Zimbabwe: demolitions continue

Sokwanele – Civil Action Support Group - posts on the continued harassement of Zimbabwe's poorest of the poor by the authorities and that demolitions are continuing, as out of desperation, displaced people return to the orignal sites of their homes to try and rebuild them again. The group reports that “Operation Garikai” (or “Hlalani Kuhle”) is a cruel deception, no more than window dressing, which to date has not provided one single dwelling to any of those whose homes and businesses were destroyed in the first brutal, unlawful, assault”.
