ZANU PF using soldiers, chiefs against MDC

from SWRadioAfrica:

The Constitutional Outreach program which was supposed to peacefully create a new people-driven constitution for Zimbabwe, has instead often brought little more than renewed violence against those perceived to be MDC supporters. ZANU PF has activated the same machinery used during elections in the past to intimidate opposition officials and supporters. This includes soldiers, the police, traditional chiefs, the youth militia and local thugs, who are paid for each assignment.

Reports of assaults, displacements, arrests and harassments are being received daily from around the country....

Reports on the ground confirm that many people are now too afraid to contribute freely at the outreach meetings....
