Has anyone heard from Sam? Her last post was on Aug. 16, and I don't like what I'm thinking.

I'm wondering if she's still in Scotland?

If she is, it must be so hard knowing her husband is still there risking jail and other terrible possiblities from the government. (If you can call it that)

Sam told me she was staying in Scotland for an extended period over that which was originally planned. I understand that elements of the RAF and our paratroops are present in SA if a rapid evacuation of UK citizens is required. The papers said there were about 20,000 UK citizens in Zimbabwe but that only covers a part of the white population.

Strange she hasn't posted though!

Just had a message from Sam, she's had computer problems in Scotland and hasn't been able to post anything. She returns to Zim on Friday.

Thanks so much Chris for that update. It's good to know she's trying to keep us informed in some way. We have come to care about her and her plight so much. I think we are affected by these turn of events because of her. It really makes it personal for us. We'll just have to go on keeping good thoughts and prayers for her until this mess is finally resolved.

If you want to read one perspective of the latest on the situation, click the link:
Zimbabwe Independent news - analysis of Land Reform Programme

excerpt --

"Government and farmers have been slugging it out in the courts since the land seizures started in 2000. Farmers, who maintain President Robert Mugabe’s scorched earth land policies are illegal and destructive in many aspects, have won a number of court victories against government since April 2000 when the High Court ruled that farm invasions were illegal. This has thrown government’s land grab programme into disarray....

To date close to 250 farmers accused of defying eviction orders have been arrested and taken to court. The farmers were granted different bail conditions ranging from $5 000 to $10 000 and will be appearing before the courts across the country on different dates beginning next week.

Magistrates have also worsened the muddle by giving contradictory rulings. Some have told farmers to remain on their properties pending the outcome of a Supreme Court ruling on the constitutionality of the eviction process, while others have advised them to leave immediately." by Dumisani Muleya/Augustine Mukaro

I wouldn't rely too much on rule of law in Zimbabwe at the moment.
