NEWSFLASH - MDF partitions Njubu Valley (Reuters)
From our correspondent in Mtwange
Details are coming in of an advance by regular units of the Mbote Defence Force into the de-militarized border zone along the disputed Njubu Valley. An unconfirmed eyewitness report has identified a number of mechanised units alongside columns of heavily armed infantry, which have linked up with groups of local tribal militia rebels supported by mobile special forces operating in the tribal areas.
The President of Mbote, His excellency Papi Mpongo, has made a public broadcast on MBC radio, declaring the liberation and annexation of the Njubu Valley:
'Today, we, the people of Mbote, have partitioned the Njubu Valley with MDF. No longer will our oppressed tribal brothers and sisters be intimidated by the colonial boot of Nbuto. I hereby declare the creation of a tribal militia liberation movement, the Peoples Volunteer Army, to fight alongside the MDF for their freedom'. Long live the PVA!
(in other words, I've worked out the armys for tomorrow's game and the MDF are attacking...just!)
