Zimbabwe Does it like Rwanda

The snippet below is from Breaking News at the times. Interesting, because this is how the trouble in Rwanda started, with people on the radio saying, kill the cockroaches.

"The Media Monitoring Project Zimbabwe (MMPZ) said that over the weekend, Spot FM aired a number of "political songs" ahead of the country's coming Independence Day celebrations. One of them, "Mr Government" by Man Soul Jah, celebrated the government's land seizures and called for the decimation of perceived political sellouts.

The song said: "We are living like squatters in the land of our heritage... give me my spear so that I can kill the many sellouts in my forefathers' country."
