Robert Mugabe, Marxist
What are the odds that the International Criminal Court will do something about this? Zimbabwean opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai was taken to surgery after being beaten following his arrest by Robert Mugabe's security forces. The Zimbabwe Pundit relates the torture practices of Mugabe's regime.
The methods of torture are beating all over the body with baton sticks, falanga (beating the feet), pulling their teeth so they become loose, tying hands and feet together and hanging them up like that while they beat them. As I receive many of them at a medical facility in the city, I see it with my own eyes and hear their stories first hand.
What must be remembered is that severe torture, including the falanga, has long term effects, not just psychologically but also physically. The generally unknown statistics are those torture victims who die a year or two later as a result of the torture.
