Zimbabwe’s tourism minister has appealed to activists in the
western provinces of Bulawayo to drop plans to protest against the North
Korean football team’s scheduled camp in the country during the World Cup.
The presence of the team from the dictatorship of President Kim Jong Il has
stirred up strong emotions over the massacre in the early 80s of an
estimated 20 000 civilians of the Ndebele speaking people of western
Zimbabwe, carried out by soldiers of the Zimbabwe army’s notorious Fifth
Brigade who were trained by North Korean instructors.
