In August, Rodrick Mukumbira, a Zimbabwean who had been working in Botswana for the Ngami Times, Agence France-Presse, and IRIN, was forced to leave the country after the government withdrew his work permits. Local press freedom organizations expressed fears that this may have been related to his reporting.
