The Thursday February 21 edition of the Times newspaper reports the Zimbabwe Information Minister has said short-wave radios are illegal communications devices.

Reportedly hundreds of short-wave radios have been seized in house searches.

The Times story says that for the past eight years the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) has been distributing solar/ wind-up radios, manufactured in South Africa.
