Alex Bell is joined in studio by Charles Taffs, the President of the Commercial Farmers Union, who travelled to London this week to counter the misinformation published in a new book on the land grab campaign.

It doesn’t guarantee the end to violence, vote rigging or intimidation and people should vote NO to it; while Siza says he is concerned that both MDC parties are running around addressing campaign rallies and talking about elections, instead of talking about the reforms needed in the security sector and media. They should be clear and tell the world they won’t participate in any election without all reforms being implemented.
