ZimOnline reports the following in a report by Justin Muponda:
Last week congress capitulated to George Bush's drive to immitate Robert Mugabe. If we want to see where the U.S.A. is headed under Bush and Company, look to Zimbabwe. "Anti-terrorist" laws WILL be used against those with dissenting opinions. Try to attend a Bush rally with any sign, T-shirt or brochure expressing opposition to Bush's policies. Try to ask a serious question challenging him. We're already moving toward oppression.
President Robert Mugabe has signed a tough law allowing state agencies to pry into private mail and telephones, raising the stakes against opponents in a clear signal that the veteran leader is tightening repression as agitation grows against his rule that is largely blamed for plunging Zimbabwe into economic chaos, analysts said.
The government has defended the Interception of Communications Act saying it was in line with international trends to fight crime and ensure national security.
Woe unto congress for failing to protect constitutional rights of citizens. Cowards all!
