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.

Finance Minister Tendai Biti, Tsvangirai’s closest aide in the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC), was also out of the country when Ahmadinejad arrived in Zimbabwe.

  • I am not so fast to laud Tsvangirai. He is not as liberal as he seems. I think he is cut out of the same mold as Bobby Mugabe.

  • Ignorant uneducated fool. If only he knew. This is the big danger in having uneducated leaders. They know very little of what they do.
