Morgan Tsvangirai visits the Chikurubi prison
The Times reported yesterday the the newly-sworn-in Prime Minister of Zimbabwe, Morgan Tsvangirai, went to the maximum security prison in Harare to visit the political prisoners currently detained there (including Jestina Mukoko). Of course Tsvangirai's original plan was to hold out on making a deal with Robert Mugabe until the prisoners had been released. Oooooops. The Times sees it as an acid test with regard to whether or not Mugabe will actually be sharing any of the power in the power-sharing deal. Read about it here.
