Tem­po­rary set­back (or not?)

Finweek English Edition - - Letters -

WHAT HAP­PENED AF­TER ALL the ex­cite­ment and praise – even for Pres­i­dent Thabo Mbeki for his “suc­cess­ful in­ter­ven­tion” in Zim­babwe – the free­dom dove has flown again and there’s re­newed un­cer­tainty over the role and fu­ture of Morgan Ts­van­gi­rai and his party. Ts­van­gi­rai was un­happy about, among oth­ers, the po­si­tion of third vice-pres­i­dent he was of­fered. The United Na­tions has re­con­firmed its sup­port for the ne­go­ti­a­tions. THE HER­ALD ex­pressed the hope that any set­back would be tem­po­rary, even though on the sur­face it seems real rec­on­cil­i­a­tion will be dif­fi­cult. Busi­ness Day said SA and the SADC shouldn’t bask too much in the glory of a pos­si­ble so­lu­tion to the Zim cri­sis be­cause if it hadn’t been for the omi­nous pres­ence of the West, things may have been dif­fer­ent.
