SO WHAT'S old Robert Mugabe

SO WHAT'S old Robert Mugabe been up to lately? You'll never guess ...

Hidden from a world whose gaze has been fixed on Iraq, a full-scale reign of terror has been unleashed on opponents of the Zimbabwean President, Robert Mugabe.

Hundreds, if not thousands, of Zimbabweans were arrested and tortured as Mr Mugabe, apparently taking advantage of the lull in international scrutiny, stepped up his campaign of repression during the three weeks of the United States' war on Saddam Hussein.

Hello, United Nations? Hello? You're the guys who stop these things, right? Could've fixed Iraq if only you had the time, yes? Well, here's your chance to prove yourselves.

Let's see you remove Mugabe.

Within three weeks.
