Zimbabwe: Of molesters and voters

Marko Phiri at the Kubatana blog draws a parallel between those that justify sexual harrassment to women by the way they look or dress, with the current political situation in Zimbabwe where “women and children have ‘invited’ the wrath of Zanu PF militias by simply voting for a party of their choice”. And he concludes by saying: If a woman can be fondled by a stranger in public for whatever reason (as if any is needed), if a voter can be clubbed to death on allegations they did not vote wisely, does that not scream for the total revisiting of what makes a superior being in the whole created order”
