    It's really sad that this is the direction things are moving in, but I can understand why Tsvangirai is taking this approach. The MDC's oposition was totally futile before - whereas now they can hope to unseat Mugabe's backers slowly from within the government.

    As far as declaring their intentions was concerned, it probably wasn't the smartest move. But then Mugabe is so paranoid and distrusting I presume he would have anticipated this kind of Trojan Horse strategy anyhow.

    Morgan had very little room to move once he signed that document. This is a common mistake made here: He was not pressured to sign, he did so willingly.

    Once he had signed, the pressure was then on him to get into the government.

    You should hear him being mocked in SADC capitals, it is really sad and it all comes down to the fact that everybody realises that he should have negotiated this thing thoroughly, refusing to sign until A, B, C and D had been met to his satisfaction.

    That would have been an awe-inspiring position of strength, because without his signature, Mugabe was doomed.

    But once signed, agreed to form a government, everybody then said: go ahead, form that thing, you are all agreed and you have signed, this is none of our business now.

    I also think that the refusal to give aid to Zimbabwe even by SADC countrues shows just what little confidence our neighbours have not only in Mugabe, but also in Tsvagirai's leadership and capability to withstand Mugabe's guile.

    Still, I agree, they had to save face by saying we are taking the fight to Mugabe.

    Problem is, as the Independent of London says in today's edition: Mugabe appears to be scoring goal after goal so far, while Tsvangirai stands bemused at the goalpost.
