Water canons in Zimbabwe: for display purposes only

TOP del.icio.us

Reading Lenard’s blog on recent protests around the world made me think of our Zimbabwean context. I was out running over the weekend and besides seeing an increased presence and movement of police across Harare, I also noticed that the 2 of the 3 water canons that the Zimbabwe government has in its armory were zipping along the streets. And I thought that water canons in Zimbabwe are For Display Purposes Only. Because as Lenard points out, we’ve endured a lot of unemployment, corruption, and abuse of power but we limit our uprisings to grumbling into our lagers in the pub.
