Armed riot police have raided the headquarters of Zimbabwe‘s main opposition party in Harare and arrested scores of activists.
Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) spokesman Nelson Chamisa said those arrested had fled political violence. But the police said the raid was to look for those responsible for arson attacks east of Harare.
The MDC says it won last month’s presidential election, the results of which have not yet been published. The ruling Zanu-PF party, however, says that there is likely to be a run-off, as no candidate gained more than 50% of the vote.
Is it enough wait and watch Mr. Ki-moon, Mr. Mbeki, Mr. Brown, Mr. Solana? Hasn’t come the time to do actively something for the people of Zimbabwe?
