worse and worse

In Zimbabwe, police tear-gassed hundreds of protesters in Harare after they held a rally in a football stadium. They were demonstrating mainly against the parlous state of the economy; inflation is now thought to be over 50,000%, but the government has stopped counting. (from the Economist on-line, 24.01.08

As you can see, the news gets worse and worse...there have even been rumours of a civil war. As much as I would like to see the back of Mugabe, a war would certainly affect our friends at Matopo in the worst possible way.

I hope you will all join me in continuing our support for Matopo--they need it more than ever!
