Zim police beat up people in farming town


KAROI -- Armed police in the small farming town of Karoi, 204km north-west of Harare, went on the rampage on Monday beating up residents a few days after President Robert Mugabe’s ruling ZANU PF party won a controversial senate election marred by widespread voter apathy.

The residents who included some vendors, say they were beaten up and forced to roll in mud at gunpoint at the hands of the police who have been accused of serious human rights violations in the past.

It was not immediately clear why the police beat up the residents but one policeman was heard questioning one of the residents why they had not bothered to vote during the Saturday senate election....
