ANYWAY, FARE THEE WELL THOU GREAT MAN!" Radical Soldier of Zimbabwe!

EVEN MORE ON THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT KENNEDY!

PLEASE CLICK ON HEADER FOR MORE LINKS!


Son Of JFK Conspirator Drops New Bombshell Revelations
Costner was set to make documentary on Hunt's confession, before Miami mafia stepped in, E. Howard believed government had sabotaged his wife's plane
Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet
Thursday, May 3, 2007
 
 
As the explosive revelation of E. Howard Hunt's deathbed confession, in which the former CIA agent and Watergate conspirator admits that he was part of a CIA conspiracy to assassinate JFK, continues to rage across the Internet, the establishment media remains almost mute on what is undoubtedly one of the biggest stories of the decade.
Saint John Hunt, E. Howard Hunt's oldest son, joined Alex Jones yesterday to drop new bombshells about his father's story. Click here to listen.
Hunt was first made aware of what his father knew about the events of November 22nd 1963 when he came into receipt of hand-written memos that outlined the birth of the plot to kill JFK in Miami where it was discussed that a coup needed to take place in order to topple Kennedy and save the CIA from being splintered into a thousand pieces, as JFK had promised.
Saint John then opened his mailbox one January morning in 2004 to discover an unlabeled cassette tape on which his father details the identity of the individuals that were involved in the actual assassination of JFK.
 
E. Howard Hunt names numerous individuals with both direct and indirect CIA connections as having played a role in the assassination of Kennedy, while describing himself as a "bench warmer" in the plot. Saint John Hunt agreed that the use of this term indicates that Hunt was willing to play a larger role in the murder conspiracy had he been required, but was primarily used in an oversight role.
Hunt alleges on the tape that then Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson was involved in the planning of the assassination and in the cover-up, stating that LBJ, "Had an almost maniacal urge to become president, he regarded JFK as an obstacle to achieving that."

Saint John Hunt.
In the Alex Jones Show interview, Hunt reveals how Kevin Costner, star of the JFK movie, had shared a mutual friend with E. Howard Hunt and had subsequently visited Hunt in Miami in the interests of producing a documentary film based on Hunt's knowledge of the plot.
"Kevin Costner flies down and is introduced to my father by this mutual friend and Kevin just blurted out, 'so who killed JFK'? My father's jaw dropped and he turned around and looked at his wife and said, 'what did he say'?"
"So the whole thing just kind of blew up in its face and that was the end of that," said Hunt.
Hunt said that Costner had become "somewhat of a conspiracy enthusiast" after having made the JFK movie and was very interested in starting a project based on E. Howard Hunt's revelations.
"What my father devised was a code and a key to give Mr. Costner the relevant information without naming the names," said Hunt, "He listed out a chain of command and a timeline series of events and things that took place along with the most important players in the plot."
Costner considered the information to be "dynamite stuff," but elements of the "Miami mafia" derailed the project and the documentary never got off the ground.
Saint John Hunt also revealed for the first time that E. Howard Hunt thought that the Chicago plane crash that killed his wife in 1972 was not an accident. Investigators discovered at least $10,000 dollars in Dorothy Hunt's luggage, money that Saint John Hunt alleges was Nixon campaign funds used to payoff the families of the Watergate burglars to keep them quiet about the involvement of the Nixon White House in the Watergate break-in and cover-up.
"Later on in his life at one of these bedside confessions....tears started welling up in his eyes and he said, 'you know Saint I was so deeply concerned that what they did to your mother they could have done to you children' and that caused the hair on my neck to stand up - that was the first disclosure from my father that he thought there was something else going on besides sheer pilot error," said Hunt.
Eyewitnesses reported that the plane exploded above treetop level before it had even hit the runway.
Hunt said that "at least 20-25 FBI members," as well as numerous DIA agents were at the scene of the crash within minutes before rescue personnel had even arrived, and that this fact was attested to in a letter sent by the head of the Chicago FBI to investigator Sherman Skolnick.
Hunt cited numerous coincidences surrounding the aftermath of the crash, including Nixon's appointment of his henchman, Egil Krough, to the National Transportation Safety Board which investigates plane crashes, the very day after the incident.
When asked about the photos of the "three tramps" that were arrested on the scene of the JFK murder but were later ordered released, Hunt agreed that they likely showed his father and the two other key conspirators.
"As my father's son, every time I look at that comparison photo between the tramps and my father - it looks like my father to me," said Hunt.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hunt also said that he was reasonably confident that one of the other tramps was CIA operative Frank Sturgis, who his father had also named as a key member of the murder plot.
Hunt said that his father was not one of the shooters but was more of a manager of the plot on a command level, but was later "hung out to dry" by the CIA and the government.
Asked why Hunt became a willing conspirator in the plot to murder JFK, Hunt responded,"Within intelligence circles, he felt that it was an imperative situation that President Kennedy not be allowed to serve in that office for any longer because there was a lot of crucial things coming down, there was the Vietnam war, there was also the anger and the threats Kennedy had made to splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces."
Hunt also said that his father eventually desired to become the director of the CIA and Kennedy was a direct obstacle to that goal.
Hunt concluded by agreeing that his father's legacy was that of a patriotic American who was manipulated and twisted by people like LBJ and Nixon, later to be deserted and have his family torn apart by these same criminals.
E. Howard Hunt finally redeemed himself shortly before his death by blowing the whistle on the JFK murder plot, but now there is a fresh attempt to bury this information on behalf of the compromised and cowardly establishment media, who have afforded this bombshell story almost no attention at all while lavishly devoting coverage to the mindlessness of Britney Spears' comeback and radio host Don Imus' off-hand comments.
Once again the responsibility lies with alternative media and the Internet to make sure E. Howard Hunt's story is heard.

