Mugabe vows he would force elections
Harare - An independent daily newspaper critical of Zimbabwe's president says thieves raided its offices and stole computer hard drives and the editor's laptop.
Raphael Khumalo, chief executive at NewsDay said on Wednesday components and hard drives from 11 reporters' computers were removed in the raid Monday night.
No other items were stolen. In front page headlines last week, the paper called on President Robert Mugabe, 87, to step down, declaring “It's time to rest.”
Khumalo stopped short of accusing security agents of carrying out the raid but said it aimed at crippling the paper's operations ahead of World Press Freedom Day on May 3. - Sapa-AP
