His Skin Peels in a Zimbabwe Prison
Geoff Hill THE WASHINGTON TIMES
The Washington Times uses this headline... Zimbabwe Prison Mirrors Holocaust Scenes
I am uncomfortable using that headline... But if anything is similar it must be stopped. NOW!
Halfway through a 25-month sentence for theft, Brian Gumbo is literally rotting away - his skin peels because of malnutrition and the muscles in his legs have withered to the point where he can barely walk.
Mr. Gumbo, thought to be in his late 20s or early 30s, is one of several inmates videotaped through hidden cameras inside Zimbabwe's prisons.
The images, shared with The Washington Times, are of gaunt prisoners with protruding ribs reminiscent of just-freed Holocaust survivors or Muslim prisoners held by Serbian troops during the Bosnian war.
I Cannot express to you how much I want to rid the World of this evil.
