Tsvangirai left for the SADC Troika on Politics

tsvangiPresident Morgan Tsvangirai (Pictured) today left Zimbabwe for the SADC Troika on Politics, Defence and Security meeting to be held in Gaborone, Botswana.

The MDC has said the meeting will once again, be a golden opportunity for SADC, as the principal underwriter of the Global Political Agreement on behalf of the African Union, to exercise its authority and notice the tears of the people of Zimbabweans as they grieve over Robert Mugabes stubborn refusal to let the people off the edge of an extremely dangerous precipice.

The Party said for the past 10 years, Zanu PF and Robert Mugabe have shown downright disdain for African initiatives and African solutions to Zimbabwes recovery and a smooth return to legitimacy, with far-reaching consequences on our common humanity at home and in the neighbourhood. Zimbabweans are waiting on a knife edge with bated breath for rock-solid guarantees on their future, now that the political stalemate in Harare has reached a crescendo sufficient to blur tomorrow and to mash the little progress towards peace and security during the past two years.

Meanwhile, President Morgan Tsvangirai yesterday met with the president of the Chiefs Council of Zimbabwe, Chief Fortune Charumbira. The meeting was meant to find ways of improving relations with the chiefs following widespread reports that some chiefs were being abused by Zanu PF. President Tsvangirai told Chief Charumbira that the MDC respected the chiefs as custodians of the tradition and culture. He said the chiefs play an invaluable role in securing societal stability.

In Mashonaland Central, the MDC Bindura South district treasurer, Mary Sango who was acquitted in June on charges of undermining the President has received fresh summons to appear before a Bindura magistrate next week on Monday. Sango was arrested at her home in Nzvimbo, Chiweshe on charges that she had undermined the authority of the President during a Constitutional awareness meeting at Nzvimbo Community Hall in March. She appeared before the Bindura magistrates court but was acquitted in June after the magistrate ruled that she had no case to answer.

Together, united, winning ready for real change!
