Zimbabwe: Age of Consent to Go Up to 18 - Mnangagwa
8 MARCH 2017 - Allafrica
VICE PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa says government was in the process of introducing a law that would see the statutory age of consent to sex by girls raised from 16 to 18 years.
He was responding to calls by Senators on Tuesday that the minimum age one could be allowed to consent to sex should be aligned to a 2016 Constitutional Court ruling which outlawed the marriage of or among minors below 18.
While the ruling was followed with euphoric victory among child and women's rights activists, some felt it remained hollow as girls as young as 16 could still indulge in sex and even conceive children for as long as they did not proceed to get married before 18.
"We have a landmark ruling in this country which states that nobody should be married or be married off when they are below the age of 18," Senator representing people with disabilities, Anna Shiri, had said earlier.
She was contributing to a motion which called on the government to ratify and incorporate into its gender laws, the SADC Model Law on Eradicating Child Marriage.
Zimbabwe, currently, is in the process of enacting a law which seeks to operationalise the outlawing of child marriages.
"At the same time we have this Bill," Shiri said, "while we have part of the Act which says there is an age of consent to sex which is 16 years of age.
"As a result, there is some contradiction where early marriage is 18 years yet the consent to sexual activity is 16 years. We need to align these laws."
Mnangagwa, who was speaking as the country's justice minister, said government was considering raising the age of consent to 18.
"I may also say that the other two points you have raised relating to the issue of consent between juveniles or children, anybody who is below 18 is regarded as a child," Mnangagwa said.
"We had a Committee to deal with that and we have arrived at a possible solution which will come to Parliament on the issue of consent between an adult and juvenile or between a juvenile and a juvenile.
"Those issues we have debated and we believe that we should bring up also the age of consent to the age of 18. Of course, this is subject to debate when it comes to Parliament."
Mnangagwa said his ministry was in the process of aligning all the marriage laws and the progressive provisions of the SADC Model law he said will be incorporated in the comprehensive proposed Marriages Bill.
The proposed Bill will be able to amend the Marriages Act and the Customary Marriages Act and all other laws that are outdated in relation to marriages.
Men are our competitors. We want less of those around. Women are our prey. We want them poor and helpless.
North Korean Women Smuggled to China
I thought this was a interesting article.
Will Female Shortage In China Bring Down North Korean Regime?
Chinese men are buying North Korean women as wives.
But it's easy for Chinese, including smugglers and human traffickers, to cross illegally into North Korea, they say, and this props up a thriving black-market border trade that helps keep the barren North Korean economy afloat.
Dandong natives such as laid-off factory worker Lao Zhou, whose picturesque home town draws tourists eager to spy on North Korea with telescopes, shake their heads when they talk about refugees.
"North Korean women make good wives. They are beautiful and hard-working," he said, echoing an oft-repeated view. "It doesn't cost much to buy a North Korean girl for a wife and just a few thousand kwai (hundreds of dollars) to get them a residency permit."
There is also a slave trade in prostitutes. The demand for prostitutes will likely rise right along with the demand for wives.
Consider the larger context for this report about wife buying and female sex trade. On my FuturePundit blog I've reported on the sex ratio imbalance in China caused by the selective abortion of females.
Li said the normal newborn sex proportion is 100:104-107, and if China's disproportionate figure is allowed to continue unchecked, there would be 30 to 40 million marriage-age men who would be single all their lives by 2020. "Such serious gender disproportion poses a major threat to the healthy, harmonious and sustainable growth of the nation's population and would trigger such crimes and social problems as mercenary marriage, abduction of women and prostitution," Li said.
Some believe this sex ratio imbalance will make China militarily aggressive and they may be right.
In a new book, Bare Branches: Security Implications of Asia's Surplus Male Population (MIT Press), Valerie M. Hudson and Andrea M. den Boer warn that the spread of sex selection is giving rise to a generation of restless young men who will not find mates. History, biology, and sociology all suggest that these "surplus males" will generate high levels of crime and social disorder, the authors say. Even worse, they continue, is the possibility that the governments of India and China will build up huge armies in order to provide a safety valve for the young men's aggressive energies.
