State authorities have ordered foreign shop-owners to close their businesses by Jan. 1 unless they give 51 percent control to local citizens.  According to state media, owners who fail to comply will be arrested.

A top official of the black empowerment ministry said only Zimbabweans had the right to run shops in the country,

Laws compelling this were passed  in 2007.  Foreign shop owners have been criticized for taking retail trade opportunities from Zimbabwean traders by selling cheap imports.
Washington--Officials of the Democratic party have passed a law forcing all Americans to buy government-approved health insurance or pay a fine.  All existing health-insurance policies will be cancelled unless they offer free birth control, substance-abuse counseling and maternity benefits.

Officials shrugged off complaints from males that no health policies for men contained these provisions.

Democrats also ignored critics who complained that the law violated the Constitution since all revenue-raising bills are required to originate in the House, while this bill originated in the senate.  A Democrat spokeswoman laughed and dismissed the complaint as not being worthy of a response.

Republicans also charged that no member of congress had actually read the whole bill.  Democrats replied that this wasn't relevant since "it's the law" and that the courts would determine the provisions.
