I remain in two minds about this. The source is impeccable for me, but I wonder why Kikwete would only be asking now? Did he not get the explanation that other SADc heads got when Tsvangirai was asking about his 15 activists who were abducted in Western Zimbabwe and have not been heard of since? Was the call really to ask about these abductions or was it more to hear whether there was an indication when the whole "insurgency" case might be finalised? Which is it? I have no doubt we will soon know. As I said before, this is the endgame of this whole cooked up "insurgency", which SADC and the Au seem to have bought and which, so far, has bought Mugabe not only time, but amazing latitude.
UPDATE: I have now sent a direct email to President Kikwete asking him to confirm that he has asked about the disappeared activists. The email was sent this evening and should there be reponse, we will, of course, inform all of you here.
