This is unreal. Look at these photos of prisoners starving in Zimbabwean jails.  The documentary to which they refer was aired by the South African national broadcaster SABC on their Special Assignment news programme. 

The video above can be found in its original context at the website.  I wish I could find the video for the full length news piece.  Please comment if you know where I can see the full show.

You will not be surprised to know that Zimbabwean officials slated the footage as false and blamed the expose on the prison warders. [link]

I need a new label for Zimbabwe really.  It is not war or genocide, just gross violations of human rights.  “Zimbabwe” will have to suffice as a label for now.

  1. Have a look on Zoopy ( - not sure if you will find the vid you are looking for, but a quick search on Zimbabwe brought up a whole bunch of vids that you may also find interesting :)

  2. Thank for the link V! I had not heard of Zoopy before - does it have less censorship than YouTube or something?
