Hi everyone,

As I said in my last message, the death threats and farm invasions continue.


Can you believe it? We are still receiving death threats and now the squatters are pegging on the farms once more. Over the weekend we received more death threats. At first we a little weary of bringing in the reaction unit as we have a house full of American clients and we did not want to scare them. The death threats were repeated with threats to burn us out and kill certain of the workers. We did get the reaction unit and kept them low profile away from the visitors and continued to have an escape plan in the ready in case anything should break. The workers have been so scared they have slept in the bush. (It is winter and the last few days have been very cold.) Today is Tuesday and nothing has happened, I believe it was a lemon. Thank goodness. I wish it would end. MDC are eager to sort out the problems in this area, but at the moment their hands are tied. Mugabe can rule by decree until the beginning of August. I believe that there will be a lot of opposition to him doing that as everybody is eager to get on with their life.

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 (or their representatives) 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 people in Zimbabwe. If you have seen something before, I apologise. Hopefully that will not be a regular occurrence. Any reports from respondents that are relayed to the mailing list will be done so anonymously.
