In this show we mentioned:

President Robert Mugabe is reportedly making moves toallow him to help himself to private Foreign Currency Accounts. Tichaona Jakonya has likened the independent journalists in Zimbabwe to “weapons of mass destruction”.

Reserve Bank Governor Gideon Gono has begged the President to act urgently to stop farms invasions and to allow the farmers to grow food, or the country is heading for disaster In a typical Mugabe-esque reaction to Australia’s expansion of the banned Zimbabwean list, the people of down-under were accused of carrying out genocide against the aborigines and pushing them aside in their bid for control.

Mugabe has made public his feelings that UN envoys are in actual fact clandestine British agents.

Major-General Martin Chehondo 'issued a warning' at an army parade in the central town of Gweru , that supporters of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) would not be tolerated in military ranks.

Last week, Zimbabwe High Court Judge Yunus Omerjee dismissed an application by the 'rebel' faction of the MDC seeking to remove Tsvangirai as party leader.

So some white farmers in the Masvingo area have won a court order to repossess ‘seized’ farm equipment.
