Mugabe critic sued for adultery

A prominent critic of President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Bulawayo, Pius Ncube, is being sued for alleged adultery. The lawsuit has been filed by the husband of a woman who worked as a secretary in the archbishop's office. Lawyers for Archbishop Ncube called the allegations an orchestrated attempt to discredit him.

The archbishop, who denies the allegations, has openly denounced Mr Mugabe as a "megalomaniac". Earlier this month in an interview with the BBC, he argued that a case could be made for the overthrow of the president. He has said the political and economic situation in Zimbabwe has reached "life-threatening proportions", and that regional political intervention was now needed. [More]

  • Even if this is true, it's irrelevent. The bishop is a brave man and absolutely right in going after the despicable Mugabe. What is the phrase against Donatism? Ex opera operans? I can't remember.
