ANC backs the MDC

"If Zimbabwe's elections are to be declared free and fair the Movement for Democratic (MDC) should be allowed to hold public meetings. We have been concerned about several things. The MDC is a party that participates in parliament and it controls several municipalities. This position impairs their ability to interact with their constituencies."

"Over the years we have been continually saying to them that you cannot have a properly registered party restricted in this way." - ANC Secretary-General Kgalema Motlanthe

So that's what they've been doing over the past few years. Shout if you believe Mugabe is listening...
