Zimbabwe Unravels As Mugabe Demands Total Power

Morgan Tsvangirai, opposition leader of the Movement for Democratic Change(MDC) threatened to pull out of the power-sharing deal with Robert Mugabe because the dictatorial president refuses to allow sharing of power that was part of the original agreement. He accused the president’s political party, the ZANU-PF of insisting on retaining all important positions in the Cabinet despite the fact their nation was now experiencing an unheard of 213,000,000 inflation percent. Somehow, the people who wrecked the Zimbabwean economy want to retain control of their disaster. “If they(ZANU-PF) do it that way, we have no right to be part of such an arrangement.. The people have suffered. but if it means suffering the more in order for them to g et what is at stake, then so be it..”

Tsvangirai is asking former president Mbeki of South Africa to come to Zmbabwe and try to persuade his good friend, Robert Mugabe, to act rationally. Mugabe fears surrendering control of the military, police or economic ministries since a new administration might take back what was stolen from the people of Zimbabwe.
