Water, water everywhere - not a drop to drink

Zimbabwe 'treason case dropped'

Mr Bennett, had only just returned to Zimbabwe.

Charges of treason against Zimbabwean politician Roy Bennett have now been dropped, and replaced with other allegations, his party says.

The new charge is conspiring to acquire arms with a view to disrupting essential services, the MDC said.

Mr Bennett, a deputy ministerial nominee, was arrested on Friday shortly before President Robert Mugabe swore in new ministers of the unity government.

His lawyer, Trust Maanda, said the treason case did not "hold water". (and even if it did hold water it would not be drinkable)