EXILED ZIMBABWEANS PRINT A "ONCE-OFF" COPY OF THE "DAILY NEWS!"

Amnesty Int'l publishes version of The Daily News
 
ex www.talkzimbabwe.com 8 May, 2007.

Geoffrey Nyarota - founder and former editor-in-chief of the The Daily News
Geoffrey Nyarota - founder and former editor-in-chief of the The Daily News
 

EXILED Zimbabwean journalists and researchers published a one-off issue of the banned and closed newspaper, The Daily News dedicated to covering the current state of Zimbabwe's media on Press Freedom Day.

The paper aptly named The Daily News in Exile is a six-page report of violence, repression, and struggle in the troubled country.

Focussing mainly on the Zanu PF government's clamp down on freedom of expression, Geoffrey Nyarota (founder and former editor-in-chief of the The Daily News and now editor of the online paper - thezimbabwetimes.com) writes about "his experience as a Zimbabwean newsman and his fears for the colleagues he was forced to leave behind."

Other contributors to the special edition are Sandra Nyaira (former political correspondent with The Daily News), Nyasha Nyakunu, (Research and Information Officer for the Media Institute of Southern Africa) and Simeon Mawanza, researcher on Zimbabwe with Amnesty International.

The edition tells the story of The Daily News, from its founding in 1999 up to the time it stopped publishing on February 6 2004.

When it eventually closed in 2004, it had risen to become the nation's leading independent news source, despite the bombing of its printing press, the arrest of its staff, the occupation of its offices by police, and constant harassment by state monitors.

The Daily News in Exilecarries the slogan "Telling It Like It Is For World Press Freedom Day" (May 3). It carries detailed reports, statistics, editorials, cartoons, and photographs that recount recent and historical press freedom violations in Zimbabwe.

The paper was published by the Amnesty International Irish Section, and is written by Geoffrey Nyarota (the founder and former editor-in-chief of The Daily News), Sandra Nyaira (a correpondent for The Daily News), and researchers Nyasha Nyakunu and Simeon Mawanza.

WE ZIMBOS SOMETIMES BEHAVE LIKE LITTLE CHILDREN!

You talk about Amnesty for Mugabe!
 
Did he ask for it?
 
Mugabe and his fellow Mafia friends are "on top of the world!"
 
They "inherited" millions of hactres of well-prepared land and farm-houses and they read about inflation only in the newspapers!
 
They have the milk, the meat and even diamonds etc.....ALL FREEE!!!
 
They do not pay for transport to anywhere!
 
Its all Government fuel!
 
MUGABE AND ZANU-PF CAN CONTINUE FOR ANOTHER 20 YEARS!
 
If they had any guilt about destroying The Economy , they would have called for some Conference of all Political Players already!
 
Now you ask another Political Viper to sort out your problems for you!
 
He is busy doing his best to "crush" his own "rivals" -  THE ZULUS!
 
He is busy trying to remove a name....just a name from a road named after Mr Mangosuthu Buthelezi!
 
