Zimbabwe's Elite Irked by Facebook Leaker 'Baba Jukwa'

As Americans reel from Edward Snowden's NSA revelations, Zimbabwe is currently embroiled in its own scandal over leaks: 'Baba Jukwa,' a member of the country's insular elite, has been spilling the beans on Facebook about President Robert Mugabe's election-rigging and the corruption of the ruling Zanu-PF party, according to South African news website News24.

If only more than 1 in 6 Zimbabweans had Internet access, it might make more of a difference. The nation's economy has been destroyed by the 89-year-old Mugabe over the past decade-and-a-half as he has clung to power, deploying violence against the political opposition.
