Dora, 12, gang-raped by Mugabe's men for four hours

In the rape camps of Zimbabwe, young girls are horrifically abused - often to punish Mugabe's political opponents. Foreign Correspondent of the Year Christina Lamb meets the victims and reveals their anguish
'The game we are about to play needs music," the Zimbabwean police constable said to the 12-year old girl. But as he tossed a mattress on to the ground it was clear that it was no game that he was planning. For the next four hours the girl's mother and younger sisters, aged nine and seven, were forced to chant praises to Robert Mugabe and watch Dora being gang-raped by five "war veterans" and the policeman.

"Every time they stopped singing the policeman and war vets beat them with shamboks and sticks," said Dora, crying and clenching her hands repeatedly as she recalled the ordeal which took place behind her family hut in a village in the dark shadow of the Vumba mountains of Manicaland, in eastern Zimbabwe. "They kept thrusting themselves into me over and over again saying: 'This is the punishment for those of you who want to sell this country to Tony Blair and the whites'. When they had finished it hurt so much I couldn't walk."

Rape has become the latest weapon in Mugabe's war on his own population
Now in hiding, spending most of her nights in frightened wakefulness, she remembers feeling the rough breath on her face, the hands forcing apart her thighs, and "that animal thing" as she calls it slamming into her underfed body. Dora was raped because her father is a supporter of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change. He is not a candidate, not a party official, just a simple carpenter who had mistakenly believed that he lived in a country where he could vote for whom he liked.

Dora's story, as she tells it, started with a Land Rover full of war veterans drawing up at the door around 10pm one evening in June, while her father was away, and ended with her left bruised and bleeding at 2.30am. "There had been a bad luck owl in the msasa tree that day," she said, recalling hearing it in between passing out. But the real beginning of the horror can be traced back to March when her village voted against Mugabe in the presidential elections. For rape has become the latest weapon in Mugabe's war on his own population. Dora's echoing screams on the African night was a warning to all the other villagers as to what might happen to those who even think of defying the president again.

Dora is one of hundreds of young girls who are being raped in the fields and mountains of rural Zimbabwe every month as part of what human rights workers are calling a "systematic political cleansing of the population".

Many of the girls are taken to camps run by Mugabe's youth militia, the Green Bombers, a sinister parallel to the rape camps of Bosnian Muslim women established by Serb forces in the early 1990s. And with half the country facing starvation, more and more youths are being lured to join the militia by the prospect of food.

with 38 per cent of the population HIV positive, the rape is often the start of a death sentence
In Zimbabwe, though, there is an extra, fatal dimension to the ordeals that the women endure: with 38 per cent of the population HIV positive, the rape is often the start of a death sentence.

"We're seeing an enormous prevalence of rape and enough cases to say it's being used by the state as a political tool with women and girls being raped because they are wives, girlfriends or daughters of political activists," said Tony Reeler, the clinical director of the Amani Trust, a Harare-based organisation that monitors and treats torture victims. "There are also horrific cases of girls as young as 12 or 13 being taken off to militia camps, used and abused and kept in forced concubinage. But I suspect, as with Bosnia, the real extent of what is happening is going to take a hell of a long time to come out."
Rape goes unreported in many countries but more so in Africa, particularly in rural areas where a raped daughter is seen as bringing shame on the family and afterwards becomes hard to marry. The pressure to remain silent is even stronger in a repressive police state where the police are often the perpetrators. Dora's family did go to the police station only to be laughed at with the words: "We're not fools to arrest one of our colleagues."

Nor do many rape victims receive medical treatment. In Dora's case the local clinic had no drugs and the family did not have the money to take her to hospital, so she is being treated with traditional herbs. Her own dreams of becoming a nurse are in tatters as she is terrified that she may have been infected with the Aids virus.

In a month-long investigation, one of the most disturbing I have ever conducted in 15 years of foreign reporting, I and The Sunday Telegraph's photographer Justin Sutcliffe visited villages in the Zambezi valley, Matabeleland and Manicaland, interviewing rape victims and their families in secret locations.