Where is magnanimity?
 
Is it not completely stupid to "start" a man who is quiet?
 
Mandela had made Buthelezi a Minister of Home Affairs and at certain times made him Acting President when both he and Mr Mbeki went eg to the States!
 
Now came a Robert Mugabe!
 
ZIMBOS LETS NOT BEHAVE OR THINK LIKE CHILDREN!
 
Our people are suffering acutely and we cannot afford these jokes!
 
You Zimbos wake up!
 
You are your own liberators!
 
FORGET ABOUT THESE TREACHEROUS SO-CALLED TALKS!
 
FORGET ABOUT THABO MBEKI!
 
WAKE UP!
 
You will remember I said these things!

BRO KUTHULA MATSHAZI REPLIES THE RADICAL!

Hi Rev. Mufaro Hove,

It's good to hear from you after a long while.

You say, "…the problems besetting our beloved Zimbabwe are far greater than just Mr Blair, the land issue (which is very legitimate and had to be resolved) and the racism of a greater majority of the white people (which also is not in dispute at all!)". Why are you talking about Blair? I was very specifically arguing about why we shouldn't re-invent Tsvangirai.

When I read your letter I realised that you are frustrated because it seems I do not tow your line as you expect me to, as you said, "I've tried my best to show you". As I have always said Radical, do not force people to accept your ideas. People will always have their views on issues. It's not a scandal to disagree. If I am guilty of having a passion for criticising Tsvangirai (which is based on sound facts) then it's equally okay for you to spill out your passion against President Mugabe. No one condemns you as you do to other people when they hold different opinions on these matters. Its sad that you do not realise the simple fact that you are as passionate for Mugabe and yet you try and stand up to admonish me. Isn't that hypocritical?

You say, "Tsvangirai may be as ugly or as dull or whatever any intellectual like yourself may label him but he is our only hope!" That's your problem. Because you see him as your only hope then you do not want him to stand scrutiny. I am sure you wouldn't want to have a president who has not been scrutinised. If you want, then fine, but I do not, hence my scrutiny of Tsvangirai.

You say, "I started writing myself hoping characters like you could see the picture!" That's the problem. You were so convinced in your mind that you would go out, tell people your story and hope that they would consume it passively. No Radical. There are so many pictures out there and even if we see your picture, we might decide to change it for us to accept it.

You say, "THE STORY IS MUCH BIGGER THAN YOUR PROGRAMMED INTELLECTUAL MIND SEEMS TO GRASP!" You assume that I am programmed, well fine. And you are not? I am surprised why you would even waste your time talking to programmed minds? Are you really going to attempt to waste your time talking to programmed minds? You never cease to amaze!

You say, "I love to be "corrected" where I am wrong!" – defensive, in the know how and very confrontational".
I wonder why you put corrected in quotes? Maybe you are suggesting that you are never wrong.

"THE ONLY WAY FORWARD IS THE CONVENING OF A TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION COMMISSION LIKE THE ONE THAT WAS DONE HERE IN RSA WHERE I AM AT THE MOMENT!" Why do you think that the mere convening of this body would end all our problems? It beats me. Or you are trying to say this commission might be one way to deal with a certain specific issue?

OPEN LETTER TO BRO KUTHULA MATSHAZI!

I've posted this letter on  www.zimfinalpush.blogspot.com and will post your reply unedited when you reply!
 
#########################################################
 
6th May, 2007
 
Dear beloved Brother K Matshazi,
 
I've been communicating with you for the past four years in various Forums!
 
I've tried my best to show you that the problems besetting our beloved Zimbabwe are far greater than just Mr Blair, the land issue (which is very legitimate and had to be resolved) and the racism of a greater majority of the white people (which also is not in dispute at all!)
 
What surprises me about you is your dedication to attacking  Mr Morgan Tsvangirai with a passion more vicious than even Robert Mugabe's.
 
In your latest article,
 
 
 you sadistically attack him with your usual passion!
 
But my dear brother, you forget that Zimbabwe's problems did not begin with Mr Blair and the Land Issue or with the emergence of your Arch-Enemy, Morgan Tsvangirai and the MDC!
 
Ask Dr Joshua Nkomo
 
 
and then ask the Rev Ndabaningi Sithole
 
 
Many victims of Robert Mugabe fortunately wrote books, letters etc before they passed on!
 
