Does anyone else remember the rigged treason trial of Zimbabwean opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai? The state's case turned on tapes prepared by a so-called "political consultant" named Ari Ben-Menashe, who had filmed himself talking about a coup near Tsvangirai and then provided the tapes to the prosecution. It turned out that Ben-Menashe was an egregious fraud who was almost certainly in cahoots with the secret police from the word go, and was anyway a pathological liar who had doctored the video.
There's certainly quite a similarity in the counter-accusation launched by the mysterious Margaryan brothers of Kenya (that their main critic borrowed large sums of money from them "to finance the government's overthrow") - there's even a set of mystery tapes.
In current weirdness, the government car involved turns out to be a fake, whilst the opposition..no, the government...yes, the government tactically leaked the information that the opposition were accusing them of terrorism in order to bash them for playing the terrorism card...or something.
