SW Radio Africa News Stories for Wednesday 7th November 2012
Alex Bell looks at concerns raised about the fate of the rule of law in Southern Africa, against the backdrop of Zimbabwe’s forthcoming elections. We hear from Chegutu farmer Ben Freeth, who addressed a meeting at the UK House of Commons in London this week, where he warned that the lack of the rule of law could spell disaster for Zimbabwe in the future.
MDC99 leader Job Sikhala says the way Robert Mugabe and ZANU PF are splashing around money on massive building projects and inputs for farmers, is clear evidence revenue from the diamonds is being diverted to fund party activities
Sango says Mugabe is someone who is demented, as old age caught up with him. No wonder he says weird things but it’s criminal of him to continue running the country. He now has very poor judgement and knowledge on issues pertaining to the management of the country; Mkoma says Chitungwiza MDC councillors, who were expelled from the party for corruption, have been re-admitted back to the structures. He believes the MDC now operates like ZANU PF; while Zifunsi says it’s proven that the brutal beating of the MDC treasurer in Kadoma, John Kinnaird, was the work of ZPF thugs. They were sent by violent war vet leader Jabulani Sibanda, who is currently terrorising the area & forcing church leaders to meet him as he tries to win church support for his party.
