Okay then, Mr Mbeki and Zimbabwe... <div class='quotetop'>QUOTE </div> Excuse me? What exactly has he done to help the MDC get that? Direct funding? Politely asking Robert Mugabe not to incarcerate all of the MDC leadership? I say most of the Zimbabwean exile community in London is laughing at that statement. Mbeki's "quiet diplomacy" has been a disaster for Zimbabwe, while the country lurches from crisis to crisis, he has done little or nothing to help the plight of Zimbabweans. So much so that the MDC have demanded that someone else (preferably from the African Union) be appointed as envoy between the MDC and ZANU-PF because, to be blunt, they think Mbeki either doesn't have the political will to enforce a solution to stop the violence and an illeigal regeime or, worse, is quietly propping up Mugabe for stability's sake. Ever since the present talks have started, Mbeki has tried and tried again (quietly I must add) to bounce MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai into accepting any deal that ZANU-PF lay down on the table. The only solution should be that Tsvangirai should become President eventually after a transistional government but this isn't a fair world by the looks of it. Mbeki's main foreign policy legacy will be his "do nothing" attitude towards Zimbabwe and how he has let the country slowly slide into chaos and disaster. He could have stopped it at any time but his reluctance to depose a man who is famous throughout Africa as one of the major independence leaders has shown that reputations speak louder than actions on the ground.
