"Human rights lawyer Otto Saki told VOA that the law interferes and undermines
the enjoyment of rights enshrined in the constitution and is a sign Mr. Mugabe
wants to consolidate his power by 'any means necessary or unnecessary.' But
Communications Minister Christopher Mushowe said Zimbabwe is not unique in the
world in passing such legislation, citing electronic eavesdropping programs in
the United States"
I am not going to make this a post about if the law is right or wrong. What I am going to make this about, is how we need to think in this country how the actions our government are used by other governments around the world, or against other governments around the world. When we stand for freedom, it gives groups in other countries a model to hold their governments to. When we fail to stand for freedom, it gives the governments reason that they should not stand for it either.
