Zimbabwe bans protest march

Zimbabwe's opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) has vowed to ignore police warnings and go ahead with a protest rally against Robert Mugabe, the country's president.

The opposition protest planned for Wednesday has been banned by the police.

Tendai Biti, MDC secretary general, on Monday said: "We are proceeding with the march ... we're marching because our people are suffering ... there's no water, no electricity."

"The government is totally bereft and bankrupt of any capacity to govern this country. This government has failed."..
