Mugabe's opponents 'forced to eat election posters'


www.guardian.co.uk

Human rights groups today accused Robert Mugabe's government of harassing and intimidating opposition supporters before Saturday's national elections.

Amnesty International cited a case on March 7, when three members of the Morgan Tsvangirai-led faction of the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) were ordered by intelligence officers to take down election posters.

According to Amnesty, the officials forced the opposition supporters to chew the posters and swallow them.

That's a little excessive, don't you think? I can't imagine the feeling of being forced to do such a thing, other than disgust. Apparently this is the kind of world we live in. I feel for our African friends.


"The conditions are definitely not conducive to free and fair elections. Our supporters are still being harassed, and the police are being used as weapons for intimidation," the MDC secretary-general, Tendai Biti, told Agence-France-Presse.

The opposition and human rights groups are particularly worried by the government's decision to allow police into polling stations - ostensibly to assist illiterate and infirm voters. The US state department said the move was one of several that could "preclude free and fair elections on March 29".

We have Muslim countries with lots of oil who's populace willingly partakes in the craziness, Yet time and time again we have African countries who's populace is forced to partake in it... at there own demise...

It's really nice who we choose to help out...

No one cares about Africa, as its harder to get away with exploiting them, If anyone does it gets everyone in an uproar, but at the same time, no one is wiling to get in an uproar to actually help them... so I'm assuming the plan is to let them wipe each other off the map so then we can go in and pillage there natural resources...

As this is the same man who had no problem with genocidal killing of his own people, this does not surprise me in the least.

This man, along with all other tyrants, should be long gone.

Facing a Zimbabwean Genocide

There's plenty of evidence inciting a genocide in Zimbabwe, but its not the topic at hand, so I will not go into that right now.

This man has no shame:





I wonder how much longer the people of the world will allow tyrants to ruin their lives?

How many more lives must be lost for their greed and lust of power?
