be to stop the orchestrated violence and abide by the rule of law,” said Thokozane Khupe, the MDC (Tsvangirai) vice president, who led the delegation to lobby African heads of State meeting at the 9th Ordinary Session of the AU to help step up international pressure on the Mugabe government.
“It is better for the African community to prevent any further recession into anarchy and violence than to have to send peacekeepers to Zimbabwe,” said Kwekwe legislator Blessing Chebundo, who was also part of the MDC delegation.
Khupe said the MDC supported targeted sanctions against Zanu (PF) leaders, but she called for coordinated pressure by the African Union to force Mugabe’s government to hold free and fair elections in March and to send a team of international monitors to ensure the poll is free and fair. – Chief Reporter