We talked to a teacher beaten so badly that she had lost her baby, and a former militia member who had participated in the raping and pillaging intended to pacify the countryside. We found a population living in terror, some towns completely "cleansed" of all opposition. We spent a night in terror ourselves when our car broke down in a village in the Zambezi valley, 40 miles from the nearest telephone, leaving us to listen to chants of "Pasi ne murungu" ("Down with the white man") and other slogans of Mugabe's ruling Zanu-PF party coming from a group of men around a fire.

"We would be better off with only six million people, with our own people who support the liberation struggle."
Fear and hunger are what passes for life in much of Mugabe's Zimbabwe. In the capital Harare there is a facade of normality - workmen repaint the blue trolley shelter in the gleaming new airport terminal, the traffic lights work, and pavement cafes serve the best cappuccino in Africa. The roads are full of gleaming new BMWs, known as "Girlfriends of Ministers' cars", bought by government officials profiting from black market money speculation.

The only signs of anything amiss are the long snaking queues for bread, sugar and fuel, the absence of maize (previously the country's staple food) from all shops, and the number of people simply hanging around. Unemployment has now reached 70 per cent of the working population.

In the rural areas that Zimbabwe's Marxist president regards as his stronghold it is a different story. Furious that so many of "his" people voted against him in elections - which he knows very well he did not really win - and incensed by calls such as that last week from the Bush administration demanding a rerun, he has unleashed his forces to wreak revenge in the most horrible manner.

At his inauguration in April, the 78-year-old who has ruled the country since independence in 1980, warned the opposition: "We'll make them run if they haven't run before." Imagining his declaration of victory would bring an end to the violence which had dogged the campaign, no one then realised the lengths to which he was prepared to go.

Officials now speak of "taking the system back to zero" and of reducing the country's 12 million population in a chilling echo of what the Khmer Rouge did in Cambodia in the 1970s and seem to even be employing similar tactics of emptying cities and targeting teachers.

Last week Didymus Mutasa, the organisation secretary of Zanu-PF, said: "We would be better off with only six million people, with our own people who support the liberation struggle."

Mugabe has stationed two officers from his feared Central Intelligence Organisation in every village
With rural council elections due next month which the president has no intention of losing, the violence has re-started. What has changed is the focus on women and the blatant use of police along with youth militia who are supposed to be doing national service and call themselves "taliban".

The situation is particularly bad in Manicaland, or Eastern Highlands as the settlers called it, apparently reminded of Scotland by its misty mountains. In the town of Buhera, anyone who is against Mugabe has been forced to flee. Many have been served with court orders not allowing them back into the area until October 2, three days after the elections. In Chiminga, the court officials have fled because they had been beaten by Zanu-PF militia for granting bail to MDC members.

"Mugabe has no intention of being challenged again," said Roy Bennett, the opposition MP for Chimanimani in Manicaland. "He looks at anyone who doesn't support Zanu-PF as an enemy of the state who must be crushed using any means, and he has completely politicised the police."
The outside world has played into Mugabe's hands by focusing on the plight of the 4,300 white farmers and the bizarre attempts to destroy commercial agriculture at a time when half his population is threatened with starvation. Hundreds of white farmers have been arrested over the past 10 days for defying a government order to move off their land.

The other evil that he is perpetrating in the countryside is not easy to investigate. Mugabe has stationed two officers from his feared Central Intelligence Organisation in every village; merely talking to a murungu, or white man, can lead to interrogation or beatings. Driving around remote eastern and northern areas, not knowing who might be watching or what side they might be on is an eerie experience.

In areas such as Hwedza, where most of the farmers have been evicted, the war veterans who have taken over are setting fire to the fields to prepare them for traditional subsistence farming. Plumes of smoke dot the horizon and flames lick the side of the road - at times it seems as if the whole country is burning. Every so often a white homestead surrounded by red bougainvillea and jacaranda trees comes into view, a strange island amid the blackened land.

The villagers' greatest fear is being taken to one of the camps.
In almost every village where people were known to have voted against Mugabe, we pieced together the same story of beatings of teachers and wanton destruction of property. Everywhere we saw the charred skeletons of burnt bicycles, the main mode of transport of rural MDC workers.

