Zimbabwe Vigil Diary – 30th June 2007

Vigil supporters were pleased at the outcome of the cricket meeting in London. The International Cricket Council has launched an investigation into the finances of cricket in Zimbabwe because of the looting by the current bosses. We were going to hold a protest at the meeting at

the request of Free-Zim Youth, but they suddenly made an about-turn and called for everyone to accept the Zanu (PF) case (see Http://www.zimdaily.com/news/117/ARTICLE/1797/2007-06-27.html). We are puzzled as to why Free-Zim Youth feel that giving the Zimbabwean cricket authorities more money will help cricket on the ground in Zimbabwe. Surely they know it will just go into the pockets of Zanu (PF) cronies?
Vigil supporters were happy that our Caribbean brothers have called off their cricket tour to Zimbabwe. We are encouraged by their support, which shows that, despite their sympathy for Zimbabwe’s freedom struggle, they are no longer taken in by the Mugabe propaganda.
