A furious word-war has erupted over the pull-out of the MDC from the presidential run-off in Zimbabwe. Only time will tell whether Morgan Tsvangirai made the right decision and when he will judge it opportune to return to the hustings. It cannot have been an easy decision.

And in making such a move Tsvangirai and his party may also have done us all in Southern Africa, and perhaps in the whole continent, a great and lasting favour. For what Sadc, the AU and the international community have been effectively saying to the MDC is: “Gentlemen, this is Africa; make do with the situation and please just get on with this African-style election.” publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
