Amnesty International cited a case on March 7, when three members of the Morgan Tsvangirai-led faction of the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) were ordered by intelligence officers to take down election posters.

According to Amnesty, the officials forced the opposition supporters to chew the posters and swallow them.

Zimbabwe, when will this long night come to an end?

Are the members of Mugabe's tribe getting all the perks?

Perks? They're getting all the FARMS. That's why there's no food.

I want to start a pool on how high inflation will go in Zimbabwe before Mugabe steps down or dies. I say 2,000,000%.

It can't last too much longer. Mugabe is 84. He's already beat his countrymens' life expectancy by fifty years.

inflation there is already so high- mugabe says that he intends to rule until he is 100 but once he is unable to keep giving perks to high ranking people in his party they'll kill him.
