Focus on Zimbabwe

On the eve of the Presidential elections on 9th/10th March the focus of our attention is on Zimbabwe. We stay in solidarity with our friends and the people on the ground: may the vote and will of the people be respected and decide the direction how to overcome the current crisis: We still hope that the winner will take on his responsibility to lead the country wisely and that the looser will accept defeat without causing havoc and bloodshed. In fact the crisis the country is facing is so deep and polarisation went so far that the commitment and strongest efforts of all patriotic Zimbabweans are required to change the tide and reconcile the nation.

We are closely watching the course of events and trying the best to reflect it on discussion here (see Forum).