But consider a different possibility: Chinese men may buy so many North Korean wives that North Korea will either become militarily aggressive or collapse from within. This is not implausible. Those 30 to 40 million single men in China in the year 2020 mean there wil be 3 to 4 times more single men in China than there are women in North Korea. The Chinese will be more affluent than the North Koreans unless radical changes happen to North Korea's economy. North Korea is the place where Chinese men will have the best competitive advantage in angling for wives. The other East Asian countries are not nearly as poor as North Korea and North Korea shares a long 1,416 km land border with China.
China's economy is growing rapidly. Buying power of Chinese men is rising. Even poor Chinese farmers can afford to buy North Korean women.
Lee, the former clerk, said she was fooled into believing she would have a good life in China. "One day, a man from my home town came to see me. He was looking for good-looking women from North Korea to go to China. The prettier the better. I decided on the spot to go.
"Of course, he fooled me. He said he would introduce me to a good man, a university graduate, who was looking for a wife. Then I realized North Korean women were being sold at a cheap price to rural farmers in China."
The fact that even a rural farmer in China can afford to buy a North Korean wife means that there are far more people in China with the buying power to acquire a North Korean wife than there are North Korean women.
Expect the hostility of North Korean men toward China to increase.
Ryu remembers a woman six months pregnant arriving at the camp. The baby's father was Chinese. Four guards grabbed the woman's limbs and threw her toward the ceiling over and over until the woman aborted the fetus. Ryu helped clean up the blood afterwards. "The guards said they hated Chinese babies," says Ryu. "The North Koreans hate the Chinese now, because they are rich and betrayed socialism."
China has been cracking down on North Koreans trying to cross the border into China. But official corruption in China is sufficiently widespread that black market forces will probably prevail over official policy as a consequence of the rising buying power of single men desperate for wives.
Ms Kim was picked up a year after getting married and giving birth to a daughter. Her new family pleaded for her release, arguing that the baby needed her mother because she was still breastfeeding. Ms Kim says they paid a 10,000RMB bribe for her freedom. Three years later she is well established and has a residence permit.
Chinese men will pressure the Chinese government to allow North Korean women to pass into China. The Chinese government will see these women as a source of women to reduce the frustrations of single men who can not find Chinese wives. Chinese leaders are going to have to weigh the foreign policy and domestic policy consequences of their border policy with North Korea. If they continue to clamp down this may just encourage more corruption.
Chinese money is also going to flow to North Korean border guards and officials and corrupt them as well. This is already happening. So the North Korean guards are not all immune to the enticements of cash in exchange for looking the other way. As living standards rise in China and the female shortage worsens the amount of money available for smuggling women out of North Korea will rise.
The shortage of women in China may end up posing an existential threat to the Pyongyang regime more powerful than anything US policy makers are likely to do. North Korean leaders might react to this threat by engaging in market liberalization reforms aimed at raising North Korean living standards enough to reduce the level of desperation of North Korean women.
The regime in North Korea faces a more general economic threat from China because of rising wages in China. The higher the wages go the greater the incentive for Northeast China factory managers and other businesses to turn to the black market to supply cheap North Korean labor. This will pull both men and women out of North Korea. Will that destabilize the regime more or less than the selective removal of women from North Korea?

REVEALED: Most popular cosmetic procedures of 2016 and demand for designer vagina
THE most popular plastic surgery of 2016 has been revealed by surgeons including the rising demand for a designer vagina.
New data released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) shows there were 17.1million surgical and minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures in the US last year.
Overall surgical cosmetic procedures rose by four per cent when compared to the minimally invasive ones, which grew at the slightly lower rate of three per cent.