"The Black Boots [police] burnt my house," said 47-year-old George, an MDC campaigner forced to flee Buhera two weeks ago. "We don't own much but they smashed all we had in front of my children, then urinated in the small amounts of sugar and flour we had left."
The villagers' greatest fear is being taken to one of the camps. They were set up before the elections to train the youth militia to harass the MDC and many remain in existence. Apparently funded from the Food to Work programme, under which youths are supposed to receive food aid for work such as road building, they form the centres for Mugabe's terror campaign.

We visited one of the most notorious at Bazeley River in Manicaland. On the main road outside the camp was a police roadblock, clearly designed to stop anyone getting near. With The Corrs blaring from our car stereo, however, they believed our story of being tourists lost in search of a particular mountain and incredibly let us through.

We reached the camp by crossing a narrow bridge and driving up a dirt track. The series of tents around a trestle table at which young men were helping themselves to breakfast looked unnervingly like a scout camp apart from the "Do Not Enter" sign painted angrily on the gate, the surly red-eyed men hanging around wearing T-shirts bearing the legend "The Third Chimurenga", after the liberation war, and pictures of Osama bin Laden.

15-year-old Priscilla was raped repeatedly for three days, then had her genitals burnt with a poker
It was here that 15-year-old Priscilla, whom I had interviewed in a safe house in Harare, was raped repeatedly for three days then had her genitals burnt with a poker. It was here, too, that Benjamin, a 32-year-old teacher, was badly beaten after having his house burnt down. "They accused me of repeating the word chinja [change - the opposition MDC election slogan] in lessons.

"They took me in to one of the tents and forced me to lie on my stomach and said they would keep beating me until I defecated. I told them I had already defecated in my pants but they said: 'No, you must defecate your whole intestines.' Finally they stopped and made me crawl in the mud. When they let me go, they said this is only a taste of what will happen to you."
A former member of the youth militia, who fled because he was so appalled at what he was being ordered to do and is now in hiding, agreed to talk to The Sunday Telegraph about what went on in the camp.
"I was desperate," he said. "I had lost my job in a fried chicken takeaway last November and have a wife and 13-month-old baby girl to support. So when Zanu-PF people came around our houses I joined. They said we would get Z$50,000 [about 600] but we didn't get any money, just food and beer.

"There were about 200 of us in the camp and we called ourselves 'the taliban'. Our doctrine was to be against the white man, he was our worst enemy, and our hero was bin Laden because of the way he stood up against the West.

"We were trained to be vigilant, always looking for opposition supporters, and were told if we saw anyone with an MDC T-shirt we must assault them with whips, catapults, steel bars. The idea was to instil fear in people so they would be frightened to vote and to take revenge against those who had.

"Then a couple of months ago they said it is the women who are behind this campaign to bring back white rule. They told us to take them to the bush, that they are daughters of dogs and coconuts, and to bring young ones back to the camp to service us. When I said we can't do this, that these are our sisters, they accused me of being a 'sell-out' and beat me."

"I went to the police and they said: 'You people voted for a nonsense party, why didn't you vote for Zanu-PF?' "
Few of the victims are prepared to talk about their experiences. One who did agree to be interviewed in a safe house in Mutare was a girl called Sara who looks younger than her 16 years. Sara had been left with her 12-year-old brother and orphaned seven-year-old twin cousins when her parents fled their village after numerous beatings and threats, believing that the children would be safer on their own.
"One night around midnight we were woken by banging on the door," she recalled. "There were about 25 men. They demanded to know where my parents were. I told them that they were away at a funeral but they refused to believe me.

"They took everything out of the cupboards, all our pots and plates, and started breaking them with iron bars. I begged them to stop but they said: 'You must pay the price for what your parents have done.' One of them asked me if I'd ever slept with a man. I said no, and he said: 'Today you start, come and show us the white in you.' He stuck his hand in my mouth to stop me screaming. When he had finished he peed on me."

In tears, she added: "I told my brother. We didn't know what to do, we were just children."

When Sara's father discovered what had happened he was outraged.

"I went to the police and they said: 'You people voted for a nonsense party, why didn't you vote for Zanu-PF?' "

Shaking his head, Sara's father insists: "This is not a local thing, it's from the top, from the president himself. This is a monster government doing monstrous things."

