How Mugabe's hard men are attempting to eliminate the opposition activists
Many totally innocent and non-political Zimbabweans have fallen victim to the Zanu-PF terror gangs who roam both town and countryside today. But behind the picture of random persecution and death it is possible to isolate many deliberate and targeted attacks. Here are two of them.
Tichanzii Gandanga was the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party's election agent for Harare province, and indeed, with no thanks to Robert Mugabe, he still is. But he can barely stand today, let alone walk. Last Wednesday, at about 6.0 pm, four men arrived suddenly at his central Harare office.
"They told me I knew my crimes, and had to confess," Gandanga told me, from his bed in a private hospital, which I've been asked not to name.
