Alleged political arson

from the VOA.

Officials of the Movement for Democratic Change in Zimbabwe's eastern Manicaland province have accused militia loyal to the former ruling ZANU-PF party of burning the home of the party's provincial treasurer in Makoni South district last weekend.

The officials of the MDC formation led by prime minister-designate Morgan Tsvangirai said the arson followed a rally in the area which was attended by more than 2,000 people.

They said party treasurer Laina Mutape spent four months in hiding in Mozambique after fleeing the political violence that seared the province during the approach to the June 27 presidential run-off election, only to resurface in late September after the signature of a power-sharing agreement between ZANU-PF and the two MDC formations.

The MDC officials said that after her return she was summoned by a village headman named Razemba who wanted to fine her for belonging to the opposition, but she refused..

Again, not press neutrality has popped up again...the actual headline reads:
Despite Power-Sharing Process, Political Arson Alleged In Zimbabwe Province

the English phrase to describe this type of cluenessless is "speak no evil see no evil hear no evil"