The MDC has a lot of members who were part of ZANU-PF at very high levels and many still pretend to be ZANU-PF but pray that Mr Morgan Tsvangirai "soldiers" on!
 
Tsvangirai may be as ugly or as dull or whatever any intellectual like yourself may label him but he is our only hope!
 
What we are tired of is the evil Dictatorship of Robert Mugabe!
 
Every problem which you are "concentrating on" at the moment will and must be solved but only after Robert Mugabe is safely locked up somewhere!
 
You come from Matabeleland!
 
Please refresh yourself by reading the Catholic Report on the Atrocities committed by the so-called Fifth Brigade" at your own home area (http://gukurahundi.blogspot.com/2007/01/compiled-by-catholic-commission-for.html)
 
Please also ask your sweet beloved President Robert Mugabe (or is he Malawian Matibili) to reply my letter to him (http://dearmrrobertmugabe.blogspot.com/2006/11/is-robert-mugabe-master-assassin.html) or try to reply on his behalf!
 
Ask his girl-friend Oppah to assist you because she was there at the deaths of Tongogara, Moven Mahachi, William Ndangana, Zororo Duri and many more brothers who died in mysterious car accidents!
 
Your programmed mind-set will ask:
 
What has that got do with the problems besetting Zim at the moment?
 
GOOD QUESTION!
 
We will not allow Mugabe-Matibili to escape judgement!
 
Then the corruption and misappropriation of Zim moneys eg when Leo Mugabe and Kofi Annan's son swindled the building of Harare International Airport of millions of US $!
 
Please kindly read my article on "brave writers" required at (http://zimfinalpush.blogspot.com/2006/10/appeal-to-all-journalists-and-writers.html)
 
I started writing myself hoping characters like you could see the picture!
 
I'm still not discouraged!
 
Please read my own experiences of the 16th of June, 1984 at Kadoma where we killed Ndebeles like yourself for the sole reason that they were either ZAPU or we suspected they were ZAPU and hence were "dissidents"! (http://zimfinalpush.blogspot.com/2007/03/memories-and-thoughts-of-former-zanu-pf.html)
 
What I'm trying to say Bro Kuthula Matshazi is:
 
THE STORY IS MUCH BIGGER THAN YOUR PROGRAMMED INTELLECTUAL MIND SEEMS TO GRASP!
 
We rigged the Elections, Kuthula!
 
From 2000 to today...we rig Elections Kuthula!
 
Read my article "YES WE RIGGED AND STILL RIG THE ELECTIONS IN ZIMBABWE!" (http://zimgossiper.blogspot.com/2007/04/full-submission-on-rigging-of-zim.html)
 
Please try and represent Robert and ZANU-PF and challenge me!
 
I love to be "corrected" where I am wrong!
 
Bro Kuthula, Blair and Bush we will approach when we have sorted out a lot of "in-house" issues!
 
THE ONLY WAY FORWARD IS THE CONVENING OF A TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION COMMISSION LIKE THE ONE THAT WAS DONE HERE IN RSA WHERE I AM AT THE MOMENT!
 
 
 
Awaiting your speedy reply,
 
Your brother in the Zimbabwean story,
 
Rev Mufaro Stig Hove.
 
 
 
Cell: 0791463039 RSA.
 
 
 
P/S:
 
DO YOU KNOW HOW I LOST MY JOB AT Z.E.S.A. (which I loved so religiously!)
 
PLEASE READ THE LETTER WHICH MADE ME GET FIRED BY ZESA MANAGEMENT AT THE INSISTENCE OF Dr SIDNEY GATA.
 
 
I THEN WON THE CASE AT THE LABOUR COURT AS YOU PERSONALLY KNOW BUT THEY WOULD NOT TAKE ME BACK!

"MUGABE SEEKS MARTYRDOM!" (VERY FRIGHTENING, SOBERING THOUGHT!

