, every bit as guilty in oppressing the Ndebele, dissidents and others. Every bit as corrupt.

Last night I left the office & walked to the car. My route takes me through First Street.I walked past a group of elderly folks outside CABS
I walked past the same folks this morning. What sort of bathroom facilities are they using I wonder? How much cash will they eventually get?
Harsh reminder that while my transactions are mostly plastic given the infrastructure around me, others aren't so lucky & still require cash

The @WHO has rescinded its decision to appoint #Mugabe as Goodwill Ambassador for NCDs: inevitable after -ve PR bbc.co.uk/news/world-afr…
I've been asked what I think of #MugabeAtWHO a few times & despite writing my PhD on health politics in #Zimbabwe I'm not sure what to say
It was obviously a political choice on the part of @DrTedros & a nod to a particular kind of pan-Africanist sentiment
