Zimbabwe: Motlanthe urges SADC to solve crisis


The president of South Africa, Kgalema Motlanthe, said yesterday, Monday the 26 of January, that a resolution to the crisis in Zimbabwe must be found and that the time for talking was over. He said this during an extraordinary Southern African Development Community (SADC) summit.

“We cannot continue talking, talking, talking without concretely proceeding to the implementation stage”, Motlanthe said.

“The convening, once again, of an extraordinary SADC summit demonstrates out collective recognition of our responsibility, concern and empathy concerning the deteriorating political, economic and social situation in the sisterly country of Zimbabwe,” Mr Motlanthe said.

This morning the BBC is reporting that the two main political parties of Zimbabwe, Mugabe’s Zanu-PF and Tsvangirai’s Movement for democratic change (MDC), agreed to form a unity government next month, as stated by president of South Africa, Motlanthe.
