“I am very frightened,”

said Patson Chipiro, head of the Zimbabwean opposition party in Mhondoro district, after learning about his wife's death by mutilation and fire.

“They want to kill me. But I have no alternative. My presence here as a leader is very important. If I leave, everyone else will leave. I intend to fight the battle, from here.”
