Update: The Ladies and Gentlement of Sokwanele’s “This is Zimbabwe” are back.

***

I just found out from Sokari at Black Looks that Zimbabwe’s Sokwenle group has neither posted on their blog, This is Zimbabwe, nor on the Sokwanele site, for six weeks.

Not only that, they do not answer their email.

This in the midst of a further crackdown by that idiot Mugabe on online communications, according to Zimbabwean Pundit. As we reported on the again-no-longer-accessible Civiblog-hosted Committee to Protect Bloggers archive, Mugabe enlisted Chinese help last year in blocking pirate radio stations. (Here is a Reporters Without Borders report.) The same censorship experts are possibly assisting in the online crackdown.

If you know what’s going on with Sokwanele, please tell us.
