President Robert Mugabe and opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai are to attend an emergency summit of regional leaders to discuss Zimbabwe’s recent election.
Saturday’s Zambia summit was called amid the failure of Zimbabwe’s election commission to publish results of the presidential election held 12 days ago. Mr. Tsvangirai is in Botswana, where a minister quoted him as saying he had left a tense Zimbabwe to ask for help.
He accuses Mr. Mugabe of delaying tactics in releasing the poll results. The opposition Movement for Democratic Change claims the government is trying to engineer victory for Mr. Mugabe at a second-round vote.
Before meeting Mugabe should give the results but he doesn’t dare, does he?
