Hundreds of Zimbabwe’s notorious youth militia, nicknamed the “green bombers”, are fleeing to South Africa because they say they too are being beaten and starved, and are tired of “killing for nothing”….One youth said he fled Zimbabwe after being forced to take part in the murder of his uncle, a supporter of the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC)….Yet another said he fled to South Africa after being instructed to murder his father, an MDC supporter….They come from the hundreds of youth militia training camps which have sprung up in Zimbabwe, many at secondary schools where pupils are forced to take part in activities or risk death. [Sunday Independent (South Africa), 3/8/03]