Mugabe the martyr

 
The pan-African movement was an important movement in the continent's recent history.  The idea that Africans, not only in Africa but world-wide, would unite to wrest away the continent's fortunes from European imperialists or Cold War-era superpowers in order to usher in a new, united Africa that acts on its own accord and benefits from its own actions is a truly noble thing.
But in the post-Cold War period, with the Western powers now largely ignoring Africa, the pan-African movement seems to be losing its way.  Anyone who does not believe this fact should pick up the May issue of the New African magazine, the long-standing, respected publication of the pan-Africanist movement, and they will be convinced.  The issue amounts to nothing less than a full, unadulterated sponsorship of Robert Mugabe's failed regime in Zimbabwe and it includes at its zenith an interview, filled with loaded, softball questions, of Mugabe himself with the magazine's editor Baffour Ankomah.  In addition to the interview, page after page of a 'sponsored supplement'  (sponsored, of course, by Zimbabwe's Ministry of Information and Publicity) paints the country's main opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai as a violent instigator who essentially earned the beating that he received in March at the hands of Mugabe's police force by being a puppet of the West.  Other articles take great pains to show that Mugabe actually enjoys wide-ranging support among the people of Zimbabwe.  It also blames the country's 2,200% inflation rate and 80% unemployment rate entirely on the ruthless sanctions put into place by the United Kingdom and the United States.  The supplement ends with a laughable quote made by Mugabe during his address last month at a gathering that marked the twenty-seventh year of Zimbabwe's independence where he congratulates his citizens for refusing to be "re-colonized" and, in typical Mugabe fashion, continues on to rail against the British government.
There is no mention of the massive food shortages, and resulting starvation, that has occurred since Mugabe's disastrous land redistribution policy began seven years ago.  The shortages, of course, are blamed on drought and sanctions.  There is no mention of the countless electoral irregularities that have occurred in Zimbabwe.  There is no mention of the brutal sweep that Mugabe's thugs made through Harare recently that amounted to the destruction of hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses of Zimbabwe's people.  There is plenty of talk about the Southern African Development Community's recent summit in Tanzania that resulted in what amounts to a shocking endorsement of Mugabe and his regime's practices.  There is also plenty of discussion about the secret backroom dealings of the US and British governments, ruthlessly trying to undermine Mugabe's poor, peaceful, government despite the fact that it only wants what is best for its citizens.
Let's concede that Zimbabwe's situation might in fact be more complicated than what is regularly presented in the Western press.  Its current troubles may be caused by a number of issues, it is fine to recognize that fact and it is fine to try to present both sides of the story.  But when a nation's "democratically" elected leader, who has been in power for twenty-seven years, presides over a government that has the highest inflation rate in the world, one of the highest unemployment rates in the world, and the lowest life-expectancy in the world and, at the same time, is facing extreme food shortages that will likely result in the death of large numbers of its population, regularly ignores the rulings of the judicial branch of its government, suppresses freedom of the media, is continuously accused of human rights abuses by a wide range of governments and nongovernmental organizations, has been accused of rigging elections by multiple sources, and openly beats and tortures political opponents, that, in a nutshell, is the definition of a failed state.  How would it be possible for a leader of such a failed state to hold any popularity at all unless it was through deception and tyrannical means?  It is simply impossible.
Now, even if it is conceded that Mugabe isn't entirely to blame for the situation in Zimbabwe (and that would be a lot to concede), even if we agree that the West has to share some of the blame, how could anybody or any media outlet advance the notion, in 2007, that Mugabe is a freedom fighting victim of Western imperialism?  How could anyone say that Mugabe really just wants what is best for the people of Zimbabwe and that if it wasn't for Tony Blair and George W. Bush and the evil meddling of their governments this would be the golden age of Zimbabwe?
It is a sad indication of the status of the pan-Africanist movement today when one of its most important media outlets decides to accept such an obviously flawed and dangerous argument.  It is ironic too that Mugabe's argument is, in the end, diametrically opposed to the well-being of Zimbabwe's people, African people, the very thing that the pan-Africanists should be fighting hardest to protect.

URGENT "STATE OF THE NATION ADDRESS" FROM THE OFFICE OF THE EXECUTIVE PRESIDENT!

"STATE OF THE NATION" ADDRESS BY YOUR PRESIDENT!



I think there is a bit of confusion in our beloved country of Zimbabwe today!

Who ever said I won the Presidential Elections of 2002?

I never said so!

All I said was Tsvangirai's Election Petitions are "frivolous and vexatious."

I also pleaded with all patriots to "recognize" me as the Executive President.

I am the only person who can keep this country of Zimbabwe together!

If I removed myself from the top seat, the country will degenerate into chaos (racialism, tribalism, regionalism and all the negatives you can think of!)

Now we are in this whole mess because you simply refused to do the obvious- JUST RECOGNIZE ME. PERIOD!

Do you honestly think Tsvangirai can run this country?

