Just watched a report on TV3 news on the Zimbabwe election. There are very short queues, and police at the polling boths “helping” people cast their votes.
They had a guy holding up a t-shirt from an opposition member who died, covered soaked in blood with several holes. They even showed a 4 year old who had been beaten when his mother was kidnapped – she was still missing.
They finished by calling Mugabe “deluded and dangerous”.
From what the wife is hearing on Rhema, the situation has turned drasticly. Before the last vote, people discussed politics openly, now no one dare suggest they would vote for anyone other than Mugabe. “Meeting” are held late into the night with attendance compulsory. It’s very quickly moving towards a North Korea model, with the last vestiges of open democracy being stripped away.
