"There is no crisis in Zimbabwe"
...So says the deluded South African President Thabo Mbeki today.
Could he perhaps explain why the presidential election results haven't been released, even though they were counted nearly two weeks ago? Could he explain why many of the country's people are starving? Could he explain why a country so rich in natural resources is on the brink of being a failed state?
For a leader like Mbeki to condone Mugabe's actions is incredible. Why won't South Africa force Mugabe to release the election results? We all know they have the power to do. Mbeki ought to be using it instead of creeping round a failed dictator.
