Zimbabwe: high court permits churches to educate voters

 The Zimbabwe Supreme Court has struck down a law barring churches and selected civic organisations from carrying out voter-education campaigns. The Supreme Court action nullifies the General Laws Amendment Act passed in January. The law was viewed by critics as an attempt by President Robert Mugabe to maintain his grip on power as Zimbabwe prepares for a presidential election this weekend.
