Bishop Pius Ncube Talks about Zimbabwe

Bishop of Zimbabwe talks to Time about the dangers of being a Bishop and speaking out against an oppressive government.

Here is My favorite part of the interview.
TIME: Are you not afraid?

Ncube: They do harass you in every way. They invent things about you. They say I am gay, which is far from the truth. This phone is tapped. They could kill me any time if they wanted to. They say that when you have 20 people together, one or two of them will be Mugabe's spies. He has infiltrated everywhere, even the Church. I don't care. I will say what I want to say. I will not be quietened. I am not their slave. I do get afraid. But there comes a time when you have to overcome that. I take a stand because I am convinced I am speaking the truth. And the church must always defend the poor.
