Another Day on the Campaign Trail

For those who hoped that the modern world (by that I mean post-Neandrethal) would come to Zimbabwe anytime soon, this is a bit of a setback:

The men who pulled up in three white pickup trucks were looking for Patson Chipiro, head of the Zimbabwean opposition party in Mhondoro district. His wife, Dadirai, told them he was in Harare but would be back later in the day, and the men departed.

An hour later they were back. They grabbed Mrs Chipiro and chopped off one of her hands and both her feet. Then they threw her into her hut, locked the door and threw a petrol bomb through the window.

Wow; could lightning please strike and kill this parasite soon, please? Whatever happened to the good old days of CIA operatives working in the dead of night?
