    Mugabe says voting against him is treachery

    The Australian has this report on Mugabe's comments:

    "All those who will vote for the (Movement for Democratic Change) are traitors," state radio quoted Mugabe as saying to a ruling Zanu PF party rally at Mutoko, 140km northeast of Harare. Similar comments by the President in the past have encouraged ruling-party and youth militia to take violent action against opposition supporters and candidates.
    If you remember, prior to those presidential elections in the US last year, some Bush regime supporters were also saying that their opposition were traitors. See all recent "A Logical Vocie" posts

    It's always the worst of the worst who use the word "traitor."
