BBC’s John Simpson On Manoeuvres With Robert Mugabe

It has been done with great brutality, but Robert Mugabe has achieved an extraordinary turnaround here…

The moral is clear: never underestimate Robert Mugabe’s ferocious determination to stay in power

His opponent, Morgan Tsvangirai, has been completely outmanoeuvred.

Just look at those big scars on Mr Tsvangirai’s head to see how he’s been out manoeuvred…

Using sjamboks, army belts and gun butts, the soldiers attacked Tsvangirai until he passed out. One of the soldiers poured cold water all over Tsvangirai to resuscitate him. Tsvangirai regained consciousness again at around 1:30 a.m…. One vicious woman was left to work on him. She removed an army belt from her waist and used it to assault Tsvangirai until he passed out again. ”
