Zimbabwe private radio 'jammed'.

Parliamentary elections are due to take place on 31 March.
SW Radio Africa, a private radio station broadcasting to Zimbabwe, said its broadcasts from the UK were being jammed by the government. Listeners in Zimbabwe have not been able to receive the station for a week, station founder Gerry Jackson said. "Our communications provider said they have rarely experienced such efficient jamming," she added. The government denies the accusations, a state run newspaper reports. Only state-controlled media are allowed to broadcast in Zimbabwe. Ms Jackson set up a radio station in Harare in 2000 but it was immediately closed down by the police.
