Pro-democracy movements in Zimbabwe accuse Mbeki of dancing to the tune of President Robert Mugabe and his ruling party ZANU PF.
The National Spokesperson of the organisation Madock Chivasa said recently that any outcome of the talks which would not among others deliver a new people driven constitution for the people of Zimbabwe would be nothing but a preserve of ZANU PF hegemony.
As the NCA we are not going to recognize talks or leadership that will be delivered after the coming elections as long as the new constitution is not in place.
The NCA urges President Thabo Mbeki not to dance to the whims of President Mugabe and give a democratic process a chance. The NCA want to reiterate that any leader who is elected under a flawed process will not be legitimate to the people of Zimbabwe, said Chivasa..
Meanwhile MDC have warned President Mugabe who is accused of stealing the past three elections that they would boycott elections if a new constitution is not in place.
According to the Mbeki led talks under SADC mandate the election date was part of the discussions on those talks but Mugabe has already declared March as a month for election when no true reforms have been implemented.Â
Analysts argue that postponing the election date will be one of President Thabo Mbeki’s mammoth task as he will be tempering on President Mugabe’s feet and if he fails to do that Mugabe might further worsen the political crisis affecting the nation.
In the past months the Zimbabwe Election Support Network produced a report on the progress on election which proved that the country was by far from even reaching the SADC protocols on elections.Post published in: News
