Speaking at the launch of the Pan African Policy Dialogue Forum in Harare yesterday, President Tsvangirai said the Pan Africa agenda should be based on what we need to do to uplift one another as Africans and not to judge democracy, or wealth with the positioning of the next economy or political environment in this continent.
He said coalition governments are not a true reflection of the peoples will, adding that it started in Kenya, worsened in Zimbabwe and was bastardised in Ivory Coast and therefore should not be condoned if Africa were to develop. The MDC formed the inclusive government with Zanu PF in 2008 after Zanu PF was defeated in the 29 March 2008 elections.
In Manicaland Province, Malvern Mudiwa, the MDC Mutare West district chairperson who was facing charges of criminal nuisance, was on Thursday removed from remand after the state failed to furnish the court with evidence. Mudiwa was arrested last November on trumped up charges of advising the people of Chiadzwa in Marange to resist being relocated to pave way for diamond mining if they were not given compensation by the government.
Meanwhile, another MDC official in Bikita West, Masvingo province, Vincent Jaricha, has appeared in court on false charges of attempting to abduct Mary Nudhe. Nudhe is related to Chief Marozva who made the report to the police. However, Jaricha says he is innocent and the chief implicated him only to persecute him politically as the chief is hostile to MDC members in the area.
Jaricha is the MDC Information and Publicity secretary for Bikita West and will appear in court again on Monday. He was granted free bail at the Bikita Magistrates Court.
