SW Radio Africa News Headlines Monday 17th December 2012
Bulawayo East MP Tabitha Khumalo, talks to Tererai about statistics released by the Victim Friendly Unit of the Zim police last week, showing that more than 2,400 cases of child rape had been reported between January and October this year. A total of 3,421 cases of child abuse were reported in that same period. It’s believed many more cases are unreported, due to fear and shame. Khumalo said a clear message must be sent to victims that the only way to heal is to talk about the experience with others and not be ashamed.
Dr. Stan Mukasa analyses the increasingly evident preparations for war against Zimbabweans, by Mugabe and ZANU PF ahead of next year’s elections.
Mutendi says in Bikita the ZANU PF parliamentary losing candidate in 2008, Elias Musakwa, has been giving out seeds and fertiliser to villagers and threatening to weed out MDC supporters in the area. He says he won’t lose elections again; Gorozozo says he is concerned that PM Tsvangirai is still agreeing to work with Mutambara in the GNU, when SADC says he should not. This will haunt him in the future; while Freddie says in Honde Valley, trucks came with the presidential seed and fertiliser to be distributed, but when people couldn’t produce ZPF membership cards the trucks returned with their loads.