1. Of the 1.8million cosmetic surgeries topping the list were breast jobs with 290,467 procedures, up four per cent from 2015.
2. In second place was liposuction, up six per cent from the previous year with 235,247 recorded.
3. A nose job was third, rising two per cent from 2015 with 290,467 surgeries.
4. Next was eyelid surgery with 209,020 people going under the knife, also up two per cent.
5. And lastly facelifts saw a four per cent rise from 2015 with 131,106 recorded jobs.
For the remaining non-surgical treatments, the most popular was botox with seven million procedures recorded, up four per cent.
Second with 2.6m procedures was soft tissue fillers, up two per cent.
Next was a chemical peel, also up two per cent from 2015 with 1.36m performed.
Laser hair removal was fourth with 1.1m, which had dipped one per cent from 2015.
In fifth place was microdermabrasion, which was down 3 per cent with 775,000 procedures.
And for the first time statistics were released for labiaplasty, which has soared in popularity.
Last year 12,000 procedures were carried out, a whopping 39 per cent increase from 2015, when the ASPS began tracking the surgery.
The plastic surgery entails lifting and / or injecting fat or a filler into the area.
ASPS President Debra Johnson, MD, said: “As cosmetic procedures become more common we are seeing more diversity in the areas of the body that patients are choosing to address.
“Now patients have ongoing relationships with their plastic surgeons and feel more comfortable discussing all areas of their body that they may be interested in rejuvenating."
The ASPS also identified new fat trends ranging from body fat reduction to harvesting fat and transporting it to other parts of the body.
Dr Johnson said: "One trend we are seeing with fat involves an increase in fat grafting procedures.
“Plastic surgeons harvest a patient's unwanted fat from their abdomen using liposuction and then inject it to lift and rejuvenate other areas such as the face, buttock and even the breast.
"Because the material injected is the patient's own fat the results typically last longer than fillers."
Statistics show minimally invasive cosmetic fat injections increased by 13 per cent, fat grafting to the buttocks rose 26 per cent, but topping the trend was breast augmentation using fat which rose a whopping 72 per cent.
And non-invasive procedures were also on the rise, including skin tightening and fat reduction.
Injections targeting specific pockets of fat, such as under the chin, rose by 18 per cent.
Fat ‘freeze’ technology increased by five per cent, and skin tightening targeting saggy areas also jumped five per cent.
Dr. Johnson added: "These newer, non-invasive procedures appeal to a broad range of patients.
“Even though they aren't surgeries, patients still need to take these procedures seriously."
The once most popular procedure, the face lift, has enjoyed a resurgence last year after dipping slightly in 2015.
Dr. Johnson said: "Patients are captivated by instant improvements to the face. It's evident in the popularity of apps and filters that change how we can shape and shade our faces.
“I am not surprised to see facelifts back in the top five most popular cosmetic surgical procedures."

Controversial pick-up artist Roosh V celebrates Donald Trump’s victory: ‘If the President can say it then you can say it’
There are plenty of people who have mourned the election victory of Donald Trump.
Many of the protesters who have filled the streets of New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, fear his win will validate the sort of sexist and misogynist language and behaviour displayed by the New York tycoon during the campaign.
Yet a man who has made his name as a self-described expert on “picking up girls”, has been celebrating Mr Trump’s victory for those very reasons.
Daryush Valizadeh, who runs the website Roosh V and who published a book called Bang, which is says is a “textbook for…getting laid”, has been writing about how the promotion of a man caught bragging on video about sexually assaulting women, will benefit his readers.
“The celebrations have ended and we’ve all come to absorb the fact that Donald Trump is our next president, an outcome that many of us have aggressively worked for in the past several months,” he wrote.
“Now that we’ve gotten what we wanted, it’s time to describe exactly how a Trump presidency will improve our standing.”
Mr Valizadeh said the biggest affect will be the “death of political correctness”.
