We had Chieft Felix Ndiweni and Lord Jonny Oates in attendance today. They discussed the problems with political intimidation in Zimbabwe. Lord Oats cited Job Sikhala and other Political prisoners in Zimbabwe regarding detention without trial etc.
Lord Oates later publish a supporting Tweet which we have publised here on the right.
Chief Ndiweni also reported some disturbing news;
"because I attended the event today, the 23 villagers were all visited yesterday to report to the police and courts this Tuesday for "not finishing their community service". They were informed if the Chief, myself, keeps a 'low-profile' nothing will happen to the villagers.
So yet more of the underhand coercion that is employed by the regime of Zanu PF and its corruption of the Rule of Law.
This event is a prelude to the Full Petition to be handed over to the British Prime Minister on the 16th March at 2:00pm BST - see the event page CLICK HERE
