Damning top-secret intelligence documents that expose President Robert Mugabe’s plans to rig the forthcoming election and crush his political rivals have been handed to The Mail on Sunday. The dossier reveals in astonishing detail how Mugabe is plotting to steal millions of votes with massive and systematic ballot-rigging combined with widespread intimidation by party thugs. His tactics, along with details of massive funding from named British, Chinese and African backers, are disclosed in highly confidential papers written for his closest aides. They were obtained from intelligence sources who risked their lives to expose the covert campaign to keep 89-year-old Mugabe and his military cabal in power.
The documents explain how “unfavourable voting outcomes” for Zanu PF party will be “countered” for a multi-million-dollar fee to an Israeli company that has been helping Mugabe for a decade.
They also show how Mugabe’s desperate bid to retain power in the nation he has ravaged during 33 years of repressive misrule is being aided by the Chinese government, fellow African dictators and secretive diamond mining firms.
Ominously, the leaked papers reveal the recruitment of armed militia and talk of the need for “disciplinary action to enemy leaders”, saying the use of “absolute neutralisation of the enemy … is recommended when necessary”.
