Zimbabwe: "The greatest fraud of 2005"

11/04/2005, For the third election in succession, the Robert Mugabe-led Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front (Zanu-PF) has thwarted the will of the people and retained power through rigged elections. This time it obtained a ’landslide’ - 78 out of the 120 seats contested.

Zimbabwe: Disastrous economic situation

10/08/2003, The economic situation around here is disasterous. Official figures for inflation are 340% but economic analysts say that the actual figure is over 400%. The government tampers with figures in order to hide the seriousness of the situation. Prices of basic commodities keep going up. Every new stock of goods has a new price sometimes double the old one. For example, the price of a loaf of bread went from Z$300 to Z$1 200 last month. The economic situation is worsened by the crippling foreign currency shortage. The value of the Zimbabwean dollar against other currencies is officially fixed at artificial levels by the government of Z$56 against the $US. This is the main cause of forex shortages and a thriving black market.

Zimbabwe: Mugabe clings to power

02/07/2003, By brute force, Robert Mugabe’s regime has for the moment survived the longest and most successful stay-away in Zimbabwe’s history. The ‘Final Push’, called by the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC), did not topple Mugabe, but the brutal suppression revealed the isolation of a regime with no support in the urban areas.
