at least South Africa doesn't have these problems, the ruling party has a large majority.

One just wonders how things would pan out if another party dared to beat the ANC in a poll....

but i guess it's just best to stick my head in the sand on that one

They have also banned the cricket team from coming here as well. The will of the world and their neighbouring countries has turned against them in a big way.

As the headline states, that is why I believe Megabes reign will end shortly!!

This is anything but window dressing, he is on his way out this time

World Leaders Say They Will Reject Outcome of Zimbabwe Election, But Mugabe Stays Defiant
Tsvangirai says problems must be solved by negotiation as African nations call for postponement of run-off
International rejection of tomorrow's presidential run-off in Zimbabwe is mounting even before it is held, with the US, France and other nations saying they will not recognize the result.

Southern African countries called for a postponement of the poll, saying the outcome will not be credible because of political violence, at the end an emergency summit in Swaziland.

But divisions in the region were laid bare when South Africa's president, Thabo Mbeki declined to attend. Nonetheless, a growing number of African leaders have criticised the state-orchestrated violence against Mugabe's opponents and said the election will not be free.

US president George Bush last night called the run-off a "sham". His assistant secretary of state for Africa, Jendayi Frazer, said Washington will not recognize the outcome of Friday's ballot. "People were being beaten and losing their lives just to exercise their right to vote for their leadership, so we cannot, under these conditions, recognize the outcome if, in fact, this runoff goes forward."

France yesterday took a similar position, while Gordon Brown told the Commons that Britain would stand alongside African leaders who do not accept the legitimacy of the regime and the "criminal cabal" surrounding Mugabe.

"We want to see a peaceful transition as soon as possible. If we look back at the elections that did take place, it was clear Mugabe had lost those elections," the prime minister said.

Brown said the government was preparing intensified financial and travel restrictions against named members of the Zimbabwe administration. But Mugabe remained defiant, saying that tomorrow's election would go ahead.

The opposition Movement for Democratic Change leader, Morgan Tsvangirai, who pulled out of the ballot this week owing to the systematic violence against his supporters, briefly left his refuge inside the Dutch embassy in Harare yesterday to call for African leaders to oversee a transitional administration in Zimbabwe until genuine democracy can be established.

He called on the continent's leaders, meeting at an African Union summit in Egypt next week, to intervene in place of "talks, and talks about talks, that have been largely fruitless for several years".

"The time for action is now. The people and the country can wait no longer. We need to show leadership. What is important is that both parties must realize the country is burning, and the only way is to sit down and find a way out of it."

Tsvangirai declined to discuss details of such a government, saying they should be sorted out through negotiations.

"The election is not a solution," he said. "What is a solution is some sort of transitional process to address the critical issues facing the country. We are making proposals Mugabe has to accept."

Asked if his party had had contacts with the ruling Zanu-PF about the transition, Tsvangirai said: "Everyone is searching for a solution, including Zanu-PF."

He warned that the MDC would not have dealings with the government that emerges from Friday's election - although that did not rule out bilateral talks with the ruling party, the most likely route for negotiations.

Tsvangirai also said there could be no negotiations until a series of conditions were met: an end to the state-orchestrated violence, the lifting of the bar on international organizations delivering aid, the swearing-in of the new parliament - in which the MDC won a majority; and the release by the government of political prisoners including the MDC's secretary general, Tendai Biti.

In a statement to the Zimbabwe Times he added: We are proposing that the African Union facilitation team, comprising eminent Africans, set up a transitional period which takes into account the will of the people of Zimbabwe .

"The AU team would lead in the constituting and character of the transitional period. The transitional period would allow the country to heal. As the MDC, we have always said we will be magnanimous in our victory. Honest dialog among Zimbabweans is the only way forward. The MDC is a people's project; we value our county and our people.

The region's Roman Catholic bishops entered into the crisis yesterday saying that God's judgment awaits Mugabe, who is a Catholic, and his party.

"We warn that the atrocities and barbarism of Zanu-PF are being documented. Mr Mugabe's actions and those of his generals, their wives, his thugs supporters and the so-called 'war veterans' are offensive in the eyes of God. Judgment awaits," the Southern African catholic bishops' conference said in a statement.

Last week, Mugabe said that only God could remove him from power.

yes yes and what did the Catholic Church say about this or the rest of the world?

Mugabe (a Shona) sent his North Korean trained 5th Brigade to massacre the Matabele people, conservative estimates say 30000 people died


John Major's Govt gave him a Knighthood, no wonder the idiot thinks he can get away with murder as he has done so time and again

hypocrites all of them and this is why I say the current responses are window dressing

it is sickening to say the least

the hypocritical world

Tragedy comments from elsewhere

Too little too late. The damage is done.

A destroyed country, destroyed population, destroyed economy.

He killed everybody who opposed him, and even after the Matabeleland massacres, accolades, honourary degrees, and even knighthoods were bestowed on him.

The developed, free, and democratic world should hang their heads in shame, but then they always knew what is best for Africa.


and what exactly has Africa to show

Namibia - Virtualy a one party state.
Botswana - One party state.
Angola - a One party state run by a dictatorship, now even bought over the few leading opposition leaders.
Zimbabwe - a One party dictatorship and will remain so for time in memorial.
Zambia - a Joke totally dependent on donor aid, jumping to the tune of whoever pulls the purse strings.
Malawi - Same as Zambia, and total chaos.
DRC - Taken by Lauren Kabila over the barrel of a gun and then a very very dubious election saw his son elected as the new ruler.
Burundi - Still in turmoil.
Rwanda - Taken by force by a small minority ethnic group with American help and rigged elections therafter - out of fear nobody dare challenge the ruling regime.
Uganda - Rigged elections and oposition politics only allowed a token presence as long as they dont rock the boat.
Kenya - We saw the last fiasco, but at least a protege acceptable to Europe and America is in driving seat.
Gabon, Cameroon - dictatorships.
Nigeria - Farce elections, the last ballotpapers printed in SA were not even delivered from SA to Nigeria.
Ivory Coast - Conflict and mayhem with a European colonial power even delivering hardware to both warring sides of the conflict.

Sad Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe 'a hero', say African leaders

African leaders gathering for a summit have greeted President Robert Mugabe as a "hero", dashing hopes that Zimbabwe's regime would come under immediate international pressure.

Oh well ... at least Mbeki is actually publicly voicing his views

a tad late some would say

There is a wind of change sweeping Africa and democracy is crreping in, whether those blinkered enough not to admit it want to continue to live in the past.

Never mind eh!!

The old prejudices are often the most difficult to get rid of
OMG .. the record is still stuck
