    If it was an Al Queda operative, then it would be another story. What about van Hoogenstraaten who gave Mugabe 3 mil quid for the elections? Really? Comes back to “who gives a toss”, doesn’t it?

    Basically this demonstrates the comparable differences between a civilized democratic society, which upholds the human rights and civil liberties of any persons, criminal or otherwise, citizen or not, living within their country, as a matter of law applied to equally all.

    As opposed the racially and ethnically offensive apartheid style (black empowerment, indigenisation) policies lawlessly imposed upon the people of Zimbabwe by the racist “black supremacist” Mugabe and his insidious Zanu-PF cronies as they drag the banana republic of Zimbabwe back in time 200 years.

    Without the rule of law, a country will spiral into the abyss of anarchy. Hey guess what that is exactly where Zimbabwe is heading right now, if fact the journey is well underway.
