The Wake of Vanport

HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) -- A prominent Zimbabwean rights activist has been granted bail after three months but says she's too ill to leave the hospital.
Jestina Mukoko was taken from her home in early December and held in an undisclosed location until being jailed Dec. 23. She's accused of plotting to overthrow President Robert Mugabe.
She testified she was tortured and she was taken to the hospital three weeks ago. Mukoko told the AP on Monday she was relieved she was "free'' but would remain hospitalized out of concern for her health. She gave no details.
Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai called for the release of Mukoko and other detainees to show Mugabe's commitment to the unity government. Only Mukoko and eight others were able to make bail of $600 cash plus a property deed.
