"The Western countries must be serious, I just became a victim of what is supposed to be targeted measures against (President) Robert Mugabe and his inner circle. Wanted to pay application fees for a who is applying to study in Europe with my Zimbabwean Visa card but could not find an option to select Zimbabwe under Countries??????"

Mr Hwende yesterday confirmed originating the post but refused to comment further, saying he was not authorised to speak to the media.