I'm very disappointed with you, my fellow countrymen!

Running a country is a very complicated, delicate task!

You do your best and you are still accused of not doing your best!

WHO REALLY COULD HAVE MANAGED THIS ECONOMY BETTER THAN ME?

Now about the so-called rigging and the so-called-violence!

Your focus should be on the major issues!

Would we really stand by and allow Mr Blair to re-colonize our country, take away our Sovereignty and take over all our resources?

Would you allow someone to take your wife and you just stood by?

Please lets be very serious, Ladies and Gentlemen, Comrades and Friends!

About assassinations:be very careful!

This may break the whole Nation apart!

Who killed Cde Hebert Chitepo?

So why do you ask who killed General Josiah Magama Tongogara?

About the so-called "Truth and Reconciliation Commission!"

Where and when do we start?

Who will remain without blood on his hands?

Do you know how Dr Parerenyatwa died? Was it Smith's men or was it an internal struggle?

So will you raise the dead to ask them to testify?

Then last but not least: where in the world are "perfect people"?

The words "rigging", "assassinations" etc are English words!

Are they Shona words?

MUTIKWANIRE! (STOP THIS LUNACY!)

Please recognize me, rally behind me as your God-given father and lets move forward and re-build our Nation!

About the unfortunate isolated incidents in the Southern part of our country (the so-called "Gukurahundi Massacres"), please lets not open old wounds!

The Ndebeles can be very naive if they think we have forgotten their vicious raids against our peace-loving Shona people in the 1890s!

Please let all bye-gones be bye-gones!

MAY THE GOOD LORD ABOVE BE WITH YOU ALL!

Yours Faithfully,

ME.

Zimbabwe: Clinics Close Down as Economic Crisis Deepens!

Gweru

After more than 50 years of serving the community, Rockford Clinic in Gweru, in Zimbabwe's central province of Midlands, shut down two months ago when the last trained nurse quit - a symptom of the wider crisis facing rural health services.

"Many people, including a substantial number of people who now hold high positions in government, were born in and treated at Rockford Clinic, but the [health] ministry had to close it down after it went for a long time with only one qualified nurse and assistants picked from the nearby villages," said Amos Magenga, 65, who lived close to the clinic, about 90km southeast of Gweru.


The operational woes faced by the clinic are all too familiar in Zimbabwe: a shortage of nursing staff and drugs, dilapidated buildings and equipment, and even clean water in short supply - the inevitable result of a record inflation rate of 2,200 percent, and a crippling shortage of foreign exchange.

"These days it's virtually useless to seek help from these health centres, they can't even provide painkillers that one can easily obtain over the counter in a shop," Topona Mangwende, 60, told IRIN.

"Health delivery inevitably suffers when the economy deteriorates to the extent that we are seeing in this country," said Innocent Makwiramiti, an economist and past chief executive of the Zimbabwe National Chamber of Commerce. "The government is so preoccupied with finding solutions to the economic meltdown that social services like health are now almost forgotten."

According to the United Nations Population Fund, "Women and children continue to be particularly at risk as the situation continues to worsen. Maternal and neonatal mortality has spiked in recent years as access to basic health services and critical obstetric care has declined."

Rural communities are hardest hit because they are the least developed and poorest regions of the country, Makwiramiti said.

A consequence of the crisis is that traditional medicine is enjoying a resurgence among Zimbabweans unable to afford orthodox treatment. "Because of the poor state of clinics and hospitals we are being forced to adopt desperate measures to save our lives when we fall sick," said Mangwende.

When his stomach began to "mysteriously" swell a year ago, he turned to a traditional healer who claimed he had been bewitched and needed to have the evil spirits exorcised - a treatment option that failed.

Gordon Chavhunduka, president of the Zimbabwe National Traditional Healers Association, acknowledged the problem of fake healers, but said members of his association were playing a vital role in solving Zimbabwe's medical crisis. Around 80 percent of Zimbabweans are believed to use traditional medicine.

"More and more people in both rural and urban areas are turning to traditional healers because they cannot get much help from hospitals and clinics," Chavhunduka told IRIN. "We hold regular meetings and workshops with the people to educate them on the advantages of using traditional medicine, and what also makes us popular is that we are more affordable."

The country's political and economic crises, and one of the world's highest rates of HIV infection, has seen Zimbabwe tumble to a ranking of 151 out of 177 countries in the United Nation's Development Programme Human Development Index.
