The Calm After the Political Storm in ZimbabweDecember 13, 2008
Bucking the trend about AfricaDecember 17, 2008
It appears all hands are now on deck to push towards a peace deal in Zimbabwe. As I said the other day, no amount of pressure seems to be helping with calls for President Robert Mugabe to resign. I hear that U.S. Secretary of State Condi Rice might get involved with the negotiations between the ruling ZANU PF party and the opposition Movement for Democratic Change(MDC). Good news indeed!
So, I repeat, it does not help to continue to ask for Mugabe to step down. My preference would be for him to stay and assist with any transition that might occur to usher in reconciliation and stability in the country.
Why cry over spilled milk in Zimbabwe?
