Tool of Imperialism

Robert Mugabe sank further into self-parody yesterday when he accused Britain of using the internet to recolonise the third world.

Mugabe who has partially succeeded in muzzling independent voices in his own country is not happy that criticisms of his policies continue abroad.

He said information technology was dominated “by a few countries in the selfish interests of those countries which are in quest of global dominance and hegemony”.

Here’s an example of information technology being used in a way Mugabe presumably doesn’t favour. I would have linked directly to the MDC’s home-page but for some reason The Page Cannot be Displayed. Let’s hope it’s a temporary technical problem.
