ACCORDING to press reports Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs minister Patrick Chinamasa has stated that the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions has not been invited to observe next week’s parliamentary vote as it has “bia
sed and preconceived ideas about the outcome of the elections”.
If that is the criteria then presumably any observers from South Africa’s African National Congress should be immediately sent home.
Mind you, only the brain-dead or the dishonest could pretend that there is anything remotely “free and fair” about the forthcoming election.
What price an honest and intelligent observer or two turning up?
