Mutambara happy with talks progress

HARARE - The MDC (Mutambara) National Working Committee believes tremendous progress has been made in the SADC talks on agreed agenda items such as a new constitution, reform of electoral, media and security laws, and says the talks have now entered a final and decisive stage.

Secretary general, Welshman Ncube, said in a statement that they “noted with great appreciation the role and commitment of President Mbeki and the South African government to the dialogue process and to assisting the leaders and people of Zimbabwe to resolve their differences”.

But, he said, the committee “noted with deep concern the various external forces which appear to have been mobilised and are in turn mobilising internal forces to derail the successful conclusion of the SADC dialogue.”

They also, noting the infancy and imperfections of African institutions as vehicles for the resolution of African conflicts, problems and challenges, appealed to the international community to respect African institutions and processes and to assist them to develop solid foundations as instruments for the resolution of African conflicts, problems and issues.
