Zimbabwe: prayer service for torture victims

 At least 100 torture victims are expected to converge at St Mary's Cathedral Church in Bulawayo for a prayer meeting for them this evening, the Zimbabwe Daily News reports today. The meeting, which is being organised by Christians Together for Justice and Peace, comes at a time when thousands of Zimbabweans have fallen victim to political violence. The organisation is an informal network of about 100 Bulawayo -based multi-denominational church leaders. The church has remained the only sanctuary where torture victims can get assistance from as most of the other institutions are failing to protect the citizens," the spokesperson for the organisation, Shari Eppel said at a Press conference in Harare yesterday. She said the torture victims are expected to come from every province of the country. source: Zimbabwe Daily News
