The Zimbabwean government’s Central Intelligence Organization (CIO) has launched a serious crackdown on exiled Zimbabweans in South Africa and especially those in Limpopo.

Spokesperson for the opposition Movement for Democratic Change’s main w

ing led by Morgan Tsvangirai, Johannesburg district, Giyani Dube confirmed these developments and said this is meant to scare those with intentions of registering as voters in the forthcoming watershed 2008 polls,

“We urge all Zimbabweans in Limpopo to be vigilant and get extra careful about Zimbabwean police force who are masquerading with people alleging to be South African police helping them catch illegal Zimbabweans,” said Dube.

Dube also added that the operation named Mugabe tora vanhu vako was compromising on freedom of movement on Zimbabwe even in neighbouring country and said the MDC had gone to Limpopo to communicate with their structures to protect each other.

Gilbert Moyo a leading MDC activist in South Africa said the Mugabe regime was under intense pressure from exiles that are flooding Beibridge border post in droves as they move to register for elections hence needed to frustrate such developments,

“Mugabe knows he will loose next year elections hence he is desperate to stop exiles from going and register and has already started causing some disappearing in the border district and the move is tipped to extend even to central Johannesburg,” added Moyo.

The ruling ZANU PF is well known for its skills of doing damage before polls well in time, as it will be seeking to be legitimized by election observers of holding a free and fair election.

In the past, opposition leader Thokozani Khupe called the Africa Union leaders to send election observers well in time to assess voters’ registration and pre-election environment well in time than wait last minute to declare elections free and fair.
