Independent civic groups, meanwhile, report cheap goods already distributed earlier this month to designated shops in provincial towns being sold only to buyers carrying ruling party membership cards.

I don't see any way out of it. The "ruling party" has a stranglehold on everything. The fellow who actually won the election had to leave because of the violence led by the loser.

With the unemployment rate at 80%, and the food shelves nearly empty, the populace is probably too weak to revolt and they lack the tools to do so.

A nice really big big army with air support armed to the teeth sounds good. But it's a sovereign country.

Zimbabwe to begin power-sharing talks

HARARE ? Zimbabwe's opposition and the ruling party of President Robert Mugabe will sign a deal on Monday laying down a framework for formal talks to end a deep crisis, both sides said.

An official of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) said its leader, Morgan Tsvangirai, would sign the deal with Mr. Mugabe, who won a June 27 presidential election boycotted by Mr. Tsvangirai and widely condemned as unfree by Western nations.

A smaller MDC faction will also sign the document, which according to sources, calls for two weeks of negotiations on broad aspects of the crisis, including the formation of a unity government and how to hold the next elections.


But "sharing" is too much

What "crisis"?

The "ruling party" is eating, has soap and laundry detergent, and is probably the 20% that has work.

IMO, this is just for international show.

I wonder how much...

I wonder how much Lloyds of London would charge for a life insurance policy on Morgan Tsvangirai.

Easy solution.

Arm the 80% other. Equality will happen.