Zim cops detain 'rape camp' whistleblower

The following report appeared on the IOL website 29 August 2002:

Harare - Zimbabwean police raided the Harare offices on Thursday of the Amani Trust, which aids victims of political violence, and arrested the organisation's doctor who treats torture victims.

The raid took place hours after the Harare office of an independent radio production organisation, Voice of the People, was destroyed, allegedly by a bomb.

The gate to the Amani Trust's office in central Harare was locked on Thursday while police went through documents.

An administrator who asked not to be named said plainclothed officers of the police law and order section arrived at about 11.30am with a search warrant. While some officers searched the premises, others took Dr Frances Lovemore to the Harare central police station.

Lovemore was accompanied by her lawyer, he said. The administrator said he had not seen the search warrant and the officers conducting the search refused to say what they were looking for.

It followed weekend reports on research conducted by the trust which alleged that members of President Robert Mugabe's militia were raping young women suspected of supporting the opposition Movement for Democratic Change.

The trust, which was believed to have evidence of the Mugabe government's alleged campaign of violence and torture of its opponents, has regularly been accused by authorities of acting as an agent for Western powers. - Sapa

Update 2

Zim declares rights group 'illegal'

The following report appeared on the IOL website 14 November 2002:

The Zimbabwean government warned a leading human rights group its leaders faced arrest for failing to meet new registration regulations as a non-governmental organisation, state radio reported on Thursday.

The Amani Trust, which has compiled detailed reports of human rights violations and political violence in Zimbabwe has not registered with the government as they had been ordered to on September 13, the radio said.

The government accused the trust of conducting "clandestine operations to unseat it", which had been partly funded by Britain, the former colonial power, the radio reported.

In August, Amani director Frances Lovemore was charged with allegedly releasing false reports on torture and rape blamed on ruling party militants. She was freed and has yet to be tried.

Zimbabwe has been wracked by political violence Officials of the trust were not immediately available for comment.

At the time of the September 13 directive, local charities and human rights groups, including the Amani Trust, said they were registered under existing laws and planned to challenge the new rule on the grounds that it violated their constitutional right to freely carry out their activities.

Zimbabwe has been wracked by political violence and economic turmoil for the past two and a half years.

More than half the population of 12,5 million face hunger in the coming months after disruptions in the agricultural economy blamed on a drought and the government's seizure of thousands of commercial farms. - Sapa-AP

I don’t know what Nyarai is but I do acknowledge that there is probbaly room to improve the electorate trends. Perfecting that aspect of the game has never been my strong suit. I didn’t venture into any event momentum calculations as my objective was to prevent results that deviated significantly from those in reality. The ideal range would be 85 115 seats for both the main contenders with 110 their objective total. I was unable to tighten the game up enough to achieve this 19/20. If you think you can improve the mechanics of it be my guest and I’ll be happy to credit you.

And people comliapn about Bernanke & Greenspan! We cannot even begin to imagine the extent of human misery that is created by the total economic mismanagement, and systematic political repression of this totalitarian regime. Thank you for featuring an update on this very tragic situation. Like the recent posting on child prostitution in developing nations, it helps to be aware of these problems to ensure that international aide efforts receive funds to help to ameliorate such depravations and our international organizations such as the UN and World Bank stand up to such regimes rather than appointing such countries to the International Human Rights Commission.

I have had the privelage of living a sheltered and protected life. Thanks to the order of my country's government and the loving care of a wonderful christian family. I dont know anyone that was raped but what i do know is that the body is the sacred temple of God. The fact that man no longer has respect for his own body and for others is a disgrace unto God Himself. I believe that God will deal justly with those that defile His temple! And i also beleive that He shall deal with them using us, his servants. Its still disgusting what is happening in this world that He created..where have we gone wrong?

Isn't it disgusting. There are even some sick bastards in this forum asking for rape pics to be sent to their email? These days many people seem to think rape is entertainment..its so sad, that they can't get a willing date because they are losers. I hate the "leaders" of these stupid backwaters countries, do they really expect their people to like or respect them? I pray for these people to put their pain behind them and continue the fight for justice. These idiots have ruined peoples lives and for no good reason. they must pay! Any rapist I see? He'll get his nuts blown off and his itty bitty willy sliced into quaters and stuffed in his mouth.

