Zimbabwe Tragedy Continues

Morgan Tsvangirai, head of the Zimbabwean Movement for Democratic Change(MDC) finally decided it was a waste of time to once again attend a meeting with President Mugabe who refuses to compromise on key issues. Of course, if he tried attending it would require a passport for the opposition leader, who actually won the presidential race in March, and Mugabe was in no hurry to issue one. Most probably, Tsvangirai has come to the realization that Mugabe is too frightened to surrender power given that his cronies have stolen millions and fear an honest government would send them to jail. He has repeatedly attempted to compromise, but Mugabe will not surrender any key posts in the Cabinet, particularly any related to law and order.

The ball is in the court of the African community. Will they allow the people of Zimbabwe to be oppressed and brutalized or will they assert the principle of democracy? There is not much Morgan Tsvangirai can dooth
