The Reality of Zimbabwe

Before reading on and clicking on the links, if you can't handle graphic pictures of gore, blood, and general mutilation caused by violence to people, and I mean more than a bloody nose, then just don't do it. If you're at work it's probably not wise to click either.

Warning over, the editor of ConservativeHome, Tim Montgomerie, has published two images that were taken in Zimbabwe of what happens to someone that doesn't support Robert Mugabe. The person in question is called Memory, and she had her buttocks repeatedly thrashed by wooden poles because she was an Opposition supporter.

This sort of brutality really does put into perspective the very concept of 'torture'. We hear so very often that Guantanmo Bay is an affront to human rights. One thing is for sure though..... they don't do this.

ConservativeHome should be praised for publishing images that the mainstream media would, and to be honest, could not. If an example were needed where the Internet rises above the mainstream media in it's capacity it is something like this.

Wasn't expecting that Dizzy even though you warned. I was already shell shocked from the graphic description at what goes on from R4 PM this evening.

In the UK our voting slips (unique numbers) are traceable back to us in order to prevent election fraud. Is this also the case in Zimbabwe and obviously for other reasons?

It really did make my blood boil to hear that people not voting Mugabe are being beaten up and much worse. How does Mugabe know how they voted?

Words cannot express my disgust at the attack on this poor lady.

These pictures should be forwarded to every world leader and published as much as possible, albeit with a very strong warning before every showing.

Hopefully then sufficient people will force our world leaders to take action against the perpetrators and their leader, Robert Mugabe. He should be reserved the first available seat to the Hague and tried for crimes against humanity.

Remember South Africa, How Prosperous it was,
Now it's under the Communist ANC, look at it now,
this is where we are headed unless we solve this problem.Currently there are around 25,000 Murders per year in south Africa.
Significant numbers of which are against the Africaans population who now face extinction.

South Africa and Rhodesia used to be Major Economies !!!!
