David Mpatsi’s death should be sheeted home squarely to the Mugabe government. Not only should David not have been thrown in jail, but the conditions of his imprisonment only worsened his health. David was one of 17 of those jailed who was locked up in solitary confinement. While suffering from the horrible conditions that lie in store for all those jailed by the Mugabe regime, David suffered particularly acutely because of the lack of decent medical care while he was locked up. As the Zimbabwean comrades say, David was killed by the Government as surely as if it had placed a noose around his neck.