To read what has been happening in this country is extremely frightening! This political cleansing of a people. Forcing them to give up their democratic right to vote by using such intense violence! I am not surprised that some of the soldiers who had joined balked from it! It is so very wrong and inhumane. But.. I must say to all the young victims and their families...God does not sleep and help is most definately on its way from International observers..watching and just waiting to make their move to help those in need.

Thank Jimmy Carter, Margaret Thatcher, Andrew Young and a host of other liberal assholes for letting this terrible thing happen to Rhodesia. Every time one of these hypocrites get a 'peace prize award', one should vomit immediately. Just imagine letting ONE t-shirt being seen in the open that read "All blacks out by 2005" ?? These animals/savages have no self control and again its back to tribe vs tribe and what did the civilizied world do back then? It conquered and set about rules and enforced them. Now with NO rules and a free-for-all enveloping most of the african continent, who is to blame? Is it the whites who gave in to butchers and heathens so easily or is it the black govts and the black terrorists who cannot control themselves mentally and physically? Why do you think there is a white brain drain imposed on RSA? Look at all of africa.....see any truly republics where freedom happens? Look from top to bottom......arabs to the southern tip of RSA. The handwriting is on the wall for whites. Get out now. Wherever and whenever. Stop the hanging on dreams. It ain't getting any better. Sad, sad, sad.........and by the way, two things I never put up with while with the Rho security forces, rape and killing/poaching of animals. Totally enforced. Rape has no excuse whatsoever.

William J. Gibboncryptoman2_at_yahoo.comOperation White Chimurega
I've heard that there is a plot afoot to invade Zimbabwe. Not by britain or the USA, but an international "concern" that is training 20,000 soldiers as part of an international brigade under the leadership of former Selous Scouts and memebers of the now disbanded South African 32 Regiment. I hope it's true. Bill Gibbons

Rochelle Flaggdawayne667_at_yahoo.comRape
It it is a shame when your child comes home and tells you that they have been raped. To know that they were forced to lay doewn with someone.

Taraanonymousrape
ppl that get raped should no do anything about it expect go tell a parent or the police "i have a friend that had sex and her mom found out and she thold her mom that he raped her." Dont lie about it . That will get you into trouble.

ZellAnonymoushorrible
That's how life goes... had to adapt and pretend it doesn't happen if you wish to live peacefully.

gdemogiandemo_at_hotmail.comZimbabwe
I have been working in Zimbabwe from 1986 to 1988 and I am still used to think that it is the better place I've ever been, or perhaps I will ever be. I am actually shocked and horryfied of what I read here and I am thinking why it is so easy to instill such a dreadful view of the human things in minds that did not seem to carry any type of predisposition to that. Why these things happen is a question with no answer to me. I only hope and pray that all of this will be soon over and that this fine Country will be again one of the better place in the world.

Nancy Dorrdorrnancy_at_yahoo.comChild Gang Rape
I was raped by my father and men he allowed to participate. One rape was filmed. These assaults went on through several years of my childhood. These rapes happened 40 years ago, but I live with the memories every day. I am going public because the shame and guilt I have carried all these years belongs on the men who perpetrated this horror on me. Rape is a hate crime....a violence against the female gender. I will be silent no more. Make me the face of child gang rape. I wish I could help the other little girls raped. What could I do?

Alexcutemooney116This is terrible
This is terrible all these policeman who are suppose2 be our friend comitting sucha crime to these innocent children...IT NEEDS TO BE STOPPED. right away!!!

anonAnonymoustragedy
What a world that we live in where those in desperate need are ignored and the selfish nature of human beings is reveiled. Mankind will pay for their tolerance of such atrocities to members of their own species. So comes judgement day. May God have mercy on us all and help ease the souls of those troubled.

Heedickmheedick_at_ntlworld.comthe new "Aparthiad"
Once, a while ago, the world waggled its finger at the bad, bad whites, and so, that aparthiad was abolished! In it's place is a far more evil aparthiad system, but now the world turns it's face away, as man's inhumanity against its own fellow man is unleashed, when will the world realise that GREED and CORRUPTION is the base of these children's new aparthied, will the world NOW turn away????

