On Monday, Mugabe issued a decree to allow police officers into polling stations – just two months after they were banned to ensure voting would be secret. Mugabe said the police could be allowed to help disabled people vote. But a spokesman said the police could be used to make people vote for Mr. Mugabe.
The Zimbabwe Election Support Network said the move reversed electoral reforms made in January, passed after consultations with the opposition. This stipulated that police officers had to remain at least 100 meters away from polling stations.
“Voters requiring assistance to cast their ballots should be able to designate a person of their choice to help them mark their ballot,” ZESN chairperson Noel Kututwa told the privately owned Financial Gazette newspaper.
The man will do anything to win, I bet the population of Zimbabwe will increase 20% just for these elections, even dead will vote for Mugabe. Something must happen and it must happen soon with this monster. I’m sure after he will be in prison we will find out that even Hitler was a small crook compared this monster.
James Bond and brother found in …Russia according to the Russian authorities! Ilya Zaslavsky is a manager at the TNK-BP oil joint venture, his brother Alexander head of the British Council’s Moscow Alumni club. The two, who have joint US and Russian citizenship, were gathering classified data for foreign firms, the FSB said.
The arrests are the latest in a series of incidents which has caused serious frictions between Russia and the UK. British Council work was curtailed last year in a row over the death of ex-security agent Alexander Litvinenko.
I’m wondering what ‘M’ says and how I found myself having two …007 posts the very same day!!!
The US goverment has offered Russia assurances over parts of a missile shield it wants to deploy in Europe, the Russian foreign minister has said. In an interview, Sergei Lavrov said the US had agreed to allow Moscow to monitor the missile protection system.
Why do I get the feeling that we are all the way back to the cold war? When I was young I remember doing special exersises at school for the day missiles would fallen upon us and the solutions was …cover under your desk!!!
However these comments came after high level bilateral discussions in Moscow.Russia has opposed US plans to establish missile defence installations in two central European countries.These currently include some interceptor missiles in Poland and an associated radar facility in the Czech Republic.The US says these are needed to counter a potential threat from Iran, though Moscow fears they could be used against Russia.
Is to wander if they tried to use all the gadgets as well!!! Bu the truth is that the police in Mexico have found a 007 style car used by the country’s drug cartels. The car was abandoned by the gang members after a shoot-out.
The police and army sent to fight Mexico’s drug cartels have seen most things – sophisticated rocket launchers, powerful assault rifles and gold-plated pistols. But in the northern state of Tamaulipas even they were shocked to come across a Jeep Grande Cherokee kitted out with its own anti-police gadgets.
The Mexican drug dealer will die …another day!
The protector of the faith and saint of the terror, Bin Laden made a new appearance this time threatening …EU; his excuse this time? No is not Iraq, no is not the Palestinians, is not justice or I don’t know what else but the bloody cartoons again!
The voice on it says the cartoon, re-published recently in all major Danish newspapers, was part of a crusade involving Pope Benedict XVI. The drawing, first published in 2005, depicts the Prophet Muhammad with a bomb in his turban. The voice on the audio has not yet been verified as belonging to Bin Laden.
Not to say that the man is a caricature and a cartoon of bad taste himself, he’s starting a war against …cartoonists? What? Daffy duck against Bin Laden?
