The Zimbabwean

This is Wilf Mbanga, the editor of "The Zimbabwean" who has produced a fine article on the current crisis in Zimbabwe which appears here on the "Open Democracy" Web-site. He concludes -

"The Zimbabwean people have spoken - and Robert Mugabe has refused to listen. Now, under circumstances of extreme and dangerous pressure, they are being asked to raise their voice again. It is an occasion for the world to stand with Zimbabweans in what is for them both a moment of democracy and a time of trial."

In the latest attempt to add to Mugabe's unannounced Presidential vote, the Zimbabwean police have now arrested five election officials claiming fraud.
