of the Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) tried to gate crash
a ZCTU General Council Collective Bargaining Workshop in Mutare
on 16 October 2003.
The Police spies
wanted to attend the meeting but were denied entrance by the ZCTU
leaders and only left after they had satisfied themselves that the
meeting did not have a political agenda by going through all the
documents produced for the workshop.