“We now have a s**tlord for President who has insulted ugly women as “fat pigs,” and whose private macho talk, which all masculine men have done, was relentlessly attacked by the press but not punished in the voter booth,” he said.
“This means that when you talk like Trump, the first thought your listener will have is, ‘He sounds like the President of the United States’.”
Mr Valizadeh made headlines earlier this year when he was accused of being “pro-rape” after publishing a “satirical thought experiment” apparently advocating legalising rape on private premises as a means of reducing rape.
He has also been condemed for his 15 self-published books, which include titles such as 30 Bangs, and YouTube videos giving advice to men on how to have sex with women.
Mr Valizadeh said the election result showed that “either Trump was elected because voters liked a person who makes those kinds of statements or they didn’t care enough that he made them”.
He added: “Whichever explanation you accept means that the will of the American people has stated that you can exercise your free speech, your opinions, and your desire to flirt with attractive women without having to obey a speech police force that evaluates everything you do based on how offensive it is to a kaleidoscope of races and loony identities.”
He said: “You can begin removing your politically correct filter.”
Protesters who have taken to the streets and parks of America’s biggest cities have been arguing the very same point, but from a different perspective. They say the election of Mr Trump means women and minorities are more vulnerable then ever.
In Los Angeles, Ru Dominguez, 52, an organiser with the labour union Unite Here who attended the LA march, said she and fellow union members were prepared to oppose his agenda at every turn. “We’re going to stick together,” she said. “Trump is a racist, he’s ignorant, and he’s not my president.”
In New York, a 25-year-old black man who asked to be identified only by his first name, James, told The Independent the election of Mr Trump had already led to a wave of incidents of racial and sexist abuse and harassment.
He said that because Mr Trump was elected after using racist language and being filmed bragging about abusing women, people felt emboldened. “I don’t think all Trump supporters are racist. I think a lot have lost their jobs and have fallen for his words,” he said.
Feminists have institutionalized violence against men through the legal systems of all Western nations. But women cannot win the violence competition. The more violent societies become, the more women need protection. And the more they need protection, the quicker they will abandon feminism. Rich men should invest their money in fostering violence in all societies. Then they will end up with their own harems. No feminists inside there.
New hope for men wanting to enlarge their manhood: Silicone penis implant adds two inches to girth AND length - and lasts for life
The size of a man’s penis plays a huge role in his self esteem.
Having a small member can proliferate feelings of being less masculine or appealing to the opposite sex.
And so, men blighted by a smaller manhood may abstain from sexual encounters – or shy away from the locker rooms at the gym.
These feelings of inadequacy can lead to depression, problems with intimacy and potentially even suicidal thoughts.
However, a Beverly Hills urologist, Dr James Elist, has developed a revolutionary penile enhancement procedure that offers new hope to men with small penises.
A silicone implant is inserted into the penis during the $13,000 (£9,000) procedure – instantly increasing the length and girth by approximately two inches.
Dr Elist told Daily Mail Online that patients have the option of choosing between three implant sizes for the procedure: Large, extra large and double extra large.
The surgeon explained: ‘Nobody wants to have a small or medium one.’
Dr Elist has been working as an urologist for more than 35 years.
He has always had an interest in men’s sexual dysfunction – and even garnered notoriety as the first doctor to link cigarette smoking with impotence.
‘If men see the sign on cigarettes that say smoking can cause impotency, they can blame it on me,’ he said.
For decades, the doctor was one of many who performed an operation on men with erectile dysfunction, in which a prosthesis was inserted into the arteries of the penis.
The procedure was designed to allow blood to properly flow through the arteries, so that a man could achieve an erection.
Dr Elist explained: ‘I noticed after insertion of the implant, between a year or two, most men were complaining that the size of their penis shrunk.
‘They did have an erection, but the girth and length of the penis decreased.’
In 2002, the doctor discovered a solution for the ‘shrinking’ problem.
At the time, there were many penile enhancement treatments available – but none were effective.
