While there has been a deafening silence from many African leaders, there has been evidence of increasing collective resistance, as described in the first 2 posts, among the courageous women and men of Zimbabwean civil society, over the past 6 weeks, to the GOZ's misrule. And the human costs of their resistance have been high. The Zimbabwe Association of Doctors for Human Rights (ZADHR), which examined the ZCTU labour leaders arrested and beaten following their September 13th march, said in a statement on October 4th that their injuries were consistent with torture adding it would submit a report to court to prove the police assaulted and tortured the union officials. Among those arrested and beaten were ZCTU president Lovemore Matombo and secretary-general Wellington Chibhebhe. Chibhebe was beaten unconscious and suffered head injuries, a broken arm and fingers.
