    Angry Mugabe's opponent's wife - burned alive

    Robert Mugabe Militia Hacks, Burns Alive Opposition Leader's Wife
    Wednesday, June 11, 2008

    The men who pulled up in three white pickup trucks were looking for Patson Chipiro, head of the Zimbabwean opposition party in Mhondoro district. His wife, Dadirai, told them he was in Harare but would be back later in the day, and the men departed.

    An hour later they were back. They grabbed Dadirai Chipiro and chopped off one of her hands and both her feet. Then they threw her into her hut, locked the door and threw a petrol bomb through the window.

    I can't imagine how horrified she was. No feet and one hand.

    hopefully smoke inhalation got to her first and she wasn't aware of the actual fire.

    I work with a woman from Zimbabwe. One of her sisters still lives there. She would love to go home to live again, but inflation is so high that she cannot afford to even though she would be able to get a job as a college professor. She owns a house there. The price that she paid for it originally is what a single egg costs now (no joke). Inflation is that bad. It breaks her heart to see the state of her country. She hopes that someone will soon be in charge that thinks about the people instead of being corrupt.

    A spokesman for the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) blamed President Robert Mugabe's ZANU-PF party for the deaths, saying they bring to 70 the number of MDC party members killed since a bitterly contested election three months ago.

    The body of the mayor's wife, 27-year-old Abigail Chiroto, was found in a mortuary close to the couple's house north of Harare. She had been beaten so severely with rocks and iron bars that her face was almost unrecognizable, said MDC spokesman Nelson Chamisa.

    "It's way out of the ordinary. It's callous," he said.

    Chiroto was kidnapped, along with her four-year-old son, on Tuesday. Some of her kidnappers wore military uniforms, Chamisa said.
    If one wants to know who has started the violence, look no further than Mugabe. He's clearly stated he has no intention of giving up power and the election on June 27 will be nothing but a sham because Mugabe will not abide by the results, just as he ignored the earlier results.

    Zimbabwe is now under control of a dictator.

    And, to think that some of our own citizens, have the nerve to complain about our country. Stories like this make me even more grateful that I live in the United States.

    Yeah. No kidding. He'll probably be asked to speak before the UN soon, to tell them how he was able to accomplish it.

    The US, of course, is given the almost-exclusive right to pick up the check.

    (No surprise - it's all our fault. I wonder if he's a poster here?)

    Cause ya know, we're stupid like that.

    How anyone could argue that we have any business hosting or being a part of the UN at this point, is beyond me.

    It has served it's purpose, we need out yesterday.

    Mugabe nonetheless contended that his policies of redistributing land taken from large farmholders white landowners were "warmly welcomed by the vast majority of our people" and the sanctions aim to "cripple Zimbabwe's economy and thereby effect illegal regime change in our country."
    ed: And then when they ruined and mismanaged the farms they took over, they alleged that the whites had salted the land so they couldn't grow anything.

    So..how's that theft working out for you now?

    In a surprise upset, Mugabe wins!

    FTA:

    Apparently it helps if you murder opposition supporters before a run-off.


    Zimbabwean opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai pulled out of a run-off election against President Robert Mugabe on Sunday, saying a free and fair poll was impossible in the current climate of violence.

    Speaking only hours after his opposition Movement for Democratic Change reported its rally had been broken up by pro-Mugabe youth militia, Tsvangirai called on the United Nations and the African Union to intervene to stop "genocide" in the former British colony.

    "We in the MDC have resolved that we will no longer participate in this violent, illegitimate sham of an election process," he told reporters in Harare.

    The MDC and Tsvangirai, who beat Mugabe in a March 29 vote but failed to win the absolute majority needed to avoid a second ballot, have repeatedly accused government security forces and militia of intimidation and strong-arm tactics to ensure a Mugabe victory in the June 27 poll.

    One of the last families left fighting eviction from their farm speaks of the brutal siege being staged by Mugabe ****s

    Christina Lamb


    THE drums and chanting started soon after dark. Fires had been lit all around the farmhouse - nearly 50 of them. In their flickering light it was easy to see the militia leaders waving guns and the terrified faces of the hundreds of farm workers they had been rounding up all day and bringing in on tractors, trailers and buses.

    Inside the terracotta-walled house that Ben and Laura Freeth had built for themselves and their children in the once peaceful farmlands of Chegutu, 70 miles southwest of Harare, the couple held each other and prayed.

    As they paced around their bedroom they tried not to think of the stories they had heard of people having hands, lips and ears hacked off. To block out the sound of the pro-Mugabe slogans they repeated over and over the words of Psalm 118: “The Lord is with me. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?”

    “There was no way we could sleep,” said Ben Freeth. “The chanting and sloganeering was military style - all in unison for hour after hour after hour all the way through the night.”

    Their sons Joshua, 8, and Stephen, 5, had been sent to stay with friends for safety. Somehow Anna, their two-year-old daughter, slept in her wooden truckle bed, looking like an angel with her white-blonde hair. Their four dogs prowled restlessly.

    The Freeths are among the last white farmers still on their land in Zimbabwe, where only one in 10 of the original 5,000 remain. They live on Mount Carmel, an estate owned by Laura’s father, Mike Campbell.

    Earlier that day they had refused to supply food to a rally for President Robert Mugabe and there were sure to be reprisals. At any moment the crowds outside could be turned on them and they could be dragged out to join the pungwe, the local Shona name for the allnight indoctrination sessions.

    “We’d had letters as well as verbal warnings from people all over the district,” Freeth said. “The election campaign is being fought on ‘100% empowerment’, that is, taking everything that belongs to people who are not black and giving it to the ruling party faithful.

    “People were told that Mount Carmel cattle and potatoes would be dished out to them. The party has got nothing else to offer the people . . . We assumed we would be evicted that night.”

    With his neat moustache and military bearing, Freeth, 37, is is not easily intimidated. Born in Sittingbourne, Kent, he comes from a line of military officers – his father, grandfather and great-grandfather all served in the Royal Artillery. He fell in love with Zimbabwe, where his family had moved after independence in 1980 when his father was hired to set up a staff training college for the national army.

    White House issues condemnation of Mugabe

    White House Warns Mugabe '****s' to Quit Violence as Opposition Leader Pulls Out of Election

    HARARE, Zimbabwe — The White House Sunday reportedly issued a stern warning Sunday that Zimbabwe's government and its "****s" halt election violence immediately, after opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai pulled out of a presidential run-off vote.

    "The government of Zimbabwe and its ****s must stop the violence now," White House spokesman Carlton Carroll said, the AFP reported.

    Opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai announced his withdrawl from this week's presidential runoff during a news conference in Zimbabwe's capital after thousands of militants loyal to President Robert Mugabe blockaded the site of the opposition's main campaign rally in a now routine pattern of intimidation.

    He claimed mounting violence and intimidation made it impossible to hold a credible election. Zimbabwe's government said the poll would go ahead.

    "We can't ask the people to cast their vote ... when that vote will cost their lives. We will no longer participate in this violent sham of an election," he said. "Mugabe has declared war, and we will not be part of that war."