Fat injections were previously used to increase the girth, but Dr Elist told Daily Mail Online that fat is absorbed after five or six months.
He said: ‘It gives the patients total deformity, because it was forming lumps and bumps under the penis.’
Furthermore, foreign tissue transplants and even gel fillers – which are commonly used on the face to decrease wrinkles – proved to be ineffective as well.
That’s why Dr Elist came up with the idea of implanting a soft silicone sheath under the penis.
‘This is similar to breast implants – but a breast implant is a bag filled with silicone gel or in some cases saline,’ the urologist explained.
‘My implant is different; it’s not filled with anything.
‘The material is very soft silicone with the shape of the penis – which covers the penis for 270 degrees around and the whole length of the penis.’
The doctor patented his invention in 2002 – and began performing operations to insert the implants in 2004.
Since then, he has tinkered with the design, shape, techniques and even the surgery procedure.
Dr Elist said: ‘Now at this point in time, we have the perfect product: Something that I’m really very happy and even proud to present to the community.’
The implant is inserted through a small incision of an inch to an inch-and-a-half in the groin.
During the short procedure, the patient is under local anesthesia, unable to feel anything that is happening.
The doctor inserts the implant through the skin of the groin, until it gets under the skin of the penis.
Immediately after the procedure, a man’s penis will have expanded between 1.5 and 2.5 inches, Dr Elist said.
He said: ‘For most of the patients after surgery, the length of the penis and the girth of the penis are very similar.’
However, whether the doctor inserts a large, extra large or double extra large implant is partially up to the patient – but also dependent upon the man’s skin.
‘Some patients, unfortunately, are born with tight skin – or when they had the circumcision, a lot of skin was removed, so they don’t have enough skin,’ Dr Elist said.
‘So for them we start with large.’
But for patients with ‘good skin’ the doctor generally begins with an extra large implant.
The implant is designed to last for the man’s entire life.
However, the doctor noted, 10 to 15 per cent of the doctor’s patients opt to ‘upgrade’ after the procedure.
In those instances, the doctor uses the double extra large implant.
Recovery from the procedure doesn’t take too long, he said.
The men are able to go back to their daily activities and routine the following day.
However, it is vital that men abstain from sexual activities – including masturbation and oral sex – for four to six weeks afterwards.
Dr Elist said: ‘That is very important, unfortunately, some of our patients did not follow the instructions and we had some problems.
‘The skin is thin at that point, so it can get infected and you’d have to remove it.’
The surgeon has become renowned around the world for his work in penile enhancement.
Patients fly from all over to seek his help – even as far away as Moscow and Brazil.
Currently, he performs two of the implantation procedures each day.
Dr Elist told Daily Mail Online that the vast majority of his patients see a huge improvement in their self confidence after undergoing the operation.
‘We did a study of 400 of our patients retrospectively, and we noticed that the self-confidence of patients has increased significantly,’ he said.
Those whose confidence levels were previously at one or two out of 10, spiked up to nine or 10 out of 10 after the implant, the doctor added.
It is the secret dream of every Swedish or German woman to marry a black men, or at least have sex with a black man. Every smart young African man should migrate to Europe. Free money, nice house, good sex!
Secret Service officer caught in online pedophile sting gets 20 years, lifetime supervision
Following the high-profile case of Anthony Weiner, the U.S. Attorneys' Offices have successfully prosecuted another case under the Project Safe Childhood initiative.
A former Secret Service officer has been sentenced to 20 years in prison, followed by a lifetime of supervised release, for conducting sexual conversations with a minor and attempting the exchange of explicit images.
Lee Robert Moore, 38, of Church Hill, Md., pleaded guilty March 1, 2017, after Delaware State Police with the Delaware Child Predator Task Force had sexual chats online with Moore, at times when he was a work, and were requested to send him explicit photos while posing as a 14-year-old girl.
