The international aid group CARE International said the Zimbabwean government has halted its operations in the country for allegedly campaigning for the opposition. CARE International's Africa communications director Kenneth Walker said Tuesday that at a meeting on Friday with Social Welfare Minister Nicholas Goche the group was ordered to suspend activities immediately. Walker said the suspension was pending an investigation into alleged political activity by staff members in support of the opposition before March 29 elections. Walker said Tuesday that the organization "categorically" denies it encourages or tolerates political activity by staff. The organization provides aid to about 500,000 Zimbabweans.
