MDC sends SOS to African leaders

Zimbabwe is steadfastly drifting into chaos and the economy is threatened as a result of "an orchestrated campaign of violence" by President Robert Mugabe, the country's main opposition groups said here at the weekend.
"We are sending out an SOS signal. African leaders must tell Muga

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
