Hi everyone,

Farmer Tony Oates was shot dead at 7.30 am, June 1st, on his farm 40 miles NW of Harare. BBC News reported the death this morning, but said it was unclear if this was a "political" murder -- as if this matters. The BBC Web site still does not have details published on their Web site at the time of sending this.

This is currently a manually administered mailing list. To subscribe or unsubscribe, send your request to DELETED. Personal requests for removal will be carried out immediately. Requests from governmental, political or press organisations will be treated less favourably. The purpose of this list is not necessarily to redistribute published news reports. Rather, it is intended to distribute reports from or directly affecting those people in Zimbabwe. If you have seen something before, I apologise. Hopefully that will not be a regular occurrence.
