Worship harassment

Anglicans in Zimbabwe say some church leaders loyal to President Robert Mugabe pushed national police to interrupt worship services in and around Harare.

In December, police prevented eight parishes in Harare from worshiping in church buildings.

Chad Gandiya, bishop of the local diocese, said police "are interfering in our church services without restraint, and continue to defy existing court orders. The police are supposed to be protecting us, but they are the ones harassing us."
