Petition Old Mutual to stop funding Zimbabwe's state media: “South African insurance giant, Old Mutual confirmed this week that it was a major shareholder in ZimPapers, the publishing group that produces some of Zimbabwe’s most vitriolic propaganda.”

    I think South Africa must make its intetions in Zimbabwe more clearer. Firstly it was quiet diplomacy which literally protected one of the most stubborn and notorious of all African dictators as he pillaged his country. Now a South African company is oiling Mugabe’s propaganda machinery. Surely Old Mutual can invest in thousands of other enterprises in its nothern neighbour.
