The Mugabe regime is accusing Botswana of harbouring MDC activists who
are planning resistance operation, accusations that have been strongly
denied by Botswana Foreign Minister Phandu Skelemani.

Responding to the allegations of harbouring MDC militia camps,
Skelemani in a recent BBC interview said: It's a lie in fact and we
have invited them to come and they came last week – the Zimbabweans –
to the Troika which was meeting in Gaborone, and we said where is the
evidence? You know what they said? They said no, we have no evidence
here let's go to Harare. The evidence is the people who are
incarcerated in Harare. Those are the people who will tell the Troika
where the training camps are. Our attitude? No, No, no, show us the
camps in Botswana, you can't show us the camps in Harare. We want a
physical pointing out. That's where they are, they have no evidence.

MDC officials believe the false accusations could be linked to the abductions.
