Tsvangirai answers his critics
In a bid to dispel criticism of his decision to shake the hand of President Mugabe and sit down for face-to-face negotiations, Morgan Tsvangirai, leader of the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) has published an open letter to the people of Zimbabwe.
The letter emphasises the importance of meaningful negotiations with the Zanu-PF leadership if a peaceful settlement to the nation's crisis is to be found. In particular, Mr Tsvangirai calls for a cessation of government-inspired violence - something which previously he had insisted was a necessary pre-condition of talks.
