The Zimbabwean Circus Continues

In 2007, I interviewed political activist Roy Bennett after he had been exiled to South Africa. The tyrannical Robert Mugabe and his Zanu PF thugs ransacked and stole his home and farm. Bennett was tortured and imprisoned. Even some of his farm animals were brutalized.

Bennett returned to Zimbabwe a few days ago as a member of the opposition MDC. He was hoping to help form a unity government, but was arrested once again by Mugabe thugs. He is currently in a Zimbabwean prison.

Roy Bennett after being released from prison the first time. He was in jail for 15 months without a trial.

Here is the interview with Bennett from 2007.
