Zimbabwean police sergeant Alois Mabhunu has joined a large number of his countrymen in jail under the tyrannical rule of President Robert Mugabe. His crime, however, is rather unique: he used Mugabe’s private toilet. The murder detective was arrested for the offense despite the fact that there is no specific law of criminal commoding. However, in Mugabe’s paradise laws are of little import.
Mabhunu reportedly had to go badly and ignored security at the private privy at the annual Zimbabwe International Trade Fair (ZITF) in the western city of Bulawayo.
As the article below notes, Mugabe’s government has been imprisoning people for the crime of insulting the president, including Douglas Mwonzora, a leading member of the Movement for Democratic Change, who was arrested for looking up at a portrait of Mugabe and saying: “How are you, father? How is your health?”
