Still di­rec­tion­less

Finweek English Edition - - Letters -

AF­TER a month of up­heavals, dif­fer­ences of opin­ion and uni­lat­eral de­ci­sions by Robert Mu­gabe (who is clearly try­ing to re­serve the most im­por­tant cab­i­net posts for his party) the Zim­babwe ship hasn’t yet left har­bour. For­mer Pres­i­dent Thabo Mbeki, now in his per­sonal role as SADC me­di­a­tor for peace and pros­per­ity in Zim­babwe, was again called in to try to defuse the cri­sis. THE MER­CURY blamed the lack of progress af­ter a month squarely on Mu­gabe’s ob­sti­nacy. The Star said Mbeki had of­ten been hood­winked by Mu­gabe’s many sub­terfuges in the past but must not let that hap­pen this time. Beeld said per­haps it’s time for the new ANC lead­er­ship and SA Pres­i­dent Kgalema Mot­lanthe to be­come in­volved and sup­port Mbeki’s ef­forts.