As part of the investigation, law enforcement found Moore maintained social media profiles for similar behavior, including the sending of sexual images, with a 14-year-old girl in Texas and another 17-year-old girl in Missouri.
Moore was assigned to the White House by the Secret Service at the time of his 2015 arrest, and was terminated from his position as he was held in custody since that time.
Project Safe Childhood was launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to use federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals exploiting children via the Internet, as well as identify and rescue victims.

ISIS Takes Page Out of the CIA’s Interrogation Manual, Validates Anti-Torture Activists’ Concerns
In the years since the September 11th terrorist attack and the start of the “war on terror,” the United States has become a country that openly admits to using “harsh” or “enhanced interrogation” methods on prisoners. Those who support these interrogation methods argue that they were necessary to gather information on terrorist groups (despite the complete lack of evidence supporting such a claim), while those who condemn the use of such interrogation methods have pointed out that they are illegal and set a bad precedent that could entice foreign groups to use “enhanced interrogation” on our troops.
Unfortunately, it appears that this bad precedent has finally emerged as a tangible threat to the American public; the Islamic State terrorist group (also known as ISIS and ISIL) which is currently rampaging across Iraq has begun using CIA-style “enhanced interrogation” on kidnapped westerners.
Defining Enhance Interrogation
“Enhanced interrogation” methods confirmed to have been used by the government include solitary confinement, waterboarding, superficial beatings (ex. slapping prisoners), exposure to extreme temperatures, prolonged stress positions, and blasting extremely loud music.
Not to mince words, these “enhanced interrogation” methods are torture—the term “enhanced interrogation” is simply a euphemism created by the Bush Administration to repackage the torture methods copied from a soviet-Chinese interrogation manual. In the past, we have condemned other nations for using solitary confinement and beatings on our prisoners of war, and have even executed several Japanese officers for the war crime of waterboarding American soldiers during WWII.
Repackaging torture under a different name may make it more palatable for an ill-informed American public, but it does nothing to preserve the US’s moral high ground. If we torture and commit war crimes, we lose the ability to credibly complain when other nations commit similar violations.
ISIS Using CIA Interrogation Methods
According to several European hostages who were ransomed from the Islamic State terrorists, their captors tortured them with beatings and waterboarding. In addition to their personal accounts, these hostages have described watching other prisoners get tortured via waterboarding, including American journalist James Foley, who was recently beheaded by the terrorist group. These accounts of waterboarding being used on Americans are the first such accounts in the years since the United States has begun using the torture method.
Ultimately, ISIS has demonstrated that it is an unspeakably vicious terrorist group that would almost certainly have water boarded its hostages, even if the US had not become infamous for the practice. They have buried women and children alive, burned captured adversaries at the stake, and even publically crucified allies who were seen as too moderate—to them, waterboarding is tame and there is no reason to believe that the US’s conduct had any effect on their decisions.
That said, the fact that we have publically claimed that waterboarding is not torture invalidates our ability to complain when ISIS decides to use it on our citizens. Any American to be captured by ISIS can expect to be waterboarded, only for ISIS to declare their torture to be “enhanced interrogation” no different from what the United States has subjected dozens of innocent Muslims to.
Put simply, if waterboarding is torture when ISIS does it to Americans, then it is torture when we do it to suspected terrorists—accordingly, if waterboarding, is just legal “enhanced interrogation” when we do it, ISIS has every right to avail itself of the tactic when extracting information from Americans.
The waterboarding of Americans by ISIS and the inability of our government to credibly respond with outrage is confirmation of the anti-torture argument that our use of torture entices others to torture our citizens. When Bush decided to start torturing (or, more likely, Cheney decided to use torture and Bush was simply dragged along for the ride) and Obama decided to let his predecessor’s acts go unpunished, they caused immense damage to our nation’s credibility to speak out against abuses on our citizens. We have dirtied our reputation and, unless we are willing to call out to torturers in our own ranks, we will have no right to demand that those who torture our countrymen be punished.
