Radios confiscated in Zimbabwe
Report: Radios used to listen to VOA Studio 7 confiscated in Zimbabwe
Tony Saxon: "Zanu (PF) supporters and self-styled war veterans here
are reportedly moving door-to-door here in an effort to prevent people
listening to foreign radio broadcasts by confiscating their radios.
The people from Buhera said the move was to force people not to listen
to the radio reports on constitution making process that is expected
to begin next week. An [opposition] MDC T councillor Tapiwa Ngorima
said: 'All those listening to radio stations broadcasting from outside
the country are being told they will be identified, because they are
accused of influencing others to support the MDC in the area.' He said
there were some incidents reported to police in Buhera but there have
been no any arrests made so far. 'We have cases where our supporters
lost their radios after the Zanu (PF) and war veterans accused them of
listening to Studio 7. Their radios were forcibly confiscated. We have
made reports to the police in Buhera but nothing was done to bring the
perpetrators to book,' said the councillor. Studio 7 is broadcast
through the Short Wave from Voice of America."
