Zimbabwe to tighten the screws

Africast : "HARARE, February 17 -- Zimbabwean authorities are planning constitutional reforms to introduce stringent screening for presidential candidates in the coming elections, a state newspaper reported Sunday.
The Sunday Mail quoted an unnamed government source as saying the move was to bar some 'presidential chancers' who were using legal loopholes to try their hand at taking over the reins of power from veteran President Robert Mugabe, in office since 1980.
'It seems anyone who wishes to participate in a presidential election can do so without the requisite structures as the law does not screen out such people,' the newspaper quoted the source as saying."
