Zimbabwe’s chief prosecutor has been arrested and is expected to appear in court today.
It’s being claimed that Johannes Tomana was arrested over the state’s withdrawal of charges against two men arrested in an alleged plot to bomb President Robert Mugabe’s dairy last month.
The details around this arrest are sketchy, but it certainly has Zimbabweans talking.
THE number of Zimbabweans who will need emergency food aid this year may have doubled or trebled from last year, Social Welfare Minister Prisca Mupfumira said.
The Southern African nation is facing its worst drought in almost two decades, which is withering crops and killing cattle as water sources run dry.
“From the indications so far, the amount of food aid may double or even treble since our last food assessment,” Ms Mupfumira said in an interview on Sunday in Harare. Last year, the government said about 1.5-million people needed emergency food, out of an estimated population of 12-million.
