Tsivangirai to save Zim?

Morgan Tsivangirai is on his way home.
Harare – Zimbabwe’s Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) leader Morgan Tsvangirai and war veterans leader Christopher Mutsvangwa reportedly flew back home from South Africa yesterday.According to the privately-owned NewsDay newspaper, this came as reports indicated that both Tsvangirai and Mutsvangwa were “ready to enter negotiations to form a transitional government with former vice president Emmerson Mnangagwa”. Tsvangirai and Mutsvangwa had both been in South Africa on different missions, the report said.

The Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF) yesterday announced that it had taken over the country and was keeping the country’s president Robert Mugabe and his family under guard at his home as the military was getting rid of the “criminals around Mugabe”. On Monday the ZDF warned the 93-year-old leader that it would intervene if he continued purging party veterans in a bid to see his wife, Grace Mugabe, become his successor.
