Tsvangirai Snubs Ahmadinejad
When Mahmoud Ahmadinejad met with Robert Mugabe last week, Zimbabwe PM Morgan Tsvangirai was nowhere to be seen, leaving many to interpret his absence as a snub to the Marxist-Socialist meeting of evil minds.
Representatives for Tsvangirai said he was on “previous engagements” in Botswana and South Africa. However, the Zim PM was apparently angered over Ahmadinejad‘s visit, particularly since his recent re-election in Iran was disputed by many.
Some party members say the Iranian election mirrors what the MDC suffered in a presidential run-off election in 2008, when Mugabe party loyalists killed scores of its supporters.
