Zimbabwe’s opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai has arrived back in his country after two months away.
He has returned to see if new talks – brokered by Zimbabwe’s neighbours – can revive a power-sharing deal with President Robert Mugabe. At Harare Airport,Tsvangirai was talking tough. He said his party would not be “bulldozed” into an agreement that doesn’t reflect the will of Zimbabwe’s people. The country is in a humanitarian crisis. Rampant inflation and a cholera epidemic have raised concerns about the regional impact of Zimbabwe’s meltdown. Followed last year’s disputed elections, Zimbabwe’s 84-year-old President Robert Mugabe signed an agreement on forming a unity government with Tsvangirai’s party. That was more than four months ago, but the pact quickly deadlocked over control of key ministries.
