Zimbabwean opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai takes refuge

Post by shammy on Tue Jun 24, 2008 3:10 am

Zimbabwean opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai has taken refuge in the country's Dutch Embassy, and is calling on the international community to declare Friday's planned presidential elections "null and void".

"We have called upon (outside governments) - in this unprecedented situation - to intervene to ensure that the elections are declared null and void if they can do that, and special elections are then organised in a free and fair atmosphere," Mr Tsvangirai told CNN

His call was echoed by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, who has urged Zimbabwe's authorities to put off the poll in view of the state-sponsored violence which forced Mr Tsvangirai to withdraw from the vote on Sunday.

"I would strongly discourage authorities from going ahead with the run-off (vote on) Friday," Mr Ban told reporters. "It would only deepen the divisions within the country and produce results that cannot be credible."

The Dutch foreign ministry said Mr Tsvangirai had spent the night in the embassy, and that he was welcome to stay for his own security. It said he had not requested asylum.


"O Allah remove the hardship, O Lord of mankind, grant cure for You are the Healer. There is no cure but from You, a cure which leaves no illness behind."
