Zimbabwe: Future of the MDC Hangs in the Balance

Zimbabwe's Movement for Democratic Change (MDC), the country's biggest opposition force, is in deep crisis.

At a conference expected soon, there is likely to be blood-letting between factions organised around two men, each of whom claims to be the party's leader. Morgan Tsvangirai and Gibson Sibanda, who have been the MDC's leader and deputy leader for more than five years, are now bitterly at odds. The immediate cause was a push by Tsvangirai for the party to boycott last year's senate elections. He argued that effective democracy no longer existed in Zimbabwe and that participation would simply prettify president Robert Mugabe's crimes.

Zimbabwe: 'We are Demanding an End to Violence, and Free and Fair Elections'

Issue section: 

A statement from those who are protesting against Robert Mugabe.

Revolutionary greetings, comrades.

On 15 February about 1,500 to 2,000 people attended the 'No to dictatorship - no to neoliberal poverty' demonstration. Earlier the High Court had refused to hear our urgent application against the police for banning the demonstration. However, the demonstration went ahead, but only in Harare--demonstrations in the other towns were cancelled on the day because of the heavy police presence.
