Another item has been crossed off the list 'to do' in the run up to the elections by Mugabe.This week has seen 3 Newpaper Journalist's being hounded out by Mugabe's thugs. Colleagues Angus Shaw, Jan Raath and Brian Latham have all fled Zimbabwe, and for two of them leaving everything they hold dear and including their love of their country, before they were rounded up and put in prison, for doing their job from their offices known as The Old Gentleman's News Co-operative in trying to report what was going on in Zimbabwe. They had hoped to stay to cover up to and covering the elections at the end of March, but they had been tipped off that they were to be closed down by any means. So much for the freedom of the press, far less free speech for the people as well.
