Zimbabwe and South Africa

The President of South Africa seems to be part of the problem, not part of the solution.

"Mbeki is complicit in these totalitarian actions by Mugabe and the British Government must not let him get away with hiding behind a smokescreen of anti-colonialism."

"Miss Hoey, who chairs the all-party Zimbabwean parliamentary group, said that most agricultural and industrial sectors have collapsed under the onslaught of the regime's policies."

"Millions of pounds-worth of investment in good housing, small factories and machinery have been smashed. She said Zimbabwe was an even more sinister and dangerous country than when she visited it last time."

"Everything Mugabe's police and army do is done with virtually no media access and filming and reporting is perilous."
