    This is barbaric behaviour by Zanu pf and its police force. The constitution allows for unfettered flow of information and freedom of choice. It takes our country back to the stoge-age. Come on Bob, we’re in the 21st century! We demand freedom, a legimate leader would not do this to his people. Because you are an illegitimate president, you live in perpertual fear of the people you purpport to lead. Stop arresting and killing opposition party members, stop gagging the press, stop stealing elections and stop this massive looting of the country’s wealth. Chibharanzi, ko kudzidza kwacho kwamunoti mwakaita kunozoshandei kana zviito zvenyu zviri this savagery? We’re fade up with your obsession with power.
