This latest report from the International Crisis Group, warns that hardliners in President Robert Mugabe’s ruling ZANU-PF party, including senior military leaders, are trying to retain power by force. Tsvangirai’s Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) won the 29 March election with a parliamentary majority and probably more than 50 per cent of the presidential vote. If a reasonably free and fair presidential run-off can be held as scheduled on 27 June, he would almost certainly beat Mugabe again. The ZANU-PF sponsored violence against the opposition and its supporters is aimed to prevent that from happening.
