From South Africa’s IOL News on (excerpts):
Harare — Anti-government groups in Zimbabwe began to tighten the screws on the ruling party on , calling for a tax boycott, a university class boycott and deciding to “test the waters” on political thuggery by staging an election rally near a flashpoint Harare suburb.
Another opposition party, the small Zimbabwe Union of Democrats (ZUD), Sunday urged Zimbabweans to refuse to pay tax until the government affords them their “taxpayers’ worth of goods and services.”
“Zimbabweans rank amongst the highest taxed people in the world,” said ZUD secretary-general Isaac Manyemba in a statement. “Of grave concern is the fact that the government has nothing to show for the punitive tax rates.”
He said the bulk of the taxes collected was used to further the fortunes of the ruling party.