Wakanskawakanska_at_sbcglobal.netFalse mullahs
Read "Millionaire Mullahs", by a brilliant and brave Russian journalist who worked for Forbes magazine. This man was murdered for the truth. There is a conspiracy between Russian operatives and these mullahs to direct terrorist attacks at the US. Their motive in primarily economic and political. The goal is to break the US, much as the anarchists broke the Romanov dynasty of Russia, by monkeywrenching, chaos and activism, both legal and illegal.

Wakanskawakanska_at_sbcglobal.netComrade Mugabe
The problem is not with the race of man, but with what is in his mind and heart. It is a problem with evil. Evil takes all forms, and evil is now in Zimbabwe, ravaging the people. Woe to any who fall under the spell and lies of socialism and Marxism. This is what comes of it, and once it is in power, it will not release it's hold until many have been tortured and dead. Resist socialism and Marxism, which now ravage Africa and have operatives in the Middle East, working through false mullahs who mislead and lie to the faithful of Islam for the pay they get from their Marxist / socialist (probably Russian and Chinese) handlers. The truth will be known, but we have little time left.

Its sad to hear girls so tender are rapped. Perpetrators should be castrated. I am a mother of girls too. May the good lord bless all victims of such horrific experiences.

mostharmlesstychorensen@hotmail.comarnold jones
in my country we shoot this basterds dead. i think more that that man who's say that he used the pictures for study kickt on these pictures . in my case im been raped to and one thing i know is for sure, you can't finish your study with pictures from raped childeren or man, or women but i dont believe theres a study about this.

Maxwellproducegrower@yahoo.comarnold jones
Does anyone in their right mind believe that "arnold jones" is interested in rape photos for some sort of perverse study? Beadvised people, this piece of pig excrement is most likely the same type of individual who hangs around in internet chat rooms looking for a bit of "action" from 13 year old girls. A poser and a fraud through and through.

America can justify going into Iraq and other countries cause of people being mistreated. I am ashamed of my own government for not mentioning or even noticing this happening. We can protect those who don't want to be protected (Iraqie women) but yet we can't overstep ourselves for children? CHILDREN who are being treated like this. BAH someone in this world needs to get some BALLS and just kill the bastard in charge of all of this, and casterate any of those known to have participated in the rape of a child.

sdfgAnonymouswong
that iz so not right.where iz the love peeps!/!

Jay Abduljonath@hotmail.comMugabe
Arnold, you are out of your mind and I totally agree with the rest and I too wonder what studies are you in or wonder if you just enjoyed the picture. As for those poor girls, I am deeply sorry for what had happened and Mugabe should be raped till he split into two!

tonyreaAnonymousMugabe
He should be raped in the brain with a bullet.

GitaAnonymousrape
Shame on Arnold Jones. Why do you need the pictures of a poor raped kid? What do you want to study from it? I pray to god. Every girl should be rescued from the brutal ruler Mugabe. I really wish all the people are rescued and spend a peaceful life. May be they are suffering with hunger and poverty But it very painful to have this kind of torture with him. I can not do anything for them but the least, I will pray for them.

Wong, L.sillie008@yahoo.comgang rape
It is really sad that children are enduring horriable experiences like rape.

Takelyat71106 @yahoo.comRape
This is pretty sad and I hope that I never have to live in a place, where horrible things such as this happen. I mean, it could happen but to happen in such a sad and pointless way is ludicrous!

Jaco Straussfeedback@strauss.za.comdora 12 gang-raped
I don't think pictures of a child who got raped can contribute anything to any study. What on earth are you studying and what on earth can such tragic evidence contribute!?!?!?!

arnold jonesarnoldj@meyecompter.comdora 12 gang-raped
i would like to see rape pictures of dora being raped for a study plese send pictures of the rape. thank you

stevensstecol@bigfoot.comMugabe
The British Govt. put Mugabe in power even though they knew that the 1980 elections were won by intimidation, they just wanted out. The people of Zimbabwe were expendable in the big British political picture. Black and white have suffered for this abdication to mob rule by the British Govt. They as well as Mugabe should be held liable at the courts for human rights violations, since they knew what was coming.
