Andrew has written an excellent piece on the situation is Zimbabwe. I urge you to pop over and read it. It’s a shocking piece which focuses on the human element and the effect of Mugabe’s regime on the individuals in the country.

You would have to made of stone not to be deeply upset by this image. This is Blessing Mabhena, an 11 month old boy, whose legs were deliberately broken by Robert Mugabe’s thugs in order to punish his father for being an opposition councillor in Zimbabwe. You can read the full story here. I found myself just staring blankly at the computer screen for about ten minutes after reading this story, unsure of what to do next.

He also points to Bryan Mukandi’s new blog on, which is also worth checking out for his post on Zimbabwe.

I am just home from the Doctor and apparently I have a classic case of Gastroenteritis. It’s an awful sounding word for an awful affliction. I have pills and some odd sachets and I’m not allowed eat until tomorrow. I’m hungry, I’m in pain and I am feeling very sorry for myself.
