Zimbabwe's Cycle of Crisis

By Nontando Hadebe 11-10-2009

The outcome of regional intervention in Zimbabwe has been a thirty day ultimatum to implement the agreement and a return to the government by opposition party. However a major sticking point is the trial of one of the opposition government ministers which is going on despite these new developments! This is beginning to be a cycle that starts with violations of aspects of unity agreement, reaction by opposition party, intervention by regional leaders, promises to implement agreement and then the cycle starts again. A weariness in the political process is inevitable. It is necessary to watch and pray. Please continue to pray.
