from boing boing

"In the southern African nation of Zimbabwe, President Robert Mugabe has enacted a law granting state security agents full authority to surveil landline and mobile phones, postal mail and what little internet is available anyway, according to a government notice published on Friday.

The move comes as economic and state structures in the world's fastest shrinking economy approach the point of absolute collapse"
