Getting into Zimbabwe

Andrew Geoghegan, an ABC News journalist, marvels at how he has been allowed to enter Zimbabwe four times without arrest,

It’s easy to develop a false sense of security in Zimbabwe. Robert Mugabe’s notorious thugs work behind the scenes. It’s the police roadblocks that make me nervous. Most of the time the cops just want money. However, bribing a police officer is no easy task in Zimbabwe. Even a small bribe can amount to an arm-load of Zim dollars, making it somewhat obvious to anyone who cares to take notice. link

Geoghegan managed to keep a low profile in the country and interview opposition MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai in his garden in Harare’s northern suburbs.
