Zim democide "not a regional situation"


GABORONE (Reuters) - Southern African leaders meeting this week will not address Zimbabwe's economic and political crisis because it is not a "regional situation", officials said on Tuesday.

The reason that I find this ironic is because if the famine was due to the drought, it WOULD be a regional problem...essentially they are acknowledging that the problem is an internal political problem so they don't want to interfere...

remember this next time you read that all of Zim's problems are due to the weather...
