She said this is when \"youth\" as the infantry of Zimbabwe\'s ruling party is often called looking for her.
She said her baby boy was taken from the bed and fell on the cement floor and broke his leg.
Later, she stayed at home all day, with a screaming baby, afraid to move.
In the evening, when everything was quiet, she set off and could only take her upset child to the Harvest House at the opposition headquarters.
It took more than half a night on the 12-mile road.
The building was packed with refugees, but she went to the hospital.
Now, his calf sticks out a strange angle under his blue climbing suit and is wrapped in it too --
Plaster of Paris.
Her blanket was stolen and survived a single meal a day with her thin skirt and jacket hanging on her.
Her thin legs look like they will break.
Is her milk dry?
When she looked at her child, her nervous face softened and became beautiful again.
She said he only drank water for three days.
\"I hate Zimbabwe,\" she said . \"
